Upgrading the Linux Kernel to Version 3.19.2

See in this tutorial how to install version 3.19.2 on Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, Ubuntu 14.10 and Linux Mint 17 and consequently the derivatives of these distributions.

Linux 3.19.2 kernel on Ubuntu

Learn how to install Kernel 3.19.2 on Ubuntu and derivatives

Kernel 3.19.2 will most likely be the Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet Kernel that comes out next month, however you can use it even on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS or Ubuntu 14.10, Linux Mint 17 and any other distro derived from these systems, the Official update tends to take a long time to come out as these distros prefer to work with a slightly older kernel, especially Ubuntu LTS systems because of the stability.

Good languages ??say that this version of Kernel has a better performance when it comes to games, and as it interests me I decided to test, before saying that there is indeed a slight improvement, but I had problems at startup, pointing out some errors which caused a certain slowdown when starting the system, 15 seconds longer than normal. Another problem I found was when trying to install the drivers for my Nvidia video card, with the generic driver the system worked normally but when installing the specific driver, which we formerly called "owner", the system would not start, so the warning .

Upgrading the kernel to version 3.19.2

The kernel is a very sensitive part of the operating system, it makes the direct communication between your programs and the hardware, This should preferably be done by users who have experience with the operating system. so that they can reverse any problems that may occur. On the other hand, how to gain experience without making mistakes, right?

If you have a 32-bit system you must execute these commands sequentially;

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.19.2-vivid/linux-headers-3.19.2-031902_3.19.2-031902.201503181436_all.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.19.2-vivid/linux-headers-3.19.2-031902-generic_3.19.2-031902.201503181436_i386.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.19.2-vivid/linux-image-3.19.2-031902-generic_3.19.2-031902.201503181436_i386.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.19 * .deb linux-image-3.19 * .deb

And restart your computer if you use a 64-bit system use these commands below:

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.19.2-vivid/linux-headers-3.19.2-031902_3.19.2-031902.201503181436_all.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.19.2-vivid/linux-headers-3.19.2-031902-generic_3.19.2-031902.201503181436_amd64.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.19.2-vivid/linux-image-3.19.2-031902-generic_3.19.2-031902.201503181436_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.19 * .deb linux-image-3.19 * .deb

And at the end of the process restart the computer to be able to use the new kernel.

If you have a problem with it, as I had, you should restart the computer from the GRUB screen and in the advanced options select the previous version of Kernel you have installed on the computer, start it and remove the new kernel with problems with this one. command:

sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.19.2 linux-image-3.19.2

sudo update-grub
