Script To Upgrade Kernel To v3.2-rc7-precise For Ubuntu 11.10

Here is another script for those who like to test new kernels. As always … use on our own risk it might break your system. Works fine for me on my Dell Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz × 8 with an GeForce GT 220/PCI/SSE2, 3.9 GiB memory, 32 bit system. Probably won’t work with ATI cards.


First download the file and extract the content into your download folder. After that make the file executable using the following command line in a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window):

For 32 bit systems:
chmod +x Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc7-precise-32bit

For 64 bit systems:
chmod +X Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc7-precise-64bit


To run the script copy+paste the following line:

For 32 bit systems:
sudo ./Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc7-precise-32bit

For 64 bit systems:
sudo ./Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc7-precise-64bit


Download the script for 32 bit systems
Download the script for 64 bit systems
