Script To Upgrade Your Kernel To Version 3.1 For Ubuntu 11.10

Here are two scripts that will upgrade your kernel to kernel version 3.1. I made a script for 32 and for 64 bit systems. As always with upgrading the kernel… it might break your system. I downloaded and installed all the files on a 32 bit system and had no problems after the upgrade.


Download the script for your system and extract the contents into your downloads folder. Open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) and to make the script executable copy+paste the following line in the terminal window:

32 Bit Systems:
chmod +x Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.1-32bit

64 Bit Systems:
chmod +x Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.1-64bit

To run the script copy+paste the following line in your terminal window:

32 Bit Systems:
sudo ./Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.1-32bit

64 Bit Systems:
sudo ./Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.1-64bit


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

If you want to do the upgrade yourself here is how you do it… Open a terminal window and copy+paste the following lines:

32 Bit Systems:
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.1-oneiric/linux-headers-3.1.0-030100_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.1.0-030100_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_all.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.1-oneiric/linux-headers-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_i386.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_i386.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.1-oneiric/linux-image-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_i386.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-image-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_i386.deb

For 64 Bit Systems:
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.1-oneiric/linux-headers-3.1.0-030100_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_all.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.1.0-030100_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_all.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.1-oneiric/linux-headers-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_amd64.deb

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.1-oneiric/linux-image-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-image-3.1.0-030100-generic_3.1.0-030100.201110241006_amd64.deb

When installed reboot your computer and to check if the upgrade worked open a terminal window and copy+paste the following line:

uname -r

Result should look like this: 3.1.0-030100-generic
