Script To Upgrade Your Kernel To Version 3.2 RC4 For Ubuntu 11.10

Here is a script that will upgrade your kernel to version 3.2 rc4. Use on your own risk it might break your system.


I tested tested the kernel for 32 bit systems on my pc with an nvidia video card and it works fine but on my laptop with an ati video card the new kernel causes some problems, it boots but it it doesn’t show the login screen.

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:

For 32 bit systems:
chmod +x Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc4-oneiric-32bit

For 64 bit systems:
chmod +x Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc4-oneiric-64bit

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

For 32 bit systems:
sudo ./Downloads Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc4-oneiric-32bit

For 64 bit systems:
sudo ./Downloads Downloads/upgrade-kernel-to-3.2-rc4-oneiric-64bit

Download script for 64 bit systems

If you run into any problems and Ubuntu doesn’t start or works like it did before the kernel upgrade. Restart your system and press the left Shift button at start-up to bring up the grub menu. In the grub menu select Previous Linux versions and select kernel 3.0.0.14 (or an older version) and press the Enter button.
