Install Linux Kernel 3.17 (Stable) in Linux Mint/PinguyOS/Elementary OS

After two months of development, Linus Torvalds announced the release of Linux kernel 3.17. Among the most notable improvements: new system calls getrandom and seccomp, the possibility of accessing the memory via the file descriptor (memfd), support for restricting operations to the file via a handle, which is enabled by default implementation of Render Nodes, support for dma-buf cross-device synchronization, dropped support for architectures POWER3 and rs64.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

In the new version are made about 12 thousand patches from 1300 developers, the size of the patch - 54 MB (changes in the 10605 files, added 653577 lines of code, removed 668166 lines). About 46% of all presented in 3.17 changes associated with device drivers, approximately 18% of the changes have to update the code for specific hardware architectures, 12% associated with the network stack, with 5% file systems and 3% c internal subsystems of the kernel.


Suitable for Linux Mint 17/16/15/13 Elementary OS 0.2/0.3 PinguyOS 14/12
Installing the Linux Kernel 3.17 into Linux Mint/Pinguy OS or others Ubuntu distrs:
1. The easiest way to use the utility KernelUpdate.
2. Open a terminal, copy and run one of the commands according to the architecture of your system/computer, at your own risk:
For 32-bit (single command):
Linux terminal: ~$cd /tmp && wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-headers-3.17.0-031700-generic_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_i386.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-headers-3.17.0-031700_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-image-3.17.0-031700-generic_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i *.deb[/code]
For 64-bit (single command):
Linux terminal: ~$cd /tmp && wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-headers-3.17.0-031700-generic_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_amd64.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-headers-3.17.0-031700_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-image-3.17.0-031700-generic_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_amd64.deb && sudo dpkg -i *.deb[/code]
3. Update GRUB (GRUB need to upgrade the Linux system where it is installed, if you have more than one)
Linux terminal: ~$sudo update-grub[/code]
Note If you have a boot loader installed BURG, and it should be updated:
Linux terminal: ~$sudo update-burg[/code]
4. At the end of the installation, close all applications and restart the computer the following command:
Linux terminal: ~$sudo reboot[/code]
Once logged in, check the version of the current kernel with the command:
Linux terminal: ~$uname -r[/code]
When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel
If you decide to delete the kernel 3.17,
1. When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below
Linux terminal: ~$sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.17-*[/code]
To return to the previous kernel when booting Grub select Previous Linux versions
