Install Linux Kernel 4.1.2 (Stable) on Linux Mint

Install Linux Kernel (Stable) on Linux Mint

Linux Kernel 4.1.2 is the second adjustment kernel release version 4.1. List of changes in the kernel 4.1.2 can be found HERE. You can download the relevant deb packages from HERE and install them. Or just follow the instructions given below that will help you to install a new kernel multiple commands in terminal.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Warning. The Linux kernel is a critical element of the system. To do the upgrade costs when one of your hardware devices is not working properly, and the new kernel may fix this problem. But at the same time installing a new kernel unnecessarily can lead to undesirable regressions, such as: no network connection, no sound or even the inability to boot the system, so install a new kernel on your own risk.


Suitable for Linux Mint 13/14/15/16/17/17.1/17.2 Elementary OS 0.2/0.3 PinguyOS 14/12 Deepin 2014.3
Installing the Linux Kernel 4.1.2 into Linux Mint 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):

cd /tmp; wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.2-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.2-040102-generic_4.1.2-040102.201507101335_i386.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.2-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.2-040102_4.1.2-040102.201507101335_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.2-unstable/linux-image-4.1.2-040102-generic_4.1.2-040102.201507101335_i386.deb; sudo dpkg -i *.deb

For 64-bit (single command):

cd /tmp; wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.2-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.2-040102-generic_4.1.2-040102.201507101335_amd64.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.2-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.2-040102_4.1.2-040102.201507101335_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.2-unstable/linux-image-4.1.2-040102-generic_4.1.2-040102.201507101335_amd64.deb; sudo dpkg -i *.deb

2. Update GRUB (GRUB need to upgrade the Linux system where it is installed, if you have more than one)

sudo update-grub

Note If you have a boot loader installed BURG, and it should be updated:

sudo update-burg

3. At the end of the installation, close all applications and restart the computer the following command:

sudo reboot

Once logged in, check the version of the current kernel with the command:

uname -r

If you decide to delete the kernel 4.1.2,
1. When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.1.2-* linux-headers-4.1.2-*

3. And again update GRUB or BURG
To return to the previous kernel when booting Grub select Previous Linux versions
Good Luck!!!
