Install Linux Kernel (Stable) on Linux Mint

Linux Kernel 4.3.3 is the third adjustment kernel release version 4.3. List of changes in the kernel 4.3.3 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.

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 13/14/15/16/17/17.1/17.2/17.3 Elementary OS 0.2/0.3 PinguyOS 14/12 Deepin 2014.3
 
Installing the Linux Kernel 4.3.3 into Linux Mint or others Ubuntu distrs:
Reminder to users of computers with Nvidia/AMD. Before installing the kernel, it is advisable to switch to the free driver.
1. 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/v4.3.3-wily/linux-headers-4.3.3-040303-generic_4.3.3-040303.201512150130_i386.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.3.3-wily/linux-headers-4.3.3-040303_4.3.3-040303.201512150130_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.3.3-wily/linux-image-4.3.3-040303-generic_4.3.3-040303.201512150130_i386.deb; sudo dpkg -i *.deb
For 64-bit (single command):

cd /tmp; wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.3.3-wily/linux-headers-4.3.3-040303-generic_4.3.3-040303.201512150130_amd64.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.3.3-wily/linux-headers-4.3.3-040303_4.3.3-040303.201512150130_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.3.3-wily/linux-image-4.3.3-040303-generic_4.3.3-040303.201512150130_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 4.3.3,
1. When the computer bootsthe GRUB menu, select your old kernelAfter booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below
2. 

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.3.3-*

3. And again update GRUB or BURG

sudo update-grub

Good Luck!!!

    Ok an update
    I installed this Kernel on my Alienware 18
    it was working fine then I updated mt Nvida Drivers to the latest
    Then it crashed to Fallback mode
    First I nu-installed the Kernel
    Still didn't fix it
    and everything was limited on my Computer
    But I managed to revert back to the X standard drivers
    now everything is all ok again

    When you said this: "Reminder to users of computers with Nvidia/AMD. Before installing the kernel, it is advisable to switch to the free driver."

    I don't understand the part about "free driver." If this is something else to install first - where is it found, please?

    Thanks.


    When you open "Driver Manager" the "fglrx" are from Nvidia/AMD, the xserver-xorn..is from community the free driver for your graphics card.

    Btw i went back on previous kernel, this one didnt show me the wifi icon in order to connect to internet :S
