Install Linux Kernel 4.10 (Stable) on Linux Mint

System

Install Linux Kernel 4.10 (Stable) on Linux MintLinus Torvalds introduced the Linux kernel 4.10. 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.

 

The easiest way to install any kernel - program UKUU

 

Install UKUU on Linux Mint.
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ukuu
Reminder to users of computers with Nvidia/AMD. Before installing the kernel, it is advisable to switch to the free driver.
If you decide to delete the kernel 4.10,
1. When the computer boots, the GRUB menu, select your old kernel. After booting the system, remove the new kernel by command below
2. Use program UKUU or command:
sudo apt purge linux-image-4.10-*
3. And update GRUB or BURG
sudo update-grub
To return to the previous kernel when booting Grub select Previous Linux versions
Good Luck!!!

Is Mint 18 (Mate, 64-bit) completely stable with a 4.10 kernel? Anyone experienced problems when upgrading from the default 4.4 to 4.10? The Mintguide warning is somewhat off-putting...
