    And how does one go about REMOVING it? Power management is all messed up on my Core i5 Ivybridge.

    • hyperion says:

      What OS are you running?
      Get in you grub menu while booting to start the old kernel.
      I’ll try to tell you how to remove it ^^

      • Geekster says:

        To remove the Linux kernel 3.10, do:

        sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.10* linux-image-3.10*

        After you remove a kernel, don’t forget to update the grub:

        sudo update-grub

        • hyperion says:

          Do I have to boot in kernel 3.10 in order to use these commands?

          • Geekster says:

            no, it is not mandatory.

          • R S Chakravarti says:

            Debian has a 3.10 kernel in the Experimental repository. This may be more suitable for Debian Sid.

            At the time you remove 3.10 (or any kernel), it is best if you are not running it. Assuming there is another kernel installed, boot into it and remove the kernel you don’t want. At least in Debian, update-grub will run automatically.

            Looking at your list, it looks like Debian is a derivative of Ubuntu instead of the other way around!

          • R S Chakravarti says:

            No. It would be better if some other kernel is running.

        • R S Chakravarti says:

          In Debian this step is not required. When a kernel is removed, update-grub runs.

    • Ragu Bhat says:

      Instead of removing the generic Debian kernel v3.10.x, why don’t you try installing the userspace apps for power control on your laptop? It works really well and there is excellent support for the i5 line of Intel processors. YMMV.

  2. Nataraj says:

    I don’t find 3.10 or even 3.9 kernels in kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline for the 12.04 (precise) release. Is there any safe download available for a 3.9 or greater kernel package for the 12.04 LTS release?
