    hey thanks for this.

    I am running elementary OS and keen to bring the kernel up to the latest, but have read elsewhere that some users have had issues with this (stability, wifi, function keys not working etc etc).

    If i move to the latest kernel and have such issues, is there a way to roll it back?

    Thanks

    Matt

      yes, when you move to another kernel, you choose the kernel you want to use from the grub. if you have issues, boot with the kernel that works well.

        I’m not sure I know what that means, but I am sure I will be here bugging you again if it all goes horribly wrong, haha! Thanks for the tutorial and for the reply.
