How To Install The Linux Kernel 3.11 RC7 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivates

Hello Linux Geeksters. The Linux Kernel 3.11 RC7 has been released 22 years after Linus Torvalds has made the first public release of his Linux system.

This is what Linus said in the mailing lists, refering to the “mail that started it all“.

I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it’s big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about anything else out there under the sun. This has been brewing since april 1991, and is still not ready. I’d like any feedback on things people like/dislike in Linux 3.11-rc7.

In this article I will show you how to install the Linux Kernel 3.11 RC7 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Debian Sid, Debian Jessie, Debian Wheezy, Crunchbang OS, Knoppix, Deepin and other Debian and Ubuntu derivates.

Because the kernel packages are available as deb files on kernel.ubuntu.com, installing Kernel 3.11 RC7 is easy, because we don’t need to compile anything from sources. Follow the instructions for your system’s architecture, and the installation should run smooth.
