In this article I will show you how to install the Linux Kernel 3.2.50 on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Debian Jessie, Debian Sid, Debian Wheezy, Debian Squeeze, Elementary OS, Knoppix, Crunchbang OS, Deepin and other Debian / Ubuntu based Linux systems.

Because the deb packages are available via kernel.ubuntu.com, we don’t have to compile the kernel by hand. Follow the instructions for your system architecture, in order to get a successful installation.

Unfortunatelly, kernel.ubuntu.com has kernel packages only for amd64 (64 bit) systems. I will update the article if / when the i386 (32 bit) packages will be added to the site.
