How To Install The Linux Kernel 3.11 RC1 On Ubuntu And Linux Mint

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the first release candidate of Linux Kernel 3.11 has been officially released a few days ago. Linus Torvalds himself has announced the release for testing of Kernel 3.11 RC1. According to the mailing list, it does not bring huge improvements since Kernel 3.10, but it has some new code lines:

“This merge window was smaller in terms of number of commits than the 3.10 merge window, but we actually have more new lines. Most of that seems to be in staging – a full third of all changes by line-count is staging, and merging in Lustre is the bulk of that.”
