Well, on the previous post I do give tutorial on how to compile custom kernel on your Ubuntu box debian way. But it seem like it's hard for beginner to start compiling, and stripping the kernel and choose a appropriate driver to be compiled along.
So here is the easy way for Ubuntu users to upgrade to latest kernel 2.6.25 which has been release on the launchpad by the development team.
sudo vi /etc/apt/source.listEdit the source.list file and add the following line at the end of the files:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kernel-ppa/ubuntu hardy mainSave and exit the text editor, and run:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/kernel-ppa/ubuntu hardy main
sudo apt-get updateAfter finish updating your apt list, you need to install the new kernel by running this command:
sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.25-1-generic linux-headers-2.6.25-1This command will install the 2.6.25 kernel with the Ubuntu Patches already been implement. So no need to wirries about your drivers and etc. But this isnt a stable release yet. I've been reading about kernel 2.6.25 to be included officially on the hardy repo as this 8.04 is a LTS.
