A stable version of Linux 3.4 has been released recently. In this tutorial we will help you install this latest release on a system running Ubuntu 12.04/11.10. To easily install Linux Kernel 3.4.0 on Ubuntu, we will use repositories of Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal).

For new changes and improvements in Kernel 3.4, you can refer to this page. For manual installation, you can go to this page and download the appropriate Debian packages.

Linux Kernel 3.4.0 Installation (i386 & amd64)


Open the terminal and run this command to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

At the end of the file, add the following lines:

# Ubuntu Quantal Quetzal Repositories
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu quantal-security main universe restricted multiverse
deb-src http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu quantal-security main universe restricted multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main universe restricted multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main universe restricted multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main universe restricted multiverse
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main universe restricted multiverse

Save your file and close it, then update your repositories with this command:

sudo apt-get update

You can now install the Linux Kernel 3.4.0 with this command:

sudo apt-get install linux

For PAE-Kernel, install with this command:

sudo apt-get install linux-generic-pae

Warning: Install this kernel at your own risk! Before restarting your system, make sure you re-install your system device drivers (graphics card, sound cards, wireless cards, etc.).

After completing the installation, restart your system. After succeeding in installing Kernel 3.4.0, remove the Ubuntu 12.10 repositories.

Good luck!
