Anther Kernel released for Ubuntu systems that brings more new features and support for more drivers. You can find full changelog for Linux Kernel 3.4.5 here. Before showing you the installation of this kernel, you have to bear in mind that upgrading to a new kernel may render your system unstable. Also, you may lose some drivers for NVIDIA or AMD graphics cards, wireless cards, etc. So, install this kernel at your own risk.

Kernel 3.4.5 Installation

I have created a small bash script that will help you install the Linux Kernel with just few commands without bothering typing many lengthy lines of commands in the terminal. You can find here the Debian packages that will be installed on your system.

Open now the terminal and install Linux Kernel 3.4.5 on Ubuntu 12.04/11.10 or older and any other Ubuntu-based system such as Linux Mint 13 (Maya) or older:

cd /tmp && wget -O linux-kernel-3.4.5 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/47950494/upubuntu.com/linux-kernel-3.4.5

chmod +x linux-kernel-3.4.5 && sudo sh linux-kernel-3.4.5

After restarting your computer, make sure the kernel is well installed with this command:

uname -r



If you wish to revert back to the previous Kernel and uninstall the new one, run the following command:

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.4.5-030405-generic

Good luck!
