Kernel 3.18.2 has been released recently bringing more updates and bug fixes. As usual we are going to see how to install it under Ubuntu/Linux Mint using a sipmple bash script. We also provide low-latency kernel installation, but it's optional and only if you need it.

Bear in mind that we are not responsible for any damage that occur for your system. Install the kernel at your own risk.

Linux Kernel 3.18.2 Installation

To install kernel 3.18.2 in Ubuntu or Linux Mint, run the following commands:

cd /tmp 
wget http://tinyurl.com/nvmzdcf -O kernel-3.18.2 
chmod +x kernel-3.18.2 
sudo sh kernel-3.18.2 
sudo reboot

If you need a low latency system, then you can install low-latency kernels using these commands at your own risk:

sudo apt-get install php5-cli 
cd /tmp 
wget http://goo.gl/RBA9lG -O low-latency-kernel 
chmod +x low-latency-kernel 
sudo ./low-latency-kernel

From the list that appears, type "3.18" as kernel version and press Enter:

Then wait for the script to download and install needed files for your system. When it finishes, run this command:

sudo reboot
