I will keep updating this thread as new Kernels come out.

Install/Upgrade to Linux Kernel 3.18 in Ubuntu 14.04/14.10
 

Date

Sun, 7 Dec 2014 16:10:58 -0800

Subject

Linux 3.18 released

From

Linus Torvalds <>

It's been a quiet week, and the patch from rc7 is tiny, so 3.18 is out.

I'd love to say that we've figured out the problem that plagues 3.17
for a couple of people, but we haven't. At the same time, there's
absolutely no point in having everybody else twiddling their thumbs
when a couple of people are actively trying to bisect an older issue,
so holding up the release just didn't make sense. Especially since
that would just have then held things up entirely over the holiday
break.

So the merge window for 3.19 is open, and DaveJ will hopefully get his
bisection done (or at least narrow things down sufficiently that we
have that "Ahaa" moment) over the next week. But in solidarity with
Dave (and to make my life easier too ;) let's try to avoid introducing
any _new_ nasty issues, ok?

What’s New in the Linux Kernel 3.18:
The Linux 3.18 Kernel brings many great changes, here’s some of the highlights for end-users:

  • Unified Video Decoder (UVD) support for old ATI/AMD GPUs of the Radeon HD 3000 series.
  • Re-clocking improvements for AMD’s Radeon driver.
  • Userptr support for AMD Radeon GPUs.
  • Razer Sabertooth support and other hardware input devices improvements for gamers.
  • Faster suspend and resume for large Linux servers.
  • Btrfs and F2FS improvements.
  • Para-virtualized SCSI (pvSCSI) support for Xen virtualization.
  • DisplayPort audio support, fan control improvements and various other enhancements for open-source NVIDIA driver.
  • OverlayFS was finally merged into Linux Kernel 3.18

Install / Upgrade to Linux Kernel 3.18 in Ubuntu:
Download Kernel 3.18 (.deb)
 
First check out your OS type, 32-bit (i386) or 64-bit (amd64), then download and install the packages below in order:

  • linux-headers-3.18.0-031800_xxx_all.deb
  • linux-headers-3.18.0-031800-generic_3.18.0-031800.xxx_i386/amd64.deb
  • linux-image-3.18.0-031800-generic_3.18.0-031800.xxx_i386/amd64.deb

For Ubuntu Servers without UI, run the commands below one by one to download & install the kernel debs.
 
64 Bit system.

cd /tmp/

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.18-vivid/linux-headers-3.18.0-031800-generic_3.18.0-031800.201412071935_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.18.0-*.deb linux-image-3.18.0-*.deb

When done, restart your computer.
NOTE: If you’re running with a proprietary video driver, either switch to open-source driver or reinstall the latest (For Nvidia,  343.36 >).
 
If for some reason, the new kernel is not working properly or you wish to remove it, reboot with the previous Kernel (Grub boot loader -> Advanced -> select previous kernel) and run below command to remove Linux Kernel 3.18:
 

sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.18.0-* linux-image-3.18.0-* && sudo update-grub

 
If you have questions,  please do not reply here start a new post, This will be an ongoing thing and we don't want it cluttered up with questions or chit chat

 

Thank you

Nick

I've got most of my distros to automatically check and notify me about updates and upgrades to my distros and programs.  Then I can install them thru the updater.  Will that take care of this?  I've tried updating some things you've posted about manually and terminal said it was already up to date.  A couple days ago I had one of those I had to reboot for.  Just wondering.  Thanks.

Is it recommended to do these updates on a regular basis or update only if you are having issues with your current kernel?

My thinking on kernel updates is this - if you want to be on the bleeding edge of the technology and have the latest and greatest while not minding the bugs that may come included, then update the kernel as much as you like. But if you want more of a stable system then stay with what works.

Of couse that is my opinion. I usually just let the updater install the kernel when ubuntu pushes out a new one.

I would  have to agree with that. I have not had issues with Kernel updates, And if you do they are easy enough to remove.

Due to the fact that Canonical has discovered a bunch of kernel exploits on Ubuntu 14.10, they have decided to update the kernel. Kernel 3.16.0.31-generic (3.16.0-31.41) have been implemented on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn.

The ABI has been changed  the kernel packages have a new version number,  all the third party kernel modules you might have installed need to be recompiled. Also, the linux-restricted-modules have to be reinstalled, but it is available via the official repositories.

 

To get the updates.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules
