For Linux Kernel hardcore who like to update and try the latest Linux Kernel for Ubuntu, I have an interested post for you. Today, I'd like to share the Linux Kernel 3.7.4 download links which is available in deb packages, so you can install (or remove it) easily with Ubuntu's package manager, no need to compile Linux Kernel by yourself. The Linux Kernel 3.7.4 is a maintenance release to brings various bug fixes, new device driver, and other improvements. As it's a maintenance release, you should not install Kernel 3.7.4 on a production system because it have not been released by Ubuntu for a regular system upgrade.
Linux Kernel 3.7.4 changes and improvements:
- wlan-ng: Fix clamping of returned SSID length
- Add support for Broadcom TruManage redirected serial port
- ifx6x60:Delete SPI timer when shut down port
- USB: option: blacklist network interface on ONDA MT8205 4G LTE
- USB: option: add TP-LINK HSUPA Modem MA180
- igb: release already assigned MSI-X interrupts if setup fails
- intel-iommu: Prevent devices with RMRRs from being placed into SI Domain
- drm/radeon: fix a bogus kfree
- usb: chipidea: Allow disabling streaming not only in udc mode
- ALSA: usb - fix race in creation of M-Audio Fast track pro driver
- x86/Sandy Bridge: reserve pages when integrated graphics is present
- And more!
As usual, please download all deb packages depending on your system architecture (32bit or 64bit) and put them in the same folder.
Once downloaded, open the Terminal and change working directory to the folder you save the deb packages into, then run the following command:
- sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Good luck :)
