  • This is what I found on Ubuntu's forums.

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/119080/how-to-update-kernel-to-the-latest-mainline-version-without-any-distro-upgrade

    The simplest set of instructions I always used for kernel upgrade / downgrade are by ubuntuforums.org user by the name of lykwydchykyn (url modified by me for this post):

    Go here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
    Download 3 (maybe 4) debs to a folder somewhere:

    linux-headers-VERSION-NUMBER_all.deb
    linux-headers-VERSION-NUMBER_amd64.deb
    linux-image-VERSION-NUMBER_amd64.deb
    linux-image-extra-VERSION-NUMBER_amd64.deb # if available
    Install the debs with whatever package manager front-end you use (is gdebi still around?), or use these commands:

    cd /path/to/folder/where/you/put/the/debs
    sudo dpkg -i .deb

    So I'm sure that we know what the answer will be here (crazy manager who is trying to sabotage the company) but you should really never do this. The entire version of Ubuntu and everything around it is based on the kernel. The kernel should match exactly or you are going down a path of serious complexity.

    We already know that in a previous post your manager required you to use an old version of Ubuntu which is done to select a specific, old kernel version. Now he is, presumably, forcing you to move to an incompatible kernel..... why?

    NO my manager is not giving any task.But searching to do a task which gives some information about the Linux OS.Since I am worked on that but the kernel updated but there is an error came while starting with new kernel 4.2.So I have deleted the kernel 4.2 from the system and then used the older kernel 3.13

    Yes, I'm not aware of any business process that would have you changing the kernel in Ubuntu. That's a fun thing to try for a hobby just to see if you can, but it is not a normal business process as it does not lead to stability and reliability. Imagine running Windows XP but deciding to install the Windows 10 kernel. Not likely going to work and no business has ever tried to do this. But it might be fun to know "if you could."
