Title: Installing 3.13 Kernel
Post by: TuxInAGalaxy on October 15, 2016, 09:49:23 PM
I already looked that this.... https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-software/linux-lite-kernel/ (https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-software/linux-lite-kernel/)  And I see that we got a thread going on and on and on.

In Linux Mint there is a simple graphical installer for the kernels.  When I'm running Mint I often have more than one kernel on my system and I also have the grub customizer to help me keep things in the order I want them in. 

Currently I am running this machine specs.

I think I'm having some issues due to the 4.4.0-42-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)  I want to try and install the 3.13 kernel because when I was running Mint on this machine it seemed to run happier on that kernel. 

One thing I don't understand about Ubuntu, Linux Lite and others based on Ubuntu is how to locate and install other kernels. 

How can I can install kernel 3.13?

Don't worry if I can only get some other kernels installed I can recover from boot errors.  I make the grub menu show up and all I need to do is select a different kernel if something doesn't go right.

Also how do you remove a kernel from Lite?

You can use Install/Remove Software (ie. Synaptic Package Manager) to install the linux header and linux image of the kernel version you want.  You can then use Lite Tweaks to remove the kernel(s) you don't want.  But I don't know if running a Ubuntu 16.04 based version of Linux Lite (ie. the 3.x series) will fair well with the 3.13 kernel.  It is maintained for the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS based distros.
