4. Upgrading the kernel in Debian GNU/Linux
The latest stable kernel at this time of writing is 22.214.171.124.
To check your current kernel version uname -a
Upgrading the Linux kernel to 126.96.36.199 (the latest)
apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.17-6-686 kernel-source-2.6.17 kernel-headers-2.6.17-6-686 cd /usr/src tar xjvf kernel-source-2.6.17.tar.bz2 rm linux ln -s kernel-source-2.6.17 linux
Reboot. As Grub starts, you should see the latest 188.8.131.52 kernel version listed in the boot options! You are now using the latest kernel!
