Ubuntu: How to Upgrade 16.04 Linux Kernel to 4.5?


I need some features in the Linux Kernel 4.5. It would be great if there is coming any support for it soon. I am interested in how you can upgrade 16.04 to Linux kernel 4.5?

How to Upgrade 16.04 Ubuntu's kernel to 4.5?


You can install any kernel to any version of Ubuntu from Mainline Kernel PPA

The 4.5 kernel will not be included in Ubuntu repositories.


As of the time of writing this (December 2016) you can simply install the package linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04-edge to get kernel 4.8.

According to the package description, this will always keep your Ubuntu 16.04 machine up to date with "the latest generic kernel image available".
