Linux Kernel 3.10.23 LTS

The latest Kernel Long Term Support now is at 3.10.23, which brings many updated drivers (Radeon, Ethernet, HID), several IPv4 and IPv6 fixes, as well as other changes. See the changlog for details.

Linux kernel 3.10.23 is quite big release and users of Kernel 3.10 series are urged to upgrade as soon as possible. Here’s how to do it in Ubuntu, Linux Mint and their derivatives.

Install / Upgrade Kernel 3.10.23:

1. Download the DEBs:

Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, run commands below one by one to download Kernel DEB packages (available in Ubuntu Kernel page):

For 32 bit system:

cd ~/Downloads/




For 64 bit system:

cd ~/Downloads/




2. Install the Kernel:

cd ~/Downloads/ && sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.10.23-*.deb linux-image-3.10.23-*.deb

Once installed restart computer and done.

NOTE: If you’re using proprietary drivers, you may need to rebuild or re-install it after upgraded to new kernel version.

If for some reason this kernel does not work properly for you, restart and boot into Grub -> Advanced -> select previous kernel. Then remove Linux Kernel 3.10.24 via commands below:

sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.10.23-* linux-image-3.10.23-*
