[Linux kernel 6.0 available!]How to Install New kernel versions in Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based distributions?


You can upgrade to kernel 6.0 on your Ubuntu

Do you want to try a new kernel?
Get some new features.
Get better support for new hardware, faster bug fixes, and more timely bug fixes.
Or, you want to do testing work for the latest kernel.
Now, let’s see how to do a kernel switch in Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based distributions.

First, make sure your system has been updated to the latest version.
Then install the manline tool by adding the cappelikan PPA.
It should be noted that switching the kernel may cause the system to not work properly and file corruption. Before switching, remember to make a backup.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cappelikan/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt -y install mainline

After installing Mainline, you will find it in the application menu.
Open it and install Linux kernel by selecting it from the list (at the very top) and clicking the “Install” button on the right side of the window.
Wait for the installation to complete, close the window and restart your computer when prompted.


Whenever new Linux releases are available, you’ll get a notification from the Mainline tool to update your installation.

If something goes wrong or you no longer want to use the newer kernel, you can always boot your Ubuntu installation with the standard kernel by pressing the Esc key repeatedly when your system starts booting to access the boot menu and select the default kernel.
Or you can simply uninstall the newer kernel using the Mainline tool.
