apt-get kernel-sources

I'm sorry for this n00b question but I'm just starting.
My question is as follows:

Can I apt-get the newest kernel-sources and simply reboot to work with the new kernel?

By this time you should have compiled that kernel I guess ;) For others reading this: I found this tutorial very good starting point.

Here is another link that helped this newbie with compiling a 2.6 kernel. Worked like a charm. I had no problems whatsoever.

You can apt-get kernel-image-2.X.X... and then reboot.

That's the way you want it!

Follow the next steps:
Code: Select all
apt-cache search kernel-image | grep X.X

Substitute X.X for the kernel version of your taste (2.4 or 2.6)
Now you wil see a list of packages that complies with your search.

2. Choose the most recent version and then
Code: Select all
apt-get install kernel-image-Y.Y.*

where Y.Y.* is something like 2.6.9-1-686.

3. Tadaaaa, you've just installed a new kernel. When you reboot you will see your new kernel in the bootloader.
