Updating linux kernal

After reboot the system as usual you will able to see the below screen at system startup which is showing that our linux kernel has been updated to version : 4.10.1-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64.

Just select the updated Kernel which is highlighted below and Press ENTER.

If you use the standard Raspbian update/upgrade process (found here), this will automatically update the kernel to the latest stable version. However, in certain circumstances, you may wish to update to the latest 'bleeding edge' or test kernel. Make sure that it doesn't conflict with your distribution packages.

I'll be demonstrating on a Ubuntu 16.10 desktop, but this tool can be used on any machine (so long as it has a GUI) that runs Ubuntu or a Ubuntu-based distribution. Although the tool won't delete your old kernels, you could cause problems with your machine, should you install an incompatible or unstable kernel.

I highly recommend testing this in a virtual machine before attempting on your production machines.

Cent OS 7 comes with Kernel Version 3.10.0-229.el7.x86_64.

Let’s Upgrade the kernel to Latest version for new updates, Features and make the system performance more better.

Out of the box, my updated Ubuntu 16.10 instance was running the kernel.

The most recent stable kernel I could update to, using UKUU, is 4.10.9 (a significant upgrade).After running the update (and rebooting), I found my machine running 4.10.9 (the kernel I originally wanted).If your Linux machines happen to include a GUI (and you want them running a more recent kernel), UKUU is a great route to kernel upgrade nirvana.It’s interact with your all Hardware devices like Motherboard, Hard-disks, System Memory, I/O devices like Keyboard, Mouse.and manage it.As we know that BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) which is responsible for initialize all hardware and load the kernel in to system memory and Kernel is the first program starts at system startup by loading in to memory then starts the Operating System and then start all services.Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks elrepo-kernel | 2.9 k B elrepo-kernel/primary_db | 1.7 MB Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: centos.* elrepo: ftp.* elrepo-kernel: ftp.* extras: centos.* updates: centos.Resolving Dependencies -- Finished Dependency Resolution Dependencies Resolved ================================================================================ Package Arch Version Repository Size ================================================================================ Installing: kernel-ml x86_64 4.10.1-1.el7.elrepo elrepo-kernel 40 M Transaction Summary ================================================================================ Install 1 Package Total download size: 40 M Installed size: 183 M Downloading packages: kernel-ml-4.10.1-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64| 40 MB Running transaction check Running transaction test Transaction test succeeded Running transaction Warning: RPMDB altered outside of yum.
