Upgrading Linux Mint 11 kernel

Previously I got an Linux kernel upgrade from 2.6.38-8 to 3.0.0-12 from the Ubuntu Natty repository, I could not find the site which gave the instruction. Today I will want to upgrade my Kernel 3.0.0-12 to 3.1.4.

I found out that I can actually get various compiled Kernel from here http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/

Upgrade in ORDER

1. Install linux header that ends with all.deb:

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.1.4-030104_3.1.4-030104.201111281851_all.deb

2. Install linux header that ends with amd64.deb:

sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-3.1.4-030104-generic_3.1.4-030104.201111281851_amd64.deb

3. Install linux image that ends with amd64.deb:

sudo dpkg -i linux-image-3.1.4-030104-generic_3.1.4-030104.201111281851_amd64.deb

4. Grub will be upgraded after linux image is installed. Reboot
