Available Ubuntu Kernel Versions Per Release

By | 2010/01/17

I know many people are curious regarding which Ubuntu kernel is available, and how the kernels differ between distributions. I thought it would be interesting to create a reference outlining each of the supported and available kernels on Ubuntu, and which release they correspond to. I will try to keep this page updated with the latest information regarding Ubuntu kernel versions, including:

  • Ubuntu Release (supported releases only)
  • Kernel Version (including main and updates)
  • Installation / Upgrade Instructions (how to install a specific kernel)

I hope this ends up becoming a useful quick reference for the community.

    Useful information. I will selfishly attract your attention to my website though. It has the list of all Ubuntu kernel versions and it’s updated hourly: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package_metas?exact_match=1&name=linux

    That’s true for the kernel, but that’s also true for any other package available in Ubuntu. You can find all versions sorted by Ubuntu release, repository and what I call the “level” (ex: security, updates, proposed…). It also lists the versions of packages distributed in PPAs. For example for KDE: http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package_metas?exact_match=1&name=kdebase

    And for each new version, the changelog is available. This is for the latest Karmic kernel for example (2.6.31-18): http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/packages/show/154014
