README.md

This is a tiny utility that can ease the process of updating kernels on Ubuntu.

It is automatically installing the latest build from the kernel-ppa/mainline PPA repository.

It supports installing both 'generic' and 'lowlatency' kernel flavors.

Installation

go get github.com/cristim/kernel-update

Usage

Assuming $GOPATH/bin is in your PATH, this should work out of the box:

kernel-update -flavor lowlatency
