You may download it using this quick link:

Save the archive and extract the files. Double click on (execute in terminal). If you're not sure about an option, press Enter and it will select the default answer.

..or execute this command (one-liner):

cd /tmp; rm -rf medigeek-kmp*; wget --no-check-certificate -O kmpd.tar.gz; tar xzf kmpd.tar.gz; cd medigeek-*; python

If you want more options, e.g. disable the release candidate filter and/or prefer the latest stable release, check out the available arguments:

python --help


To uninstall the kernel packages, remember to boot to a different kernel image first. Then you can use your favourite package manager to uninstall the packages. For example if you installed version 3.5.3, you can uninstall it using this command:

sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.5.3.* linux-image-extra-3.5.3.* linux-headers-3.5.3.*
