Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In particular I would like to install the mainline kernel debs before I reboot after installing the system, I am well aware of which deb files I need, just not sure of how to install them before rebooting to the HDD
I have tried using chroot then running dpkg -i /path/to/linux-*.deb but I get errors involving permission denied about /dev/null
For some reason kernel.ubuntu.com seems to be down right now
