I am running kernel version: 2.6.35-27-generic

I want kernel version: 2.6.35-22-generic OR 2.6.35-25-generic

I have previously uninstalled both of the previous. A few scripts that I forgot to test (and worked in old kernels) no longer work in 35-27

I think .35-22 would be the best option

You should first check whether these versions are still in the repositories with:

sudo aptitude search linux-image-2.6.35-22-generic (or 35-25 for the other version)

If they are indeed still there, just install the one you want with:

sudo aptitude install linux-image-2.6.35-22-generic

otherwise, follow this link (for 2.6.35-22) or this (for 2.6.35-25)

Thanks - I thought I had tried that but obviously something stopped the installation. Works now. – drnessie Apr 8 '11 at 19:41
Glad to hear that ;-) – Pavlos G. Apr 9 '11 at 1:53
Woops - I got the script working in the new kernel :). At least this question will be a resource for others trying to find this out. – drnessie Apr 9 '11 at 5:51
