Hi I read some where that the current build of the Linux kernel is 3.5 but I am running 3.2 are there any benefits from updating and what are the risks.

Could someone also post the code to update please.

You should keep your computer updated, that would take care of everything. I would not recommend manually updating the kernel yourself (i.e., without Update Manager or some other package management utility).


I won't say nothing about 'should you' but yes, you can.

Here's what I found while reading online.


It's for kernel version 3.4, but the answer can be extended to other versions.
