I have an application that works fine on 14.04.1 but does not work fine on 14.04.2.

I found a bug report that indicates the newer kernel in 14.04.2 is the source of this issue. Is possible to downgrade the kernel in 14.04.2 from 3.16.0-39 to 3.13.0-43, which was the kernel used in 14.04.1? Or, do I have to remove 14.04.2 and reinstall 14.04.1?

  • I doubt that a user space application can have this kind of issues. What is that application?

  • It seems that will not solve your issue. In 3.13 kernels there is same problem. And you can't just downgrade to 3.13.0-46, if it was not installed. Just wait till it is fixed, or install 4.0.

  • And it looks like it is being fixed already. Maybe already fixed. What is your current kernel version?

Yes, you can switch to 3.13 kernel easily.

  1. Install 3.13 kernel by running

    sudo apt-get install linux-generic
    
  2. Remove all linux-headers and linux-image packages of 3.19 version using synaptic. This will also remove 3.19 meta packages.

  • notice that 14.04.2 comes with linux-generic-lts-utopic which is 3.16.x.x and linux-generic-lts-vivid is 3.19.x.x which can be manually installed ;)

  • I just meant you mentioned to remove 3.19 version packages in your answer ;)
