I am new to Ubuntu. I am trying to install the latest kernel (4.6), so I can get a few functions on my Surface Pro to work.
I ran these commands:
wget https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/linux-4.6.tar.xz tar zxvf linux-4.6.tar.xz cd linux-4.6
But this is what I get.
$ wget https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/linux-4.6.tar.xz HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK Length: 89461728 (85M) [application/x-xz] Saving to: ‘linux-4.6.tar.xz’ linux-4.6.tar.xz 100%[===================>] 85.32M 1.99MB/s in 46s 2016-05-27 11:52:02 (1.84 MB/s) - ‘linux-4.6.tar.xz’ saved [89461728/89461728] $ tar zxvf linux-4.6.tar.xz gzip: stdin: not in gzip format tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now $ cd linux-4.6 bash: cd: linux-4.6: No such file or directory
I don't know how to get past this error with
tar. What should I do?
