In this week’s feature highlight, we look at How to Install Linux kernel 6.0 on Ubuntu 22.10

Kernel is central component of an operating system that manages operations of computer and hardware. It basically manages operations of memory and CPU time. It is core component of an operating system. Kernel acts as a bridge between applications and data processing performed at hardware level using inter-process communication and system calls.

Step 1 – Update your system

First, Update the system packages to the latest versions using the below apt commands,

 apt update
 apt upgrade

Install some of the packages required for the Kernel upgrade,

 apt install gcc make perl wget

Step 2 – Installing Linux Kernel 6.0

By default on Ubuntu 22.10, The kernel version it ships with is version 5.19

Linux Kernel 6.0 is not available on Ubuntu 22.10 base repository. So we will manually download the required Linux Kernel packages from the official site and install.

You can check their official site for a list of available kernel versions that can be installed,

At the time of writing this article, version 6.0.9 was the only latest kernel we could install with.

Some points to note, for selecting a different version of kernel.
Open the site and scroll to the bottom of the page.
Find a version whose builds are successful, under that, navigate to “amd64” folder.
You will find the required four files to download on the ubuntu system, Linux Headers, Linux Image and Linux Modules.
A successful build looks like below:

Test amd64/build succeeded (rc=0, on=amd64, time=0:12:37, log=amd64/log)

For upgrading to the latest kernel on Ubuntu, follow the given instructions:

wget https//




Now, install the downloaded files using the dpkg command as shown below,

Ensure that there are no other .deb files apart from the ones that were downloaded.
If there are any other .deb files, recommended to remove them before proceeding.

dpkg -i *.deb

After installing the Linux Kernel 6.0, reboot the system to run the new Kernel


Step 3 – Verify the Kernel version

To verify the kernel installed and running after the reboot, use the uname command as shown below,

uname -r


root@vps:~# uname -r

This concludes the topic of installing the latest version of Kernel on a Ubuntu System.

bookmark_borderInstalling Docker On Ubuntu 22.10


In this week’s feature highlight, we look at How to Install Docker On Ubuntu 22.10

What is docker?

Docker is basically a container engine that uses the Linux Kernel in order to create containers on top of an operating system. Which is used to create, deploy and run the applications.

Install Docker

Install the docker using the apt package manager.

apt install docker-compose

Start and enable the docker

systemctl enable --now docker

Check Docker service

systemctl status docker


root@crown:~# systemctl status docker
● docker.service - Docker Application Container Engine
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/docker.service; enabled; preset: enabl>
     Active: active (running) since Mon 2022-10-17 13:59:05 UTC; 52s ago
TriggeredBy: ● docker.socket
   Main PID: 5778 (dockerd)
      Tasks: 8
     Memory: 22.6M
        CPU: 358ms
     CGroup: /system.slice/docker.service

Create a group called docker,

groupadd docker

To add a user to the docker user group

usermod -aG docker $USER

If you want to add a different user, replace $USER with an existing username.

Check the docker version,

docker --version


root@crown:~# docker --version
Docker version 20.10.16, build 20.10.16-0ubuntu1

Test docker using the hello-world container.

docker run hello-world


root@crown:~# docker run hello-world

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
 1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
 2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
 3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
 4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
 $ docker run -it ubuntu bash

Share images, automate workflows, and more with a free Docker ID:
