Thread: How do I update kernel 3.3.7 to 4.7.9?

  1. #1

    How do I update kernel 3.3.7 to 4.7.9?

    My system is Live Knoppix 7.0.2 and kernel 3.3.7 installed to hard disc.

    Can I happily update kernel 3.3.7 to kernel 4.7.9, and if I do, will the rest of
    my system carry on the same as before?

    The reason I want to update the kernel is because I've bought a new Seagate 2Tb
    usb hdd, and it won't work on my present system (it works fine in Windows 7).
    My testing, failed fixes, and Internet trawling leads me to the conclusion that the kernel
    probably contains a bug
    that is preventing the drive from working.

    (The following link shows what the problem is:

    http://knoppix.net/forum/threads/323...340#post135340 )

    The reason I want to update specifically to kernel 4.7.9 is because the Seagate
    drive works OK with Live Knoppix 7.7 on usb memory stick, which has kernel
    4.7.9.

    My humble questions:

    Please could you tell me what steps I carry out in order to update to kernel 4.7.9.
    I'm out of my depth here, so could you spell out each step please.

    Where do I get kernel 4.7.9 from?

    Do I need to backup first?

    Also, how do I revert to kernel 3.3.7 if I need to?

    You cannot.

    Thanks philo (#2). Could you tell me why I can't update to kernel 4.7.9?

    Also, is there a kernel version that I can update to, which doesn't have the
    bug which prevents the operation of my usb drive?

    I've thought of another possibility, but I don't really know what I'm talking
    about. Is it possible to do either of the following, in order to get the Seagate
    drive to work:

    a) Patch my present kernel (3.3.7).

    b) Load a module that DOES correctly operate usb hard disc drives. I understand
    that the "uas" module contains bugs that prevent correct operation of such
    drives.
