• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Kernels: Installing and Removing.

Before you begin, I advise you to make a back up of your system. Anytime you want to play with the kernel, boot partition or BIOS, ALWAYS make a back up.

There's many ways to achieve the goal of installing a different kernel in Linux, but by far the easiest I've seen is, the Ubuntu mainline tool.

From instruction found on Launchpad - To get started add the ppa to your sources and update apt.

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:cappelikan/ppa
sudo apt update

Then install the App.

sudo apt install -y mainline

If you now go to "All Software" by pressing super + a, you will see the "Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Installer". Open the program and let it "refresh". It may take a while, but when it's done, you'll be able to install which ever available kernel you like.
