    Default Kernel upgrade to 3.2.5

    Hi,

    I'm using BackTrack 5 R1.
    root@bt:~# cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.6.39.4 (root@builder64) (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) #1 SMP Wed Aug 17 21:42:30 EDT 2011

    I want to know if the Kernel is specifically compiled for BackTrack or it is a standard Kernel? What are the best steps to upgrade it to 3.2.5?

    thanx in advance

    Personally, I wouldn't do the kernel upgrade. BackTrack is a custom distro, and upgrading the kernel on your own may break some tools.
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I think you could do it. Never mind that all patches and so on, cause the one or two you need can be done manually within doing that.
    But scottm99 is right. Its like the new kernel could break some tools cause dependencies could be uninstalled/changed.

    Wait until 1st March, BT5R2's launch date. It will include kernel 3.2.4 (info @ http://twitter.com/backtracklinux)
