Change is a necessary part of life, and it is no different when it comes to the Linux Kernel. As improvements and security updates are made, new versions of the kernel will be released. As a Linux administrator, it is important to be able to upgrade your kernel or install kernels that will meet specific needs. In this lab, we are tasked with installing a kernel and generating a new initramfs image.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
