How to Install Older Kernel in Ubuntu

Install intrepid Kernel in Jaunty

After upgrade to 9.04 in my DELL VOSTRO 1200, the fan can not wake up from suspend. My Vostro works better with oder kernel 2.6.27-9, thus I want to install the older kernel. Here is howto:

1. Download the working kernel files:

wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/19976056/linux-image-2.6.27-9-generic_2.6.27-9.19_i386.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/19976058/linux-headers-2.6.27-9-generic_2.6.27-9.19_i386.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/19976059/linux-headers-2.6.27-9_2.6.27-9.19_all.deb

Next, install the three downloaded DEB files with dpkg:
    sudo dpkg -i linux-*

3. Reboot your computer.

4. Put your current kernel on hold (otherwise it would be upgraded once again during your next "aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade" routine):

     sudo aptitude hold linux-image-2.6.27-9-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-9-generic linux-headers-2.6.27-9
