(dummy transitional package) linux-image-extra-virtual-lts-wily - Transitional package. To search for available kernels in RHEL-based distros, type: . To override this and select a different kernel, you'll have to modify the kernel that the boot loader will load by default.
The exact procedure necessary depends heavily on the type of boot loader installed on your Droplet.
Select one of the resulting kernels and click the Change button: Next, log into your Droplet as root or a When the Droplet is powered down, return to the control panel.
Click on the Power menu item on the Droplet's page: On the next page, click the Power On button: Your Droplet should now boot, using the new Grub Loader kernel.
Grub includes commands to set a new default kernel from the command line.
You can use either the index number or the entry title to specify a boot option.
This process involved updating the Droplet's kernel on the server and then selecting the matching kernel from the Digital Ocean control panel.
This was a quick and easy process, but required users to use the control panel for the actual kernel swap.
If your page has a message about internal kernel management like this, your Droplet is set to use internal kernels natively: If instead, you see a drop down menu allowing you to change your kernel, your Droplet is using legacy external kernel management: If your Droplet uses external kernel management, switch to the Grub Loader by searching for "grub" in the search box.Users can manage their kernels using the server's regular package updating procedures.For Droplets that use the in-control panel legacy system, a special kernel called Digital Ocean Grub Loader is now available and recommended.To update all of the packages on your Ubuntu or Debian Droplet, including the kernel, type: linux-image-4.4.0-21-generic - Linux kernel image for version 4.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP linux-image-4.4.0-21-lowlatency - Linux kernel image for version 4.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP linux-image-extra-4.4.0-21-generic - Linux kernel extra modules for version 4.4.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP linux-image-extra-virtual - Transitional package. Find the package name for the kernel you wish to install. It is also usually a good idea to install the associated headers file.linux-image-extra-virtual-lts-utopic - Transitional package. (dummy transitional package) linux-image-extra-virtual-lts-vivid - Transitional package. You can do this by using the same package name, substituting only the Now that the kernel is installed, skip ahead to the section on finding which boot loader is being used to learn how to boot into the kernel.
