I separated this into 2-parts. First part is for 32-bit users, second part for 64-bit users.



WARNING:   I'm not responsible if you install this and break your system. Kernel 3.3.0 is a non-stable kernel, and is highly experimental. For a stable release kernel use 3.2.12. You should remove any additional proprietary drivers before installing the kernel to be on the safe side.

This tutorial is for Debian-based distros only such as Ubuntu, Peppermint, Mint, etc, although it should be easily translated for Redhat distros.

For those updating to 3.3.0 and use NVIDIA drivers, you WILL have to update them to 295.33
