Unlike upgrading your entire operating system, you can keep the old kernel easily (by just not getting rid of it after you upgrade) and go back to it at any time.
(Holding shift at startup should boot into grub and let you pick from any kernel you have installed) I had some serious issues with the 3.5 kernel (sound problems, wifi crashes, graphics failures) so I upgraded to 3.8 and never looked back.
(The core of any Linux-based operating system.) URL : https:// License : GPLv2 Description : This package provides the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of any : Linux-based operating system.
The kernel handles the basic functions : of the OS: memory allocation, process allocation, device I/O, etc.
Kernel-ml also has the firmware, headers and libs files.

If more than a couple of weeks/months have past since you last rebuilt everything, you first install a snapshot and rebuild from there (if you're following the most current CVS branch).
Having an out of sync kernel, base system and/or 3rd party packages is a potential source of issues and more or less disqualifies you from getting any serious help from the official mailing lists. In fact, this is one of the reasons I use Open BSD.
It makes the system a consistent unit and it makes it easy for me to form a mental overview of it. Most Linuxes that I'm aware of don't have a "base system" in the same sense as the BSDs, but rather a collection of packages assembled by the distribution provider.
Further software is then added to this by a local administrator in such a way that the boundary between what was there from the start and what was added later is, at best, blurry.
You should then be able to upgrade all the way to 4.11.1 if you want.
