How to install Linux Kernel backports

We maintain backports of newer kernels to keep old distributions secure. Here's how to use them.

Installing Linux Kernel backports

For Debian 8 jessie

Linux 3.16 of Debian 8 is no longer maintained. Instead you are advised to run the Linux 4.9 backport that we maintain. The backport is available in the regular jessie-lts repository and you can install it that way:

apt-get install linux-image-4.9-amd64

or for 32bit

apt-get install linux-image-4.9-686-pae
