How to Install Linux Kernel 5.19 on Ubuntu / Linux Mint

Linux Kernel Logo

Linus Torvalds announced the Linux Kernel 5.19 which is available to download for general usage with new features, Major ARM updates, improvements, better hardware support, and other new updates.

As per Linus Torvalds

On a personal note, the most interesting part here is that I did the
release (and am writing this) on an arm64 laptop. It’s something I’ve
been waiting for for a long time, and it’s finally a reality, thanks
to the Asahi team. We’ve had arm64 hardware around running Linux for a
long time, but none of it has really been usable as a development
platform until now.

It’s the third time I’m using Apple hardware for Linux development – I
did it many years ago for powerpc development on a ppc970 machine.
And then a decade+ ago when the Macbook Air was the only real
thin-and-lite around. And now as an arm64 platform.

This tutorial will be helpful for beginners to install kernel 5.19 On Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and LinuxMint 20.3
