New Kernel not on the dropdown list.

Hey Everybody,

I just upgraded (smoothly) from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 and was about to upgrade my kernel to the one downloaded during the process. Currently I have the Ubuntu 12.04.3 Server i386 vmlinuz-3.8.0-29-generic kernel running and was hoping to upgrade to 3.13.0-49-generic (the one I have downloaded). It, however, is not showing up on the Settings -> Kernel dropdown list in the DO control panel. Is this one just too new, or am I missing something?


  • Looks like when the x64 version of the kernel was released, we inadvertently did not release the corresponding x32 version. I've gone ahead and made it public, and you should now be able to select it from the menu:

    Thanks for pointing that out!

  • Appreciate the rapid response!

If you are not seeing the kernel you require in the drop-down list please open a ticket with our support team. If the kernel is not yet available they can import it and make it available to your droplet.
