How to downgrade debian Kernel 4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 to 3.16.0-4-amd64


#1

Hello everyone!

I have recently upgraded my Debian’s kernel up to 4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 but actually some applications are not working well. So in this opportunity I’d like to know on how could I do to make a downgrade kernel from 4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 to 3.16.0-4-amd64 that I had before I upgraded.

I don’t want this: (v 4.6)

Linux zeus 4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.1-1~bpo8+1 (2016-06-14) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Distributor ID:	Debian
Description:	Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 (jessie)
Release:	8.5
Codename:	jessie

The kernel I want is this: (v. 3.16)

Linux zeus 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-2 (2016-06-14) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Distributor ID:	Debian
Description:	Debian GNU/Linux 8.5 (jessie)
Release:	8.5
Codename:	jessie

I’ll be waiting for your answers guys. :slight_smile:

I’ve google about this topic so much but I couldn’t find the answer.

Regards!!! :smile:

Restart your box and break the boot processes, there you will see the last three kernels simply shift to previous kernel by pressing up and down arrow’s and press ENTER for boot the system

If you don’t find any installed kernels at grub install the kernel-3.16.0-4-amd64 and repeat the same process.

Yes! That was the answer I was looking for although I’ve already fixed it.

The solution was too easy although we’re here to learn from each other sharing our experiences in order to get more knowledge.

Thank you so much!!! Regards!!!
