On Debian (Jessie) 8 I added the backports source and installed a newer kernel via:
apt-get update apt-get install -t jessie-backports linux-image-amd64
I then ran
However on reboot I do not see an option in GRUB to select the new kernel and the usual option loads the existing kernel:
uname -r 3.16.0-4-amd64
Firstly can I just update the kernel like this without recompiling all the software? (I want a new kernel in the hope it supports my hardware)
Second, if so, how do I make it appear in GRUB?
