MX-14.3 comes with the 3.14 kernel.
Do you maybe mean "How do I upgrade the kernel in MX 14.2 to 3.14?" {MX-14.2 is what's in your signature}
Anyway, this will install it

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install linux-{headers,image}-3.14-0.bpo.2-686-pae
edit: change the "686-pae" to "486" if you want the non pae kernel.

In the future, you can just search the Manual (using the standard Ctrl-F) for such common questions as these, where you will find this in one click:

To upgrade to 14.3 you have to follow the migration directions:

http://mepiscommunity.org/migration

As you will see, they include manually upgrading the kernel.
