LinuxMint LMDE2 64bit update kernel 4.8.8

Here is a very easy way to update kernel for LinuxMint 64 bit. I found the instruction here: https://mintguide.org/system/639-install-linux-kernel-4-7-stable-on-linux-mint.html
Basically what I did was following:

      1. Download linux-image and linux-headers:
$ mkdir temp
$ cd temp
$ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.8/linux-headers-4.8.8-040808_4.8.8-040808.201611150231_all.deb
$ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.8/linux-headers-4.8.8-040808-generic_4.8.8-040808.201611150231_amd64.deb
$ wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.8.8/linux-image-4.8.8-040808-generic_4.8.8-040808.201611150231_amd64.deb
      2. Install all .deb files:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
      3. Update GRUB:
$ sudo update-grub
      4. Reboot:
$ sudo reboot
      5. Check the kernel version:
$ uname -r
    That’s it!
