Is possible to select the version of Kernel I need in apt-get? Actually, I need to update it but I had lot of configurations problems with 3.2.

Or the only way is compiling the kernel?

Thank you

If you check apt-cache search linux-image you can install one of those if the version matches what you need. Otherwise check backports, if they don't provide it either you'll need to compile.
