How to upgrade the Linux kernel to version 3.4.7

Translation (via Google translate):

Hello, I’m wanting to upgrade the kernel of my Linux version. I’m currently using 3.2.0-27-generic-pae and want to switch to the latest 3.4.7 from the official site.

More information on my computer:

Operating System: Ubuntu

Version: 12.04 (Precise) 32-bit

GNOME: 3.4.1

Memory: 1.8 GiB

Processor: Intel ® Pentium (R) Dual CPU E2220@2.40GHz x 2

Answer

Here’s a good start point: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile/

You may use many other sources on Linux kernel 3.2 (like http://mitchtech.net/compile-linux-kernel-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts-detailed/) as it’s almost the same for Linux kernel 3.4.

Then, if you face any problem, you can search for a solution or come back here and ask about it.
