how to download linux 4.4.0-93.116 source package

Asked by Nadim Charara on 2017-08-24

Hi:

I need to get a specific Linux package version linux 4.4.0-93.116 source (xenial proposed) found at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/4.4.0-93.116, but do not know the steps needed to get this package. I have enabled pre-release updates(xenial-proposed) in Ubuntu software updates and tried different ways with apt-get source or install with no success. Could you provide me with the steps or a link to documentation describing how to get the source for that version?
Thanks for your help.

If you have "deb-src ..." entries in your sources.list file(s), you could try

sudo apt-get source --nocompile linux=4.4.0-93.116
