In here I am Installing the Kernel Via debs 

Step 1:Login as root user

After downloading install those packages

Download the Deb Packages using wget

For 32 bit systems

wget -c kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.11-saucy/linux-headers-3.11.0-031100_3.11.0-031100.201309021735_all.deb 

wget -c kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.11-saucy/linux-headers-3.11.0-031100-generic_3.11.0-031100.201309021735_i386.deb
