We apply the recently suggested linear updating algorithm of Kennedy and Kuti to four-dimensional SU(3) bosonic gauge theory with the Wilson action. The change in the action for each link update is estimated stochastically, and we find that the algorithm gives the mean plaquette correctly for reasonable parameter values. Our results indicate that this method should be efficient for Monte Carlo computations with complicated "improved" actions, and they also show the feasibility of using such "noisy" methods to include the dynamical effects of fermions.
