 ???   When you check the changelog of the lastest sparky 4.17.11 kernel only this appears: 


Code: [Select]
linux-4.17.11-sparky-amd64 (4.17.11-1) Nibiru; urgency=low

  * Custom built Linux kernel.

So what are the main differences between debian kernel and sparky kernel?

Thanks!!

Yep, that's correct.

It is the latest vanilla Linux kernel with no Debian's patches.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

On my crappy laptop, your last kernel (4.17.11) boots three seconds faster, than the debian kernel stock (4.17.0-1).
Uses a little less RAM and looks a bit faster.


Thanks for your good work!! ;)





Cheers!!  :)
