The first, stable Linux kernel of the 4.9.x line – 4.9.0 landed in Sparky “unstable” repository.

I was really busy last week creating and uploading new iso images of Sparky 4.5.2. I also tried to build the Linux kernel 4.9.0, but it did not work as it should.

I rebuilt it today, so can be installed or upgraded if you already have installed older Sparky’s Linux kernel. The Sparky Linux kernel is available in Sparky “unstable” repository, so enabled it to upgrade or make fresh installation:

Follow the Wiki page: https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/linux_kernel to install the latest Sparky’s Linux kernel.

Then reboot your machine to take effects.

To quick remove older version of the Linux kernel, simply run APTus-> Remove-> Uninstall Old Kernel script.
