Linux kernel RC

 

Due to a few requests of adding the latest RC Linux kernel to the repos, I decided to do so.

The first version of Linux kernel of the RC line – 4.18-rc1 just landed in Sparky “unstable” repository. It is available for amd64 CPUs only.

Installation:

1. The Sparky’s Linux kernel RC is available in Sparky “unstable” repository, so enable it:
https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/repository

2. There is not a sparky’s kernel meta package so install the right package:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install linux-image-VERSION-sparky-amd64

Headers are there, if you’d like too:
sudo apt install linux-headers-VERSION-sparky-amd64
where the “VERSION” is (depends of the kernel version) now:
4.18.0-rc1
Then reboot your machine to take effects.

Make sure it is NOT stable version.
Install it if you would like to test the latest build, or your machine needs the latest drivers, or you like walking on the edge 🙂

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

Debian kernel installer

There is new, small tool available for Sparkers: Debian’s Linux kernel installer.

A few guys of our community members asked about that, so couldn’t not adding that.

What for?
As Sparky is shipped with Debian kernel as default, I couldn’t find a reason to do that, but…
Someones of you install and test other kernels, such as Liquorix or Sparky, and then uninstall the Debian’s one. After finding problems with some specific devices or so, want to easy install the Debian’s one back.
End of story…

The old 686-pae Debian kernel installer has been removed as well (it is inside the new tool).

The tool is available via ‘sparky-aptus’ >= 0.3.21 package.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install sparky-aptus
