    Hi all,
    I admit i lost track of the changes ,and i was wondering if it would be easier to change the downloads kernels so that the users who download it dont have to do the kernel installation (which requires first to set the persistence and then do a remaster (if i got it right ,please correct me if i am not right about this).

    I managed to update the kernel on the antix 17-32bit stick to the 4.14.14 ,and i wonder if the same process applies to antix 16-64bit
    I run at present the 4.4.10-antix.1-amd64-smp kernel ,
    in my package installer i see (4.4.10 ) and also (4.10.1) and (4.6.2),also the debian 3.16
    the announcement says : antiX-16/16.1/16.2 users have these options.

    1. Use the 4.9.77.antix.1 kernel now in jessie repo
    2. Use the 4.4.109 kernel. This was built from Ubuntu 4.4.109 source
    3. Use a patched Debian kernel (3.16.0-5)
    4. Do nothing (not advised)

    So as you can tell i am confused , i dont see the same kernels as suggested except from the debian kernel.
    Any suggestions would be helpful.
    best regards

    Did you do an apt-get update/synaptic reload and then look for the kernels?

    These are available in jessie.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Same problem; anti-X 16. I tried apt-get update followed by apt-get upgrade. But no kernel update.

    Also tried apt-get clean all. No dice.

    Sorry not meaning to hijack the thread, but I am equally confused by the instructions.

    Simply doing apt-get upgrade will not install a new kernel.
    You have to do apt-get install the name of the kernel.
