    OK, I see the new kernels in Synaptic and also in Cli-aptiX.
    In Cli-aptiX, I don’t know how to install the new kernel.
    In Synaptic, should I choose several packages?
    It’s really easier with “Package-Installer”.

    You need to state the number of the program you want to install.
    > Search for antiX kernels > View 10 leading results > (number of the specific kernel you want to install, in my image 7 is for linux-image-4.9.261), Enter
    Then,
    > Install package linux-image-(whatever you chose)
    yes to install dependencies, wait and done.

    It is true that synaptic is much easier to understand, but cli-aptiX is much faster for finding and installing antiX kernels (and automatically installing the kernel headers).

    An update to packageinstaller-pkglist will come soon, I think, that may also include some of the translations for program descriptions.

    @linuxdaddy.

    updating my synaptic still does not see the 4.9.261 kernel. The latest one is 4.9.240. I am interested in the 4.9 kernel

    These are list of repositories on my system:
    $ sudo grep -Erh ^deb /etc/apt/sources.list*
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ buster-updates main contrib non-free
    deb [arch=amd64,arm64,armhf] https://packages.microsoft.com/debian/10/prod buster main
    deb http://mirrors.rit.edu/mxlinux/mx-packages/antix/buster buster main nonfree
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free
    deb http://security.debian.org/ buster/updates main contrib non-free

    Should I add other repositories?

    @Xecure,

    cli-aptiX only sees 4.9.240 kernel even after sudo apt update. I don’t see the 4.9.261 kernel

    You are 100% right, calciumsodium. It seems this rit.edu mirror hasn’t been updated yet.

    Try the repo manager (Control Centre > Maintenance > Repo manager) to select a different mirror close to you for the antiX repos and check again.

    Hi @Xecure,

    Success. I was able to use the repo manager (Control Centre > Maintenance > Repo manager) to select a different mirror for my antiX repo. I then used cli-aptiX to update my kernel to 4.9.261. This is the first time I am using cli-aptX to update kernel. I have been using packageinstaller.

    Thank you @Xecure and @linuxdaddy for your help.

    Just a note, the latest packageinstaller-pkglist (0.3.27) still does not have these latest kernels, at least from my end.

    5.10.22 (antiX-19, bullseye, testing and sid 64bit only)
    4.19.180 (antiX-19, bullseye, testing and sid)
    4.9.261 (antiX-19, bullseye, testing and sid)
    4.4.261 (antiX-19, bullseye, testing and sid)

    Install packageinstaller-pkglist-libre and packageinstaller-pkglist-nonfree

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Thanks @anticapitalista
    That solves the problem also. I installed packageinstaller-pkglist-libre and packageinstaller-pkglist-nonfree and it removed the old packageinstaller-pkglist because of lack of dependencies. I see the new kernels in packageinstaller now. I did not know about the libre and nonfree versions. Thanks

    Install packageinstaller-pkglist-libre and packageinstaller-pkglist-nonfree

    Yes, this updates the packagelist with the newest kernel version.

    Will packageinstaller change the dependencies in the future from
    Depends: [...], packageinstaller-pkglist | packageinstaller-pkglist-libre
    to

    Depends: [...], packageinstaller-pkglist-libre
    Recommends: packageinstaller-pkglist-nonfree

    Or will packageinstaller-pkglist continue to be a dependency, acting as a meta-package for -libre + -non-free, so we keep the packageinstaller dependencies as is?

    @Xecure – not sure which is the best way to do it yet.

    Hi all. I managed to update to the latest kernel 5.10.22 via package installer. During the installation i received a warning and an error (could not find initial ram disk and

    some initrd error) but after reboot everything seems to work perfectly fine and after uname -r it shows the new kernel. How can i check if the kernel is installed correctly

    other way than visually? Regards and congrats once again to antix team. Impressive work!

    P.S: as a side note, #antix is way out better than #ubuntu for the guys who still don’t know this, tried several ubuntu based distros, mint, lite so i know from experience
