    In order to upgrade to this:

    1. Use the 4.9.176.antix.1 kernel (RECOMMENDED)

    how and where do I get it?

    thanks,

    antiX Core 64 Bit Runit XFS JWM

    It should be installable from either (both) the antiX “stable” or the “testing” repository

    .

    .

    How?
    Well, here’s what I see in synaptic package manager (antiX17, using “stable” repo)

    .

    And what to do after this ?
    After having installed both, first the linux-image 4.9.182.antix.1 and then also the linux-headers 4.9.182.antix.1
    the system STILL uses the old kernel – Stable, amd64, antiX 17.2. (No new option is shown on the startup screen.)

    You reboot, of course, to start using the new kernel. Then, and only then, you can remove the old kernel and headers.
    And if you have a Nvidea graphics card, you’ll need to reinstall the driver for that.

    A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    unless the horse is a liveboot + persistence system.
    In that case, perform a live-remaster operation, then use the live-kernel-updater utility.

    But you should always check the teeth to make sure it’s a horse and not some old nag, yaknow?
