    I saw where anticapitalista just released a new kernel 4.4.195 LTS what is the difference between 4.4.195 and the 4.9.193 that he released in September. Just looking to better understand how things work and what is best for keeping this install up to date. Thanks.

    Please can Linux 4.4 kernel be included in antiX19 repositories

    probably only for old hardware which works with version 4.4, but not with 4.9.

    Thank you again, it is very useful (even for MX)

    If you look at kernel.org you will see the list of kernels that are currently updated. The latest current stable kernel is 5.3, 5.4 is in beta form being worked on. LTS kernels are long term support kernels, that is what 3.16 4.4 4.9 4.19 are. The editions in between get dropped and do not receive security updates and other fixes. As kernels progress some support for really old hardware is dropped.

    In other linux I have used 5.3 (now on its 5th edition 5.3 5.3.1 …etc) and it is smaller, lighter, and faster than previous 5s, on my machine. Well it is smaller in every machine, I don’t know what kind of fat they shaved off but it is good. Otherwise I like 4.19.

    If you search by # apt search linux image antix you get a list of antix produced kernels. You substitute image for headers in the search to locate the corresponding headers image. Make sure you don’t mix up amd64 (64 bit kernels) with 32 bit kernels (486).
    linux-image-4.19.73-antix.1-amd64-smp linux-headers-4.19.73-antix.1-amd64-smp are the current latest lts. In general you stick with the latest kernel that works on your hardware. There are cases where some software that is no longer maintained but you like to keep using that have a limit to what kernel can be used. So if the sw doesn’t work with anything above 4.4 you are stuck with it. If it works with 4.20 or earlier then you use 4.19, because 5.0 will not work.

    Use apt-get install for kernels so the packages stay in your /var/cache/apt/archives because apt install will delete the package after installation. Say at some point you want to reinstall or use the package for another installation you would have to download that huge package again.

    At least this is my take on kernels.

    5.3 kicks capitalist ass! 🙂

    When I built a 5.3 kernel a week or so ago and it was lousy on this Thinkpad.
    Slower to boot and double the usual RAM usage, so I went back to 5.2.15.

    The 5.2.15 kernel has worked well.

    The Liquorix 5.2 kernels up to 5.2.0.19 have also worked well on my Dell Inspiron 5558 laptop.
