Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

Maybe you can add multiple kernel and we can select one of them. For example kernel for netbook.

Re: Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

If you're talking about LPIA CPUs like the Atom, full support for those has been in the mainline Debian kernels since before Squeeze went stable...


I'm a moderator here.  How are we doing?  Feedback is encouraged.

Re: Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

I have #!Waldorf or Statler (Debian Stable+backports) on 2 PCs, 3 laptops and my AAO Netbook . . . works great on all of them.

Before any Debian release can become 'stable' it much work on 12 different computer Architectures ... Atom processors is only one of them.

Re: Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

I'm consistently shocked how little love the super-stable Debian kernels get on these forums. Seems like people are always in a hurry to install liquorix or whatever.

Re: Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

The idea of a lightweight/minimalist distro coming with uneccessary kernels is strange. If you want other kernels, install them. It would be a better for kernels to be installed via a post-installation script, or, as corenominal had already thought, via the repository (there used to be the liquorix kernel available via the #! repository).

Re: Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

^ That was a disaster, IMHO, to provide an alternate kernel but then not support it with bug fixes & security patches. sad

Re: Multiple kernels and kernel selection on install

Well, that too. I don''t see the necessity of any of this either. The world is but an apt-get away.
