Kernel 5.0 on BL

Hey all, has anyone tried to set up kernel 5.0 on Stretch and is it possible to do?

Re: Kernel 5.0 on BL

It's actually rather simple nowadays to make a custom kernel. The kernel itself has support for building Debian packages. The steps are outlined here: https://debian-handbook.info/browse/sta … ation.html. It'll yield a kernel package you can install/remove as usual.

Of course, as you are your own tester then, YMMV.

Sure, Liquorix kernel backports: https://build.opensuse.org/project/show … r:codelite

If you're running out of tree drivers like Nvidia or broadcom-sta, you'll need the versions from stretch-backports, and I'm not really sure what's else in backports now...you can look at my announcement on the Stretch-based MX here: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php … &start=110

Stretch-backports has since added the 410.104 Nvidia driver.

I'm not the only one with divided BL/MX loyalties?!
