Liquorix kernel for stretch stable

Postby midish » 2017-07-20 06:25

I need help on how to install this kernel properly on stretch now that it's stable and since liquorix only provides its repositories for testing.
Thanks in advance :mrgreen:

Currently the kernel headers require gcc-6, so the kernel and headers will work fine on Stretch. I could add a Stretch version to my Jessie Liquorix kernel repo if they jump up to gcc-7 in the future.

Hi,

I am also very interested in using the Liquorix Kernel on Stretch. I ve used it with Debian and really like it.

Any advise how to get this installed? @Steve: Can you provide this? This would be fantastic?

Thanks

What would be even more fantastic is if you did just the tiniest little bit of research first, rather than implicitly demanding that someone retype an answer just for you, (@OP: This applies to you too.)

Hi,

sorry I did not want to do anything wrong here. I am quiet new and of course I did a Research before. I also found this discussion you are referring to and several other topics in other places. Actually for a few hours already.
I just want to ask here if there's already something to use. And of course if I find something in the meantime I will also post here to help others.

So what I already did on a fresh install:

Code: Select all
apt-get install gcc-6

wget https://liquorix.net/debian/pool/main/l/linux-liquorix/linux-headers-4.11.0-11.1-liquorix-amd64_4.11-18_amd64.deb
wget https://liquorix.net/debian/pool/main/l/linux-liquorix/linux-image-4.11.0-11.1-liquorix-amd64_4.11-18_amd64.deb

dpkg -i *4.11*deb


It worked and I can also see the new Kernel but I am not sure if this is the correct way to do.

Thanks S

Why not just compile the actual kernel?

You could learn something new :)

There is a good set of instructions on the Liquorix site. There is more info on their forum. There is no need for us to duplicate that.

Yeah, the Liquorix home page is the "first link" referred to in the thread I referenced. So much for the claim, "I found that discussion, along with several others." :roll:

Maybe the OP is asking about the installation without breaking Debian Stretch by adding third party repositories. Tho I've installed it myself in my current stretch installation and it is much more reccomended to custom-compile a low-latency kernel :mrgreen:

VentGrey, you are right to be skeptical of third party repositories. Liquorix is one of the few third party repositories I trust. However, it is standard practise for me when I use an extra repository, even contrib and non-free, to remove it after taking what I want. It is one thing to deliberately take a package or two. It is quite something else to leave the source open to keep on giving for weeks, months, years ahead, inviting any and all sorts of unhappy surprises.

Hi,

thanks a lot for all the information.

Well possible yes but I am quite new to Linux. maybe for the future :-)

Liquorix is one of the few third party repositories I trust

So do you mean it is possible to add their repository in Stretch? I thought this is not possible in Debian 8 and 9. Maybe I've misunderstand that.
For Debian 8 I used the MX-15 Repo from their side which worked quite well. (The last Kernel is this: Package: linux-headers-4.7.0-7.1-liquorix-amd64)

Thanks S

Your question was already answered in the second post in this thread--is there something you don't understand about it?

In short: currently it's Stretch compatible. That will change at some undetermined time in the future.

Currently I also maintain Jessie builds of the latest Liquorix: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... uorix-4.11
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.5.0, Liquorix kernel 4.12-10, mpv 0.27.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6

Hi,

thanks Steve - also for the answer in the Liquorix Forum.

It was a misunderstanding from my side. I thought it is not possible to use the official Repo for Stretch. But this is now clear. I installed as described gcc-6 then added the Repo, added the keyring and updated my system. I could install the Kernel and now test it.

Thanks a lot for your help and instructions

Just for fun I installed a Liquorix kernel on my Sid laptop yesterday - it worked pretty well after apt-secure stopped giving me grief and I got the keyring installed :mrgreen:

Still playing with it when I have time as I've got a couple of tiny issues but nothing I can't solve. If I do decide to keep it I'm also gonna keep a Debian kernel for bughunting. It *feels* a bit snappier but that could also be Shiny New Thing Syndrome.
