Mountain Giant:
What is difference between Linux Lite and generic kernels? Because version numbers are different than on official site.

Official long term 5.15.63
Linux Lite 5.15.0-47

MathildeBuxto:

Addendum: The 32bit kernel will cease to exist after April 1st 2021. This coincides with the EOL for Series 3.x, the last 32bit OS we produced. All Kernels from April 1st onwards, will be 64bit only. 32bit kernels will remain in our repository for now.

Jerry:
5.10 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

'If it ain't broke...' If you don't need this kernel for a specific reason, don't install it!

These kernels are built for:

- Series 5.x (emerald/focal 64bit only)
- Series 4.x (diamond/bionic 64bit only)
- Series 3.x (citrine/xenial)
- Series 2.x (beryl/trusty) - NB: No more kernels for this Series.

NOTE: If you use proprietary drivers, this kernel may break functionality with those drivers. If you have proprietary drivers installed and you still decide to go ahead with this kernel install, you should be competent in repairing your drivers. If you aren't, DO NOT install this kernel.IMPORTANT: Only install this kernel if you need it or if you are adept at getting out of trouble from a TTY.This will be the last Forum announcement of any Kernel release.
