  • Linux Lite: 3.4 64bit
4.10 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-4.10.0 linux-image-linuxlite-4.10.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.
IMPORTANT: Only install this kernel if you need it or if you are adept at getting out of trouble from a TTY.


I have a question:
Generally the kernel consist of 3 packages: linux-headers, linux-image, linux-image-extra.
I notice that in the custom kernels the package "extra" is not include (exist only: linux-headers-linuxlite and  linux-image-linuxlite)
Why? The linux-image-extra is not important?

I'm certainly open to that, given that it contains additional drivers. We'll take a look at the next Kernel release. Cheers.

So I won't be attempting this. Will it be available by Lite Update when it won't be a problem? Or is it not needed?  :-\

So with a fresh Systemback restore point I installed 4.10 on the 32-bit Mini... SO much better than 4.9 attempt, none of the issues quoted below...
Don't know if I notice anything right off over 4.4 kernel on the "old girl" - but 4.10 installed smoothly   :D


So for 32-bit 4.9...
It did boot and got to desktop....

Issues noticed right off:
  • No mouse control - touchpad nor usb
  • Display reverted to 800x600 (typically 1024x600)
  • Missing log in sound
  • Seemed to take longer to boot
Was able to bounce back to 4.4

4.11 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

This is the first Linux Lite Kernel that includes our Firmware package 'linux-firmware-image-linuxlite' (a.k.a linux-image-extra). Thank you to @light_user for this suggestion.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-4.11.0 linux-image-linuxlite-4.11.0 linux-firmware-image-linuxlite-4.11.0 -y
NOTE: If you have the nVidia proprietary graphics drivers installed, this kernel may break functionality with nVidia. If you have the nVidia proprietary graphics drivers installed and you still decide to go ahead with this kernel install, you should be competent in repairing your graphics drivers. If you aren't, DO NOT install this kernel.

Ignore any errors in the terminal.

IMPORTANT: Only install this kernel if you need it or if you are adept at getting out of trouble from a TTY.

Thank you for implying my suggestion so fast !!!
I've tried the new kernel (installed the three packages that you mentioned) but I feel regression:
My laptop model is: HP-6450b, and it uses internal Broadcom wireless driver:  BCM4313, but the new kernel doesn't
work well with this chipset and doesn't show my wireless network.
I return to kernel 4.8 and everythings works great :)

@light_user you get that. Newer kernels drop drivers etc. This stops the kernel ballooning over time.

This Broadcom chipset is very popular. I thought that the extra package ("linux-firmware-image-linuxlite-4.11.0 ") will add support to common drivers but although it writes the specific driver it doesn't work well.

I understand now that is an advantage to installing new kernels. I think they also fix bugs in kernels, like the mad cow. As I posted before "Will it be available by Lite Update when it won't be a problem?"

@Coastie
I hope this may help enlighten...

Will a "new" kernel version be available via Updates -- I would say for now most likely not -- although there are tools that can install kernels as well as remove  (Lite Tweaks - kernel removal)..
Again this is something that one would need to understand what their getting into, how it may affect their machine and how to get out of; not necessarily "safe"...

As for "fixes" those typically are patched via Updates incrementally an example:Kernel 4.4.0 -> 4.4.28 -> 4.4.53 etc.... (looking at lite tweaks one can see the various installed kernels)
