  • Linux Lite: 6.0 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-10850K CPU @ 3.60GHz

  • MEMORY: 32Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 1650

  • Kernel: 5.x

What about the speed of processing (compress/decompress)? :)

With Kernels growing year in year out, Gzip would fill our repository server at nearly double the rate. Zstd gives us much more time before needing to scale up on storage space.

Our Linux Lite Kernels are now using the latest compression methods in Kernel 6+

Previous compression (gzip) built the image package out to 198mb, the new (zstd) compression brings it in at 114mb.

That's good news! :)

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

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.

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.

See here for an overview of what's new - https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux-510-features&num=1

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-5.10.0 linux-image-linuxlite-5.10.0 -y
If you prefer the point-and-click option, go to Menu, System, Lite Tweaks and select Kernel Installer.



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. From now on each major Kernel we release will be announced on the usual Social Media platforms.

Thanks for the info! :)
Reading about the new features, reveals that actually this might be useful only for very new hardware. For old hardware, there are only minor improvements so...
'If it ain't broke...' :)

For enthusiasts:
1. Backup the Root [/] partition (/dev/sda1 usually, except for GPT), then /home, if this is the case;
2. Remove all kind of proprietary drivers, if any;
3. Install the new kernel;
4. Reinstall the proprietary drivers, if this is the case.

CAUTION: If you have a GPT partitioning, take care at the backup phase. Backup the /dev/sda1 too, just in case. It's the boot/efi partition.

I used this steps to test lots of kernels when using Linux Mint. I even installed some RCs. Nothing broke, but nither "boosts".
For backups, I use CloneZilla so it takes some 20 minutes to perform a full restore, for an average of 18 GB uncompressed data.

Hope this helps. :)

Personally, I found nothing useful for my machine in the list of new features. The only idea would be to test the NVidia GK107 with this kernel, but since the Intel chipset gives me an average 53 FPS at rendering, I guess I fall into the above category: 'If it ain't broke...'


Best regards! :)
