Kernel Repositories LMDE

Postby driekus on Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:56 pm

I am planning to move to LMDE from Linux Mint 12. The rolling distribution is much more appealing to me.
My big concern is that the testing stream for Debian is likely to be frozen soon and kernel updates may not occur. In Linux Mint 12 I updated to the 3.3 kernel in order to solve the power issue in earlier kernels. Ubuntu has excellent kernel repositories and this was relatively easy to do.
What I cant find is a repository with the 3.3 kernel for Debian.
Can anyone help with this niggling issue?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well it is a week later, I took the plunge and switched from LM12 to LMDE using cinnamon.
Kernel Update works perfectly, although I find the power consumption on the 3.2.0-2 kernel pretty good.
