So, would the 2.6.33 kernel be around any time soon on LMDE? I am happy to wait.
You can easily install 2.6.35 from experimental or from the Liquorix repository.
For the Debian kernel from experimental, just add a line to your /etc/apt/sources list exactly like the one you have for "testing" but with "experimental" in its place.
Then open Synaptic, reload the package information and install the 2.6.35 kernel. There's no problem since your current kernel won't be removed. Also you can leave the experimental repo enabled since packages from there can only be installed if you explicitly request.
If you prefer to install a Liquorix kernel, which is tweaked for desktop use rather than for server use, add to /etc/apt/sources.list
Code: Select all
deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main
Then open Synaptic, reload the package information and install liquorix-keyring and the 2.6.35 kernel.
I'm a newbie to LMDE and Mint in general. Could you run exactly through the process of doing this via the Liquorix kernel way? I've made an image of LMDE via Clonezilla so I can easily restore the original install if something goes awry.
1/ What is the best way to add to my sources list in LMDE? How do I open this file at terminal in LMDE?
2/ So, then I open Synaptic and reload?
3/ Then install liquorix-keyring at terminal via that link you gave?
4/ Will the newer kernel just be in Synaptic now for me to download?
5/ Will I see the options to choose between the original kernel and the new one on boot?
