How to install newer kernel on LMDE6?

Post by RamBurner »

I need to change to 6.2 kernel for the AX101 wireless and bluetooth, but there is no View-kernels in the update manager.
Backports are already installed as a source.

Hi RamBurner

Possibly you can consider ( XanMod Kernel ) link:

https://xanmod.org/
---
More information in the site ( LinuxCapable ) in the search field enter ( XanMod Kernel ).
---
⚠️
The ( XanMod Kernel ) is updated every 2 weeks.

⚠️
The Update Manager, detects the new version of it and proposes the update.

I am using it in my new Dell Pc ( Optiplex 7010 ) with Linux Mint LMDE 6, see screenshot:

Excellent suggestion/solution, Jolly Roger. I've dug and dug trying to find a way to install liquorix, and I'm sure it's my lack of skilz but I haven't been able to do it. PPA's and all that. I DO remember getting xanmod installed a long time back on another system though.
Currently running Linux Mint on an Acer E15-575G-57D4, and LMDE6 on a Lenovo T430. Planning on optimizing Mint to boot faster on my Dell Latitude 3189, Acer E11, and Acer C710 Chromebook.

Think twice before installing an unofficial kernel.
You don't install a third-party kernel because someone told you to.
You got to have special reasons.
IMHO there is no reason to install a third-party kernel when you can have a working Debian-made kernel on a debian-based system.

Liquorix and xanmod and other "zen"-type kernel performance advantages are debatable.
Debian "stable" is about stability and predictability.
Debian kernels are supported with bug and security fixes by Debian team while anything else is NOT.
So if you want a newer kernel just because you have relatively recent hardware, install latest debian kernel from backports.

liquorix kernel doesn't get much easier. I have been running them for many years.

I'm sticking with the official Debian kernels, right now I'm running 6.5.0-0.deb12.4-amd64 and it runs fantastic on LMDE 6.

I use liquorix. It’s a great kernel. But the stability of the default kernel that debian provides, it’s legendary!

Okay this is going to sound crazy, and I don't encourage anyone else to do this because it's not supported at all. But, what I did was switch my Debian repositories over to the testing branch. Currently it's on kernel 6.6.13 where the backports are on version 6.5.0. I would stick to the backports if you want to be safe, but if you like living on the edge like me you can easily edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list with your favourite editor and change 'bookworm' to 'testing' for all the Debian apt sources, then comment out the bookworm-backports & bookworm-updates sources. Then do a sudo apt update, sudo apt upgrade, sudo apt full-upgrade, then finish with sudo apt autoremove. Select yes to restarting services, then I went with all the default options on prompts and it went well. You can find more information at: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianTesting

Again, this is not supported at all, so "BEWARE! DRAGONS LURK HERE" It will probably eventually break something on your system, but so far it's been working just fine on my system for awhile now. Not only do I get access to a much newer kernel, but software as well. For example Libre Office recommends against using the version in bookworm and to upgrade asap. Testing takes you up to that recommended version. Another thing I like is the backports only update once in a blue moon, where the testing branch updates much more often, bringing along security fixes in a more timely manor.
