Just swapped this kernel, into Bionicpup64 7.9.6. All running smoothly. Nice. Thanks.


Edit: Just thought I'd give it a try in lxpupsc64 18.06 +10. No problems identified. I ran dmesg, which gave basically same details as bionicpup64.

@TerryH - I don't advise use in LxpupSc. It - like Slacko, uses /usr/lib64 whereas this 4.14.79 u kernel uses /usr/lib for main libs - as Ubuntu derivs do. Could cause unforeseen issues. I made 4.14.69 s earlier for Slacko/LxpupSc.

New link for 4.14.79 u640oz kernel: https://archive.org/download/Puppy_Linux_Huge-Kernels/huge-4.14.79-u64oz.tar.bz2

Thank you, ozsouth.
I'm using BionicPup64 7.9.6

Would you please explain how I can make the change? What about the firmware? I don't understand that at all.

What will be different in how the puppy works, after the changes?

Thanks again,
Sheldon

4.14 is the latest long-term kernel series. Unlike the stock kernel, /usr/lib is used as per ubuntu derivative convention. There was also a serious network bug fix in 4.14.79. Not sure what other changes you may see. Firmware - get bionicpup64's firmware (in an fdrv below) & rename to fdrv_bionicpup64_7.9.6.sfs.
This fdrv can be used for most pups. Available (for 15 days) here:
http://www.filepup.net/files/7a582e1e1541822891.html

When I download a huge kernel file, I place it in an empty folder, cd /(folder) , tar -jxvf huge-(whatever) , rename vmlinuz(whatever) to vmlinuz and rename kernel-modules(whatever) to (in your case) zdrv_bionicpup64_7.9.6.sfs . Then replace current vmlinuz & zdrv (add fdrv if needed) & reboot.

Many thanks, ozsouth! I followed your instructions. Rebooted with pfix=ram

For those using ubuntu derivatives & having problems with newer kernels, here's a 6 month old one (4.14.39 issued 9 May 2018). Tested OK in xenialpup64 7.5, but use at own risk. https://archive.org/download/Puppy_Linux_Huge-Kernels/huge-4.14.39-u64oz.tar.bz2
