Subject description: I cant update kernel
 

Hello everybody:

First of all , excuse me if this question is answered, but I can find it.

I want to update my puppy kernel ( kernel 3.14.20 i686) and I started quickpet tahr, selected changing kernels and it takes me to an page but it doesn't exists.

Where can I find the last kernel for my puppy and how can I install it.


THANKS A LOT.

That's unfortunate! Not sure why the link isn't working.

Perhaps one of the kernals you are looking for can be found here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-tahr/kernels/

Also a newer version of tahrpup may be using a newer kernal.

Why do you want to change the kernel?

Unless something is wrong. There is no need to just do it. You could actually loose function of some hardware.
Depends on the hardware and age of it.
Newer kernels do drop support for hardware that is considered too old to still support.

NOTE:
Here is most of the Puppy kernels you could use.
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/huge_kernels
Kernels button in change_kernels should also take you to this repository of kernels.

See if the change kernels program is in this Tahrpup.
Type in a console:
Code:
change_kernels


The help tells you how to use it.

Note:
The files you plug into change_kernels input slots are in the kernel .tar.bz2 package.
Download, unpack it, to see the files.

This image is showing info for Xenialpup, because that is what it is being run in.
It should change to the Puppy you are running it in.

Hi pp4mnklinux,

I read bigpup's post as advice to proceed with caution. That is, make certain you can recover it something goes wrong. However, while newer kernels may drop support for older hardware, they also AFAIK attempt to close undesirable loopholes discovered in older kernels.

Ally has archived many recent kernel packages at archive.org: http://archive.org/download/Puppy_Linux_Huge-Kernels

I'm not in Tahrpup just now. But my sometimes flaky memory suggests that at some point I substituted one of the Xenialpup kernels for Tahrpup's original. I'm certain I did that in Tahrpup64.

Yes, mikeslr is making some good points to consider.

Nothing is ever simple Rolling Eyes Laughing

I have one computer that the newest kernels do not support. It is too old.
I have a very new computer that the older kernels do not support. That one kind of makes some sense.
Hard to have stuff in a old kernel for hardware that was not around when the kernel was developed.

change_kernels program is suppose to make a rollback copy of the old kernel.

Subject description: THANKY
 

Hello everybody:

After having read your answers I consider I dont need to change kernel.

I thought It could improve my computer reaction time, but if it can only give me problems I must forget it.

THANKS A LOT for your help


Have a nice day /year

What specific reaction time are you wondering about?

Thanks bigpup for the great post about how to use change_kernels, and where to find some (and to mikeslr too). I will probably link to your post any time someone wants to change the kernel in the future. Smile
