INSTALLING THE LAST KERNEL AVAILABLE

KERNEL

WARNING

Then we will stop operations that can not run the operating system, be advised that it will perform the procedure if you know what you are doing. It is also always advisable Make a complete backup of your system before proceeding. For this reason Deepin in Spanish is not liable to any damage that can make your system.

Welcome, you are here for sure because you want to know more about how to keep deepin with the latestkernel available, first a little information: kernel is the heart of the operating system without it we could not do any work, as it ensures that the Software and Hardware our PC function properly and can interact with each other.

The main functions are:

+Manage RAM, so they can run all programs and processes running. Memory must be used efficiently, dividing it between different services and applications so that everything runs smoothly, since a current operating system is 'multitasking', so multiple applications and services running all the time at the same time .
+Manage time of the processor, which is used by running processes. We currently have multiple processor cores and threads, so the kernel You must divide the tasks that makes your computer among all CPU cores for these tasks are performed correctly without overlapping each other.
+Manage access and use of the different hardware connected to the computer. As he hardware internal and motherboard, processor, memory and storage units, even those that are considered peripherals such as mouse, keyboard, monitor, USB keys, cameras, telephones, etc.



For the latest kernel on your Deepin we must perform the following steps:

Add the repository LvTommy which is stored in the kernel compatible with Deepin, to be more specific install the kernel provided by xanmod but this repository will help us do everything automatically.

First we download the .deb file which we will have to run to add the necessary repository to our system. Then you leave the download repository that will make it possible to follow the steps in this tutorial, it is provided by LvTommy.

LAST KERNEL

Download "LAST KERNEL" lvtommy-kernel-repository_1.0.0.deb – Descargado 1155 veces – 2 KB

Once downloaded the file to your computer proceed to make the appropriate installation package for the repository in our system.

We will install any .deb package in the system.

Then we have to use the terminal to run the command sudo apt update to refresh the list of repositories in the system and it appears that we just added.

Using this command the list of available applications to install cool.

For installation we have 2 options to install the latest kernel and automatically install new versions or installing a specific version:

MANUAL

We'll have to run the command: sudo apt search xanmod and screen were we deployed the options available to install, once located the package to install open a terminal and type:

sudo apt install linux-image-xxx-xanmodx && sudo apt install linux-headers-xxx-xanmodx
eg: Sudo apt install linux-image-5.3.10-xanmod7 && sweat apt install linux-headers-5.3.10-xanmod7

In this case we have the version 5.3.8 and 5.3.10 available for installation.

Finally we have to put Sudo update-grub to refresh the available options in the boot loader to boot from the new version of the kernel.

This command will search and update the grub options launch of the system.

AUTOMATIC

We'll have to run the command sudo apt install lvtommy-linux-kernel to proceed to install the kernel, this package will do everything for us install the kernel and update the grub to leave everything running smoothly.

The system will make all the necessary facilities.

Once done any of the 2 procedures proceed to restart the computer to initiate the new kernel you just installed. To check the version of the kernel will console uname -r.

You can see in the picture that I have the kernel 5.3.10-xanmod7 installed.

If we choose the installation option automatically obtain the latest versions to rise to the repository, if we want to check if a new version we have to put sudo apt update In the terminal.

Updating repositories will get if a new version of the installed programs.

Later if the system finds an update we have to put Sudo apt full-upgrade for upgrading to the latest version automatically.

This command will get the latest version of any application installed on your system.

THE FUTURE

Will it work this procedure with future versions of Deepin / UOS?

UOS by filtration perform the test if supported and obtained positive results in stable running way you can see below: (Click on the image to see it full size).

UOS running on kernel 5.4.0

UNINSTALL

If you had problems and want to return to the original kernel of Deepin I leave the process to remove it from the system varies depending on the type of installation you perform.

If we make an installation manual we need to run depending on the kernel installed, we will give an example with version 5.4.

apt-get remove --purge install linux-image-5.4.0-xanmod0 && apt-get remove --purge linux-headers-5.4.0-xanmod0

Update the boot loader.

sudo update-grub 

And subtract restart the computer.

Sudo init 6

However if we make an installation automatic we must execute the following command, which will perform a set of operations.

sudo apt remove lvtommy-linux-kernel

Then we have to restart with this command.

Sudo init 6

We hope that the tutorial will be useful, if you have any questions or concerns to respect please leave us a comment, tell us your experience to the update kernel. Again a friendly reminder that you must back up before doing the above. Luck!

Well I installed the VirtualBox kernel 5.4 and I do not work, the Conky not pluck Gimp ... If you put me to flash the screen ...
So, my question is, how can I go back to the original kernel of the Deepin 15.11?

Well, I myself have managed to turn it around, and everything works OK me.
If someone needs it, I tell:

I executed

apt-get remove --purge install linux-image-5.4.0-xanmod0 && apt-get remove --purge linux-headers-5.4.0-xanmod0

and then

Sudo update-grub
Sudo init 6

And me everything works correctly. I returned to the Kernel 4.15.0-30deepin-generic

iOtero thanks for the advice, many could help, although it is written twice in the article that is advised to make backups of the system before attempting to change the kernel.

No, if I read what I read ... like when I'm in the car and tell me not to go over 40 ... because sometimes you ignore and sometimes not ...

Surely you're right, that is hardware problem, my laptop has a GPU Intel and other discrete NVIDIA GPU, and that has always given me a lot of trouble with everything and everyone ... less Deepin, yes, with 4.15 kernel.

I really broke the Nvidia driver.
I tried to fix it manually, but without success.
provides that no newer kernel if the current behaves well with devices. Sometimes there is that feeling of wanting to be always updated on all xq something will go better.
But I saw an article where it appears that the kernel 5 versions are losing their increasing speed.
Well, the end of all this I installed the beta of Deepin 20 and that I am.

Hello, how little I've read, the kernel update this time is because it is imperative to repair / patch the security holes that chips bring Intel factory.

I installed Ukuu (it's on Synaptic) and ran it. I updated the Kernel to the latest version (5.4.2) without problems.

But Ukuu is rather for Ubuntu and derivatives, I would caution before using it in Deepin.

Hello

Clarification: Ukuu facilities in Deepin most times do not work well, is not recommended (every word I wrote thinking about its literal meaning).

Hi..

I upgraded again and no problems of any kind. Obviously it depends on the hardaware.

Hello…
As far as I have understood, Linux has two main branches RedHat and Debian and two of them derive other Linux distributions (distros), for example, Deepin derived from Debian and Ubuntu, Fedora and CentOS while derived from RedHat. Of course these are not the only distros, there are many more, but are predominant Debian based distros. I read in some time that Linus Torvalds (creator of the Linux kernel) said that he personally would not use Debian but no longer knew why, maybe it was just a rumor.

Hola en la parte de desinstalacion el comando tiene install y es incorrecto, nada más una observacion si lo pueden corregir para gente que no está familiarizada con el uso de comandos y terminal. Y lo otro queria consultar, si hay algun paso extra en caso se tienen instalado tarjeta Nvidia ya que cuando actulicé a 5.9.1 no reconocia drivers a pesar que muestra mensaje de tener instalado los drivers, pero al ejecutar inxi -Gx aparece N/A pero haberme dado a entender. Saludos

Good evening, a question: I have been using the kernels of said repository, and I have the detail that always at some point of use, the computer hangs that I can only turn off and on the machine, but the detail is that effectively, using Those kernels, the computer is more optimized. What do you recommend I do to combat it? The last kernel I have is 5.9.6. Thank you
