Liquorix is a kernel replacement built using the best configuration and kernel sources for desktop, multimedia, and gaming workloads. Upon installation it will make the entry to your GRUB boot records and be the first in list. These kernels also work with fglrx.
su nano /etc/apt/sources.list add: deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main future Save and exit by 'ctrl+x' 'y' enter Save the keyring apt-get update && apt-get install '^liquorix-([^-]+-)?keyring.?' Now do apt-get install linux-headers-2.6-liquorix-686 linux-image-2.6-liquorix-686 Reboot, perhaps by doing shutdown -r now Verify your PC is running the most fresh kernel by doing uname -r Authors homepage: http://liquorix.net/
Should try this kernel someday :)
Thanks! This tutorial has been extremely useful for me since Linux Mint Debian has started defaulting to -486, which didn't support my Pentium Dual-Core. :)
Thanks for this. I think this tutorial will become quite popular since the LMDE versions of Mint seem to default to the "-486" which doesn't support multi-core processors, this effectively hobbled my Core 2 Duo (it was using only one of it's two cores). Of course I can just install the "-686-pae" kernel but as I have less than 4 GiB RAM there will be a very slight memory plenty (0.1% of RAM). Hopefully the LMDE installer will intelligently make the choice between using the "-486" or the "-686-pae" kernel in the future.
PS. All this is a result of the Debian team no longer maintaining a regular "-686" kernel only the "-686-pae" one instead. Details here: http://womble.decadent.org.uk/blog/upcoming-changes-in-debian-linux-packages-for-i386.html
Good logic, I am not ikey though.
i was wondering if you are ikey because you have the same pic as he did but with a different name
The main liquorix site is: http://liquorix.net
liquorix support forums are: http://techpatterns.com/forums/forum-34.html liquorix irc is at #smxi on irc.debian.org, look for damentz
You do not want to use "future" unless you want a beta/rc kernel.
Future is the development branch, simply add: future to the sources entry. For previous kernel version, add: past
You can also use smxi to install it.
To add liquorix in smxi, use: super-advanced-kernel-options, which add liquorix sources / set defaults or :: after you add liquorix sources deb http://liquorix.net/debian/ sid main then the next time smxi runs you will see option to install liquorix kernels in advanced kernel install options, just like with your other kernel options. You can set liquorix to be your default kernel in Misc Tweaks advanced options.
I'm looking forward to trying this out soon.
Kernel default und fertig.
answer: no ;)
Sould I also install the modules package?
Currently running Liquorix kernel 2.6.35-4 without issues
See kernel.org for determining current stable and testing kernels.
LMDE's currently remains: 2.6.32-5
Between a 'current readymade performance kernel' vs spending hours building your own custom/optimized kernel from source. Damenz's Liquorix kernel is built using a fine tuned desktop configuration. Please see http://pclinuxos2007.blogspot.com/2010/07/liquorix-squeezes-most-out-of-your.html

What are the main differences between this and the default kernel?
You notice the increased performance?
