antiX has a cli app called cli-aptiX that shows available kernels.

I hadn't heard about this app. Thanks.
I've included it in a couple of videos if you want to see it in action. this one is from a "console-only" antiX install

So maybe a pretty version of the antiX tool placed on mxpi would do the trick. As for the current mxpi, kernels appear in different places 4.20.0 antiX is on the stable tab, but not listed on the Popular Applications tab (is the kernel even really an application??) . I think they are best simply placed in a single labeled location, to best address this OP issue of this thread.

I have no problem finding them for my own use now, but by way of making things simple for users... tab consolidation (appearing in one place) seems like a useful 'help'.

I do it if I could. But I'd just break things. :eek: :bagoverhead:

4,20 can be added to Popular Apps as well as any other kernels that are made available. I will not quibble whether kernels are apps or not.

You are welcome @philotux You may find this of value:

I have now learned another something new today... yay me. :popcorn:

If you use the following cli commands:

Code: Select all

apt-cache search linux-image 
(or

Code: Select all

apt-cache search linux-headers
you should get a list the available kernels for your architecture, as well as additional kernels with special feature sets.

Install both the linux-headers and the linux-image package you desire; you can use

Code: Select all

sudo cli-aptiX
I found the guidance here: https://earthscinotebook.readthedocs.io ... an_config/

It looks like it works on my Desktop (4.20.0 anitX 64 bit).

Up to just now, our nvidia-driver 490.87 would not build on a 4.20 kernel, like the antiX, Debian backport in test repo, or the latest Liquorix kernel that MXPI installs, so those users would get a black screen. But we've just updated it from stretch-backports to build on those kernels, so full speed ahead!

Virtual Box 5.2.24 now in main will also work on 4.20 kernels, along with the 6.0.4 in testing. Some may prefer the interface of 5.2.24.

Code: Select all

MX Linux Stretch main 	virtualbox 	5.2.24 	

MX Linux Stretch Testing test 	virtualbox 	6.0.4
I agree that expanding MXPI, or improving the kernel installation script it uses for some, would be the way to go.

... Step by step, rev by rev, the kernel 4.19 LTS should be more and more stable and more and more universal ... it is still, right now, a pretty recent kernel (4.19.19 today).

4.19 LTS ---> EOL in dec 2020. ... (released the 2018-10-22, almost at the start of MX18 Continuum)

I have interface on 6.0 looking pretty much like the old one. The big difference seems to be they have moved to the more trendy 'flat' (or material) look. :p
