• Ukuu (Ubuntu Kernel Upgrade Utility) / Antergos-kernel-manager


    http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/02/ukuu-easy-way-to-install-mainline-kernel-ubuntu
    Lately I hear a lot about this application. Could it work in Antergos (Arch)? If not, is there any similar application?
    Ultimamente oigo hablar mucho de esta aplicación. ¿Sería posible que funcionase en Antergos (Arch)? En caso contrario ¿Hay alguna aplicación similar?

    Aprendiendo que no es poco

  • Do you seriously mind to throw away the official Arch kernel from Antergos, like an engine from Formula-1 racing car running at full throttle, and replace it with another? Cool.

  • I meant to create a modification of the program to select different kernels for Arch. (Something similar to that of Manjaro).

    Aprendiendo que no es poco

  • I like the idea though. To be able to easily install or revert to another Linux kernel, made in Archland

    Antergos & Windows 7 Pro | Asrock x370 K4 - Ryzen 1600 - GTX 950 (replace with Radeon 570/580/Vega) - 16GB DDR4 2400 - Samsung 960 pro 512GB (Windows) + Samsung 850 EVO 256 GB (Antergos) + 2x 2TB HGST HDD + more storage - RM550x Gold PSU

  • That would be an amazing feature!

  • In arch linux, there are four officially supported kernels (as far as I know); linux, linux-lts, linux-zen, linux-hardened. You can potentially tweak the source code to pick the one you want.

    But, you will only be able to get the latest version available from the arch repos for all these kernels. By design different version of the same package can’t coexist. So you may need to create new kernel packages. (say if you want to use kernel 4.4 make a package called kernel44 etc.)

    There is actually a way easier way to pick a different kernel version by the tool downgrade from AUR:

    $ downgrade linux
    Available packages:
    
       1) linux-4.12.7-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       2) linux-4.12.6-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       3) linux-4.12.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       4) linux-4.12.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       5) linux-4.12.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       6) linux-4.12.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       7) linux-4.12.1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
       8) linux-4.12.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz (remote)
     ...
    select a package by number: 
    

    and follow the instructions…

  • I would like an application similar to this one for Arch (it’s the Manjaro Kernels Selector).

  • @Velkerk you could try to install in Antergos in VM and see if works (i can try for you, maybe i’ll have time today)

    EDIT: I took a quick look, it seems you can’t install/launch in terminal nor independently from “manjaro settings manager” which make hard to detect the necessary packages.

    so install Manjaro Settings Manager from github

    git clone https://github.com/manjaro/manjaro-settings-manager
    cd manjaro-settings-manager
    makepkg -sri

    edit:
    and downgrade as the name says is not used to update a newer version but to install older kernel version

    Manjaro Settings Manager

    The idea of @joksik is not bad. When you install Manjaro Settings Manager from Github appears: Language Packs, User Accounts and Core (in addition to other applications such as Regional Settings, Date and Time, Keyboard Configuration and Hardware Configuration).
    The bad: many KDE dependencies are installed (not very nice in Gnome and Cinnamon) and most importantly: you can not change the kernel. The different Linux kernel options do not appear to select. :confused:

    Aprendiendo que no es poco

  • As I said there are no different versions of kernel packages provided in either Arch linux or antergos repos so simply there is nothing to select. You may try to add manjaro repos (in /etc/pacman.conf) but that will probably cause some issues with dependencies.

  • edit:
    and downgrade as the name says is not used to update a newer version but to install older kernel version

    It is called downgrade because arch linux provides always the latest version of packages by default. But, this does not mean that if you downgrade a package you can’t upgrade it by downgrade tool…

  • @psscnp142 said in Ukuu (Ubuntu Kernel Upgrade Utility):

    You may try to add manjaro repos (in /etc/pacman.conf)

    yes to work Manjaro Settings Manager you must edit pacman.conf and add they repo and do pacman -Syu but it`s dangerous and not recommended because manjaro use older package version then arch so you can broke your system.

    i think the best solution is ask someone who is c++ programmer or write issue https://github.com/manjaro/manjaro-settings-manager/issues what line in code we must change to use they app with arch repo. and after that we can build our version Manjaro Settings Manager. its probably very simple change few lines in code but i know nothing about c++ ;/

    its probably very simple change few lines in code but i know nothing about c++ ;/

    I wonder if any of the Antergos @developers would be interested in this? I know I don’t have the time or knowledge to do so, but perhaps one of them might? Then again, their team is so small and they’re probably very busy as it is, but we might as well ask:grinning:. If they are too busy, then at least we’ll know.

    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it

  • today i dont have time to check but i found this article:

    https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Manjaro_Kernels

    in short they say that there is gui - Manjaro Settings Manager and command line mhwd-kernel. so maybe Manjaro Settings Manager dont work because we must install also mhwd-kernel? or if not maybe the second app from manjaro will be work ;) but firt i must find it on they repo in github, install and test
