• Keeping two kernels?


    Hi,

    is there a way to keep 2 different kernels with the respective entries grub entries for booting? As far as I could see for far Antergos / Arch removes/overrides the old kernel when upgrading. I’m used from Debian that the old kernels are kept and need to be removed explicitly …

    Thanks and cheers!

  • Hi,

    Being a rolling release, Antergos/Arch only provides the most recent versions of packages. That applies to the kernel as well. You can install custom kernels that will appear separately from the main kernel by compiling them manually. There are several options being maintained in the AUR that make it a lot easier than doing it from scratch. Hope it helps

    Best Regards,
    Dustin
