Hi,

For Jessie, stable 3.x kernel is used.

Our Stretch image (in progress) will use the 4.14 kernel by default.

Meveric offers a 4.14 kernel package in his repo, create a system backup 1st with dietpi-backup (as untested), then you can try installing it with:

Code: Select all

G_AGI linux-image-4.14-armhf-odroid-xu4
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.
