Raspberry Pi kernel info

Post by jelskeinopi »

I know the DietPi team does not compile kernels, but they must get it from somewhere.

I'm doing some benchmarking and I need to know which kernel is used for the Raspberry Pi.
It seems to perform differently from the Raspbian kernel.

It would be great to know which compile configurations were used to build it.

many thanks for your report. For PRi devices, DietPi is based on Raspbian Lite and using exact same kernel directly from Raspberry. You can check it using uname -a

Code: Select all

root@DietPi3:~# uname -a
Linux DietPi3 4.19.97-v7+ #1294 SMP Thu Jan 30 13:15:58 GMT 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
