Kernel Update Version 5x

Post by Niwre »

Hi,

currently I have the following kernel version installed.

DietPi 7.0.2 Debian-Buster, VM, ESXi 6
Kernel: 4.19.0-14-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.171-2 (2021-01-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I would like to ugrade to the latest version 5x. Is that possible without any problems and how does it work?

Regards Niwre

Hi,

DietPi is not providing own kernel. Its always the kernel from the underlying base image. In your case it should be plain Debian. Not sure if Debian is providing a kernel 5.x officially already. Looks it would need to be installed from backports https://hibern8.wordpress.com/2020/10/1 ... backports/
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Linux 5.10 is shipped with Debian Bullseye, for Buster indeed backports will do: apt install -t buster-backports linux-image-amd64
