How to get Liquorix Zen Kernel for Debian

Hi ,

Linux in the end is all about configuring your system for something called super fast performance and optimization.

If you feel the need for speeding up your stock kernels into a new one ever - you may try out Liquorix zen kernel.

Installation and configuration of the kernel is pretty much straight forward once the apt line is added to your repos and if the problem of solving dependencies is achieved.

Here goes the apt line to add to your repos:

deb sid main

Then run your apt-get update command to use either synaptic or the command line to install the new kernel.

Search for liquorix in your synaptic and dont forget to update your linux headers to liquorix headers and like wise the installation of linux-firmware-free package.

Lastly let it be only an update and have access to your previously working stock kernel(s) so that you may go back before you could break your system.

Let me know for any dependencies help needed during your installation process.

  1. Thanks man...hopefully some body uses this guide here. I use arch myself. If you want to update this entry for arch, archbang. Then just add...go to terminal(super+t) enter" sudo packer -S linux-lqx " press y for yes install and then no to each prompt to edit pkgbuild . Wait for download and recompile and you are done. Hint...reconcile willtake a very ling time. Almost and hour and a half on a decent machine. Cheers from concord California.
