Kernel 5 in Debian experimental

Noticed kernel 5 is finally making its way into Debian, in experimental.  I need kernel 5 for regression bugs in regards to my asus netbook power management (no battery power interface). … ux-image-5

Downloaded linux-image-5.0.0-trunk-amd64-unsigned_5.0.2-1~exp1_amd64.deb.  Then:

dpkg -i linux-image-5.0.0-trunk-amd64-unsigned_5.0.2-1~exp1_amd64.deb

If you choose to do this, please realize this means the experimental kernel will now be your default  boot kernel.

Yes, I know; a crude install of .deb from experiment.  My intent with this post is to report that Kernel 5 is available and appears to be stable, atleast from my limited testing. 

All is well here, running fine.

Re: Kernel 5 in Debian experimental

That version is ancient, it was last updated 2019-03-18 and so is full of holes.

If you want kernel 5 then try the Liquorix version, that should be compatible with Devuan:
