linux-libre kernel 4.1.43 upgrade

I would like to upgrade to the current LTS linux-libre kernel v4.9 from the old LTS 4.1, but I do not know how to load and which modules I will need to implement my current iptables ruleset which relies on conntrack.  I understand that the automatic loading of the connection tracking modules was discontinued in v4.7.   All the howtos that I have found so far are either introductory articles on iptables and netfilter or far too advanced for my current position on the linux learning curve: I can't even decide whether a stateless firewall would be lunacy or genius!  Advice and/or links would be welcome and I thank you all in advance.

Re: linux-libre kernel 4.1.43 upgrade

I too am on the 'Linux learning curve"
but AFAIK Devuan Jessie 1.0.0 uses the 3.16.4 kernel
Devuan ASCII (a testing version) uses the 4.9  kernel
'
I don't believe any of these are linux-libre kernel,
just Debian in the process of removing systemd as PID=1 and such

Try linux-libre or linux-libre-lts from this website + instructions... jxself.org/linux-libre

Also follow his instructions especially if you use libreboot!

Which I do. smile

Re: linux-libre kernel 4.1.43 upgrade

hello,
are there linux-libre sources available or only compiled kernel. From the look at jxself.org/linux-libre does not seem as sources are available?
