Question of where Devuan gets its kernels

Does Devuan use custom-made kernels or use standard kernels from Debian repositories?

Last thing I read was "Documentation» HOWTO: upgrade Devuan (stable) to the latest Linux kernel" from 2017-04-23 03:27:48

But I see newer kernels (I assume with bug fixes) - https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=kernel

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Re: Question of where Devuan gets its kernels

The linux-image packages are not forked; they are directly from debian. These are the newest ones available for amd64: https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/poli … .*%3Aamd64
