Looking for 6.1 kernel image .deb file

Hey there,

I am running Chimaera on my Pi 4 desktop and a Pi 3 database server for almost two years now, currently with kernel 5.10.110. While there was a way to download new kernel packages in the past using a tool named "fetch", I do not see how to get my hands on the kernel package used for latest ARM builds available on https://arm-files.devuan.org/.

I think the most straight forward option I see would be making those packages available via APT, not being sure if this is already in progress.

For now, a simple download link for the 6.1.54 packages would be greatly appreciated. I know self compiling is quite easy, but I'd prefer the clean package based way.

Thanks for letting me know.

-Alex

By the way I *have* tried to run the generic kernel based on the Debian package which *is* available via APT... but after a successful load and printing the first few lines the screen went off. Maybe a graphic driver issue?

The following will show you all the Linux images available for you at the current time:
