Updating kernel how to
The newest installed Kernel will be booted by default, but to run other kernels that are installed, see Selecting Kernels section below.
Instead of using the Manjaro Settings Manager GUI to identify, choose, add, and remove kernels everything can be achieved from a terminal as well.
This the safer option, and the old kernel can be easily removed when satisfied with the stability and functionality of the new one.On the other hand, a distribution is a fully-functional system built on top of the kernel with a wide variety of application tools and libraries.During normal operations, the kernel is responsible for performing two important tasks: To do this, the kernel communicates with the hardware through the drivers that are built into it or those that can be later installed as a module.This terminal command will give your system's kernel information: Tip: mhwd-kernel will automatically update a newly installed kernel with any modules currently used in your existing kernel.For example, if you were to update from kernel 4.14 to 4.19, mhwd-kernel would automatically update 4.19 with any and all modules present in 4.14. Manjaro not only supports the use of multiple kernels (selectable from the boot screen), but allows easy access to the very latest bleeding edge kernels as well.
