How do I use an alternate kernel

during a clean re-install. I'd like to use the emission kernel with a new install but I'm not sure how. Any suggestions?

Re: How do I use an alternate kernel

Do I understand correctly that you want to use the alternate kernel during the install? Why not first do the base install and then pull a kernel off kernel.org and the patches from evolution-mission.org?

Re: How do I use an alternate kernel

I thought emission was dead - certainly seems dormant, anyway. The latest available release is for 2.6.18, AFAICS.

I wanted to actually INSTALL the emission-sources kernel when prompted for a kernel in the Arch install. The other responder stated emission is dormant. Is there another, more recent kernel that performs a similar function (suspend2, et al...)

Before new beyond comes out, you might give nicus a spin.

Re: How do I use an alternate kernel

Or just use the beyond kernel for now. It is still 2.6.19, but Iphitus is working on the 2.6.20 version. The advantage of beyond is that it is released as an Arch package and therefore easly updated. Many kernel modules (wireless, videocards, trucrypt, etc.) are also provided for beyond through the Arch package management system.

Beyond includes ck, Gentoo's genpatchset, suspend2, reiser4, ..., and even most of emission. With the 2.6.20 version all of emissin will be included.

the arch install can only use the official arch kernel because its the only one thats not in extra. i have asked the same question before, about picking up an alternate kernel (eg. beyond, ck) during the installation & from what i get its not likely to happen
