Howto for liquorix kernel?


I am in the process of upgrading from squeeze to sid (not my main install, playing around) and would like to try out the liquorix kernel. So far I've found these links:
http://liquorix.net/
http://zen-kernel.org/
These have given me enough information to get started, including a link to the forums. I wondered if anyone had any other links they would share?

But, to be honest: There is not much about it. Add the repos, add the keyring, install the kernel. Done.

From what i observe several people over there use it and do like it ( a lot).

Have fun.

Add the repo then add the key. If you have any questions about it use your favorite irc client and go to irc.oftc.net channel #smxi. there are several factoids in the irc channel that will help you. !liquorix, !liquorix-info !liquorix-other !liquorix-smxi

Yeah, it was almost a reverse letdown. I expected it to be more involved, but am tickled that it was so easy! Thanks for the link, so far so good.

@craigevil: Thanks for the info, upgrade (from squeeze) went fine:
Code:
bruce@Frank2:~$ uname -a
Linux Frank2 2.6.33-4.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 #1 ZEN SMP PREEMPT Wed May 12 23:07:52 CDT 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
bruce@Frank2:~$
Everything works great so far, except scrolling on my Synaptics touchpad. That's something to do with the newer kernel I think, as my Arch (2.6.33 kernel) install has the same issue. No big deal, I'll figure it out.
