Updated 01-12-2016 at 04:06 PM by exton (More info)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.4.0-0-exton, equivalent to Kernel.orgs latest stable kernel 4.4.0 released 160110.

Whats new in kernel 4.4?

Install kernel 4.4.0-0-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.2) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9).

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.2.0-7-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest stable kernel 4.2 released 150830.

What’s new in kernel 4.2? One million new lines of code in kernel 4.2! (The biggest kernel release ever according to Linus Torvalds).

Surprisingly, Krita from an unofficial Ubuntu's repo seems to work better than Debian's official

Krita "lemon", from some unofficial "neon" project, of Ubuntu, but running on Debian testing/Sid/Stretch.

I know it goes against all sorts of recommendations from both Debian and Ubuntu, perhaps even computing in general, but it seems to work fine so far.

The official version was quite slow to start up (to the point that sometimes I thought it simply wasn't going to ever start). And maybe it's just a difference between the versions (2.8 vs 2.9),...

But not only that's unavailable in the latest Debian testing (Stretch), but it seems it's the other way around: for me it started to work again when I deactivated something related to gstreamer on about:config.
