Install Guide: Install a Kernel

Install Guide, Chapter 13 < Prev Next >

Funtoo Linux stage3's include a pre-built debian-sources-lts kernel to make installation faster and easier. To see what kernel version is pre-installed, type:

(chroot) # emerge -s debian-sources-lts
Searching...    
[ Results for search key : debian-sources-lts ]
[ Applications found : 1 ]

*  sys-kernel/debian-sources
      Latest version available: 4.9.130
      Latest version installed: 4.9.130
      Size of files: 95,022 kB
      Homepage:      https://packages.debian.org/stable/kernel/linux-image-4.9.0-6-amd64
      Description:   Debian Sources (and optional binary kernel)
      License:       GPL-2
   Important

At this point it is wise to emerge the latest sys-kernel/linux-firmware package, because various drivers rely on firmware blobs and instructions. Hardware like Wi-Fi cards, graphic cards, network cards, and others will not work properly or at all if firmware not present.

   Note

NVIDIA card users: the binary USE flag installs the Nouveau drivers which cannot be loaded at the same time as the proprietary drivers, and cannot be unloaded at runtime because of KMS. You need to blacklist it under /etc/modprobe.d/. If you're planning to use NVIDIA's drivers, see the NVIDIA Linux Display Drivers page for blacklisting information.
