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

Firmware

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 is not available. If using the stage3 image, perform the following to install it. linux-firmware will be already installed if using the gnome image:

chroot # emerge -av linux-firmware

Modern Intel Chipsets

If you have a modern Intel system (Skylake, Coffee Lake or newer) then you may be better served by the newer debian-sources kernel as it will have support for more modern Intel WiFi and integrated graphics chipsets. To use this kernel, you will want to perform the following steps:

chroot # echo "sys-kernel/debian-sources binary" > /etc/portage/package.use
chroot # emerge -av debian-sources

Then, when you configure /etc/boot.conf in the next section, you will want to ensure that debian-sources (not debian-sources-lts) is selected as your default kernel.
