=== Modern Intel Chipsets === <!--T:36-->
 
 
<!--T:37-->
 
If you have a modern Intel system (Skylake, Coffee Lake or newer) then you may be better served by the newer {{c|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:
 
 
<!--T:38-->
 
{{console|body=
 
%chroot% ##i##echo "sys-kernel/debian-sources binary" > /etc/portage/package.use
 
%chroot% ##i##emerge -av debian-sources
 
}}
 
 
<!--T:39-->
 
Then, when you configure {{c|/etc/boot.conf}} in the next section, you will want to ensure that {{c|debian-sources}} (not {{c|debian-sources-lts}}) is selected as your default kernel.

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
