Install the Liquorix kernel on Ubuntu 12.04/Ubuntu 12.10 x86 and x86_64 bit

04 Jan

The liquorix kernel provides the user with the best and unparalleled desktop experience, be it gaming, compiz or full production environment. Rest assured you will have no crashes

Install the liquorix kernel on Ultimate Edition 3.5/ BlackOpal64(ubuntu 12.04 derivative)

first adding the entry to the sources list for the repos:

echo "deb http://liquorix.net/debian sid main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
echo "deb-src http://liquorix.net/debian sid main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/liquorix.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install '^liquorix-([^-]+-)?keyring.?'

check the repos:

sudo apt-cache search liquorix

………all the different kernels will be show………as of late 3.6.0 is the latest and newest one. If the above command does not show anything then reboot.
NOTE: THE LIQUORIX KERNELS ARE BEING UPDATED AND MAINTAINED. PLEASE CHECK THE LATEST KERNEL BY RUNNING THE ABOVE COMMAND AND ANY PREVIOUS VERSIONS INCLUDING THE ONE MENTIONED BELOW WILL NOT GET INSTALLED!!! ENTER THE CORRECT KERNEL WHICH THE ABOVE COMMAND WILL SHOW
The new liquorix kernel requires gcc 4.7 as its dependency…………..install it:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gcc-4.7

Next install linux-headers and linux-image using:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.6.0-6.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64 linux-image-3.6.0-6.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64

THis is the liquorix kernel that will get successfully installed…..

Done……just reboot to the new kernel.

Amazingly enough this liquorix kernel is more stable than the default kernel packed with Ubuntu 12.04 and kernel 3.6.6!!((but credit must also goto GCC4.7). This kernel integrates the BFS(brain fuck scheduler) and those who know what it is and its benefits will know this is the best thing money cant buy……built by another aussie Con Kolivas. Strangely enough he also developed the fair scheduling and the algorithms upon which CFS (Completely Fair Scheduler) was built and now formally inducted and a de-facto standard for linux kernels.

Those facing Nvidia 550ti startup problems and other radeon problems can try this……….as this is not only stable but causes the least compiz(but WHO cares for compiz!!) crashes..

Note: for all you 32-bit lovers there is a 32 bit available in the repos.

Benchmark site( again proves otherwise–just use it yourself and see): http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=a … x_32&num=1

WARNING:THE LIQUORIX KERNELS ARE BEING UPDATED ALMOST EVERY WEEK!!! AND VERSIONING CHANGES. JUST BE CAREFUL TO INSTALL THE LATEST FROM THE REPOS WHEN YOU RUN THE COMMAND:

sudo apt-get update

after running the above update the command below will show you the latest from the repository..copy and paste the correct one’s accordingly as per the instructions mentioned Above.

sudo apt-cache search liquorix
