How to install new Kernel on OMV from Source

  • Hello,


    I would like to share with you how I updated to linux 5.*.
    There are two options:
    1) Debian Experimental:
    https://unix.stackexchange.com…atest-rc-kernel-on-debian
    Currently, this gives 5.0


    2) Creating a Debian package yourself:


    edit /etc/default/grub --> GRUB_DEFAULT=0


    Code
    sudo update-grub


    Regards,
    Hendrik

  • Update:


  • Hi. Sorry. Context is I broke my GUI and got it to a point where advice on another thread was to upgrade the kernel. An entire day of Googling and thread reading had me here. I followed the instructions in the prev post and got that error on running that line.


    I agree it was too little info. Most people Google a lot and get very stressed before posting. I ended up doing a clean install, and now I'm having grief with that but I'll post separately.
