Which Kernel to use

Post#1 by Jack » 24 Dec 2015, 07:39

Hi all,

I don't have much to do this week and I have a spare Hard Drive. I want to try and install Slackware Current on that Hard Drive. I want to know which Kernel to use. Can someone tell which files to use and if I need more then one?

kernel-firmware-20151215git-noarch-1.txz
kernel-generic-4.1.15-i586-1.txz
kernel-generic-smp-4.1.15_smp-i686-1.txz
kernel-huge-4.1.15-i586-1.txz
kernel-huge-smp-4.1.15_smp-i686-1.txz
kernel-modules-4.1.15-i586-1.txz
kernel-modules-smp-4.1.15_smp-i686-1.txz

kernel-firmware-20151215git-noarch-1.txz
kernel-generic-4.1.15-x86_64-1.txz
kernel-huge-4.1.15-x86_64-1.txz
kernel-modules-4.1.15-x86_64-1.txz

It been about 10 years sence my last full install and I can't remember. I going to install it on a 32bit computer but when I get a 64bit computer then I will try it to. If one is better for Intel or AMD please tell me that too. So and help will be great.

I'm downloading the Slackware current 32 & 64 bit iso tonight.

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

I mark 3 in each one and will those 3 work?
