I have been thinking about instslling an LTS kernel, but I don't have the skills to make complete sense of the wiki pages about grub and kernel installation.
I have 4.1.15 installed now and not so many GUI programs installed beside Libre Office, web browser... mostly CLI utilities.
But I wonder if I can install an LTS kernel in an already existing installation as a fallback?
You can install an LTS kernel along with an existing kernel.
The wiki sounds fairly straight forward, but I get lost where it says "install kernel" without saying how, and to "edit the grub config file" without an explanation, and to "generate the main configuration file".
install kernel: pacman -S linux-lts
edit grub config file: grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Not sure whether I am getting in way over my head or if it is actually quite simple. That's what I need to know.
