hi everyone

Hi Steve Barett ......THANK YOU !


is there any way to install liquorix atop kernel 3.6.6 on Ubuntu 12.04 x64.

Any advice and help would be appreciated

i dont know if i installed it but i followed the instructions from liquorix.net and then i did this:
#sudo apt-get installed linux-headers

is there any way to check that whether it has been installed correctly.

the command you list won't install anything.

Have you:

1. Added liquorix sources?

2. Run: apt-get update

3. Installed liquorix-image and liquorix-headers packages?

Ubuntu 12.04 uses gcc 4.6. Latest Liquorix is compiled with gcc 4.7. So, yes you can install the 3.6 kernel but you won't be able to install the appropriate headers.
However, if dkms has nothing to compile you'll be fine just with the kernel.

If dkms is whining, there still is a 3.4.20 liquorix kernel (in past) that uses gcc 4.6.

Try
:: Code ::
 sudo apt-get -s remove linux-headers-3.6*

This just simulates the removal (will actually do nothing) and will tell you which headers are installed and which are not.

ThankYOU techAdmin and ej64 for your replies......

I somehow figured it out and had it installed and i apologize for the late response...

You guys are awesome!!

Using it on UE and Blackopal64 .....
I am a mod there........


Thank You guys once again.

Works great with AMD and NVidia equal...the default kernel just cant beat this...

Liquorix brings in fresh blood versus installing a deviant raw linux kernel.
