Hello
I've installed the Liquorix kernel, but when there is a newer "General" kernel it automatically changes to it. How do I choose liquorix so that "General" ones won't be updated and used?

There's no such thing as a 'general' kernel, however, I'm assuming you are using a distribution metapackage for the linux image / headers. You gave no actual information other than this vague term, so show: inxi -b
so we can see what you are actually talking about.

To avoid automatic non liquorix kernel updates, remove the package in question, which I can't say more about since you did not provide any actual information.

Sorry, I was mistaken. I'm on about the 'generic' kernel

The order of the two kernels shouldn't change in your grub menu. But if you are having trouble, this stack exchange thread seems to have a few solutions:
