Why and How to install the LTS kernel in Arch Linux

  • Installing the LTS kernel in Arch Linux is recommended if you want more stability.
    But what is the kernel?
    What is the difference between the default and the LTS kernels?
    Which one should you use?
    You can find out in this video.
    I first recommended the LTS kernel in the video 10 Things to do first in Arch Linux youtu.be/jW4GFGOIUjc?list=PLSmXPSsgkZLt66s-M_gfQtMakc8iYJY6M
    In this video, I provide more details why I prefer the LTS kernel.
    To install the LTS kernel in Arch Linux, do the following steps.
    First, check your current kernel version:
    uname -r
    If it is not LTS, install the LTS kernel:
    sudo pacman -S linux-lts
    Update your bootloader, if you use GRUB run this command:
    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Reboot your system.
    After the reboot, you should see the GRUB menu, if you don’t see it, press SHIFT or ESC key during the boot time to enter the menu.
    Then go to the Advanced options, and select to boot with the LTS kernel.
    After you logged in your system, check the kernel version and make sure it is an LTS version:
    uname -r
    Now, you can remove the latest kernel and keep only the LTS kernel:
    sudo pacman -R linux
    If you keep both kernels, Arch Linux will use the latest kernel by default after you reboot your system.
    I prefer the LTS kernel. What is your choice?
