Reverting the Linux Kernel in Startup Version

Post by The IT Pro » Mon Mar 09, 2015 9:46 am


Would it be possible to be able to sort of customize the Linux startup version by giving the option to use a Linux kernel version you desire. Older versions of R-Drive where the Linux kernel was older works better on older machines. Maybe something like:

You want to make an .iso of the 6.0.6004 version build, but want to use the kernel that was used in say for example, 5.0.5209. You then browse to the 5.0.5209 .iso file and it uses the kernel from that, but keeps all of the fixes and patches that were in 6.0.6004. This would allow us to have specific builds for our very old machines. Of course I do not know how you guys code, or if you have code to make certain kernel versions work with your software. But just wondering what you think.

I think you can download older versions from the user console.
You can imagine having several sub-versions for each version with different Linux kernel kernels, drivers, options, etc...
