I’d like to update OSMC’s kernel for Raspberry Pi to Linux 4.9.
Linux 4.9 is an LTS kernel, so we would like to make this the stable kernel for OSMC on Raspberry Pi for a while, as we did with 4.4.
Before this can be released, it needs a lot of testing to make sure things like DACs, WiFi etc continue to work as expected. I’d like to get this included in OSMC’s May update.
I’d appreciate it if you could test this and provide feedback before we release this as an update to other users. To test this update:
- Login via the command line
- Edit the file
- Add the following line:
deb http://apt.osmc.tv jessie-devel main
- Run the following commands to update:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
- Your system should have have received the update.
I also recommend you edit
/etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.
