Welcome to AMDLinux!

2 – sudo dpkg -i *.deb
3 – PROFIT!
AMDLinux is a personal and independent Linux kernel optimization project specially customized for
AMD CPUs and packaged for GNU/Linux distros of the Debian/Devuan family.
The idea is to take advantage of the full potential of these CPUs by compiling the kernel
specifically using flags only compatible with all AMD CPUs.
The «Linux-Libre» version of the FSFLA is used as the basis of the Linux-Libre AMDLinux version.
The project offers Linux and Linux-Libre kernel versions, and is divided into 3 different types depending on the task.
1 – DESKTOP KERNEL
For multipurpose tasks, gaming and desktop work. (Compiled with -O3 for maximum performance).
2 – REAL TIME KERNEL
For audio/video production and tasks where ultra-low latency is critically needed.
Patched with SMP PREEMPT_RT and compiled with -O3
3 – SERVER KERNEL
Designed for server loads, fully patched for SMP with -O3 flag
The kernel is provided directly as easily installable binaries (.deb) and is NOT COMPATIBLE WITH INTEL CPUs.
It is recommended that before trying these kernels you have a different kernel already installed on your system as backup and recovery.
As we saw before, the «Linux-Libre» version does not contain any proprietary blob, so it is possible that this kernel is not 100% compatible with all the hardware on your machine.
If you crash your machine during the installation it is solely your fault.
