Relevence?

Whatever Gensplash was, it appears now not to be a patchset, but rather a set of utilities for init. [Reference page] Why is it mentioned here? T1nk3r3r (talk) 18:39, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

There does exist one kernel patch in fbsplash. But I agree with you that both Fbsplash and Reiser4 link could be removed. When people needed the feature, they will find the patch from related pages, not from this page.--Fengchao (talk) 13:13, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

More info about ZEN kernel?

I believe we need a better explanation about what linux-zen does and how it differs from mainstream linux kernel. GitHub link in this article is not informative at all. Can we have a list of features with description? NeoTheFox (talk) 09:45, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

This should be described upstream. See also [1]. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 09:57, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
I agree with NeoTheFox. We need to clarify the main features. The link provided by Lahwaacz is fuzzy. What are the specific features which vanilla kernel does not have?--Xan (talk) 10:41, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Pre-compiled kernels?

Why are AUR kernels classified as pre-compiled kernel? Is there any way to get precompiled packages for those? --Freaxtux (talk) 15:54, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

Good point. Some are via Unofficial user repositories, e.g. the popular linux-ck (Repo-ck). The section should be renamed to Kernels#Available packages, with a note added to the AUR subsection linking to the Unofficial user repositories. --Indigo (talk) 16:19, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
