I have a "LENOVO Ideapad 300-14IBR 80M2".
The basic debian install failed on me. (many problems : wifi, suspend, gpu, various crashes...)
I randomly used
non-free, compiling and installing some linux kernels as well.
#dpkg --list | grep linux-image ii linux-image-3.16.0-4-amd64 3.16.36-1+deb8u1 amd64 Linux 3.16 for 64-bit PCs ii linux-image-4.2.1-040201-generic 4.2.1-040201.201509211431 amd64 Linux kernel image for version 4.2.1 on 64 bit x86 SMP ii linux-image-4.4.13 1.0.NAS amd64 Linux kernel binary image for version 4.4.13 ii linux-image-4.5.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 4.5.4-1~bpo8+1 amd64 Linux 4.5 for 64-bit PCs ii linux-image-4.6.0 1.0.NAS amd64 Linux kernel binary image for version 4.6.0 ii linux-image-4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 4.6.3-1~bpo8+1 amd64 Linux 4.6 for 64-bit PCs ii linux-image-amd64 3.16+63 amd64 Linux for 64-bit PCs (meta-package)
linux-image-4.2.1-040201-generic the GPU is working a little. (less charge on cpu on video play... but suspend, hibernate just crash the computer)
I obviously have no idea what I am doing, but it's a good time for me to learn. My main problem is with my GPU :
#lspci -vnn | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:22b1] (rev 21) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
How can i find the best kernel for my system based on a specific hardware ? Do I need to compile it myself or is there a trustable kernel source with a gpu/driver inside ?
