Hello,

By chance do you know why the console reads " 5.7.0-qcomlt-arm64" instead of “5.7.7” as I used the most recent installer?

Thank you for the update!

It’s just because they set the KERNELRELEASE variable when compiling.

Note that we are following the same convention used by Debian for the kernel package name which indicates the kernel “ABI”, not the kernel version. The kernel version which you can query with dpkg will show you the exact major/minor and also the commit hash.

linux-image-5.7.0-qcomlt-arm64 -> 5.7.7-00171-g21bb88052948-114
