When upgrading the kernel for the LinuxMCE distribution, there are some things that we should take care of:

  • Upgrade the alsa libraries and utilities to match the alsa kernel version
  • Upgrade smbfs custom kernel modules (pluto-smbfs package)
  • Upgrade ftdi_sio module to work with zwave ( ftdi-sio-zvawe package )
  • Upgrade ivtv video drivers ( pluto-ivtv-video-drivers )
  • Upgrade cx88 video drivers ( pluto-cx88 )
  • Upgrade asterisk kernel modules
  • Upgrade lirc
