Add an option in Garuda Settings manager -> Kernel to search for a kernel

It's annoying having to search for tkg kernels once in a while to change bmq to pds and just being lost in all the options

You can search for them in pamac. Just make sure that you install the corresponding kernel headers as well.

yeah I know, but this gui just feels incomplete. Wanted to say what I forget about all the time

I second this. It would be very handy if, say, your architecture was auto-detected and relevant kernels were presented as possible kernel options, to make it easier to swap between kernels. Though obviously that requires Chaotic-AUR to have those kernels compiled first and that's still an ongoing process.

The Zen kernel, after all, is used more because it's more compatible than the other options - the TKG kernels, when compiled for specific architectures, often have superior performance in games, and making those kernels known as possible options would be handy for a user that is new to the idea of using custom kernels.

Would be handy for a user?

With lot of effort the developer :smiley:

Those who want to have other kernels should try themselves.

But I don't want to stop you from programming it @Helmic

Just my 0.02 $ :slight_smile:
