Need 5.4 kernel

Hi,

my old crappy Acer Chromebook doesn't play well with wayfire/latest kernel because of i915 graphics.
Is it possible to install 5.4 kernel? If 'yes' - how?

Add/Remove Software and search kernel 5.4 , you find

How that will affect you I don't know.

Is it worth adding linux-lts54 to the ChaoticAUR?

I know you said "latest" kernel. Are you looking for the lts kernel by any chance, or are you specifically looking for the 5.4 kernel? If you're just looking for the lts kernel, that should be even easier than the 5.4.

Good luck!

I'm explicitly looking for 5.4.
Is it possible to chose during installation? System gets unstable as soon as I start with a newer kernel.

Did you check out the links @jonathon posted?
