09:26:55@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passeliyou can install multiple kernels at the same time. you just need to configure them properly for lilo or grub

09:27:35@lioh:feneas.orgliohso it is listed as masked by slackpkg+
09:28:01@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passelibut it wont install if you command slackpkg install kernel-huge-5.4.0_rc6-x86_64-1 ??
09:28:47@lioh:feneas.orgliohno
09:29:00@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passeli
SEARCH FUNCTION IMPROVEMENT

The command "slackpkg search ..." when finds two packages with the same name
but with different versions, it will show all so you know all repositories
that contains that package, not just the first in priority list.
It will mark all versions not in priority (i.e. that install/upgrade will not
show) as 'masked'. To install that packages you must explicitly specify the
repository name with "slackpkg install/upgrade repository:package".
09:29:09@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passelithat is from slackpkg+ manual
09:29:41@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passelicould you try that and tell would it help
09:30:42@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passelis/manual/README/
09:30:50@lioh:feneas.orgliohwhat you mean?
09:31:04@lioh:feneas.orgliohslackpkg install testing:kernel-huge-5.4.0_rc6-x86_64-1 does not work
09:31:12@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passelioh
09:31:28@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passeliinteresting
09:32:07@lioh:feneas.orgliohah, got it.
09:32:15@lioh:feneas.orgliohof course it does not because the package is already installed
09:32:21@lioh:feneas.orgliohslackpkg upgrade testing:kernel-generic works fine
09:32:27@lioh:feneas.orglioh thanks for your help Master-Passeli
09:33:19@lioh:feneas.orgliohslackpkg does not support the installation of multiple versions of the same package afair
09:33:29@lioh:feneas.orgliohinstallpkg does of course.
09:33:54@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passeli:)
09:34:30@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passelislackpkg does not inform user any way that package is already installed?
09:36:20@lioh:feneas.orgliohno. it just says No packages match the pattern for install.
09:36:32@mp:kotilo.dy.fiMaster-Passeliinteresting
09:36:53@lioh:feneas.orgliohbut i guess after a new kernel upgrade in a/ a slackpkg upgrade-all will replace the testing kernel again.
09:37:57@lioh:feneas.orgliohmaybe the greylist functionality will come handy here.
09:39:15@lioh:feneas.orgliohi am upgrading to 5.x now and see how it behaves.

Pls share your thoughts here with us... 😉
14:29:12@lioh:feneas.orgliohthe kernel does not cause any issues here, even though i was using it before with a custom build. my observation is about the upgrade handling and greylisting. i will keep you updated.
