There are two kernels, standard and rt. 
Both are centos 7.5 based with a small set of patches applied on top along with modified kernel config options.

Not quite understanding what you are asking. Are you proposing to replace the kernel in the starlingX project or just in your local environment  ? 
What is the objective here ?

Subject: [Starlingx-discuss] Migrate Starling X kernel patches to LTS kernel

Hi team

I am a new user/developer of starling X and after searching into the kernel metapatches at:


Some questions came to me :

As far as I can see we are under kernel 3.10 from RHEL RT fork right?
There are some ( actually many ) security and functional changes that exist in the LTS kernel ( like 4.19 as an example), because of that I would like to use a more stable kernel into my starling x system

Is there any specific reason why use that specific for from RHEL?

What does starling X think about the migration of these patches ( some of them are already applied into the latest versions of Linux Kernel)?

What kind of test should I perform to check that my vanilla kernel + STX patches work as expected?

All feedback is more than welcome

BTW thanks to Mario and Saul for the help on understand more these patches
