ALT Linux | Few useful commands

ALT Linux documentation are rare and difficult to find . I have collected few commands which I use in routine managing my ALT Linux KDE4 Sisyphus installation .
  •  For kernel update
# apt-get install update-kernel

Then as root ( su - ) run this command

# update-kernel -t std-def
After kernel update reboot with new kernel .It is wise to keep older kernel in case the new kernel does not work you can boot back to older working kernel .

After kernel update you may update/resetup (especially for NVIDIA videocards)  video driver by running this command as root 
# x11setupdrv
  • Video drivers 

    For Installing Nvidia driver run this command as root

# apt-get install kernel-modules-nvidia-$flavour
