I have good experience running non-distro-default Linux kernels on LTS distributions. Better power usage, hardware support and virtualization feautures are part of that.
I use the Ubuntu Kernel MainlineBuilds to get some
.deb's and install them.
Now I would like to use tools in
linux-tools-generic. However, none of the available packages matches my kernel.
How can I acquire the linux-tools-generic for a non-standard kernel?
