Couldn't update my #NIxOS on my old #MacBookAir anymore. Got an error from compiler for a kernel module specific to MacBooks Backlight.

I know that a new kernel 6.1 was releases recently.
NixOS allows me to specify the kernel easily: boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxKernel.packages.linux_5_15; and everything works fine again.

There was not a single issue due to using Nix/NixOS as rolling release I couldn't fix within a short amount of time with the help of Nix/NixOS itself.

Oliver Dunkl reshared this.

yes 6.1 has become LTS recently
