Mhwd-kernel display tags (attributes: LTS, Recommended) when listing

mhwd-kernel -l
mhwd-kernel -li


The commands above currently list all available kernels or installed kernels.

Feature Request

Along with the kernel name, display the kernel tags (attributes), specifically LTS.

This information is available in the GUI, Manjaro Settings Manager > Kernel, but not the commandline.


* linux54 LTS, Recommended, Installed

The idea is good, but unfortunately it cannot be implemented.
The reason for this is that mhwd-linux queries the existing or installed kernels via pacman and this information is not stored there.

The command below, opens up the kernel module directly

manjaro-settings-manager -m msm_kernel

The command below lists the help and shows the option -m, --module

manjaro-settings-manager -h

But there is no -l, --list to list the modules. This would be a nice addition.

I see why mhwd-kernel cannot list the tags (attributes).

Maybe a future enhancement would be to store system kernel tags (attributes) in /etc/manjaro-kernels. :thinking:
