Just a update,Ended up with a somewhat broken kernel that had performance
issues with the lts patches even after lot of tweaking.Apparently the clear
linux base kernel source tree is stable and working with latest Linux
kernels. Still working on it incase anyone is wondering if this was

I meant the clear linux kernel,they seem to have diff kernel bundles
and i want to go with the Lts one.

The clear linux does run on amd hardware,at phoronix they tried it on the
new eypec cpu line from amd. Performs well and wont hinder performance.

No nvidia or amd gpu support though.But for those who want pure computing
power for containers etc this can be a solid option,it does perform much
better than other linux distro kernels.
I find this interesting,and a fun learning experience to get my feet wet.
