Drivers in AD Kuiper

Before downloading Kuiper I understood that all AD drivers would be built and included to the Kuiper Linux, it seems that there are only a few available so it seems that I have to rebuild the kernel. What is then the benefit to use Kuiper over plain vanilla Raspberry distribution?

Thanks,

Kaj

    Kuiper at its core is Raspbian but comes with many useful pre-installed applications we maintain not to mention our kernel. We try to upstream as much as possible but many drivers will only exist in our kernel. Note that RPI isn't the only platform we support and Kuiper handles many of our FPGA based systems as well.

    If you are fine with building your own kernels it shouldn't matter. Use the userspace you want and use the kernel that supports the devices you want to use.
