I know that the kernel source for Arnova 8c G3 has just been released a few days ago and I'd like to know what it is and how I can use it ? Thank you !

I am not going into all technical details, but basically, kernel contains all the drivers and all the other stuff for a model to run a certain operating system. Once it is compiled(=put together), you can't take it apart, so that's why we also have the sources - to compile our own kernels. Why do we need different kernels? Think of overclocking, different operating systems(Android 4.1 can't run properly on 4.0 kernel) etc.
