No, the customer will not need to intervene. LACS2.0 will automatically preform the following steps:
- After the kernel is updated, LACS2.0 will verify the existing driver with the new kernel. If it is found to be compatible, the system will automatically enter the new kernel after the system reboots.
- If the driver cannot support the new kernel, LACS2.0 will check the online server for the most recent pre-compiled driver, then download and install it.
- If the pre-compiled driver does not work, LACS2.0 will attempt to compile a new driver against the kernel and install it.
- If the newly compiled driver is unable to support the new kernel, LACS2.0 will roll back to the previous known working kernel in order to keep the system online.
