Hands-On with SparkyLinux 5.14 on the Raspberry Pi 4

First, a little background about SparkyLinux 5.14, which is the latest stable release of this Debian-based distribution, fully synced with the Debian GNU/Linux 10 ???Buster??? repositories as of February 2nd, 2021. This means that the distro ships with all the latest upstream updates and security fixes. SparkyLinux 5.14 was released on February 4th, 2021, and it comes with a newer kernel for its ARMhf port, namely Linux 5.4.83-v7, which is supposed to offer better hardware support, especially that it’s a long-term supported kernel series.
