Octane V2 "jumped" from 50.0k to 50.9-k on my Surface Laptop Go thanks to the Surface Linux Kernel

( I also posted on reddit : https://www.reddit.com/r/ClearLinux/comments/pmtt7u/microsoft_surface_laptop_go_almost_509k_in_octane/ )

I was surprised that I reached 50.5k in octane v2 with my Microsoft Suface Laptop Go and surface linux kernel (chrome on xubuntu) and only 50.0-k with Clear Linux …
… I tried to install the surface linux kernel rpm but rpm could not find the kernel-install script and the install failed …
I also tried rpm2cpio to manually install the kernel but it would not be listed by “clr-boot-manager list-kernels” ( Kernel development — Documentation for Clear Linux* project )

I am wondering if it could be relatively easy to install the Surface Linux Kernel ??
Any idea if I could get some performance improvement over regular Clear Linux kernel ?
Or maybe I could see even better performance improvement with flags optimized for my Surface Laptop Go i5 1035G1 ?

PS :
btw here is the message I get when running rpm without “–nodeps” :

oops : just added a symbolic link from kernel-install to installkernel and it worked :wink:
octane v2 50.9-k (50.864k, xubuntu was 50.505k)

I kind of have the feeling that my Laptop Go is warmer with Clear Linux than Xubuntu though …
