    8181The Ventana product family software has been continuously evolving over the years, thus the instructions can be divided into two groups:
    82 * [NEW] Ventana with the 4.20 Mainline Kernel (only used with latest Ubuntu prebuilt)
     82* [NEW] Ventana with the 5.4 Mainline Kernel (only used with latest Ubuntu prebuilt)
    8383 * More cutting edge
    8484 * Uses open source video drivers, etnaviv and the Linux Media Controller kernel API
     
    9090
    9191So, which one to choose?
    92  * New: This is typically recommended to ensure all the latest support. This is newer and thus more is being continuously flushed out. If other items in the project require a newer kernel such as the 4.20, use this method.
     92 * New: This is typically recommended to ensure all the latest support. This is newer and thus more is being continuously flushed out. If other items in the project require a newer kernel use this method.
    9393 * Legacy: This works well but new innovations are not happening here. This can be used if the project doesn't require any new features in a newer kernel, and the 3.14 kernel works fine for application.
