Switching Arch Linux Kernel to LTS

The server has been acting strange and randomly freezing not allowing ssh or the ability to switch to different screens.  I checked all logs, and no evidence of what the issue could be.  After doing some research, people were saying the the LTS kernel offered a little more stability for their servers, so I gave it a shot and it seemed to work perfectly.  I haven’t experienced a freeze since the switch.  The process was easy, but you just have to make sure that you fix grub as well, or you’ll be booting a live stick to fix that.

pacman -S linux-lts linux-headers-lts
pacman -R linux linux-headers
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
