Kernel Update today

Keep an eye open. There is a kernel update out there. I didn’t run it yet as I am waiting for the broadcom packages to catch up.

Report your experiences though…:wink:

All ok here sofar, including the new NVidia driver :wink: Had to manually
add nomodeset to the boot options.

I do note that sensors is now working without having to add the other
grub option of “acpi_enforce_resources=lax”, but may have missed that
from an earlier kernel release…

No problems here.

It is working fine here. However, I have not yet tried to update my laptop (with a broadcom wifi card).

All is well here after the update.

So far, so good with a smooth upgrade.

No problems at all.

I updated my laptop.

It still boots, and wifi still works, even though the broadcom package has not yet updated.

As it should, if you do a modinfo on the driver it will be sitting in an directory called /lib/modules/{kernel-flavor}/weak-updates…

Thanks. I assumed it should.

Back at an earlier time, when I was compiling drivers locally (for a different computer and different network card), a kernel update often broke WiFi until I recompiled. But I had assumed that the use of a driver from the repos, together with the dependency checks, would prevent that problem. And if it didn’t, I could fall back on a wired connection until the driver did update.

No problems either

Both desktops here ok after update.

Mine booted up saying,

“All your bases are belong to Linus!”

No problems installing these kernel updates ( x86_64) on standard 11.4 KDE or Gnome systems.

No problem so far with desktop (x86_64) and default (i686) on 8 machines (including an iMac and RAID1 fileserver).

Didn’t notice any problems :slight_smile:

Best regards,

It is working without any hitch
