Debian stable Buster kernel version

Postby Chrisdb » 2019-01-27 11:21

Hello guys,

I've been looking around, but can't seem to find a clear answer. Or maybe it's not official yet. I don't know.

Can anyone tell me what the kernel version of the following stable release (Buster) will be?

Thx

^ This.

The full freeze starts on 2019-03-12[1], whichever kernel version is dependent on the linux-image-$architecture metapackage at that time will become the stable release kernel.

My bet is on v5.0 but this is just a guess.

Thx for the answer :D
So basically I should keep an eye on the following(for 64 bit):
https://packages.debian.org/buster/linux-image-amd64

Is this correct?

I thought that the latest LTS kernel at freeze time is what they go for, since security updates are much easier, being in the source releases instead of having the Debian developers have to manually backport the fixes.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.14, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.13

Ok so I guess version 4.19 will be shipped with Buster then as 5.0 is not LTS?

Yes, probably, though there are a lot of reports that the 4.19 kernel is buggy.

That's not really reassuring...
