I am using OpenBSD-current and the 6.1-beta kernel version was only introduced this weekend.

If you are also using -current and upgrading from snapshots then you may have to download the new bsd.rd (ramdisk kernel) directly from your mirror and boot from that to perform the upgrade — my 6.0-series bsd.rd kept looking for the 60 sets and wouldn't perform the upgrade.

I've just run apt-get update/upgrade and a new kernel version seems to have been installed (Jessie stable)
Code: Select all
user@debian:~$ uname -a
Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.39-1+deb8u2 (2017-03-07) x86_64 GNU/Linux

But the changelog points to a dead web page. And I can't find any news about the update.

I'm assuming all is OK, but it would be nice if someone else might confirm that.

I dont know what exactlly did i change in my computer, cos last time i tried 4.4.52 the feeling was regular. I think it might be I changed now to opengl 2 instead 3 in kde settings, as i figured it out my GPU doesnt support opengl 3. Who knows!! :shock:, but now it rocks


My extensa 5230 is going back to 4.4.39, kernel 4.4.52 was not bad for a while, but the feeling is still kind of unnatural, im stucked in this kernel. :? I think my computer will die with it, I also tried last 4.10.1 and there's no way...:shock: i cant improve the feeling of this kernel with any other one, damm!

In Devuan, from the Devuan backports...
Code: Select all
4.9.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.13-1~bpo8+1 (2017-02-27) x86_64 GNU/Linux

The drive and USB I/O scheduling really sucked in 3.16.x (see system specs in sig), I have five drives and am constantly loading USB sticks with TV shows for an old DVD player that has a USB port. I'm having much better parallel I/O ops with the 4.9.x series. I wanted to stay 'stock' but sometimes you just gotta go with what works best. I only enable the backports for kernel updates or cherry pick otherwise not available apps, I stick to stable as much as possible.

Info for n00bs, linux-image-amd64 is the complete new kernel install handling meta package you want, it does everything required to successfully update the kernel and leave your system in a bootable state.

You should add a qualifier to your recommendation. Assume a beginner doesn't know anything about our technical jibber-jabber; they might try and install your amd64 package on their 32-bit install.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.6, Pale Moon 27.3.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-9, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.3, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6

"Jibber jabber"? What part of my post was not clear to you? It was made clear where I installed the kernel from and to. The package name itself has "amd64" in it, if they don't know what that means, then they shouldn't be using Linux, or computers for that matter. Maybe you are attacking me just because I'm using Devuan, this is a KERNEL thread, I'm allowed to mention what distro I'm using. Have a nice day. :roll:

4.9 custom compiled from source from the fine folks over at kernel.org. Still don't know a millionth of what da heck I'm doing w the kernel but enough to compile one of the suckers that runs pretty good on Debian Jessie.

At least nothing has caught on fire in the last couple months, 4.8bpo as backup.

I never compiled a kernel, I go to ubuntu's ftp and install them (dpkg -i *.deb :) ), they work well in my experience, and i've installed around 20 or 30 differents versions.
Ive tested several versions, and i cant improve 4.4.39 for my AcerExtensa 5230. So i gave it up, and stay in this version kernel until computer dies.

At the moment I'm using a Liquorix 4.9.0-12.1 amd64 on a Stretch desktop. It works well.

For older computers , i mean 10+ years -- 3.16 i find very strong. Been usng 3.16 since a few years, very rarely remember to have stalled by the kernel.
I'm still on 3.16 series 8) satisfied.
If it ain't broke, tweak it at least

Just installed Linux kernel 4.11 RC6 on my Ubuntu box - The kernel is fast on my core i7 3.4 GHz system with 16 GB RAM.

Glad I took the chance to try it out.
