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.


I havent had any kernel issues here (that I am aware of!) so its been a while, but once upon a time Linux users were kind of expected to compile their own kernels to get the most out of their systems. Back in the days when RAM was $50 per Mb. NB: Mb.
There is a config script that is awesome in that it allows you to configure the kernel to your system with alot of precision. With google as your brain, it would be a true learning adventure.

I'll probably be doing it again the next time I need to take the system apart - as I need to disconnect the other drives to keep grub's filthy mitts off them. I really do hate grub.....

Just installed kernel 4.11 on my laptop which is giving "new life" to my wifi. I can only recommend to install that kernel as it has brought new speed to the device.

On my Ubuntu-box I've installed kernel 4.10.0.21 and that kernel is just fast. The device runs Artful Aardvark a.k.a Ubuntu 17.10. I'm considering to install Linux 4.11 on that box too but for now it's really stable so why take the chance?
Better to have stability than live dangerously close to re-install.

Now that grsecurity has closed it's doors I'm using Alpine's linux-hardened kernel:
Code: Select all
empty@alpine:~ $ cat /proc/version                                                                 
Linux version 4.9.26-0-hardened (buildozer@build-edge-x86_64) (gcc version 6.3.0 (Alpine 6.3.0) ) #1-Alpine SMP Thu May 4 15:12:03 GMT 2017

Does anybody know if Debian has a KSPP-enabled kernel version yet?

It would be a nice addition now that stretch binaries are compiled as fully PIE :cool:

Meanwhile in Arch, Daniel Micay is tracking the 4.11 series and seems to be updating it several times a day — what a guy! :cool:
Code: Select all
empty@Xanadu:~ $ cat /proc/version
Linux version 4.11.0-1-hardened (builduser@strcat) (gcc version 6.3.1 20170306 (GCC) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat May 6 13:15:01 EDT 2017

Right now.
Code: Select all
Linux XXXX 4.9.0-2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.18-1 (2017-03-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux

My powerpc will run 4.9.0-3 as soon as I bother to reboot it, and my oldest arm will run Wheezy with 3.2 or something.
