Code: Select all
$ uname -a
OpenBSD OpenBSD.lan 6.0 GENERIC.MP#0 amd64

dmesg(8) gives a little more information:
Code: Select all
OpenBSD 6.0-current (GENERIC.MP) #0: Sun Oct 16 18:57:06 MDT 2016

I love the smell of a fresh kernel :)

Oh my, I'm glad I read this news about 4.8

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/10/05 ... _linux_48/

I'll just skipped to 4.9 or 5.0 when it comes or stay back on 3.16, 4.7

First of all, 4.8.1. was released immediately thereafter effectively removing "buggy crap". It is now at 4.8.3 and likely much more stable.

Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

Using BUG_ON() as an assert() is _never_ acceptable

commit 21f54ddae449f4bdd9f1498124901d67202243d9 upstream.

That just generally kills the machine, and makes debugging only much
harder, since the traces may long be gone.

Debugging by assert() is a disease. Don't do it. If you can continue,
you're much better off doing so with a live machine where you have a
much higher chance that the report actually makes it to the system logs,
rather than result in a machine that is just completely dead.

The only valid situation for BUG_ON() is when continuing is not an
option, because there is massive corruption. But if you are just
verifying that something is true, you warn about your broken assumptions
(preferably just once), and limp on.

Second, the next kernel after 4.9 is 4.10.

At the moment:

Code: Select all
$ uname -r
4.7.7-200.fc24.x86_64


Of course, this computer is running Fedora 24...it's time to put Debian stable back on this computer and get back to the good old kernals!

Cureently running this thing that I backported yesterday:
Code: Select all
4.8.0-2.1-liquorix-amd64 #1 ZEN SMP PREEMPT liquorix 4.8-2 (2016-10-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux


It's also in the same OBS repo that I backported codelite in a while back, if anyone else wants to give it a spin:

Use "uname -a" to get the full kernel information.

OK, I see. :?

I'm redoing the Liquorix Kernel right now in the OBS because I added the patch to fix the Cow problem (CVE-2016-5195), so it'll take an hour or two. We're also going to have to add it to any unmaintained backports kernel, such as the 4.2 one in MX 15 x64.

The R7 250 chip/fan racing is not as bad. Had a look in hardinfo as well, far less kernel module bloat, this may be a keeper (in PCLOS), my Devuan and Ubuntu 14.04 Xfce are another story.

I found out why the video card fan idles slightly faster in newer kernels compared to older kernels...found this in boot.log/dmesg...
Code: Select all
[    1.794901] [drm] Loading oland Microcode
[    1.795071] [drm] Internal thermal controller with fan control

So the video card chip isn't racing at all, it's just the cooling fan got a little idle speed bump. Was wondering why the Radeon temperature is slightly lower at idle than older kernels. Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. FYI, after they system is up for a little while, the fan settles down somewhat.
