Debian releases 5.2.6 kernel in Sid

Postby stevepusser » 2019-08-08 00:44

I backported them last night for the MX 17 and 19 test repos, and then am trying to have the OBS build them for Buster now:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... x-libc-dev

but it's huffin' and puffin'. I remember some people here asking how long it would before Debian would update the kernel upstream.

It needed over 55 GB of free space to build the 64-bit kernels and arch-independent packages on my laptop, a little less for the binary-only i386 packages. It's currently a trivial backport for Buster, but needs some tweaking as usual for a Stretch base.

Edit: At least the 64-bit succeeded on the OBS, which should satisfy the majority that need a newer kernel.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Calibre 3.48.0, QMPlay2 19.09.03, wine-staging 4.16, Telegram-desktop 1.8.8, Pale Moon 28.7.1, Waterfox 56.2.14

The metapackage still depends on 4.19 and the 5.2 version is unsigned, sadly.

I wonder why it's taking so long for sid to bump the kernel version :?

They will need to bump nvidia-driver too as the current version in sid wont build against any 5.x kernel.

The nvidia-driver in experimental works for 5.2 so it should be in sid soon. Or be a bit wild and install it from experimental. Money back if it breaks something. :)

Not much gets done in Europe in August either, or so I've gathered. Everyone's on vacation.

I've got a patched version of 418.74 in the MX 17 test repo that builds and works on the 5.2 kernel:

Code: Select all
 uname -a
Linux mx 5.2.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.2.6-1~mx17+1 (2019-08-06) x86_64 GNU/Linux

optirun inxi -G
Graphics:  Device-1: Intel UHD Graphics 630 driver: i915 v: kernel
           Device-2: NVIDIA GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile] driver: nvidia v: 418.74
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.19.2 driver: intel resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
           OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 418.74


The patch is from the AUR, and is very short.

Debian Sid had a patched version of the legacy 390xx drivers last time I looked, but they wouldn't build any 32-bit packages, which made them rather crippled if you ever wanted to run a 32-bit game on 64-bit...ahh, they fixed that with an updated 390.129 release. I can backport that. https://packages.debian.org/sid/nvidia- ... 0xx-driver

So kernel 5.2.6-1 is available in Sid, but I haven't installed it yet.

And now Sid has 5.2.7, after months with no kernel updates. Backporting that tonight for MX.

So those developers aren't on vacation right now!

Tried 5.2 with no luck, becuase of the Nvidia-drivers, I guess. Fell back to 4.19.

Oh, yeah, I used a patch from Parrot OS to fix the build on 5.1 and 5.2 kernels for MX...

Code: Select all
broadcom-sta (6.30.223.271-10mx19+1) mx; urgency=medium

  * Rebuild for MX Linux.
  * Import 15-fix_5.1_kernel_build.patch from Parrot to fix 5.1 kernel
    builds.

But Debian will probably update it in Sid pretty soon. But a Sid tester should file a bug report against it if they haven't yet.

Anybody besides me having sound issues in this new sid kenrel? Sounds like recordings made in a bathroom that cuts out constantly. Some 5.1 liquorix kernels did the same.

No problems here with siduction using siduction kernel in 2 systems.
