since booting the prior kernel solved my boot-up error messages... spent a few minutes updating to the latest kernel

Code: [Select]
sean@hpG6 ~ $ uname -a
Linux hpG6 4.6.0-040600rc5-generic #201604242031 SMP Mon Apr 25 00:34:15 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


no error messages... thus far no troubles...

Yup, that's basically it - just a little long-winded and contrived.  ;D

just rolled the Toshiba Qosmio over to:

Code: [Select]
spence@qosmio ~ $ uname -a
Linux qosmio 4.6.0-999-generic #201605112201 SMP Thu May 12 02:04:17 UTC 2016 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

after hunting down some photos I have backed up here... love this old lappie...

went ahead and moved the Compaq to latest kernel as well... this seems to be a backup & triage weekend


Code: [Select]
uname -a
Linux Presario-M2000-PX392UA-ABA 4.6.0-999-generic #201605132200 SMP Sat May 14 02:17:13 UTC 2016 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

recollect reading somewhere that the latest kernel had some AMD specific upgrades... so:
Code: [Select]
spence@hpg6 ~ $ uname -a
Linux hpg6 4.8.0-999-generic #201610022245 SMP Mon Oct 3 02:47:24 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
now to trackdown laptop trackpad controls... urgh  >:(

Yesterday's update to  4.13.0 -xxx didn't go well... so I hiked back to this thread to remind myself how to config a newer kernel.  I cleared out some old kernels and bumped up to 4.14.0-041400-generic #201711122031, next time I reinstall, I need to make a bigger /boot partition #smdh...

Given the Spectre/Meltdown schadenfreude, one wonders if its not wise to move on up to a kernel compiled this year as opposed to one compiled back in November?

What makes you think the 4.13 kernel from the HWE was compiled in November .. if it were it'd be missing the Meltdown patches (which it isn't).

Guess I always thought the string of numbers at the end carried the date... 4.14.0-041400-generic #201711122031

and all the posted dates for the 4.13.xxx from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/are from October and November...

Or is that just when those kernels were first available and futher updates have been applied? :-\

If you'd stuck to the default kernel you'd now be on 4.13.0-26 which has JUST been released.

Yup, that looks like the patched kernel from the HWE :)
(standard in PM8 and PM8R)

The problem with none default kernels is I can't guarantee they've been patched or not (or will receive ANY updates) .. the default is a known quantity.

I guess I'm not too terribly concerned... knowing that I am in your hardworking and diligent hands PCNetSpec...

I also discovered this whilst poking around trying to dump the other kernels, I found inside Synaptic Package Manager:...

Code: [Select]
Using Processor microcode firmware for Intel CPUs from intel microcode (open source)

is NOT selected...
