Kernel 4.4.0-38 new issues
« on: September 20, 2016, 01:15:31 pm »
This is more of a cautionary post than anything, you may or may not have issues... My Lubuntu machine running very similar software to my Peppermint 7 machine decided to have kernel issues today... Everything was working the day earlier, except for today when I had an available kernel upgrade to 4.4.0-38 which introduced instability of my system causing a kernel panic. I was unable to REISUB and was forced to hard reboot (by pushing the power button down until the machine shut-down). After a couple of hard reboots, I was able to access the system, finally, but only to see that I was now having a mild kernel panic (i.e not one that is crashing my system). I upgraded to the latest kernel (which is currently 4.7.0) and did a regular reboot... Everything worked fine and applications behaved as normal, hopefully this prevents anyone from having possible issues...  :)

P.S: This is a very important update though, it seems to only effect this exact kernel update. Read more at: Softpedia.

I have just encountered the same issue for 4.4.0-42 kernel.
REISUB done nothing and forced to hard reboot.
Reverted to a previous kernel.
