All Hail Linux 4.11
« on: August 06, 2017, 12:46:54 am »
As much as I've loved running Linux 4.10 kernel series, it reached EOL toward the end of May, 2017:  https://goo.gl/3VFT99

"End of life" is a bit misleading where the Ubuntu HWE is concerned .. there will still be security updates for the 4.10 series until they roll us onto 4.11 automagically as a matter of course ;)

True !

Canonical kinda does their own thing.  EOL for the rest of Linux kernel world doesn't necessarily mean EOL in Ubuland.

I'm file-raping these from the Canonical Kernel Team LP repo, so it's a pretty good indication of which direction they're headed.

Here's the addy, if anyone is interested:  https://goo.gl/wEOw2P

As always, pay attention to the warning in the 'PPA description'  ;)

Interesting proggy, but no, I haven't tried it.  Looks very pretty !

I'm as lazy as the next person.  In Peppermint, I pick n' choose the binaries in Synaptic, and let it do it's thing.

I used to manually purge kernels in Peppermint, but I've found that 'Update Manager' does a good job of it.

I was gonna say, I've been downloading a lot of kernel updates lately for something that's EOL.  ;)

LoL !  Some people are still running XP -- our Union Hall, for instance. 

I just spent a week clearing out the cruft -- 4 days to get rid of all the AVG remnants -- shiz going back to 2004 -- 89% fragmented HDD.

My sec/treas is happy now - "No more watching the spinning hourglass for 5 minutes, when I open the accounting program."

Hey, ignorance is bliss, you know ?  Ignore reality, if you will.  Sooner or later, you'll be assimilated.   :)

XP hasn't had a security update since 2013.  I downloaded a security update for the Linux kernel two days ago.  So, there's no real parallel there.

I use the kernel that comes with the OS.  With an OS that was released last year, I expect security.  If it's a major issue, Ubuntu will release something else with an upgrade path.  That's how they roll.  They're not Microsoft or Google.  :P

In that case, that's probably what I'm running.  Like I said, Ubuntu has us covered.

I don't think it should be yet .. unless you're on the hwe-16.04-edge track ???

[EDIT]

Oh you mean in the View > Linux kernels section.

Your call but I wouldn't install it from there .. if there are any security issues and they release a new kernel it won't get automatically updated. Personally I'd wait for the HWE to move you to 4.11 automagically.

Or at least put yourself on the hwe-16.04-edge track
