What? I thought that was explicitly stated in Dolphin's notice. That was the point of my downloading the new kernel.



Not aimed at you, but some people still seem confused about that.

Re: which 4.9 kernel is the patched one for MX 16? [solved]

Interestingly, the latest Liquorix kernel mentions retpoline, but exactly how much hardening this means is beyond me: * enable retpoline per configuration refresh From Wikipedia: On January 4, 2018, Google detailed a new technique on their security blog called "Retpoline" (return trampolin...

Re: gqrx-sdr & gnuradio

First attempts at a gnuradio backport failed fairly quick, but I tracked it down to a patch that Debian added to build against Buster's gcc-7. Disabling the patch has let me get at least halfway through the lengthy build so far on our gcc-6.

Re: which 4.9 kernel is the patched one for MX 16? [solved]

Synaptic can do almost anything most things that the package installer can, but it can also get you in trouble, since it will show all possible kernel choices, such as the 32-bit kernels on 64-bit, real-time kernels, grsecurity, etc. There is much discussion going on about if kernels before 4.14-12 ...

Notably, this fixes a scrolling bug that annoyed an reviewer who otherwise praised MX liberally. Other changes/fixes: ● Now, there is a side-pane mode, which can be activated by its shortcut/menu-...

Re: Near death experience

I think he meant go to advanced options for boot,
pick the kernel option you wish to boot,
Hit "E" to edit that entry,
add a "3" to the line that has "quiet" on it,
then boot.
