Re: [SOLVED] Spectre Maeltdown - Kernels issue

on further comparison and testing, the 4.18.7-antix.1-amd64-smp kernel seems to run cooler and subjectively easier on the T430, and Not-Vulnerable according to the spectre-meldown-checker . So, I'll keep these two, the 4.18.7-antix.1 & the 4.9.126-antix.1 64-bit kernels which are both Not-Vulnerable...

Re: Which kernel should I use ?

Just a note: Had a similar, temporary problem with not booting to my choice of kernel. I had similar setup to the entries above, including the following: GRUB_DEFAULT=4 GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true and for some reason, I changed: GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=false after which, grub always booted the first entry.
