The new 4.17-10 (based on 4.17.14) release is now in the test repo. This now has a workaround for the MuQSS scheduler bug that was causing it to use excess CPU cycles, so should improve the battery life somewhat. CPU use at idle should now approach that of the Debian kernel.

September 28, 2018: I updated to kernel 4.18.0-10.x-liquorix-amd64 and computer would not open display. By using 4.18.0-9..2-liquorix-amd64 I could boot up normally. Is this a known bug? Can/will it be fixed soon? Thanks.

It was also mentioned on the Debian forum with the kernel from the Liquorix repo, but that user said that -10.2 "just started working". We now have 4.18-11 in the test repo; can you install that and see if that helps?

I also see that there's now a 4.18-12, let me see if your issue is known on the Liquorix forums..nope, no reports there.

Edit: Apparently the new 4.18-12 (4.18.0-10.2) reverts the kernel's 4.18.11~rc patches, which broke the nvidia drm driver. I'm building this new version now, but it may take a few hours to make it up into the repos. I also loaded it into the OBS, which can usually build them and get them into its repo faster: https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... uorix-4.18

Today I updated the computer and < Linux mxlinux 4.18.0-10.2-liquorix-amd64 > was installed. This works perfectly. This is the first time I have experienced being unable to boot normally from a new Liquorix kernel version. I'm glad I always retain the previous kernel. At first I was quite worried (as I had not backed up my files for several days) but now that everything is back to normal I can breathe a sigh of relief. And I have just backed up all of my files! Thanks for all the help.

Now updated to 4.18-13 (4.18.0-11.1) in the test repo, apparently with the nouveau drm problems worked out of the 4.18.11 base kernel release.

We're now up to 4.18-21, which is based on the 4.18.17 kernel source.

We're now up to 4.18-26, which disables that unfortunate STIPB mitigation which affected performance for many operations with hyperthreading.
