We have now added the last release of the Liquorix 4.20 kernel series, 4.20-15, which is based on the 4.20.16 vanilla kernel release.

We've also added the new 5.0.0-1 Liquorix kernel. This version switches back to p-state power saving for modern Intel CPUs, which is the same that the stock MX and Debian kernels use. Like with those, it's also possible to start with a boot flag to disable p-state and use cpufreq instead.

Is there an MX 18 Repository: The linux-liquorix kernel thread? If so, would you please reply with the link? If not, I'll just keep monitoring this thread. Thank you.

Updating to 5.0-6, based on 5.0.7 kernel, in the test repo.
I'm also sending the Nvidia 340xx legacy drivers to the test repo which are patched to build on 5.0 kernels.

We've now added the 5.1-1 (based on the 5.1.6 vanilla) Liquorix kernel, as well as removed all but the last 5.0 packages.

I'm thinking of stopping these builds for the MX 15/16 Jessie base, considering that I think more modern machines that get benefits from this kernel should be using MX 18 and the upcoming MX 19. Plus, if I use the OBS to do the builds for me in the cloud, they won't work on a Jessie base.

Any objections?
