When I install liquorix kernels from the Popular Apps tab, it's supposed to give me the latest from Test Repo, but I get 4.8. When I go to the actual Test Repo tab in MXPI, it tells me latest liquorix is 4.12. If I install from that Test Repo section, I get the correct package.
yep, apparently the metapackage I was using for the "latest" liquourix kernel is no longer being updated. Its a major hassle to keep up with rapidly changing kernel updates without a metapackage for mxpi to point to.

Suggestions for renaming the entry?


I note that the 4.8 version is actually in Stable Repo.

Could that be confusing the MXPI?

There are metapackages in Test Repo for headers and image. Are those the ones no longer being updated?

We now have updated up to 4.13-2, which is based on the vanilla kernel 4.13.8rc release, in the test repository. At the same time, we are removing all the 4.12 kernel versions except for the last one we built. I had to patch ndiswrapper to get its dkms package to build on this kernel, so that update is also in the test repo. The fglrx-driver, ndvidia-driver, and broadcom-sta-dkms packages currently in the test repo were able to build on it, but the only hardware I can test myself is the nvidia driver. Virtual Box 5.2.0 also did not have any trouble with building its modules.

This is good news and very exciting for me. I am still trouble shooting some random reboots on my Ryzen system (every 2-8 days I come down to see a log in screen). I was thinking update the BIOS again, and try a later kernel.

So, I checked the metapackage installer, and I also saw the 4.8 as the latest liquorix, and thought it a dead end. I also run AntiX beta with the 4.10 kernel, and had a few unexpected reboots.

I am glad to see the 4.12 and 4.13 available. I have seen some pages on the internet that suggest >4.12 is more stable for Ryzen.
Will there be any problems with the Nvidia driver with these kernels? (Video card listed in the sig line)

entropyfoe - have you tried the 4.13-4 antiX kernel (x64 only)?

All I know is that it works on my Optimus system with the 375.82 driver and the kernel~4.13.0-7.2-liquorix-amd64 x86_64:

Code: Select all

Well, my dell precision's mobile broadband adapter really likes this one (4.13.0-7.2-liquorix-amd64). I've never seen it's download speed this lickity-split quick before.

edit: I get 17.7MB down & 4.26MB up. reference google speed test - mike

That's cause all the neighbors hogging the bandwidth are, ummm, out of commission?

ouch
It's raining here today and normally, I'd throw a couple sticks in the fireplace but most people are still a tad hypersensitive to chimney smoke... maybe next weekend :p

What is the easiest way to get that? That sounds promising.
Is there a metapackage installer?
Or do I enable test repos and use synaptic?

I hear that 4.14 will be a LTS kernel, so that will be a good one for antiX and MX.
For the Ryzen CPUs, there still lots of bug fixes and drivers (maybe for the new MB sound chipsets for example) getting into the kernel, hopefully some microcode that increases stability. It is strange, most of these reboots happen while idling, with little load. I also have a newer BIOS available for the MB, including one that says "stability improvements".

Stevo, thanks for that data point. I read some of the earlier kernels had some problems with some nvidia drivers or cards.
