OK, I think I see, it was because I enabled the test repos to see the newer kernels, and thse updates are coming in from there for other packages I have installed like audacity, must be a new version.

So I should just take the one upgrade (the kernel antiX 4.13 64 bit), then install the associated headers, reboot.

Do I have to update-grub to have it show?

It should automatically upgrade-grub, but no harm in doing it after installing the kernel and headers.

So I enabled the test repos, and selected that 4.13, and told it to install.

But I am scared to commit to that because it says 152 packages will be held back and not upgraded one new package will be installed.



So why are 152 packaged held back?


After I install the linux image, then according to the manual, I install the corresponding headers?
Then reboot, maybe update grub?

Also in antiX, the package installer does not show these newer kernels.
That would be more automated? But does not offer the options.
If you are talking about the 4.13 Liquorix kernel, the antiX package installer doesn't have an entry for the Liquorix kernels in the MX 17 repo. As to why you saw 152 packages held back, that's because we have a lot of possible upgrades in the test repo you activated, but you just chose to install the kernel and headers packages. So everything else was held back. That is expected behavior. Depending on your hardware, you may have to upgrade certain drivers from the test repo for them to build on the newer kernel. I believe the only one necessary on a Stretch base is the new ndiswrapper build.

I have found that I no longer have to boot with systemd to get my laptop to come back from hibernation with this 4.13 kernel. That is suspend2disk, not suspend2ram. Now with sysvinit I get a black console screen that shows the percentage of RAM being written to or from the disk on suspend or resume. It's not beautiful, but preferable to what I get when using systemd, which is just a blip to a black screen, and then the GUI comes back up, but frozen for however long it takes to write the RAM to disk and then turn off. But I messed around with trying to get hibernation in the past, and this may not be default behavior.

We now have the 4.13-3 version in the test repo, which results in the 4.13.0-9.1-liquorix-amd64 result for the kernel version on my 64-bit install. It merges in the 4.13.9 and 4.13.10~rc vanilla kernel changes.

Now up to 4.13-5, which is based on the standard 4.13.11 kernel.

We now have 4.14-4 (4.14.0-3.1) in the test repository. Some proprietary drivers will need to be pulled in from the test repo to build against this kernel. If you have an Optimus system, it may not work after the upgrade, so hold off on this kernel unless you want to test it.
