kernel 4.14.2 stable is out, fixes the bcache corruption bug.
it is not on antix repo yet.
Intel Dual core E5400, cache 2MB, 3145MHz, 8GB RAM
Mesa DRI Intel G41, RTL8169 PCI Gigabit, Intel NM10/ICH7HD Audio

That's fine as long as there is no earlier 4.14.x kernel in the repo. 'Urgent data corruption issue' destroys filesystems in Linux 4.14.

many users don't know how to use bcache, as long as u don't use bcache, it will be fine.
have been using kernel 4.14.1 for the last few days, so far so good, very stable and no gitch(es) yet.
Intel Dual core E5400, cache 2MB, 3145MHz, 8GB RAM
Mesa DRI Intel G41, RTL8169 PCI Gigabit, Intel NM10/ICH7HD Audio

According to that article, they were supposed to fix it in 4.14.1 but I guess they didn't.

Here is the commit with the fix.

If it is not already our 4.14.1 (or whatever), it is a trivial one-line change. If our 4.14.1 has this fix then we should be good bcache-wise.

That was added to 4.14.2 not 4.14.1 *sigh*

Building new kernels as I type.

anticapitalista,

Thank You for your continued efforts...
Is anyone using this newer kernel with a Ryzen Processor? Does it make any changes - Faster boot, Slower boot?
