In Topic: Kernel update

02 September 2017 - 06:28 AM

Kernel questions will always cause some discussions. To make it clear: I am not the one who can decide the subject. In my experience "linux-generic-hwe-16.04" installed via Synaptic works fine and gets regular updates (security fixes and some backported stuff here and then). Right now its 4.10.0.33.35.

 

"Linux-generic-hwe-16.04-edge" would have installed the 4.11-series. Quite new hardware might be supported better. 

 

As Jeff has pointed out there is no desperate need for desktop users to change a working Kernel immediately if something new is offered. Other things enhance security. To all whom it may concern: Things like WebkitGTK+ should be more frequently updated (at least 2.16.6), or libsoup (should be 2.58.2).

I hope that everything will be ok then. :)

I have had a look at uname -r and synaptic, 4.10.0-32 generic is the latest HWE-kernel. Due to security updates and other fixes it might me worth to install it. 

All the best!
