In Topic: Ubuntu corrupted BIOS?

27 December 2017 - 09:14 PM

Jeff, Charles,

 

I appreciate your help, thank you. My kernel is 4.10.0-42 generic, because I have come to the conclusion that 4.13 is not a good choice at the moment. All Lenovo users should wait a little bit. A lot of smart guys are working on this.

 

Personally speaking my BIOS is locked. Absolutely nothing works. I realized this a few months ago. Nothing worked so far and I think it is not only a matter of Ubuntu 17.10, there are some more cases. The good news is: My Bodhi system is working and I am updating more conservative than before.

Smooth updates, by the way. My system simply works for a long time. Thanks!

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).
