Kernel 5 is out!

Postby viking60 » 22 Mar 2019, 13:28

Well after kernel 4.xxx finally the Linux Kernel has reached no.5!
....
and there is nothing special about it Linus just ran out of finger and toes when counting kernel numbers :-D
I have installed it.
That is a good thing with Manjaro I can pick and chose from the kernels I need via the Manjaro Settings Manager:

Anyway the kernel has lots of new drivers for new hardware and some old ones are gone - like ISDN drivers.

I have installed it on my fairly old box and I am praying that it will boot :pray: so hang in there for the exciting news

Nothing to it - my nice Xfce desktop is still there :jackpot
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.
