Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel - 4.9!

Posted 12-17-2016 at 09:42 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.9.0-11-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest stable kernel 4.9 released 161211.

What’s new in Linux kernel 4.9?

Install kernel 4.9.0-11-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.6) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9)....

GND - GND
SCK - Pin 13
SO - Pin 12
SI - Pin 11

It took me a while to find this, so I thought I would post it. After searching through various sources, I finally took the time to read all of the hundred or so lines you get from 'apropos network'.

A terminal command to activate or deactive networking is

Code:
nmcli networking on
nmcli networking off
Under Ubuntu I usually depend on a networking control icon that appears on the tool bar of the indicator applet, but sometimes the icon is missing. I...

It's not snowing here in Florida but in Illinois it's a mess.

Posted 12-11-2016 at 10:21 AM by onebuck

Hi,

I am wintering in Florida and remodeling our new winter home. Hiring as much as possible since I bought here to vacation not do daily work on a house. Labor not as cheap as I was told. Finding reputable contractors is tough.

My wife has gone mad purchasing new furniture. I spend on the necessary things like a new 65" Smart 4K Ultra-HD HDTV for the living room. I just bought a 50" Smart 4K Ultra-Hd HDTV for the Florida room for guests and when the wife doesn't...
