4.12 running ok here, though for now I just used a 'make olddefconfig' against my 4.11 config and haven't investigated any of the fancy new features such as the new schedulers.

For anybody using 'dusk', I'm not going to be building any more 4.9 series kernels because Slackware's official kernels in -current are available and regularly updated. So from now on it's 4.4 and 4.12

True, although it was so convenient always see the current version of the kernel in slackpkg. Thank you!

Thanks for the 4.12.1 kernel!
It works with everything except VirtualBox. When trying to build the VB module it returns this error,

Just FYI.
Thanks, again.

I haven't used the dusk kernel builds, so forgive the ignorant question, but is the kernel source included? If so, it sounds like you can just follow those instructions to fix it.

Check out this forum thread.

It recommends this patch, which should be able to be applied in the base source directory (/tmp/SBo/virtualbox-kernel-$VERSION/) using:

Code:
patch -Np1 < vbox.patch

4.12.2 has also just been tagged in git, though it's not showing on kernel.org just yet.

Thanks. Sorry if this post is OT.

I'm building a new Ryzen system, and slackware-current is using 4.9.37 as of today. I hear that Ryzen should use 4.10+. Is there a way to modify my local mirror to insert one of these 4.12 kernels into the directories and rebuild the ISO? Will it just work? Or do I need to do more work?

It depends on the detail of "Ryzen should use 4.10+" (and possibly also on any other new/shiny/expensive stuff). If that means 'works well enough with 4.9 to do an install but needs to be upgraded to 4.10+ later to get fancy video and max performance', then there's your answer. If that means 'totally broken on 4.9', then you would need to replace not just the kernel packages under slackware64/, but also the installer's own kernel inside initrd.img. I'm not sure how much work that is. If NVMe is also in the mix, god knows. This stuff is outside my budgetary parameters, which leads to downward pressure on my attention span.

If it was me, I might do the install on another box, including a 4.12 kernel, then move the finished hd to the Ryzen box.
