Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.12.8!

Posted Today at 03:45 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.12.0-12-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest stable kernel 4.12.8 released 170816.

What’s new in Linux kernel 4.12?

Install kernel 4.12.0-12-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) and Debian Stretch (Debian 9).

A sequel to my topic, "onboard video card dying, or something else?", where Shadow_7 posted:

Annotations while trying to eventually get suspension and/or hibernation to work

Posted 08-16-2017 at 04:33 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 08-16-2017 at 05:18 PM by the dsc

I've never used this kind of thing, decided to give a try, as it seemed safe for all I was reading.

"pm-suspend-hybrid" did work, but after resuming, the CPU fan was reset to full speed all the time, as if the BIOS was set to have "smart fan control" disabled.

It may be also partly because some of the power management options (whatever is its name) are set to "S3" which I recall reading isn't really appropriate for suspension (which keeps...
