This is how I read all of that.

"new Pentium-class CPUs" to mean the latest versions of products.

"first Pentium SKUs to feature Hyper-Threading", meaning these same new products.

"Kaby Lake, Intel is changing up " Only those processors based the Kaby Lake die/chip size.
"

"Kaby lake hyper-threading has now been put in pentium and celeron class cpus." Meaning only those that are being manufactured today. They can't add in HT to older Pentiums.

Specifically, when using firefox, there was a noticeable delay switching tabs and also when doing 2-finger scrolling on the touchpad I would do the action, wait, and then see the screen move.


during the Ubuntu install I had seen a warning: possible missing firmware for module i915, which I traced to the following firmware package:

kbl_dmc_ver1_01

Which seems to have something to do with graphics?, so I installed it and it SEEMS to have fixed both these problems.

But this was a qualitative problem so I could be kidding myself... especially since I did not believe that kbl could relate to an old celeron CPUs.

So... the question is:

Would installing kbl_dmc_ver1_01 on my machine affect those issues? How?

Many thanks in advance for any insights.

Regards....

Andrew.

you just have to compile your kernel from vanilla, and include i915. Once done you can start it with vmlinuz and initrd.gz that you created.

I had the same issue on a new pc, and it is important to compile yourself your linux kernel, otherwise nothing will work by default. That's linux, you have to get used to gcc.

Or get used to your newest machine being 6 years old. Arguably 6 months old depending on which distro you use. Outside of quirky wireless drivers and firmware I really haven't needed to gcc much in the past 5-ish years. But I'm not exactly rolling in new hardware these days.

I have too an acer, which is brand new, 2 months ago.

Compiling a kernel from vanilla is a good way to learn a bit.

you have to make sure that the right modules are into your compiled kernel, with the menu config during kernel compiling.

ath9k_hw 404428 2 ath9k,ath9k_common
ath 16335 3 ath9k_hw,ath9k,ath9k_common
Once done, check your initrd.gz with lsinitramfs so that you know which modules are loaded in


those modules are a minimum to have into your kernel
