Really? I agree that I haven't had issue with the huge kernel, but I've never had issues with building initrds. If I use the mkinitrd_command_generator.sh script included with Slackware, it's always led to me an initrd that boots the system correctly.

I really haven't used Generic since way back anyway before x64. Mostly I stick to Huge or a custom kernel based off of Huge.

For me the initrd has been hit or miss a few times pulling in the right module, but equally I've had it miss a few as well. For me Huge is KISS and a RonCo-ism (set it and forget it). Plus, I don't use LILO and I hate tinkering with a grub.cfg just to check it and make sure the initrd is included.

If 9p needs a module inside the kernel then build it in, otherwise... who knows.

You are talking about more than 7 years ago then, you can not call that relevant backing really.
Also, it is not the people in this thread who want to ditch the huge kernel, it is Pat. You might assume that Pat comes up with a foolproof way to use a generic kernel with initrd, otherwise he would not be considering it.
What's so hard about updating a grub or lilo configuration?

Hi,

Shouldn't /etc/lvm/lvmlocal.conf be considered /etc/lvm/lvmlocal.conf.new when upgrading lvm2 package? (I'm on 14.2).

Well, I'm hoping all options are considered and all possible options are available to us users.

Linux-4.4.17 arrives shortly ... only 68 patches but , include the overlay patch wanted by alien bob.

Responses should be made by Wed Aug 10 18:01:56 UTC 2016.
Anything received after that time might be too late.

Short info from developers:
Quote:
Solid fails to compile with flex 2.6.0 in C90 mode (which is enforced by KDECompilerSettings in ECM). This is due to a
bug in flex 2.6.0 which generates a C code with C++-style comments. The bug has been fixed in flex 2.6.1, but if your distro ships flex 2.6.0 you will need to patch CMakeLists.txt to append -std=c99 to CMAKE_C_FLAGS (unfortunatelly CFLAGS envvar is ignored by KDECompilerSettings).

Yes it's fixed with new version but for stable version, you can use the workaround from upstream
