It's kind of a big deal, because samsung specs have different timings for lcd panel, and it was designed for 1680x1050@60 but kernel sets 1024x768@75 (stretched, or cut on the sides)
That's standard resolution so it probably won't damage the display, even though it's possible with wrong timings.
I did mean LTS in general, not the 4.14 LTS specifically. In your case, it is likely that the problem won't be backported to the 4.14 LTS, but it is very possible the fix may not exist in the 4.19 kernel which is expected to be an LTS... although, this would depend on how they label patch (whenever it arrives) and whether they decide it is worth backporting into a stable release.

However, it should be mentioned that while there isn't a fix yet, there is a workaround that was suggested in the second message by Jani Nikula that seemed to work. They mentioned adding video=VGA-1:e to the command, which the OP replied that it does work, however, it keeps the VGA port enabled when not plugged in.

Maybe it works for the OP's case, but I already have "video=nouveaufb:VGA-1:1680x1050x24@60" that works fine on 4.14
So if I were to replace the command with 'e' I may as well replace it with 'nomodeset' or 'vesafb' (it'll do vesa standard res, not native res)

I succesfully built generic-smp-4.18.13-smp using the 2 wget commands above; the 3rd latest line didn't worked.

I shorted it to:

Code:
 RECIPES="IA32_SMP" ./build-all-kernels.sh
and that worked well.

Thanks !

4.19 on 7th RC, hopefully the last - and then maybe -current can jump to that since that kernel is slated as "LTS".

Well, I hope you are correct, but last week Greg K-H said,

Quote:
......it seems like we will be having a -rc8
just to be sure 4.19 is solid as well as not having to be in the middle
of a merge window during a conference week.....
The entire message is quoted in post #906, above.

We will find out sometime over the next several hours.

Hi all,

As mentioned last week, here's a -rc8 release as it seems needed.

There were a lot of "little" pull requests this week, semi-normal for
this late in the cycle, but a lot of them were "fix up the previous fix
I just sent" which implies that people are having a few issues still.

I also know of at least one "bad" bug that finally has a proposed fix,
so that should hopefully get merged this week. And there are some
outstanding USB fixes I know of that have not yet landed in the tree (I
blame me for that...)

Anyway, the full shortlog is below, lots of tiny things all over the
tree. Please go and test and ensure that all works well for you.
Hopefully this should be the last -rc release.

thanks,

greg k-h

The easiest way is to go to https://packages.slackware.com/ and search for the package you want. Download it from the links provided.

Then I suggest you use "installpkg" to install it, and update your lilo settings, reboot. If all looks good, use "removepkg" on the kernel package from Slackware stable.

I was going to make a blog-post about it to slim down the process, but here's my personal microwaveable-quick version. May contain allergens.

EDIT: I'm going to omit this for now and tidy it up so as not to confuse things. Go read orbea's link.
