Incidentally, I see that the 4.19 series FINALLY works properly with my MS Arc keyboard, and doesn't think it has a joystick.

It, as did the 4.18 series, sees my old ALPS Glidepoint Keyboard (with a built-in touchpad) as a "Barcode Reader Mouse" and a "Barcode Reader Consumer Control."

I had an instance where I restored my laptop from a suspend to RAM but the screen was black, mouse unresponsive, and keyboard did not work. The fan was spinning at maximum speed as well. I tried to view a virtual terminal (CTRL+ALT+F1 etc) but I think my laptop was locked up so I did a hard reset after waiting a few minutes.

I haven't been able to reproduce my problem and nothing in the logs is standing out. Has anyone had trouble with suspend to RAM with 4.19.1? I was on Slackware-current from "Sun Nov 4 19:45:38 UTC 2018". I since updated to today's batch of -current.

EDIT: If anyone else had a similar issue, I will start a new thread so this one isn't derailed. I am mostly just curious.

Kernel updates 4.18.18, 4.14.80, 4.9.136, 4.4.163 and 3.18.125 are now available at,

Dave's Unofficial Slackbuilt Kernel updates for the 4.4.xxx and 4.18.xx series can be found at, https://dusk.idlemoor.tk

No 4.19.2 update at the moment and last I looked there wasn't one scheduled.

And, last, but not least, a request from Greg K-H,
Quote:
Linux 3.18.125
From: Greg KH
Date: Sat Nov 10 2018 - 11:14:45 EST

-----------
NOTE! Are there still any users of this tree? It only makes sense to
keep doing 3.18.y updates if people are using it. And from what I can
see in the "real world", no one is actually updating devices that rely
on 3.18.y to the newer kernel releases. So I think I'm going to stop
maintaining this tree soon unless someone speaks up and says "I am using
it!" Please let me know........

thanks,

greg k-h

Linux Additions: further fixes for Linux 4.19


https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog#22
With Virtualbox-5.2.22 and a 32 bit Slackware-current guest (generic 4.19.1-smp with guest additions), the guest was getting a kernel panic (unable to handle kernel paging request) during boot, immediately after 'Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --action=add'.

As a wild guess, it might be caused by the Slackware 4.19.1-smp kernel already having its own versions of the vboxguest and vboxvideo modules, because, having deleted the Virtualbox modules from /lib/modules/4.19.1-smp/misc (and running depmod), it now boots. However, I didn't have this problem on 64 bit with the same setup.

(Anyway, that's why dusk 4.18.18-smp has been delayed.)

4.20-rc2

The newest "mainline" kernel, version 4.20-rc2, has been been made available for testing.

The tarball, https://git.kernel.org/torvalds/t/linux-4.20-rc2.tar.gz

Mr. Torvalds' announcement,
Quote:
Linux 4.20-rc2
From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sun Nov 11 2018 - 18:16:28 EST
Fairly normal week, aside from me traveling.

Shortlog appended, but it all looks fine: about half drivers, wih the
rest being the usual architecture updates, tooling, networking, and
some filesystem updates.

Go forth and test,

Linus
http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/k...1.1/04260.html

Sometime Tuesday we should see a 4.19.xx upgrade with 361 patches.

It has been running smoothly on this box for over 12 hours now. No problems of any kind.
