I've been building 4.19 kernels on 14.2 for over two months without any issues. Still using the GCC 5.5. I'm not sure why you are stating that 4.19 can't be built or implying that the security backports in any kernel release are dependent on GCC version? I haven't found anything on LQ or in Kernel blogs that say you must be using a specific GCC to build the kernel. I'm ready to be corrected, but it just doesn't match my experience. Cheers

I hope you're right about Slack 15 getting close, but I'd advise to not hold your breath, there are still frequent issues with -current popping up here in the forum and it doesn't look like there's a conclusion about the default desktop env. for X yet, nor about KDE's future.
I hope PV is doing fine, had a wonderful holidays season and enjoying now some home-brewed beer with AlienBoB in the "US of A":

I guess we should focus on the kernels in this kernel related thread, I fear cwizardone will report us for hijacking his rather useful thread

I admit I haven't been compiling kernels recently, so that part was wrong.
But DO note this part of the 14.2 ChangeLog
Quote:
Please note that this kernel was compiled with gcc-5.5.0, also provided as an update for Slackware 14.2. You'll need to install the updated gcc in order to compile kernel modules that will load into this updated kernel.
so gcc 5.5 was already an update as the prevous version of the compiler set couldn't compile the kernel anymore (nor modules FOR it).
The original gcc as distributed with the 14.2 release was 5.3

Oh, I agree, but the hardware manufacturers are not sitting around waiting for Slackware. Hopefully, we will see a new release in the very near future.

As far as I know, it can compile it, just not with the retpoline fixes enabled. I was able to build earlier 4.19 kernels (up to 4.19.5) with the older gcc 5.3, but when I tried building a newer one (I can't remember what version), it complained it couldn't because of retpoline being enabled in the kernel. I think with earlier 4.19 versions, it would just ignore the retpoline if the compiler couldn't handle it, but newer ones made it error out.

5.0-rc2

The newest "mainline" kernel, version 5.0-rc2, has been been made available for testing.
The tarball, https://git.kernel.org/torvalds/t/linux-5.0-rc2.tar.gz

Mr. Torvalds' announcement,
Quote:
From: Linus Torvalds
Date: Sun Jan 13 2019 - 18:10:19 EST

So the merge window had somewhat unusual timing with the holidays, and
I was afraid that would affect stragglers in rc2, but honestly, that
doesn't seem to have happened much. rc2 looks pretty normal.

Were there some missing commits that missed the merge window? Yes. But
no more than usual. Things look pretty normal.

What's a bit abnormal is that I'm traveling again, and so for me it's
a Monday release, but it's (intentionally) the usual "Sunday
afternoon" release schedule back home. I'm trying to not surprise
people too much.

As to actual changes: all looks fairly normal. Yes, there's a fair
number of perf tooling updates, so that certainly stands out in the
diffstat, but if you ignore the tooling and just look at the kernel,
it's about two thirds drivers (networking, gpu, block, scsi..), with
the rest being the usual mix of arch updates (ARM, RISC-V, x86, csky),
with some filesystem (btrfs, cifs) and vm fixes.

Go test,

Linus
