So I have a question-
I just compiled, made packages for and installed the newest Xanmod kernel 5.0.8-xanmod5 because I need a aufs patched kernel for my Slacker releases.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lin...er/LiveKernel/

My question is how can i tell if there is a difference between the generic slackware kernel and the xanmod low-latency, etc, etc kernel??
https://xanmod.org/

I mean will music playback be better? better video stuff? it boots pretty fast. But the Generic kernel is lower ram...
Thanks for any advice!

Another round of kernel updates has been scheduled for release on Friday afternoon, GMT.
If no problems are found while testing the release candidates, they might be available late Thursday or early Friday.

Edit in: There are four people who test the kernel update release candidates. By this time Thursday they had all reported "all was well," i.e., no regressions or build failures. In the past that meant the new kernels could be posted anytime thereafter.
However, he with the hyphenated surname, seems to have packed a bag and left town, so to speak. Perhaps, a much deserved long weekend.

Thumbs up

It appears Board Member 55020's automated script used to create the
DUSK 4.4.y updates is no longer working. I just searched the board and
he hasn't posted since last December.
Perhaps, he is on a well deserved sabbatical in the South Pacific somewhere?
It appears he's returned (much appreciated, on my part at least!) 4.4.179 is available

Still not quite all there, by the looks of things:

Code:
lysander@lysultra-vi:~$ gawk '{ print FILENAME ":\t" $0 }' /sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/*
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/l1tf:	Mitigation: PTE Inversion; VMX: conditional cache flushes, SMT vulnerable
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/meltdown:	Mitigation: PTI
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/spec_store_bypass:	Vulnerable
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/spectre_v1:	Mitigation: __user pointer sanitization
/sys/devices/system/cpu/vulnerabilities/spectre_v2:	Mitigation: Full generic retpoline, STIBP: disabled, RSB filling
These must be proving quite a challenge for the devs.
