Is Kernel 6.1.x Set in Stone for Slackware 15.1?


I have an Orange Pi 5 (RK3588S), and the .dts files for the kernel are available in the 6.5.x kernel. If a new LTS kernel is announced, will slackware-current be upgraded to the new LTS, or is it set in stone that the 6.1.x kernel will be the kernel for 15.1?

I would beware of anything newer than 6.1.50 at the moment due to the bug mentioned here: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ls-4175729155/

It only appears to affect DVB modules, as far as I am aware, but it is so far reaching that it could affect almost anything. Its certainly still present in 6.5.2, though it looks as if the kernel devs are now aware of it.

Patrick says that if there's a new LTS released before Slackware 15.1 is ready, it'll be considered. It's all around timing and stability.

The Orange PI 5 is not a supported Hardware Model though, so you'd need to sort out the boot loader and the Kernel Loader script for yourself. If you don't have Slackware already running on an existing supported HWM, you could run Slackware AArch64 in QEMU: it's supported, just no installation docs yet.
From there you could compile your own custom Kernel using the tooling - it's described on docs.slackware.com.


If you get it done, you're welcome to submit the updates here and I'll merge them in.
