Most of the time I run the latest Liquorix, but right now I'm running the latest 5.2.7 I've just backported from Sid to make sure it doesn't blow up my laptop before sending it to the test repo.

My goodness, I'm the first one to vote ? :) I'm not sure if I've chosen the correct one with "Generic Stable": currently 5.2.3 from stable repo with no issues on an old 32bit laptop :)

I am not sure what to put down. The real answer to what kernel are you running is

Code: Select all

System:    Host: Ryzen Kernel: 4.19.18-antix.1-amd64-smp x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 
           Distro: MX-18.3_x64 Continuum Dec 20  2018
I have the antix 19 beta2 on my testing partition, 5.1.5 from the antiX repo. Just so I could see if my Ryzen hardware will work with new kernels and Buster. :happy:

It is so easy to change, leaving the old kernel in grub to fall back to if needed.
Why change kernel?
To have the latest? No. Maybe fixed some bugs...yes, but made some new ones.
Fixed security holes, yes, the known ones.

If all your devices and programs work, there is no need to change your kernel !

Here's what I've been running the last couple weeks

Code: Select all

System:    Host: mx1 Kernel: 5.3.0-050300rc2-lowlatency x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 9.1.0 Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 
           tk: Gtk 2.24.25 info: xfce4-panel wm: xfwm4 dm: LightDM 1.10.3 Distro: MX-16_x64 Metamorphosis 12 December 2016 
           base: Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)

I also didn't answer the poll, but "other" is probably the best match.

The mobile broadband card in my laptop is very sensitive to having the correct bits installed. Some updates, like a new firmware set can break it. Usually upgrading to the latest liquorix fixes it...usually. Sometimes I have to back up to a previous debian stock kernel to get it going again and wait for another liquorix to show up (thank the steveo) which gets it working again. If I didn't have this mobile bb issue, I'd probably only install a new kernel for testing and then revert back.

Systemd kernel as it has caused fewer headaches on my hardware.
