It looks like the Linux Lite Kernel versions 4.xx.0 do not pass the spectre-meltdown-checker tests. Any insight would be appreciated.

  • Linux Lite: 3.8 64bit

  • CPU: AMD A10-6700 (ASUS M32)

  • MEMORY: 12Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: ADM Radeon HD (integrated)
... IMPORTANT: Only install this kernel if you need it or if you are adept at getting out of trouble from a TTY.

Why would this be needed now before the kernel update the regular updates? And no I am not adept ...  ;D

Jerry, when will a kernel later than the 4.4 series become the default?

There won't be as we already provide newer kernel versions via our repository for people requiring newer hardware support.
No, what I meant was (I should have been more specific): at what release of LL will a newer kernel be installed as the default? LL 3.8 (and when is that due?)? or do we have to wait for the LL 4.X series?

My last post answers your question. I'm not sure how much clearer and concise I could have been. Cheers :)

4.10 will always be around. There are no so called 'support' periods. If 4.10 is working for your particular set up, you won't need support :)

What I mean by support is security updates for kernel.

Security updates will be applied if that particular kernel version requires it.

Currently I have been running the computer on 4.12!  I haven't noticed much of a difference between the 4.10 and 4.12.  I know the monitor, keyboard, and mouse all work but I haven't tested the sound yet.  Jerry I don't know how your managing the kernels for this distro.  But wikipeida says 4.10 EOL (maintained from February 2017 to May 2017)  Are you taking care of security for every Kernel that is in the lite tweaks?   I'm just wondering about how all of this works...  Thanks for making a wonderful distro.

I've been running linux lite on the intel DG965OT mainboard.  I think it is almost a year now!  Under all the kernels I have tried, I experienced shutdown issues. I'm not going to go into to many details about it because I have already in older posts. I noticed that Linux Mint is now using 4.10 with Mint 18.2. After upgrading the kernel to 4.10 on that other machine, I decided to try it on Linux Lite.  Ever since I upgraded to 4.10 this mainboard  DG965OT seems to be shutdown better.  How long is linux lite going to support 4.10?
