Re: Helps about upgrade Kernel Mint 17.3 for Spectre and Meltdown

[*]Even if the updated Intel microcode package holds updated code for your CPU, it may be wise to think twice. There have been quite a few reports that the updated microcode cause quite a few computers to reboot unexpectedly. Intel may have to bugfix the update very likely.[/list] As my CPUs are al...

Re: Helps about upgrade Kernel Mint 17.3 for Spectre and Meltdown

Hello, giorgio33. Thanks for posting the inxi report. The good thing about the inxi reports is their concise format, even though it makes them look a bit confusing when you look at such a report for the first time. But once you have taken the time to go through them section by section and line by l...

Re: Helps about upgrade Kernel Mint 17.3 for Spectre and Meltdown

An absolute answer is pitifully not possible. You might want to read, what I wrote just 1 hour ago regarding your question. Thank you very much. That's what I was looking for! The information is so disseminated that it is difficult even to find them. I read his post immediately. Hope it can help me!

Re: Security notice: Meltdown and Spectre

giorgio33, press the refresh button in Update Manager and see if it finds newer kernels then. Double check the kernels in the list as the 4.4.0-100 might be at the top of the list I refreshed, but the situation has not changed. I noticed, however, that there are some old level 3 security updates no...
