Linux kernel 3.14

Postby mike acker » Sun Mar 23, 2014 1:33 pm

an article on ars technic talks about new Linux kernels

there was this

The latest stable release of Linux was version 3.13.6. Linux 3.14 could be released in the coming days, with improved Intel Broadwell graphics support, updates to the open source Nvidia driver, enablement of dynamic power management for newer AMD Radeon graphics cards, support for Logitech's Dual Action Gamepad, and other upgrades.


some of the new support will probably be interesting to some of our users/prospects

how does the new kernel get incorporated into LMDE/201403

2. EXPERIMENTAL SYSTEM: Parts on Order; More info-later;

In the next update pack after it got to Testing? Both it and Sid have 3.13 right now.

But if you're impatient you can try the siduction kernel - no guarantees. ;) Or compile it yourself.

http://packages.qa.debian.org/l/linux.html

debian experimental have 3.14rc7. the final version isn't ready yet. we usually wait several weeks until new kernel enter unstable and 10 days more until it enter testing. LMDE UP didn't have regular period. next UP could be in next 3, 6 or 9 month later. at that time we might got 3.15.

cool, thanks
I'm an ORF* now so I'll wait for the RC
then my contribution will be installing the RC
and whatever remarks & comments may result from that
