Mint 19.1, thoughts on Kernel 5.0.0-15?

Post by psklenar »

I'm currently running Kernel 5.15.0-50 (LTS) but see that Update Manager is offering Kernel 5.0.0-15 with support until February 2020. What with all of the recent security warnings and stuff ... does anyone have any thoughts, positive or negative, about moving to the v5 kernels?

Thank you,

That's ok. Search on the forum is knackered anyway. The only way to search properly is with go-ogle.

Cheers.
