Kernel 3.19-trunk
« on: April 09, 2015, 09:31:51 pm »
I have installed Linux kernel 3.19-trunk from Sid repos yesterday...
After rebooting the wireless function of network-manager stopped working :(
After next rebooting via the standard kernel 3.16 everything is fine.
So... I don't recommend the 3.19 kernel yet.

If you want to go full 3.19, then try the recent Liquorix. I've been using it for a few months now and no problems yet. :)

I don't, it was a test only with Debian's kernel.

Don't worry. Those are just warnings about missing firmware files (note the "W" prefix). Probably some firmware package not being installed, but if you don't use that module, then you can ignore it.

Hi way12go.. :)

Yep, I am using that kernel as well, and get the same message.  Its a bug..
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92551

Everything seems to work fine, though.

Code: [Select]
gene@sparky:~$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 3.19-2.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64 (Debian 3.19-2) () (gcc version 4.9.2 (Debian 4.9.2-10) ) #1 ZEN SMP PREEMPT Debian 3.19-2 (2015-03-24)

Kernel 3.16 does not work at all for me, freezes totally or resulting in a black screen at booting ... these problems started in January.
Upgrading to liquorix-kernel solved the problems and everything works fine again. Since liquorix upgraded from 3.18 to 3.19 I get also this message on boot, but everything works well.

I've got that message as well, but I haven't noticed any drawbacks in usage. As for the black screen and freezing you're mentioning, it's probably that #$#@%#@! ( yes, I don't like it ;) ) Kernel Mode Switch. I haven't got a single device running with it without problems. If not from the start, then after some kernel updates KMS finally starts freezing everything up. It's mostly due the Nouveau KMS settings, but Intel's KMS sometimes freezes up too. Now that Xorg requires KMS to even run, then disabling it makes it a bit difficult to get any graphic environment. That being said Liquorix fixed the problem for me too. ;)
