Linux kernel 4.17.0

Last Updated on: 4th June 2018, 08:06 pm


The first version of Linux kernel of the new 4.17 line – 4.17.0 just landed in Sparky “unstable” repository.

– amd64 – build and installation OK – uploaded
– 686-pae – build and installation OK, but freeze all my graphical desktops down – uploaded anyway so you can test it too
– 686 (non-pae) – build failed

The Sparky’s Linux kernel is available in Sparky “unstable” repository, so enabled it to upgrade (if you have older version already installed) or to make fresh installation:

Follow the Wiki page: to install the latest Sparky’s Linux kernel.

Then reboot your machine to take effects.

To quick remove older version of the Linux kernel, simply run APTus-> Remove-> Uninstall Old Kernel tool.
