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: https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/linux_kernel to install the latest Sparky’s Linux kernel.
Then reboot your machine to take effects.
