Re: Where can I find more information on the recent update to the 4.18.0-373 kernel

Hi, not to mention the war again but you do have a alternative (stream) and the fabled kernel-ml which has been working fine in production servers according to my experiences (fleet of over 400 servers virtual and physical).

And assuming you are talking about CentOS 8.x there are several alternative distros out there to choose from if you do need a point release rather then rolling forward (as stream is-ish).

I might have missed something during the threads lifespan but what are the reasons for not using the kernel-ml packages?

In any case, posting more info in case anyone needs it.

Hello folks --

Is there any write up for the most recent update to kernel 4.18.0-373
specifically with respect to sound setup or anything really? I had
using an "alpha" driver for my Intel sound that was appended to my
line up until this latest. This not only did not work but caused
continual hangs. Edited the 4.18.0-373 kernel line and things got
somewhat better...but....this version is loading A LOT of modules
and do
I really need them, etc.

I am going through a lot of grief with this recent upgrade.

Thanks for any help...

I am getting ready to push a -383 kernel in a few minutes (if you
still need an update)
Right now...kernel 4.18.0-373 is absolutely useless. Boots then goes out
to lunch. Period.

Given your reply about a new kernel -- and I see other updates as well.

Centos 8 was SUPPOSED to be out of service in Dec, 2021. I was not
paying attention to this. UGH!

So...what can we expect in terms of ANY updates to the CentOS 8 line at
this point?
