You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hi,
I view that, we have a new kernel for install in synaptic, other times, appears in mint update, but this time not, only in synaptic.
Arew this packages for install new kernel?
linux-headers
linux-image
linux-image-extra

Also, create a thread with this info for others users Smile

Regards!!
By default I think the mintupdate tool only shows kernel updates for the lts kernel.
Since I installed Maui 17.03, I update the kernel in 2, 3 or 4 times (if I understand well at you).
I update kernel by mintupdate tool.

Regards.
Yes those should be only minor Updates like Linux 4.4 but no upgrades from 4.4 to 4.11
You can of course install the Ubuntu HWE kernel, which is 4.10 at the moment, completely supported by Ubuntu as an LTS kernel. Much much safer than 4.11. Check this thread:

Ok, but since install Maui 17.03 this contain kernel 4.10.x. and with mintupdate, this was updated to newer version of 4.10.x
I don't understand very well this_
"no upgrades from 4.4 to 4.11"

Ok, thanks, but if I understand well, you indicate update to kernel 4.10 with Ubuntu HWE kernel, I have a kernel 4.10 by default.

Sorry if I don't understand well.

Thanks.
Ah sorry, I thought you didn't have the HWE kernel installed - that you only had 4.4. Anyway, the question is why do you want kernel 4.11? Your best bet for having a stable system is going with standard LTS kernels, so either 4.4 or HWE 4.10. If it is not really requried by your hardware, I wouldn't experiment with newer kernels, if I were you ;-) If you really want to install it, then it's enough to install linux-image-4.11* and linux-headers-4.11*.
Yes, with Maui 17.03 (with fresh install) by default, I have a kernel 4.10.x
And some updates of this kernel with mintupdate.

But I don't know that, kernel 4.10 its a LTS and 4.11 isn't LTS...

Reasson for update to 4.11?
For test if when I restart, dissapears some error messages of my kernel.

My doubt was this, in the last days, mintupdate update my 4.10.x kernel, but not appears for 4.11, and if 4.11 isn't LTS, now I know the reasson (or I think).

But in other question, Maui 17.03 by default have a kernel 4.10.x but I view that, I don't have installed xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04...
And in synaptic, I view linux-signed-image-generic-hwe-16.04-edge with version 4.11.0 (I don't know exactly what are "hwe") this package are not installed.

Regards!
