Kernel 4.12 update

(David) #1

Just wondering…

[tactica@world ~]$ uname -a
Linux world 4.11.10_1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 12 17:24:18 UTC 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[tactica@world ~]$ sudo xbps-install -Suv
[*] Updating 'https://repo.voidlinux.eu/current/x86_64-repodata' ...
[tactica@world ~]$ xbps-query -R linux4.12
architecture: x86_64
build-date: 2017-07-13 00:30 CEST

So why isn’t 4.12 being installed by xbps-install -Suv?


Because its very fresh and we wait usually a bit until its set as the new default for the linux meta package, this usually depends on dkms modules and stability but at the end its just up to the maintainers.
You are free to install linux4.12 already, its just not the default yet.

I see… That was my suspicion, but I wasn’t sure. Another one for the FAQ then, thank you and @ColdPhoenix00 too :wink:
