And now the first #Linux #kernel vanilly 5.5 git snapshot is heading towards the mainline branch of said #Fedora repos.

The mainline-wo-mergew will not get this, it'll stay on 5.4 until 5.5-rc1 is out (which will mark the end of the merge window).



#Linux 5.4 (released earlier today) is now available as RPM in the stable branches of my #Kernel vanilla repositories for #Fedora 31, 30 and 29: fedoraproject.org/wiki/Kernel_Va…

Side note: Linux 5.3.13 (released yesterday), is available in the fedora branches of those repositories.





oracle.... oracle.... the shit about patents right ?






#Linux 5.3.11, which fixes a few important issues(¹), is now available in my #Kernel vanilla repositories for #Fedora: #[url=https://fc.leemhuis.info/search?tag=Linux]Linux 5.3.11, 4.19.84, 4.14.154, 4.4.201 & 4.9.201 are out.

As usual, users should upgrade, as those new #kernel versions besides small improvements contain a bunch of fixes – some of which might be crucial for the security of your systems. [/share]

Submit a talk to @devconf_cz

Next up: decide if I want to submit a talk to the #CentOSDojo, as I'm unsure if something like "Why #CentOS is a great distribution for ordinary end-users that seek to replace Windows – and why other dists in the end are a better choice" fits.




One more week to decide if I want to go or skip this time :-/
