Kernel Upgrade to v. 4.9 [Solved]

Postby linuxfluesterer » Sun Jan 22, 2017 20:47

Hallo guys, maintainers of Sabayon.
As I see Sabayon as a Rolling Release, I often upgraded my Kernel with:
Code: Select all
equo up
kernel-switcher list

and then, when a new Kernel mainline was shipped by Sabayon, I did:
Code: Select all
kernel-switcher switch linux-sabayon-4.x

On the official website:
http://www.kernel.org
you can see, that Kernel 4.9 is already marked as 'stable' in version 4.9.5. In earlier times I remember, Sabayon offered rather early a new published version of Kernels.
So, where is Kernel 4.9, please, when will it appear? I'm still on Kernel 4.8.15.
I'm using an old KDE 4.14.10 and also a Sabayon with Plasma 5.8.5 with all latest updates.
Thank you in advance.

Looks like it's in the limbo repo.

╠ @@ Package: sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-4.9.4 branch: 5, [sabayon-limbo]
╠ Available: version: 4.9.4 ~ tag: NoTag ~ revision: 0
╠ Slot:

You also have to keep in mind that once the kernel is out, it doesn't mean the drivers are ready for it to mainline immediately. So there is often a bit of a delay.

Update: A view days ago, the latest stable Kernel 4.9.5 was shipped by Sabayon.org repo.
I already installed it with:
Code: Select all
kernel-switcher switch linux-sabayon-4.9.5

I will mark the thread as [Solved].
