--- Another Kernel Upgrade ---

062020-1749hrs (EDT)

 

All's well now... running 4.4.227 with a reinstalled Nvidia 390.32 drivers. This was a security update that was released about a month ago. I got 'er done today. I'm a little lax (read as lazy) about kernel upgrades. Gun shy a bit, maybe. All went smoothly, though. YAY!

Wonder what I'm going to do when Nvidia stops upgrading the drivers for my card. :(

I can't. I don't get my monitor's full screen resolution (1680x1050) with Nouveau. :(

Well, this was a fun thread to read through. I came back here to post a new message, though...

 

Gotta' new kernel (security) upgrade in the downloads directory as I type. Going to be upgrading from my current 4.4.227 to 4.4.240. Wish me LUCK! :)

 YAY! I like it when it just works. :)

 

You could have that feeling all the time if you made the move to Arch 😜

OK, it's that time again...

 

Time for a Slackware kernel upgrade! Oh, boy! And... let's not forget about those updated Nvidia drivers, too. Anyway... I've downloaded all the necessaries and will take care of this chore sometime in the next few days or so. YAY!

Finally got around to this...

 

Kernel upgraded to 4.4.261; also, Nvidia drivers upgraded to 390.141.

 

All's well. :)

I developed excessive CPU cycle usage immediately after upgrading to kernel 4.4.261 recently. This has continued to be an issue for the last few days since the upgrade.

I finally got tired of it and reverted to the previous (back-up) kernel 4.4.240. All's fine again now.

Yup... probably.

 

This is a very rare thing in Slackware. I've only had kernel issues after an upgrade a couple times in 15 or so years, so... can't really complain.

Arch fanbois! I just can't get away from 'em. :(

 

I may need to come back to the board.  We need some Gentoo fanbois to balance out the Arch fanbois.
