...most of us are already aware of this, but in case the rare puppiest out there isn't---here's a funny article and quoting the first few lines:



Linux kernel 3.14 declared end-of-life. Colonel Kitten informs platoon
Earplugs out, this could get shouty[

RODENTS! But enough about the canteen. PAY ATTENTION. THIS IS YOUR COLONEL! I have an important missive about an enemy among us.

As you know, we take our mission to look after the Linux kernel very seriously in this platoon and I am sad to inform you that one of our top kernel agents has been given a burn notice...........................................

Yup, I compiled 3.14.79 yesterday and will probably keep using this one until my laptop goes EOL. Smile Any critical patches can be backported by hand I guess.

Next up is 3.4(112) which is due 9/2016.
The 3.4.x kernel is in Slacko5.7 puppies (3.4.82).

3.10.x kernels are safe until 10/2017.

3.16 looks good until April 2020, but doesn't seem to get patched as often https://www.kernel.org/releases.html

3.16.37 is latest massive update.

To go forward with the eee-spins, I might have to go to 6.3 w/Kdelta -->3.16.(37)

The suggestion of 3.16.x is for length of suppoort. I notice that the 4-series are all short.

MHO/ Its nice, and expected to try the newest kernels in puppy, as some other basic security and ops get updated. But frankly, there seems to be a lot of older computers that are having difficulty migrating (some as recent as 2013). It appears IMHO that some things have been deprecated in favor of newer. /MHO

If you want to still support older computers, Puppy needs to watch how new a kernel it uses.

The biggest reason to use newer kernel is to get support for newest hardware.

I am not going to look for it, but I have seen statements that the Linux kernel is dropping very older hardware support as the kernel progresses.

Even Puppy stopped supporting K-6 or P2 processors.

Oh, well i found a nice solution that gave me a simple .pet install.
I now run 4.4.6

LTS so will be a slow one, no need to upgrade to often.
Works awesome, i thiunk it was a faster upstart aswell, might be a placebo effect Smile
