    Phoronix: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Working To Be Released This Week With New Hardware Enablement Stack

    After failing to make it out last week due to a boot failure bug blocking the release, Ubuntu developers are working on getting out the 18.04.2 LTS point release this week that will ship a new Hardware Enablement "HWE" stack...

      Switching to 4.18 will mean this bug will start to affect more people: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1798961

        well, it also means that it's likely to get fixed earlier because of more reports, data and complaints while moving to 4.18.x which is EOL upstream for months is questionable given that 4.19 is a LTS kernel and for a view weeks now even useable on firewalls doing connlimit/conncount - so they still have to work hard for all sorts of backportsto kepp 4.18 alive

          correct already, it's why they push this version a week after the schedule

            Fortunately, Ubuntu .00 and 01 does not automatically update the HWE stack, it only does from 02 onwards, which should be avoided if you do not have new hardware. From my experience it is no coincidence that this policy has brought more problems to the users than benefits.

              Depends really. One of my Intel systems runs Ubuntu and it has benefited from the HWE stack upgrades. The Intel, onboard graphics run noticably faster. I even do some before and after benchmarks and found a measurable difference. It was like a 15% improvement IIRC.

                Hopefully the AMDGPU support on this version will be better, Ubuntu 18.04.1 kernel won't even boot on my Ryzen 5 anymore.
