    Phoronix: Fedora Users Will Soon See Linux 5.5 Made Available As A Stable Update

    Fedora 30 and Fedora 31 users will soon see Linux 5.5 come down as a stable update, but before then you can help if so inclined to test this new kernel revision on Fedora...

    I wonder if this comes with any fix for the Intel Wifi being broken problem ?
    On one of my computers Wifi is not working anymore with Manjaro-kernel 5.5.0 and also with Ubuntu-kernel 5.5.2
    Until somebody fixes this wifi problem, kernel 5.5 is useless for me!

      The fix for the specific Intel 3168 device issue is apparently: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11353871/ and the reported mitigation before it gets merged is to set IOMMU to off (5.5 defaults to on, which may result in other artifacts on some systems (suspend on some laptops has been reported to be broken with iommu on)).
