    Phoronix: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS Delayed A Second Time

    Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS was supposed to ship in mid-January and then up until today was expected to be released on Thursday. But now it's being delayed at least one more week...

      How can you go to the HWE Stack and get the newer kernel and stuff?
      After 16.04.2 is officially released of course, but how do you do that?
      As far as I understood, you will stay on 16.04.1 and Kernel 4.4 if you don't upgrade manually right?
      Will there be a message asking me to upgrae? Is there a option I have to check first? Do I have to use a command?

      "albeit for AMDGPU-PRO users, this will cause issues"
      What issues are you refering to?

        Is this the release that they bring in Mesa 13 finally?

          No, instead everyone on 16.04 will get 12.0.6 via updates, and mesa 17.0/llvm-4.0 via backports when they're ready

            No, 12.0.3 it seems (http://packages.ubuntu.com/yakkety/libegl1-mesa)

            Meanwhile, Debian Stable has been offering kernel 4.8 and mesa 12.04 for over a month now (through backports), and I just got 4.9 today.

            Perhaps this is not true for other apps (e.g. no X server backports), but generally speaking it seems that Debian Stable has a better HWE flow than Ubuntu's.

            Sadly, I keep reading this Debian-Stable = old-hardware old saying every now and then.

              Debian Stable != Release Quality Stable

                My understanding is that you will stay on the non-HWE stack unless you explicitly accept the upgrade to 16.04.2, if you do accept it then you will be automatically upgrade to .3, .4, .5 etc... Same if you download and install an HWE image - you follow the HWE upgrade path from that point.

                re: AMDGPU-PRO, what Michael means is that if we don't release an AMDGPU-PRO that works with 16.04.2 (which will have the 16.10 graphics stack) then upgrading to 16.04.2 will cause problems when the upgrade logic attempts to re-install the kernel driver.

                  Yep, 16.04.2 and up will have a rolling enablement stack, more details at

                  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Rolli...nablementStack

                  Same applies to the X stack apart from Mesa which will be backported around the same time but unrenamed so that it'll replace the original version.

                    Upgrades related issues . Third party is always affected when you upgrade kernel/x, particulary AMDGPU-PRO which is sort of shipped to work with one kernel and one X

                    What AMDGPU-PRO will do there in another 6 months when 16.04.3 is there i dunno, then also X will be different major version... they might, but for now does not sounds to me they will support both stacks, not to mention mixed combinations

                    Expect shit on any upgrade, that way you may learn to avoid it

                    You can try it even now just enable proposed repo and expect shit to happen If shit does not happen by happy, otherwise fix it or complain
