    Phoronix: Linux 4.18-rc8 Kernel Released, Final Pushed Back To Next Weekend

    Last Sunday Linus Torvalds released 4.18-rc7 and expected that to be the last release candidate followed by the stable debut one week later, which would have been today. But by Tuesday this past week he had already decided he would need to delay the release over recent notable regressions and an uptick in merge activity. As a result, out today is Linux 4.18-rc8...

      4.18-rc7 and rc8 break the fstrim command for me. Running F2FS on a NVMe SSD. Anyone notice anything similar?

        Just found out the hard way that 'Ubuntu Kernel Update Utility' does not install the kernels properly for snaps to work. Hours wasted looking for solution.
        There is a work around here until it get's fixed.

          Are you sure? Picking up 4.18.0-rc8 from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...ine/v4.18-rc8/ would surely result in working snaps.

          I believe UKUU just does the sudo dpkg -i *.deb command, nothing out of the ordinary.

            This looks urgent. Maybe prepend [regression] to the email subject as well.

              None of the snaps worked but i tried powershell and that worked. then found this temporary fix. I just copy pasta..
