    Phoronix: The Most Interesting Highlights To The Linux 5.0 Kernel

    With the Linux 5.0 kernel due out within the next week or two, here's a look back at the biggest end-user facing changes for this kernel release that started out as Linux 4.21...

    Freesync is like on off between min vrr and max vrr with RX570 and latest open source drivers. No values between according to the monitor built in refreshed rate counter . Have any other user noticed the same?

      I'd be surprised if many others have tried. I'll give it a go once the necessary packages hit Arch repos.

        I tried a couple of times in the past but could not make it work at all.

          I'm sad the only interesting point on this for me is the mice, it's been quite a while since I got really excited about a new kernel :/

            Btrfs was mostly stable for me, for years. Yet btrfs partition died twice this month, first time with Linux 5.0rc4 and second time with Linux 5.0rc6, moreover second time btrfs refuse to mount partition even in read-only mode. I hope that because my SSD is dying or issues between NVME and eGPU connected via TB3, or something like that, otherwise btrfs in Linux 5.0 is unstable beyond anything I seen before.

              Are any NVMe drives old enough to be dying yet? I hope that's more to do with you using RC versions.

              I just wonder how many things will break now. I'm considering stepping out of Fedora to get out of mainline hell. Using the latest versions has certainly become better over the last years, but it's still the most buggy software on my laptop.

                If they are Samsung, they can die from day one, they don't need to get old.

                More seriously, firmware issues could do that.

                But it's an rc kernel so all bets are off on what is broken.

                  Aside from a Samung 950 PRO that died prematurely on me, I've only had 2 or 3 off-brand NVMe drives die on me so far.

                    I had a 500GB Western Digital Black series that was DOA. Replacement unit has been fine over 6 months.
