    If you install 4.12 and wonder why your monitors no longer sleep with dpms when your servers boot to console mode...you now need to explicitly add something along the lines of "consoleblank=600" to your kernel boot arguments. This default sleep value was removed from vt.c with this kernel release.

      What the hell?? I've waited 90 minutes and it's still not in Arch Linux stable. What a joke

        It broke virtualbox 5.1.22 (latest stable version) - kernel modules do not compile any more

          Good catch, guess I won't be trying 4.12 any time soon. Or not until Virtualbox works anyways.

            And what's stopping you from building the kernel yourself?

              This is going to be bad.... Vulkan intel driver is randomly crashing on latest kernel.

                Linux distribution religion. When you use Debian testing, you need to obtain latest Linux kernel and Mesa elsewhere. Rosegarden is old too, so I compiled it from sources. I am following the agd5f/linux/log/?h=drm-next-4.14-wip kernel and will create custom kernel packages when the kernel has version 4.12. Now the kernel version is rc7.

                  Wrong kernel config can cause random crashes too. The Arch Linux mesa repository is also behind Oibaf ppa, so to have optimal graphics software stack match it is better use Debian testing with a custom kernel and Oibaf ppa.
