    Not to be outdone, AMD laptop users should also avoid linux 5.19.x to avoid broken suspend/resume.

        Running Debian testing for abt 10 years and my only hiccups were when fglrx was removed, 2x HD7870 setup in CrossFire which was a bummer, and recently booting with a new linux-image abt a month or 2 ago but that was easily alleviated by booting into the previous one.
        For the rest it still is rock solid to me can't say anything about other ppl.

          There have been non rolling releases that also break your setup, largely because they don't always completely update to later versions that have security patches/bug fixes for certain software.

          Newest software can break stuff, but it can also fix stuff that has been broken (and not noticed) for some reason in the past.

            I guess this kind of thing is difficult, because especially on the more on-the-fringes hardware, eg SPARC and PPC, things apparently break fairly regularly. Hard to find if not all intel laptops were affected too.

            Still shouldn't happen though.

              That is where a slightly older kernel as alternative in the boot menu helps. Xubuntu has that. As it is a derivative of Ubuntu, Ubuntu vanilla should have it too.
