Backed off from the 5.4.13 kernel

January 22, 2020 — BarryK

This morning I compiled the 5.4.13 Linux kernel. Unfortunately, it has assigned the drive letters of my internal drives differently. I have three internal drives on my HP midi-tower desktop PC. sda was OK, but sdb and sdc are swapped. This is happening because the kernel is discovering them in a different order, which is annoying -- from the beginning of the installation of these three drives, years ago, they have always been discovered by the kernel in the same order.

Yeah annoying. We need to find what commit is the culprit, and contact the chap who has done it.

Anyway, I don't want to deal with it now, so for the next release of EasyOS, likely to be 2.2.5, staying with the 5.4.12 kernel.
