Staying with 5.4.20 Linux kernel

March 03, 2020 — BarryK

Anticipating release of a new EasyOS soon, I compiled the 5.4.23 kernel. After running it on my HP midi-tower for about five minutes, the desktop froze. I muttered under my breath "what have they done this time?!"

There have been ups and downs with the 5.4.x kernel, as reported earlier:

My HP has not frozen with the 5.4.20 kernel, so staying with that. Running 5.4.20 now, no problems. It really is a concern that minor version changes are causing major stability changes.
