Hi to everyone.
What is now the latest kernel in Trisquel mini 9(64 bit)? Because I'm not sure to receive the kernel updates on my desk pc. Thanks

Hello Piriponzolo,

The version of the kernel shipped with Trisquel (except for the netinstall, you can select among multiple versions) is 4.15.0-151-generic. You may get security updates but it will always be a version of 4.15.

I don't think you need to update the version of the kernel unless you have a specific need.

Don't you receive upgrades?

Exactly, I don't receive kernel upgrades only. It is strange, I have now the 4.15.0-117-generic.

Is the package named "linux-image-generic" installed? That package depends on the latest version of the 4.15.0 kernel. You should definitely install it: vulnerabilities have certainly been fixed since version 4.15.0-117. If linux-image-generic is installed, what happens if you try to install linux-image-4.15.0-151-generic?

Yes, the package "linux-image-4.15.0-117-generic" is insttalled. The package "linux-headers-4.15.0-117-generic" is not installed, I have checked in Synaptic. If I try to install "linux-image-4.15.0-151-generic", I have the following:

Suggested packages:
fdutils linux-doc-4.15.0 | linux-source-4.15.0 linux-tools
linux-headers-4.15.0-151-generic
The followinng NEW packages will be installed:

Yes, the package "linux-image-4.15.0-117-generic" is insttalled.

My question is whether the package simply named "linux-image-generic" (no version in the name) is installed. If not, installing it should trigger the installation of the latest version and the Update Manager will propose you the latest bug-fix version whenever one is released in Trisquel's repository.

Thank you for the response and suggestion, Magic Banana. Tha package "linux-image-generic" was not installed. I have now installed that package and the latest kernel is 4.15.0-151-generic. Have I to install the suggested package "linux-headers-4.15.0-151-generic!?

You certainly do not need the headers.
