How to Create Bootable USB For Ubuntu 16.10 'Yakkety Yak' Using UnetBootin


"Yakkety Yak" is the code name for Ubuntu 16.10, scheduled for release October 2016. Yes, we're talking about Ubuntu 16.10, which has been dubbed "Yakkety Yak" by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth on the day the company launched their sixth LTS (Long Term Support) release, Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus).


Ubuntu 16.10 Release Date


The release date for Ubuntu 16.10 is posted on the Ubuntu Wiki, along with the dates of the development milestones required to get it there.

Prior to the final stable release on October 22, the regular version of Ubuntu (i.e. the one flavors are based on) will take part in a single beta release tentatively set for September 22, 2016.

Ubuntu’s family of flavours, which includes Xubuntu and Ubuntu GNOME, will take advantage of more testing opportunities, with two alpha, two betas and a release candidate up for use.

  • Alpha 1 – 30 June (for flavours)
  • Alpha 2 – 28 July (for flavours)
  • Feature Freeze — 18 August
  • Beta 1 – 25 August (for flavours)
  • UI Freeze — 8 September
  • Final Beta – 22 September
  • Kernel Freeze — 6 October
  • Release Candidate – 13 October

The (draft) final release date of Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak is set for:

  • Ubuntu 16.10 Final – October 20th


We've covered the entire development cycle of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system, and we're planning on covering the one of the upcoming Ubuntu 16.10 OS too, keeping you guys informed of the new features that are about to be implemented as they're revealed.

We took a quick look under the hood of the first 64-bit daily build Live ISO image of Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) to tell you what's new, but there's nothing new to report because it includes the same components that are available in the Ubuntu 16.04 ISOs.

Ubuntu 16.10 BETA 1 'Yakkety Yak' is Available For Download Now


The development of the Lubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) distribution continues and today we can get an early taste of what's coming in the final release of the lightweight GNU/Linux operating system, which should launch along with the rest of the Ubuntu flavors on October 13, 2016.


"Yakkety Yak" is the code name for Ubuntu 16.10, scheduled for release October 2016. Yes, we're talking about Ubuntu 16.10, which has been dubbed "Yakkety Yak" by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth on the day the company launched their sixth LTS (Long Term Support) release, Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus).

We've covered the entire development cycle of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system, and we're planning on covering the one of the upcoming Ubuntu 16.10 OS too, keeping you guys informed of the new features that are about to be implemented as they're revealed.

We took a quick look under the hood of the first 64-bit daily build Live ISO image of Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) to tell you what's new, but there's nothing new to report because it includes the same components that are available in the Ubuntu 16.04 ISOs.


Ubuntu MATE 16.10 Beta 1

Ubuntu MATE is an open source, community-derived operating system based on Ubuntu and features MATE, a fork of the GNOME Classic desktop environment, as its default and only graphical interface.

The most beautiful MATE setup ever made!
Ubuntu MATE is not just another Linux kernel-based operating system built around the MATE desktop environment, as it beautifully integrates this GNOME Classic fork, making it look very attractive, while at the same time being very lightweight. It uses a classic two-panel layout.

How to use it? Simple, use the Applications menu item to browser and open apps, the Places menu item to access the local filesystem or network shares and the System menu item to configure and tweak the OS. From the bottom panel you can easily interact with opened programs, as well as to cycle between the four virtual workspaces.

This is what has been changed since Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:

  • GNOME Main Menu (as used in the openSUSE layout) has been dropped.    * No one in the MATE team believes this applet is good enough to port to GTK3+. As it is GTK2+ only and has nobody to port or maintain it, this applet will be dropped for good.
  • The openSUSE layout is currently missing, but will be re-instated in MATE Desktop 1.16.    * This will feature a different menu applet.
  • The Mutiny layout is currently missing but will be re-instated when the topmenu-gtk MATE applet has been rebuilt for GTK3+
  • Pidgin will no longer be installed by default
  • Pidgin is now available in the Software Boutique.
  • Cheese is not currently installed by default but will be re-instated as a default application when merge proposal 298171 is merged and released.
  • Cheese is available in the Software Boutique.
  • Indicator Session is not currently available in Ubiquity while installing Ubuntu MATE but will be re-instated when merge proposal 297183 is merged and released.

This is what have been updated or added:

  • All the Ubuntu MATE seeds and meta-packages have been completely overhauled:
  • Basically we’ve started over, and completely rebuilt Ubuntu MATE 16.10 from the ground up.
  • It is now possible to safely uninstall all the default applications without the ubuntu-mate-desktop package also being removed.
  • Memory consumption of Ubuntu MATE 16.10 Alpha 1 is lower than that of Ubuntu MATE 16.04.

New community contributed wallpapers from:

  • Ghost Sixtyseven
  • Jordyn
  • Okinawa
  • Per Andersson
  • Upgraded to MATE Desktop 1.14, which is now built entirely against GTK 3.18:
  • Indicator support for MATE Desktop, when built against GTK3+, has been significantly improved.
  • Ambiant-MATE and Radiant-MATE themes have been completely reworked to support GTK 3.18.
  • We have initial HiDPI support (almost) working. Don’t get too excited, this is an all or nothing implementation. When enabled all GTK3+ applications (not just MATE) will be rendered using high quality pixel doubling. If you have a 2160p display, it looks ace
  • You can find out what changed in MATE Desktop 1.14 from the upstream release announcement.

Upgraded Ubuntu MATE Welcome to 16.10.4:

  • Ported to WebKit2 4.0. The transitions and animations are now hardware accelerated (where supported) and it looks very smooth indeed.
  • Sports a new look and many visual and usability enhancements.
  • Getting Started section offers much more assistance for a post install setup and configuration. (Some elements back ported to 16.04)
  • Adds driver installer for Logitech’s Unifying Receiver peripherals.
  • New builds are automatically tested.
  • Testers can check out this daily PPA, including packages for Xenial users wanting to test new versions of Welcome.
  • Detailed system specifications can now be copied to the clipboard.
  • Assorted performance optimisations.

Upgraded Software Boutique:

  • Adds News to inform you of additions/removals to the Software Boutique. (Back ported to 16.04)
  • Adds Search facility so you can quickly find software by name, keyword and description. (Back ported to 16.04)
  • Adds Bulk queue installs so you can queue up multiple applications to install at once.
  • Adds a responsive design** so you can see more software listings when resizing or maximising the Software Boutique window.
  • Software Boutique now stocks ~160 applications. (Back ported to 16.04)
  • Introduces a new feature to display a complete list of all applications and the repositories they are sourced from.
  • Support added for installing software for arm64 and ppc64el architectures.
  • Software install and removal notifications now use the associated application icon.

Upgraded MATE Tweak:

  • Splits up the UI and introduces a new Panel section.
  • Can now change icon sizes and menu item icon sizes in the panel, exposing a new MATE Desktop 1.14 capability. This has two benefits, bigger icons for high resolution displays and, if you are so inclined, large panels suitable for touch input but without changing the desktop metaphor.
  • Supports enabling new style GTK3+ indicators.
  • Supports xcompmgr compositor, the preferred compositor to use along side the Raspberry Pi hardware accelerated VC4 drivers.
  • Tilda is no longer enabled by default. Tilda is still installed by default, but can now be optionally enabled via MATE Tweak.
  • Upgraded MATE Dock Applet which now supports GTK3+
  • Upgraded MATE Menu which now support GTK3+

Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 Beta 1

Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 Beta 1 was released earlier as part of the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) launch, and it looks like the development team worked very hard to migrate the GNOME desktop environment, which is used by default in this official Ubuntu flavor, as well as most of the related applications to the GNOME 3.20 Stack.

Best of all, it appears that certain GNOME apps have been updated to the GNOME 3.22 Beta Stack, which sounds quite promising for the upcoming distribution. We've always loved to see the newest GNOME desktop environment release in a new Ubuntu GNOME release as soon as it was out.



Empathy IM has been removed from the ISOs
Among other interesting changes implemented in the Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 Beta release, we can mention that the Empathy IM client was removed from the ISO images, the new GNOME Characters tool is now installed by default, along with GNOME's Initial Setup utility, which lets users configure their installations more easily.

You'll also find an experimental Wayland session (accessible from the login screen), and the recently released LibreOffice 5.2 office suite, which uses the latest GTK3 version by default. Other than that, Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 Beta is still powered by the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel from Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 LTS.

"If your computer supports open source graphics drivers, choose GNOME on Wayland from the gear menu below the password entry from on the login screen," reads the announcement. "Many other bugs have been fixed. Where possible, many bug fixes have been backported to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS."

Software Updates

  • Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 proudly includes GNOME 3.20. Read the official 3.20 release notes to see what's new.
  • Select apps have been updated to their GNOME 3.22 Beta 1 (3.21.90) versions.
  • Virtually everything GNOME is at least 3.20. See the manifest for specific version numbers of included software.
  • LibreOffice 5.2 is included. Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 now uses the GTK3 version by default (other Ubuntu flavors still use GTK2 or the Qt versions).
  • GNOME's Initial Setup utility is included and enabled. It offers an easy way to configure language and online accounts integration on first login.
  • The instant messaging app Empathy is no longer installed by default for new installs but it is still available for install.
  • The new Characters character map utility is installed by default. If you prefer the older version, install gucharmap.
  • The experimental wayland session is included. If your computer supports open source graphics drivers, choose GNOME on Wayland from the gear menu below the password entry from on the login screen.
  • Many other bugs have been fixed. Where possible, many bug fixes have been backported to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Volunteers are requested to identify other bug fixes that can also be provided to 16.04 as Stable Release Updates.

Lubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) Beta 1

Although the Lubuntu team announced a few weeks ago that they are planning and working hard on migrating the desktop environment of Lubuntu 16.10 to the modern, next-generation LXQt graphical interface, this first Beta build still ships with LXDE. Additonally, Lubuntu 16.10 Beta 1 is powered by the same Linux 4.4 LTS kernel from Lubuntu 16.04 LTS.


"LXQt is still in development, because of this, Lubuntu still uses LXDE. (Although we are getting closer and closer, progress is made every day). This Yakkety Yak snapshot still includes the v4.4 kernel," reads today's announcement, where you'll also find the known issues present in the Lubuntu 16.10 Beta 1 release.


If you feel adventurous and you want to test drive the Beta 1 ISO images of Lubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), we recommend to download the 64-bit (amd64) and 32-bit (i386) builds right now via ubuntu website, where you'll find the regular Desktop and Alternate variants.

Kodi v17 “Krypton” Beta 1 is Released, Available PPA For Ubuntu Derivatives


Kodi v17 “Krypton” Beta 1 is Released, how to Install on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04

Kodi (formerly XBMC Media Center) is an open source and very powerful project that provides all the necessary tools for transforming your regular PC into a bona fide HTPC, which if used in conjunction a big screen TV and a Hi-Fi audio system, will transform your living room into a veritable home theater.

Features at a glance
Key features include powerful media management capabilities, a fluid Interface, plug-ins that allow for great extensibility, cinematic effects and visualizations, built-in multimedia codecs, themes, and much more. The application can play your entire collection of music files, supporting all the popular formats like MP3, FLAC, WAV, WMA or OGG. It also provides support for cue sheets, audio tagging and smart playlists.



Your entire video collection can also be played by Kodi, supporting all the major video formats like AVI, MP4, DivX, XviD, DVD Video, MKV, and many more. In addition, it includes support for Internet streams. The program provides support for organizing and viewing your favorite TV shows, which will be sorted by episodes and seasons. Moreover, Kodi can be used to display an entire collection of digital photos.

A Cleaner, Clearer Settings Section
The Kodi settings area has always  seemed to require some sort of advanced degree (or a similar amount of related experience) to navigate effectively. With that in mind, we have spent the better part of a year cleaning up and reorganizing Settings with the ultimate goal of making the section, if not friendly, then at least clearer for new and journeymen Kodi users. We’ve also made it possible to point Kodi to new media sources from the settings menu, a requested feature for many years.

Update to Linux Kernel 4.8 RC3 on Linux Mint and Ubuntu Derivatives


Linux kernel 4.8 RC3 was released, how to update / upgrade on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04

Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.

Includes powerful features

Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Initially designed only for 386/486-based computers, now Linux supports a wide range of architectures, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), ARM, ARM64, DEC Alpha, MIPS, SUN Sparc, PowerPC, as well as Amiga and Atari machines.

Linus Torvalds announced today the third weekly test release of the Linux 4.8 kernel, which is currently codenamed the Psychotic Stoned Sheep.

In addition to the routine bug/regression fixes, Linux 4.8-rc3 also introduces a new driver: the Skylake EDAC driver. The rest of the work appears pretty normal for being mid-way through the kernel development cycle.

The 4.8-rc3 announcement can be read via the kernel mailing list.

New Operating System From Google, Called "Fuchsia"


A team at Google is working on a new operating system called "Fuchsia," according to information that recently turned up on Github, but details are sparse.

Google appears to have started work on a completely new operating system, but no one knows quite what it's for. The project's name is Fuchsia, and it currently exists as a growing pile of code on the search giant's code depository and on GitHub, too. The fledgling OS has a number of interesting features, but so far Google has yet to comment on its intended function. All we really know is that this looks like a fresh start for Google, as the operating system does not use the Linux kernel — a core of basic code that underpins both Android and Chrome OS.

So what is Fuchsia for? There have been a number of suggestions. Some people think it could be used to "unify" Chrome OS and Android into a single operating system (a plan that was first rumored last year, with the new OS said to be scheduled for a 2017 release), while others say it could be used to power hardware like Google's OnHub router or third-party Internet of Things devices.


Enter “Fuchsia.” Google’s own description for it on the project’s GitHub page is simply, “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)”. Not very revealing, is it? When you begin to dig deeper into Fuchsia’s documentation, everything starts to make a little more sense.

First, there’s the Magenta kernel based on the ‘LittleKernel’ project. Just like with Linux and Android, the Magenta kernel powers the larger Fuchsia operating system. Magenta is being designed as a competitor to commercial embedded OSes, such as FreeRTOS or ThreadX.

However, Magenta is designed to scale much better, enabling Magenta to work on embedded devices, smartphones, and desktop computers. For this to happen, Magenta improves upon its LittleKernel base by adding first class user-mode support (a necessity for user accounts) and a capability-based security model (which would enable something like Android 6.0’s permissions to work).


We know it has support for both 32-bit and 64-bit ARM CPUs, as well as 64-bit PCs. If you have the technical prowess, you can even compile it yourself and run it on a real PC or a virtual machine. Travis Geiselbrecht from Google also confirmed it will soon be available for the Raspberry Pi 3.

BlackArch Linux 2016.08.19 Has Released and Available For Download


BlackArch Linux is an open source distribution of Linux derived from the lightweight and powerful Arch Linux operating system and designed from the ground up to be used by security professionals for penetration testing tasks.

Distributed as Live DVDs for mainstream architectures
While the distribution can be installed on top of an existing Arch Linux installation (see below for details), the main attraction are the Live DVDs, which support both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platforms.

BlackArch is based on the famous, lightweight and highly customizable Arch Linux operating system, so the new ISO also contains all the security and software updates released since the May announcement of the previous ISO image.

Therefore, BlackArch team is proud to announce that they now have more than 1,500 tools available in the latest ISO image released today, along with updates to the BlackArch Linux installer, all the in-house built tools and system packages.

"Today we released new BlackArch Linux ISOs. The new ISOs include over 1500 tools," reads the announcement. "We wish to thank all of BlackArch's users, mirrors, and supporters. Thanks for your help."

  • updated BlackArch Linux installer
  • added more than 100 new tools
  • updated all blackarch tools
  • updated all system packages
  • updated menu entries for window managers (awesome, fluxbox, openbox)

Over 1,900 packages are now available for BlackArch

But that's not all that has been added in the new BlackArch Linux ISO, as it also serves more than 1,900 packages, updated menu entries for the Openbox, Fluxbox, and awesome window managers, as well as the recently released Linux 4.7.1 kernel.

Install MPV 0.19.0 Video Player on Linux Mint & Ubuntu Derivatives


MPV 0.19.0 Video Player was released, how to update / upgrade on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04

mpv is an open source project that provides users with a command-line video playback software forked from the well known MPlayer and mplayer2 applications. It is very lightweight and runs on the GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms.

Features at a glance

Key features include better support for MKV (Matroska) files, streamlined CLI options, GPU video decoding, high quality video output, precise seeking support, gapless audio support, better PulseAudio support, as well as an on screen controller.

In addition, it features better pause handling, VDPAU improvements, support for modifier keys, correct color reproduction, better handling of audio and video synchronization, high quality subtitles, as well as support for playing multiple files at the same time.

Another interesting feature of mpv is the ability to play video files a higher quality than many other open source multimedia player applications, simply because it relies on the FFmpeg’s hwaccel APIs (supporting VAAPI, VDA and VDPAU video decode acceleration).

Install Latest QupZilla on Ubuntu / Linux Mint / Fedora / Mageia and Debian


Install Latest QupZilla on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04, Fedora 22, Fedora 23 and Fedora 24, Debian 6, Debian 7, Debian 8, Mageia 5, Mageia 6

QupZilla is a new and very fast QtWebEngine browser. It aims to be a lightweight web browser available through all major platforms. This project has been originally started only for educational purposes. But from its start, QupZilla has grown into a feature-rich browser.

QupZilla has all standard functions you expect from a web browser. It includes bookmarks, history (both also in sidebar) and tabs. Above that, you can manage RSS feeds with an included RSS reader, block ads with a builtin AdBlock plugin, block Flash content with Click2Flash and edit the local CA Certificates database with an SSL Manager.

QupZilla's main aim is to be a very fast and very stable QtWebKit browser available to everyone. There are already a lot of QtWebKit browsers available, but they are either bound to the KDE environment (rekonq), are not actively developed or very unstable and miss important features. But there is missing a multiplatform, modern and actively developed browser. QupZilla is trying to fill this gap by providing a very stable browsing experience.

Homesite: http://www.qupzilla.com
Development Blog: http://blog.qupzilla.com

Ubuntu (and other Ubuntu-based linux distros) users can install QupZilla by running these commands
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qupzilla

For Fedora 22, Fedora 23 and Fedora 24

Maui Linux 1 Released, based on Kubuntu and using the KDE SC desktop


The Netrunner project has discontinued its Kubuntu-based edition and replaced it with a new distribution, called Maui Linux, which uses KDE neon as a base. The first release of the new distribution, version 1, is built on a lon-term support (LTS) base, but it is expected to provide cutting edge versions of KDE software in a semi-rolling release model.

What is MAUI ?

Maui Linux is a desktop Linux distribution based on KDE neon and featuring KDE's Plasma desktop. It was created in August 2016 as a continuation of Netrunner's Kubuntu-based "Desktop" edition, but it was re-based on KDE neon which is a more cutting-edge project with frequent updates and a semi-rolling release model. Besides providing a KDE-centric distribution with many popular KDE packages included on the live DVD, the project also focuses on integrating non-KDE software, such as Firefox, Thunderbird or VLC with the underlying infrastructure of the Plasma desktop.

The biggest underlying change has been rebasing Netrunner on Kubuntu to Maui on KDE neon (Xenial LTS).

That means Maui will now be receiving continous updates and support until the next LTS in 2018.

During that timeframe, we plan to release updated ISO versions every 3-4 months with the latest of Plasma software and other updates.

Maui 1 starts with shipping the following software versions (excerpt):
  • Linux Kernel 4.4.0~36
  • Plasma 5.7.3 on Qt5.7.0
  • Frameworks 5.24
  • KDE Applications 16.04.3
  • Firefox 48.0
  • Thunderbird 38.6.0
  • LibreOffice 5
  • Virtualbox 5
  • VLC 2.2.2
  • Gmusicbrowser 1.1.15
  • Kamoso 3.2

How to : Update Linux Kernel 4.7.1 (stable) on Linux Mint and Ubuntu Derivatives

Linux kernel 4.7.1 stable was released, how to update / upgrade on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04

Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.

Includes powerful features
Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Initially designed only for 386/486-based computers, now Linux supports a wide range of architectures, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), ARM, ARM64, DEC Alpha, MIPS, SUN Sparc, PowerPC, as well as Amiga and Atari machines.

How to : Update Linux Kernel 4.8 RC2 on Linux Mint 18 and Ubuntu 16.04


Linux kernel 4.8 (RC2) was released, how to update / upgrade on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf, Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04

The diffstat for rc2 looks unusual, in that only about 1/6th is drivers (normally drivers account for about half the bulk of the updates). Instead, it's dominated by arch updates, and fs/ and mm/. But that's most likely just because the fixes to the bigger driver areas haven't started trickling in yet - rc2 tends to be a quiet period after the craziness that is the merge window.

And the reason mm/ stands out is mainly just because of a pull request from the merge window that I had delayed until after rc1 in order to look more at it.

So I expect that things will be back to normal this upcoming week.

Nothing really strange seems to be going on, so please just go out and test it and report any problems you encounter. It's obviously fairly early in the rc series, but I don't think there was anything particularly worrisome this merge window, so don't be shy..
