    I attempted to install the 32 bit 4.9.160 kernel, using Synaptic.
    The following error message was received on close of process.
    Should I uninstall and try again? Thanks…

    Thanks DaveW.

    Bugfix version being built and will be sent to repos asap. It will have suffix antix2.
    Failure was either due to a corrupt build or upload (uploaded deb is 20MB when it should be c30MB)

    I made a kernel update to 4.19.25 on a Lenovo ThinkCentre M81 system running antiX-17 with testing.
    The update was without any problems and the system runs well.
    However, on booting I get the following error meassage (copy from dmseg) :

    [    1.562741] ima: Allocated hash algorithm: sha1
    [    1.566937] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.571115] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.575116] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.579115] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.583127] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.587102] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.591104] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.595104] ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip
    [    1.604499] rtc_cmos 00:03: setting system clock to 2019-03-01 10:10:01 UTC (1551435001)
    

    The ThinkCentre has a TPM1.2 chip, but I couldn’t find any option to acitvate/disable or access the chip in the BIOS.

    Just wonna inform about the message, but I’m not shure whether this is a bug or something to worry about.

    okay, I found finally a TCG option in the BIOS. The chip is inactive at the moment and I’ll leave it this way.
