    A new set of secure kernels are now available in antiX buster repos.
    Sid/testing and antiX-17 stretch versions are being built so users of those versions will have to wait a day or so.

    Kernel versions: 4.4.240, 4.9.240, 4.19.152 and 5.8.16

    All users are strongly advised to upgrade.

    Thank you very much!

    For some reason, I do not see the ‘*4.19*’ in the package list yet.
    antix 19.2 stable, full, 64-bit; I did run ‘sudo apt[-get|itute] update’; the latest I see is ‘linux-image-4.19.143-‘.

    Question: Will the “Announcement” panel at the main forum site be updated once the sid/testing versions are available?
    I mean the Please read: *updated 07 May 2020* security-kernel-upgrades.

    I am running antiX 17 (32 bit).
    I am having problems with the new 4.9.240. After installing it with Synaptic, it takes 125 seconds to go from login to my desktop. Kernel 4.9.221 takes 10 seconds to go from login to desktop.
    Is this normal? Can I do anything to fix this problem?

    Here is my system information:

    @greyowl That is not normal. Have you tried the latest 4.4.240 version?
    It might work better on old hardware.

    Done!

    All fixed kernels are in the main repos. You may need to wait for the mirrors to sync.

    I have been experimenting with 4.9.240. It seems that after I enter the password to login, then the laptop quits processing. If I hit any key, then it starts processing again and opens the desktop in about 16 seconds.

    I haven’t tried 4.4.240, but I will do that now and report back.

    Thanks for the help.

    I found in Synaptic the following:
    linux-headers-4.4.240-antix.1-686-smp-pae and linux-image-4.4.240-antix.1-686-smp-pae

    In the past, I have used antix.1-486-smp kernels.
    Is it OK to use antix.1-686-smp-pae?
    Note: I have a 32 bit system.

    Should be ok, but the 486 version has been updated.

    I tried auto login. I got a blank screen and the laptop stopped processing until I started pressing keys to get it going again.

    I tried 4.4.240 antix.1-686-smp-pae. It is working fine–no delay between login and desktop.

    Would it be better to use the 486 version or does it not matter?
    I cannot find the 486 version of 4.4.240 in Synaptic.

    If the 4.4.240 antix.1-686-smp-pae version is working to you satisfaction, keep it.
    You’ll know better after a few days of use.
