Greg Kroah-Hartman: “I’ll be maintaining 4.1 for the next two years, proving that after a decade of doing stable kernels, I still do not know any better.”
See Linux-Kernel Archive: [website PATCH] 4.1 is a longterm kernel.Linus said it a while ago but now it’s official. It’s on the website. 😉 Linux 4.1 will be supported for a couple of years. Yes!
I’ve been using 4.1 for a while and it’s working quite well. I did find a glitch with a reconfiguration of my storage, but it turns out to be a configuration thing, not the kernel. I can’t boot my system without the defective drive in place… I will have to dig deeper, but it won’t boot without the defective drive even with the Debian stock kernel. It’s not the motherboard, either. I can move the defective drive to any interface and the system still boots. Judging by past performance, I should have two years of stable kernels from Greg.
