Kernel 5.12

Post by xeno74 »

FYI:
5.12 Merge window delayed

[Posted February 16, 2021 by corbet]
Those of us who are watching the mainline kernel repository may have been wondering why it appears that no pull requests for the 5.12 merge window have yet been acted upon. The problem, it seems, is power outages caused by the severe winter weather in the US Pacific northwest. Until that gets resolved, which could take a few days, the 5.12 merge window is likely to remain on hold.

Kernel 511 seemed to be all I needed, but I decided, what the heck, let's give 5-12 a shot. It seems to work, so far.
