[SOLVED] When will 5.13 kernel be available?

Is there an estimate for when 5.13 kernel will be available in Devuan packages?

Re: [SOLVED] When will 5.13 kernel be available?

I'm using 5.18 from bpo (backports)

linux-image-5.18.0-0.bpo.1-amd64-unsigned_5.18.2-1~bpo11+1_amd64.deb

That kernel version will never be available for the current stable release. The kernel only gets backported security & bug fixes after the release, no (major) version bumps are provided.

@GlennW

Thanks for that. I've never used Debian backports. I guess I just add "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye-backports main" to sources.list.


@Head_on_a_Stick

So the philosophy for Devuan (and Debian, I assume) is to release one kernel with the original release? That explains why the only available kernel is 5.10.

It is never a good idea to use Debian repositories directly. All "safe" Debian packages are available through the Devuan repositories at  deb.devuan.org. You might want to have a look at this page.

just chimaera-backports...

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged/ chimaera-backports main non-free contrib

Beowulf

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged/ beowulf-backports main non-free contrib

I remember when odd-numbered kernel versions were unstable.

@golinux and GlennW

Thanks for the warning, as I was already looking at Debian packages.

I looked at the link, and the packages (https://pkginfo.devuan.org/), but my eyes glazed over at all of the rt, dbg, cloud, etc., images and headers. I'll have more tea and look again.

Only install the linux-image-amd64 package. It always depends on the latest version.
