Haven't noticed any regressions. Passes default and performance tests on a Renoir laptop.

Cool, looks good. Do we have any ETA on 5.7 tree?

hm, I've seen 5.7 is queued on Koji but not building or appearing here. Is something stuck or just a bit slower due DC move?

User Icon jforbes commented & provided feedback 3 months ago

Those builds are for kernel test week, and not destined for F32 updates quite yet.

User Icon markec commented & provided feedback 3 months ago

Gotcha, thanks!

5.6. being EOL, and the 5.7 tree as advanced as pointrelease .6, wouldn't it be good to extend the 5.7 test week to the audience here and have users with updates-testing enabled test 5.7.6? (not a single bug filed against 5.7.x during ongoing kernel week - sounds like success)

User Icon augenauf commented & provided feedback 3 months ago

more testing can actually only be good. (if bugs surface you just don't push it to stable).

Thermal seems to be be improved. However, sometimes when laptop wakes from suspend it displays black screen. This was not the case on kernel 5.6.18.
