GNU Linux-Libre 5.2 Kernel Released for Those Seeking 100% Freedom for Their PCs

The GNU Linux-libre project has released the GNU Linux-libre 5.2 kernel, a 100% free version of the Linux kernel that doesn’t include any proprietary drivers, firmware, or code.

Based on the recently released Linux 5.2 kernel series, which introduces the Sound Open Firmware support for DSP audio devices, the GNU Linux-libre 5.2 kernel also ships with the open-source firmware, which wasn’t included in previous versions of the GNU Linux-libre kernel because they were overlooked.

“I had not realized the SOF files were Free Software in recent earlier releases, so the requests for these files were disabled in them,” said developer Alexandre Oliva in a mailing list announcement. “Only while cleaning up the new kernel module specifically devoted to SOF-supporting devices did I realize my mistake.”

The GNU Linux-libre 5.2 kernel also deblobs several new drivers, including btmtksdio, iqs5xx, is… (read more)

Linux Lite Users Are the First to Try Linux Kernel 5.2, Here’s How to Install It

As of last night, Linux kernel 5.2 is out and Linux Lite users are once again among the first to install it on their computers to enjoy all the new features and improvements.

Linux kernel 5.2 also improves resource monitoring for Android devices, adds some notable performance improvements to the BFQ I/O scheduler, allows case-insensitive names in the EXT4 file system, and introduces a new, arch-independent “mitigations=” boot option to make it easier to enable and disable mitigations for CPU vulne… (read more)

Linux Kernel 5.2 Officially Released, Here’s What’s New

Linus Torvalds has announced today the release and general availability of the Linux 5.2 kernel series, a major release that adds several new features, updated drivers, and many improvements.

After seven RCs (Release Candidates), the Linux 5.2 kernel  series is now available and it comes with some very interesting features and enhancements. However, before we dive into what’s new, you should know that this release is not a long-term supported (LTS) branch, which means that you stick with your current LTS kernel instead.

“I was somewhat pre-disposed towards making an rc8, simply because of my travels and being entirely off the internet for a few days last week,” said Linus Torvalds in a mailing list announcement. “So despite a fairly late core revert, I don’t see any real reason for another week of rc, and so we have a v5.2 with the normal release timing.”
