nothing special. Except of a flaw in glibc is everything fine.

No issues. Very happy. I haven’t been able to boot the 4.19 lts since I think .50? It’s a kernal bug on amd vega 56/64 desktop cards. :+1:

With this new lts-kernel i don’t see a reason for using kernel 5.5. But i have old hardware, so i guess it makes no difference.

I am still in 4.19. How to install the new LTS?

update your mirrorlist … and run sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg after updating…

I done all that. Still the same

So you are saying you had the old lts kenel 4.19 installed and then updated and still have 4.19?

yes

Odd. Well according to the arch wiki the latest LTS is 5.4.19-1. Sorry for being naive are you sure you are reading the output correctly?

Sorry my mistake. I have now update my mirrors correctly and now the update came. All good. Sorry for the mess

Hi,
I would like to install the latest LTS kernel on my freshly installed EOS because of a problem with the webcam in my laptop.
‘sudo pacman -S linux-lts’ gives me linux-lts-5.4.28-1 to be installed. This fails however because of error 404.
Here is my /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist (I had already added worldwide to see if that would prevent 404)

# With:       reflector -c NO --protocol https --protocol http --age 8 --sort rate --number 10

What can I do?

Did you try ensuring your system is up-to-date first? You may be getting 404s because you are trying to access a package that no longer exists.

sudo pacman -Syu linux-lts
