New kernels to test, an advisory will follow...
Aorus X5 laptop
mga6 x86_64 EFI boot on multiboot system
16 GB RAM
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5700HQ CPU @ 2.70GHz
2 x nvidia GeForce GTX 965M
Installed the 3 packages and ran drakboot.
nvidia-current rebuilt during reboot.
Ran the usual battery of tests.
During stress tests the temperature went dangerously high - 92°C, because firefox was misbehaving again, as it does on every installation now. It settled down and the machine seems to be OK. Mate is running fine.
subject: Updated kernel-tmb packages fixes security and other bugs
This kernel-tmb update is based on upstream 4.9.40 and fixes atleast the
following security issues:
Linux kernel built with the VirtIO GPU driver(CONFIG_DRM_VIRTIO_GPU) support
is vulnerable to a memory leakage issue. It could occur while creating a
virtio gpu object in virtio_gpu_object_create(). A user/process could use
this flaw to leak host kernel memory potentially resulting in Dos
It also contains followup fixes to the Stack Clash (CVE-2017-1000370,
CVE-2017-1000371) security issues resolved in kernels released at end
of June, 2017.
Other Mageia kernel specific fixes in this updates:
- enable support for NFS4_1 and NFS4_2 (mga#21182)
- ALSA: hda/realtek - New codecs support for ALC215/ALC285/ALC289
- ALSA: hda/realtek - New codec device ID for ALC1220
- platform/x86: asus-nb-wmi: Add wapf4 quirk for the X302UA (mga#18756)
For other upstream fixes in this update, read the referenced changelogs.
MGA6-32 on Asus A6000VM MATE with propietary nvidia
No installtion issues.
After reboot all usual suspects are OK: Office documents, video playing, access to NFS shares and wifi printer. OK fro me
Acer Aspire ES 11 MGA 6 64 After installation I have not noticed regressions
OK for me
It's tested enough to validate...
I need theese out of the way as I need to start releasing new kernels for test as there is a new root exploit on the way...
Added OK's and validated
advisory MGA6-64-OK MGA6-32-OK
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
