* enyc was about to ask question then answered itself ... "rolling HWE kernel model" =)10:52
enycThough I note 4.9 is the kernel.org LTS version, not 4.8 ....10:53
k1l_doesnt matter. ubuntu got a own kernel team doing the support for the time10:54
k1l_look hat here to understand what this HWE is about: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack#Kernel.2FSupport.A16.04.x_Ubuntu_Kernel_Support10:54
k1l_the change is now, that you cant stay on that 16.10 backports kernel anymore. you are upgraded to the 17.04 bakcports kernel on 16.04.3 automatically.10:55
enyck1l_: that page and linuxd page don't appear to say what GA actually stands for, just what it effectively is10:56
enyck1l_: "The Release Team has also agreed that for 16.04 server images, they will offer both the GA and HWE Kernels."10:59
enyc"The Ubuntu 16.04 LTS release ships with a standard Ubuntu v4.4 kernel. It is commonly referred to as the GA kernel and is supported "11:00
enycGA looks suspiciously like an acronym ;p11:00
k1l_the original 16.04 kernel11:00
k1l_if you look at the link i showed you you will see the difference from 16.04 compared to the LTS releases before11:02
enycyes it does11:02
enycbut it doesn't say what G and A actualyl stood for anywhere11:02
DJonesenyc: GA = General Availability11:31
DJonesFrom http://askubuntu.com/questions/248914/what-is-hardware-enablement-hwe "Ubuntu will offer at least two kernels: the General Availability (GA) kernel, i.e. the most stable kernel, which does not get updated to point releases; and the Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel"11:32
