Kernel 3.18 – Another Lockup – Back to 3.16.7! — 3 Comments

  1. Did you get a chance to test 3.19 for the lock-up issue? My desktop was badly affected by this and I don’t think it is HPET related.

    Thank you.

    • I changed my kernel config under ‘Processor types and features’ from ‘Preemptible Kernel’ to ‘Voluntary Kernel Preemption’ and have never had any more lockups… This had been suggested in one of the (many) comments in the kernel mailing list, some time back.. This was for kernel 3.18.4 onwards, and (so far…) is still OK with 3.19.0..
