    How is that new kernel working out for you guys? I am interested in updating my kernel base.

    Any outstanding bugs? Besides the poster above?

    I've seen no bugs, except the no-ethernet bug still here.

    This is the first kernel where my system76's brightness keys work out of the box

    No problems with this kernel so far, works great.

    I think rc5 has the "brick your UEFI Samsung laptop" problem.
    rc6 has now been released which fixes this.
