GNU Linux-Libre 5.3 Kernel Arrives for Those Seeking 100% Freedom for Their PCs

Packed with all the new features of the recently released Linux 5.3 kernel series, including support for Intel Speed Select, support for AMD Radeon Navi graphics cards, and support for Zhaoxin x86 processors, the GNU Linux-libre 5.3 kernel is here for those seeking 100% freedom for their PCs by not including any proprietary drivers or firmware. GNU Linux-libre 5.3 kernel adjusts already cleaned up drivers for updated blob names embedded in the upstream Linux kernel sources, and disables blob loading in several new drivers, including Allegro-DVT, DRM (HDCP), Meson-VDEC, and QCOM. Unfortunately, Meson-VDEC’s sources were supposed to be freely available from the LibreELEC project, but they aren’t.
