Solus Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.9.24 LTS, New Repo Sync Tool Coming Soon

This Week In Solus Install 43 delivers both good and bad news to Solus users. We’ll start with the good news, as the distribution is now powered by the Linux 4.9.24 LTS kernel, and the ypkg build tool was updated to version 21, a maintenance release that adds a few improvements. The solbuild build system has been updated as well, and it’s now compatible with the latest libgit2 library. The upower abstraction layer for power management on Linux-based operating systems has been synced with the latest Git version to resolve some “critical actions,” and lots of packages received new versions. As for the bad news, it looks like the Wayland session was temporarily disabled in GDM and gnome-session due to some hardware incompatibilities.
