Update Channels & Kernel Version
#1
Thank you to the UBPorts developers for all the hard work creating a stable operating system with a very nice user interface.



I'm wondering about the kernel versions that are in each upgrade channel.


  • The stable channel (18 March 2021) has kernel version 5.6.0
  • The Kernel Upgrade has kernel version 5.10.19
  • The Development channel (versions 439-448) has kernel version 5.6.0

I would expect the Development Channel to have the most up-to-date components, including the kernel.



I'm currently using the Development Channel which today is version 448. The system is very stable (no lockups like I experience in Mobian), the alarm clock works overnight, and the user interface is very responsive.



The issue I'm most interested in is the modem. - It will work fine for some time, and I am able to send/receive SMS and telephone calls. But, then sometime later (maybe 1 or 2 hours, maybe 10 minutes) I can't send/receive SMS or telephone calls. Maybe this issue is not kernel related, but an issue with the modem manager.





Thanks.

This is a problem that is devs are working on.

@drpi Thanks.

I did learn by watching/listening to Ubuntu Touch Q&A Episode 96 that the 5.10 kernel in the Kernel Upgrade Channel prevents the camera from being functional.
