New kernels are now available for PCLinuxOS in your choice of version 4.10.13, 4.9.25 LTS and 4.4.65 LTS. All of the kernels provide updated drivers, bug fixes and security updates. PCLinuxOS allows you to install a new kernel next to your existing kernel so you can give it a test drive to make sure it is compatible with your existing hardware. Later if desired you can then remove your old kernel. Please note on first boot of a newly installed kernel may take a few minutes due to building video drivers to run with the new kernel. Later boots will return back to normal boot speed.
