     "The Linux Kernel 3.14.1 is now available for the users and all the users of 3.14 kernel series must upgrade", announced Greg Kroah-Hartman.This Linux Kernel version comes with plenty of fixes and improvements. This article will guide you to install or upgrade to Linux Kernel 3.14.1 in your Ubuntu or Linux Mint system.

Fixes

  • crypto: ghash-clmulni-intel - use C implementation for setkey()
  • m68k: Skip futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic() test 
  • futex: Allow architectures to skip futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic() test 
  • ARC: [nsimosci] Change .dts to use generic 8250 UART 
  • iwlwifi: mvm: rs: fix search cycle rules 
  • net/at91_ether: avoid NULL pointer dereference 
  • rds: prevent dereference of a NULL device in rds_iw_laddr_check 
  • isdnloop: several buffer overflows 
  • isdnloop: Validate NUL-terminated strings from user. 
  • net: vxlan: fix crash when interface is created with no group 
  • xen-netback: disable rogue vif in kthread context 
  • netlink: don't compare the nul-termination in nla_strcmp 
  • ipv6: some ipv6 statistic counters failed to disable bh 
  • xen-netback: BUG_ON in xenvif_rx_action() not catching overflow 
  • xen-netback: worse-case estimate in xenvif_rx_action is underestimating

  5. i have very serius problem when i transfer big files to whatever usb devices regardless the format (i have formatted it to ext4 , ntfs and fat32) but the transfer ratius is ridiculous it comes down to 2MB/S even less however when the files are small the speed is normal, i had tried a lot of things i found around, like disable legacy USB from bios, or modify the fstab to add the options flush and async because some people says it seens to ba a problem with the buffer I also think but still does not go.

  6. Newer conputers have serious problems with 32 bit kernels. For example no hight speed for USB devices. See your dmesg or kernel.log to see the errors. Using 64 bit kernels I didn't see these problems.
    If you are using 32 bit it's time to move to 64 bit.
    Looking for newests kernels because at Acer TM (Travelmate) B115-M I have problems with ACPI. The conputer boots only if grub.cfg has acpi=off
    I saw at Debian forums that 3.14 64 bit solves it.

  7. I got a "kernel panic" when rebooting after installing the new kernel :( (I tried this to solve a broke-video issue)

  8. About my 16-Sept comment...

    Acer TM (Travelmate) B115-M needs UEFI to boot/work/poweroff correctly. So, 64 bit architecture is needed. Running ok with the 14.04 LTS official kernels.

    Now testing Toshiba NB500 (32 bit) with 3.14.1 kernel because RealTek wireless card is unstable:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1268833/comments/35

    The computer seems to work ok with 3.14.1 kernel.
