2021-06-28 Kernel Version 5.13 Available (Updated)

This is a mainline release

As this is a vanilla kernel, change logs are available here: https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.13

As this is a new mainline release, it is currently recommended that most users stay on the 5.12 or 5.10 tree. Please use this for testing. Please note that several 3rd party drivers and tools, such as nVIDIA and ZFS may not support this new tree for a few weeks.

[UPDATE 2:32 PM MST] – nVIDIA Linux Driver 465.xx is confirmed to work with 5.13.0 without issue.

The latest OpenZFS version, only officially supports kernel 5.12 as of the date of this writing: https://github.com/openzfs/zfs/releases

To install this kernel, open the terminal window or login to a command prompt as a user with sudo privileges.

Type the following:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-image-5.13-amd64-vanilla

If you need the headers installed, don’t forget to install the linux-headers-5.13-amd64-vanilla package…

It is generally not recommended to install mainline kernels on production systems. Stable and Longterm are recommended in these cases, depending on specific needs.

If using OpenZFS, only the Longterm kernels are recommended.
