Creator of Linux Kernel, Linus Torvalds announced the roll out of Linux Kernel 6.0 RC5 with minor bug fixes and enhancements. The final version of Kernel 6.0 is anticipated to arrive two weeks following the release of fifth release candidate
Linux Kernel 6.0 rc5 update incorporates fixes for drivers and GPU enhancements including RDMA, AMD-IOMMU, networking, sound, SCSI storage, etc. To summarize, the update is fairly normal with quite a few changes and enhacements.
Linus Torvalds said,
“Things look fairly normal for the rc5 timeframe, at least in the number of commits, and in the diffstat.
A bit over half the diff is drivers: GPU, rdma, iommu, networking, sound, scsi… A little bit of everything.
The rest is the usual random fixes, with i2c doc updates standing out, but also various DT updates, a few filesystem fixes (btrfs and erofs), some core networking, and some tooling (perf and selftests).
Nothing looks particularly scary, so jump right in.”
Lastly, we suggest that you install the Linux Kernel 6.0 rc5 update on a test system. You can download the update from the below link:
