WTF happened with linux kernel 4.15.0-54? Kernel panic on my lap top?

    Maybe you watched the unlikely event of a memory bit flip caused by cosmic radiation - rare but still possible.

    Of course a programming.maybe issue fixed in later versions might also be the cause as well.

    Really 4.15? It's EOL.

    @sbiewald I blame the cosmic rays more often that I should, honestly.

    How do we even still get kernel panics? Had one today on Mac too caused by virtualbox. Wtf. 🤦🏼‍♂️

    @sbiewald not exactly ancient. At work we have to support RHEL 5.. and I think even current CentOS is still on 3.10 kernel.
    Luckily the kernel was still there and boots. Problem persisted through an apt remove/install of the problematic kernel, so I'd exclude cosmic rays.

    @badcopnodonuts BSOD's on VM on macOS also not uncommon for me.
    On the physical machine tho

    @phorkyas No ancient, but still EOL.

    are the still supported LTS versions.

    @sbiewald Googled it too. 3.10 is dead also. Seems distros don't care "bout which vanilla kernel is LTS?

    @phorkyas Debian uses 4.9 and 4.19.
    I guess 3.10 was the old LTS, but CentOS does not get new releases very often and back ports fixes to older versions.

    4.15's working flawlessly for me, if a tad slow on bootup... (Linux Mint, Kali and Debian Buster repos added for some semblance of updated packages)
