Hello, We have recently started the stabilization of gentoo-sources-4.14.8.
Very soon we received reports regarding broken e1000e driver  and moved to gentoo-sources-4.14.8-r1. Since then we keep receiving new problems related to 4.14.x kernel: - IPSec is broken  - Change in 4.14.9 broke nVIDIA driver  - Colors on console are broken with some Radeon HD cards  - BUG report on boot  - Unbootable system with CONFIG_MCORE2  - ...more bugs  While not all issues are present in gentoo-sources-4.14.8-r1 we are concerned about the current stability/quality of the 4.14.x branch in general and don't feel comfortable recommending 4.14.x branch for general use at the moment. But that's what a stable USE flag means for most Gentoo users. So, for now, we have decided to drop gentoo-sources-4.14.x stable keywords. We will keep watching 4.14 branch and once the stability/quality matches our requirements we will restart stabilization. Keep in mind: We are only dropping stable USE flags. If gentoo-sources-4.14.x works for you and you want to keep it, just keyword the package on your own!  https://bugs.gentoo.org/641818  https://bugs.gentoo.org/642454  http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1712.3/00099.html  https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198273  https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/12/25/177  https://bugs.gentoo.org/642268  https://bugzilla.kernel.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&f1=cf_kernel_version&o1=equals&query_format=advanced&v1=4.14.8 -- Thanks, Alice Ferrazzi Gentoo Kernel Project Leader Gentoo Foundation Board Member Mail: Alice Ferrazzi <ali...@gentoo.org> PGP: 2E4E 0856 461C 0585 1336 F496 5621 A6B2 8638 781A
