Which kernel version do you need to hold? You can update a subset of packages by giving them as arguments to qubes-dom0-update, but I would like to know what the forseeable problems are.
The reason is simple: all (!) 5.x xen kernels I tested so far crash/freeze my system in less than 5 minutes, often only seconds (open issue on github since 18 months). Therefore I keep a 4.19 kernel for xen (only) -- until now the updater respected that: it installed some new 5.x kernel and kernel-latest. Every single time, I bravely try them out, and each time they crash: each time I can revert back to 4.19 by a linux-life usb hack. Last kernel update wants to remove my 4.19 kernel, and no way I can accept that, given the history. ( again a curse on Intel and Dell for their buggy hardware ). best, Bernhard -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
