Above is a “same day” response from Emma to an issue I reported on Cecilia’s System76 AIO (all in one) desktop PC. The PC is out of it’s 1 year warranty but with System76, they continue to provide software support for the life of the PC (at no cost to the customer).
The issue was a Canonical update that issued a flawed kernel in response to the Meltdown/Spectre fiasco.
I’ll provide more detail at our club meeting for the 4 other Linux users in case this is or was an issue for them also.
Following is the agenda for our club meeting this Saturday 13 January 2018:
- Tech Update (Greg)
- How to create a post on the OTC website (a brief refresher) (Greg)

Yet another nail in the coffin for PC’s still running a 32 bit OS. So, if there are several club members who still want to run 32 bit . . . . might want to start planning an upgrade to current technology.
This decision will affect all 32-bit systems i.e. Linux, FreeBSD, Microsoft Window 7, Microsoft Windows 8/8.1, and Microsoft Windows 10.
