Previously, when I used to run Ubuntu, then Mint, when a Kernel update come through system updates, it was clear it was [fairly] safe to update the Kernel at that time.
Now I’m running Manjaro, which has a nice feature showing the latest Kernels and allows you to upgrade or fall back to the Kernel of your choosing.
So, my question is; does Manjaro prompt the update of the Kernel when they recommend it, or is it up to the end user to choose when to update manually?
Currently running 4.19, but I see there is 4.20 and the latest; 5.0 now available. After reading through some of the changelogs in the newer versions, I don’t see much benefit for my machine which is running hardware that’s a few years old. Or would there be any other reason I’m not seeing/considering to update to a newer version?
