With external disk attached when upgraded to 4.19 e4defrag commands kills the system:
Seems to be an out of memory condition. Were you running other apps (e.g. browser)?
Does it work when gpu_mem=16 is set in config.txt which gives the arm a bit more memory?

one has to remember to uncomment the fake driver with #dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d in /boot/config.txt to avoid the hang
Latest rpi-update kernel should fix the hang when vc4-fkms is enabled. Fix from here.

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

He's correct since at least yesterday. Not everything is up to 4.19.23. There are many things at (https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware) still showing level at 4.14.94 or .98. The kernel update doesn't directly affect firmware or opt/vc libs. So those files will show the last update commit of when...

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

Whoa just noticed 4.19.23 quite nice, so next image downloads will be based on 4.19 kernels already? :o 4.14 wasn't so long online. The first post says that moving to 4.19 for raspian sdcard images and apt upgrades is the final goal. Currently we're still testing with users on rpi-update kernels. A...

Not really sure what you are saying. That shows the kernel and modules are at 4.19.23.
If you want to test it follow instructions in first post of this thread or you can wait until it reaches apt/raspbian later.

why didn't update firmware still 4.14.94 ?
I think you'll have to explain what you have done to get any help.
Have you run rpi-update? What did it output? Have you rebooted? What does uname -a report?

I've justed tested that OpenVPN bug and it's fixed in 4.19.23+.
Good to hear - it always seemed likely as it was an issue in upstream code that other platforms were likely to hit.

Of course. Using the Pi as a media player is a very common use.
There's more than a million active users of kodi (mostly OSMC and LibreELEC) on Pi.
It's very straightforward to install.

Re: Moving Linux kernel to 4.19

In general we are not keen on backporting commits for new devices not supported by current kernel. That is really a decision for the upstream kernel maintainers. It's not something we can test and sometimes new drivers rely on other new kernel features so it may not be as simple as a single cherry p...

No errors, but nothing happens. Try printing out each of your converter variables. Note: # is a comment character in python, so you are losing some options.

Do you get a kernel panic when it halts? Can you post the output?

Any idea why I get perfect playback from the browser with HD streams (BBC1 HD for example). Are they using an encoder built into the browser? HD streams are mostly H.264. SD streams are mostly MPEG-2 (but both of these vary with location). Sounds like your browser supports H.264 decode but not MPEG...
