    It’s a fancy number, but the release only fixes some wifi regressions. Nothing wild.

      I mean, wifi drivers have to be made from demonic arts.

        6.6.5 has been a massive pain in the ass with the MTK wifi in my asus g14. very happy this got released quickly, no more deadlocks!

      I had been trying out Linux and finally decided to install it to my ssd. The timing ended up such that I got the wifi issues on the new install but not my old one, and they basically make the OS unusable. I didn’t realise any of this and am new so did heaps of reinstalling and searching trying to figure out what had gone wrong since it was all fine when it was installed on my HDD.

      I finally found some forum posts and bug reports about this after wasting a day assuming it was something I’d done wrong 😂.

      Gonna stick to lts kernel from now on I think. 6.6.6 seemed pretty fitting to me, even if it was 6.6.5 that actually broke it.
