Update to Linux Kernel 4.13 RC6 on Ubuntu Systems

Update to Linux Kernel 4.13 RC6 on Ubuntu Systems. Ubuntu users can download and install Kernel 4.13 RC6. The sixth weekly release Kernel 4.13 RC6 brings many regression and bug fixes.

Announcing the release of Kernel 4.13 RC6, Linus Torvalds wrote:

Things have been pretty calm, and rc6 is out there. Nothing particular really stands out – it all looks normal, with just under half of the patch being drivers (networking stands out, but there’s infiniband, sound and misc other things too), a third of the rest being arch updates, and the rest is just misc more or less core stuff all over.

The appended shortlog is about as descriptive as anything else. It’s short enough that you can easily skim through it to see if there is something particular you might be interested in. So everything still looks on target for a normal release schedule, which would imply rc7 next weekend, and then the final 4.13 the week after that.

Unless something happens, of course. Tomorrow is the solar eclipse, and maybe it brings doom and gloom even beyond the expected Oregon trafficalypse. You never know.
