I upgraded at work from 126.96.36.199. Curiously enough, the lilo problem I had been having (see Mysteries, Puzzles, and Enigmas) at work vanished. Lilo worked great, no weird rescue steps needed.
Everything seemed ok, until I tried to recompile my nvidia driver. It failed on multiple versions of the driver. The nvidia installer log wasn’t much help. I eventually gave up and went back to 18.2 kernel, where nvidia works fine. Same for 18.3.
I suppose if it is a real problem, I’ll learn more about it from other sites soon.
