How I know actual kernel stable version on Loki 0.4.1? Actually, my kernel version is Linux 4.10.0-27.

UPDATE: 23/01/2018 - 4.13.0-31-generic #34~16.04.1-Ubuntu

    Unless you have purposely installed a different version elementary will be running the LTS kernel whichever that happens to be at the time.

I believe the most current kernel release is 4.10 is not the LTS kernel.

Ubuntu 16.04 is now on kernel 4.10.x

It has reached 17.04, which is on 4.10x.

Ubuntu will soon release a new ISO of 16.04.3 LTS The Kernel is already out.

So, if you did a dist-upgrade trough the Terminal, you're also on that kernel.


  • Actually the eOS Kernel is the 4.8.0-58, stable for now. Thanks for the explantion. Commented Jul 27, 2017 at 12:53
