Today I got it.

» lsb_release -a                               
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: elementary
Description:    elementary OS 0.4.1 Loki
Release:        0.4.1
Codename:       loki
» apt show intel-microcode | grep Version

Version: 3.20180108.0~ubuntu16.04.2

as of kernel. I personally have

» uname -a                                                                                                  127 ↵
Linux darkstar 4.13.0-26-generic #29~16.04.2-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jan 9 22:00:44 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

(fresh install) as per apt search linux-image I see plenty of kernels there, I should be able to install something appropriate

  • Tnx for the info got it to now ^^
