    The kernel will not be pushed unless it's considered to be stable. Kernels that have not been pushed yet are still in testing. Are you experiencing a problem? If so, you should ask about the actual problem that you are facing and provide details about that problem. If you have encountered a bug, you should file a bug report

  • FWIW I am running kernel 5.13.12 with NVidia 470.63.01 with no issues...

  • @andrew.46 thanks for the suggestion. but i have 1 question, how do i install that kernel? I'm used to installing like sudo apt install linux-image-5.x.x-x-generic but when i try to install that kernel i dosen't work. Aug 26 at 10:16
  • @SuperVidak64 I confess that I build my own kernels, this gives greater flexibility with such things...
