The eighty-seven installment of the 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup is here for the week ending on May 29th, 2022, keeping you guys up to date with the most important things that are happening in the Linux world. If you missed last week’s 9to5Linux Weekly Roundup, catch up with things here.

Thank you!

Thank everyone for yet another fabulous week! Thank you for all your likes, shares, retweets, comments, suggestions, tips, and whatnot. I also want to welcome all our new followers on all social media channels where we have a presence, as well as to give a big shout-out to all our previous donors. Thank you!

This week we got some great news, starting with the arrival of AlmaLinux 9 as a pure replacement for CentOS Linux, and continuing with a major Clonezilla Live release for all your disk cloning/imaging needs, as well as a new major Alpine Linux release for fans of minimal, security-oriented distros.

PulseAudio fans also got a new major release of this open-source sound server that brought various enhancements and bug fixes, Arch Linux newcomers got an updated menu-based installer with lots of goodies, and Ubuntu users received a new important Linux kernel security update.

On top of that, I show you how to install the latest and greatest Linux 5.18 kernel on Ubuntu and Ubuntu-based distributions and talk about the upcoming Ubuntu Core 22 distribution for IoT, as well as the GUADEC 22 conference. Below, you can enjoy these and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux Weekly Roundup for May 29th, 2022.
