For now we're sticking with the LTS kernel, and in future we'll allow the stable branch too. For now we could backport Skylake fixes to our 4.4.x if you can
point me at the changes
LOL, I have no idea. I know that some of the changes in 4.6.3 where reverted because everything was fixed in 4.7 but that means nothing. I went to the kernel archives and browsed on the 4.7 kernel to see the changes related to "DRM/i915" (I'm unsure this helps you at all, likely not):

Sorry :?

I'll pastebin the results of my dmesg when i log in later this afternoon. Hopefully that'll provide some insight as to what is going on. Wish i had a little more knowledge to at least point you guys in the right direction.

Deal with it. 8-)

Thanks for the response Ikey! Not gonna lie I do notice the speed and stability of Solus is like nothing I've found in other distros.
Keep up the good work!

Nothing beats a rolling distribution, and if the Solus team can keep it as fast and stable as it right now it will become the best distribution out there.

Love the work so far. Thanks for LMDE, too. Not a big fan of Ubuntu, mostly the direction they've gone, so when I saw LMDE, was pretty stoked.

Anyhow, I'm just wondering how switching to a rolling release will affect 1.2 users? Is there going to be an opt-in of some sort, like an upgrade, or will this switch happen seamlessly if we're already installed?

When you update Solus 1.2, you will upgrade to 4.7 kernel, gnome 3.20 and qt 5.6. There's nothing to opt-in to, there's nothing to opt-out of.

I see I'm at kernel 4.7. So that's it, then, ready to roll?
