Would @limetechor anyone else in the know comment on whether a 6.8 release candidate will only be released once the SQLite issue is resolved?

 

im eagerly awaiting 6.8 for the performance issue resolution now confirmed for this version. The SQLite issue has luckily never impacted me. It sounds like a nightmare issue though!

It will be release soon™ and I believe users experiencing the SQL issue will be asked to try it, since there are changes to the md driver, also a much newer kernel, etc.

Hope it includes a fix/bandaid for the amd reset bug which is driving me insane.

I assume they are talking about AMD's BIOS issues in AMD GPU's that don't fully reset when passed through to a VM that shuts down / reboots. Underlying unraid needs to be rebooted to cycle the GPU. This has been around for a while, and I think was deemed an AMD issue.

This is the patch I added:

great stuff !!!

Looking forward to the final version.  Cant test the rc's as have multiple zfs pools running and zfs plugin need to first support the next release before i can move ahead.

But again great to hear you guys are on the top of it as always. Moving into the unraid world has been an extremely satisfying and landscape transforming experience for me.

Thanks to @limetech and @johnnie.black for weighing in. Very much looking forward to the RC's when soon™ arrives. Hopefully it also fixes the SQLite corruption for the portion of the community it affects as well who have been/are affected by the performance issues documented thoroughly elsewhere were delighted to hear that 6.8 solves that particular issue.

 

we all await it's release to give it a thorough going over!
