so no AMD Ryzen with vega until next wave of alphas in kodi 19?

Yes, as things stand LibreELEC 9.0 will be released with 4.14.y, as that's the current LTS kernel.

LibreELEC 10.0 will (probably) use the next LTS kernel (4.19.y, maybe 4.20.y) once it becomes available, but that kernel may not be released for another 12 months or more. Kodi 19 could be around before the next LTS is released in which case LE 10 alphas will continue with the old LTS (without support for Ryzen/Vega).  
I see.
That seems like an odd decision to me that something that lies in the forefront on multimedia Kodi /LibreElec should choose to use a potentially dated kernel.
Isn't LTS kernels really meant for enterprises running on servers?

So a potentially really nice (for HTPC purposes at least) processor family might be entirely missed by LibreElec as the current family (Ryzen 3/5 2x00g) might be irrelevant by the time that it is in the LTS kernel that LibreElec will support?
If my post helped you then there is a nice "Thank user" button on the bottom of the post.
