Hi everybody.

Only to know.
I'm using well gentoo-sources-4.14.15 which is out of portage.

What version are you using? Considering any version above 4.9 is set stable.

Many thanks.

Andrea

If 4.14.15 works for you then just update to 4.14.36.

Sorry and thank you, thank you and sorry, but why not 4.17.37 as per https://www.kernel.org/? My humble thought.

Did you mean 4.14.37 instead of 4.17.37?

Probably because 4.14.37 wasn't yet in portage tree (added 30 hours ago)

Indeed I don't retroactively update version numbers in my posts.

Which is the theory behind kernel version stabilisation choice? is the last long-term version a good choice?

In general what works well for your hardware is a good choice, beyond that you do not have to care about using the latest kernel branch *as long as* it is receiving frequent updates to fix security and other issues. So any long-term version is a natural choice, if your hardware allows for that choice.
