Hmmm... What exactly is the difference between those two kernels?

As you may have seen in the other thread. The one in the official repos fails to work on my system when using nvidia-current (285 and 290) as have all of the 'official' 3.2 kernels. Oddly, the rc4 that Paul linked works fine.

:confused:

The kernels in ppa mainline are vanilla AFAIK - i.e. they don't have the ubuntu "sauce" that you'll see mentioned in the changelogs.

3.2.0-3.8 (amd64) is apparently building at the moment and should come through as an update soon.

Doesn't say so explicitly, but it will presumably be based on rc4.

Same symptoms:

So, apparently it's some patch/build-option that Canonical is adding that's causing the issue with my video.

Launchpad seems to be timing out quite a bit right now, so I'll go do my Machine Learning homework anf file a bug for it tomorrow.

But weren't you saying in the other thread that there was some suggestion the nvidia driver is buggy with cards that have larger amounts of RAM? If a newer kernel is still loading the same graphics driver it's not necessarily going to start working correctly. Or maybe I misunderstood what you were saying?

EDIT: You did say it was working with the 3.1 kernels so it could be related to a regression in 3.2 or maybe the problem was "masked" by a bug in 3.1 that has been fixed in 3.2.

Heh! I installed 3 different Linux 3.2.x kernels yesterday.

Every one of them failed on this machine. Same ol' thing:


No network service, e.g. no Internet
Hangs on shutdown, e.g. cannot reboot

Other than that, 3.2.x works fine. :D

Yes, there were posts to that effect, but it was still pretty nebulous as to whether or not I was running in to the same problem as those guys, as at least one of them had an additional message in their kernel log that indicated a vmap issue. And, the fact that the rc4 kernel works fine makes it really murky to me as to whether or not it's the driver after all.

At any rate, I'm going to give them the symptoms/data and see if it makes more sense to them than to me. If they say it's invalid/wont-fix/nvidia's, then I can at least start questioning nVidia as to when their next driver will be available for testing. I'd hate to see 12.04 come out and find that a large number of people with high end hardware can't even start Unity in 3D mode.

I know you're 'talking' to someone else, but...

Linux 3.1.0-2.x / nVidia 285.05.09 works a treat on this machine! Flies like the wind...

I've run all sorts of Kernels on this box, including Unity on top of Liquorix, and never had problems like this.

IMO, there is definitely something amiss in Linux 3.2 ;)

I'm (basically) running a high-end Gaming Machine, circa 2005. LoL!

I suppose we're talking apples n' oranges.

I don't have any problem with my nVidia card / drivers, but...

From everything I've read in this +1 Forum, in various threads, the common denominator appears to be hardware related issues - on both old iron & uber new.

It's akin to Goldilocks & The Three Bears:


This one is too old
This one is too new
But, this one is just right

Oh, ok. I didn't realise it was working for you with 3.2-rc4. We'll have to see what happens with the next nvidia driver...

No problem - thanks for the input. The vagaries of hardware! This box is about 5 years old, but working pretty well. Minimal install + GS + xorg-edgers and ricotz-testings ppas. :)

Yeah... 3.1's worked great for me too... I'm just trying to help troubleshoot this 3.2 weirdness before we get to beta and people notice. :)

I've had USB3.0 issues with 3.2 on this machine also... but the 3.2rc4 kernel linked at the beginning of this thread appears to be working great for me across the board.

On the other hand, I have a CR-48 running the stock 3.2 kernels, and it's never had any trouble whatsoever.

The announcement for 3.2.0-3.7 stated that it was based on rc4.

hi guys,i am three years old into ubuntu and always want to have the latest cutting edge softwares in my ubuntu,so i went ahead and installed the latest kernel following this steps i found and everything worked to a tee,i am very happy about it,i had to remove my nvidia before a rbooted and my nvidia is now recognized as a Gallium 0.4 on NV4C that's weird..but never the less i am happy.
Install latest kernel 32bit by going here:

8-sudo apt-get update
9-sudo apt-get upgrade
10-sudo apt-get install -f
11-see note:sudo reboot.

Note:Remove any Nvidia Drivers before a Reboot.(sudo apt-get remove nvidia*)
good luck

Does the PP official repo version (3.2.0-3.8 rc4) still work OK for you.
They work fine in my setups.

No.

I've tried 3.2.everything, and so far, they've all exhibited the same two problems.

It's almost like Linux 3.2x doesn't support whatever onboard chipset this mobo is using for networking.

If this keeps up, I'll toss a 3rd party nic in here (I've probably got 10 of them in my closet) and see if that works.
