One question. Am I to assume that there will be no more release candidates for this cycle?

regards.As far as my experience goes, we're now to expect 3.7.n where n=1,... and in fortnight 3.8.rc1...

Same here....no boot for me, either. Booting gets as far as my USB KVM switch and everything stops. Using AMD 64 bit CPU's. Same issue I've had with all revisions of the 3.7 kernel. 3.5 works just fine.

For the first kernel compilation you will need this steps:

sudo apt-get install git kernel-package fakeroot build-essential
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git
cd linux
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config

compiling a custom kernel is all well and good if your only goal is to optimize YOUR system . However I prefer to test what Ubuntu is actually providing since that is the whole point of this forum .

Not working ? boot from last known working kernel (3.5 in this situation)

cd linux
git bisect start
git bisect bad
git bisect good v3.5

Delete *.deb in home
Compile again, this time:

I'm still stuck on the 3.5 kernel , I've tried all of the repo 3.7's up to and including the current one , several of the mainline RC's and anca-emanuel's suggestion of compiling and bisecting all no help , all ( including the daily lives ) stop at the same place during boot ( attaching drives ) all leave no log files , the only thing logged is sucessful boots to the 3.5 kernel . several other problems but they may have to do with the kernel being so far behind everything else .

I had no problems with the mainline kernels .. all the way up to rc8 .. both 64bit and 32 bit.. I even installed 3.7.rc8 on Lucid install and that worked (but had nVidia error).

It was just a 'blip' when I manually installed the 'final' 3.7.0-6.14. That swhen everything went south .. but all was recovered .. broken xorg and abi13 fixed with synaptic..etc..

no .. you are not senile at all zika. :) .. sometimes I get some-timers (sometimers means one forgets things sometimes) but at least I am not having sometimers all-the-timers :) so .. I think we all get sometimers sometimes. ? :)

I have been running the Linux Kernel 3.7 since it was released and it has been rock solid for me.

For the upgrade I used the method from this site...
http://www.upubuntu.com/2012/12/installupgrade-to-linux-kernel-37-under.html

I have also successfully upgraded to various 3.6.x versions over the past couple of months when this site has posted the Kernel Update.

For the people that are have problems booting after the Kernel Update, I experienced a similar issue during one of the 3.6.x updates and for me it turned out to be the AMD/ATI Proprietary driver that was the problem.
I uninstalled the AMD/ATI Proprietary driver and then Updated the Kernel and the computer Booted up without any issues.

When will k3.8 be implemented into 13.04??


only thing I can complain about is the slow dash perfomance under intel gfx, but it improved when I use those mesa codes...

3.8 should emerge fortnight after 3.7 was published on mainline...
So, by a simple math, we could expect it on mainline on 25th of December...
Later we will have official 3.8 in Ubuntu...

Whenever I comment on a kernel (such as 3.7 final) making everything "noticeably snappier", invariably someone will quip, "Oh, yeah? How can a kernel make a desktop snappier?"

So it is written, so it is done... LoL! :D

I'll give it a go when it comes in. The final, that is, whatever it is. I just compared gtkperf on raring 3.7.0-7 to meerkat 10.10 and raring took over twice as long. Very visible slowdown. The drivers etc. are whatever ubuntu does "out of the box" on an install. ATI RC410 Radeon Xpress 200.

Greetings,
I find all of this interesting. I clean installed my RR on Dec 4 and the kernel version was 3.7.0.4. No lockups no problems and it is currently updated to v3.7.0.6. Everything that I'm interested in works perfect. Best OS I have ever used! Toshiba Intel Chipset single processor, GM45 Vid with 1.2G of Video Ram out of 4Gig total ram.

I know a lot of you are testing 13.04 but considering it's in early alpha stage, do you think it would be "safe" enough to use as a primary distro? As the updates come in and features change, do you still find it reliable and no breakage?

Just curious ;)
I ran it live and like it a lot...but was a bit chicken about installing :D

do not use raring or any development version as your only distro , severe breakage is possible at any time . It may be rock stable today and not boot at all tomorrow .

Greetings,
It's a testing version so test it if you want to. Over 400 beans suggests you at least know your way around. It has a pretty good chance of crashing over a 4 month period. So make sure your installation procedure protects your data. Also, make sure "proposed" in the update manager is turned off since these are incomplete packages. I also backup my var/apt/cache dir before an update so that I can update easily to that point if I have to reinstall.
The only warning that I can think of is that if you don't know how to backup and protect your home partition then don't use your test installation as primary.

I use 13.04 as my main system and I don't care what the results are. It takes 1 hour max to get it back up and thats no big deal for me.
Just MHO!

I saw some improvements for me on 13.04 over 12.04 and 12.10 (which i am currently running) so i guess that is why i got anxious...but i will just have to have a few beers, calm down and be patient :lolflag:

I don't think so. Quantal will continue using and updating kernel 3.5. But you can download and manually install the latest stable kernel 3.7.

I'm using the 3.7.1 kernel in Quantal and it works perfectly - at least so far. It could be that something due to the kernel will eventually go wrong, but as I installed and ran all the 3.6 versions and then moved up to 3.7, and all has been good, I have only good things to say about these kernels. Of course, your mileage may vary, but it's easy enough to boot into an older kernel if something goes wrong. (I first tested on a non-production installation of Quantal, on a non-production laptop, but now I'm running it on my producton desktop, too. And I backup, too, just to be safe.)

It looks like we are into a nice 3.8-kernel...
996 (drm-next) doesn't live long on my machine but 999 (daily) (after couple of days with problems) works nice today...
5 days to go and counting...

Thanks Serdotlinecho...I thought that might be the case...
Would that be "safe" to add to 12.10?
And if added, would the ubuntu update manager then update it from there or would manual installs be needed for any updates on this kernel?

Which lines would you would need to grab from that download page you linked to? (i have a new computer with 64 bit and run 64 bit ubuntu 12.10...
Thanks

sudo dpkg -i linux*.debYes, it has to be done for any new kernel from mainline... No automatic updates...
Remember to purge previous kernel from mainline once You're finished with it so You will not collect old stuff afterwards...
Also be sure to select this new kernel on Your Grub screen while booting...

You should probably update that link with the 3.7.1 Link, I tried installing 3.7, then when I had problems installing it, I realized that 3.7.1 was there. :p
