Well, here we are. I'm using kernel 2.6.27-4 and all is good.

Any tips on how to compile my own? I've googled it so many times, and not found one that doesn't look insanely confusing.

kernel.org has a nice step-by-step guide on how to compile your own kernel. Its not a good idea to use a kernel if you don't know how to add kernel patches for specific hardware applications (like audio, wifi, etc.).

Not to mention that it doesn't help Intrepid development. If you file a bug against *any* package while running a custom kernel, the developers will consider your report null & void.

Anyway, I find overall performance is much, much better than with the older -3-generic kernel. I'm happy :).

It doesn't make my speaker beep madly till it's booted now! Previously I had to remove the splash & quiet in the menu.list but I still don't have a splash screen.

My gamepad won't work as of 2.6.27-4. If I press the D-Pad it moves the mouse cursor instead. No game will respond to the joystick as it appears its being seen as a mouse.

Very frustrated here - I'd like to play a few rounds of ZSNES before bed, now I don't get to. :(

Edit: Oh, and if I press any action button on the gamepad, X dies.

Working great in here too. Only one minor regression: usplash shows artefacts at boot now (you know, the regular progress bar duplicated some times across the screen). Nothing serious though :)

Remember that a new Kerneloops version is available.

Cheers anyway Nullack, but this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=5839354&postcount=13) solved it. My device wasn't supported... Moment I rolled back driver, BINGO!

Here, on a Aspire One, it broke wifi, with a "unable to attach hardware" error. Madwifi's latest snapshot fixed it.

Kernel works great. This was the first time for long that the nVidia drivers kept working after the kernel upgrade. It looks like they're getting it right after all :)

I updated my Aspire One today and wifi worked without having to re-compile the madwifi drivers, which is a first since replacing linpus with 8.10 a few weeks back. Well done kernel team. :)

updated, broke my display, once i corrected that problem via the xorg gui tool that popped up after 4 tries i got back into my sytem. but nvidia was broken so had to install and restart several times before it would allow me to run desktop-effects. Sadly after that my sound was broken...

now i know that wasnt all because of this kernel but i thought id post my experience after upgrading... ouch.

seems stable now though minus the sound part that i'm working on:)

Any tips on how to compile my own? I've googled it so many times, and not found one that doesn't look insanely confusing.

1. grab the kernel source, ungzip untar
2. cd to the dir with sources
3. copy your existing kernel config:
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .
4. type to configure the kernel:
make menuconfig
5. type:
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd kernel-image kernel-headers
6. install your new kernel image and headers packages and reboot

This is what I do to compile a kernel.

I'm assuming this thread is about the 64 bit version. At least for me, the 32 bit kernel upgrade is being held back. Did you install the 64 bit version on that machine, or am I missing something here?

The Update Manager delivered the 32-bit -4 to me last night without any drama at all. In fact, I would not of noticed the kernel update at all except for the dialog box that popped up asking what I wanted to do about GRUB's menu.lst

I don't normally use the Update Manager, but opt for apt-get to do all my upgrades. I just checked from the terminal, and it's still being held back. Checking with Update Manager, the kernel upgrade is grayed out, so at least for me, it's still unavailable. Oh well, not unexpected. It'll catch up eventually...

You are correct, the first computer used to be using 32bit ubuntu, I forgot I put it in 64 bit. So both are 64 bit machines indeed.

The later update of pulse audio corrected the problem.
Some channels were muted though so I did not get sound back immediately.

On 22 september I updated Intrepid to 2.27-4 and after reboot I got a blank screen which tells me the nvidia or xorg configuration (can't remember which one) is broken and asked me to configure it but the popped up dialog didn't work/solve anything either, so I'm back to 2.27-3.

Sound here does not work. it's ICH6 chip set, intel integrated sound.
Is the new pulseaudio in the repo yet? Or do I have to refresh some config file?

try sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

and see if that frees the kernel upgrade.

Go into Synaptic, search by name for nvidia and select all those currently installed for reinstallation.

This will install the necessary files for DKMS to install the module for 27-4.

Now reinstall linux-image-2.6.27-4. This should trigger DKMS to install the nvidia module. If it doesn't work, reboot and try again.

There's bound to be an easier way, but this worked for me.

You can just copy paste the -3 entry and edit into -4. It should just work.

I spoke way too soon, I booted this morning & my PC speaker went mad & I had to shutdown before it woke the inhabitants of my house:( Then had to boot into recovery mode & remove the quiet & splash again! It's ironic that I have to remove the quiet to get peace & quiet:)

Not working in kernel 2.6.27-4 (and all previous 2.6.27)!

After upgrading to Intrepid Ibex my Hauppauge WinTV USB2 device stopped working (using v4l and pvrusb2 kernel modules). If I attach the Hauppauge device the boot hang/freezes at "Starting bluetooth", if connecting it after the boot the pvrusb2 module never loads the device firmware and does not get the devices (/dev/video0 or /dev/radio0) up and running.

If I boot into kernel 2.6.26-5 it works.

Kernel 2.6.27-4 (64-bit) installed just fine on my Intel Quad Core Shuttle, but of course the Nvidia stuff was totally broken.
The only way I could get it working was to re-create my xorg.conf file which it had deleted, not very nice.
The nvidia-settings would core dump when trying to write the xorg.conf file.

On my MacBook Pro (Gen2) the kernel (64-bit also) still won't install due to missing dependencies.

Of course vmware is still broken as well.

2.6.27-4 fails for me. Gives me something about corrupt ACPI andd then it fails to find root either with guid/or directly as /dev/sda4 etc.

2.6.27-3 works fine.. but I cant run 2.6.27-4 in any shape or form.

I too still get all that beeping if I leave splash on.. this is on x84-64 edition

(asus p5q-e, intel q9550, nvidia 9800gt, 8gb ram)

Thanks, today from 2.6.27-3 there was another wave of updates of like 100MB and after applying them I booted to 27-4 and this time it worked/works fine.
