    Kernel Upgrade

    I've got some SSD on 10.04 Ratel. Turns out 2.6.38 is the good kernel for SSD.

    I came across this page:

    which claims that the upgrade is harmless and painless (my interpretation). Is this true?

    Actually, TRIM is enabled in the 2.6.35 kernel too, which is the default for Maverick. I'd recommend that instead, as it's much less likely to botch your system than using a different kernel version.

    Re: Kernel Upgrade

    Just as a warning, I tried the 2.6.36, 2.6.37 and 2.6.38 kernels from the lucid kernel ppa repository and found they all degraded usb read/write speed to the point that they were unusable, a few KB/sec. I now use the 2.6.35-28 kernel from the "proposed updates" of software sources, and that slow usb problem has gone away.

    It was taking about an hour to make a ubuntu live usb startup disk with the ppa kernels, but is now back to around 5 minutes.
