    Thanks! I forgot it was Sunday...

    Surprisingly, my sound system is much louder, and cleaner now!

    Never noticed that before, after upgrading the kernel. Hrm...

    Assuming you're running nVidia...

    Are you using nvidia-current 295.40-0ubuntu1+xedgers~precise1, from the edgers PPA?

    Thanks Guys, yes I'm running nVidia 295.4 which were installed when I got the update xorg server to 1.12.1, when I boot it just goes to the redish screen, where you normally get the Ubuntu with the dots underneath it, just before the login screen, and it just sits there.
    Went to /usr/src and there was only the generic and the new kernel there ??? all very strange.
    Regards Miykel

    I've been lucky with this kernel, as 3.4 hasn't given me a single panic and is very stable for me, thanks to following VinDSL's advice and adding the edgers ppa. I added the ppa and then simply updated and upgraded in Synaptic, and purged the old kernel.

    EDIT: also, I've had similar success as VINDSL With my soundsystem. Most of the time, the sound will be basically muted until it gets to about 30-40 percent, but now it registers at 10-20-30 percent like it's supposed to work. I'm impressed!

    Aha! It's not our imagination, e.g. we aren't (ahem) hearing things...

    Subject [GIT PULL] sound fixes for 3.4-rc4

    Hi Linus,

    The following changes since commit 7d7eb9ea314e992413620610b4d09c9cd5fa8959:

    ALSA: hda/realtek - Fix mem leak (and rid us of trailing whitespace). (2012-04-13 07:35:57 +0200)

    are available in the git repository at:

    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tiwai/sound.git tags/sound-3.4

    for you to fetch changes up to c817eebec5971febab86d397582954bd52f403a8:

    Merge branch 'fix/cxt-stable' into fix/hda (2012-04-19 17:13:03 +0200)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    sound fixes for 3.4-rc4

    Fixes for a few regressions of HD-audio, originated partly from 3.4
    and partly 3.3.
    The fixes for ThinkPad docking-station are for 3.3 kernels, thus they
    are based on 3.3 then merged back to 3.4, so that they can be merged
    to stable tree cleanly. The non-trivial merge conflicts are because
    of this action.

    In addition, a copule of trivial fixes for documentation and a long-
    statnding issue in the listing of built-in sound driver at boot time.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Kuninori Morimoto (1):
    ALSA: workaround: change the timing of alsa_sound_last_init()
    Randy Dunlap (1):
    ALSA: fix core/vmaster.c kernel-doc warning

    Takashi Iwai (5):
    ALSA: hda/realtek - Fix regression on Quanta/Gericom KN1
    ALSA: hda/sigmatel - Fix inverted mute LED
    ALSA: hda/conexant - Don't set HP pin-control bit unconditionally
    ALSA: hda/conexant - Set up the missing docking-station pins

    Re: Kenel 3.4-rc* is here...

    Is anyone else noticing a slower wifi connect speed compared to 3.2.XX ?

    Normally I connect at 65mbps on 3.2 but on 3.4 I am connecting at 19-25 mbps. Occasionally connection would drop to 5mbps or so.

    On:

    03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 (rev 67)
    Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 BGN
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 48
    Memory at f5600000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
    Kernel modules: iwlwifi
    - On an Asus G74Sx (16G, 1T, 2630QM, GTX 560m etc etc.. )

    I'm running a wired connection right now, so no, I haven't noticed any slowness, but...

    Network-Manager gave me fits on Linux 3.2/3.3. I had to switch to Wicd for a couple of months, just to get a web connection.

    Anyway, if you're running NM, you might want to give Wicd a whirl, and see if things improve.

    BTW, sorry for being rudimentary, but if you switch interfaces, make sure to download (only) the Wicd package, before purging NM.

    You won't be able to install Wicd, unless you have a local copy, because you won't have a web connection, in between purging NM and installing Wicd, e.g. you can't have two network managers installed at the same time.

    Don't wanna get you in the jackpot, following my advice, you know?
