    Latest kernel for 12.04?

    Hi,

    According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Release/Rolling 12.04LTS should now also have the v3.5 kernel used in 12.10.

    So, I'm wondering when (or if) it'll sow up in the official repository.

    Have you tried installing linux-image-current?

    There is no linux-image-current
    Code:
    $ apt-cache policy linux-image-current
    N: Unable to locate package linux-image-current
    Code:
    $ apt-cache policy linux-image-current-generic
    linux-image-current-generic:
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 3.2.0.32.35
      Version table:
         3.2.0.32.35 0
            500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates/main amd64 Packages
            500 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security/main amd64 Packages
    Anyway, the closest packange name to linux-image-current is even older than what I have currently installed.

    Code:
    $ dpkg -l | grep linux-image | cut -c-70
    rc  linux-image-3.2.0-29-generic                      3.2.0-29.46     
    rc  linux-image-3.2.0-30-generic                      3.2.0-30.48     
    rc  linux-image-3.2.0-31-generic                      3.2.0-31.50     
    ii  linux-image-3.2.0-32-generic                      3.2.0-32.51     
    ii  linux-image-generic                               3.2.0.32.35

    Thanks.

    How do I discern which http://kernel.org/ v3.5 kernel that 3.5.0.18.24 relates to?

    Interesting. When I looked at the Properties using Synaptic, it said it is in precise-updates.
