    Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    Just out of curiosity, how many of us with AMD cpu's are having trouble booting the the latest kernel available in the repositories?

    My Intel atom powered netbook runs just fine with the 3.7.0.2 kernel.

    I have no problem to boot.
    The installation is an upgrade from 12.04.1 to 12.10 and then with changed source list
    Code:
    sudo sed -i 's/quantal/raring/g' /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    I have that problem I can´t boot in 3.7 kernel, system immediately freezes and gets stuck in it and not do anything any more after that

    My system is... Asus motherboard, AMD Athlon 250 II 3,0 Ghz, 4 Gt DDR2 ram and Nvidia 9400 gt

    sometimes I get the error "soft lockup cpu0..." or something like that...I have never seen this one before....and it hangs...if it will boot I only see one core of 4.

    Not that it's a solution, but does installing amd64-microcode make any difference?
