    just a note , it turns out that something Ubuntu was doing ( or not doing) was what was screwing those of us with AMD 64 systems . I just updated my Sabayon 10 install and that included the 3.7.0 kernel , it booted and runs fine . If a small underfunded distro can get it right what excuse does Ubuntu have .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    was that rhetorical?
    this is testing, in testing stuff breaks
    it is bigger and has more stuff to deal with
    we are on kernel 3.8 rc6/rc7 now

    Stuff breaks, some stuff gets fixed, some doesn't. We testers have no way of knowing what development intends to work on and fix and what they are not interested in.

    One of the areas developers are not at all interested in is WPA encrypted network connecting. On amd64 Raring automatically "disconnects" on boot. And just sits there. Syslog says NM recognizes "secrets" are required, which it has, but refuses to use. Precise connects just fine. So I have to manually connect using the "secrets" that NM already has stored. No action on my lauhchpad bugs.

    Ubuntu's primary interest is Unity eye candy directed at smartphones. I would hope for a split, Ubuntu for smartphones much stripped down on function and faster (comparatively Android goes like blazes on my tablets) and full function on the far more capable pc's.

    This is linux. We have choices. I do look for Raring bugs (whether development is interested or not) and also run 12.04.x to rescue the Raring, and also a amd64 Mint which is directed at pc's not smartphones so it is easier to set up and run for what I do. Your milage may vary.

    it was more informational . Yes this is testing , I could not test for almost half of the cycle due to the 3.7 kernels not booting on my ( and many others ) system . the problem was ignored there were similar issues with quantal also , being used as a second class participant does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling .

    I saw an article ,I couldn't find it again to link it , saying that Ubuntu was hoping for an ubuntu phone this year . While I might buy one , being a collector of lost causes , Ubuntu will be going up against 2 very fierce competitors that own the smart phone field of battle ( android and Ios ) + 2 others that are determined capture a slice their monopoly ( microsoft and blackberry ) + a host of bit players . Mark has chosen a minefield to dance in .

    This thread is starting to stray off topic. For more info on the Ubuntu smartphone, have a look at this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2100707

    Since we are now on kernel 3.8.0-6, this thread has outlived it's usefulness. Thread closed.
