    For the first kernel compilation you will need this steps:

    sudo apt-get install git kernel-package fakeroot build-essential
    git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git
    cd linux
    cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
    yes '' | make oldconfig
    CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=`getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers
    cd ..
    sudo dpkg -i linux*.deb
    sudo reboot


    git bisect --help

    compiling a custom kernel is all well and good if your only goal is to optimize YOUR system . However I prefer to test what Ubuntu is actually providing since that is the whole point of this forum .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

    Testing mainline kernel is the first step.
    Not working ? boot from last known working kernel (3.5 in this situation)

    cd linux
    git bisect start
    git bisect bad
    git bisect good v3.5

    Delete *.deb in home
    Compile again, this time:

    CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=`getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-bisect1 kernel_image kernel_headers

    One question. Am I to assume that there will be no more release candidates for this cycle?
    regards.
    For kernel ?
    We will have an 3.8 kernel.
    Want some more ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwXR89WYkFg

    or something else?
    (Commands above are for amd64, easily corrected for i386 via simple substitute...)
    @zika,

    Re: We've got ourselves kernel 3.7 final...

    btw .. I downloaded the *.deb files, installed them and it broke xorg. I had to boot into 3.5.n-n to get terminal and:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    I finally got my desktop back. I can't find that kernel install anywhere in grub.

    I'm back on :desktop 3.7.0-030700rc8-generic #201212031649 SMP Mon Dec 3 22:00:46 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

    Does the RR version of 3.7.0 work for you?
