    stable and solid.

    When will k3.8 be implemented into 13.04??


    only thing I can complain about is the slow dash perfomance under intel gfx, but it improved when I use those mesa codes...

    now I'm hoping for significant improvements in 3.8 since intel claims to have been working on their drivers
    3.8 should emerge fortnight after 3.7 was published on mainline...
    So, by a simple math, we could expect it on mainline on 25th of December...
    Later we will have official 3.8 in Ubuntu...

    Whenever I comment on a kernel (such as 3.7 final) making everything "noticeably snappier", invariably someone will quip, "Oh, yeah? How can a kernel make a desktop snappier?"

    So it is written, so it is done... LoL!

    I'll give it a go when it comes in. The final, that is, whatever it is. I just compared gtkperf on raring 3.7.0-7 to meerkat 10.10 and raring took over twice as long. Very visible slowdown. The drivers etc. are whatever ubuntu does "out of the box" on an install. ATI RC410 Radeon Xpress 200.

    Greetings,
    I find all of this interesting. I clean installed my RR on Dec 4 and the kernel version was 3.7.0.4. No lockups no problems and it is currently updated to v3.7.0.6. Everything that I'm interested in works perfect. Best OS I have ever used! Toshiba Intel Chipset single processor, GM45 Vid with 1.2G of Video Ram out of 4Gig total ram.

    I know a lot of you are testing 13.04 but considering it's in early alpha stage, do you think it would be "safe" enough to use as a primary distro? As the updates come in and features change, do you still find it reliable and no breakage?

    Just curious
    I ran it live and like it a lot...but was a bit chicken about installing

    do not use raring or any development version as your only distro , severe breakage is possible at any time . It may be rock stable today and not boot at all tomorrow .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough

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

    Greetings,
    It's a testing version so test it if you want to. Over 400 beans suggests you at least know your way around. It has a pretty good chance of crashing over a 4 month period. So make sure your installation procedure protects your data. Also, make sure "proposed" in the update manager is turned off since these are incomplete packages. I also backup my var/apt/cache dir before an update so that I can update easily to that point if I have to reinstall.
    The only warning that I can think of is that if you don't know how to backup and protect your home partition then don't use your test installation as primary.

    I use 13.04 as my main system and I don't care what the results are. It takes 1 hour max to get it back up and thats no big deal for me.
    Just MHO!

    Thanks for the input, guys...
    I think i will probably wait then for the final release...going to be a long wait

    I saw some improvements for me on 13.04 over 12.04 and 12.10 (which i am currently running) so i guess that is why i got anxious...but i will just have to have a few beers, calm down and be patient

    Greetings,
    It seems that since the 3.7.0-7 update the shut-down link is just going to log-out. Endless cycle. Using "sudo shutdown +0 -h .
