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

    Just curious, but would ubuntu 12.10 eventually be getting this kernel in it's updates? Or is this really for 13.04 only?

    I don't think so. Quantal will continue using and updating kernel 3.5. But you can download and manually install the latest stable kernel 3.7.

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

    I'm using the 3.7.1 kernel in Quantal and it works perfectly - at least so far. It could be that something due to the kernel will eventually go wrong, but as I installed and ran all the 3.6 versions and then moved up to 3.7, and all has been good, I have only good things to say about these kernels. Of course, your mileage may vary, but it's easy enough to boot into an older kernel if something goes wrong. (I first tested on a non-production installation of Quantal, on a non-production laptop, but now I'm running it on my producton desktop, too. And I backup, too, just to be safe.)

    It looks like we are into a nice 3.8-kernel...
    996 (drm-next) doesn't live long on my machine but 999 (daily) (after couple of days with problems) works nice today...
    5 days to go and counting...

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

    Thanks Serdotlinecho...I thought that might be the case...
    Would that be "safe" to add to 12.10?
    And if added, would the ubuntu update manager then update it from there or would manual installs be needed for any updates on this kernel?

    Which lines would you would need to grab from that download page you linked to? (i have a new computer with 64 bit and run 64 bit ubuntu 12.10...
    Thanks

    There is no safe stuff here in this part of Forum...
    As it is given above:
    Yes, it has to be done for any new kernel from mainline... No automatic updates...
    Remember to purge previous kernel from mainline once You're finished with it so You will not collect old stuff afterwards...
    Also be sure to select this new kernel on Your Grub screen while booting...

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

    You should probably update that link with the 3.7.1 Link, I tried installing 3.7, then when I had problems installing it, I realized that 3.7.1 was there.
