    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    I just installed 3.8-rc1... sort of. LoL!

    Got some kind of dkms failure going on.

    Unity & GS were no shows, but LXDE is working.




    I need to go back through the logs, and do some forensics...

    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    It looks like we are making some progress here, I can boot from this kernel, but Unity won't start, and compiz keeps crashing. I also had a dkms problem, with nvidia-current-updates not installing properly. Yay.

    Edit: I successfully booted into gnome-shell after removing nvidia-current-updates, using 3.8-rc1

    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    Got kernel panic with Unity...
    Got kernel panic (it seems) without Unity...
    Booted with
    Code:
    text noapic nolapic noacpi
    and will try to get one by one from kernel line...
    Startx rules...
    But it is fast... And frugal with memory...
    Yes, it can boot without any of no* but it hates compiz... Same thing with gnome-session and Unity... Gnome-session-fallback works OK... Also dwm spectrwm fvwm...
    Yes, the only thing it hates is compiz...
    Nope, it needs noapic,nolapic... Stallion...
    As I said stallion, it's just a question of time until kernel panics...
    Update₁: It doesn't seem to like my tweaks about latency, dynpm, hugepage... We'll see...

    Heh! Same ol' story, here...

    Checked: /var/lib/dkms/nvidia-current-updates/304.64/build/make.log

    Bottom line: 3.8-rc1 doesn't recognize nvidia-current 304.64 [EDIT] Or, vice-versa.

    I'll need to check my "Tomboy Notes", and see what the workaround was.

    If memory serves, I installed nVidia proprietary drivers.

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to get to it until this afternoon.

    Anyway, nvidia-current problems are preferable to kernel panics, eh what, Zika?

    That is an excellent depiction of how I see Unity3D Ubuntu Desktop works! Effortlessly, but with a lot of hard work in the background.

    Bravo..
