    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    Greetings,
    Just follow Ventrical's lead on the 3.7 kernel I install 3.8 in Lucid.
    rrnbtter-laptop:~$ cat /proc/version
    Linux version 3.8.0-030800rc1-generic (root@gomeisa) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #201212212135 SMP Sat Dec 22 02:45:41 UTC 2012

    Everything was fast and working except that I didn't have any drivers for my Atheros WIFI, nor my US Cellular USB modem.

    After rebooting to my 2.6 kernel and doing some research on the internet. I rebooted back to the 3.8 kernel but had a boot failure do to a failed Home dir scan. I put my RR harddrive back in my computer and I can access the Home dir on the Lucid drive just fine with my USB adapter. So I may wait for an update on the kernel and give it another go.
    FYI

    Greetings,

    Well, when I rebooted my RR partition I plugged my Lucid disk into a USB port and it had a single bad sector. Now boots fine from the USB port into both 2.6 and 3.8 kernels.

    rrnbtter-laptop:~$ cat /proc/version
    Linux version 3.8.0-030800rc1-generic (root@gomeisa) (gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5) ) #201212212135 SMP Sat Dec 22 02:45:41 UTC 2012

    rrnbtter-laptop:~$ cat /proc/version
    Linux version 2.6.32-21-generic (buildd@rothera) (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 08:10:02 UTC 2010

    Other than no internet everything is working with no errors so far.

    Since I have to stick with the nvidia 304.x series, this is what worked for me.

    1. Purged nvidia-current-updates
    2. Installed nvidia-current
    3. Downgraded nvidia-current to the previous version
    4. Locked nvidia-current via synaptic and:
      Code:
      $ sudo -s
      # echo nvidia-current hold | dpkg --set-selections


    Code:
    paul@lubuntu-64:~$ apt-cache policy nvidia-current
    nvidia-current:

    raring ringtail , fully updated and this time around it dropped my USB wireless, so I had to plugg in my eth0 cable. Works great on other kernels.

    I'll try an update.

    Thanks for this info. I am about to install the 3.8RC on Lucid. It works great except it has this funky bug with nvidia-96 drivers, but it is very stable , (no graphics) and a lot faster GNOME. I am doing this experiment with these newer kernels with the hopes of dragging something out of Lucid that I can bring up into Raring

    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    After failing to boot all the 3.6.x and 3.7.x, 3.8.0 RC1 booted woohoo.

    Now I'm struggling to get an nvidia driver that works with it. Wich one is actually working ?
    Tried reverting to 304.43 but it fails to build for 3.8.0.
