    Because the default configs haven't been updated yet.

    From literally the post prior to yours.

    Hopefully the kernel team will soon rebase the ubuntu raring kernel to 3.8 (already done in master-next git) soon and update configs accordingly. The RC builds in the kernel-ppa would then pull in the correct configs and build the Atheros drivers.

    I've been doing my own kernel builds in the meantime correcting the configs, and can confirm that once done the 3.8 kernel plays nicely with my Atheros card.

    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    I installed the newest rc2 version of kernel, but it seems to have problems with recognizing my USB keryboard and mouse (they just don't work).
    Anyone had such problem ?

    Because the Ubuntu Kernel Team (or some smaller part of it) apparently got in their heads that nobody cares about the configs as long as you get the new kernel.

    Edit the config the way you want!!
    ##comments## commands are Bold
    ##You can dl 3.8rc2 from here
    http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern....8-rc2.tar.bz2
    ##then extract it
    cd linux-3.8-rc2
    ##then copy old config for a starting point
    cp -vi /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
    make oldconfig

    ##then make changes that you want
    make menuconfig
    ##set how many cores to use, how ever many cores you have plus 1
    export CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=5
    ##make the kernel
    fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd kernel-image kernel-headers
    ##then install
    cd ..
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    ## This way you can build it the way you want.

    make localmodconfig

    Only configures the currently used modules of active kernel. Some added modules are there for you removal also it is just a bit quicker of cleaning up for next compile.

    Status: Raring Development Kernel

    We have rebased the Raring kernel to the latest v3.8-rc2 upstream kernel. We have held off on uploading until we have resolved some DKMS package build failures. Everyone should also review the ubuntu-raring/dropped.txt file to review anything that may have inadvertantly gone missing after the rebase. Important upcoming dates:
    • Raring:
      • Fri Jan 18 - 13.04 Month 3 Milestone (1 week)
      • Mon Feb 18 - 13.04 Month 4 Milestone (~6 weeks)

    • Precise:
      • Thu Jan 10 - 12.04.2 Kernel Freeze (~2 days)
      • Thu Feb 14 - 12.04.2 Release (~5 weeks)


    We should have the last DKMS issues fixed tomorrow. We may have -rc3 by then as well.

    Re: Linux 3.8-rc1

    Would one of you 13.04 testers post a message to this thread when you notice that they have uploaded the 3.8 kernel? Would appreciate it, i want to check out the live session on the daily build when it is on there....

    Thanks

    3.8-rc3 just showed up in the ppa, I'm just about to install it.

    Edit: I'm up and running again without any hiccups.

    Code:
    cariboo@alexis:~$ uname -a
    Linux alexis 3.8.0-030800rc3-generic #201301092235 SMP Thu Jan 10 03:36:25 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
