    You don't need to do a re-install, or even a dist-upgrade to get 12.04.2. If yu just do your normal updates, you'll eventually be running the LTS point release.

    I just did a normal update on my server, and After a reboot, I'm running the latest release:

    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS"

    Re: Reminder of 12.04.2 release 01-31-2013

    HI1, grahammechanical,

    Thanks for the response. I had, of course, already run sudo grub-install /dev/sda to revert control to my main 12.10 installation.
    I had to do that as the 12.04.2 grub menu was virtually un-useable.

    But I ran 'update-grub' after, not before the 'grub-install' - was that a mistake?

    Are you suggesting that it is possible to install Grub 2 v2.00 in 12.04.2 with the 3.5 kernal?, instead of v1.99-2; which, i understand, is actually Grub2 as well, but without the Additional Options sub-menus.

    @cariboo907,

    I needed to do a clean install to clear out some problem; normal updates did not offer, or carry out the 3.5 kernal upgrade.

    There is discussion in this thread, and elsewhere, pointing out that /etc/lsb-release had been pre- updated in preparation for the release of 12.04.2.

    Two days before release my fully updated 12.04.1 still showed 3.2.0.37-generic-pae from 'uname -r', but 'cat /etc/lsb-release' already showed Precise 12.04.2 LTS, exactly as in your Post.

    Try: 'uname -ar'. May-be a 'dist-upgrade' would do it.

    Edit: Currently, I get:
    :~$ uname -ar
    Linux alan-MS-7616 3.5.0-23-generic #35~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 25 17:15:33 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    :~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=12.04
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=precise
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS"
    Chao!, bogan.

    And two days after 12.04.2 was released you would still see the same results.

    An updated 12.04 or 12.04.1 install will keep you on the 3.2 kernel.

    Therefore no surprise to see your results above.

    You have to manually install the newer kernel, either by installing the relevant packages via terminal/synaptic/whatever or performing a fresh install from 12.04.2 media, you won't get it automatically by updating a 12.04 or 12.04.1 machine.

    Re:wine on amd64

    Just to note -
    On a fresh 12.04.2 amd64 install, if wanting wine installed you must first manually install
    libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-quantal:i386

    Either thru apt or synaptic
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-quantal:i386
    After that should be ok but may still be preferrable to run a sim first, then install if no issues or removals shown

    Code:
     sudo apt-get -s install wine1.4

    Re: Reminder of 12.04.2 release 01-31-2013

    this is pretty ridiculous. there is no multiarch packages available for a lot of the lts quantal backported xorg packages. so if you install a 32 bit app like steam that needs these it tries to downgrade the whole system to the 12.04.1 versions. please tell me canonicol knows about this and will fix it...

    to test just try installing ia32-libs-multiarch:i386 on a 12.04.2 machine, it will want to downgrade every single xorg package to the non backported ones. How could they release 12.04.2 with such a bad oversight?

    EDIT: I think a lot of the problem with steam is valve's fault because it has outdated dependencies. If I do: sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-quantal:i386 like mc4man suggested for wine, steam will now install fine via USC. however when I launch steam it always pops up a terminal trying to install the old non quantal packages (but if I close this prompt steam launches and works fine). but the fact that installing stuff like ia32-libs-multiarch:i386 from the official repos tries to downgrade the graphics subsystem, and as bogan experienced installing the nvidia drivers from the repo trying to downgrade everything still seems like some cause for alarm on ubuntu's end.

    Hi!, screamingj3sus,

    +1 to that!

    The same thing happened when I tried to install an nvidia driver from Synaptic, that was not offered by Additional Drivers.

    It told me - luckily - that it would un-install all the linux 3.5 headers, images and backports, and a lot of 'lts' files !!

    I did not see Xorg in the list, but it was so long I gave up.

    Chao!, bogan.

    Tip for you folks using 12.04 who will be manually updating to the 3.5 kernel:

    Save yourself a lot of headaches by installing linux-headers-generic-lts-quantal BEFORE installing linux-image-generic-lts-quantal

    DKMS needs the headers for the new kernel in order to attempt to build existing kernel modules against the new kernel. Personally, I think all linux kernel packages should depend on their respective headers package for this reason, but that's just me.

    I've checked thru the installer & extracted packages, doesn't seem to easy to get rid of that message/terminal popup.
    May be possible if one created appropiate files in .local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/installed for the 2 'so-called' missing or the 2 actual lts
    (plus possibly editing some other files

    Doesn't seem to affect running other that the nag terminal & better for steam to adjust their installer+package files for lts X if they are inclined.

    As far as using nvidia drivers (preferred for steam), just tried the 3.10, seemed ok, will see what a reboot brings...

    Edit: - no 'real' issue with the 3.10, nvidia-settings said wasn't running so put in a xorg.conf & all seems fine.
    (- this setup needs a specific xorg.conf anyway to use nvidia drivers (need/want to disable powermizer on ac) so will remove the nvidia-xconfig created one which would certainly be overblown & replace with a simple one
