Re: 3.5.0-26-generic caused both my machines to be unusable
I am running the proposed ppa and 18.104.22.168-generic #40. [Updated yesterday]
I don't have -26 to compare, but perhaps someone else can verify the correct size for vmlinuz-3.5.0-26-generic
My vmliuz-3.5.0-26-generic file size is 5.2 MB 5167568 B, only slightly larger than Posted by pfeiffep, I do not have the -25 file to compare.
However, the initrd.img files are hugely different:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2199280 Feb 28 08:11 initrd.img-3.5.0-25-generic 2.2MB -22 to -25 all virtually the same, and smaller than pfeiffep's..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15110631 Feb 28 08:05 initrd.img-3.5.0-26-generic 15.1MB
I do not know the significance of the difference, but -26 runs on my set-up without any problems:
[ Intel i3 530 @2.93: 1GB Geforce GT 520: 3.0GiB Ram: 32 bit. ]

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
