    Question Kernel updates during the same(13.04) release?

    hi there,
    i had a strong issue further, check this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2130159. today just for fun, i tried out the newest Xubuntu 13.04. just simply choosed it at the LiLi and for my biggest suprise, it worked after many shutdowns and restarts. i thinked maybe, the unity has issues with my AMD, but not. now i already writing from a many times restarted 13.04 Ubi liveusb. unbeliveable
    so i wont try and maybe cant find the older builds of Ubuntu, to figure out which one made the progress. just want to ask: under the same distro used to be updated with the newest kernel or other main components or just something repaird from itself or God helped me
    thanks

    A lot of work went into Ubuntu and its flavours (such as Xubuntu) in the last four weeks before its release at the end of April. I tested 13.04 all through its development period and for months I could not run a live session without using an F6 option (more than one option in fact). Then about February/March something changed and I was able to run a live session in the same way that I always had been able to.

    There have been issues with proprietary video drivers but the open source video driver (Nouveau) is much improved. I use it instead of Nvidia drivers. Each release of Ubuntu has newer kernels than the previous release.

    I am now testing Saucy Salamander and the live session runs fine and also the installation runs fine.

    Regards.

    i already tested one of the first stable releases, so thats why its intresting. i used the open(default) and the proprietary AMD driver, and i wont changed. so i think there was same other issue.

    SS went from kernel 3.8.0 to 3.9.0 within the first few days after 13.04 was released. And today we got kernel 3.9.0-1.

    thanks one last question
    the wine is opencl capable? so i want to use a videoediter program, and its gpu accelerated with opencl and helps a lot in the preview windows and a small help at rendering too. but the preview accelerate is more important for me.

    Seeing as this thread isn't Saucy specific, moved to General Help.
