    how do I add this ppa?

    I'm trying to troubleshoot a bug between xserver and my TV and I was told try using the latest kernels and that Ubuntu has a drm-intel-experimental ppa with the latest code from drm-intel-nightly. Where is this ppa? I found this...

    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...rm-intel-next/

    But usually when I add a ppa it is from launchpad and I add it by typing sudo apt-add-repository <ppa link here>. How do I add this repository? Do I put it in my /etc/apt/sources.list?

    Based on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Mainl...inline_Kernels I would conclude you have to install it manually. So no automagic like with a (real) PPA.

    Pity. Based on the word "PPA" I had expect you could just add an URL, like described here:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...y_Software_Tab ?

    Oh, wait: am I confusing "mainline" and "PPA"?

    Found this too: https://github.com/medigeek/kmp-downloader

    PS: this looks very abandoned: https://launchpad.net/~kernel-ppa/+archive/ppa

    Yeah, I think it was meant to be installed manually. I found that same link you posted, the one pointing to wiki.ubuntu.com and followed those instructions. All I really wanted to do was try the latest drm-intel-nightly kernel so I downloaded the three packages from here...

    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...intel-nightly/

    I installed them and the new kernel appeared in the GRUB menu and booted just fine. It threw me because I'm used to adding a ppa using the method I descibed in my OP.
