    Re: Precise 12.04.4 images need testing

    I'm just sticking with the Precise kernel and X-stack on my production machines because of the convoluted LTS Hardware Enablement Stack process:

    Re: Precise 12.04.4 images need testing

    Here is the new live .iso that kansasnoob originally refered to in his first post requesting testing.

    Code:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS
    Release:    12.04
    Codename:    precise
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ uname -a
    Linux ubuntu 3.11.0-15-generic #25~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 30 17:42:40 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
    So it is now using 3.11.0-15 kernel. Works like a breeze! Never saw a USB load so fast. Just beautiful work. Also you will notice where the .iso will show Precise 12.04.4 LTS when using SDC where the other .isos will not.

    Regards..

    The kernel is now 3.11.0-15 but it will not upgrade using standard terminal methods (that I have tried). It will only upgrade to that kernel if you use the release .iso.

    Right, same as Saucy:

    Code:
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ cat /etc/lsb-release
    DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
    DISTRIB_RELEASE=13.10
    DISTRIB_CODENAME=saucy
    DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 13.10"
    lance@lance-desktop:~$ uname -a
    Linux lance-desktop 3.11.0-15-generic #25-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jan 30 17:25:07 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux
    What behavior are you expecting?

    Did you read this:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

    As I understand it the Saucy stack in Precise will be supported until 14.04.1 is released in August, of course many Ubuntu users will have already upgraded to 14.04 by then

    Re: Precise 12.04.4 images need testing

    I just thought to add that the change from an 18 month support cycle to a 9 month support cycle for interim releases was not a knee-jerk process. While that was still being discussed Canonical decided to increase LTS desktop support to 5 years just as it has been for servers. Precise was the first release to employ this process.

    So there are now two ongoing dev cycles, the interim cycle and the LTS point release cycle

    This should be the last we hear of Precise in Ubuntu +1 because 12.04.4 was the last point release for Precise.

    Since there seems to some confusion between interim release dev and LTS dev maybe we need to cook up something like an "always on top" sticky

    I have concerns because I know that the original LTS kernel and X-stack will be supported for the full five years, but my postings may actually lead someone to upgrade to unusable kernels or X-stacks

    The new .iso still has an extreme prejudice for ATi Radeon Xpress1250 and Broadcomm Wireless. Even with 'nomodeset' the PC reports a verbose fail and then locks up on my Acer Extensa 4420.(that means it locks up and you can't do anything. no Ctrl+Alt+F1, reboot .. nada. You have to hard shutdown and restart so you cannot report what the screen is spewing out). Haven't tried it yet on other boxes but I am confident it works just beautifully with Dell nVidia and Intel sets.

    Anyways .. I installed Lubuntu Trusty Alpha but there is still these probs with the ATi graphics adapter.

    What was that that Ronac used to say; 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it!.

    Did You try
    Code:
    radeon.dpm=0

    I had assumed that a currently maintained hard install of Precise would be upgraded through terminal using the sudo command process:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    It currently downloads generic-lts-quantal and updates it to that 3.5.x-45 kernel using the above process. The behaviour I had expected was that it would install the 3.11.0-15 kernel during the upgrade over the existing install.
