    Upgrade to the latest kernel worked like a charm, aside from the new NVidia drivers I had to install.

    Now my DWL-G122 c1 wireless usb adapter also works without special drivers!

    FYI:
    running Feisty on an AMD Athlon64 3200+

    Interesting network test, great script
    Isn't python fun? Here's the script I wrote with it, took me a while -- http://kcheck.sourceforge.net/pool/l...elcheck-stage2

    A bunch of other packages would be updated as a result of nvidia-glx-new for some reason. Anyone actually done this? If so what happened?

    I have an Asus mobo and would like 2.6.22 to give me hardware monitoring. lm-sensors doesn't support the sensors on the mobo without 2.6.21 or above.
    Yes, me too. EVGA 680i mobo, want kernel >= 2.6.21 for lm-sensors, but don't want Gutsy yet. Restricted-Drivers Feisy nvidia driver didn't work for me since I am on x86_64 with geForce 8800GTS video card, needed Envy for it to work properly.

    Edit: Manual upgrade instructions + envy after booting into the new kernel worked smoothly and easily. Thank you !!

    One small hitch with grub due to my having dual SATA drives with different ubuntu versions on them?
    • first time ran script chose "no do not reboot now" in kernel-1.py
    • killed some stuff and rebooted
    • no new kernel option in grub menu at boot
    • thought well, should have let kernel.py reboot so ran it again and let it reboot the system
    • still no grub entry for 2.6.22
    • sudo vi /boot/grub/menu.lst
    • !! 2.6.22 listing is right there first entry
    • tried various edits to menu.lst, rebooting without new entry
    • ran update-grub
    • still no 2.6.22 entry
    • duh - finally looked in /boot/ itself and no vmlinuz-2.6.22-12
    • followed manual instructions to upgrage kernel
    • checked that 2.6.22 stuff is in /boot/
    • reboot

    same thing it's in menu.lst but doesn't show up as an option
    $ uname -r
    $ 2.6.20-16-generic

    Edit: Okay... hmm gotta check my partitions
    recovery mode groot=(hd0,1) /boot/ has no new kernel
    default boot groot=(hd0,2) /boot/ has new kernel

    yah... got confused with feisty32 install I'd forgotten about, two weirdly partitioned SATA drives. I'm used this GRUB overview to sort it out.

    i use the restricted driver - DO NOT REMOVE anything - i did and got meself in some hot water - it needs the glx junk and xorg drivers. and linux-commons is needed for the restricted manager - so it's best to leave them.


    Oh and Before the BETA there is going to be - might more after this post a new linux header - image, etc.. everyday - so do the gutsy update kernel updates everyday.

    Re: Howto: Simple kernel upgrade (Feisty or Edgy) to Gutsy's developing kernel.

    I gave a quick skim through the topic, so I might have missed a solution to my problem.

    The tutorial did wonders for, me, I was finally able to run both of my sata drives in ubuntu, many thanks!

    Thing is, auto update keeps reminding me to downgrade to Feity's kernel... any way to remove those updates, so I don't have a constant update icon reminder on my taskbar?
