Hey all. I'm stuck with this bug since my update from 7.08: I use an onboard soundchip (Intel HDA) which no longer works under the current 2.6.24 kernel series. Since I got a differnt computer for gaming and stuff, I keep up with Ubuntu 8.04, instead of going back to 7.08. Some days ago, a user commented on the bugreport, that his soundchip works again under the 18.104.22.168 kernel.
Now I want to give the 2.6.25.x kernel series a try and see if it works for me too.
Problem is: I never compiled my own kernel under Ubuntu and after reading some intro texts I'm still not quiete sure where to start (different methodes to get the source, where exactly get the source, etc.) and if I also need to compile the restricted modueles (I use an nvidia GPU with the restricted drivers, no wireless card, etc. though)? I didn't even find the Ubuntu sources for 2.6.25.x in GIT
So, can anyone tell me, what would be the best way to do this?
Best in that I get all the Ubuntu-Modifications along instead of a plain vanilla kernel (from Kernel.org, or is it a good way to use the plain kernel.org stuff?), good integration in Ubuntu, works after automatic updates and the like.
Couldn't be as easy as someone gives me an adress for 2.6.25.x, I use git, copy my old config over, build a .deb and install it?
