Yet another new kernel - do I need those?
Hello to everyone,
Tonight, the Update Manager of my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS install showed a new available kernel: 2.6.32-35-generic.
There are two older kernels in my GRUB list (-21 and -27), which I keep just in case I ever mess things up (I am not at all an expert in Ubuntu/Linux). So far, I have always let the Update Manager install a new kernel.
But I am wondering if I always "need" a new kernel. With this particular computer of mine here, I don't see any difference - on the contrary: I seem to sense that Ubuntu is just this itsy bitsy teeny weenie slower with a new kernel (as compared to the first and/or older kernel(s) ).
So, do I need to install every new kernel?
