Do you know what the name of the update is under update manager. I have 136 updates available since I selected pre-released updates. I would much rather only install the kernel update. Below is my current kernel version just in case the update was already pushed out.
Linux shaun-Pangolin-Performance 3.2.0-26-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 14 17:49:24 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I was about to post a big message about my PanP9 freezing up all the time, and then I saw this. Let's see if it works!
Actually, quick question. Should I use the "proposed update" kernel from Ubuntu, or just upgrade to the new stable 3.4.6 that came out a few days ago? Or are they the same thing?
Got it, thanks!
I have a brand new gazp7 and have experienced a hard freeze twice today when I found this thread. However, I have already been running with all Ubuntu updates.
Is 3.2.0-27 the kernel that has the patches in it?Code:uname -a Linux 3.2.0-27-generic #43-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 6 14:25:57 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I did go to System76 support who put me on a kernel version 3.3.6 late yesterday....since then, no lockups. Keeping fingers crossed....
Edit: I did run a memtest for about 15 minutes to ensure it wasn't that. I have 16GB ram and wanted to check it anyway...

Hello. I just wanted to point out that this method is a little bit dangerous to your system. You are in effect installing more than just the proposed kernel update. This can lead to instability in the packages since proposed is not exactly stable.
Wouldn't it be more prudent to only select the kernel for installation instead of allowing all proposed packages to be installed? Then after reboot uncheck the proposed updates as stated in the steps below?
