    Re: 3.5.0-26-generic caused both my machines to be unusable

    Hi!, tglati4,

    You Posted:
    I don't have -26 to compare, but perhaps someone else can verify the correct size for vmlinuz-3.5.0-26-generic
    I am running the proposed ppa and #40. [Updated yesterday]
    My vmliuz-3.5.0-26-generic file size is 5.2 MB 5167568 B, only slightly larger than Posted by pfeiffep, I do not have the -25 file to compare.
    However, the initrd.img files are hugely different:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2199280 Feb 28 08:11 initrd.img-3.5.0-25-generic 2.2MB -22 to -25 all virtually the same, and smaller than pfeiffep's..
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15110631 Feb 28 08:05 initrd.img-3.5.0-26-generic 15.1MB

    I do not know the significance of the difference, but -26 runs on my set-up without any problems:

    [ Intel i3 530 @2.93: 1GB Geforce GT 520: 3.0GiB Ram: 32 bit. ]

    Chao!, bogan.

    They did things differently in those days, apparently!!

    Question Re: 3.5.0-26-generic caused both my machines to be unusable

    This is causing some difficulty in upgrading other packages ... like this failure:

    2013-03-26 14:02:14 remove libreoffice-emailmerge:all 1:4.0.2~rc1-0ubuntu1~quantal2
    2013-03-26 14:02:15 status not-installed libreoffice-emailmerge:all
    Since I'm perfectly satisfied with kernel 3.5.0-24-generic I took a more assertive action

    2013-03-26 14:20:39 startup packages purge

    I'm curious what precipitated this; and what implications are there to "freezing" my system at 3.5.0-24-generic while I explore raring in a separate partition?
