Ubuntu 12.10 linux kernal ?


Hi Gregory,

Linux 12.04 uses 3.2 kernel and as stated on Ubuntu site "With Ubuntu 12.04 being an LTS release, our primary focus has been on stability.  As such, we chose to ship with a v3.2 based kernel and will continue to rebase to the latest v3.2.y stable kernels as they become available." .

The latest available kernel according to kernel.org is 3.5-rc2 and the latest stable release is 3.4.2 .

Ubuntu 12.10 Alpha 1 Linux has Kernel 3.4 and you can update your kernel from within your Ubuntu in the update manager .

So the Ubuntu kernel team is always working on kernel modifications.
