    Is there maybe something mixed up in this article?

    – First:
    “This kernel is now available in the git repository of Ubuntu 10.04 and you are able to compile your own 2.6.35 kernel for Ubuntu 10.04.”
    – and than:
    “sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade”?

    I mean… where is the connection? Either I compile it by myself and install it or I download the binary from the repo… as the later is not an option at the moment (as there is no 2.6.35 binary) there must be something mixed up or I completely wrong 🙂

    Are you sure about that you’ve wrote?
    I think you might be talking about Ubuntu 10.10 or some PPA/other repository for this kernel.
    I don’t see linux-image-2.6.35-* in any official repository for Ubuntu 10.04.

  4. Richard Ayotte says:

    Hmm, I don’t see it in the PPA yet so I’m surprised to see it in the official repo. Did you mean 10.10?

  5. Jordanwb says:

    Xeros: I see linux-image.2.6.35-* in synaptic.

  6. Xarkam says:

    Me to don’t see a 2.6.35 kernel image in lucid repository.

    Choose which version to use. For 10.04 and Kernel 2.6.35 To date there is only one versão.Version is used on my PC and runs fine>

  8. slumbergod says:

    if you add the ppa for xorg-edgers with an interest in just trying out the new 2.6.35 kernel, how many of the other packages in the huge list are actually needed?

    Can you get by with just the kernel and the headers or do you need more?

  9. Oliver says:

    When do you think will it be available in the normal repositories?

  10. Georg says:

    Complementing the previous comment. I did not add the ppa. There are six packages listed. In my case I use the i386 and the two …. all.deb. Only four of the six packages. Nor do I believe it is included in the normal repositories, not for this version.

  11. slumbergod says:

    I installed the 2.6.35 kernel and headers from the xorg-edgers ppa.

    Wireless worked fine. I had been hoping that the brightness control might work better (I experienced a regression in its functioning after moving to lucid). Sadly, it was the same.

    Bluetooth broke for me.

  13. Fernanda says:

    Sadly, dist-upgrade borked my 10.04. I don’t have vmlinuz anymore. All kernels are gone except memtest

    anyone know how I can resurrect my machine? 🙁
