Will Ubuntu 12.04.1 include the new Linux kernel?
It looks like there are more recent kernels than the one I am using. Synaptic reports my version as 126.96.36.199.37(as my reference) I read the other day about kernel releases, forgetting to write down the version numbers. If, in fact, we run behind(Ubuntu) on upgrading our kernel thru the software updater, that would be ok, I just need to get my mind around that. Further information much appreciated!
It appears upon reading further on this, that I could install newer kernels, but that there is some risk involved. I have, in fact, decided to read more on the subject before proceeding. For instance, as a fail-safe, I could easily remove the kernel if it didn't suit (nvidia, etc) and go back to using my present kernel. Maybe more bother than it is worth? Opinions appreciated on this point as well, of course!
