I downloaded wubi.exe from the NZ mirror. See the file at the bottom of this page
The installation worked fine and I am running Ubuntu now. But it seems to have installed Ubuntu 12.04 with headers for Linux kernel 3.5 (instead of 3.2)
Furthermore, when I tried
apt-get install linux-source, it installed kernel source for 3.2.
Output of various commands is seen below.
Can anyone shed light on what might have contributed to this version mismatch ?
$ lsb_release -a No LSB modules are available. Distributor ID :Ubuntu Description :Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS Release :12.04 Codename :precise
$ uname -a (says 3.5 is running)
Linux ubuntu 3.5.0-25-generic #39~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 26 00:07:14 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux $ cat /proc/version Linux ubuntu 3.5.0-25-generic #39~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 26 00:07:14 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
(Linux headers for 3.5 got installed during normal installation; later I did apt-get for the linux-source and it downloaded source for 3.2 as seen below)
