Was wondering how I would go about installing Linux Kernel 3.0 with pae enabled in Natty? Is there a PPA available with this included or do I have to compile from scratch?

compile it... :) – Uri Herrera Jun 28 '11 at 7:26
I've been trying to find a good tutorial for this. Any recommendations? – Dean Thomson Jun 28 '11 at 7:38
Interesting xD So what are the big changes? NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. Sure, we have the usual two thirds driver changes, and a lot of random fixes, but the point is that 3.0 is *just* about renumbering, we are very much *not* doing a KDE-4 or a Gnome-3 here. No breakage, no special scary new features, nothing at all like that. We've been doing time-based releases for many years now, this is in no way about features. If you want an excuse for the renumbering, you really should look at the time-based one ("20 years") instead. – RobinJ Jun 28 '11 at 8:31

If you want to try directly installing the Oneiric kernel version, you can pull the .deb files you need from:

Otherwise, you can try automated daily builds of the current upstream kernels here: Though the -pae i386 kernel is not available here yet.
