Due to a kernel bug I cannot use 2.6.38-11-generic, so I'm using 2.6.32-28-generic.

When will there be a new kernel in 11.04?

can you specify which "new 2.6.38" bersion you want? – Alaukik Sep 27 '11 at 12:33

Since ubuntu does not follow the rolling release model. No new software except a security update is introduced in the repositories and therefore a new kernel will not be available.

If you still want to use a new kernel release you can try mainline builds.

I think he's asking when he's going to get a new 2.6.38 kernel. – Jorge Castro Sep 25 '11 at 17:59
@JorgeCastro the question is not clear enough and if he wants 2.6.38-11-generic then that is already in the repo (…) :? – Alaukik Sep 25 '11 at 18:06
i want the "new 2.6.38" not 2.6.38-11 – LanceBaynes Sep 26 '11 at 5:43
