comment Will Linux Kernel 3.5 be coming to 12.04?
To disable autoupdating of 3.2 in my case, would I uninstall linux-generic? It seems like a parallel to linux-generic-lts-quantal, just for 3.2.

comment Need help to find/install up to date ATI drivers for kernel 3.5+
So you have a 3.7 kernel, but on the page you link to it says that it supports kernels 2.6 and on, up to 3.5. Can you use a 3.5 kernel? That is what comes default with Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal.

comment Will Linux Kernel 3.5 be coming to 12.04?
Mik, after installing the 3.5 kernel, you recommend uninstalling linux-image-current-generic and linux-current-generic. 1) Those are not installed on my system, but linux-generic, linux-image-generic, and linux-headers-generic are. Should I uninstall those? 2) If I remove these, will I have problems with autoupdating when I upgrade to, e.g., 12.10, 13.04, or later? 3) Will my 3.5 kernel autoupdate?

comment How to control fan noise in Ubuntu 12.04?
Knowing your hardware might be useful, as I believe it determines at least partially how the fans are utilized.

Does Windows still boot? Have you tried going through the Ubuntu install process again?
