I reported a bug on Ubuntu and now the person assigned to me is asking me to test the latest upstream kernel:

could you please test the latest upstream kernel available from the very top line at the top of the page (the release names are irrelevant for testing, and please do not test the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue.

I've installed kernels before and used them, but by "latest upstram kernel", did he mean the latest kernel found on http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/?C=N;O=D for my particular distro(this) or this one??


They mean not the latest kernel for Ubuntu distro, but latest kernel released upstream.

I suggest testing 4.0.5 and 4.1rc6.

Officially latest released kernel is 4.0.5. But a fix may be found in release candidate.

And you see that they wrote release names are irrelevant for testing.
