Linux Kernel 3.6 is here

I had to upgrade a Pangolin Precise to Linux 3.6 to issue a bug on Linux Vs my Logitech mouse.
So far I can say:

  • Nvidia_current 295.40 fails to build module in 3.6.0 amd64 (I suspect it would also on i386) Solution: install nvidia-current 304.51 from ubuntu xedgers. Works out of the Box.
  • Vmplayer VMware Player 4.0.2 build-591240 builds effortlessly (we no more breack havoc with Vmplayer on any major kernel issue…).

Installing mainline kernel is easy, and apart from disturbing Nvidia the new kernel just stays beside the stock kernel, having a different ABI namespace.
