Kernel 3.2.5 comes with improvements in power saving. Are we going to install it?

After so much suffering, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief, as the 3.2.5 kernel, released a few days ago, solves the notorious problem of mismanagement of energy saving. However, some important things have not yet been resolved, such as the case of support for the Sandy Bridge Intel board.

For those interested in installing the new kernel on Ubuntu, follow these simple steps:

I386 (32bit) Systems

mkdir ~ / home / kernel

CD ~ / home / kernel

wget http://kernel.ubuntu/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.5-precise/linux-headers-3.2.5-030205_3.2.5-030205.201202061401_all.debwget http://kernel.ubuntu/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.5-precise/linux-headers-3.2.5-030205-generic_3.2.5-030205.201202061401_i386.debwget http://kernel.ubuntu/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.5-precise/linux-image-3.2.5-030205-generic-pae_3.2.5-030205.201202061401_i386.deb
