highno <reply> A higher version number does not mean that it's better. Especially with packages such as the linux kernel. The packages in the Ubuntu repositories are stable and will work fine. You should have a better reason than "newer" when considering compiling from source or using 3rd party repos. PriceChild

hack $hr$We hold these truths to be tautological, that all processes are created equal, that they are endowed by their Programmer with certain unreducable flags, that among these are const, static, and the pursuit of reentrancy. <deleted><reply>When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the technical bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the transistor, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Moore and of Mealy's Machine entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should delcare the causes which impel them to the singularity.
