Installed 3.17 on this Dell E5500. This SSD drive has tested the other kernels on the Compaq CQ 57 and the Compaq showed no love for the kernels 3.15 on up. Same on Dell XT2 Touchscreen Laptop. Here is hoping there is some love coming from this Dell E5500.
I will be testing this and putting the kernel through it paces later.

It is always a good sign when no kernel panic kicks on on older gear.  :D

Nice one rokytnji. 3.18 should be out soon. I'm personally running 3.18-rc5 on LL 2.0 no problems, smooth as butter :)

Jerry, I need at least 3.17 so that my touchpad works. Do you recommend I wait for you to add the necessary modules to the custom kernel or should I install the latest from mainline?

You can try 3.17 from the LL repo.

Weird, I didn't see it before. I was able to install 3.18-rc6 from Ubuntu mainline anyhow. Thanks though.

@satty is there any specific reason you require 3.17? If it is causing an issue, go back to what you were using.

3.18 Linux Lite kernel is available for 32 & 64bit machines. As per usual, please read the warning below.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.18.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.18.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

WARNING: This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty. If you have a spare pc or laptop lying around with ATI, nVidia or Intel graphics cards we really need your feedback and your results.

The D620 is now running 3.18. - currently getting a kernel panic defaulting back to 3.13.  I will push it to the NUC this afternoon and see if it does the same.
