Kernel 4.1 RC1 has been released on Kernel.org (https://www.kernel.org/). I assume it will show up in the Ubuntu Kernel PPA (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/?C=N;O=D) pretty quick.

O.K. so far, but haven't done much yet. Since the Ubuntu kernel configuration wasn't available yet, I just used the default for all the new configuration settings (and there were lots, which is normal for an RC1).

Greetings,
It has quite a change list but one noticeable change in usability is an improvement in the menu mouse click sensitivity that has been persistent in Firefox. The 37.0.2 update didn't fix it but this morning the problem seem fixed with the kernel update.

Kernel 4.1RC2 is now available (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1-rc2-vivid/). I have only a few hours on it. So far so good.


Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.

Hi.

I have given this kernel a whirl with 15.04. I was hoping 15.04 with its stock 3.19 kernel would solve my system lock-ups. No joy, so I might as well try this and hope for the best.

Greetings,
I have been using RC1 since yesterday morning with no issues. But getting ready to switch back to 3.19 for WW conversion.
