[ubuntu] Linux 3.8.8 Kernel on 12.04LTS

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have just installed the above kernel on my LTS system from here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ as it seems to run a lot smoother and faster on my Intel setup. (apparently lots of improvements in the 3.8 kernel) I also install the linux-firmware, package from here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/linux-firmware as my system squealed about "possible missing firmware" This seemed to resolve the issue. My question is, have I now compromised the stabilty of my LTS system by installing 13.04 packages, or should I be ok? (Hardware)
