Essential Discussions on the likely mainline kernel version and appropriate kernel flavors for Q. The current list of arch's and flavor's for Precise are listed below. Distro - Precise 12.04 Arch: Flavour -- Description i386: generic -- kernel for desktop machines with less than 4GB of ram i386: generic-pae -- kernel for desktop machines with more than 4GB of ram i386: virtual -- kernel for virtual machine use (KVM/EC2) amd64: generic -- kernel for desktop/server machines amd64: virtual -- kernel for virtual machine use (KVM/EC2) armel/armhf: omap -- kernel for ARM OMAP-3 hardware armel/armhf: omap4 -- kernel for ARM OMAP-4 hardware Ports - Precise 12.04 Arch: Flavour -- Description powerpc: powerpc-smp -- PowerPC with SMP support powerpc: powerpc64-smp -- PowerPC64 with SMP support

Essential Review of the kernel configuration for Q 12.10. This will concentrate on confirming the policy for various option types as well as new options. For major new options, we will discuss and confirm the selection of each.
hardware-q-kernel-delta-review
100% of 19
Essential Review of the current Ubuntu Kernel patch delta from upstream. This session will look at the current delta comprised of both patches to the core and the ubuntu specific drivers. The aim is to record what we are carrying, review the reasons for that component(s) to be carried, and recommend replacements, updates, cleanups, upstreaming etc of those components.
