    I noticed distinct differences: -rc4 booted faster and cleaner, but was prone to crash for several differrent (and NOT repeatable) situations. -rc5 seems to boot much slower, and the only noticeable problems are with 1 ) KDE desktop effects + powersaving profile (unplug, changing to powersave profile crashes X server) and 2) DM gdm seems to "lose" the date and time (DM kdm is OK).

    -rc6 just popped up, so I will check it before punching out more 'zillas.

    Note: The date/time problem, first thought to be CMOS, seems related to systemd and/or Intel graphics, and does NOT occur on ATI graphics. Also, a hard power-off (I know, not a good idea) shows no evidence of superblock date/time corruption.

    Further, I am running "almost" factory Xorg on the Intel laptop. That may have a lot to do with the problems. If I can not identify the culprits, I can back off Xorg and test the kernel again.

    I see that the H Open Source has another installment in their kernel 3.3 Series:



    Kernel Log: Coming in 3.3 (Part 3) – Architecture and infrastructure

    by Thorsten Leemhuis

    A long line-up of changes to the code for memory management will fix problems and improve performance in some areas. The kernel now supports the Large Physical Address Extension (LPAE) and boots on x86 EFI systems even without a boot loader. Read More ...

    Kernel Log: Coming in 3.3 (Part 4) – Drivers


    by Thorsten Leemhuis

    From Linux 3.3, the nouveau driver will support newer GeForce chips and Intel's RC6 GPU power saving technology should finally work properly. The Poulsbo graphics driver and some Hyper-V drivers have left the staging area, while drivers for Android have entered it.

    Smile Re: Linux Kernel 3.3 RC7 has Been Released To Test - Post Your Comments Here!

    Just found and installed Linux 3.3.0-rc7-1.2-desktop x86_64 into openSUSE 12.1 tonight. All is working just fine and no problems to report. I was thinking this might be the final release, but I guess not. I found this from Linus:

    From Linus Torvalds <>
    Date Sat, 10 Mar 2012 14:09:04 -0800
    Subject Linux 3.3-rc7

    I had been hoping that -rc6 would be the last -rc, but no such luck.
    Things just haven't calmed down sufficiently for me to feel comfy
    doing a final 3.3 release without another -rc, so here we are: 3.3-rc7
    is out.

    Now, none of the fixes here are all that scary in themselves, but
    there were just too many of them, and across various subsystems.
    Networking, memory management, drivers, you name it. And instead of
    having fewer commits than in -rc6, we have more of them. So my hope
    that things would calm down simply just didn't materialize.

    I really would prefer not having an -rc8, though. And I do think we're
    in fairly good shape, I just didn't think we were quite there yet for
    a release. Thus this will hopefully *really* be the final -rc.

    Linus

    It will be 3.4. Do not expect 4.0 until after 3.30+. Linus bailed on 2.6.X when
    X would have gone from 39 to 40.

    Well we have come to the end of the line for this message thread as kernel 3.3 final has been released. I see that my first message was on 19-Jan-2012 and today is 20-Mar-2012, so we made it through a final kernel release is just two scant moths this time. In any event, I guess that openSUSE 12.2 now has a stable kernel 3.3 base to build upon. In a separate note, I also see that kernel 3.2 has made it up to 3.2.12, which seems interesting in such a short time span, at least to me. just s before, everyone is welcome to post some final words for kernel 3.3 rc's as another goes final on us.

    Thanks as always for all of your comments you have posted to this thread.

    I know its late, but updated yesterday to kernel 3.3, so far so good except watching TV with a Tevii S470 is now extremely choppy. I wend back to the latest 3.2.10, no issues with that one.
