    It's easy enough to run under the latest kernel if you want to. I'm running 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 on several Debian machines ( Wheezy and Squeeze )

    On Debian, it's a pretty quick and painless process to build a new kernel, install, and reboot once your initial .config file is set up.

    Its not difficult to run 3.5.x but I've found the sid and experimental packages are causing problems. For example I can't install skype or linux-headers-3.5-trunk-amd64

    Never mind.FYI,
    Ben Hutchings has confirmed that he will maintain Linux kernel version 3.2 as a long-term kernel at kernel.org for an indefinite amount of time. While this was announced by the developer last weekend, it has now also been mentioned by the primary stable and long-term kernel maintainer, Greg Kroah-Hartman, in the release email for Linux 3.2.16; with the release of this version on Monday morning, Kroah-Hartman has discontinued the maintenance of Linux 3.2 and handed it over to Hutchings.

    Thanks all, but I'd rather stick with debian proper repos. The only reason I would want a more recent kernel is to play with the newer graphics goodies which would mean I'd have to compile the entire stack all the time.
