    You can use this link:
    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
    However, the 3.8-rc1 kernel is mading for ubuntu 13.04, not 12.10

    I have had great results on recent Ubuntu and Mint installations by following the steps in this article: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild

    (Of course, instead of checking out the latest sources using git, I have been downloading the newer kernel sources directly from kernel.org).

    A word of warning! I just discovered today that the kernel packages create symbolic links from /lib/modules/xxx/build and /lib/modules/xxx/source to the directories where you actually build the kernel! I built my kernels out-of-tree in my home directory and now the symbolic links point nowhere. I am looking into why this happens and how to work around it.
