With what kernel version will this be released? Or is it in some backports?

Since this is post-release and not a kitten-killer, it should probably
come directly from the stable tree. At the very least, it should be
accepted upstream (hopefully in Linus' tree, but at least in the acpi

Re: [LUCID] Turn off CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_ALSA_SUPPORT

I recently tried backporting support for the conexant codec found in
Thinkpads and it's actually not simple work. Due to many changes in
patch_conexant.c it's actually not very simple to backport changes to
support the codec in the Thinkpads, would better be apart of
alsa-backports. 

By not disabling CONFIG_THINKPAD_ACPI_ALSA in the kernel config.
	- Users with any newer or upcoming Thinkpad will not be able to
          use ALSA backports to enable use of microphone port or docking
          stations port
	
	- Thinkpads cannot get Ubuntu Certified.

	- If a Thinkpad user installs alsa-backports there machine is
          not as functional as thinkpad-acpi cannot load due to it
          looking for symbols from older alsa in kernel.

	- As mentioned before this adds NO functionality currently.
          Not sure why it is on. Have not heard what it adds?

Currently Thinkpads are using generic HDA support (surprisingly it works
well). But not everything needed is supported (such as microphone jack
support). Also effected is Docking station microphone jack.

More Thinkpads are coming and will need to use alsa-backports.

Can someone please consider these issues with Lucid & Lucid+1.

					Thanks,

Clone out a specific kernel version for ubuntu karmic

Hi,
I wanted to checkout the Ubuntu karmic kernel version 2.6.28. How can I just check out this version based on the tag.
I just know the basis of git and I also did few google searches. Many of them talk about clone the repository, then checking out the 
tag. Please do help me on this,since I cannot download the entire repo(>500mb) as my connection is slow.


Command : git clone git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-karmic.git  - takes out the full repository 
tried git clone: --reference linux-2.6.28 git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-karmic.git (not working, this reference does not seem to work)

I also cannot checkout tarball archives using git
Command: git --format=tar --remote=git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ubuntu-karmic.git Ubuntu-2.6.28 >archive.tar

Thank You.

Regards

This assumes you have linux-2.6.28 as an existing git repo.

If you do not actually want the full history, you can download a snapshot
instead with git web interface: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git, click the
"snapshot" link besides the commit tree.

Or you may search shallow clone of git, this, though may require a more
recent git binary.
