    Sorry, I didn't see that you had the -rt tag at the end of your installed kernel... in that case, you might get stuck with UMS (3D might work, X might be cranky, not sure), and not KMS, and I'm not sure what other issues you'll run into. If you don't need the real-time kernel, it's an easy upgrade (just switch to another kernel and go), otherwise it might be a bit trickier.
    Thanks, Veerappan.

    KMS isn't really important to me, so I'm not too concerned on that count. I use this machine mainly for audio production (hence the rt kernel), so 3D isn't exactly critical, either. But some occasional random gaming violence is good for the soul, so having 3D working properly would be a nice plus.

      Does anyone know a way to use the 2.6.32 lucid kernel in karmic? I appears they bump the binutils dependencies (which in turn requires a news libc) so one can't use those packages in karmic as such.

      In addition, the mainline-ppa seems kinda stuck, there's still no 2.6.33.1 and there are new 2.6.32.*-lucid builds, but with errors.

      What I'm really after is a reasonably maintainted kernel with as much latest KMS technology built into it while not having to compile it myself :-) So far I'm using 2.6.33 from the mainline-ppa, but I felt it would be nice to use the lucid kernel.

        Give liquorix a try, it's a prebuilt zen-kernel, has some fancy schmancy stuff like BF scheduler.

          It would be nice to run a java benchmark on these platforms too, using the same latest release, as that would be very useful.

          thanks

            My config: Intel Core i3-330M, 3GB RAM DDR3, / - ext4, /home - ext3, ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 512MB, fglrx, Ubuntu 10.04 RC (or maybe final), 2.6.32-21-generic.
            I have 90FPS both Quake III Arena (with 8 bots, Wine 1.1.43) and OpenArena (no bots)
