UBUNTU --
After failing to build working kernels for the past few weeks, the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel PPA is finally offering working daily Linux kernel builds.

Today's kernel build following Linux 4.4-rc3 is the first since the release candidates began to have a successful build of Linux 4.4. All the builds up to now were borked due to a Lustre/LNET dependency issue.

If you want to grab today's Linux kernel Git build of 4.4 for Ubuntu systems, you can do so here.

This means that there's finally a new kernel picked up by the benchmarking systems running all of the Ubuntu kernel tests over on LinuxBenchmarking.com so stay tuned for those numbers. I'll still be evaluating my own daily Fedora/Ubuntu kernel build server.
