for the Beaglebone?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Well that depends, are you an end user who doesn't want to debug
anything, well the one that was installed via the script/demo image..
:wink:

Otherwise the v3.8-rc branch...

Hi Robert,

thank you for your response.

If the scale goes from "end-user" upto "kernel-developer" I would call
myself a "mid-user"... :wink:

I want to explore my beaglebone system wise. So I am not the
"end-user" in sense of "using desktop applications and writing
email and documents".
But I dont want to debug things previously working with the
the kernels of the 3.2.* branch.

On the other hand I dont want to change "stable" for
"boring stable".

I still 3.2* the one and only for my purpose... ?

Best regards and thank you for your help in advance!
Have a nice weekend!

Hi Robert,

What advantages ( if any ) does the 3.8 kernel have over the 3.2?

Over 13 months of development which include new features and fixes...

Regards,

..And of course a lot of new bugs.. This process is endless. New features add new bugs, new bugs require new fixes and so on..

You can read the release notes for each kernel version to figure out what's inside. Focus on features you need and if you don't need new features it's better to stay with the version you tested
