For Lucid we have aimed primarily on stabilisation and supportability. As such we do not expect there to be any radical configuration changes in these kernels. There has been a drive to commonise and standardise options between architectures and flavours where at all possible to help standardise the experience. There has also been a drive to pull out to modules some sub-systems which are commonly replaced by users, such as HID, and also pulling out the majority of the PATA and SATA drivers as it is most common to only require a single one of these. We have also enabled KMS for all graphics hardware where it is supported.
To aid in this comparison we have generated a delta report between Karmic and Lucid which shows all items which have changed and how the value has changed. This report can be found at the URL below:
To facilitate series to series comparison we include pointers to both the full Karmic and Lucid configurations for each flavour, all of which can be found at the URL below:
