Optimus Kernel 3.3.7 released

You can download the latest version of Optimus Kernel which is based on the following recipes :

  • Linux 3.3.7 (if you have proprietary graphic card drivers installed in your system you may need to reinstall them after the installation of the new kernel release)
  • Ubuntu/Debian patchsets
  • BFS and BFQ patches
  • In-house optimizations

Go Grab your Packages from the Download Page >>>>>

Optimus Change log :

        -- Rebuild and synced with 3.3.7 vanilla Linux kernel (for what is included please read the kernel log on website)
        -- Enabled Control Group support.
        -- Used full CK patchset prepared by Con Colivas instead of just applying BFS patch.
        -- Patched with AppArmor 2.4 compatibility patch due to stupid AppArmor messages and delay during boot.

  1. Thx. Will there be a 3.4 version soon?

    1. Yes, just hold on a few days more... we are testing it now.. Best to be sure that it works than to brake a system :)

  2. It was very nice article and it is very useful to Linux learners.We also provide Linux online training
