Canonical Preps New PPA for Ubuntu 17.10 Users to Test the Latest Linux Kernels

The news comes days after the Ubuntu Kernel team over at Canonical published their bi-weekly newsletter to inform the Ubuntu Linux community about the fact that Linux kernel 4.11 landed in the proposed channel of Ubuntu 17.10, as well as that they’ve prepared a new PPA (Personal Package Archive) to make testing easier. We took a look at this PPA and it turns out it’s used for building pre-release kernels for a bunch of Ubuntu Linux releases, including Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus), Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), and, of course, Ubuntu 17.10. However, Canonical does not recommend you to subscribe to it.
