Ubuntu 22.04 LTS is set to launch next week, but if you’re planning to run it on a computer with one of Intel’s new 12th-gen Core processors, one of the first things you might want to do is upgrade the Linux kernel.

In other tech news from around the web, Amazon Kids+ has launched its first two original games, the Nokia C2 2nd-gen budget smartphone that HMD unveiled in February just passed through the FCC on its way to launch, and while you can’t go out and buy a Chromebook with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U processor yet, the folks at Chrome Unboxed got their hands on a pre-production model and put it through the paces, showing what a Chrome OS laptop can do when equipped with the sort of processor you’d typically find in a premium Windows thin and light notebook.

  1. Older Ryzen 3 series laptop chips would be ideal for chromebooks, but it looks like AMD doesn’t order those wafers anymore. It’s either high-end or low-end (and demand for high-end chromebooks is almost nonexistent). Looks like high-school kids are going to keep running celery chromebooks.

  2. I don’t keep up with the specifics of the Linux kernel from one version to the next, but I did run into the same situation putting Linux on a laptop with an 11th-gen Intel CPU just a few months ago. It would freeze playing video. I believe it was the kernel 5.15 that fixed it for me and I was happy to find it works with only one tiny quirk that I’ve noticed.
