I have downloaded latest ubuntu server edition but after installing its showing kernel of 3.2.0-23 Generic kernel,which is a development version. So how can i change to stable release with out compiling??
To put this stuff in a real answer: You have a production version. Linux version numbering has changed a lot and the odd/even method haven't been used since 2.6.0 has been published years ago, as there are no development kernel versions anymore like in 2.3.x or 2.5.x
In 3.x the x has the same meaning as it had in 2.6.x, and it's just an increasing number, with 2 following 1.
