I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 x64 as guest VM on Server 2012, and want to upgrade kernel to Linux 3.8, as the 3.8 kernel supports the balloon driver for dynamic memory and new IC (I assume).
Before upgrading, the mouse working was working; after upgrading to a generic 3.8 kernel the mouse doesn't work and no hv_timesource, hv_ballon driver is present.
I've tried to install the kernel from source enabling all hyper-v components with no luck. I've installed a 3.8 kernel with hyper-v support from v.s.cz/linuxhyperv.php but still want to compile my own custom kernel with Ubuntu patches.
The VM is configured with 2 virtual CPUs. CPU 2 is always under 100% load! Does not support SMP?
Therefore my questions are:
- How to enable Hyper-V modules? And, if this requires a custom build, then
- How to install kernel 3.8 from source on Ubuntu 12.10?
