  1. thank you very much!

  2. Great stuff ! I install successfully this new kernel on two of my Linux OS : Linux Mint 13 LTS & Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. So far, so good.
    Thanks anyway for the trick.

  3. You’re missing the invocation of wget in the third command for 64-bit systems.

  4. I upgraded the kernel succesfully. But I am having problem in installing drivers.
    Error is
    make: *** /lib/modules/3.10.10-031010-generic/build: No such file or directory.
    I have installed buid essentials as well. Did I missed something?
