so I followed the similar instructions when they were released for 3.10. After which, I lost connection to the Internet and couldn’t figure out how to fix it.I attempted to use the uninstall feature that was listed but that didn’t work either. I ended up having to do a full reinstall of Linux Mint 15. just so that I am certain, Am I to type in all three instructions for 64 bit and then install?
paste the code into terminal and hit enter to run one by one
just tried to install on kubuntu 12.04 (wich is updated regularly) and got these erreo messages at the end of install (postinstall)
any suggestions please ?
hello, thanks for your link, i actually have a laptop using the integrated radeon hd video chip (using the amd A6 quad core cpu) and not using any nvidia hardware.
when using the 3.11 kernel laptop works fine but moving windows give jerky moves during the move and after stoppming the displacement, display is ok.
i re-started the dpkg command wich gave me other and more detailed errors (related to postinst), bu as it looked to go through the whole install process i decided to give this kernel a trial and rebooted the laptop
after restarting system looks functionnal
uname -a gives :
yes three times “x86_64 !
hope to get more infos !
I get three times x86_64 too on my Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit with the default Linux Kernel version.
You can remove the kernel by using dpkg in this order:
That’ll remove it, since aptitude seems to not like dealing with dependancies.
