Last week i tried to upgrade my kernel according to this how-to: http://www.upubuntu.com/2013/02/install ... el-38.html.
This screwed up my complete system. After the reboot Cinnamon looked like the LXDE desktop. I tried to fix the graphic driver, nothing. It ended up in re-installing Mint by means of a new/fresh/clean installation.
So, my question is: Is Mint not capable enough doing a kernel upgrade as shown in the given link above?
