I have a fresh install of Linux Mint 14 on my H-P Pavilion DV7 Notebook, and it seems that I am running Kernel 3.5.0-17-generic. I have just read an article http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=amd_drm38_radeon&num=1
about great performance improvements on AMD Radeon Graphics Cards using the Linux 3.8 Kernel.
The card that I have is the Radeon HD 3200 series so I should see better everything. How can I (should I) install this Kernel?
As I mentioned I have a fresh install of Mint 14, and am not afraid of crashing my system. I have everything backed up, and usually try a few tweeks on every new install. I have tried another approach to improving my Radeon Driver, but that did not work well.
Any responses would be appreciated.
