After using Linux Mint 10 since it's release, I lost my wired connection this morning; I'm not sure why. I have no sound with the current Linux kernel - no sound card is found. Should I use the earlier kernel, the speakers located in the laptop will work; however, the external speakers (my default) will not.
This is a great edition but it needs work.
I think you must have been very unlucky, particularly with the wired web connection; that seems most unusual!
However, you must have changed the update defaults if you have an updated kernel, as the normal system will not make that change, nor give you a new kernel, unless you set up the Mint-update to enable updates in section 4 and 5, which are actually noted as potentially unsafe.
If you can not get the new kernel to work properly, just boot to the older one from grub and then uninstall the newer one if you wish to, then reset the update defaults to sections 1 -3 only and you will not be bothered again.
