I'm running LMDE 3.2.0-2-amd64 and need to incorporate some patches to my kernel to fix suspend issues. I know the fix made it into kernel 3.4 but isn't in 3.2 as the problem is reproducible on my system. I have read a few HOWTO guides and after experimenting with building custom kernels from kernel.org, liquorix, etc.. I would much rather stick with the standard kernel to mitigate any potential side effects - some of which I've seen including troubles with compiling nvidia DKMS, virtualbox modules, and other random system issues surrounding my procfs instances.
It seems that when I try to compile the "standard" kernel as above that is booted, it instead downloads the 3.2.9 sources and builds from that. I have tried that but in the end I wasn't able to get the system to recognize those headers. Am I missing something in trying to merely patch the existing kernel version shipping with LMDE?
Thanks in advance for the help.
