Hi, it seems that the mainline kernel updates do not longer work for Mint 13. I sucessfully installed the precise
kernel 3.3.7 and 3.4.0,
on my 64bit MATE laptop, but i never managed to install one of the quantal
After some search i found instructions that (at least for me) seem to work:
Here you find the download links and installation instructions for the actual Quantal kernel for precise LTS:http://packages.qa.dev.stgraber.org/qat ... /downloads
Here you can see which is the actual kernel:http://packages.qa.dev.stgraber.org/qat ... /testcases
By now it is kernel 3.5.0-2.2~precise1
I gave it a try with kernel 3.5.0-1.1~precise1 first on my test-pc and it worked perfectly, so i tried it on my notebook and it worked as well.
Just follow the instructions in the first download link for installing and uninstalling. For uninstalling you may have to adapt the name of your kernel.
At least it worked on both of my pc's. The kernel 3.5.0-2.2 runs well, with my Mint 13 Mate on my notebook, no severe problems.
Google-Earth does not start with 3.5, and the wake-up-function from standby does not work properly - thats the only problems i noticed so far.
My notebook runs longer as it does with the 3.2 Kernel, obviously the energy saving functions fit better to my hardware.
