Re: Impossible to update kernel

Hmm there is no ndiswrapper involved with this card. Hi I'm back from my trip, and trying to get this solved again...! I'm not sure I understand your comment above. I've also tried installing a newer kernel from jessie-backports but it also breaks wifi.. I've tried doing the same with synaptics and...

Re: Reinstalling with separate home partition

Do you have off-machine storage? How big (full) is your current home directory? Big enough that I partitioned the disk so that I wouldn't have to backup my home everytime :) :) I personally don't see any advantage to a new username. It was to get rid of all hidden and confi files that wouldn't be n...

Reinstalling with separate home partition

Hi, Is the following the right way to go, when changing between distros or making fresh installs? reinstall over / with a different user name, mount the home partition as /home, copy over the files from the relevant folders of home/old_user to home/new_user (fast - same partition) delete (as root) t...

Hi, I've recently switched to Betsy MATE after unsuccessfully looking for a fix for Cinnamon running in software mode (see this thread for more info) Just like it was the case with Betsy Cinnamon, I cannot get the kernel to upgrade, I get the following error while installing the headers-generic Para...

Hi out of curiosity I created a live USB of LMDE MATE, and surprise it boots in hardware rendering mode... (my cinnamon stick gave me the warning even in live mode....) I am trying to make a new stick of cinnamon to see if something went wrong or if the problem really comes from cinnamon [edit] New ...

Re: Cinnamon 2.8.4 software rendering mode

Hi

Thanks very much, will try this tomorrow night, I've done a quick try already but could not install the kernel because was missing the kernel-headers... I'll look into it tomorrow. By the way, any reason why this kernel version would be different?

hope it works!

Re: Cinnamon 2.8.4 software rendering mode

Ok, I now have a better understanding of what's happening. The kernel updates actually work (apart from the ndiswrapper part, thus the wifi being broken), I checked with uname and from Grub. I tried with 4.3 and 4.2.6, and none corrected the software rendering mode bug ... I only wanted to update th...

Re: Cinnamon 2.8.4 software rendering mode

thanks for the tip I'll give it a try. Not a great chance that a kernel update alone will solve the problem though. and ironically, I have no problem with wifi.... i'll keep you posted [EDIT] I found a README file inside the latest 4.3 sources that I downloaded and used it as a guide. It didn't last...

Re: [Mint 15] Cinnamon running in software rendering mode

Hi,

Any idea how to adapt this method for LMDE Betsy? I'm having the software rendering mode bug on an Asus UX305 (intel graphics) but there is no /etc/lsb-release folder....!

Thanks
