Re: adding debian stable main?

hmmm...well,

for whatever reason the linux-base >4.3 dependency can't be found....
...so not sure to what extend I should fiddle with an otherwise perfectly nice system.

Will it be possible to upgrade from LMDE2 to LMDE3?

Cheers.

Re: adding debian stable main?

Thanks a lot.
That is exactly why I thought it is better to ask first.
I actually should have known this as I have the Jessie backports on my Bunsenlabs laptop.

So, thanks again for the help.

Merry Christmas.

adding debian stable main?

Re: Webcam not recognoized (Kernel / compile issue?)

Well....updating the kernel in LMDE2 seems easier said than done.

Moreover, the cam works on my 32 bit Bunsenlabs Hydrogen, which has
3.16.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2+deb8u5 (2017-09-19) i686 GNU/Linux

So the 3.16 is not the problem in general....

Re: Webcam not recognoized (Kernel / compile issue?)

Well, first thing is that the Lubuntu is a 32 bit, but I guess that this should not be the big deal as we only talk about kernel versions here. However, the Mint uname -a provides 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2+deb8u3 (2017-08-15) x86_64 GNU/Linux (interestingly Synaptic says 3.16.51, who kn...

Webcam not recognoized (Kernel / compile issue?)

I installed LMDE2 64 quite some time on the pc of my parents in law. Works fine and flawless. However, recently I ordered a webcam for them. It works fine on, e.g. Lubuntu 16 but is not recognized in their Mint. I get something like dmesg | less ... [113160.915880] usb 3-8: new high-speed USB device...
