Re: USB Devices Laggy

This seemed to fix it, however this should be fixed by the Mint team I think. SOLUTION: Note that on newer kernels the drm_kms_helper module may not be loaded by default. One extra step gets this working: sudo su - modprobe drm_kms_helper echo N> /sys/module/drm_kms_helper/parameters/poll echo "...

Upgrade Needed RC to Actual Release

I was wondering if the RC of Petra I downloaded needs to be replaced with the now fully released mint 16?
I have run a distro upgrade and it seems to not have really done much.

Is a full replacement required ?
