Sickening sight from Mint-X

Post by austin.texas »

I was horrified when I looked at the /boot folder and saw vmlinux-3.11.0-12-generic with a Windows logo !!!

I quickly changed from the default Mint-X icon set to a different icon set, and ran to the bathroom to gargle with battery acid to get the repulsive taste out of my mouth. My vmlinux was defiled ! Polluted !

This has been the case for ages, and I'm surprised you've only just noticed it ¬¬
Problems? Tell us EXACTLY what you've done and what you expected to happen, IN DETAIL. That will save us questions, and we should get along better,

I have dysgraphia. This means I might have understood you incorrectly through no fault of my own.

One of the first things I always do with a new install is to switch to List View. The Icon View here happened accidentally.

It's because the kernel version is 3.11.

Get it?? Windows 3.11?
