I thave installed Mint 14 Cinnamon recently . I am newbee .Mint works fine except I couldnt get updated my Nvidia grapics card driver. while I have been trying to figure it out and I decided to try to update my Kernel version from 3.5 to 3.7 and I used this code on terminal:
Code: Select all
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/47950494/upubuntu.com/linux-kernel-3.7.1 -O linux-kernel-3.7.1
chmod +x linux-kernel-3.7.1
sudo sh linux-kernel-3.7.1
After it start to download a few thing well, it ended up with a notice and stopped updating.The notice is :
Generating grub.cfg ...

after that I booted my laptop and ran terminal and wrote
uname -r on it
so I have no idea if I did something wrong..now Mints works the same. but I wanna know more about linux so the notice has something to do with my Nvidia card driver?
when I looked the System Settings > Details > Grapics it says my driver is Gallium 0.4 on NVA8
I am sorry if I ask a question which is asked often already but I count find a solution on internet.
