You should use mintUpdate and then you get the right headers
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Sorry for bothering. I had some problems with mint update that just got solved, so now it should be fine.

Thanks a lot!

So when updated the kernel which of the following should be checked and then installed?

Do like Husse said. Use "Mint Update" instead of "synaptic" and install the files that are checked there for you.

Democracy is 2 wolves and a lamb voting on the menu. Liberty is an armed lamb protesting the electoral outcome. A Republic negates the need for an armed protest.
