    Code:
    Ck, performance patches, can be found  here.  Patches for upgrading your kernel can be found on the kernel.org homepage.
    Thanks for that. But what is the command to upgrade your kernel from an upgrade patch?

    Refer to the "patch" command on the first post of this thread.

    Anyone? If I copy the .config file doesn't that mean all my settings from the previous kernel should be copied over?

    You also have to get to the folder with the kernel source and type:
    Code:
    sudo make oldconfig
    just to be sure

    Is that the old kernel source or the new one?

    Also, what does a dot mean in the xconfig program? I understand a checkmark and an empty box, but I don't get the dot.

    theres a bug in the FGLRX, check out this bug report and also report your bug. Hopefully the DEV will fix this error since its more than 2month old now.

    Well it does. But in the UBUNTU kernels there are also a lot of custom patchs applied which are not in the VANILA kernel U are trying to compile. And its just possible that the support for TOSHIBA isnt in the default VANILA kernel.
    U could verify this with the 'make oldconfig' command.

    The dot means that it will compile as a module.

    You need to copy the .config file to the folder containing the new source. From there you need to use the command I suggested
