I recently did an update in Ubuntu 10.04 from kernel 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168 and lost my WIFI card, see posts:
Well I have installed Startup Manager and can now automatically boot into the old working kernel (37) but since there appears to be no cure for the latest kernel (38 it seems I will be stuck on this old version. (Still unassigned in Bug Report)
Question is, what do I loose by not upgrading and staying with the outdated kernel?
And another, is there a way to remove the non-working (38 kernel or should I just leave it alone?
I have 3 more machines and I'm afraid of updating them for fear of creating bricks...
