    Exclamation Supposed Bug Fix in Kernel 3.2.30 Failed to fix my Samsung Laptop

    Ive been having an issue since summer regarding a screen flicker and system freeze. I reported the bug and tested various kernels. The only one that worked, w ubuntu 12.04, was a 3.6.3-rc...blah...blah...blah.

    It was a test kernel that worked, and I was running as temporary solution until update finally finished. I then switched to finished updated 3.2.30 kernel, and still have the same problem!

    Should I just look through various 12.04 precise-kernels, or should i just revert to using 11.10? I am in grad school and really need my laptop to work!
