    I'll see if I can compile the kernel, again. Mainline works great...
    WOW! that has to be a first..
    I did lose gnome-shell-extensions they show in tweak tool with no errors or anything Xed out but if I tick them nothing.

    The only thing that's still causing me reasons to rant is the fact that the dkms is still failing to build every time a new kernel comes out forcing me to rebuild it manually. Even though it's supposedly fixed - Bug #1201516

    Been doing your drill on my desktop box with unfettered success...

    Code:
    HOWTO Compile a Custom Kernel in /home, paul_in_london-style
    
    # Here are the steps I use, to compile a custom kernel in my /home partition.
    
    # You may need to install some additional packages/libraries, depending on your distro, to do this (noted below).
    
    # Kill any unnecessary background processes, such as Conky, audio/video player, temp monitor, email client, et cetera.
    
    # Download tar from this pool: https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.x/testing => (to whichever path you wish).
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ cd ~/Downloads/Kernels  # (example)
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ tar zxvf ~/Downloads/Kernels/linux-3.12-rc5.tar.gz  # (extract the files, preserving the tree - example)
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ cd linux-3.12-rc5  # (example)
    
    # Copy & paste a working .config file (from /usr/src or /boot) to this folder, before running the following make commands.
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ make-kpkg clean
    
    # You may need to install 'make-kpkg' (sudo apt-get install kernel-package) to perform the above, and repeat.
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ make localmodconfig
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ make menuconfig  # (make changes, if necessary, and/or save and exit)
    
    # If you get menuconfig errors, you may need to install ncurses, libncurses5-dev, libncursesw5-dev, et cetera, and repeat.
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ time fakeroot make-kpkg -j3 --initrd --append-to-version=-vindsl-custom-1 kernel-image kernel-headers
    
    # Lastly, you may need to install fakeroot also, to perform the above, and repeat.
    
    # Install the resultant .deb files, as you normally would.  I use: 
    
    vindsl@Zuul:~/Downloads/Kernels$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb  # (example)
    
    # Reboot.
    
    # That's it.  Have fun!
    And, the survey says...

    A bug has cropped up on my lappy (Peppermint Four/Raring - hacked). Compiles just fine, but won't install because of some *supposed* unmet dependencies - which are actually being met, but unrecognized by the OS.

    That's what I normally do, but Paul's 'localmodconfig' regimen cut my compiling time by 75%.

    I had to go the mainline route on my Latitude.

    rc5 mainline works fine on my notebook, but the custom compiled kernel won't install. It *thinks* I have unmet dependencies.

    To be fair to Peppermint Four, I've been hacking it up, just like a +1 install.

    The custom kernel gig worked the first time, but I probably added something to the OS that's making it fail.

    If it keeps up, I'll do a fresh install, and start from scratch...

    Thats why I dpkg -i I found all kinds of oddities, I wager paul has had a few also.
    Plus I like testing again, just less to contend with(Lazy)!

    I thing version numbers or cksums or something similar trip things up doing it that way..
    Yes I have a HP DV2700 SE Media Thought about using Paul's method on it but took Door #2 and dpkg -i
    wich can be a touchy ordeal but kernel 3.12 ROCKS!! That little lappy just sings...
