    Peppermint dev indicated that several users have told him, the 3.11 kernel solved a lot of bugs -- peeked his interest IMO.
    
    I *think* 3.12 is even better. It solved a problem I was having  on_the_road with the AT&T wifi system,

    Could not agree more I have a Hp DV2700Se with the dreaded broadcom wireless adapter but kernel 3.12 installed it out the box.(Yeah)

    @ runrickus

    You are a great encourager. Much needed in these forums. Compiling a kernel is somewhat like composing a symphony (or actually performing one). It's about timing, structure, forms, colours, syncopation, multitasking and building a carousell of sound from beginning to ending. Using a works by Mozart, Beethoven, Greig or whomever, is a good way to contrast descriptions when paralleling them to compiling kernel formats. Although we are working with machines that may not allow us to improvise in the same way, let's say, on a piano for instance, the kernel can still be modified to perform as if it had been improvised - because improvised music, discordant, consonant or disonant is always perfectly beautiful and unified by it's point and counterpoint and such then as a programmer interjects to experiements with an alternate set of code, even though it has to follow a strickter set of rules, can still bring it to discovery of new colours , functions and processes that echo structures of the musical form.

    Same here on my Acer Extensa 4420. What a pain. I am doing a fresh install now of trusty - soon to install the new kernel .

    Thanks Ventrical! Very that's very Gracious of you.
    I was so burnt out on testing, since 2005 Novel Suse, But I did get free hardware though: any who you and VinDSL have changed my perspective.
    Having fun again.
    Not trying to get all sappy here, But you two just Enhance my experience in the process..

    Actually the old method worked fine after this fresh install:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

    Oh.... So installing the 3.12 rc pulls in a free-source driver to make that work then without bcmwl-kernel-source?

    Hrm...

    Think we got a regression going on here (I've experienced this problem in the past, with other RCs).

    Anybody else having problems with their USB flash drives?!?!?

    I've got 3.12-rc7 installed on my Latitude and desktop box. USB sticks work on neither.

    Both of them recognize USB flash drives as being plugged-in, but neither will mount them -- automount nor allow a manual mount.

    EXAMPLE:

    Code:
    vindsl@Zuul:~$ tail -f /var/log/syslog

    Seems to be a kernel issue. Everything works fine when I boot into older kernels...
