View Full Version : upgrading to 3.16 kernel caused kernel panic

January 20th, 2015, 10:29 PM

my RTL8723BE PCIe Wireless Network Adapter gives me loads of trouble (disconnects and freezes every few minutes), and from researching in the forums i understood that the issue might be solved in the new kernel version 3.16 (I currently use 3.13).

I tried to upgrade to the new kernel according to the instructions here:

But when I reboot i can't get into linux and I get 'kernel panic' messages.

What are my next possible steps? How can i upgrade without causing this mass?

I'm a novice so I really shoot in the dark all the time, so it would be great if you could help or direct me to a easy instructions (I couldn't find anything that I could understand)

Hi, eli_fabrikant,

it is usually means that you forgot update your kernel modules.

Take a look on the https://github.com/alfredobonino/lnextinst. There are post install utility, hope this helps you.
