Maybe it'd be easier to just try a 4 series kernel directly from Ubuntu's kernel PPA and hope they've fixed it ?

But I forgot to draw your attention to this bit on the page I linked to:-

Quote
In order to make your kernel "newer" than the stock Ubuntu kernel from which you are based you should add a local version modifier. Add something like "+test1" to the end of the first version number in the debian.master/changelog file, before building. This will help identify your kernel when running as it also appears in uname -a. Note that when a new Ubuntu kernel is released that will be newer than your kernel (which needs regenerating), so care is needed when upgrading. NOTE: do not attempt to use CONFIG_LOCALVERSION as this _will_ break the build.

Mark all this is unknown territory for me, I'll follow whatever advice you suggest :)

First read the bit I just added to my last posting .. you could try rebuilding the kernel with a new later version ?

or do you want to try the easier option of installing say the 4.2 kernel from Ubuntu first ? .. if so I'll type up instructions.

OK, first if you're using proprietary graphics drivers I *STRONGLY* suggest switching back to the open sourced versions and rebooting BEFORE continuing.

It's IMPORTANT that you reboot after switching back to the open source graphics drivers to load them before continuing .. you can re-apply them after installing the new kernel.



OK, if this is the 64bit version of peppermint, run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/Desktop/4.2.3-kernel
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/4.2.3-kernel
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.2.3-unstable/linux-headers-4.2.3-040203-generic_4.2.3-040203.201510030832_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.2.3-unstable/linux-headers-4.2.3-040203_4.2.3-040203.201510030832_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.2.3-unstable/linux-image-4.2.3-040203-generic_4.2.3-040203.201510030832_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
once that's finished .. REBOOT

When rebooted, check you're now on the 4.2.3 kernel with
Code: [Select]
uname -a
Once you're happy, you can delete the 4.2.3-kernel directory from your desktop .. and try switching back to the proprietary graphics drivers if required.

OK, you're going to have to remove the 4.2.3 kernel and compile the 3.16 kernel again but giving it an extension to its version number so it has a higher priority to the one from Ubuntu.

Do you know how to boot back to the 3.16 kernel then remove the 4.2.3 one ?

I know how to boot into a different kernel, not so sure about removing one though  :-[

I was expecting more than that .. can you also post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep linux-headers

[EDIT]

My mistake .. typo in first command .. it should have read:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep 4.2.3
