No, it's to do with secureboot module (driver) signing.

Is this a UEFI system ? .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS

BIOS

I was pretty sure it was but best to be certain  ;)

So inlight of these last two posts PCNetSpec would I be correct in believing this has no relevance for my system & as far as you can see the kernel updates were installed correctly?

You're right they have no relevance for your system, the modules referenced are obviously being loaded .. I think the best course of action would be to just wait and see if they disappear after the next kernel update.

The other option might be to move to the 3.19 kernel series now .. but I don't think it's necessary.

Piece of advice though .. if you ever start an update, LET IT FINISH even if you spot something you don't like .. far better to remove what you don't like after successful installation than to risk screwing up your system with half installed system files ;)

Absolutely PCNetSpec - that's what I was flapping about. I know you say moving to 3.19 isn't necessary but it would be nice to "clean up" the kernel - three questions if I may:

1. Would it work on my laptop?
  Specs:
Code: [Select]
System:    Host: mick-Inspiron-1501 Kernel: 3.16.0-62-generic i686 (32 bit) Desktop: N/A Distro: Peppermint Six
Machine:   System: Dell product: Inspiron 1501
           Mobo: Dell model: 0UW744 Bios: Dell version: 1.7.0 date: 11/24/2006

Info:      Processes: 146 Uptime: 6 min Memory: 448.2/1890.1MB Client: Shell (bash) inxi: 1.9.17

2. Is it stable? (specifically for my system)

3. If so what's the best way to install it?

I've just had a look through my  /var/log/syslog specifically for my latest boot & I cant see any errors (to my untutored eyes anyway) - would it help to post it? I wouldn't be insecure doing so would I?
Regards

In fact we'll be moving you to the even more recent 4.2 kernel via the LTS enablement stack (as it's recently been updated).

1) I can see no reason why it wouldn't

2) Yes it's stable .. it's the kernel used in Ubuntu 14.04.4 and 15.10

3) (For anyone else reading this, these instructions are for 32bit Peppermint 6 ONLY) Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-lts-wily xserver-xorg-core-lts-wily xserver-xorg-lts-wily xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-wily xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-wily libwayland-egl1-mesa-lts-wilyonce that's finished...
REBOOT (it's important that you reboot)

Now post the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -aand
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep 3.16.0and
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep lts-utopic

Yeah you can do that if you want, but you should be okay to reboot now anyway.

Cheers PCNetSpec I've done that (removing libllvm3.5 freed up a few MB). Well I wasn't expecting this when I first posted & now you've put me on the "frontier" of Peppermint 6 OS  ;D  Anyway lesson learnt for me  {Re your advice in reply #18).
Should I notice much difference with this kernel? though I appreciate its the latest & shall I mark the topic SOLVED?  :)

You're welcome...

You probably won't notice much difference besides some added hardware support (*some* people have commented that '4' series kernels are a bit quicker on their systems .. but I can't say I've noticed a difference).

You can mark the topic solved if those "Request for unknown module key 'Magrathea: Glacier signing key: b996477e561b87c7074b21dd262f4ff201675ce7' err -11" messages have stopped in /var/log/syslog .. but in reality they're unimportant on a legacy BIOS system anyway (so I'll leave that up to you) ;)
WARNING: You are logged into reality as 'root' .. logging in as 'insane' is the only safe option.

Well after using my upgraded OS for about a day it feels a little snappier (i.e things seam to load a little quicker - Desktop Icons, application opening).
Have checked the last 2 syslog's in /var/log/ & no sign of  "Request for unknown module key 'Magrathea: Glacier signing key: b996477e561b87c7074b21dd262f4ff201675ce7' err -11" so that is good & I will mark the topic SOLVED.
So PCNetSpec just remains for me to thank you once again  :) This is a smashing OS & a friendly & helpful community forum - if i could just get my battery to charge on the old Inspiron I would be in Dickie's Meadow  :D
