Never could get the 32-bit rc(s) working right on Peppermint.  Decided to hold off for awhile, and 4.9.8 is working fine on my ancient iron (circa 2004) !

You do realise you can now upgrade the entire graphics stack too via the HWE (used to be known as the LTS Enablement Stack) ?
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

It's not "quite" ready for the main repo release, so you'll need to enable the "proposed" repo.

it updates the kernel to the 16.10 (4.8 series), and the graphics stack too.

Just thinking it should bring the graphics stack more in line with the 4.9 kernel you're using now .. a LOT of people have said 16.10 is better for gaming than 16.04, so maybe this will improve that, but I'm not enough of a gamer to be able to judge.

Yeah, might do that.  I generally don't worry about graphic stacks.  Thx for the reminder.

The 'trick' with proposed is to use it like salt n' pepper.  Enable it, sprinkle it on, and disable it again.

The 'problem' with proposed, these days, is there are a lot of incomplete packages in there, so you don't want to leave proposed enabled and forget about it.  It'll bite you in the azz sooner or later.   ;)
