Should I be concerned on the linux-libc-dev version?
Does it also need reverting back also or will that just change automajically with the next kernel update?

I certainly won't miss it, as I've took every precaution to avoid Macromedia/ Adobe Flash on any system since the turn of the millenium..
good riddance I say!  :P

sorry forgot to answer your last question.
No, I don't know how to boot into generic kernel  :-\

I only have one kernel in use according to the mint-updater 4.4.0-87

Looking for some help to get back on the normal kernel stream for PM7 respin x64.
I recently tried a Low Latency kernel for attached music devices/synthesizers midi etc..and I'm having difficulty getting back to the normal kernel.
I've tried via the mint-updater kernel section and mismatch errors occur at 98%  :(
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

regards,
acer

A quick question for PCNetSpec,  ;)

Currently on Firefox 54.0 and there has been an update released by Mozilla to 54.0.1 but nothing has come thru mint-updater within PM7.
see below:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/54.0.1/releasenotes/

Why hasn't there been an update via the mint-updater within PM7 although it has been released for over a week on Windowz?

Thanks in advance

Still on Pre-Respin PM7 and is standing the test of time, kodi abuse and being used more than the inferior  BSOD Operating Systems I have..anyway that's another matter.

Over time my lightDM GTK+ greeter is intermittently showing the screen or just not bothering sometimes.  >:(
Another thing it does is, briefly show the greeter screen and then quickly go to the desktop screen before I have a chance to log in within seconds of start-up.
is this connected? If so, how can it be fixed? Is there a way to reset this, so it works all the time again?

Thanks in advance.

All USB, SDCards and streaming, still have a USB floppy drive which comes in real handy for vintage computing tech.
Sometimes wish I still had my iomega zip drive  :(

I've had that many blank CD's, I used them are as coasters to sit my beer on, bird scarers for the garden and christmas tree decorations.
