I upgraded from LinuxMint 14 to 15. After the upgrade the normal boot pointed to "Linux Mint 15 MATE 64-bit, 3.8.0-27-generic" in the grub file. The normal boot fails, it freezes on an error - "Kernel panic - not syncing - fatal exception in interrupt". I searched the internet and found that this is an unresolved kernel bug. I use a Lenovo G550 laptop.
So, I boot through a previous version "Linux Mint 15 MATE 64-bit, kernel version 3.5.0-32-generic" and it works fine.
My question how can I fix it? Can I remove the kernel version 3.8.0-27 and update grub to make 3.5.0-32 as my normal boot? If yes, how can I do this with minimum risk? Can I do this via the synaptic package manager? Thanks.
