what distro and version were you using before the upgrade? The kernel corresponds to 12.04 NOT oneiric. Please can you confirm what distro you are using now. –  fossfreedom Oct 20 '13 at 13:47
    
Please run the command: lsb_release -a to check your Ubuntu release name and then post the release name in a comment or edit the title yourself. –  karel Oct 20 '13 at 14:32
    
@fossfreedom I might be confused about the names. I was running whatever the LTS release was prior to 12.04. If this isn't indicative of the distro name, then I'm afraid I don't remember it. –  Joshua Oct 24 '13 at 14:57
    
@karel, when I get in front of the machine again soon, I'll try it. –  Joshua Oct 24 '13 at 14:57
