I installed kernel version 3.8.8 from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/. but after the installation when I booted using the new kernel nothing seemed to work. I have low resolution, network connections are not working. I cant think of a reason for the problem. the older kernel works fine(3.2.x).
I have a hp g630 laptop.
I installed, linux-headers-3.8.8-030808_3.8.8-030808.201304170248_all.deb linux-headers-3.8.8-030808-generic_3.8.8-030808.201304170248_amd64.deb linux-image-3.8.8-030808-generic_3.8.8-030808.201304170248_amd64.deb
If someone knows the reason for this problem please help me to fix this
