Happy New Year, hopefully.
Earlier today I tried to update my kernel from 3.13xx to 4.2 in the hope of better performance on my computer. But after a restart I had no network. When i did ifconfig ethx/wlanx up it gave an error message. I had to remove the new kernel and reboot the old kernel to get the network back.
How do I keep the network drivers between kernels? Does not the dependencies hop along between kernels?
Perhaps a better question would be - what are the appropriate steps to install a kernel and keeping the drivers working between kernel-generations? If there is a manual I would read it, but I have not found Potters book of knowledge where all the magick Linux are collected in one large volume. In this case I would like to read the chapter x.x.x.IV Kernel Update do and do not.
