kernel-switcher try to 'put' the driver on a older kernel.

Post by albfneto » Fri Nov 29, 2013 21:07

Im my comp with an ATI Board and proprietary ati-drivers (I need for use ATI GPU in the University lab).

When i tried kernel-switcher for install the new 3.12 kernel (prior i used the 3.11, that loosed 3D accel), it will try to install the kernel 3.12.1, but with the driver in the old kernel 3.9

For this reason, i installed both with the classic command:

Code: Select all

sudo equo i linux-sabayon-3.12.1 x11-drivers/ati-drivers-13.9#3.12.0-sabayon ati-userspace
this worked:

Code: Select all

but not using kernel-switcher. I cannot more run kernel-switcher, since it tries downgrade of the drivers, or better, install the driver onto an old kernel.
