    If any reader is new to Linux, I advise a new person is stay with the original kernel (with automatic security updates, of course) and to also stay with one of the drivers provided with the repository for that particular version of Linux.
    The process of adding kernels and drivers, which are not designed specifically for your system can sometimes lead to problems. It is like a roll of the dice. Sometimes the process works. Most times, it does not.

    If something is not broken, why fixed it?
