After following the procedure described in my preceding post:
I'm upgrading from MX-17 to MX-17.1 which means changing to kernel 4.15.
What I would like to do is install the new kernel but keep the old ... just in case.
After selecting the appropriate kernel and headers for my system (amd64) in the MX Package Installer
and then clicking on the install button I believe the following should /will happen:
1) New kernel will be installed and old will not be removed.
2) Grub will be updated to use the new kernel.
Am I correct in this assumption? (Or if not what procedure should I use to accomplish this task?)
Thank you in advance for any advice offered.
The change process appears to have been successful however, the following error messages
are generated at the beginning of the boot process:
0.001000 do_IRQ 1:55 no irqhandler for vector
0.001000 do_IRQ 3:55 no irqhandler for vector
0.001000 do_IRQ 2:55 no irqhandler for vector
Not sure how serious these error messages are.
I thought maybe installing the irqbalance package might help.
(It was suggested by apt-get during the kernel install.)
Bad idea ... I think it's a systemd service.
Should I be worried by this error message? Can I eliminate it?
Thanks in advance for any and all help / suggestions offered.
