  1. Dear Mandar,
    first thanks a lot for your useful instructions. I'm just using the new kernel and all seems working smoothly. I only found a msg during the installation process: "Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 3.17.3.....", but I can't see what is the related module. Can you give me some tip? P.S. It is not the first time I see this error, but I never had any problem.
