I ran your above script & got a failure. I ran it a second time & it worked perfectly. As you mentioned, I did get an error message (which I ignored). Rebooted & am running kernel  3.13.0 as I write this. Double checked everything in grub-customizer & then deleted all the other kernels in Lite Tweaks/Kernel remover. Sorry all of you had the extra work, but thank you very much for putting all those extra kernel's up for us. Doing so has allowed me to run LL 3.0 x64 on my 3.33mhz HP, with 4gb. memory. And when the kernel support expires, I'll move up to the next kernel. Nice & easy to do now - Thanks again!

It seems there's an odd quirk when you run the script "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.13.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.13.0 -y". I wouldn't of noticed except I just ran it on my netbook, after doing it on my HP. I really don't know if it's a bug or not, but it happened exactly the same way, on two different computers. It seems as soon as the script generates an error message it installs kernel 3.13.0 AND 4.4.0-24, if you don't have it. For example my netbook had kernel 4.4.0-21. I wouldn't of noticed except I read it as the error messages happened, and all three kernels showed up in grub-customizer, and on the boot splash. Once I made sure that 3.13.0 was the first kernel boot in grub customizer I rebooted & removed the others in Lite Tweaks/Kernel remover. All's good. I suspect this only happens if you don't have the latest kernel version installed.

Noticed on the Mini and this maybe just due to the hardware of this old system and not kernel 4.7..

When in Firefox I'm unable to scroll side to side (left to right)
Example.. code tags on the forum that contain a lot of info in the code box that require up/down and left/right scrolling.. Cannot click and drag side to side..

I rebooted and double checked still occurred.. If I boot back to kernel 4.4 the issue goes away.

Just putting this out there should folks install 4.7 on older stuff - something to look for before removing previous kernels...

From Jerry: 4.7 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

I got the following output from my terminal when I attempted to install kernel 4.7 to "set-up (1)" in my signature. How to resolve this? Just want to check with you before going any further. As version 6 of the dependencies doesn't appear  to be available (5.9 indicated) should I install a kernel earlier than 4.7. Which one would you recommend?

Code: [Select]

2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M@2.4GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - LL 3.8 32-bit (64-bit too 'laggy')
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.6/Win8.1 dual-boot, LL works fine with kernel 4.15
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL4.6, works well with kernel 4.4; 4.15 doesn't work

Is there a specific reason why you need version 4.7 of the Linux kernel?

Thanks Jerry for replying so promptly.  I have a problem with LL2.8 regularly hanging at boot-up and shutdown in "set-up 1" in sig. It's not a UEFI issue as it occurs if installed on a GTP disk (set to either UEFI or Legacy mode in settings) or on an MBR disk (Legacy only).  I thought updating the kernel might help though to be quite frank am a bit clueless on this...
I should add that I'm using SSDs in my setup.

We provide a warning with every kernel release, this is to avoid situations like this. We advise not to try installing these kernels unless you know what you're doing. At this point I would stop, you also have the Google key error in your terminal output, but that's a separate issue.

Thanks Jerry, I'll follow your advice and leave upgrading to a new kernel version well alone for now.
Should I now run sudo apt-get autoremove to remove any packages of kernel 4.7 & dependencies that may have downloaded or installed? 
The Lite Control Center indicates that Linux 3.13.0-93-generic is still the installed kernel.

You mention that there's a "google key error" in the terminal's output? What is this?  I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine (instead of Google), so I've not agreed to Google's terms and conditions - I don't know if that has anything to do with a google key error?

Many thanks for your continued help & advice.

Cheers
Mike
