Hi all
Having upgraded to 3.2 it's basically as I assumed, no 4.x series kernel will boot on my laptop, the graphics on the Qubes boot screen are completely corrupted and some of the kernels reboot a second or so after the Qubes boot screen appears.

The only kernel that still functions is the leftover 3.8.17-8 from 3.1. Which is working fine for now, are there any downsides to continuing to use this?

I suppose I need to mark it as protected so I can try new kernels as they are released, but ensure it is not removed...

Going by today's security bulletin[1], which releases a new kernel - it seems that there may well be downsides.

I wonder how best to proceed, I take it no one else is in this situation?
