[Bug 1485992] Re: After I exit a game on steam, I did a system update and the crash apperd.


The only work around that I have found is to go back to your old kernel
that was installed.

In this case, it's usually this one:


The work around (in terminal /konsole):

The offending packages are the following that cause that error:


The old packages for the older kernel when it did work:


What you do is this (if it says they're already installed don't worry,
this is also for people those purged these packages from before):

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y linux-headers-3.19.0-15 linux-headers-3.19.0-15-generic linux-image-3.19.0-15-generic linux-image-extra-3.19.0-15-generic
sudo apt-get purge -y linux-headers-3.19.0-26 linux-headers-3.19.0-26-generic linux-image-3.19.0-26-generic linux-image-extra-3.19.0-26-generic
sudo update-grub2

When this is done, you might get an error about the grub hidden timeout
being set to a non zero number is no longer supported, that's not a real
problem, I can tell you how to fix it if it really bothers you, though.

Now, that all of this is done:

Close all your open applications and type in:

sudo reboot

When Ubuntu and forks reboots, login or let the auto login script bring
you to the desktop.

Assuming you have the AMD / ATI Catalyst installed: (in terminal /

sudo amdcccle

When it opens, check all your setting and if you need to make changes do
so at this time, since you're running as a super user, you can also
change the resolution should you feel you need to do this at this time.
When done, close that application and start Steam.

 From here, you should be fine. Just make sure that when you go to
update your system, to not allow that bad kernel to be installed onto
your system again. I recommend using Synaptic package manager to deal
with unruly packages. You can pick and choose what packages are updated
and which are left well enough alone.

I hope this helps!
