I'm sorry, but I'm still having issues..

I did as you instructed:
In the last step I get
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 linux-headers-3.4-9-rtai-686-pae:i386 : Depends: gcc-4.6:i386 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Then I tried the following, because I don't really know the syntax.. anyways
linuxcnc@linuxcnc ~ $ sudo apt-get install gcc-4.6:i386

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

You added the repo listed above first?

sudo apt-get update prior to trying that step?

Yes, as instructed.. and gcc 4.6 installed successfully ..

I ran this command after typing the above post..

Running another apt-get update, should be able to do that in 15min or so..

Seems you might have a corruption issue with your wifi dongle. Are you able to connect hardwire for testing?

Can you take a picture of your repos listed in the package manager?

If you have the time update to the latest software via apt

Disable the repo you enabled earlier to prevent any possibilities of an issue. You can do that by unchecking the repo listed in the package manager.

Then run:
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

You have 500+ packages that need updated.

Disregard the binutils above. gcc 4.6 is installed.

Try the kernel install again. It should install this time. (I would still update wether successful or not).

I didn't notice the :386 at the end of the apt command previously.

When I go back and review your original post about this error
linux-headers-3.4-9-rtai-686-pae:i386 : Depends: gcc-4.6:i386 but it is not installable

It seems to me you are trying to install a 64 bit 686 library on a 32 bit 386 system but I am really a Linux noob so could be way off.

I think if you do have a 386 system, you would be better sticking with the standard Wheezy ISO. It implies you have older hardware that is most likely to be supported by the older OS. I found on a 32 bit system that when I moved from Wheezy to Jessie, to install the PREEMPTIVE kernel, the latency rendered the system unusable. I suspect that Mint may put some stress on old hardware so you may end up retreating away from Mint anyway. To solve my problems, I upgraded to 64 bit hardware but then had ongoing issues with Jessie due to lack of driver support. Based on all sorts of advice, I ended up with broken dependencies and realised I had to reinstall the OS. The switch to Mint solved this totally. So don't give up yet, others have also had a rocky journey to get a working system.
