dkms errors are the user's problem in general, not the kernel maintainer, especially with a mutant system like LMDE.

If you have little to no idea what you are doing, I suggest you stick to the distribution defaults until you learn more, particularly when it comes to stuff like lmde, where all kinds of things that are not debian standard, particularly ubuntu dkms packages, can have a rough time with real debian.
