Debian Configuration :: Downgrade The Kernel Patch Version?

Aug 31, 2011

When a real kernel version is upgraded, like say 2.6.32 to 2.6.38, the old kernel is left intact and is ready to be used in case of a problem with a new one, but when only a debian patch version is updated, like 2.6.32-30 to 2.6.32-35, the old kernel is replaced with a new one. More then this, aptitude shows that older version is not in repository either, so how do you supposed to revert back? Well, i did found -30 in apt cache when i got hit by a nasty regression in -35 yesterday, but what if i had cleaned apt cache?

Feb 17, 2011

downgrade my squeeze installation to kernel 2.6.32-29 (I think I have -30 now).

- what is the proper way to downgrade to that version of the kernel (I got my current kernel version when I installed squeeze few days ago and the official repo does not seem to have the -29 version anymore)?

- how to prevent that future automatic updates "upgrade" me again to the non-working version?

Debian Configuration :: Getting Kernel Version In Stable?

Feb 10, 2010

kernel with which most version number may be compiled in Debian 5 stable without updating to testing? 2.6.32.8 can't compile, if not turn off virtualization, since Documentation/least/least.c

contains
#include <sys/eventfd.h>

which is present in libc6-dev from testing, but is absent in stable.To drivers compiling kernel used own linux/eventfd.h.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Version In Squeeze ?

Mar 15, 2011

Laptop Amilo L1300, installed Debian Squeeze from netinstall from scratch a month ago. Installed Xfce as a DE afterwards.

This laptop usually has problem with: ACPI, Wifi and tons of other stuff usually Kernel related and is really picky about kernel version!

Now - with Lenny it worked without problems, but it had gnome and ext3 so I took a gamble and did a fresh install of Squeeze with Xfce with Ext4 filesystem and overall performance of the computer was faster and more responsive.

For wireless I have to use[url]

It all worked 100% until a week ago (roughly).

I do not use synaptic nor update manager, so I updated the system via terminal (as root of course) "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade". And I noticed it will upgrade kernel. I went through the upgrade process, as I thought it's all a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel version and it will not brake anything since it IS a stable branch of Debian and it will not install new kernel. Of course it did not install 2.6.34 or anything like that...

After the update I began experiencing problems, first with mouse pointer, it became invisible and goes back visible and resume from suspend, also wireless randomly disconnects and sometimes won't reconnect to wifi network, as I found out it's all kernel related problems (googled it up). I do not know how to go back to previous kernel version, since in Grub2 menu it only points to one and only kernel version, as I reckon it's the same version but with bugfixes? Or should I say buy UNfixes. I tried using a liquorix kernel 2.6.32 but as he works, has problem with ACPI as I presume since it freezes the system on random occasions.

Please, what EXACT version of kernel was in Squeeze like 3 weeks ago? And how can install that particular version of kernel, since it was the only one that worked besides the one from Lenny.

"uname -r" says: 2.6.32-5-686

That's what it always said.

Is it possible I had, dunno 2.6.32.28 and it was updated to, dunno, 2.6.32.29 or some later one?

I managed to google up this:[url]

And how can I go back to 2.6.32.28 kernel for instance?

Should I use some of the snapshots from [url]?

General :: Apply Kernel Patch - Couldn't Find File To Patch

Apr 8, 2011

I just want to upgrade my Slackware 13.1 kernel (2.6.33.4) to the latest stable kernel from kernel.org (2.6.38.2). I have never done anything like this and I am a Linux newbie, so I would appreciate a "Kernel Patching for Dummies" version if possible. I did do a search on this forum and most of what I read was over my head. I found an FAQ on kernelnewbies.org on "How To Apply A Patch" but when I attempted what they suggested, it said it couldn't find the file to patch at line 5 and asked me which file to patch. So I CTRL-Z'd out of there and came here. Here's what I tried:

Debian :: Tried To Patch Kernel And Failed?

Jun 1, 2011

Ok here's the problem : I tried to patch the kernel of my Debian server with GrSecurity but when I rebooted I couldn't SSH the server anymore, but my host has a rescue system that lets me SSH the server so I can fix things.

So maybe the kernel patching failed, maybe it's a only a problem with Grub.

I don't really know what to do to fix this. If I messed up the kernel what can I do ? Can I just fix the problem by modifying the grub entries to only boot on the old kernel (I don't even know if it's here anymore, I'm quite the n00b) ?

Well for now I'll just try to mount the partitions (won't let me do "mount: can't find /dev/sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab" )

edit : to be clearer my main question is : how can I determine if it's because the kernel is messed up or because the system wouldn't boot properly ?

edit 2 : is there a way to create a log of what happens at boot so I can have an idea about what's wrong ?

Sometimes a kernel image seems to have the same version as the backported kernel image, for example:

What are the differences between the two?

Ubuntu Installation :: Downgrade To Firefox Older Version In 10.04?

May 8, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04, and am quite happy with it so far, but it installed Firefox 3.6, which is a problem for me because I need to be able to use the Jssh plugin, which isn't available for 3.6 yet. All I need to do is downgrade Firefox to 3.5, but I seem to be having some issues, it seems that there is only the one version available to me in Synaptic. Is there another repository that I need to add to have access to an older version?

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze D-u - Kernel Configuration Skipped

Jul 6, 2010

I have a set of vm's with stable, testing, and sid to keep track of how things are going. When I did an apt-get dist-upgrade with squeeze last week, things seemed to OK (350 package updates) until the end. It didn't seem to like and / or was confused by a kernel dependency.

I am not too concerned yet. Because these are in vm's, I do a snapshot before any significant change. I can futz around with impunity because I have that backup.

I re-booted, and tried the apt-get dist-upgrade again with same results. I think I also tried apt-get -f install.

So I reverted to the snapshot, and will simply try again in the future. I recall that with lenny as testing, the font-desktop was really screwed up for about a period of 6 weeks.

However, just in case someone else runs into this:

1) a re-boot worked, but the failure of apt-get made me nervous enough to revert.

2) waiting for corrections has seemed to work in the past (with a single exception with a 4-disk SCSI software RAID10 update that failed to re-boot lenny successfully after what seemed to be a minor update -- that was on a real system, not a vm. I haven't gotten back to look at that.)

Server :: CentOS 5.6 Patch Version Control?

Jul 21, 2011

I have this project at work. We are a MS Windows shop, and I am "supposed" to be the linux expert, which means, linux support, it's me. I have worked with linux maintaining PCs at home with different versions of linux since 1995, jumping from Slackware to Ubuntu.

Now, I have two CentOS 5.6 boxes, and I need to control the patching process. the boxes are hosting an application which we don't manage. So. one box in production, one box in development. The idea is that the box in development wil use yum in a standard way and download whatever patches are needed, and the application is tested. When the testing is done (this can take minutes, hours, or days) then the production box gets patched.
The problem is that I need to garantee that exactly the same patches are applied in development and in production.

the development box downloads the patches from the internet, but the production box gets it's patches from the development box, not the internet. I have played around with making local repos on the development box and samba, or rsync the /var/yum/cache, and to change the yum.repo.d CentOS-base.repo to force the prod to go to the dev box, without success.
