Debian Multimedia :: Unable To Log Into The System Using The Old Kernel?

Jun 13, 2010

I am on Squeeze I just updated with a new kernel 32-5-686. I have installed the Nvidia driver with kernel 32-3-686. After the update I can't log with kernel 32-5-686. I tried installing another Nvidia driver but I ran into some trouble. This is the first time I am doing this. how to go by and install an Nvidia driver with the new kernel. Should I remove the old driver first? If I do this I won't be able to log into the system using the old kernel from which I am typing this message.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Build The NVIDIA Kernel Module?

Feb 26, 2011

before i get a lot of annoyed responses, I did check the forum and found a couple older previous threads on this topic, but they don't seem to really explain any real solutions to the problem im having.Here's the story- I was looking around for instructions and found this "howto guide" on installing nvidia display driver [URL]I went through the steps he listed:

downloaded the driver packages, install the dependencies from the shell, and then i pressed CTRL+ALT+F2 to get out of X and into text mode. I stopped my gdm with the command: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stopand then i tried to install the driver using: sudo sh (on my NVIDIA driver- his version was a bit outdated compared to the one I downloaded)But here is where the problem starts, as I go through the installation process and click yes, i reach the "progress bar" then the screen says "unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module". and then it just exits. What is going on here? Am I missing some other package or file?

Debian :: Ext3-fs Unable To Load Using Custom Kernel?

Mar 11, 2010

I compiled a 2 custom kernels so far (many custom kernels just 2 that I have used) however, both of the kernels display an error message about EXT3-Fs and unable to load custom options even though all my partitions are ext4.

I have looked around and the only reason I find for those are that the file systems are corrupt beyond repair,However the problems always ments EXT3-fs is a ext3 file system problem and EXT4-fs is a ext4 file system poblem. Why is mine saying EXT3 and some times EXT2 when im using EXT4?

Debian :: Unable To Install NVIDIA Driver 195.36.24 After Kernel Upgrade?

May 4, 2010

After upgrading kernel package to 2.6.32-5 NVIDIA installation gave me ERROR:Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s), or NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is not supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release.

General :: Your Debian System Suffered A Kernel Failure

Feb 10, 2010

This error message appears in the varlog

The situation is I removed the ADSL card from my desktop as I have no use for it for the moment. I am guessing that the motherboard is still trying to detect the Sangoma ADSL card. What is the best way to resolve this problem, uninstall the drivers for the ADSL card or change the settings in the system configuration files?

The system is not affected by this removal, just get prompted regularly about this error as configured in the kerneloops client.

Debian Installation :: New Kernel - Unable To Mount Root FS On Unknown Block

Jul 30, 2011

I used make-kpkg to generate bzImage from 2.6.39-3-686. After update-grub and booting the new vmlinuz system. I get:

"kernel panic - not syncing:
VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block(0,0)".
grub.cfg shows new entry
'linux/boot/vmlinuz- root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet'
but previous working shows
'linux/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 root=UUID=210a363d-c0ed-4005-b6e8-bbc
aeb7abe54 ro quiet'

Am I missing a step? (or two?). Is it possible to do this from 2.6.32? Currently running Debian-, Squeeze, /release/current/ 20110626-15:45 on a SATA 1T hd.

Debian :: Unplug USB Drive - Kernel Failure - System Will Not Shut Down

I have a flash drive that I regularly use on my laptop. If I unplug the flash drive without first unmounting it, I get a popup notification of a kernel failure (with diagnostics sent to Then, if I attempt to shut down the system via the console, it hangs on "The system is going down for halt/reboot NOW!" and doesn't actually shut down.

I have to disconnect the power cord on the laptop in order to shut it down, and I don't like doing this.

Debian Installation :: Upgrade / System Broken After Moving To 3.16 Kernel

Apr 28, 2015

I got a rather big problem since an attempt to upgrade.My debian version is 8.0.I upgraded when apt proposed the change. I did that in two steps, with apt-get upgrade and then apt-get dist-upgrade, with the installation of a new kernel. I moved from 3.2.0-4-686-pae to 3.16.0-4-686-pae.Since the upgrade, I can't boot my system any longer.During the boot sequence, this message appears with a countdown (it's copied by hand) :

Code: Select all(1 of 4) a start job is running for dev-disk-byX2du

At the end of the countdown, the boot sequence starts again, and ends up on an invite to log in as root in rescue mode. I can't connect (maybe due to some azerty/qwerty issue, I got a French keyboard. I tried to type in "qwerty mode", with no success (the password is not prompted)).I can connect with the 3.2 kernel however, selecting it form the grub interface. I can't log in in rescue mode either, but with this kernel the boot sequence goes on and I can log as a regular user or as root, at the end of the boot sequence. There is no X, but the system seems to work.What could I do to make the system boot properly with the new kernel, or to go back to the 3.2 version ?

General :: Debian Lenny 2.6.34 Kernel Panic - Not Syncing VFS - Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown-block(0,0)

It also spits out something about being unable to access ext2 FS. I googled this symptom and have seen that it is fairly common, but everyone's error seems somewhat unrelated. I used the same kernel configuration as the one that is currently working, to keep things simple.

Debian Multimedia :: Nouveau Not Working With 2.6.33 RT Kernel?

Jan 26, 2011

I'd like to run a real-time kernel with the latest linux-rt patch, for 2.6.33. Incidentally, the .33 kernel was the first to include the Nouveau driver, and seeing that I cannot get the proprietary NVidia driver to compile --the RT patch really messes things up and the patches for nv-linux.h out there all seem incomplete-- I thought it would be a good idea to switch to Nouveau and save me from additional headaches.

I'm running sid, and as you certainly know, the Nouveau driver has been backported to the stock Debian kernel, 2.6.32-5-686. It works very well, all I had to do was change my xorg.conf with this line : Driver "nouveau".

However, when I boot my new 2.6.33-rt kernel, Xorg stops here :

[skipping a lot of stuff that seems to work ok]
(II) LoadModule: "nouveau"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
(II) Module nouveau: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.7.7, module version = 0.0.15


So what is so different about the backport to 2.6.32 ? How come the DRM lib, or whatever it is, doesn't work with 2.6.33 ?

I just thought of something, I'll try compiling my2.6.33 kernel without the -rt patch and I'll let you know.

Debian Multimedia :: Run The 2.6.32-5-686 Kernel On Squeeze And The Bad Nvidia Drivers?

Oct 31, 2010

I run the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel on Squeeze and the bad nvidia drivers. A recent update, and pardon for not noting which, broke 3d games on my box.

From a terminal neverputt yields the following error:

ignatius@lapbox 14:56 [ ~ ]:$ neverputt
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (NV-GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 4 ()
Resource id in failed request: 0x2600013


I can mv xorg.conf to xorg.conf-pre and nexuiz will fire-up. Without 3d of course. I spent an hour or so last week going over my xorg.conf but it just ain't broke!

Someone else saw it, too, and reported it but his post remains alone in the thread as of 10 minutes ago. Anyone else seen this?

I don't play games much at all, but sometimes I just wanna frag muthafuckas and now I can't.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid System Upgrade : Now Unable To Burn DVDs / Enable It?

May 3, 2010

Applied the Lucid Lynx 10.04 over the weekend.
Since then - I am unable to burn DVDs, although I can successfully read DVD's.
Everything worked fine before the upgrade.
Under Lucid Lynx I am able to burn CD's (both data files and .ISO) so it isn't the hardware.

I have tried Brasero and k3b as burners - they issue messages that the burner doesn't like the medium, which is standard DVD-R.
Bear in mind that I could burn similar DVDs *before* the upgrade...

Any help or suggestions on how to fix this please?

Debian Multimedia :: Two Sound Cards Sharing Kernel Module

Dec 5, 2014

I have an nvidia card and a motherboard with an internal sound card.

The nvidia card hogs alsa, and it's really obnoxious because I don't use hdmi for audio (or video, for that matter, crt all day)

I would normally just blacklist the module that the card is using, but I hit a hiccup...

This is the readout for the gfx card from lspci -v

Code: Select all01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fbc (rev a1)
   Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 84bb
   Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 25
   Memory at fe080000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
   Capabilities: [60] Power Management version 3
   Capabilities: [68] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
   Capabilities: [78] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
   Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel

And this is the readout from the motherboards internal audio card

Code: Select all00:14.2 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) (rev 40)
   Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Device a132
   Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 32, IRQ 16
   Memory at fe500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
   Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
   Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel

Since they have the same kernel module, all the internet advice is pretty much moot, because I can't figure out how to effectively shut off one without killing the other as well. Huge PITA.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Died With Last Kernel Update In Squeeze

Oct 21, 2010

It was no surprise that I needed to reinstall the nvidia driver after a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel update a couple days ago, but I was surprised that it didn't work. I've had to drop back to a kernel I compiled a few weeks ago, which is basically the stock 2.6.32-5-686 from that time, with a timer frequency of 1000 and desktop preemption.
Vid card is GeForce PCX 5750

This is the command I used:
env CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.3 sh
(After it didn't work, I ran it with --uninstall and tried installing again. No luck with that.)

Here's the nvidia installer log (sorry about the encoding. I don't know what happened with that): [URL]
rivafb, nvidiafb and rivatv are not loaded.

I don't see it in this one, but on a previous attempt, I saw an error message that said no nvidia graphics card was found. I've been suspicious that the card is slowly dying, based on problems like gray blocks on the screen or (in an older lenny install) persistence of the contents of a window appearing inside a terminal, when I switch desktops from the one where the browser is open to the one where the terminal is open. Scrolling the artifact off-screen and back, or window-shading the terminal and then un-shading it causes it to re-draw correctly.

Debian Multimedia :: Distorted And Defect Screen After Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-5?

Dec 24, 2010

OS Environment : Debian Squeeze, Gnome, Compiz, kernel 2.6.32-5 Hardwares : Pentium4, ATI Radeon 9600 AGP8x

After upgrading the kernel and restarted, I've been having an issue with the screen. After logged in through GDM, the screen starts distorting, creating small colorful object and blurry

Screenshots :

However, this problem does not exist on tty other than used by desktop ( tty1...tty6 is not affected ) And not in GDM too!!! My GDM shows up nicely, I let it there for hours and no distortion, no strange colors whatsoever.

KMS is enabled ( by default ) as I checked :
$ dmesg | grep drm

Debian Configuration :: Unable To Access System>Pereferences>Network Connections?

Mar 15, 2011

I just installed Debian and am getting a problem where I can't open the list of network connections. I can use the network manager applet to connect to wireless networks, but I cannot access the network connections list from there either (right click "edit connections)

I'm not incredibly knowledgeable with Linux, but I tried a few simple things I could think of like reinstalling the packages, or restarting the interfaces. (ifdown/up wlan0)

It's strange, because when I click "network connections," I see it show up for a second on the bottom panel, I get some rotating mouse icon while I wait a few seconds and then if goes away. Is there some kind of logfile that could help me identify the problem?

Using Debian 6 on eeePC1000HEB with Ath9k (i think) wireless card. Net Interface: wlan0
