Debian :: Upgrade Debian Stable Kernel From Squeeze Version?
May 26, 2010
I've just install debian squeeze version, or the testing one, but I am not really happy with it. Is not listening me all the time. If I install the debian stable I don't have internet connection. Is it possible to update the kernel somehow using the testing version?
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 126.96.36.199 and it was updated to, dunno, 188.8.131.52 or some later one?
I managed to google up this:[url]
And how can I go back to 184.108.40.206 kernel for instance?
Finally ran the upgrade from lenny to squeeze and ran into a few issues. I have to admit this is the first dist-upgrade I've ever had go this badly (kernel issues, xorg issues, mysql transition problems, mythtv... Yikes!).Anyway, the first problem I'm trying to fix is getting dpkg to like the new squeeze kernel. Here's the errors
Code: Errors were encountered while processing: linux-image-2.6.32-5-686
Yesterday, I ran a security update that upgraded my Squeeze kernel from 2.6.32-48squeeze8 to 2.6.32-48squeeze9.
Ever since then, my suspend to ram (STR) function is broken.
The machine will suspend normally, but will not resume. When I try to awaken the machine, I can hear the fan in the tower start up (the subject machine is a desktop computer, please see below for specifics), but the machine seems to be otherwise dead (e.g. the monitor stays blank, pressing the "caps lock" key on my keyboard does not activate said keyboard's "caps lock" led, Ctrl-Alt-F[x] has no effect, etc). My only recourse at that point is a hardware reset (ouch!).
I tried running Code: Select allpm-suspend from a terminal, with no joy. Same result running Code: Select allecho -n "mem" > /sys/power/state from a terminal.
I checked the /var/log/pm-suspend.log file and noticed that each Code: Select all...performing suspend line used to (before said kernel upgrade) be directly followed by a Code: Select all...Awake. line, but, now, all said Code: Select all...performing suspend lines are followed by an Code: Select allInitial commandline parameters... line.
Before this, STR has worked well ever since I first loaded Squeeze on this machine back in 2012.

I am still running the linux-image-2.6.32-5-686 kernel a computer with squeeze. I installed squeeze on it when it was unstable. I would like to bring up to the new stable state.Should I do apt-get install linux-image-2.6.32-5-686or should Iapt-get dist-upgrade
I messed up my install so now I can't boot it. I get errors. I doubt I'll be able to fix it. I messed up the upgrade of the kernel images... I'm not sure whether there's something I could do in the Grub config file... I have one other Linux OS I can use in the meantime (plus Windows OS) so I thought maybe boot that up and check the Debian partition in case there's any files I want to save/keep. If I re-install, is Debian Squeeze LXDE still a good choice? I'm going to install something different in the partition where the other Linux OS is. Right now, it's grub is handling the boot loader. The computer is an old laptop, a Thinkpad T41. The HDD is 160GB.
I've used K/Ubuntu and Opensuse. I'm testing out Debian on a virtual machine at the moment to see if i like it. I downloaded the first disc and no others and didn't do a net update since the download would have taken 24 hours lol. The default install installed gnome with no option to select Kde. I
I imported one table from a csv file format with no problems. The file fields where matching my table fields. For a second table import (I will use a similar example to simplify: So I created a table with the following fields: Contactname addr city zipcode the file to import has the following fields Contactname firstname middlename lastname addr city zipcode.
I want to install Debian Stable 8 Jessie. I've tried the main website, of course, first. But there are a lot of options there to download Debian 8: CD, DVD, Live etc. I downloaded debian-live-8.0.0-amd64-lxde-desktop.iso and I booted live in VirtualBox. It boots fine and the operating system looks in order.
1. The desktop icon for the installer says "Install Debian sid". But from what I know "sid" is unstable version. I do not want unstable, nor testing. I just want normal Stable. Did I got the wrong version? The website is a bit confusing about which version is which.
2. How do I check the md5 of the iso? I know how to do that with other distros, they usually specify it near the download link and I can execute in terminal the command 'md5sum' followed by the specific linux distro iso and then compare the numbers. But I can find no such thing for Debian. I searched the website but could not find any clear info.
3. After I install, what should I do in order to make Iceweasel work with Flash and multimedia codecs? I also need Skype and the proprietary Nvidia drivers.
And if I enable these non free, do I get automatic updates for them like for the rest of standard Debian software? Or, if not, what should I do?
The idea is that I want a system that is as stable and bug free as possible, but I won't use many apps beyond these ones. I don't need the latest and greatest software as long as these get security updates. Should I be ok with this configuration?
Is there a way to get the newest version of firefox on debian stable? Also I downloaded google chrome and installed it but it won't show up in my menu or under installed programs in the software center.
I recently bought a Dell 10v netbook and put Debian lenny on it. I got everything up and running, except that sound doesn't work. Two links I found said that the solution was to download alsa-drivers, alsa-lib, and alsa-util from the ALSA website and ./configure && make && make install:
Another source says this can be fixed on Etch by recompiling alsa from source:
However, I'm running stable lenny, and I'd rather do things the "right" way instead of doing a regular make install. Is there a way to grab the binary packages from testing/unstable and install those without problems? If that's not possible, can I grab the source package from testing/unstable and use that? If that's not possible, can I download the source from ALSA's website and build a package myself?
Ever since i found out that there was something called cinepaint i've tried to install it. On their website it says that the debian version currently isn't stable, and therefore not released. I've tried their own CVS file, and costum files. Nothing so far works.
can't use catalyst driver, virtualbox refuse to run, selinux problems,I want to know if its possible to install only this new kernel 2.6.38 without "contaminating" the rest of my installation with unstable packages?
I installed Jessie with the RC1. URL...A2) The network install images for testing (jessie) can be found at URL...However, unless you want to test the installer for testing the better choice is to use the stable installer to install a minimal stable system and then upgrade to testing by changing your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
i'm using this guide videos - howto: debian linux kernel compilation, part 1 and the author says i need kernel 2.6.26 this version of kernel doesnt longer exist in kernel.org website and the only 2.6.26 i found is a patch here. should i use the patch? or download another version of kernel?
Which is the current stable version of kernel in fedora 10 and how can I installed because right now I have unstable kernel: uname -a Linux blind 220.127.116.11-60.fc10.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat May 9 04:18:14 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I just want to get back to latest stable kernel of fedora 10. I'm not able from the grub to choose an older because there are only kernels for fedora 9. The problem was that previously I used fedora 9 however I upgrade it but it was still with kernel of fedora 9 so I pick it the unstable of fedora 10 and I installed it. Right now I just want to get back to current version of kernel in fedora 10 so I can upgrade it to fedora 11.
I just ran "yum update" to download the latest kernel from the repository, and noticed that it's 2.6.18-164.11.1 while the latest on www.kernel.org is 18.104.22.168.Out of curiosity, why is there such a discripency between the two? Lack of resources to test and build binaries?
since lamaresh is not being updated anymore and the wine packages from the official Debian repository are quite old there isn't really much choice for getting a recent version of wine anymore. Since I don't want to use the carbon project or the Mempis repository, as stated here, (at least yet) I have decided to build the package myself. Unfortunately I would like to have a 32bit version but am running a 64bit version of Debian Squeeze. When I run ./configure I get the following message at the end.
