Debian :: Upgraded Kernel - Now Can't Use Certain Apps

Aug 25, 2010

I recently upgraded my Debian kernel to 2.6.35 via backports and reinstalled my graphic driver. But when I try to use certain apps, it just sits there in the taskbar trying to load for a couple minutes, then automatically closes itself. Specifically I've noticed the nvidia x-server menu and open office doing this, while they both worked fine before I upgraded the kernel. some apps will do this, while others will work fine.

General :: Broadcom Wireless / Debian Installation - Get An Upgraded Kernel?

Aug 18, 2010

I have kernel 2.6.26 and I think I need 2.6.27, but update manager says my system is up-to-date. How do I get an upgraded kernel? I have a wireless card but I cannot find anything in the UI to enable it, or connect to my home net. Would Debian come with a connection manager with an oddball name?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded To 10.04 But Cannot Use Kernel 2.6.32-22.32+

Jun 20, 2010

I had upgraded to 10.04 but can not use kernel 2.6.32-22.32+, I had to go back to kernel 2.6.31-21. because of the default video driver had change from the one kernel to the other, and I do not know how the correct it. In 2.6.32-22 the font would change and to a smaller size and I can barely view anything because it looks like some two year old puke a box of crayons all over the screen.

Second issue is it does not matter what power-saving mode I am in, in 5 minutes time it with go into suspension. Or right after coming out of hibernate, it will go into suspension indefinitely and no coming out of it and must to a hard boot.

Ubuntu :: Upgraded Kernel - Can't Log In To XFCE

Oct 17, 2010

I just upgraded the kernel from 2.6.32-24 to 2.6.32-25. When it was finished it logged me out of XFCE without warning (is that normal)? Now if I try to log in to XFCE the screen goes blank and I just get returned to the login screen. I can log in to GNOME however. I get the same problem if I boot into -24 or -25.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Kernel Upgraded - But Won't Install Headers ?

Aug 23, 2010

I'd like to upgrade a live ISO file before burning a new CD.

So, following the instructions in "How to Customise the Ubuntu Desktop CD", I chrooted to the squashfs and ran "apt-get update/upgrade/dist-upgrade", expecting apt-get to upgrade the chroot kernel... only to find out that apparently, even when being chrooted, this command upgrades the actual kernel. I guess it makes sense, but I was under the - wrong - impression that chroot would build a filesystem totally isolated from the underneath host.

So I rebooted to use this new kernel:

Next, since the Nouveau video driver requires the kernel header files, I ran the following:

Code:

I don't understand why apt-get upgrades the kernel but won't install its header files.

Ubuntu :: Upgraded System To 10.10 - Does Not Boot Into New Kernel

Jan 8, 2011

I upgraded a PC from 10.04.1 to 10.10 and it will not boot into the new kernel. Because the system started as Ubuntu 7.10, it is using Grub 1.

It gets to the point where it displays "Starting up..." then displays a flashing cursor at the upper left of the screen, it does nothing further.

Yet it will boot into the previous kernel from the 10.04.1 installation, but X will crash if I login using the XFCE desktop, yet it will log into LXDE without a problem.

Is this a known issue (not booting up with new kernel)?

The CPU is an AMD Athlon 32-bit which does have CMOV (per cat /proc/cpuinfo). I have also manually run various apt-get commands to upgrade/update everything, no change resulted.

Slackware :: Accidentally Upgraded Kernel-headers - Should Downgrade ?

May 22, 2011

When I first did my install of Slackware 13.37, I installed the 2.6.38.4 kernel from /testing.

I did a "upgradepkg testing/kernel*.t?z"

Well just now I realized that there was a kernel-headers package in /testing, and I've heard that you should only use the kernel headers that glibc was compiled with.

So did I make a mistake installing the kernel-headers from /testing?

And if I revert back to the stock kernel-headers package, will I have to recompile all the programs I've compiled with the 2.6.38.4 headers?

CentOS 5 :: Single Disk Kickstart: How To Use Upgraded Kernel

Aug 19, 2010

For portability reasons; I am building a standalone kickstart ISO; based of Cent5.2. I am to the point where I can load my ks file (linux ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg), it reads it fine; and performs the install as I want.

Where I am having a problem; is a good way to have the install use upgraded RPM's, not the base; specifically a kernel with a few needed tweaks in it; which is packaged in an rpm.

I attempted to place my kernel rpm's into the CentOS directory and rerun creatrepo; but I simply managed to corrupt the base repo on the install media.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded To Mainline Kernel Ppa 2.6.33 - Machine Freeze

i am having quite a problem after upgrading my karmic to an 2.6.33 kernel and trying to do an nfs transfer.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded Kernel - Lost Previous Kernels?

Aug 5, 2011

I upgraded to 2.6.35-30.56 last night and now my system's a little flaky. Everything seems to be running ever-so-slightly slower and fullscreen flash is now choppy. The weird thing is the Grub menu upon bootup only shows the latest kernel, but not the previous kernels. Doing an "ls" of the /boot folder only shows this newest kernel. I'd like to revert back to the previous kernel but don't know how.

Debian Installation :: Upgraded Squeeze To Testing?

Feb 16, 2011

I'm wondering about this because I'm considering doing this myself. Specifically, I'd like to know if your wireless configurations survived the upgrade or not. Meaning, where they removed, altered, or hopefully, where they preserved as they where?

Also if anyone knows of a good link regarding this particular upgrade, by all means please share. I have only been able to dig up a bit of dirt on the topic but they were concerning older Debian releases. Maybe theres not much difference?

Debian :: Upgraded The Version Of Xorg To An Unsupported One?

May 29, 2010

My setup is: Debian Lenny 5.0.4 I have an ATI Radeon X1200 series (embedded in the motherboard).What version of the ATI official drivers do i need? I recall that i was having troubles with the latest drivers, because ati has dropped support for these products. Another question is: Does Lenny 5.0.4 will work with the previously mentioned graphics card, or they had upgraded the version of Xorg to an unsupported one?

Debian Configuration :: Accidentally Upgraded Squeeze To Sid?

Jun 16, 2010

I just noticed that I had a sid line on my sources.list, at the end of all squeeze lines, and I've been updating more or less regularly. Does the ordering imply some sort of "preference", so that the first lines are preferred over the subsequent ones, or is it all about the latest version?After removing that line, and taking a look at my installed packages with synaptic, all the "latest versions" of the packages seem to be the ones that are already installed, and I click on properties, and there are no older versions available, only "##.##-### (testing)". Emphasis on "testing", rather than "sid" or "unstable". Of course I didn't check all of them, but about a dozen, and none deviated from that pattern. However, I went to double check on the web pages about the packages, and it seems that many of the squeeze's packages are at the same version of sid. I couldn't yet find one that is not.perhaps the sole fact that the sid line was on sources.list is enough to know that something happened -- as I don't recall having ever set up those configuration files about preferred sources/pins or however it's called), and suggestions on how to proceed? My hunch would be to just downgrade things gradually as they eventually fail (as I did with geeqie, which is why I suspect that there is some mess), but leave everything alone. Not try to fix what is not quite broken. And if it fails too often, go full-blown sid.

Debian Hardware :: Partly Upgraded To Squeeze?

Feb 25, 2011

I attempted to move my system from a fully functioning Lenny to Squeeze, and the upgrade is only partly done. I was using my Wlan connection, but it went away during the process, and won't wake up. The box is nowhere near a wired LAN.

I now have the latest kernel (uname -r ==> 2.6.32-5-686) The old Gnome GUI still functions. On re-boot, the old grub still does its thing successfully. The question is, since I have lost the wireless, can I install the firmware from a USB thumb-drive somehow? lspci ==> RaLink RT2561/RT61

So it looks like I need the package "firmware-ralink" to make the Wlan active once more. I have internet access from several other PC's using "another" OS, so I could download the the firmware and place it on a thumb-drive, but I don't know how to proceed from there. I may need additional packages as well, so please comment.

Debian :: Upgraded Lenny To Squeeze: Where Did Usbkbd?

Apr 1, 2011

SOLVED:The driver hid-cypress/USB_DEVICE_ID_CYPRESS_BARCODE_3 is included in the latest kernel.org, but not the default x86 Debian Squeeze 2.6.32-5. Downloading, building and booting a custom kernel solved the problem. I upgraded from Debian Lenny (2.6.26-2) to Debian Squeeze (2.6.32-5) and my barcode scanner stopped working. Based on the details below, I believe the problem is that usbkbd.ko moved.

Under Debian Lenny, I had a similar problem until I set the system to load "usbkbd.ko" at boot. This caused the scanner to show up in /dev/input/by-id/usb-Guest_Barcode_Reader-event-kbd which enabled my application to find and use the scanner with no problems.

Under Debian Squeeze, I'm seeing scanner via lsusb, but not in /dev/input/by-id. Below are the dmesg logs. It appears that Lenny "input" is finding the scanner, but Squeeze is not (presumably because I don't have the right kernel module loaded).

Lenny dmesg:
usb 2-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
usb 2-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
input: Guest Barcode Reader as /class/input/input7
usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=04b4, idProduct=bca1

Debian :: Upgrade Debian 3 Kernel 2.4.18 To Kernel 2.6 Or Bigmem-kernel?

Nov 11, 2010

We have a Dell 1850 with Debian with 2.4.18 kernel running some critical applications, now the issue is we need to upgrade the memory to 8 GB but the memory is detected by the bios itself, Operating system is not able to detect it, it is showing 3096MB of memory,

After a lot of googling and the artical in linux.com/archive/articles/119287 :: Got more than a gig of RAM and 32-bit Linux? Here's how to use it i came to know the solution i.e

1)I need to install the Bigmem-kernel to detect the ram more than 4Gb,

2) or change some kernel parameters in configuration file and rebuild the kernel

Is there any another solution for this to update operating system to detect the more RAM

Debian Installation :: Upgraded To Jessie 8.2 Now Boot Hangs

Dec 4, 2015

I had Debian 7.9 up and running like a charm until yesterday. Today I did the upgrade to 8.2, now boot hangs. I see 3 boot entries for the new kernel now -

Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (sysvinit)
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (recovery mode)

The latter 2 entries have no problem booting up. So do the previous kernel(3.2.0.4) entries. Only the first one hangs, for which I see these 6 lines on the console:

[ 0.214704] pnp 00:04: can't evaluate _CRS: 12298
Loading, please wait...
fsck from util-linux 2.25.2

[ 0.000985] kvm: disabled by bios

How can I make it boot up like others?

Debian Multimedia :: Constant Crackling Sound After Upgraded To 8.1

Aug 31, 2015

I have upgraded (twice) to 8.1 and I get constant crackling sound - interestingly only from my left speaker. It starts already after the GRUB boot, and when logged in it just cracks all the time.

- in Wheezy there is no this kind of problem
- I have installed Jessie (crackling), fresh install back to Wheezy (no problem), fresh install again Jessie (problem), back to Wheezy (no problem), and now Jessie (again problem).
- the volume slide is jumping like crazy together with crackling. There is no chance to manually change it.

I have managed (by some unknown chance) to set profile to off, and now it disappeared. However, it comes back ON when rebooted.

Debian Multimedia :: Upgraded To Squeeze And Now Gnome Won't Work

May 24, 2010

Previously (on Lenny) I would boot my computer and it would happily boot through to the Gnome login page (the pretty graphical one). Now (on Squeeze) I get the plain old text login prompt. So I login normally and try running "startx". It comes up with a black screen and a mouse pointer. Nothing else. Ctrl+shift commands seem to work so I am able to get to another terminal. When I switch back to the first terminal there are just come Gnome startup messages.

I really need to have this working in order to do some "work". give me a sure fire way of either fixing this, even if it means instructions on re-installing Gnome? Normally I could copy log files from my Linux machine to my email computer but with no desktop I find this too difficult and really don't have the time to spend working out how to do it. (I have "work" to do as well). So, just briefly I will summarise the Xorg.0.log file:

Debian :: Upgraded From Wheezy To Jessie / Now Only GNOME Classic Works

Apr 27, 2015

I did an in-place upgrade to Jessie today and I can only get the GNOME Classic desktop, which I have to select when I log in. I had started to get used to the default desktop in Wheezy, so I'd like it back if possible. When I select gnome system default, I get my desktop, but no menus or anything I can click on at all. All I can do is ctrl-alt-delete and reboot or shutdown. I run it on a Lenovo Ideapad U410.
