OpenSUSE :: Can't Recompile Virtualbox Kernel Modules After Upgrade To 11.4?

Mar 20, 2011

This has got me stumped. I expected to do /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup after the upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 but the command fails. The log is (it seems to repeat so I only quote the final bits to make it fit into the wordcount limit):

make KBUILD_VERBOSE=1 -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/tmp/vbox.0 SRCROOT=/tmp/vbox.0 modules

Ubuntu Installation :: Version Upgrade - Reinstall - Preserve /home Method?

Sep 18, 2010

I will be version-upgrading a friends (Ubuntu only) laptop very soon. It is 9.04 now and the new version will be (ideally) 10.04.1 The machine has a large unused area on the hard drive and who has known this situation was to use the uncommitted area to do a complete new install of 10.04.1, leaving the 9.04 unchanged (useful insurance). Then, copy, paste (?) the /home directory from the 9.04 into the newly completed installed 10.04.1 overwriting the installed directory.

Opinions seem to support the notion that such a paste into 10.04.1 is likely to be successful and trouble free as long as the 10.04.1 installing username is the same as the 9.04 username with same privilege level. I would be grateful for comments here, particularly with any details, gotchas, you can see.

Ubuntu :: 10.04: Latest Upgrade Fails To Boot

Jul 30, 2010

It used to be, that with grub (not grub2?), I could restore the boot partition by the following:

# grub
grub> find /grub/grub.cfg
grub> root (hd0,10)
grub> setup (hd0,10)

Now this no longer works with whatever grub 10.04 uses, I suspect it is grub2? How do I restore grub to the specific partition I need and NOT to MBR? I have a different boot loader and this boot loader is directed to Ubuntu's boot partition.... Since I cannot boot directly to Ubuntu's boot partition I am perhaps left with only LiveCD to do the recovery, right?

Red Hat / Fedora :: RPM Kernel Upgrade To Latest Version (SL6)

May 13, 2011

I am relatively new to the Linux System (8 months). I am having issues after upgrading the Scientific Linux 6 kernel from its current 2.6.x version to the latest version that SL6 has available. The issue is that once I install the upgrade and reboot, the internet becomes extremely laggy when scrolling on web pages, so much so that you get a ripple like effect as your scrolling. Which doesn't occur in the current kernel i am using.

Current Kernel is: 2.6.32-71.18.2.el6
New Kernel RPM update is: 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6

I wish I could figure out the problem but I am having trouble identifying what exactly the current kernel has that the new one doesn't that would cause the internet lag. I have read other topics with similar kernel update problems, but none have expressed an internet problem & only an internet problem from a kernel update.

Ubuntu Installation :: Latest Upgrade Broke Booting?

Mar 17, 2010

I just did the latest upgrade in 9.10 via the update manager and it required a reboot. When I rebooted Ubuntu failed to load. In recovery mode it fails saying that it can't find my root device and has some suggestions about what might be wrong. I looked at the file it listed in /proc/something and the devices available by uuid in /dev/ and what's listed in /proc/something isn't in dev. I haven't made any changes yet for fear of causing worse damage. The shell it bumps to is ASH and it doesn't look to have much editor support to make changes to the proc file(ECHO > ?). Is there a safer way to get my system back online?

I'm running 9.10 AMD64 on a Dell Inspiron laptop with a dual boot to Windows 7 (For browser testing web apps/sites)

CentOS 5 :: SAMBA Upgrade With Yum Not Finding The Latest Version?

Jun 14, 2010

I have CentOS 5.5 installed on my Dell D600. This release includes SAMBA 3.0.
Question: Is there a way to use yum to upgrade / install the latest version of SAMBA (3.5.3)?

A "yum search samba" shows there is only the "samba3x" release available - which is SAMBA 3.0

I've downloaded the SAMBA3-3.5.3-43.el5.i386.rpm package for Cent OS 5 from the site, but when I try to install it, it fails due to package dependencies.

Short of downloading the source and compiling it myself, is there a better method to get the latest version of SAMBA installed on my system?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Power On After Latest Upgrade Installed / Resolve This?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm running 10.10LTS at present, I upgraded via the Upgrade Manager last night, Firefox 3.4 and D-bus stuff if I remember correctly. The system then gave the "restart now or later" buttons and I hit the "now" one. My system, an AMD 3800+ dual core job in an MSI mobo then shut down and, er... died. hitting the momentory action power switch gives an ocasional short noise but I have no power/fans or anything. It's a 480 Watt PSU with green leds and stuff I don't really need but the price was good, so I'm not convinced that it's dead... yet.

Is it possible for an upgrade to stuff the power-up circuitry? Maybe power management?

My next step is to swap the PSU to eliminate this as the "faulty" item. It leaves the Mobo, screwed CMOS and possibly the switch cabling/connector but it's all a bit suspicious. I'm basicially a hardware guy so that's the path I'm following. Unless the upgrade's written to somewhere it shouldn't?

I haven't had time to investigate further as I was dragged away shouting and screaming to a prior engagement by "she who must be obeyed".
