OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 From DVD - Load Kernel Operation Hangs At 97% (using Both Normal And Safe Kernel)

Feb 23, 2010

I am an experienced Linux admin and have been using SuSE for many years. My development machine has had every version of SuSE since '02 and although it is a little old, is in good working order. (AMD
2400, 2 gig RAM, 160 Gig IDE disks - SuSE on disk 2) (OpenSuSE 11.1 with the latest kernel works perfectly. This install is on a spare HDD prior to doing a full install on my usual HDD.)

When I try to install SuSE 11.2 from DVD, the load kernel operation hangs at 97% (using both normal and safe kernel), however, I can install from live CD without any problem. I have tried the same DVD on a few "older" machines and had the same problem. I initially thought it was the actual DVD but re-burning has the same problem. I have also tried another DVD writer - same problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Repair Or Add Repositories After Forcing Kernel Safe Mode

Jan 25, 2011

I got the blank screen when trying to install openSUSE 11.3 x64, so I was able to successfully install by choosing: Kernel (F6) > Safe Mode

Now I am trying to build my wireless driver, and I also notice that my touchpad is not scrolling. I had this OS installed in Windows 7 through VirtualBox before doing the clean installation, and I remember the touchpad scrolling.

I am thinking that by choosing Kernel Safe Mode to install openSUSE, that it did not install all the repositories, and it is why I am running into some difficulty.

what I need to do to fix my installation as if I had not installed in Safe Mode.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Load Kernel

Apr 17, 2010

Following a zypper dup and turning my computer off for a few hours; when I rebooted, I got a message saying, "error: you need to load the kernel first press any key to continue . . . " And then it goes back to the grub menu for of the same if I select openSUSE 11.2.SystemrescueCD won't boot it. I've tried to "repair installed system" and "rescue" with my openSUSE 11.1 DVD -- it won't even acknowledge (as it were) the presence of 11.2 or the system on the other hard drive (though it does recognise the partitions).The PCLinuxOS 2009 KDE and GNOME live CDs will redo the MBR of installed systems (at least, as far I know, PCLinuxOS is one of systems). In my experience, the 11.2 live CD won't. I was hoping the 11.1 DVD would. What to do?

OpenSUSE Install :: Loading Kernel Hangs At 94% On Dell Studio XPS PP35L

Jul 6, 2010

I was trying to install openSUSE 11.2 on Dell XPS Studio, model PP35L, but loading kernel hangs at 94%, I tried F5 for Safe Settings, No APIC, No Local ACPI, Check Installation Media, but it still hangs at 94%. Installation works fine on older computer. Is it because openSuse kernel doesn't recognize the i5 Core processor yet? If this is caused by a driver, is there a way to display the kernel messages and what would be the kernel boot options to disable loading of that driver?

Fedora Installation :: Xen-kernel - Unable To Boot In Normal Kernel

Feb 11, 2010

I use a pretty fresh installed RHEL 5.4, which should be very similar to Fedora. After the basic installation I installed xen and xen-kernel via yum with no errors. I can select the xen-kernel at boot time. But after booting the normal kernel shows up.

My /boot/grub/menu.lst looks like:



I can't see anything wrong and I did not change/try anything.

OpenSUSE Install :: Apparmor Module Does Not Load On Kernel-rt?

Aug 6, 2010

I have just reinstalled OS 11.2 but this time the 64bit system variant. I installed the real-time kernel and saw that the apparmor module reported an error and wasn't loaded. I have never looked into apparmor and only knows it has something to do with security, and thus I wonder if it is important to do something with this issue? I plan to use the kernel-rt and have more or less always used a variant of this kernel flavour, often self built. Though I can not recall having seen that error before and I have not used a 64bit system before

OpenSUSE Install :: Time Wrong In XEN Kernel But Right In Desktop Kernel?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a system running openSUSE 11.2 with Desktop and XEN kernel, as well as Windows 7 (not by choice though...). I have noticed a strange time issue, with Windows 7 and the desktop kernel the time is correct (like for example now: 1:32 PM) but in the XEN kernel it is ahead several hours (6:32 PM). If it was an issue between openSUSE and windows then I would think that it is a problem with the system clock but I don't know what would cause a time issue between kernels like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Differences Between Kernel Default And Kernel Desktop?

Jul 21, 2010

differences between Kernel Default and Kernel Desktop? I've found some past threads like this link and this other link, and some other google info, which suggest the only difference would be the io scheduler. Also, I see the default grub choice is "Desktop" and not "Default", so I take this as a suggestion to prefer one over the other.

However, my broadcom 4312 wireless only works on the "default" and not on the "desktop" kernel, so I guess there must be other differences. I just want to evaluate which one is the less long-term risk option to go.

Over the past few days I have been trying to install an older kernel (kernel on ubuntu 9.10 64-bit WUBI installation. I compiled, installed, and updated my grub for the kernel.

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Update My Kernel With Wubi?

Jun 20, 2010

After updating the kernel in Wubi installs, GRUB gets messed up. This has caused me to hold off on the HUGE list of updates in my update manager (I have never updated since I first installed 10.04, and this was just over a week ago). Are these updates important enough to potentially risk something bad happening? What is the risk of updating? Is this an issue with all Wubi installs?

Fedora :: Download Correctly Kernel Source To Enable Driver Make Operation To Proceed?

Dec 20, 2010

I have done a new install of Fedora 14 but the RTL8191 wirless card is not being recognised. Realtek have provided the driver source but the make operation is failing because (I think) Fedora 14 isn't provided with the kernel source to enable it to complete successfully.

Basically (in easy to understand steps): how do I download correctly the Kernel source to enable the driver make operation to proceed?

Red Hat :: Install Ethernet Adapter Driver - Not Finding Kernel-devel Or Kernel-headers

Aug 30, 2010

I'm attempting to install the driver for my atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet adapter (in my Lenovo laptop) on my newly installed RHEL5 system (it's not currently being recognized).

I tried using: 'make install' but hit an error "Makefile:61: *** Linux kernel source not found."

After this, I tried: 'sudo yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers'

To rectify this, but hit this error "No package kernel-devel available" (and the same for the headers). What should I do?

General :: Tried To Install Bcmwl-kernel-source And Now Getting Kernel Panic

Jun 25, 2010

I am running an Hp Pavillion dv6000 with the Broadcom card that never seems to work for Linux. I recently talked with my friend who said he found a way to get it work.following his instructions I opened Synaptic and checked the package bmcwl-kernel-source to be installed.I went through the process of it all and it said it had install successfully. I restarted the computer and when I tried to enter my operating system I got this error "Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block(8,1)"
I have previous versions of Linux on my computer so I can still get in to those if need be but I don't know how to undo what I did or why it isn't working for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting this error and how I can fix it?

Fedora :: 11 And Kernel 2.6.30 Series Causes Hangs?

Feb 18, 2010

I see there are lots of messages about fedora 12 freezing.Actually I have such a problem with fedora 11 since I updated to kernel 2.6.30. My laptop, all of a sudden, freezes. Everything is freezed: mouse is not working, keyboard not responding (hitting caps lock produces nothing), can't switch to terminals, ctrl+alt+canc don't work. I can just push the power button to shutdown the system. BUT the hard disk activity is still going on. I can see and hear the sleeping daemons that cause some usual disk activity while the rest of the system is completely freezed.My system is a HP DV5-1025el with an AMD Turion ZM-80, Ati Radeon HD3450, 4Gb of RAM and 250gb HDD.I got fedora 11 regularly updated, now has kernel, but it is used to happen also with older 2.6.30 kernels, NEVER happened with 2.6.29 kernels. Video driver isn't the cause, since it happens with both proprietary fglrx and OSS radeon drivers.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 Hangs Up On Kernel After Reboot

Sep 4, 2010

My old laptop has a broken screen. I tried using an external flat screen and win-xp would not run this screen. This is how I came to learn about Ubuntu. I loaded Ubuntu 9.4 and the computer worked with the external screen. The only problem was that during the boot process the (kernel text?) the white text on black screen over ran the edges of the external screen. Once the Ubuntu was loaded the window fit the screen perfect. Now my new problem. After a year of perfect use, the battery ran down and the computer shut itself off.

When I put the charger back on and rebooted the laptop, the ubuntu partly opens then hangs up on the kernal (white text on black screen) because of the screen overrun problem I can not read the text. I can boot still boot from the 9.4 CD. Is there anyway I can correct the problem by re-installing 9.4 but not wiping out my person data and files. In other words is there any way to repair the O/s that is defective, without losing my work?
