OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Upgrade On 11.1 - Cannot Find Module After Reboot

Nov 10, 2010

I've upgraded kernel to on openSUSE 11.1. Before I tried to upgrade to where I encountered the same issue. After reboot it can not find the modules for which puzzled me to no end. Now I have found that the /boot which is on separate partition of ext2 type is not mounted. The mount command does not recognize ext2 and xfs anymore.

Clearly the initrd does not have the right modules. Since this is standard zypper up process I would expect this to work without issues since it has worked until the kernel without issues. Has something changed with the last 2 kernel versions that requires some extra actions from me and if so what do I have to do.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Cannot Find Map File. No Module Symbols Loaded - Kernel Modules Not Enabled

Aug 3, 2010

Used to work perfectly. I attempted to install VPN client, result is can't connect to anything. Networks are seen by network manager, nothing happens when click connect. Results below:

Wireless LAN present in Hardware information. Atheros AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (wlan0)

Advice is to use output of dmesg command to find problem, but as above I don't get any results for this in terminal.

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 :: 11.2 (64bit) - Kernel Module Will Not Start In Vbox

Jan 23, 2010

I Just loaded 11.2 64 bit, initially the kernel was "default", however, after I installed my Nvidia drivers it changed to desktop, I'm not sure I understand? In GRUB my screen lists it as desktop. Is "default" somewhere? Was it replaced? Things seem to be working alright in most cases although I'm having inordinate problems with "virtual Box" and Vmware server. In Vbox the kernel module won't start.

Mar 16, 2011

I would like to remotely reboot a computer (via ssh) to a non default kernel. If I just type reboot, it reboots to the default kernel. Man reboot(8) does not give any hint so I am not sure that is possible at all. I have found nothing googling around either.

CentOS 5 :: How To Prevent Kernel Upgrade On Reboot After Yum Update Kernel*

May 29, 2010

The server runs# uname -r2.6.18-128.4.1.el5However, today I executed yum update kernel*due to security advisory. I was just about to reboot the system when I realized that it runs VMWare Server Instance that will most likely fail to restart after kernel upgrade (I had a hard time fixing it after previous kernel update). Now I want to keep 2.6.18-128.4.1.el5 after reboot.I see that new kernel is scheduled for booting:

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE 4.5 Update On 11.3 - Kernel Panic On Reboot

After reading this article openSUSE News - Forum Users Benefit from openSUSE KDE Repository I added that KDE repo to yast and switched all packages.

And stops at this string: "[<c0203826>] kernel_thread_helper+0x6/0x10" and capslock light is blinking.

Debian Configuration :: Module Assistant Can't Find Kernel Headers / Work Around This?

Jul 25, 2010

I'm trying to use module-assistant to add the vboxdrv using instructions also found here in the debian forum. However, m-a can't find the linux-headers because it looks for the package linux-headers-2.6.32-5-trunk-686. I attempted to specify were the headers were by using:
m-a prepare --kernel-dir /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686/
but also doesn't work. Instead, I get the error:
Bad kernel version specification at /usr/bin/m-a line 566.
Anyone knows how to work around this?
By the way, the reason I am doing this is because when I installed virtualbox (following the instructions in debian wiki) there's no vboxdrv. When I try to modprobe it, I get:
FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found.

Debian Hardware :: With Kernel Upgrade To 3.16.0 Lost WiFi Module

Jun 7, 2015

I got notebook HP Pavilion 15-p171nr. Have installed Debian Wheezy. There was some problems, for example with screen brightness (backlight) and it was solved here: [URL] .....

The problem was solved with upgrading kernel 3.2.0 to 3.16.0 from backports... but... with these steps i lost my wi-fi wl module...

It was downloaded somewhere, compiled and worked well until kernel upgrade... For the current moment i can not compile it.

My hardware:
Code: Select all08:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

Within last steps official wiki recommends (my device is in the supported list): [URL] .... but I got problems with compilation... here they are:

I have installed correct linux-headers:

Code: Select allroot@hpnote:/home/yaroslav/Загрузки# apt-get install -t wheezy-backports linux-headers-amd64
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
linux-headers-amd64 is already the newest version.

[Code] ....

Then I am trying to reconfigure already installed broadcom-sta-dkms package and here is what I got:

Code: Select allroot@hpnote:/home/yaroslav/Загрузки# dpkg-reconfigure broadcom-sta-dkms
Deleting module version:
completely from the DKMS tree.

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade 11.2 Kernel To 2.6.34-8 - 11.3 MS 7 ?

Jun 15, 2010

I have tried to 'rpm -ivh' the 2.6.34-8 image to the 2.6.31-5 on my Suse 11.2. Without any luck, rpm goes fine, however at the next bootup, then udev is about to be initialized, the machine goes down (don't see any message).

But if I install the MileStone 7 of 11.3 on the same machine, it works just fine.

Are there any scripts/howtos I have to follow if I upgrade from 2.6.31 to 2.6.34?

OpenSUSE Install :: Hanging - How To Upgrade The Kernel

Mar 6, 2011

I am running 11.3 for about 4 months and it suddenly started to hang intermittently, sometimes many times a day. Once KDE restarted and other times the screen went black. Most of the time it was just hanging and I needed to force a shutdown. The only clue I got is KDE displayed a notification saying "Disabling IRQ #24" not long after it started to go nuts.

After searching around, I figured the problem was with my external video card so I pulled it out 2 days ago and so far it didn't freeze again. After searching around some more, I found many users fixed very similar issues by upgrading to kernel 2.6.35 and I am ready to go for this solution. But now, I couldn't find out how to upgrade the kernel. People said it can be done in Yast but I only see version 2.6.34. What is the easiest way to upgrade?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Kernel Upgrade Causes Bootchart To Fill Root?

Nov 22, 2009

I did a kernel upgrade in openSUSE 11.2 which caused bootchart to fill the root partition or so it would appear as when I rebooted I started getting messages on the console saying bootchartd could not write because the device was full.

Let me begin by describing my system:

Partition table:
fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00083a53

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 2612 20980858+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 2613 15666 104856255 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3 * 15667 15927 2096482+ 83 Linux

As you can see from the partition table I have 2GB allocated for the / partition and according to the df command there is 0 free space but du -hx shows / is only using 405MB. What's happened to the almost 1.6GB that should be available?

OpenSUSE Install :: Manually Change Information On Every Kernel Upgrade

Jan 1, 2011

To run my other linux distros on another drive I have been manually entering the kernel and initrid info for each distro on the opensuse yast boot loader. For windows 7 it just runs the mbr on the drive windows 7 is on. However I can not get it to do that on the other linux drive. The problem for me is that on every kernel upgrade I have to manually change the info. I would rather have grub on the sdd linux disk take care of it on the upgrades. The drive that holds the other linux versions is sdd. Opensuse is on sdc.

OpenSUSE Install :: Starting Xserver After Upgrade / Error Message That Current Kernel Can Not Be Loaded?

May 21, 2011

I was about to do upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4.I was following the guide I found in opensuse's website. I was to the point where I had to disable all 11.3 repositories and add the 11.4 at that point I forgot to change my nvidia repository ( I have a g210m graphic card).

thus after the upgrade the X could not start at all. I think this was because Yast could not find the nvidia driver.

Using text mode YaSt2 I added the nvidia driver but after restart I can not see and X running. I receive an error message that the current kernel can not be loaded!!!

I also checked in command line if there is something like Sax2.. but I couldnot find anything.

OpenSUSE :: Kernel Module Development Barked

Feb 27, 2011

It is bad enough that the kernel gods have basically required that the whole kernel source tree be installed and configured to compile even a simple module but they have made it so a module compiled on one kernel will not work on any other.

To make the situation worse much of the configuration needed to successfully compile a module has been left out of open suse11.3. If you want to replicate the problems may I suggest you attempt to compile the usb-skeleton.c driver example code that is included with each kernel. If it is the intent of the linux community to limit driver development to the professionals then congratulations.
