OpenSUSE Install :: Remote Installation With Special Kernel Modules?

Feb 27, 2011

I want to remotely install OpenSUSE on one of my servers. I followed the instructions given at SDB:Remote installation - openSUSE, but it didn't work. (My server reverted back to the already installed system.) I think this has to do with a special kernel module (megaraid_sas) that is necessary for the raid controller. Without this module, the kernel cannot find any disk. Of course, the module is not included in the initrd provided by OpenSUSE. I know how to add files to the initrd, but I have no idea where I have to put the required kernel module and which config file inside the initrd must be modified to make the kernel load the module.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Start VirtualBox Kernel Modules - Error Stopping VirtualBox Kernel Modules

Mar 23, 2011

I was trying to install VirtualBox through the YaST > Software Management but it is not working, someone in the forum told me that I have to download the OSE version and do it manual way. Finally I am able to start up VB but not able to use the network connection. Thus I am trying to do this:

/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup. I get this error:


When I type dmesg, it shows me a bunch of info which I don't know what should look for. When I type modprobe vboxnetflt, I get the error: FATAL: Error inserting vboxnetflt (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format. what should I do in order to get my VB to be able to connect to the internet?

Slackware :: ERROR: No /lib/modules/ Kernel Modules Tree Found For Kernel "" ... For Mkinitrd - Encrypted Installation

Jul 22, 2010

I am trying to setup Slacware 13.1 x86_64 to a encrypted partition. I used the README_CRYPT.TXT howto : [URL] At the step when I create an initrd.gz I get this error: Quote: ERROR: No /lib/modules/ kernel modules tree found for kernel ""

I tried to look into the directory and there was only modules under So I tried to change the command into: Quote: mkinitrd -c -k -m ext3 -f ext3 -r cryptroot -C /dev/sda2

This command was successful, but I don't know if this is alright. I made the changes in lilo.conf, add initrd = initrd.gz. This is all on unencrypted /boot partition. The boot=/dev/sda1 I also set for the unencrypted boot partition. When I boot the system I get a kernel panic:

OpenSUSE Install :: Compiling Modules Against Kernel?

Feb 26, 2010

I am having some issues compiling kernel modules against the pre-built OpenSUSE kernel. Whenever I compile a module and try to load it, I get something like:

insmod fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko
insmod: error inserting 'fs/smbfs/smbfs.ko': -1 Invalid module format
It doesn't actually matter what the module is, they all do the same thing. I have tried the above mentioned smbfs, I've also tried:vmware kernel module

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

Fedora Installation :: New Kernel Will Not Boot (Modules)

Mar 26, 2011

The new kernel upgrade on Fedora 14 will not boot. lib/modules do not exist is the message. Grub was adjusted to match the old kernel, and the new kernel when booting says lib/modules do not exist. The old kernel has twice as many modules as the new kernel in lib/modules. How do I get the new modules to install so I can boot with the new kernel then? Should I reinstall the new kernel?

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

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:

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Restricted Modules Not Updating With Latest Kernel Updates Lucid 10.04

May 8, 2010

I have noticed in the recent updates there is a Kernel update 2.6.32-22 but there is no restricted modules included. On my Desktop I have a Nvidia card which I installed the driver using the Hardware Drivers Application. As far as I know these Drivers are ether reinstalled or updated whenever there is a kernel update.

I also have a Laptop with a ATI Radeon card which I did run the updates and ended up (after the reboot) in low graphics mode, after a bit of work I was able to reinstall the drivers and get my desktop back so that's ok now.

I had this problem a few years ago with an old version of Ubuntu, kernel updates but no restricted drivers. The drivers turned up the next day and all was fine. I was just wandering if this is a known issue with Lucid or if anyone else has had this problem, It's been a couple of days since I noticed the Kernel update but still Restricted Modules. Oh I'm using Ubuntu Lucid 10.04

OpenSUSE Install :: Batch Rename Files With Special Characters?

I have about 300 files that need renaming, because the file system does not display the French characters properly. The dodgy letter in question has been replaced by a "question mark in a black diamond" symbol.No way of renaming, other then using mv in the Konsole has worked. Is there any way, script or program out there, that will do a batch rename?

OpenSUSE Install :: Yast Modules Always Restart?

May 22, 2011

I've got a weird problem since the update to 11.4: every time I use a yast module (the problem occurs with all of them), when I've finished (press OK or Cancel), it relaunch the module after the work is done. For example, launch the Package Manager, choice a package to install press OK : it performs the install and then relaunch the Package Manager. If you choose to quit, it will relaunch it... The only way to stop it to kill the process (or killx).The same problem occurs with the terminal version of yast. it's linked to a config file of yast under root or something so? I haven't found such problems reported on the internet.

Fedora Installation :: Error - "Your System Does Not Seem To Be Set Up To Build Kernel Modules"

Dec 27, 2009

I'm trying to install Sun VirtualBox Additions into Fedora 12 which is installed in VirtualBox running on top of Windows 7. As the Fedora install was originally a live distro which was then installed to the HD, it may be missing some essential files for compiling.

My attempt to install the VBoxLinux additions is incomplete and I can't get the full range of video displays. The largest is This is the error message: "Your system does not seem to be set up to build kernel modules".

Should I update Fedora to install all the updates available? I did find one webpage which gave an accurate list of files to install for this purpose but can't find it now.

Security :: Use Different PAM Modules Depending On Local/remote Access?

I'm using a fingerprint reader on my laptop, works pretty well:

$sudo echo hi
Please swipe your finger:
[swipe finger here of course]


Like I said, it works nicely... until I try to SSH in and sudo something remotely, when it will ask me kindly to swipe my finger over the reader that's attached to the laptop which is on my desk at home thirty kilometres away. Naturally there's no method built into pam_fprint to abort via a keypress.

So, is there any way to tell PAM to only use certain modules if I'm in a locally logged in session?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Error "modprobe: FATAL Could Not Load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 Generic Modules No Such File Or Directory"

Apr 14, 2011

Tonight I installed ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit) on an external usb harddrive with a dvd I burned and I used my older desktop. I disconnected all internal and external drives first so everything had to be put on the usb drive I selected (only option available). I used the option to load extra software, use the entire hard drive, and let the software do it's thing. I basically had no options where to put things and it didn't have much choice.

When I boot the usb drive on my laptop (win 7 64 bit) by telling the bios to boot to it first... I get an error: modprobe: FATAL Could not load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 generic modules No such file or directory. This message appears twice and then it does boot into ubuntu and seems to work fine. I'm new to this OS so that is an uneducated guess but the things I have done seem to be working. So exactly what is this error referring too? Is there a way to fix the problem or do I just ignore it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation From USB Stick With Custom Kernel

Feb 10, 2010

i need to install openSUSE 11.2 from an USB stick. I followed this article SuSE install from USB drive - openSUSE using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-i586.iso. Unfortunately the kernel provided in this image doesn't load on my target as it needs a few extra modules for its chipset.

Thus i copied our custom kernel (which is verified to run on the target) and its initrd to the usb stick and i also created a new entry in the syslinux.config. The kernel loads, but then it can't find the root device.Does anybody know, how i need to configure the initrd to make the USB stick the root device?

OpenSUSE Install :: No Kernel Was Found / Installation May Have Failed

Mar 23, 2010

I installed OpenSuSE 11.2 64bit from a Linux Magazine #111 dvd and now cannot create DomU guests. The exact error is in the subject line. It is sitting on a software RAID-1 partionion on two (mirrored) hard disks. When I first install - formatting all partitions - it reports error 17 and won't load the OS. After running the Repair installed system from the DVD I get the impression it is doing things twice rather than doing the repairs once on the RAIDed partition. Should I go back to 11.1?
