I'm just installed OpenSuse 11.3 (64) on a 30gb SSD, hoping to get virtualbox 4.0 running to virtualize an instance of Windows 7.I went through some pain with my Nvidia video card and actually getting vb to install, but through lots of searching and tinkering got here.I created a vm in the vb control panel, but when I go to start it I get:

The virtual machine 'Win7Main' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.

Fedora :: Recent Kernel Update Won't Boot ?

Aug 10, 2009

The girlfriend did an update a few nights ago. Besides removing her NVidia drivers, it also installed kernel version

That kernel was causing problems. Now it won't boot at all. How do we remove that kernel altogether?

If we remove it, would simply doing another update from the previous (still working) kernel just try to reinstall that bad kernel?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Since Recent Kernel Update?

Aug 20, 2010

Today, I installed the recent kernel security update (i.e. 2.6.32-24-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP). After a reboot, the sound is gone.

From my user account:
mpc@awd:~$ alsamixer
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory

Same problem with "aumix".

However, the commands "sudo alsamixer" and "sudo aumix" seem to work (but still no sound).

"lsmod | grep snd" will give

snd_hda_codec_realtek 203310 1
snd_hda_intel 21941 0

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Install An Older Kernel As Recent Kernel Is Not Compatible?

Feb 11, 2010

A few days ago yast did update my computer to a new kernel-desktop

My mainboard is an ASUS P4P800-VM with Intel ICH5 chipset. This new kernel is not able, to poweroff my computer. Older kernels were able to poweroff the computer.

How can I roll back to the older kernel? Yast does only offer the recent kernel.

In /boot there are only files of the recent kernel.

Intel Pentium 4 HT, 3000 MHz, Frontside 800 MHz/Cache 1 MB
3 GB Ram
AGP nVidia 7600GS/512 MB, nVidia driver 190.53, installed from yast.
PCI WLan TP-Link 951N (Atheros chipset, WLan N, driver ath9 was automatically installed)

Ubuntu :: Hangs On Boot Up After Most Recent Kernel Update To Version 2.6.38-11

Sep 1, 2011

The most recent kernel update, to version 2.6.38-11 has been a horror. It hangs on boot up. Sometimes I can get to the log in screen, then it hangs there as well. However, after 3-5 reboots (which is absolutely annoying to do when I just want to use my computer), it sometimes loads up finally. However, if I go to older Linux version in the Grub menu, then I can select 2.6.38-10 and it runs just fine.

So I am looking for a way to fix this problem, whether it be removing the most recent kernel update, or making 2.6.38-10 boot up by default. I noticed that the kernels are listed in the synaptic package manager, but I am afraid to remove the most recent one via synaptic. Is it as simple as removing the Linux version and headers I don't want, or are there other things I need to do in order to make 2.6.38-10 my default kernel at start-up?

Debian :: Automatic Removal Of Kernel Headers Package When Kernel Packages Are Removed

Dec 28, 2008

As a follow-on to something Telemachos said in another post:

I would have thought that removing a given kernel package would trigger the removal of the older kernel headers. Can someone confirm that is, or is not, the behavior? I ask this because it seemed to me that the older kernel header packages were indeed removed when I removed some older kernel packages.

For example, the linux kernels I have installed are:


Also, the linux-headers packages I have installed are:


So, when I get around to removing the linux-image-2.6.25-2-amd64 package like this:


I would expect apt-get to automatically also remove linux-headers-2.6.25-2-amd64 and linux-headers-2.6.25-2-common. Is that what will happen, or do I need to explicitly state all three packages on the apt-get remove command?

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?

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Kernel-headers Glibc And Glibc-headers?

May 11, 2010

Yesterday, I think I did something stupid: I removed kernel-headers, gcc, glibc-devel and glibc-headers. My box is a CentOS 5.4 webserver (it has loads of packages installed, but that was done through Virtualmin config, so it's quite coherent all in all). The thing is that now I need to reinstall at least the headers and glibc, but hey! this is what I get :

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Ndiswrapper 1.55 Won't Compile - "The Program 'kernel-headers' Is Missing On Your System"

Jan 24, 2010

I am using Opensuse 11.2 on an HP Pavilion laptop. The internal wireless (Broadcom device) quit on me - It is no longer detected at boot so I assume it is dead. No problem since I have a D_Link USB adaptor (DWL-G132). To get it working however I need ndiswrapper. I then installed ndiswrapper 1.55 and the user interface supplied with Opensuse. Problem1- The interface says "The program 'kernel-headers' is missing on your system".

I have checked with Yast and the kernel-headers are installed. Problem2- I have downloaded ndiswrapper 1.55 from to attempt the traditional installation method. The 'make' command returns the following message: "Cannot find kernel version in /lib/modules/, is it configured?."

OpenSUSE Install :: Install A Recent Kernel And Then Compile Some Variations?

Jan 25, 2011

I'm running 11.2 with standard repositories (plus packman). I want to install a recent kernel and then compile some variations of it (to investigate a hardware problem).

So I took these steps:

(1) add the 11.2 Kernel:/HEAD repository
(2) enable multiversion in zypp.conf
(3) use YaST software management to select the kernel development pattern

Note that at the moment, the standard 11.2 kernel ( is in use and I have not selected any packages from HEAD. But it has installed 2.6.37-41.1 versions of all the kernel packages I didn't already have (source & docs etc) instead of the 2.6.31 versions. /usr/src/linux symlinks to linux-2.6.37-41 instead of to a directory for the running kernel!

(1) it should have loaded the packages corresponding to the running kernel
(2) it's not supposed to switch repositories

Red Hat :: RHEL4 Strange Kernel Panic On Boot - Kernel Update No Solution

Dec 31, 2008

I have the following strange thing with a RHEL4 installation. Since last week, the system did a reboot and now something is really fucked up. During boot we get the following messages (don't care about 'strange' typo's, my colleague typed it 'blind' from the screen)


The strange thing is that we never see a 'could not mount blabla' or similar messages. First we thought it was a failing kernel update by plesk, but even after manually updating the kernel with RHN RPM's, still the same message. Booting with rescue mode and then chroot the system works. After that we even can start things like plesk and so on.

We double checked things with another RHEL4 install, and at least two things were odd:

1: the working machine has /dev/dm-0 and /dev/dm-1, the broken one doesn't

2: some files on /dev didn't have group root, but 252

We tried to recreate the /dev/dm-X nodes with [vgmknodes -v], output:


A fdisk /dev/sda shows: /dev/sda2 XX XXX XXXXX Linux LVM (I removed the numbers because this line is from another machine, but rest was identical)

We have a copy of the boot partition so if one need more info please let me know.

Ubuntu :: Update For A New Kernel, But Kernel Version Hasn't Changed

At the moment I am using kernel 2.6.31-14-generic. I'm not one of those people who needs to have the latest and greatest kernel to be happy, I just rely on the update manager. I swore that I saw an update for a new kernel, but my kernel version hasn't changed. I'm just curious if there was a new kernel that was released or if that was just an update to the kernel listed above.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Update On 9.04 To Kernel No Nvidia?

Feb 5, 2010

9.04 this morning updated my kernel to I believe it is and upon the reboot I had no desktop. It booted wanting to go into low graphics.

So I drop to shell and stop the gdm and try to run the latest nvidia run file I have and it hangs saying I have a x server running.

Otherwise I am needing assistance with getting my desktop back! I can boot into an older kernel and if need be I would like to roll back that latest update this morning, but once again I am forgetting the command line for that.
