Slackware :: DSL Modem Firmware Is Not Loaded After Kernel Upgrade

May 24, 2010

I have a zyxel dsl (usb) moden, which needs a firmware portion to work, called cxacru-fw.bin.

I have been using this modem using with at least two different slackware distributions, even when the atm drivers were not included in the kernel.

Presently I am using slackware 13.0, with the vmlinuz-huge-smp- kernel.

I downlowded the 2.6.34 kernel, because I need it for a new webcam, compiled and installed it, and oops! the modem does not work anymore.

I am pretty sure I have configured the kernel correctly; dmesg tells me the modem is recognized by the kernel, as it is with the previous one, but the firmware is not loaded, because the DSL led remains off.

I attach the kernel configuration lines:

I have tried forcing the kernel to load the firmware, using but it didn't work either.

General :: Disable 3G USB Modem Internal Storage From Being Loaded By System Kernel?

Mar 1, 2011

I've got a problem with my 3G modem [Huawei E122].
It has internal storage and kernel assigns a device [/dev/sdX] to it.
Because of that, every second time my machine will not boot - kernel panic - as my usb hdd gets assigned /dev/sdb instead of /dev/sda.
I cannot use LABEL nor UUID in root= kernel parameter, as it is only available when using initrd, and I can't use it - I am using Debian on my router - mips architecture machine.
I have to prevent this from happening, as my router has to start everyday and I have to be sure it works ok. I don't have physical access to restart it when something goes wrong.
I don't use my modem internal storage, there's no SD card inserted. However kernel detects the reader and loads it.
I can not prevent loading od usb drivers since my hdd is on USB as well.

Slackware :: Vboxdrv Kernel Module Is Not Loaded

Sep 9, 2010

I installed VirtualBox-OSE and VirtualBox-Kernel from the Slackbuilds at I start VirtualBox I get the following message on the CLI: Code: WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded.Either there is no module available for the current kernel ( or it failed to load.Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup.You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.I gave /etc/rc.d/rc.vboxdrv executable permissions, and then ran.The only issue is, I have to do this each time that I reboot, should I add 'modprobe vboxdrv' to one of the startup scripts or is something else wrong?

Slackware :: Make 3.82 Can't Compile Newest Kernel With Firmware Built-in

Jul 30, 2010

after upgrading to make 3.82, I can not compile the newest kernel: 2.6.35-rc6-git5´╝îit failed with:

GEN /home/aaa/tools/kernel/output/35/Makefile
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/generated/utsrelease.h


Maybe 3.82 has some backward-incompatibility that breaks kernel compilation.

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.

Slackware :: Upgrade To The Kernel > 2.6.29 On Slack 12.2

May 5, 2010

can I upgrade the kernel on my slack 12.2 to the version 2.6.29 or higher?I need the kernel must support the KMS mechanism.Why I need KMS? I want to define virtual screen of size greater than 2048 x 2048. Why I need so huge virtual screen?To run two-display configuration on my dual-head Intel graphic card. At the moment I can set max 2048 x 2048 virtual screen which is not enough for my two displays:LCD of notebook has 1400 x 1050 resolution, and external LCD panel 1280 x 1024. At this moment a part of desktop is on both displays. Small part but causes some problems, and at this moment only awesome (really awesome) window manager can handle this configuration.

Slackware :: Re-Installing The Kernel (damaged After Upgrade)?

Jun 1, 2010

How you doing all? I've my Slackware 13 box. Recently, I have upgraded to -current, and while the upgrade I noticed that my connection went down while it was downloading the new kernel. I had doubts that it got damaged.

slackpkg upgrade-all and found every thing is up to date. While upgrading, the system asked me to run lilo, and I did. But after rebooting, I got the (Kernel Panic) error. I logged back in using setup disk, and the chroot to my original system root directory. I removed the current Kernels, and now I need to re-install it.. there I'm stuck. Slackpkg isn't working because the box is not connecting to the internet. or links is more than appreciated since I'm not geek enough to sort it by my own. Also few googling didn't set me up with a solution so far.

Slackware :: Unsafe To Upgrade The Kernel With Slapt-get?

Jan 29, 2010

I noticed that slapt-get excludes a lot of package titles based on aaa, glibc, and kernel. I've been wondering why, and haven't been able to find any definitive answers... Anyone here have any ideas on why that is? My Slackware installation is currently kernel (I think) and the newest available on the official repositories is (or something like that).

When I put in slapt-get --upgrade it spits out about 15 packages that are excluded that it won't upgrade. Now, I know I can remove the exclusions by editing the slapt-get configuration file, but I don't want to if it's going to screw something up. So my question is: Is there a reason those are excluded? Is it unsafe to upgrade the kernel with slapt-get?

Ubuntu Networking :: LinuxWiMAX - Firmware Installation - Modem Works Fine But Failing To Install Drivers

May 17, 2011

I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.

I downloaded:-
i2400m firmware 1.5.0
WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2

According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.

Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was


But unfortunately and annoyingly the result is


I didn't get it. Am I missing any package or something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Error: No Loaded Kernel

Apr 26, 2010

I've been looking forward to making the switch to Ubuntu for a while, but ever since I did, the road's been pockmarked with errors and hassles. That's, primarily, because I don't know what the hell I'm doing. Let me explain how I installed Ubuntu: All I did to install Ubuntu was download the file from the website and run the program. I didn't burn anything onto a CD or USB; I just clicked on the .exe file and let it run from there. Everything worked great - all I had to do was boot my laptop and choose from either Windows 7 or Ubuntu. Now, I had no idea how to watch videos, so I started to install a lot of stuff from the Synaptic Download Manager. Now, I don't know all of what I downloaded, but it was mainly games. The next thing I know, I get this page when I choose Ubuntu:


GNU GRUB version 1.97~beta4
[minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completion. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device/file completions.]
sh:grub> _

So I hit TAB and try the easiest command on the list, BOOT. This is what I get when I try boot:


error: no loaded kernel

So I don't know what I did wrong.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Error 8: Kernel Must Be Loaded Before Booting

Nov 16, 2010

I'm relatively new to Linux, and have broken many more things than I have fixed.. I guess that's the learning process eh? So here's my problem: I've been experimenting with the mount command, and have mounted my local file system (sda1) to a directory (/mnt/test). I was attempting to mount an external hard drive, and sda1 clearly was not the correct drive (I did eventually discover where the external was located, however sda1 remains tied to that directory). I rebooted my system, and now the Grub command prompt loads. When I type "boot" I'm presented with "Error 8: Kernel must be loaded before booting". I'm assuming this is because I mounted my local file system, but I could be wrong. Does anyone have any ideas how I could remedy this?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Nvidia Driver Seems To Hang Kernel Before Its Even Loaded?

Nov 18, 2010

I used to have FC11 installed with the nvidia supplied binary driver. Worked fine, very stable. Trying FC12 and FC13 live CDs caused a hang, so I stuck with FC11. FC14 live CD did boot so I backed up my own files and did a clean FC14 install. Upgraded to get kernel, installed the nvidia driver from RPMFusion (260.19.21) and had a working system! Now, after a cold boot, the kernel always hangs during boot. Tried a number of kernel boot option (apci=off, noapic and a few others too). The hang is not always at the same place. The earliest it has hung is after:Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint

Sometimes its a few lines later at:NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 260.19.12 ...(which would seem to imply that the hang can even occur a step or two before the actual driver is loaded!)

Sometimes it keeps going for a few more seconds and randomly hangs during some other driver load.

Without a specific nvidia driver the system always boots ok, so I'm pretty sure its the nvidia driver but I just can't seem to get a handle on this in a reproducible way. Sometimes, when I have make some other change, it will boot and work ok, but a reboot locks it up again (for example, in case it was SELinux, I disabled it and on the next reboot it booted and worked ok. Then, next boot, it wasn't working again). When I make changes, I reboot using the previous kernel, make the changes and reboot, with an occasional success. Once I start rebooting using the latest kernel, it always hangs.

I'd love to get a solution to this, but even some advice on debugging this would be appreciated!

I'm using 8600GT, 256Mb, PCIe card in a MA69VM motherboard with 3Gb of RAM.

General :: Loaded Kernel Modules On Virtual Server And CSF Confusion

Dec 24, 2010

what is happening on my Centos virtual server (ps I'm having a great time re-learning Linux after a large gap and usually try and find out myself but this has me confused) First thing I did was install Tomcat and try and change the port to 80 using iptables -nat and it complained a kernel module was missing. Instead setup Apache to redirect requests so that's now working I then tried to install CSF firewall and the validation perl script returned fatal errors so I assumed OK my virtual server Kernel is restricted and used denyhosts instead which is working great

Here's the confusion.. I later retried the csftest script and it now works including all the iptables and nat stuff that fataled before. I've not rebooted or changed anything except run denyhosts and the postgres daemon + ended a few daemons that I didn't need (eg pickup,tlsmgr,courier,postfix,qmgr,saslauthd) Running lsmod returns nothing and /proc/modules is zero bytes so I'm not able to tell what is loaded? I'm tempted to try and get Tomcat redirecting via iptables and see what happens but if it works I don't like that something seems to have changed.. before I ran it direct as root now I'm SU into root from another login
