Debian :: Security Update 'broke' Kernel / Recompile It?

May 25, 2011

I installed the latest security update for squeeze. It entailed an update of the kernel. Now when it boots, it give continuous kernel error messages about "can't enumerate usb .... " I have a custom kernel compiled from source (not sure about the patch level) from the same kernel 2.6.32. It seems to work OK. Should I worry about the security of this custom kernel or should I try to recompile it? I don't really know how to do any patching of the kernel source.

General :: Kernel Panic In 64bit Arch Linux After Kernel Recompile - 2.6.35-rc3

Jun 15, 2010

I have recompiled a few kernels, but all on 32bit systems so not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Running Arch Linux 64bit, most recent version.

Kernel Output:


My first thoughts was that it might be my grub bootloader configuration, so had a big play around with that but it didn't fix it. Also made sure support was built for filesystems. However almost all that Fstab mounts are ext3 anyway, and certainly the root and /boot are. Now thinking it may be a memory error so will run a check when I shutdown.

CentOS 5 :: Broken Kernel / How To Recompile?

Dec 15, 2009

I tried to run some virtual machine using Virtual Machine Manager but the guest OS (windows server 2003) was not able to "see" the rest of my network. I believe VMM did some NAT-ing (192.168.122.x subnet) so i'm not able to "see" my network. I tried various network setting in VMM but couldnt get it to pull my network IP (192.168.1.x subnet).So i installed VirtualBox as a work around because i know VB work when i tried it on my windows machine. I ran into some issue getting VB to run, i think it was that i need to compile the kernel to "optimize" it for VB. I am fairly new to linux so that the impression that i get when i research for the fix to get VB working. In some of the forum post people suggest few things and it seem to me like it to compile the kernel. After a few hours of working i finally got it to compile but the computer crashed during compilation.

I am guess what happened is that i was trying to optimize the kernel for VB but the version of kernel i was using (2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen) is already optimized for xen (VMM) so it crashed. I am looking to restore or recompile the 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5xen kernel. I am not sure if this is the right thing to do to fix it. With my limited knowledge of linux that all i can think of.

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

Ubuntu :: Minimal Kernel Recompile- Init Hangs At Plymouth

Dec 23, 2010

I've been playing around in attempt to see how small a usable kernel I can build. The theory is that it should mainly be useful for preparing a recovery disk or some such thing; disk drivers and a few network drivers are what goes in.

I built the kernel with the attached config. It boots, reaches the hdd (if I specify root as /dev/sda5 manually), then dies when it tries to start Plymouth (something about catching a SEGV signal). What needs to be enabled to run Plymouth? Alternatively, has anyone managed to remove plymouth from boot on Maverick?

(That would require a modified mountall version, I know.) I'm using the mainstream kernel sources on Maverick (yes, I know Maverick uses 2.6.35; but this does boot).

Hardware: Wireless-RTL8192SE b/g/n, uses an out-of-tree driver (r8192se_pci, from Realtek; Ubuntu builds in an older version of this driver); r8169 works for ethernet; ATI Radeon Mobility 3200 graphics, AMD Neo X2 cpu; SATA hd in AHCI mode.

General :: Your Debian System Suffered A Kernel Failure

Feb 10, 2010

This error message appears in the varlog

The situation is I removed the ADSL card from my desktop as I have no use for it for the moment. I am guessing that the motherboard is still trying to detect the Sangoma ADSL card. What is the best way to resolve this problem, uninstall the drivers for the ADSL card or change the settings in the system configuration files?

The system is not affected by this removal, just get prompted regularly about this error as configured in the kerneloops client.

Debian :: Unplug USB Drive - Kernel Failure - System Will Not Shut Down

Jul 13, 2011

I have a flash drive that I regularly use on my laptop. If I unplug the flash drive without first unmounting it, I get a popup notification of a kernel failure (with diagnostics sent to Then, if I attempt to shut down the system via the console, it hangs on "The system is going down for halt/reboot NOW!" and doesn't actually shut down. Using Gnome's graphical System > Shut Down feature just logs me out and sends me to the login screen; the shutdown feature from there does nothing. I have to disconnect the power cord on the laptop in order to shut it down, and I don't like doing this.

System: 32-bit Debian Squeeze stable with kernel version 2.6.32-5-686, running Gnome 2.30.2, on an Acer Aspire 5570z.

I use Keepassx to store my passwords and keep the keyfile for my password database on the flash drive in question. I mention this just in case it helps determine what's causing the failure.

dmesg has quite a bit to say about this:

Debian Installation :: Upgrade / System Broken After Moving To 3.16 Kernel

Apr 28, 2015

I got a rather big problem since an attempt to upgrade.My debian version is 8.0.I upgraded when apt proposed the change. I did that in two steps, with apt-get upgrade and then apt-get dist-upgrade, with the installation of a new kernel. I moved from 3.2.0-4-686-pae to 3.16.0-4-686-pae.Since the upgrade, I can't boot my system any longer.During the boot sequence, this message appears with a countdown (it's copied by hand) :

Code: Select all(1 of 4) a start job is running for dev-disk-byX2du

At the end of the countdown, the boot sequence starts again, and ends up on an invite to log in as root in rescue mode. I can't connect (maybe due to some azerty/qwerty issue, I got a French keyboard. I tried to type in "qwerty mode", with no success (the password is not prompted)).I can connect with the 3.2 kernel however, selecting it form the grub interface. I can't log in in rescue mode either, but with this kernel the boot sequence goes on and I can log as a regular user or as root, at the end of the boot sequence. There is no X, but the system seems to work.What could I do to make the system boot properly with the new kernel, or to go back to the 3.2 version ?

2) or change some kernel parameters in configuration file and rebuild the kernel

Is there any another solution for this to update operating system to detect the more RAM
