Ubuntu :: Last Kernel Update Broke My System Too

Feb 7, 2010

Firstly my gdesklets have gone, and if I try to run gdesklets then I get a blank window in the top left corner, followed by another blank window in the centre which disappears, then the first one fades to gray.

Secondly, clicking the 'running man' to exit just closes both gnome panels.

Ubuntu 8.04 (2.6.24-25)I know 8.04 is pretty old now, and I should probably start over, but it was all fine until this latest update.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Update Broke Fglrx 10.6/10.7 On 10.04

Nov 25, 2010

Posting from my Windows 7 system. Once again an Ubuntu kernel update has broken X. Once again I cannot get into Grub2, despite putting in the hacks to lengthen the time it listens. I don't need instructions on how to fix it from Live CD. I'm going to try Gentoo or something, anything, different. I need a Linux distro that can survive regular updates and boot to desktop reliably.

Ubuntu :: Kernel Update Broke The Nvidia?

Jan 29, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and ran the normal weekly updates last night. There were kernal updates listed but they have run alright before so I went ahead and let everything update.

On restart my Nvidia drivers would not load, so I restarted in low graphics mode. I uninstalled the Nvidia driver (with the intent of reinstalling them) but decided to restart before I reinstalled the driver (windows habit). upon restart I was told (in a very small box) that Ubuntu was running in low graphics mode.

I clicked ok and it proceeded to load, but it loaded it in regular mode and only the right half of the desktop is visible! It is like it is cut totally in half! And I can't get to the important side with Admin and Preferences. I tried boot options but that just gets me a very small colored box. There are no options when it boots just 3/4 of a box that says it is running in low graphics mode because "unable to load module "fglrx" module does not exist". I can not try and reinstall the Nvidia drivers because I can't see the part of the desktop that has Admin on it. I have used Ubuntu for several years now but have not used the terminal very often.

Ubuntu Networking :: Kernel Update Broke The Network Driver

Dec 23, 2010

I managed to get my Linksys AE1000 USB wireless adapter to work on Unbuntu 10.04 LTS.but recently I updated the kernel to 2.6.32-26 and when i rebooted I logged on to see my wireless connection was not working.even worse, I can't fn the links i had that showed me how to install it in the first place, its about the fact that the new kernel uses a different usb setup(probably incorrect, let me know it its incorrect). its an issue that the hacked driver isnt compatible with the new kernel release, how can i revert to the older version that it did work on? i'm using a RALinkTech driver [URL]

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.

Fedora :: Update Broke Computer - System Locked Up

Feb 12, 2010

Wednesday I went to work, docked and fired up my older Dell C840 laptop (running Fedora 12). It had a long list of updates that it downloaded and installed (it had been off for about a week). When the updates were finished, I noticed that my laptop had locked up. After waiting a while, I ended up doing a cold reboot. After that, I get the Fedora symbol that fills up, and then the screen goes black with a single cursor. You can type in anything and it is reflected- even control and ALT codes. If you hit CTL- ALT-F2, it goes into a terminal mode. You can do almost anything that you'd normally do in terminal mode. The video driver is the original off the install disk, and it's never been changed- it works fine right out of the box.

If I try to start up X-Windows, I get a segmentation fault error. I've tried deleting and then re-installing some of the packages that were updated (trying this via yum), no difference. I don't know what else to do. I need to get this laptop going before next week- it's my work computer and I do use it a lot. Is there any way to get in touch with the people who wrote the updates, and file a bug report? I'm using my main (home) system right now, that for a couple of reasons needs to stay on windoze XP for a few more weeks. I've been around computers for years, but not Linux.

OpenSUSE :: Update On 11.1 System Broke Multiple Programs?

Nov 6, 2010

I have 11.1 on a computer. I updated it yesterday. Now K3B, VLC, and XDVDShrink are all broken. Possibly other programs broken as well. VLC refuses to uninstall via Yast. These are high-priority programs for this computer. Multiple people use this computer for multimedia and there is not much to entertain ourselves with in our very cold climate. In other words, it is mandatory that K3B, VLC and XDVDShrink return to operational status.

Should I just upgrade to 11.3, try to fix the broken 11.1? I prefer using KDE3, not KDE4, but I can sacrifice.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: 11.4 - Kernel Update Broke Wireless

Aug 3, 2011

I just performed the newest kernel update to version 2.6.37.6-0.7 (desktop). Unfortunately, there is no update for the compat-wireless package available. It's still the version for kernel 2.6.37.6-0.5. Hence, my wireless is currently not working and I had to pull a cable through my apartment to write these lines. I actually thought due to the change of the very last digit in the kernel version that this should be a rather safe update. But I also had to recompile the modules of the NVidia driver and of Virtualbox. Does anyone has an idea when new compat-wireless modules will be available? Or do I have to re-compile them myself (I never had to do that before and I really hope that I don't have to)? Or is there a trick to make the old modules work?

CentOS 5 :: KVM Guest Performance After Kernel/system Update?

Mar 30, 2011

Last I upgraded one of our cent 5 boxes which is running kvm with a mix of centos and windows VMs.After the update performance just tanked on the XP guest, but the others (including other windows VMs) are just fine.I checked with our good friend google and didn't really get any help there.We're hoping to NOT have to rebuild the XP guest, so I thought I'd check in here first.

This is CentOS release 5.5 (Final) with kernel

Ubuntu :: Broke WiFi By Kernel Upgrade / What To Do?

Jan 13, 2010

I'm running Ultimate Edition 2.4 on an Acer Aspire 3500 lappy, yesterday I allowed my system to upgrade the kernel (from 9.10 kernel 2.6.31-17 to 2.6.31-18 generic) as per usual but when it rebooted I had no WiFi. The network manager didn't even have a wireless section, only wired, and I couldn't setup a wireless network either. If I reboot into the earlier 2.6.31-17 kernel everything is OK.
Another problem is that even tho I have no screensaver enabled and no power saving options enabled, (ie screen never disabled) after a short time of no use the screen goes blank. If within a few minutes I touch the pad or hit a key the screen returns but if it's been an hour or so nothing I do will wake it up,even tho there is still disk activity etc, and the only way to recover is with a hard reset, hold power key to reboot.

Ubuntu :: Php Update Broke PhpMyAdmin 10.04 LTS

May 2, 2011

I am having an issue with phpMyAdmin on my Xubuntu machine. I installed a few updates today and now my phpMyAdmin web interface site is not loading on the server. This is a local server running in my office. It appears that the page tries to load, but no output is delivered to the screen.

Taking a closer look at my updates, it looks like the following changes were made (along with some upgrades to Firefox):

When I use the 'Force Version....' command, I am given only two options the '4.8' version that I have now (the broken one) and a flat '4' version with no .7. Also, the force version didn't seem to do anything. I tried to Force a version and then mark a package for reinstall. When I did this Synaptic informed me that it was simply going to reinstall the 4.8 version.

What I would like to do is to revert to the 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.7 version of all of these files and then lock the version using Synaptic, to prevent this issue from recurring.

I am not afraid of heading to the command line either.

System Information:
32-Bit Xubuntu 10.04 LTS install
Athlon 3800+

Fedora :: Kernel Update Hangs System During Boot / Solve It?

Sep 4, 2010

I have a problem with the kernel update to 2.6.34.6. Up until 2.6.33.x my system boots fine, but with this update the boot stops at the moment that the mouse cursor should become visible. To resolve the problem, I've gone back to 2.6.33.x and removed the 2.6.34 kernel but I wonder what happens with the next kernel update.
Anyone else having this problem?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lmsensors Broke With Latest Kernel - Can't Boot / Fix It?

Where's the recovery console in 10.04? Apparently there's no Grub so holding escape to get to a boot menu to boot into a shell isn't an option for me it seems.

I just want a shell so I can remove lm-sensors or whatever package I installed that's made my system unboobatble.

Ubuntu :: Update Broke Windows And Icon Themes

Jan 11, 2010

I just did install the updates as they showed up with the Update manager, and now the themes are "broken." On startup, all windows are themed with the Redmond theme. When I open the Appearance dialog, some windows' theme come back. But nautilus still uses the Redmond theme (I'm not running it as root either). The icon theme is totally not taking effect. It's using the ugly gray icons regardless of what I have chosen. This all happened right after the latest update on Karmic, and after I've reinstalled my NVidia driver which breaks after every kernel update. I think it was a kernel update because the number of lines at the grub menu seemed to have increased.

Ubuntu :: Recent Update Broke Webcam / Sort It?

Feb 1, 2011

At some point in the last week, my webcam on 10.10 64bit mysteriously stopped working. The OS no longer recognises it as being there. It's an internal cam on a Clevo laptop and before this it's always worked perfectly.

Is there a way I can force the OS to recognise it? Or find out what broke it and fix it?
