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 :: 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 Installation :: Kernel Update To 2.6.32-22 Broke My Sound / Get That Back?

Jun 4, 2010

I just updated my kernel from 2.6.32-21 to 2.6.32-22 today. Now I am getting no sound. I have checked my mixer levels with both kmix and alsamixer. Nothing appears to be amiss. I tried rebooting with the old kernel and still no sound.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Update On 9.04 To Kernel 2.6.28.18 No Nvidia?

Feb 5, 2010

9.04 this morning updated my kernel to I believe it is 2.6.28.18 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.

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?

Fedora :: NVidia Drivers And Kernel Update

Jun 17, 2011

I updated FC14 which included the kernel and also the nvidia drivers kmod. Then after a reboot the video driver wouldn't load. From another terminal I tried different things to fix it and didn't managed. I eventually erased all nvidia drivers so that I can get the default one. Now every time it boots I get a really low light. I can login, but can't see. It seems that the whole screens has about 5% light and I can't see to do anything. I managed now to boot into FC live CD for FC15 and I have light. For FC14 live CD it's the same no light problem.

I tried all older kernels to boot but I have the same problem. I am using PAE kernel and that's why I installed the kmod drivers. But now, since they are not anymore and I can't see anything, even though I am logged in I don't know what to do next. Is there something I can do from FC15 live cd? How can I go using the terminal to my harddisk and how to add the driver or any low graphic driver so that I can have light? After I did yum erase *nvidia* the light went almost off.

Fedora :: F15 Kernel 2.6.38.8-35 Update Wont Boot - Nvidia ?

Jul 12, 2011

I have just updated my kernel to version 2.6.38.8-35 in Fedora 15, it now refuses to boot that kernel. I just get a lot of text on the screen and nothing happens. I can ctrl-alt-fn to get to a prompt, but I do not know how to fix the nvidia problem.

When I edit Xorg.conf and replace 'nvidia' with 'nv' the new kernel boots but only to fallback mode, trying to then re-install the nvidia drivers shows them to be already installed and I can get no further.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Died With Last Kernel Update In Squeeze

Oct 21, 2010

It was no surprise that I needed to reinstall the nvidia driver after a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel update a couple days ago, but I was surprised that it didn't work. I've had to drop back to a kernel I compiled a few weeks ago, which is basically the stock 2.6.32-5-686 from that time, with a timer frequency of 1000 and desktop preemption.
Vid card is GeForce PCX 5750
Using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run

This is the command I used:
env CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.3 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run
(After it didn't work, I ran it with --uninstall and tried installing again. No luck with that.)

Here's the nvidia installer log (sorry about the encoding. I don't know what happened with that): [URL]
rivafb, nvidiafb and rivatv are not loaded.

I don't see it in this one, but on a previous attempt, I saw an error message that said no nvidia graphics card was found. I've been suspicious that the card is slowly dying, based on problems like gray blocks on the screen or (in an older lenny install) persistence of the contents of a window appearing inside a terminal, when I switch desktops from the one where the browser is open to the one where the terminal is open. Scrolling the artifact off-screen and back, or window-shading the terminal and then un-shading it causes it to re-draw correctly.

Fedora :: X Doesn't Seem To Start After Kernel And Nvidia Driver Update?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm running Fedora 13 x64 and updated the kernel to the latest version (2.6.34.7-56 to 2.6.34.7-61). I use the proprietary nvidia drivers (currently 260.19.12) so I had to compile the kernel module against the new kernel sources and reinstall the driver. The process was apparently successful, but when I try to start X nothing happens, it's as if the computer had been suspended, my monitor acts like it isn't receiving any input. I have full runlevel 3 access, and the system seems pretty much fine up to that point. Nvidia's own sanity tests which are built into the installer reported no problems with my driver.

Fedora :: Can't Install Nvidia Devdriver In FC15 After Kernel Update To 2.6.40-4

Aug 14, 2011

Whenever I update my kernel, I have to re-install the NVIDIA drivers, and this has always worked for me so far. I have the latest version of the Developer Drivers for Linux (270.41.19). After updating to the 2.6.40-4.fc15.x86_64 kernel, the nvidia installer fails with the error (/var/log/nvidia-installer.log):

Quote:

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel installed on your system. If you specified a separate output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.

ERROR:

The kernel sources are installed. Installation works properly in 2.6.38.8-32.fc15.x86_64

General :: Download NVIDIA Driver From The Command Line After Kernel Update?

Nov 19, 2009

I compiled the 2.6.31.6 kernel and <insert drumroll> it boots!(my first kernel roll, I'm kind of shocked actually) That's the good news. The bad news is that my NVIDIA drivers are gone in the wind. That's not entirely true as I can still boot into the old kernel and startx. Is there a way to download the driver using the command line for reinstall?

xserver-common (2:1.10.4-1) was upgrade today in Sid to xserver-common (2:1.11.0-1) breaking my nvidia driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-280.13.run). There is a temporary fix as showen below.

Section "ServerFlags"

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Driver Broken After Kernel Update / "System InstallArchive() Error" When Installing?

Jan 30, 2011

I had a working ubuntu 10.10 system two days ago with kernel 2.6.35-24. I have a gtx 460 card so I have the driver from Jockey/Additional Drivers installed.

Two days ago update manager prompted me to install 2.6.35-25. I've never had problems updating kernels so I did. I Rebooted my machine and gdm/gnome no longer starts. I always get stuck on the tty1 screen. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that my current NVidia drivers seems to be messing it up. So I booted into my older kernel (2.6.35-24) and removed my NVidia driver.

I used these steps to switch from nvidia to nouveau:
NvidiaDriverSwitching

I can now boot into my latest kernel (2.6.35-25) but now I'm having problems trying to reinstall the nvidia drivers.

jockey sometimes doesn't list any available drivers. and when it does, it gives me an "System InstallArchive() error" when trying to install.

I tried installing nvidia-current via apt-get and I get these errors:

Code:
Setting up nvidia-current (260.19.06-0ubuntu1) ...
Removing old nvidia-current-260.19.06 DKMS files...
dkms.conf: Error! No 'DEST_MODULE_LOCATION' directive specified.

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+
