CentOS 5 :: Create New RAM Image File To Get Server Load Raid1 Module Upon Start - Mkinited Error No Kernel Available For 'inited-2.6.18-128.el5"
Nov 12, 2009
I'm trying to create new RAM image file to get my server load raid1 module upon start, I was following redhat documentation & it suggested to use the following command mkinited --with=raid1 inited-raid1-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) However after running this command I'm getting this message No Kernel available for 'inited-2.6.18-128.el5"
for the last few releases, starting with 9.04 i've been having serious crashing problems with the nvidia driver. whether i installed it manually using the latest drivers directly from nvidia, or installing them through the restricted driver option. after a few hours CRASH. it's been awful. and i tried everything from this side to the moon to fix this issue, all to no avail. no idea why i've even stayed with ubuntu after all these issues. came from the debian world back in 5.04, and almost moved back a few times. but i did a clean install of 10.04, and thought i'd give the nvidia driver one last chance... if it didn't work i'd be moving back home to debian (with the suspicion the issue would stay).
so after i tried the restricted driver and CRASH. nothing to fix it. then i thought ok i'll try to use the latest driver from nvidia. but ran into this error when installing it:
Quote: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module nvidia.ko. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s), or NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is not supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release. so after googling around i found a fix to this error i was getting during the install:

I have a CentOS 5.5 server that has just recently been updated to 5.6 running PostgreSQL 8.4 and Drupal for an internal website. The server is also acting as a shared network storage between the Linux server and Windows desktops with Samba.
I just recently purchased a license to run Symantec Backup Exec System Restore 2010 for Linux and the only operating systems that are supported are RedHat and Suse Linux.
Does anyone know of a nice open source solution that we can use to create backup images of the server?
In the event of a server crash, we want to be able to rebuild the server via a bit-by-bit backup image.
I have a CentOS server that has all of the applications and security settings that I want. I would like to create a bootable ISO image of that server that can be installed across a wide variety of hardware platforms. What are the recommended tools for doing this with CentOS?
The motherboard currently installed on my PC has a RAID Utility (Ctrl+I) at the startup that allow creating RAID1. But I already have a system installed with CentOS 5.4. In order to protect my data, I need RAID1. Can I add another Hard Drive now and have the data mirrored and synced onto both hard drives as if it was in RAID1 right from the beginning?
I'm trying to set up a virtual machine environment in Centos5.5. My hardware fully supports virtualization, and I'm running qemu as the hypervisor with Virtual Machine Manager as the GUI to manage and create VMs. Host hardware is a Dell PowerEdge T710, with a quad core Xenon processor and four 1TB disks in a raid 6 array.
Within the Virtual Machine Manager when trying to create a new VM, there is the option to not "allocate entire virtual disk now". What format is created when you "allocate entire virtual disk now" and when you don't?
I want to create a qcow2 image format, but it doesn't look like it is supported. Does anybody know how to create a VM with a qcow2 image format?
When you create a blank disk with "qemu-img create -f qcow2 disk.qcow2 3700G", it indeed does create a qcow2 image. However, Virtual Machine Manager is unable to read these images, claiming that it is 15 megs or so in size (which is what it actually occupies in host disk space until you try and put a VM into it).
I've been unable to boot into x using the real-time kernel from CCRMA at home. I get the error "Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error,0) no drivers available. I'm using the driver from Nvidia. I know that this is not an official Fedora kernel and I should be bothering CCRMA about this, but in the mean time could I edit the entry in grub.conf so that it will use the Nouveau driver for that kernel only? That way I could "dual-boot", and just use the rt kernel when I want to use audio software and don't need 3d graphics.
So I have been trying to install these drivers forever and after going through a million forum posts and Google searches I have been unsuccessful. The process I have been trying starts as such: I hit ctrl-alt-f1 and then login as root. i then change to run level 3 by doing /sbin/init 3. After that's done I cd to desktop and do sh NVIDIA-LINUX-x86-185.18.29-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path /usr/src/kernel/2.6.18-128.2.1.el15-i686
If I don't give it the source path it can't find the source tree. Eventually I get the error: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from
I have an Intel server, which has it's two SATA HDD's in "Intel Embedded Server RAID Technology 5.4" RAID1 volume. How to proceed with a system image in case two of those SATA HDD's fail at the same time? Should one take the first HDD of RAID1 volume, connect it to another machine and execute:
# ddrescue /dev/sda1 /media/External/image_of_first_hdd /media/External/log_of_first_hdd * HDD from the problematic RAID1 volume would be recognised as /dev/sda1 behind new machine * /media/External/ is a mount point for large external HDD in the new machine * log_of_first_hdd would be the log file
..and then take the second HDD to another machine and execute:
I am interested in using fortran and an external library called matio used to save arrays to matlab .mat files.

I'vd a problem with loading modules. Booting gives the this error:
Code: Select alllucas@debian8-1:~$ systemctl --failed UNIT LOAD ACTIVE SUB DESCRIPTION ● systemd-modules-load.service loaded failed failed Load Kernel Modules
LOAD = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded. ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB. SUB = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type.
Always the same error when booting. After a period of time, (Graphical User Interface) the mouse click no longer operates, also text input isn't possible.
I had no access to the system at all, even crt alt F1 stopped working, also text input was no't possible. so reinstall was the only option. Maybe there is a connection with this two errors.
I've reinstalled Debian 8 several times. Still, both errors stay.
The same happend again (in the GUI) is nothing possible, no txt input, no mouse click), but now I have access to the system, ctr/alt F1 is working.
I'd like openSUSE to automatically load a kernel module (e.g. libsas) at boot time even no device requires it. In Ubuntu, you would add the module name to the file /etc/modules. Is this the correct place for openSUSE as well?
xubuntu 9.10 I have a Drobo, sort of RAID storage device. It makes use of volumes of 2TB. Only the first volume (LUN) is shown up. According this information;[URL]... that happens if the scsi_mod kernel module is not loaded.
i installed firefox 4 and removed the old 3.X version. did a general update that my computer showed me was available then i noticed the first problem. firefox 4 would not launch when i clicked it, it would only launch when i clicked the gnome 3 applications button and then clicked and dragged the firefox logo to the desktop, then it opened. the second problem i am now having which at the moment is more bothersome is that after i closed the lid to my laptop and opened it up again after a while and logged back in and noticed that the ENTIRE gnome 3 environment was gone. no panel no menu nothing just the desktop and a few desktop icons. i tried the command "yum install gnome-shell" but it just sed that gnome 2.31.5-7 .fc14.i686 was already installed so it wasnt gonna do anything, then i tried the "gnome-shell --replace" command and it just said
failed to load "canberra-gtk-module": libcanberra-gtk-module no such file or directory.
I built a kernel-module for a new usb wifi-card. This worked well and resulted in a 8821au.ko-file. But now I'm trying to load this kernel module since half an hour and it doesn't work. I copied the ko-file into /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/edimax. If I just type
Code: Select allsudo modprobe 8821au
I get a
Code: Select allmodprobe: FATAL: Module 8821au not found..
But if I enter the full path inside the /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64-folder:
to /etc/modules but this also doesn't seem to work. When booting I get an error-message, but it's too fast to read it and I can't find the right log-file, where the booting-part with the "[ OK ]"-messages is reported.
So my driver is ready, the onliest thing which I can't get working is loading it as a kernel-module.
im trying to install the driver for my nvidia GeForce 7300 GS.i have Fedora 12 installed in an Intel duo core 2 processor 64 bits.kernel installed is 22.214.171.124-127.fc12.x86_64...i followed leigh's guide i did the 4 steps but after reboot screen goes blanck and X dont work.the log says:
-> Kernel module load error: insmod inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko' -1 no such device
I have just reinstalled OS 11.2 but this time the 64bit system variant. I installed the real-time kernel and saw that the apparmor module reported an error and wasn't loaded. I have never looked into apparmor and only knows it has something to do with security, and thus I wonder if it is important to do something with this issue? I plan to use the kernel-rt and have more or less always used a variant of this kernel flavour, often self built. Though I can not recall having seen that error before and I have not used a 64bit system before
My nvidia graphics driver was updated last night, and since then I've been unable to get into Gnome without resorting to low graphics mode. I have extensive knowledge of Windoze systems. Upon boot up, I get the following error:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load NVIDIA kernel module! (EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting *** (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
I've tried some troubleshooting, including attempting to uninstall all nvidia drivers and reinstall (via synaptic).
Administration->Hardware Drivers reports that version 173 is installed loaded and active. Nvidia X Server Settings (nvidia-settings) gives me the "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server." error.
I've tried the nvidia-xconfig (both with gdm up and down) and it hasn't made any difference.
Oh, it's a GeForce 6200 wwith two Dell E193FPp monitors running on Ubuntu 10.04.
Here's my xorg.conf:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Fri Mar 12 01:42:27 PST 2010 Section "ServerLayout"
My laptop broke beyond repair recently so I am stuck on a 6 year old hp pavilion zv5000 given to me by a friend and I thought I may as well give linux a go, I have been meaning to for years. I've installed xubuntu 10.04 as I heard it is less resource intensive than normal ubuntu but have been unable to configure the nvidia graphics card. I used the hardware drivers program which installed the nvidia accelerated graphics driver 96 (which was the recommended version) and then ran sudo nvidia-xconfig as instructed and got
Code: Warning: Unable to locate/open X configuration file. New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
Which I presume means it worked correctly, but whenever I try to boot I get a message saying "failed to load nvidia kernel module", at which point I either have to restore the generic configuration or just start the session in low graphics mode. I have googled the problem and in a lot of peoples cases it seems to be linked to upgrading from a previous version whilst mine was a fresh install. I tried sudo modprode and it says the nvidia module isn't present. I tried installing the packages in synaptic which mentioned nvidia kernel modules but still no luck.
I am trying to fix my friends laptop and after the most recent upgrade she performed she got this error message when her laptop boots. Thing is that it stays frozen in that mode. I don't even see the grub boot loader. I know its the only operating system she has running on her laptop as well. The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this.
(EE) NVIDIA: failed to load the NVIDIA Kernel module. please check your (EE) NVIDIA: system's kernal log for additional error messages. (EE) failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error, 0) (EE) no drivers available She is running ubuntu 10.10
I have a loadable module, simple enough I believe it should run on any 2.6 kernel. I want to force the load and test that assumption. How can I do it?
ismod does not seem to notice the -f in 2.7 modprobe has -f but cannot locate the module.No go. So I read the manpage for modprobe which says: modprobe looks in the module directory /lib/modules/'uname -r'.So I copied MYMODULE.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.(the only directory in here) and type: modprobe -f MYMODULE.ko.Still can't locate MYMODULE.ko.I notice there are no other .ko modules in that directory; so I go in deeper to kernel/drivers/char, guessing about the char directory, and copy MYMODULE.ko there.
So I just recently got my proprietary driver working yesterday (and enjoyed too many hours of Starcraft 2 afterwards) but today after I downloaded an Update Package and rebooted, it's telling me that it "Filed to load NVIDIA kernel module".So now I'm back to square one, I had to restart in the lower graphics mode or whatever it's called prior to logging in.When I go to System - Admin - Hardware Drivers, nothing shows up and it says no proprietary drivers are in use on this system.
When I try to change the resolution under System - Preferences - Monitors (since everything is so big) I get "It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead?" I select "Yes" and I get "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."I'm a total loss here, I'm assuming something from the update package has caused everything to go haywire and I'm hoping that if/when I get this fixed I don't have to keep doing this fix every time I use the Update Manager.I'm still fairly new to this whole Ubuntu thing, so any step-by-step instructions would be appreciated
I think I know quite well what my problem is. However, I'm still too much of a newbie to know how to solve it.My problem: I no longer get a login screen on my server after I ran a yum update which updated my kernel (thank god, vnc server still works).Cause: During startup Fedora complains that it can't load the module nvidia.ko. Reason: The module doesn't match the current kernel.
For a diskfull node (the OS installed in a disk), I can use the 'insmod' command to insert a kernel module into the kernel. And after the reboot, the module is still in the kernel. I have a question here: how, when and which kernel module will be loaded in the boot up process for a diskfull node?And for the diskless node, can I use the chroot or some other ways to install the kernel modules into ramdisk, so that kernel module can work when the diskless node boot up? I think it needs certain mechanism to load the kernel like the boot up of diskfull node.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.With the last update, I have installed the kernel 2.6.32-33.And I have the message "module nvidia failed to load" in Xorg.log.0 My "current" nvidia module is 195. I have tried without success to reinstall nvidia. What I must do ? Wait for a new update of nvidia ?
I'm overall realitively new to Ubuntu 11.0.4 and I had some questions regarding this operating system. I just wanted to inform everyone, that I'm attempting to make a transition, from a life time Windows user and a current Windows 7 Ultimate user, to being a Ubuntu user.
I am becoming fedup with Windows 7, because i dislike how much system resources, it requires to run, and in addition I'm skeptical about Windows security. I had a lot of bad experiences with the Windows updates as well, so I was kind of alienated, as one can imagine. What I did like about Windows 7, is how easy it was, to configure the user group policies. I was wondering if you were able to do that in Ubuntu latest release.
I also was wondering, if it were possible, to create a hard drive image, that I can just load up, if I ever needed to reformat, like I did in Windows 7.
I am getting a strange font problem (see attached screenshot) for a user logging in over VNC Server, I am also logged in over VNC however I am no experiancing any problems... This was the case on CentOS 5.3 and on 5.4. I have tried removing the .vnc dir in the users home dir and re running vncserver so that it recreates it, I found this in the logs:
1. (nautilus:14718): Pango-WARNING **: No builtin or dynamically 2.loaded modules were found. Pango will not work correctly. 3.This probably means there was an error in the creation of: 4.'/etc/pango/pango.modules' 5. You should create this file by running pango-querymodules. 6.Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
