Debian Configuration :: 4.2.2 Security Update Of Kernel

Sep 9, 2015

From the securing-debian-howto [URL] ...

"4.2.2 Security update of the kernel

First, make sure your kernel is being managed through the packaging system."

which suggests...

Code: Select all$ dpkg -S ‘readlink -f /vmlinuz‘

When I try to confirm by running the above, I get a lot of characters of output but the last line reads...

Code: Select alldpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /vmlinuz‘

How do I make sure my kernel is being managed through a packaging system?

Debian Configuration :: No Automatic Update Of The Kernel?

Nov 1, 2010

I've just installed debian sid and see that I've the kernel 2.6.32. I was a bit surprise as on ubuntu I had the 2.6.35 and debian sid is supposed to be more up to date that ubuntu (maybe I'm wrong).So I checked what were the packages available :

mart@mart-laptop:~$ uname -a
Linux mart-laptop 2.6.32-5-686-bigmem #1 SMP Sat Oct 30 23:25:58 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot After Kernel 2.6.32-24 Update

Sep 1, 2010

This morning, I booted into my administrator account and checked for updates. There were a number (bogofilter, for one) but also a update to the 2.6.32-24 kernel. I installed the updates and rebooted the system. When I rebooted, the thought occurred to me (from reading another thread) that one of the reasons my Zareason desktop boots slower than my laptop (55 seconds vs 35) was that I have an external floppy drive attached, and perhaps the delay was a difference in my system checking for a bootable floppy.

So I went into the BIOS when it was booting to check to see if the floppy was enabled (it wasn't). Then I selected "Exit without saving" and resumed booting. What happened next was instead of seeing the Ubuntu icon and the six dots, I see "Ubuntu 10.04" and four dots. Then I get on the black screen these errors (sorry for any mistyping, I wrote them down on a sheet of paper as I had no other computer available to troubleshoot):

udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uiid/939af864-c1a8-41d7-9b24-91d25685b6 does not exist. Dropping to shell
Busybox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13:3-1ubuntu11 built-in shell (ash).
Enter 'help' for built-in commands

Googling around once I got into work and had computer access, it seems that the problem is GRUB has lost track of what partition I should boot from? Here is a thread which might be relevant: [URL]. Before I left for work, I went into the BIOS again and looked at the CMOS settings--everything looked normal. I once again exited without saving anything. I was going to try selecting an earlier kernel from the GRUB menu on boot, but couldn't remember the key to press.

I found out later today, to enter GRUB 2 it's been changed to the shift key, and not the F2 key like it used to be. One poster on the aforementioned thread said his system would boot ok to the earlier kernel. The thread above has as its solution to either try to tell GRUB where your boot partition is and/or re-installing GRUB. I have /home on a separate partition, so if I need to do a re-install I can do so without it being a major pain. Sda1 is the partition which has the OS.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Kernel Update - Unable To Boot

Oct 24, 2010

I had a Centos 5.5 system working great...and then due to crazy curiosity, installed the kernel update. Did this through the graphical interface, uncheck all update other than kernel. It downloaded, installed fine..After reboot now all I get is GRUB_ and then nothing else! I waited 3-4 minutes and had to shut down system. Have been googling around but thought I will post it here as well..When I boot with Win7 and use Ext2fsd to check, the boot folder is empty. Not sure if this is because ext2fsd does not read boot folder or it got wiped out by the yum upgrade process.

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Boot New Kernel After A 'yum Update'?

Oct 26, 2010

I have recently run an update and now we are unable to boot the newer kernel. We get stuck as below;

Memory for crash kernel (0x0 to 0x0) notwithin permissible range
Red Hat nash version starting
Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol06)


The kernel version we were at was 2.6.18-194.el5 and the update move us to 2.6.18-194.17.1.el5. I've done some googleing but I'm unable to work out exactly what I need to do. I'm guessing the new kernal is missing a module?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Unable To Boot After Kernel Update

Feb 11, 2011

I am unable to boot my Fedora 14 after last nights kernel update. When I start the boot up and hit F2 the system fails after outputting the line : Starting vservers of type 'default'. At some point the console displays an error message :

serial8250 : Too much work for irq17

How do I restore my previous version? I know some people have suggested in the past - just modify the grub.conf but how? When I boot off the cd I only get access to the liveuser disk. I need to have access to my own /boot/grub/grub.conf file.

Red Hat :: RHEL4 Strange Kernel Panic On Boot - Kernel Update No Solution

Dec 31, 2008

I have the following strange thing with a RHEL4 installation. Since last week, the system did a reboot and now something is really fucked up. During boot we get the following messages (don't care about 'strange' typo's, my colleague typed it 'blind' from the screen)


The strange thing is that we never see a 'could not mount blabla' or similar messages. First we thought it was a failing kernel update by plesk, but even after manually updating the kernel with RHN RPM's, still the same message. Booting with rescue mode and then chroot the system works. After that we even can start things like plesk and so on.

We double checked things with another RHEL4 install, and at least two things were odd:

1: the working machine has /dev/dm-0 and /dev/dm-1, the broken one doesn't

2: some files on /dev didn't have group root, but 252

We tried to recreate the /dev/dm-X nodes with [vgmknodes -v], output:


A fdisk /dev/sda shows: /dev/sda2 XX XXX XXXXX Linux LVM (I removed the numbers because this line is from another machine, but rest was identical)

We have a copy of the boot partition so if one need more info please let me know.

Fedora Installation :: Xen-kernel - Unable To Boot In Normal Kernel

Debian Configuration :: New Warning After Kernel Update - Machine Failed To Get I915 Symbols

Jun 22, 2011

I do not know if this is really something I should worry about. I am running Debian testing on my laptop (HP Pavillon dv6). Today, the aptitude update---aptitude upgrade gave me a new kernel (2.6.39). However, if I boot with that kernel, I get a warning (do not know if that is the way I should call this) telling me that the machine failed to get the i915 symbols so turbo graphics will be disabled.I have not done any serious test, but at first sight I do not notice any difference performance-wise with respect to the previous kernel. what am I supposed to do to fix this?

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Failure Almost On Every Boot

Lately I'm encountering a somewhat annoying malfunction: almost every boot, my desktop is stuck, HD red led is constatnly on, and i get a message from kerneloops that I had a kernel failure. I can move the cursor a little and slowly or not at all. Few violent reboots and I get a clean boot. Running Debian Lenny kernel 2.6.26-2-686 on a Pentium 4 2.0 GHz with 250 MiB ram.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Installation Error - Conflict With PCI Bus

Oct 6, 2010

I got a new laptop the other day, repartitioned it and installed Lenny. The wireless did not work. From some searching, I decided that I have the 14e4:4727 broadcom chipset. The driver I need is partially supported by the 2.6.33 kernel. I installed squeeze and downloaded the 2.6.35-7 kernel from Then compiled it with the debian 2.6.32 kernel config file. Once it was done I installed the kernel deb files, and restarted it.

Kernel Compiled with commands
make oldconfid
make menuconfig
make-kpkg clean
fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version "-hermes" --revision "10-5-2010" --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers

[0.433831] PCI_root PNP0A03:00: address space collision : host bridge window [mem 0xafffffff-0xdfffffff] conflicts with PCI bus 000:00 [mem 0xd0000000-0xffffffff]
And it seems to hang until I manually hold the power button to shut it down.

Before I compiled my own kernel I tried to use the liquorix-2.6.35-amd64 kernel with the same result. Am I doing something incorrectly?

Computer: DELL Inspiron m5010
4g ram
phenom 2 triple core
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

I have been using linux primarily for a year or two.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Not Recognizing Boot Option ?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm running Squeeze and I've been running into the r8169 hang problem (see [url]for example). A temporary (until the driver foibles in the kernel are resolved) solution that seems to be working for many people is passing the boot option "pcie_aspm=off" to the kernel.

Apparently, either I don't understand grub2 at all or my kernel doesn't like me very much. I put the option in grub.cfg like so:

However, it appears that the kernel, for whatever reason, is either not being given this boot option or it's not interpreting it correctly. When I run lspci -vv I get this for my r8169 ethernet card:

The relevant section is LnkCtl:ASPM L0s L1 Enabled; indicating that ASPM is still on.

Debian Configuration :: No Boot Without Attached Monitor Kernel 2.6.32-5-686

Jul 10, 2011

since upgrading the squeeze kernel from 2.6.26-2-686 to 2.6.32-5-686 Ive been unable to boot my HP D510S/845G without attached monitor. As this computer serves as router and print/faxserver, there is/was neither a monitor nor a keyboard/mouse attached. With monitor everything works fine, without monitor the computer hangs somewhere. Unfortunately it hangs without logging anything in /var/log.

Reinstalling xorg and xserver-xorg didnt change anything, neither was the new xorg.conf from dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg of any use. (After booting with attached monitor I disconnected the monitor and ran dpkg-reconfigure) Maybe disabling Xorg would solve the problem, but I want to be able to log in via vnc and use a GUI - for example to configure mythtv. Up to the kernel-update everything was working fine, so I think some changes to the new kernel are responsible. how to fix it or how to start logging earlier in the boot process?

Debian Configuration :: Boot Hangs With 4.2.6 Static Kernel And Encrypted LVM

Dec 7, 2015

I use a static compiled kernel and a fully encrypted disk apart from a boot partition. I have recompiled and installed kernels many times. When I tried with the latest kernel from Testing, 4.2.6, the system will not boot. Not only that but the previous kernel now does not boot. However, a stock modular kernel does boot. The static kernel hangs at:

Code: Select allVolume group "dk" not found
Cannot process volume group dk
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory
WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory

[Code] ....

And after giving the password the boot continues successfully. How to diagnose it further?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Boot Xen/dom0 In Squeeze With 2.6.32 Pvops Kernel?

Debian Configuration :: Installing Specific Kernel As Boot Option?

Jul 29, 2011

I need to install any version of Debian with the Debian Kernel version 2.6.22-3-686. I don't mind what version of Debian it is, I just need it to have this specific kernel! Debian Etch comes with 2.6.18-4-686 and Lenny comes with 2.6.26-2-686 so the kernel I need is obviously somewhere in between.

I have tried using the following commands to see if kernel 2.6.22-3-686 is available for download via the apt-get method in both Debian Etch and Lenny but it is not...

apt-cache search linux-kernel
apt-cache search linux-source

So does anyone know where/how I can download specific kernels and install them for use? I have a computer sitting next to me that has multiple kernels as an option on boot, and they all boot into the same system, however I do not know the person who set up the computer so cannot ask them how they did it

Debian Configuration :: Boot Kernel Panic After Upgrade To Backport 2.6.39

Aug 21, 2011

I am running Debian squeeze. A while ago I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.38 from backports. Just now I thought it would be good to upgrade to 2.6.39 from backports. Upgrade went fine, but after rebooting I get a kernel panics rightaway.

"No filesystem could mount root, tried:"
"Kernel panics = not syncing: VFA: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(0,0)."

This is the first time one of Linux installations halts/panics on booting, so I don't know what to do now. I tried booting the recovery entry from the grub boot menu, but same result.

I did the 3rd suggestion on that file to load the module in /etc/modules cheers.
