Fedora :: Difference Between 586 And 686 Kernels?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a fairly aged Pentium 4, RAID, desktop computer with Fed 11. I started off with the 686 PAE kernel and update it whenever the update software tells me to. Some time ago I downloaded an NVidia driver which said it needed the 586 kernel so I installed that as well.I then uninstalled the NVidia driver as it caused some minorish problems without any improvement to the graphics. The bottom line is I now have the last three 686 kernels and the last three 586 kernels, which I'm pretty sure I don't need. The machine seems to run fine whichever I use with no discerable differences.My questions are, what is the difference between the two types, which should I actually use and how do I get rid of the other. It would at the very least reduce bandwidth use when updating.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Difference Between 11.4 Stable Kernels

Jun 23, 2011

I'm wondering what the stable kernel is for opensuse 11.4 kde because I ran an update and I'm at 2.6.37~ and I remember Ubuntu is at ; is the kernel considered unstable is that why opensuse is not using it yet? I just started using opensuse KDE and I haven't used other distros/linux so thats why I'm asking.

Slackware :: 13.37 - Difference Between Huge.s And Hugemps.s Kernels?

May 26, 2011

I'm trying to decide which kernel to install in my Slackware 13.37 installation. What is the difference between huge.s and the hugemps.s kernels ? Does one do something the other does not ? I'm installing Slackware because I've read it has no Pulsemedia baked into it. I hope neither kernel has any of that stuff.

OpenSUSE Install :: Difference Between Default And Desktop Kernels?

Jan 9, 2010

Is there a description of the features and differences between the Desktop and Default kernels? Did "Desktop" arrive with 11.2 and 2.6.31? I did not notice it at first. I loaded 11.2 on a desktop machine and both default and desktop kernels were loaded to system, with Desktop set as default in grub. I have been working thru several "strange" behaviors ever since loading 11.2. At the top of my list has been the ability to shutdown the system from remote logins. I normally connect to the system via a Xwindows package (Xmanager). X works fine and I could shutdown via the GUI (Application Launcher - Leave-Shutdown).

When connected via a remote ssh link, either from a windows machine or a different linux machine, attempts to shutdown (shutdown -H now) send the expected messages, close the remote connections but leave the system still powered on but in a no-remote-connectivity state. When I upgraded to KDE 4.3.4 following the Forum Repository guidelines, I could no longer shutdown via the GUI. In searching about, I found that the Desktop kernel was running. Changed grub, rebooted under default, shutdown under GUI works again. So, for starters, I am trying to decide which kernel environment (default or desktop) should be my target for continuing to work thru issues.

Fedora :: How Do Releases Map To Kernels

Jan 14, 2010

My MythTV system is running under F12. It is in "appliance mode;" all configured and happily doing the PVR thing without a pressing need for upgrades.However, there is a feature in the upcoming 2.6.32 kernel that I'd like to take advantage of; internal support for a certain capture card.

I see 2.6.32 mentioned as part of the F13 release. My question is, will it also be available for F12 . . . maybe sooner than the F13 release?Another way to put this is: How wedded are Fx releases and kernel releases? Is a major kernel goalpost like 2.6.32 the reason why Fx releases are made?

Fedora :: Old Kernels Not Appearing With YUMEX?

Dec 2, 2009

I have 3 kernels installed. When I look at my installed kernels with yumex or package kit all I see is the latest kernel. rpm -qa lists them and I was able to remove the oldest using rpm -e.Is this some new feature of YUMEX and package kit to only show the latest version installed?

Fedora ::automatically Add New Kernels To Grub ?

Feb 17, 2010

I'm sure there is a thread on this somewhere, but after looking though the first 100+ search results, I can't seem to find it.

After a kernel update today, I noticed that new kernels are not being added to my grub menu.lst (so consequently, I was running an older kernel).

Any obvious reason why this would happen (kernels being installed normally, with yum update)? I thought the whole process was supposed to be automagic.

Would it have anything to do with the fact that I just kept my F11 menu.lst, and added a F12 kernel to it when I installed F12 (to a separate partition), then eventually (today, finally) removed the f11 kernels from it?

Here's my menu.lst, in case it's useful:

Fedora :: No Initrd With Kernels Newer Than

Jun 5, 2011

I'm running FC 13. I believe that the base install is kernel That is the last version of the kernel that I have installed that includes an initramfs file. Neither nor installed an initramfs file. Since my root volume is in LVM, I can't boot with those kernels. I saw in another post that doing a "yum install kernel" would install the missing files. I tried that and it tells me that kernel- is already installed and latest version.

I ultimately want to upgrade to FC 15 because I've got a new nVidia video card and need driver 270.41.06 for fc15. My fear is that if I upgrade I might not get the initramfs files in the new versions of FC and end up with an unusable system. Is there a way to add the initramfs files for the newer kernels and/or will I have the files after an upgrade?

Fedora :: Suspend/resume Not Working For Kernels After 2.6.29?

Aug 24, 2009

Starting with kernels 2.6.29.x and above (which includes 2.6.30.x and 2.6.31.x),whether obtained from "kernel.org" of from the "FC11 repository", none of theseresume properly after putting the computer to sleep (suspend)... in my case, via"pm-suspend".When I press the "On" button, I hear the fan, but get no video. And the fan neverreturns to the normal resumed, slower speed -- which it normally does after aroper resume.Eventually I have to issue "Ctrl + Alt + Delete" to reboot. So the computeris resumed to some degree (to have been able to accept that sequence), butnot all the way - no video (and who knows what else)Any ideas -- I've searched high and low. Are there new kernel parametersI have to be aware of when I do a "make oldconfig", and go from there?

Fedora Hardware :: Kernels Hanging On The Bootup?

Mar 16, 2010

When I went to start up the computer, the kernel usually hung at the same place on boot up, although sometimes it booted just fine. The default kernel is It's boot up arguments are:


kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=75d16864-ba74-49ef-aaa9-0a1dd3c92254 noiswmd LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet rdblacklist=nouveau

I also have kernel,, I have seen the same behavior out of all four of them. Last night I ran Memtest86+ all night. It took eight passes with no memory errors. As far as hard disks go, I have two Seagate Barracuda 1.5 TB drives operating as software RAID 1 (mirroring). One of the drives does have three bad sectors. The motherboard is an Asus P6T6 WS. This morning I plugged in the GP diagnostic chip that came with it, but I'm not seeing a whole lot useful there, except that now it is just displaying "FF" non stop.

I did some poking around on the web, and it looks like "FF" is supposed to mean that the CPU isn't properly seated, which makes no sense because the system monitor software is detecting all four cores perfectly, and I have no other odd behaviors anywhere else. At this point I'm rather at a loss to understand what could be causing the difficulties. Sometimes any of the four kernels boots fine, and sometimes they don't. The funny thing is that on the blue "boot progress bar" all four kernels hang at exactly the same spot if they hang at all. After doing some more poking around, I'm relatively sure that "FF" does NOT mean that the processor isn't seated correctly. I'm going to try contacting Asus and see how far I get towards getting some good info on what the diagnostic codes mean.

Fedora :: Kernels From 2.6.28 Onwards Will Not Recognize Sound Card

Jun 5, 2010

Fedora-13 will not play sound. It's definitely a kernel issue and I am not the only one from what I read elsewhere. Prior to kernel 2.6.28 audio works on this Samsung Q1 Tablet PC. Any kernels from 2.6.28 onwards will not recognize my sound card and therefore won't play sound no matter what. I've proved it running different livecds (Suse, Mandriva, PCLOS, etc.) with kernels 2.6.25, 2.6.27, etc., all with audio. How can I use/import a suitable kernel for Fedora-13 so that it will recognize my sound card (driver snd-hda-intel) on this Q1?

Fedora :: Any Way To Update Kernels Of Lower Version Number

Apr 29, 2011

I have a system with one 2.6.35 kernel, one 2.6.38 kernel I built from a koji src rpm and 1 rawhide 2.6.39 kernel I installed directly with yum. Now that a newer 2.6.35 is out, I'd like to yum update my 2.6.35 kernel so I'll have those two in the 2.6.35 range. But the problem is those newer kernels (38 and 39) make yum think there's no update that's available because they have higher version numbers than the new kernel. Is there someway I can make yum update to anyway? I was thinking I could download the kernel and kernel-devel rpm files for and do the yum install for them off the hard drive, would that work?

General :: Distributions Like Ubuntu And Fedora Costomize Their Own Kernels?

Aug 14, 2010

As I was trying to do some patching on Ubuntu's kernel I've found out kernel.org's patches cannot be merged correctly with the kernel source. I'm wondering if distributions like Ubuntu have their own kernels different from official ones?

Another thing that I think could be related to this question is the name of the directory of source tree in Ubuntu that is linux-headers-2.6.31-21. What does that 21 stand for? Also there is a directory named linux-headers-2.6.31-21-generic. What's the difference between these two?

Oct 11, 2009

I would like to try the rawhide updates. If messed up my PC's couple of times so now before I do anything I would like to roll back changes and resort to last working kernel ( and related s/w) in case that fails . HOW do I do it? ( c.f Windows Last good session ) ALTERNATIVELY folks - is there a way you can backup and restore to full accuracy all your previous kernels .- I mean just inset the CD .It will identify the partitions , then it will ask you "where you want to restore them" and then it just restores the prev. image.

Fedora Networking :: What Is The Difference Between Wireless-N And -G?

Mar 19, 2010

The other day my 7 year old Belkin-G router packed up and I had to buy a new one. I purchased a ZyGEX wireless-N router that claims to be capable of 300mbs communication on my home network. I have five computers networked and on each of them the network speed is only 5 or 6 mps. The reason I ask this question is while I was only getting 54mps speed with my old router, it was much faster than this one.

I also am asking if anyone knows if the adapter on the laptop or desktop not being compatible with wireless-N could be causing this. Is there anyway to increase network speed in such a situation. I might mention that I am only talking about the speed within my home network, not the broadband download and upload speeds (which is also crap, but not related to this case.)
