I have just updated my kernel to version 18.104.22.168-35 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.
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.
i ran yum update which updated kernel to 22.214.171.124.174.fc12.i686.PAE. Now after logging in i get a blank white screen. With previous kernel updates i have had no such problem. Anyway, the boot messages are following:
checking for module nvidia.ko [FAILED] nvidia.ko for kernel 126.96.36.199-174.fc12.i686.PAE was not found [WARNING] The nvidia driver will not be enabled until one is found [WARNING] Driver already disabled
I'm running Fedora 13 x64 and updated the kernel to the latest version (188.8.131.52-56 to 184.108.40.206-61). 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.
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):
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.
The kernel sources are installed. Installation works properly in 220.127.116.11-32.fc15.x86_64
I seem unable to get an nvidia driver working properly after upgrading to the latest kernel with Fedora 11.Here is my laptop and its specs: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...reg_R1002_USEN[URL]I've tried both the kmod and akmod unsuccessfully. Everytime it gives me a black screen on boot, I can fix the problem by popping in the LiveCD, and changing the xorg.conf file back to the backup.Here are the errors/warnings from my boot.log file:
Code: WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. Checking for module nvidia.ko: [60G[[0;31mFAILED[0;39m]
I was trying to update the new nvidia drivers since they dont seem to work in the newer kernel, or to try to fix it but now when i run yum update I get a screen like this:
Downloading Packages: Running rpm_check_debug ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve: kernel-uname-r = 18.104.22.168-18.fc15.i686.PAE is needed by (installed) kmod-nvidia-22.214.171.124-18.fc15.i686.PAE-1:270.41.06-1.fc15.i686
9.04 this morning updated my kernel to I believe it is 126.96.36.199 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.
I just updated my kernel to kernel-188.8.131.52-191.fc11.x86_64 on my x64 system, after I reboot my machine, the Fedora loading bar comes up and finishes but then no gui comes up. I attempt to issue commands at the hanging prompt that comes up but nothing happens. I can boot into my older kernel just fine but not the updated one.
I've run today command: "sudo yum update" and I've noticed that the new kermel have been installed (184.108.40.206-174.2.3.fc12.x86_64). After that installation .. my camputer has several errors while booting and it doesn't want to start. So while booting I can see Code...
I ran the update through yum (replicated results twice) and whenever I boot to the new kernel it either freezes on the F logo or screen goes black right after f logo. No commands work whatsoever (tried em all). I can boot to an older kernel (220.127.116.11-85.fc13.x86_64). the ones that fail are: 18.104.22.168-147.fc13.x86_64 and 22.214.171.124-147.2.4.fc13.x86_64.
The Fedora error system gave me a bug report I submitted, here's what I got:
Package: kernel Latest Crash:Tue 03 Aug 2010 09:46:33 PM Command: not_applicable Reason: BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 00000000000005b8 Bug Reports:Kernel oops report was uploaded
After updating my kernel from 126.96.36.199-56.fc13.i686 to 188.8.131.52-61.fc13.i686 I can't boot anymore. The error message says: "No root device found Boot has failed, sleeping forever." I'm booting from 184.108.40.206-56.fc13.i686 now but I would like to sort this thing out. What should I do? File a bug? I never did that, so I don't know where to go.
After running update last night from 220.127.116.11-64 to 18.104.22.168-68 my laptop fails to start. Boot process goes most of the way to startup and then hangs just before login screen. Not sure what else to give as far as info.
I have recently updated my Fedora 11 installation which replaced my older 167 kernel with the newer 217 kernel. However, the 217 kernel will not boot completely. It will show the splash loading screen, and then will switch to a rapidly blinking cursor. This cursor blinks for about 5 seconds and then disappears. I can access terminals using ALT+F2, etc. I can log in to these terminals, but init commands do not complete (something about a binary handler). I'm not sure if something is conflicting with an update to X or what is wrong. The most recent kernel that I managed to get to work was Kernel 167, however I cannot find this kernel for download.

I tried to update my f12 today. In the list it showed an update for kernel-22.214.171.124-145.fc12.x86_64 It all seemed to go OK but when I restated my computer it spit up an error and wouldn't boot"Could not load /lib/modules/126.96.36.199-145.f12.x86_64/modules.dep: No such file or directory"Luckily the old kernel still works.
I do have the disk encryption set, could this be related to that? Updated my laptop today with the xx.6-145.f12.PAE kernel and now it's borked to. Same problems.12/07/2009OK today's kernel update seemedto fix the problems and now all is well, execpt for my inkscape not working problem. But I put ubuntu 9.10 in a VBox and it works. So for now that's my work around.
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.
Hello, i recently update the kernel in fedora through the GUI update manager and after restarting the new kernel wouldn't boot and i had to reboot into the old one. it freezes right after Plymouth finishes and the login screen should show up it just completely freezes, i do have proprietary nvidia drivers could it be that?
Dual Boot: Fedora 12 and XP Dell 505I've had trouble with the latest kernel update.I updated a bunch of packages recently (including Xorg and kernel), and noticed a severe flickering after the update on my center monitor (Samsung T260 - the laptop display did not exhibit the flickering behavior). I backed out all the changes and started updating package by package. After I updated the kernel (again) I rebooted and here's where the fun part is -
I no longer get anything, except the cursor. No grub menu, no grub prompt. I rebooted and ran the rescue disk and followed the procedurery and point grub at the right boot partition - see here. However (obviously or I wouldn't be posting) that failed to work. I still get a blinking cursor and dead system on boot up.
It appears that I have really messed up my machine. I was trying to get matlab working on FC 11 and I ran into libc.so.6 issues, so I put an older file libc.2.3.1.so in /lib/tls/ directory and created a symbolic link libc.so.6 to see if the application would work. Unfortunately at the same time the system did some updates and the system hung, so I ended up rebooting, but now it gets stuck at boot screen (after grub) with a kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init.I just need a way to get to the directror /lib/tls and delete the link and the older .so file I threw in there. How do I get this accomplished. I cannot get even to a shell from the boot screen.
Since doing the update which included kernel "188.8.131.52-141 fc12-i686 PAE" I can no longer boot into my usual 1280x960 desktop. I can set it using NVidia settings but even though this offers to modify xorg.conf it fails to do so. I have tried running as root and it doesn't then give an error message but when I look at xorg. conf there is no section.showing any specific screen size. It worked ok before the update. In case it is relevant the video card is a Quadro FX1400 with KDE. Also the whole program seems rather unstable since the update.
I have a problem with the kernel update to 184.108.40.206. 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?
I'm not sure what caused it, but it happened right after running 'yum update'. It may be because it installed a new kernel, and there are now two kernels listed in my grub.conf and at boot; 2.6.31 and 2.6.32. System boots through a list of things it's starting up and stalls out at ATL or ADL or ADM maybe. It hangs there for a minute or so then flickers. This happens every time at boot. It's a bit difficult to post more information since I can't get past that part of the boot process, and I can't seem to be able to skip it either. It may be worth mentioning that this is a mini-itx motherboard. Intel Atom 330 1.6, 2GB DDR2, onboard GeForce 9400m. It's a zotac ionitx-a-u. I've installed a fresh copy of Fedora 12 lxde.
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.
Finally updates are broken - I've been able to use my upgraded F12 system for some time, faithfully keeping up with f10, then f11. Just yesterday it finally broke:
Test Transaction Errors: installing package kernel-220.127.116.11-174.2.22.fc12.i686 needs 10MB on the /boot filesystem
It would appear that the most recent kernel update has broken the 10MB barrier initially set by the version I first installed (for the boot partition). Needless to say, I have quite an investment in this machine, and of course no time to back it all up and do a fresh F12 install. I am hoping someone out there can give me a bulletproof way to steal some space and expand the boot partition...
Just updated the kernel to 18.104.22.168 as requested by Update Manager, and was rebooted into low graphics mode, the nvidia kernel module failed to load.I tried installing the linux-headers-22.214.171.124 but this made no difference. This could get ugly if such an early update mucks up
I updated kernel and everything seemed ok, except HD-PVR is locking up and recording only two minutes of every show it records. So, I have gone back to my previous kernel, but it seems that X isn't starting:
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 195.36.31 Thu Jun 3 08:27:29 PDT 2010 (II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
Fatal server error:no screens found I had done a yum install kmod-nvidia for the newer kernel. I am thinking I need to get the kmod for the current kernel again (126.96.36.199-115.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Apr 30 19:46:25 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux), but am not sure how that is done?
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.
I am using DEBIAN 6.0 and I wannna update my kernel from 2.6.32 to 2.6.38. Every time, I do it but after the installation & rebooting into the new kernel it gives me error "UNABLE TO BOOT INTO THE KERNEL".
