Fedora :: FC11 - Preupgrade - FC14 - Boot - 200MB

Jan 14, 2011

I'm planing to upgrade from FC11 to FC14 using a preupgrade. I've read about some ways to overcome the problem of my /boot partition being only 200MB in size while the newer versions require 500MB. The option of "filling the free space on the boot partition to be less than 100MB to cause preupgrade to download the loader" appeals to me. But what I don't understand is: is the 500MB requirement of the new versions is transient during the install or a permanent requirement? If I do this trick of first filling up the free space on /boot then freeing it up before the reboot, what will be the permanent disk space requirement of FC14?

Are there any safe (and prefarably simple) ways to increase the size of the /boot partition after decreasing the size of other partition? Here is the output of "df" relevant to the /dev/sda disk:

Fedora Installation :: Yum Update For FC15 After Upgrade From FC14

May 27, 2011

After doing an upgrade from FC14 to FC15, I then updated the packages by doing:
yum update yum
yum clean all
yum --releasever=15 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
I then get the following voluminous list of issues (148 pre-existing rpmdb problems). I've done an rpm --rebuilddb but no help.

Running rpm_check_debug
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
libclutter-gtk-0.10.so.0()(64bit) is needed by gthumb-2.12.3-2.fc15.x86_64
Please report this error in [URL]

Found 148 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
ImageMagick-c++- has missing requires of ImageMagick = ('0', '', '15.fc14')
akonadi-1.5.3-1.fc14.x86_64 has missing requires of libboost_program_options-mt.so.1.44.0()(64bit)
alchemist-1.0.37-8.fc12.x86_64 has missing requires of python(abi) = ('0', '2.6', None) .....
Your transaction was saved, rerun it with: yum load-transaction /tmp/yum_save_tx-2011-05-27-10-30qO4br9.yumtx

Well, it appears that downloading and installing libclutter-gtk-0.10.so.0 seemed to fix all the subsequent yum error messages, and I was able to install all the packages.

Fedora :: FC14 To FC15 Upgrade - USB 3.0 Not Working

May 29, 2011

I have used preupgrade to moved from fc14 to fc15. With fc14 I had my two usb 3.0 ports working. However, with fc15 my usb 3.0 ports are disabled. I have read the instruction at the common fc15 bugs doc and removed the kernel parameter xhci.enable=1 and also erased the file /etc/pm/config.d/xhci. Still the usb 3.0 ports are not working. I am using kernel I cannot use the since there no nvidia drivers for it.

Fedora :: FC15 Hibernate Behavior Different From FC14

Aug 31, 2011

I have just upgraded my Lenovo T61 from FC14 to FC15. Under FC14, I had the system set up to hibernate when the lid was closed. When I opened the lid, the system would automatically come out of hibernation in just a few seconds and I would be back to where I was.

Under FC15, I have also set it to hibernate when the lid closes. When I open the lid, nothing happens until I tap the power button, and then it comes out of hibernation via some kind of reboot: I see the Lenovo splash screen, then the machine beeps and goes into a wakeup routine, which takes much longer than it did under FC14.

Fedora :: Preupgrade - FC12-FC14 - Now 'Walked On' Error

Jun 29, 2011

I upgrade from FC12 to FC14 on Monday last. Yesterday, I noticed that CUPS wasn't running, so I looked at services and started it manually. The services appeared to be set to start CUPS automatically, but today again it wasn't running. Looking at messages, I now have the following 'errors' that appear to be disabling CUPS due to some form of load dependency.

Fedora Networking :: Setup A LAN With An FC14 Laptop - FC15 PC And A Windows Machine Running XP?

Jun 27, 2011

Trying to set up a LAN with an FC14 laptop, FC15 PC and a Windows machine running XP. I have SAMBA installed on both FC machines, but neither of them can see shares on each other or the XP machine. I can ping between all of them. The Windows machine sees all of the SAMBA shares.

When I attempt to Connect to Server under Places on the FC15 PC, I do not have a Windows share option to choose from as I do on the laptop, suggesting smbclient isn't configured correctly on that machine. SMB, NMB and WINBIND are installed and activated on startup on both FC machines. Although I have the Windows share option on the FC14 laptop, it will only connect with the IP address.

Firewalls and SELinux on both machines are disabled. Here are some configuration details:

rpm -qa | grep samba

Fedora Hardware :: ATI Mobility X600 (RV380 Based) Doesn't Work After Preupgrade FC13 - FC14

Nov 3, 2010

I have with the Videocard of one of my laptops. This laptop has a Mobility Radeon X600 card (RV380 based). I always had 3D hardware acceleration with mesa (at least in Fedora 12 and 13), but now it doesn't work. Boot seems normal, but reviewing the logs, I see this in the Xorg.0.log (after loading the radeon modues):


I don't have hardware acceleration, so no compositing and no gnome-shell I tried with both 7.9.1 and 7.9.2 versions of mesa-dri-driver (and its libs). The xorg-x11-drv-ati version is 6.13.1-0.3.20100705git37b348059.fc14

Fedora :: Kernel Makes The F14 Hang Constantly Without Any Hint?

Dec 26, 2010

I tried this kernel released on Dec 21th. It makes my F14 constantly suddenly freeze in GUI with no keyboard/mouse response anymore before restart. Only thing to do in this situation is press power-off button and after restart I found no hint in logs.My laptop is thinkpad t400 and I think it's a very common installation.Now I revert to older kernel and it's works quite well.

Fedora Installation :: Grub Error 18 - Cannot Boot To Win 7 With FC15

Jun 19, 2011

After installing FC15 on my computer, I cannot boot on my windows7 due to an error 18. I installed FC on 2 new partitions I created during the installation, so I guess they moved before my window's.Is there a solution to fix this without erasing my windows partition? (at worse, I'm ok with deleting my linux partitions for I haven't done anything with it yet).

Fedora Installation :: Boot Partition Option With Preupgrade?

Jun 10, 2009

I guess this is the right forum category for this. Am using the preupgrade method to go from F10 to F11.Downloading packages now. Just wondering if anybody knows if Anaconda will give me options to set up separate (ext3) partition for boot? (Since current grub won't work in the new ext4 file system scheme.)

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade And F12 - Boot Partition Is Too Small?

Nov 17, 2009

It appears that the default boot partition is too small for F12 preupgrade:[URL].. Did anyone try to see if enough space is freed by following these steps? : http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PreUpg...ace_in_.2Fboot

1. Leave only 1 kernel
2. tune2fs -r 0 /dev/xxx
3. remove /boot/efi and splash.xpm.gz

"preupgrade now requires at least 167MB" means more space could be needed, and I'm unclear if the above is sufficient.

Fedora Installation :: Boot Partition Adjustments Before Preupgrade?

Oct 18, 2010

You probably know by heart the old tale of the guy who is preupgrading for as long as he can remember and eventually finds out /boot is too small for F13. Since removing old kernels didn't free enough space, I am now considering resizing /boot to 500MB. After reading stuff around the internet I have a rough idea of how to proceed (for instance, that I will need to install GRUB on the relocated /boot, etc. etc.), but since I do not want to run unnecessary risks I would like to ask you to do a sanity check on my plans. My HD is currently laid out like this:

/dev/sda1 : 128GiB, ntfs, contains a (broken) Windows installation and some other stuff.
/dev/sda2 : 131GiB, ntfs, holds the FLAC rips of my CDs and other important space-wasting stuff.
/dev/sda3 : 196 MiB, ext3, /boot of course.

Fedora Installation :: Preupgrade - Not Enough Space In Boot Directory

Nov 8, 2010

I'm trying to run preupgrade to upgrade to fedora 14 from fedora 12 and get a message saying there is not enough space in /boot/upgrade. I've found some instructions on how to make more room in the boot directory but I get an error near the last step as I have noted below:

Method 1: Free up space
First, try to remove any kernel packages not currently in use on your system. The kernel-prune.py script can be used to identify kernels that may be safely removed. If you choose to remove additional kernels, be prepared with installation media should you be unable to return to your previously installed system.

The installer will need approximately 26M of free space in /boot. Use the following command to determine the amount of free space in the /boot partition:
df -h /boot
To identify kernels that may be safely removed, run the following from a command line:
curl -O '[URL]'
chmod a+x kernel-prune.py

Now, to actually remove the kernel versions listed by the above command, run the following as root:
# PKGS=`./kernel-prune.py`
# echo $PKGS
# yum remove $PKGS

Next, adjust the number of reserved filesystem blocks using the command tune2fs. You'll first need to identify the block device for your /boot file system. In the example below, /dev/sda1 is the block device for the /boot filesystem.
# mount | grep "/boot"
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext4 (rw)

I get this far and get the following Error:
[root@localhost ~]# mount | grep "/boot"
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
[root@localhost ~]# /dev/sda1 on /boot tupe ext3 (rw)
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
[root@localhost ~]# mount | grep "/boot" /dev/sda1 on /boot/type ext3 (rw)
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
[root@localhost ~]#

Now, adjust the number of reserved blocks for the /boot filesystem using the command tune2fs. Normally, a small amount of space on ext filesystem formatted partitions is 'reserved' and can only be used by the system administrator; this is to prevent an entirely full partition from rendering a system unbootable, and allow the administrator some space in which to work in order to clean up 'full' partitions. However, neither of this cases really applies to the /boot filesystem, so removing this reserved space is safe.
# tune2fs -r 0 /dev/sda1

Fedora Installation :: How Much Space Preupgrade Require In Boot Partition

Sep 19, 2009

I was impressed to be asked on Fedora 10 if I want to upgrade to Fedora 11 but the first time I tried I had this error:
Not enough space in /boot/upgrade to download install.img.

My boot partition is 99MB and AFAIK that is not unusual so I tried tidying up a bit, uninstalling all except 2 kernels, and now have about 80MB for whatever needs to be downloaded in /boot/upgrade. But I get the same error. I can fix this by using wired instead of wireless networking but I want to know for planning purposes (next time I create a boot partition) how much space is required?

$ ls -l /boot/upgrade
total 21594
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 18985802 2009-06-03 00:02 initrd.img
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3035056 2009-06-03 00:02 vmlinuz
Should I delete these? It looks like they might be left over from last time but I assume preupgrade knows what is junk and what isn't.

Fedora Installation :: F12 64bit On Optiplex 740 - Hang On First Boot After Install?

Feb 15, 2010

New install of Fedora 12 64-bit from DVD on an Optiplex 740 (AMD) with 8GB memory I had to use the mem= option to get the install past the EDD probe, but it seemed to install successfully. Now on boot it goes all the way through the "filling icon" progress meter, then switches to a completely black screen with an X pointer cursor that responds to mouse movement, but nothing else happens. Ctrl-Alt-F{2-5} do not switch to a console login, so the system's inaccessible.

Fedora Installation :: Cloned F11 Install Refuses To Boot (kernel Hang)?

Jun 17, 2009

I installed F11 x86 from the DVD onto one of my machines using a total of 4 partitions:

1. /boot
2. /
3. /home
4. swap

I then created an image of the first 3 partitions with fsarchiver and restored it onto a second machine (with different hardware). Grub was loaded onto the second machine as well without a problem. The new cloned install will get past grub fine but the kernel hangs. After removing 'rhgb quiet' from the boot options, I can see that the last message outputted to the console is something about the PS/2 mouse - this doesn't make sense as the mouse is working perfectly fine.

Additionally, I can still reboot using ctrl-alt-delete so the kernel/CPU must still be responsive. I have tried troubleshooting the various pieces of hardware, so I'm guessing it's something with the clone. All the cloned filesystems appear to be fully intact; the partition UUID's are all the same. I've even tried changing the UUID's both in grub and /etc/fstab to hardcoded /dev/sdaX , but this does not fix anything.

Fedora :: FC15 - Will Not Boot At All

Jul 4, 2011

Recently installed FC15 XFCE on my new hard drive in my laptop, bring it home from work and it wont boot up.

Only changes I made at work were removing the standard package manager, replacing it with yumex, and slightly changing the panels to more suit how I like to work. Other than that just a little browsing the web on work's wireless connection.

Now it will not boot at all. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+2 and the last command I see is "Started SYSV: Late init script for live image.."

Tried booting into the original kernel (rather than the updated one from when I first installed) and the writing is smaller so I can see an earlier message where it failed a process. This is relating to akmod_nvidia but I installed that a couple of days ago and have restarted a few times since without problems before.

"Starting LSB: Builds and install new kmods from akmod package failed, see 'systemct1 status akmods'service' for more details"

I do not even get a command like where I can type with Ctrl+Alt+2 to try running anything.

I tried adding "runlevel=3" to the end of the kernel line in Grub. Is that the correct way to try and force into command line?

Fedora :: Preupgrade - Not Enough Space In / Boot ( F12->13 )?

May 27, 2010

I'm not exactly sure that it goes in 'General' but hopefully it'll be alright here Anyways I'm trying to use 'preupgrade' to update my system but it's telling me I don't have enough space on /boot. I've already followed the instructions on the Fedora Wiki for removing unused Kernels and the like to try to free up more space. Here is what I have when I check the space on /boot :

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 198337 71584 126753 37% /boot
Is 126MB not enough? :s

What can I do? Should I be looking to expand the /boot partition's actual size? EDIT: I don't know if it affects anything, but I am running Fedora on an HP Mini 1000 with a 16GB SSD and have about 6.9GBs free overall.

Fedora :: F12 To F15 Stalls At Re-boot Using PreUpgrade?

May 26, 2011

I am trying to upgrade my F12 system ti F15 using the PreUgrade route. The initial package download goes Ok but on re-boot I can only access my old F12 system. df reports 44M avail in /boot which is on sdd1. Since I do have a multiboot system I checked that there was an "update" folder under "boot" and that it had the update versions of vmlinuz and initrd which it had. I edited "menu 1st" as described in the Pre-Upgrade notes setting the root entry to (hd0,0) as used for my working system and then did a re-boot. I selected the new upgrade entry in the GRUB menu but the system complained that it couldn't find a file. I have tried using root (hd3,0) but this does not work either. What am I doing wrong?
