Not wanting to speculate why, in the repositories, Fedora doesn't *also* provide a on-KVM enabled kernel counterpart to the default KVM enabled kernel that *is* supplied, I must say I'm frustrated that they haven't done this simple thing.
Considering that everyone who upgrades to KVM enabled FC12 from a previous non-KVM release of Fedora (like FC10) ... considering that these people will be guaranteed to no
longer be able to run VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation after upgrading, is a disappointing oversight by / or intent of Fedora (one that manifests in *lost productivity*).
And try though you may to install the kernel source RPM and compile it after running "make xconfig" to disable KVM support, you usually can't! Fedora kernel compile attempts often die very early in the "make" process, indicating something like ...
"Kernel compile error: No rule to make target `missing-syscalls'
or some other silliness. And when you successfully compile a "kernel.org" kernel, and try to boot it, you get all kinds of missing library errors (etc).
Given that it would be simple to provide both a KVM enabled kernel (as they do), and also a non-KVM enabled kernel (which they don't) so the rest of us can seamlessly continue to run VirtualBox and/or VMWare Workstation after an upgrade - and avoid getting entangled with deciding whether use KVM or XEN for guest O/S's... it's a frustrating misstep to not have done this basic thing (i.e. include a non-KVM kernel). It was a rude awakening when we tried to launch VirtualBox only to have it fail after the upgrade.
Anyway, has anyone successfully compiled their own kernel for FC12 and not get errors after boot? If so, which sources did you use; and what kernel version? In the meantime I'll try out other kernels and compile options.
my problem is on installing nvidia driver on fc12 32bit but, first of all, as i understood the pae kernel requires more than 4gb of ram,i have a 2.2 ghz cpu with 2 gb ram,but when i run command:uname -r it answers: 22.214.171.124-127.PAE [i have fc12 32 bit] when we try to download linux we have a 32bit edition or 64bit edition,do we have an edition which is only for pae? or when we install for example the 32bit edition on a computer with more than 4gb of ram then the kernel automatically will change to be a pae kernel??
I just upgraded to Fedora 12 x86_64 via yum upgrade. However I have problems with booting. The new FC12 kernel won't boot. Boot output is something like
Code: ERROR: sil: RAID type 253 not supported ERROR: adding /dev/sda to RAID set "sil_ajabaccaaidg ERROR: sil: RAID type 253 not supported ERROR: adding /dev/sdb to RAID set "sil_ajabaccaaihe No root device found Boot has failed
I resized boot partition to 400MB, formatted it as ext4 and recopied all files, modified fstab to update boot partition's UUID. Tried to set a boot flag on boot, still, I can only boot with the old kernel from Fedora 11. Is it a Fedora 12 kernel's bug or something wrong with my setup? I don't use any RAID, and the sil error is present with Fedora 11 kernel also.
Having just updated various files including the kernel using Package Manager I no longer seem to have the correct version of the Nvidia graphics driver. On previous updates this has been done automatically by the "kmod Nvidia" Metapackage. My last kernel was 126.96.36.199-163 fc12.i686.PAE and the Nvidia driver for that did get downloaded correctly. Looking on Yumex I cannot see a driver for this latest kernel listed.
I have some programs, that will only install on i586 architecture (opposed to x86_64). My CPU is 64-bit architecture. Can I install FC12/11 with i586 kernel on the hardware? How? Any disadvantages except the fact that I'm supposedly not able to use the 64-bit feature of the CPU?
I have an issue with kernel-188.8.131.52-174.fc12.x86_64. I ran the updates on Christmas Eve and it updated from kernel-184.108.40.206-166.fc12.x86_64 to kernel-220.127.116.11-174.fc12.x86_64. When I rebooted, I no longer received the Fedora Bubble boot screen. It comes up with the Fedora boot bar (across the bottom). Also, I receive failures during boot with the following:
Forgive me if I have posted this in the wrong forum, first time poster with Fedora. I have been using Linux for some time now, mostly Mint, but Fedora 12 @ work. Anyway, I receive the following error in my /var/log/boot.log:
Code: nvidia.ko for kernel 18.104.22.168-70.fc12.i686 was not found and the driver does not load (My xorg.conf file is not loaded), but once I am at a
I am having a problem with lockups on a new FC12 box (dual core 3 ghz, 4 gb memory,nvidia 8400gs). This happens reliably when replaying MythTV videos, but also randomly at other times using other apps (I suspect also boot but I can't be sure; it just occasionally stalls part way through the boot display).
Usually but not always this is accompanied by a kernel panic (caps lock + scroll lock lights flash on keyboard).
I did a core dump with kdump and it reports: Thread 1 (<main task>): Cannot access memory at address 0xffff880028025b70I am in the process of running memtest86+ right now. It's been through several passes without errors. I'm going to let it run some more, but if that is dependable it's looking like the RAM sticks are not the problem.
I had fedora 12 installed on a Macbook pro Intel first generation with ATI Radeon graphics card (see the attachment). Compiz crash when trying to watch *.wmv movie codified with wmvvc1dmo on kernel-PAE-22.214.171.124-67.fc12.i686. I want to convert the film to *.mpg, then I download the mplayer codecs in order to see the film, I can do it without problems with the on kernel-PAE-126.96.36.199-174.2.22.fc12.i686. But I updated my system last Saturday and when I was trying to see the movie again the computer began to respond really slow, then I began to close applications and when I tried to restart I got the message: "compiz is not responding".
I tried again but the same problem. Other thing that I noticed is that when the computer go to sleep, when I wake up it, the display show horizontal black spikes, it is like it doesn't have the appropriate refreshing rate. I think that the problem is related with the acceleration on graphic card. Yesterday, I booted on kernel-PAE-188.8.131.52-174.2.22.fc12.i686, and I watched the film, and the wake up was without problems. That is the reason I call it a regression.
kernel-184.108.40.206-90.fc12 seems to break 802.11n with my intel 4965 chip on my thinkpad t61p. Anyone else seeing the same thing? iwconfig shows extremely low bit rate. dmesg doesn't show anything at all unusual.
I had FC10 working nicely but decided to move to FC12 to be able to use the latest and greatest... Turning out to be nightmare!
My HDD is partitioned into three:
(hd0, 0) 100MB : used to be original /boot for FC 10 (hd0, 1) 120GB : /home (hd0, 2) 30GB : / > First thing tried: preupgrade
Using this preupgrade setup happend and asked to reboot. However, upton reboot got locked in stage2. So this option was abondoned.
> Second thing tried: installation CDs
Using this method formatted (hd0,2) and installed FC12 on (hd0,2). However, did not change anything on (hd0,0). This still held all the upgrade information from the previous trial. Now, when I rebooted after the install there was a kernel panic with error "kernel panic not syncing vfs". Thinking it might due to the (hd0,0) partition and errors in my install, I abandoned this.
> Third thing tried: installation CDs
Using this method I formatted both (hd0,0) and (hd0,2). The install was similar to above but now (hd0,0) was also formatted and after install was empty. But upton reboot I still got the "kernel panic not syncing vfs" message. I dug through google and saw references to problems in grub.conf and lo behold there were problems with my grub.conf. I don't see the initrd line at all nor do I see the initrd*.img file in my disk. The grub.conf is:
I have a tricky problem which I could soIve with a c program. I wrote one and found I didnt have gcc so I tried to install it. I was told I needed to install packages. I acknowledged and an error was generated gcc-4.4.2-7.fc12.i686 requires libgomp = 4.4.2-7.fc12 I try to install libgomp and go round again.
I have a problem with PAE kernel sources and builing nvidia driver. uname -a returns Linux myX 220.127.116.11-174.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SMP Mon Jan 18 20:06:44 UTC 2010 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
1. I run ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run and I get an error message that kernel sources cannot be found.
2. My folders: /lib/modules had these two subfolders 18.104.22.168-127.fc12.i686.PAE 22.214.171.124-74.2.3.fc12.i686.PAE so what I did, I run: yum install kernel and got inside /lib/modules this extra 3rd subfolder (no PAE) 126.96.36.199-174.2.3.fc12.i686 On the other hand /usr/src/kernels has one subdirectory (no PAE): 188.8.131.52-174.2.3.fc12.i686
3. Now, when I build nvidia driver, it still gives me the error, that no sources found, so I do ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path /usr/src/kernels/184.108.40.206-174.2.3.fc12.i686 and get an error that this seems to be the incorrect version. And I guess this is true as I have no PAE sources.
when ever i try to install updates i get shown an error & the updates stop the error i get says "librpmio.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates) librpm.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates)"
I recently upgraded my CPU (just before the release of FC12), to a 64-bit compatible Intel Core 2 E7600. Upon the release of FC12 I moved to the 64 bit version (via a clean install).
I noticed that NVIDIA does not work (as many topics on this forum confirm). So I reinstalled and used the FC12 default drivers (I think they are called Nouveau-drivers). This seemed to work, so I ran "yum update", and now all X-windows fail.
KDE complaints: "kstartup4 does not exist or fails" and GNOME also complains (sorry forgot the exact error message)
I'd be happy to send logs, but if these are required, which log you want and where I can find it.
how to get or KDE or GNOME running ? (preferably KDE)

It was a long time since my last post on this forum. The reason for this was that since FC7 I've moved to Debian Etch and then to Ubuntu, but now I'm back trying FC12 amd64 on my machine and seen how it changed.Almost everything is going well until now. After almost two years I see that a great development was made to build and gui to yum, but synaptic is still superior, imho.
Well, as I said, everything is going well with one exception: the *.tar.gz files. Doesn't matter if I use the gui or the cli. If I try to compress or decompress any file to tar.gz it fails with the error message bellow. All other file types work perfectly.
/bin/gtar: Child returned status 1 /bin/gtar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
As I said, I'm running FC12 amd64. Gnome environment.
I have just installed fc12, and everything seemed to go well. After reboot I get a line asking for First login:From what I've found, this should be the firstboot thing, but I don't know the login, and can't find any answer with a search.
is it me, or is the rapidsvn in FC12 have no menu?I cant find anyway to do "file > edit > preferences", theres no menu bar at all.I've used rapidsvn since FC8 and this is the first time I cant find the menubar lol.
I install CentOS 5.4 on a customer's workstation. They out-of-date nature of Enterprise is not at all working out for him. Since Enterprise is essentially FC6, is it possible to just upgrade him to FC12, or am I looking at a wipe and reinstall?
