Fedora :: Chance To Be Able To Switch From A 32 Bit Kernel To 64 Bit Kernel During The Update?

Jul 18, 2010

From F12 to F13. Is there anything I should remove before updating? I have few programs isntalled from source/binary installers in /usr for example. Would it cause problems?

And is there any chance to be able to switch from a 32 bit kernel to 64 bit kernel during the update? The hardware is capable of this.

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.

Ubuntu :: Update For A New Kernel, But Kernel Version Hasn't Changed

Jan 7, 2010

At the moment I am using kernel 2.6.31-14-generic. I'm not one of those people who needs to have the latest and greatest kernel to be happy, I just rely on the update manager. I swore that I saw an update for a new kernel, but my kernel version hasn't changed. I'm just curious if there was a new kernel that was released or if that was just an update to the kernel listed above.

CentOS 5 :: How To Prevent Kernel Upgrade On Reboot After Yum Update Kernel*

May 29, 2010

The server runs# uname -r2.6.18-128.4.1.el5However, today I executed yum update kernel*due to security advisory. I was just about to reboot the system when I realized that it runs VMWare Server Instance that will most likely fail to restart after kernel upgrade (I had a hard time fixing it after previous kernel update). Now I want to keep 2.6.18-128.4.1.el5 after reboot.I see that new kernel is scheduled for booting:

Fedora :: Switch From The I686 Kernel To I386 Without Reinstalling The System?

Aug 2, 2011

One of our F14 machines was originally set-up with the i386 Kernel. I found out it had a kernel crash and the person tried to fix it by reinstalling the kernel, unfortunately they installed i686. Now some of our software that was setup to work with i386 is not cooperating. Is there a way to switch from the i686 kernel to i386 without reinstalling the system?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Update On 9.04 To Kernel No Nvidia?

Feb 5, 2010

9.04 this morning updated my kernel to I believe it is 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.

Fedora :: Yum Won't Update Kernel In F12

I am receiving a transaction error when I try to update to a newer kernel, the error is:
Test Transaction Errors: installing package kernel-debug- needs 519KB on the /boot filesystem If I run disk usage I get:

System monitor shows I have 56% free in /boot. So where can I get the extra free space or force yum to recognize there is enough in that directory?

Fedora :: Yum Update All Except Kernel?

Nov 2, 2010

I'm using F13 and I would like to update my computer using yum update.

I did this a few weeks ago and yum update downloaded and installed


kernel i686

After a reboot I got


Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

To get around this I did a ctrl + s and booted to an earlier kernel. Once in I deleted the latest kernel using


rpm -q kernel

to list the available kernels and


rpm -e kernel-version

to delete the latest kernel. Once deleted my computer starts up perfectly.

How do I run yum update without reinstalling the bad kernel?

Fedora :: Can't Update To A New Kernel

Apr 30, 2011

I do not understand this problem. I am using kernel and while that works fine I know new kernels makes things work better. As such, every time a kernel update comes along just like all other updates, I perform a yum update. But for some unknown reason, I am successfully updating everything except the kernel.

I have attempted updates with, 88, and 12-90 and at the very beginning of the boot I always get the same panic error and boot freeze. The message is ALWAYS as foolow. The only part of the message that changes is the kernel numbers.

[I did my best at hand writing the error message.]

I hope this makes sense to someone.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/init" , line 157 , in <modules>
if _name_ == ' _main_ ' : main()


Does any of the above make any sense?? I cannot even figure how I am supposed to fix anything since the computer completely freezes at that point! I am, of course, able to hard reboot. The I switch back to the previous kernel and everything is fine but why does everything EXCEPT the kernel update?

Fedora :: Keep More Than 3 Versions Of Kernel After Update?

Mar 11, 2010

When yum updates the kernel it keeps the last 3 versions; the older kernels are deleted. Is there a way to keep more than 3 versions?

I presently have one working version and two which are not compatible with my machine. One more bad version and my system will be toast. (I would like to keep the "bad" versions for testing.)

Fedora :: Why Kernel Update Delay On F11

Mar 19, 2010

Last Saturday, I ran an update on my laptop using F12 and received a new kernel. As of this morning, the new kernel hasn't shown up on my desktop, using f 11. (Yes, I check every day.) Currently, my uptime is 34 days, so you can see how long it's been since the last kernel update for F11. Does anybody know why there'd be an update for one version and not for another? In case anybody's wondering:

Fedora :: Nvidea, X11 And Last Kernel Update

Jun 20, 2010

I'm using F13 64bit with the proprietary nvidea driver. From yesterday's software update, a new kernel was installed:

old kernel: vmlinuz-
old initramfs: initramfs-
new kernel: vmlinuz-
new initramfs: initramfs-

I load grub from another distro partition. After the update, I changed the two lines in menu.lst, as per the above mentioned, to match the new kernel.

The problem now is that after booting F13, my monitor displays a warning saying "video mode not supported".

These two files are now at /etc/x11:


# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display
Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"


I'm not sure if it's exactly the same issue as mine. In case it is, it looks like that all I have to do is:

1 - boot from the previous kernel, and

2 - code: "yum install akmod-nvidia"
