Fedora :: Install An Older Kernel - Custom - But RPM Wont Let ?

Mar 3, 2010

I am building a series of custom kernels...for one of them i am using a kernel that is older than my currently installed ones.

I am using rpm to install this kernel and it will not install, period. i don't get why i can't install this....what does it matter that i am installing an older kernel? and why is fedora/rpm designed to not let me do this?

Code:

There should be an easy way to get around this, but i haven't figured it out yet. i've googled around, no luck. i bounce between kernel versions all the time without problems on my system, so why is rpm setup for strict versions on a kernel? and is there no way around this, and i just have to delete all three of those kernels, i don't really want to. 2 of them are awesome and i shouldn't have to build them again, that would be complete crap! and i wouldn't have this problem on my debian setup, so why fedora? (i generally think fedora is better)

Fedora :: How To Install Older Kernel

Feb 13, 2010

How can I install older fedora kernel? Because I accidentally removed the working kernel among three kernels. I've tried yum install kernel-2.6.30.10-105.2.4.fc11.i586 but fails.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Install An Older Kernel As Recent Kernel Is Not Compatible?

Feb 11, 2010

A few days ago yast did update my computer to a new kernel-desktop 2.6.31.12-0.1.1.

My mainboard is an ASUS P4P800-VM with Intel ICH5 chipset. This new kernel is not able, to poweroff my computer. Older kernels were able to poweroff the computer.

How can I roll back to the older kernel? Yast does only offer the recent kernel.

In /boot there are only files of the recent kernel.

ASUS P4P800
Intel Pentium 4 HT, 3000 MHz, Frontside 800 MHz/Cache 1 MB
3 GB Ram
AGP nVidia 7600GS/512 MB, nVidia driver 190.53, installed from yast.
PCI WLan TP-Link 951N (Atheros chipset, WLan N, driver ath9 was automatically installed)

OpenSUSE Install :: Keeping An Older Kernel

Feb 4, 2010

I used to keep a back level kernel on all my systems along with the latest upgraded kernel. How is that done using Yast/zypper? I don't see an option to keep the older version.

Ubuntu :: Install An Older Kernel In Maverick?

Nov 13, 2010

I'm looking to install an older kernel in Maverick - something like 2.6.32 maybe? Just wondering if there's a way to do it without compiling myself. I upgraded my system without checking everything. I use it as a MythTV box and the 2.6.35 kernel breaks my remote control in a manner that appears to be unfixable at the moment, if the forums on the problem are right. I figure an older kernel will get me out of the jam, but I'm not sure how to go about it (there aren't any in the standard repos).

Ubuntu Installation :: Way To Install An Older Version Of Kernel

Apr 30, 2011

Is there any legal way to install an older version of linux-kernel (say 2.6.35) on 11.04? By legal I mean - no source-compiling and third-party repo adding.

Fedora Installation :: Using Older Kernel On F13?

Jul 15, 2010

My company offers Linux preloads in RHEL, Fedora and Ubuntu. I have Fedora 13 installed on my laptop. I want to install it on a desktop but the 2.6.33 kernel hangs the desktop when the Fedora 13 or Ubuntu Lucid DVD boots. I have the Ubuntu Jaunty preload on the desktop but would prefer Fedora. The preload includes a few apps for my job that aren't included with Ubuntu. Is it possible to select an older kernel to boot to and/or use that during the install? I think it is the SCSI controller causing this. I have the same model machine at home configured the same way except the onboard SCSI is disabled, I am using SATA drives in it.

Fedora Installation :: Erratic Install Results W/initrd - Custom Spins With Custom Drivers - Modules?

Dec 28, 2009

Just spent three whole days barking up the wrong tree, solving Fedora 11 and Fedora 12 boot failures because the correct hypothesis was illogical: installation did not update/modify the initrd.

The first couple of times I installed Fedora 11 on the HighPoint Technologies RocketRaid 2640x4, the installation inserted my "custom" driver module (rr26xx) into the initrd, permanently, so that the system booted off the controller card for which the custom driver was inserted. (I yelled about this success in this thread: [url]

My most recent installs of BOTH F11 and F12 on the RocketRaid failed to properly set up the boot. It turns out that the "rr2640" module I "slipstreamed" into the installation process was *NOT* permanently added to the initrd by anaconda. (F12 gave me "no root device found boot has failed, sleeping forever", on boot; F11 hung also, without such error, I presume, during the init script execution). Because of limited resources and time, I only know for sure the module was missing from the F11 initrd, and am ASSUMING the same was the case with F12.

The only difference between the successful installs and the ones with failed boot is that the successful installs were made on a single-drive (JBOD) mode on the controller; whereas, the failed ones were placed on RAID 5. But, AFAIK, the created logical device for the card is "/dev/sda", in both cases, and the kernel can not distinguish between the two cases (or can it?). Thus, the inconsistency cost me a lot of time, and is still inexplicable to me.

Question: What is the best way to deal with custom drivers, today? There are custom spins, and many tools, like isomaster. Stupid question: Is there a way to modify the initrd inside an installer ISO -- be it for CD/DVD/USBboot drive -- beefing the init RAM disk with whatever modules you'd like, for the boot process (using, say, isomaster)?

And what makes anaconda understand that a module must be added to the initrd ? How can one force anaconda to do so?

How does moving to dracut as the initrd tool affect any/all of the above?

Fedora Installation :: Removing Older Kernel Installs

Fedora :: Installing Older Kernel Header Files With Yum Or Rpm

Feb 3, 2011

I just had a hard drive failure on my mythtv box that I had been running F14 on. I reinstalled F14 and just got about everything up and running like normal again except that I upgraded the kernel by mistake when I was upgrading everything else to current levels. The problem is that I run a hauppauge pvr150 on this mythtv box, and the code for capturing on this card is broken on the latest kernel version. I have the kernel headers and development files installed for the newest kernel that I can't really use, but I didn't install the kernel headers for the older kernel before the upgrade. Now, I am looking for a way to forcefully install the older kernel development files so that I can compile my the proprietary nvidia drivers against it for my adapter. I downloaded the rpm files from the fedora 14 repository directly. Is there an option for rpm that I can use to force the installation?

Debian Configuration :: Install Custom Kernel Image

Mar 11, 2016

I've a problem running jessie on a XEN supervisor; my running kernel and the installed kernel image differ, because the host system forces the kernel at boot time. Current loaded kernel is

Code:
Select all$ uname -r

But I'm not able to install this version from the standard repository.

Code:
Select all# apt-cache search linux-image

linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 - Linux 2.6.32 for 64-bit PCs, Xen dom0 support

Now I'm facing issues loading kernel modules for iptables, because the module path does not exist. Is there an easy way to install a proper kernel image from the standard repositories?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation From USB Stick With Custom Kernel

Feb 10, 2010

i need to install openSUSE 11.2 from an USB stick. I followed this article SuSE install from USB drive - openSUSE using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-i586.iso. Unfortunately the kernel provided in this image doesn't load on my target as it needs a few extra modules for its chipset.

Thus i copied our custom kernel (which is verified to run on the target) and its initrd to the usb stick and i also created a new entry in the syslinux.config. The kernel loads, but then it can't find the root device.Does anybody know, how i need to configure the initrd to make the USB stick the root device?

Fedora :: Custom Kernel HDA Or SDA?

Oct 14, 2010

a stock fedora 11 install on my embedded board results in the primary CompactFlash card being driven by the SCSI driver and is called SDA..running my custom kernel which i have slimmed down and yanked out the SCSI stuff because I dont need it, results in my CompactFlash card being called HDA of course driven by the ATA driver.which should I be using? both work just fine.. the CompactFlash card is on board and according to Soekris is actually run from an IDE controller, as there is no SCSI on board..

so im assuming the less amount of system overhead is to run it as IDE?I have no issues running it either way I just want to do whats right.. and what is going to be supported in kernels down the line, as im considering a bump from my current 2.6.30 kernel upwards for my project.

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Custom Install Kernel And Initrd?

Mar 26, 2010

I need to install Ubuntu on approximately 50-60 netbooks. None of them have CD drives, and I don't want to have to install them individually, walking around with a USB stick. I figured the fastest way to install on so many machines is to use a combination of apt-cacher (http://www.debuntu.org/how-to-set-up...ith-apt-cacher) and netbooting. I have successfully booted one machine to test, but as soon as the kernel comes up, support for the network interface is gone. Specifically, the "atl1c" module is not included on the netboot initrd image. Also, I would like to try to use preseeding, and I need to get that onto the initrd as well.

So, to summarize my question: How can I create a custom install kernel and initrd? I have a feeling it's related to the "debian-installer" category in the package repository, but I have not found any good documentation about doing this.

Fedora :: Custom Kernel - Where To Pull RPM

Jun 18, 2011

This is (I'm sure) a silly question, but when reading the guide for custom kernel [url] it mentions I need to use yumdownloader to pull the source as an RPM.

How exactly do I find mirrors etc for this (and where do I configure it)?

I've already got the source locally along with the patches I want to use, and want to try this the 'fedora' way. I'd normally just use make/make modules etc, but I've never tried it via RPM.

Fedora :: Kmow-wl Package For Custom Kernel

May 16, 2010

i just upgraded myself with all available packages from the kde-testing, and fedora-updates-testing repo's. i am dealing with one problem..... i am running kernel:

Code:

@localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.32.10-44.fc11.i686.PAE

however,, there are no kmod-wl packages for that kernel, so i have no wireless at the moment. how do i build / obtain kmod-wl package for my kernel? rebuilding the kmow-wl src packages does occure in build for an older kernel:

the command

Code:

rpmbuild -ba --target=`uname -m` wl-kmod.spec

results in:

Code:

Fedora :: No Sound In GNOME With Custom Kernel?

Apr 6, 2011

I have a strange and inexplicable problem I've never had before - I can play audio as usual from the terminal on Fedora 14 with my custom 2.6.38 kernel. But, when I log into GNOME, any attempt to use an application that uses audio gives me a "permission denied". The "Sound preferences" shows a dummy output device and no entry in the "hardware" section. Using the distro kernel and a 2.6.33.7-rt kernel from planet ccrma works fine.

Is there anything I'm supposed to build into the kernel that Fedora 14 requires that wasn't a requirement for earlier versions?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Compiling And Installing The Custom Kernel Under Fedora

Jun 22, 2011

I am compiling and installing the custom kernel based on the instructions provided in Building_a_custom_kernel on fedoraproject.org/wiki site.

However, according to the instructions, anytime I change anything in the kernel source files(e.g /driver/ata/libata-core.c), I have to create a patch a rebuild the whole kernel and install this new kernel which takes 2 hours. Is there a simpler way of recompiling what has changed(without creating patch) and try that changed kernel? Since my changes are not in the drivers which can be dynamically loaded but is in the static code of the kernel, it is making life cumbersome.Are there any instructions for this? How does other kernel developers manage this?

Fedora :: Install An Older Version Of Wine?

Dec 30, 2009

The newest version of wine 32-bit (1.1.32?) seems to be a disaster. I had Newsbin Pro working great in Fedora 10. Now this program won't run with wine.i686 on Fedora 12 x64.

I have tried Crossover Linux 8 standard and Newsbin Pro works with that. Crossover is using wine 1.1.18. However that will cost me $40.

How do I install an older version of wine with the dependencies in Fedora 12 x64?
I searched for an rpm and found various flavors of wine rpms. Can I just install that older rpm?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Install Older Version Of Java JDK

Jun 10, 2010

I have a Sun Fire X4450 running RHEL 5.3. Attached to this server via FC is a Sun StorageTek ST2540 that allows additional storage capacity. In order to administer the ST2540, a software application from Sun (CAM 6.6) has been installed. Part of the install process for this application also installs Java JDK1.6.0_12 (64-bit).

However as we use this hardware as a database server, our database software will not install properly as it requires an earlier version of Java JDK1.5.0_11 to be installed. When I try and install the older JDK rpm package, RHEL will not let me. How can I get both versions of Java installed?

Hardware :: Install Fedora 13 On An Older Dell PC?

Sep 30, 2010

This is probably a dumb question...but you know what they say about dumb questions...

I would like to install Fedora 13 on an older Dell PC (which had at one point run Fedora).

But I plan to download and burn the ISO bootable Fedora CD/DVD on my Windows 7 box.

The question then becomes: Does the 32-bit versus 64-bit distinction have to do with the download and ISO-CD/DVD creation (what OS and hardware you're doing it on)?

or

Does the 32-bit versus 64-bit distinction have to do with the *Target* OS and hardware (in this case Fedora 13, and I assume 32-bit)?

So, do I download the 64-bit version or the 32-bit version (the older Dell is 32-bit hardware)?

Most of the references I've found talk about modifying the current CentOS kernel using the RPM way. I really want to have the latest kernel due to some important security issues that haven't been addressed in the current CentOS 5.3 kernel.
