General :: Where To Get The Latest Kernel Thats Out Now For Ubuntu
Aug 11, 2010
I want to have a linux distro thata has the newest kernel thats out now ,which kernelss would yuou recommend? or how would you download the newest kernel for fedora 13? or ubuntu. im using a acer aspire netbook and want to get some things to work.
I would like to add latest tc+esfq functionality to machines running older distributions, FC3, FC5 etc. I am told I should down load the latest kernel and recompile with the proper patches which I can do. Are there problems with using latest kernels with older distributions, they are all running 2.6.x, but the x has of course gone up since FC3.
I have install windows XP and Fedora-14-X86_64 on dual boot, I want to run other OS on fedora by using Virtual machine. I have download and installed VirtaulBox-4.0.0 successfully but I cannot able to start it. I got error about Vbox driver not installed [error code:1908]. I have also installed DKMS package, but also didn't work.
Finally I found the actual problem was kernel not compatible with latest version of vbox and I need to update my kernel-headers. I also meet that solution by using command: yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel and its work fine, this command download and install the kernel compatible VirtualBox-3.2.* and now its works fine.
But problem is that when I booting my PC, it shows 3 options for entering OS rather then 2. 1. Fedora-14 (18.104.22.168.74.X86_64) [which is new one/updated after using that command] 2. Fedora-14 (22.214.171.124.45fc14.X86_64) [which is new one/updated after using that command] 3. Other [windows XP] How can i delete that old version- No.2?
If I go to the website and download the ISO file is it the exact same one that was released in April or will it contain the latest patches (e.g. security fixes, etc) that have been release since then? If it doesn't I suppose I'll have to download the entire ISO file, install the OS, and then have another couple hundred MB to download which is not what I'd prefer.
I know the latest kernel for 10.04 is 126.96.36.199, however all Synaptic shows is 2.6.32 versions.How do I get the latest kernels to show up in Synaptic? Barring that, is there a .deb package somewhere that installs it?
This is old P4 laptop, Intel845G graphics (which I know is very troublesome).However, it works fine with the 188.8.131.52, but the update to 184.108.40.206 kills X during the boot process. Everything else works fine.Anyone else experiencing any difficulty with X and this kernel update?
I am looking for instructions on how to install the latest 3.0.3 kernel, and I can't seem to find much. I downloaded the necessary files from kernel.org, and they are currently contained in my downloads folder.How do I install this, now? Is there an easier way, like a PPA option to download and install from?
I reported a bug at [URL].., then I had been asked to test the latest generic kernel in order to test whether the bug exist in latest kernel or not. I had read the information at [URL]... I installed the most current version of generic kernel. After that, I restart my computer and try to use the latest installed kernel. Then, the laptop freeze. Then, I restart my computer by turning off and on again, select the older kernel, successfully boot into Ubuntu to post this thread. What can I do since I am required to test the latest generic kernel?
Twice now I have received update notices informing me of header upgrades which I installed, both required a restart of the system. Usually when this happens there is an additional item in the grub menu. The last two times this has happened I didn't get an additional menu item. What is the latest stable version? I am currently running:
2.6.32-24-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Aug 20 14:21:58 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I did try a "sudo update-grub2" and the menu didn't change.
I can't go into text mode after latest kernel update. CTRL-ALT-F1 doesn't work. Actually, all CTRL-ALT-F1 to F7 work very strange. For example... When I click CTRL-ALT-F2, it close all my windows and screen flash
I'm running Hardy 8.04 LTS 64bit. The Update Manager updated the kernel and then asked if I wanted to use the local version of the grub menu. The boot menu was getting so long I edited it to shorten it. Other options were also offered, like the builder's version, but I chose the local version and since then the new kernel doesn't show up in the boot menu. Sudo update-grub doesn't restore it to the menu.
How do I undo the local version of the boot menu so I can see the newest kernel?
The microdia driver although notprovided by the manufacturer or ubuntu was available online and supported upto 9.10...but not instead of supporting it natively the support has been completely removed...i am able to compile the driver but it doesnt get inserteda complaint was also made on the launchpad bugs section and the ubuntu brainstorm page also but no action seems to have taken.....

I am running Maverick via Wubi. I just completed a Kernel upgrade and when I restart into Ubuntu it just goes to a Bash prompt. I am not sure exactly what version I updated to so I haven't logged a bug report yet.
Ubuntu 10.10 latest kernel 2.6.35-28.49 update is broken. update just stalls when it gets to this.Quote:
Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)...generating grub.cfg I have tried the following to no avail..Quote: sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
I have noticed that my battery-status applet icon, which appears next to the wireless symbol in the notification applet on the menu bar at the top of the screen, only appears for a second or two when I plug in my notebook and then disappears. It does not appear at all when the notebook is unplugged. just noticed this behaviorafter restarting with the new kernel
Since an Aptitude upgrade to my Debian Squeeze operating system (using video driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.24) some weeks ago, which installed linux kernel 2.6-32-5-686, grub has been giving me two boot options (in addition to MS Windows). I expect that this is quite normal so far ...
However, if I try to boot using this new kernel, rather than kernel 2.6-32-3-686, I can only get the command line interface. Everything seems to work after boot with the new kernel, except (although the system seems to load kdm successfully) I cannot start X. Booting with the old kernel still takes me to the desktop as normal (I've set KDE to automatically bypass kdm, as I'm the only user of this standalone PC), and because of this I've been slow to address the issue with kernel 2.6-32-5-686, but since the problem doesn't seem to be going away with more recent upgrades, I suppose a request to the forum is the only way to go:
So, is the problem I'm having the same as was addressed in this thread? If not, would I only need to reinstall the same NVIDIA video driver so that it recognises the new kernel? If not, would installing NVIDIA-Linux-x86-256.35 solve the problem, and would I have to deinstall the old video driver first? Finally, if and when I solve the problem, can I safely deinstall the old 2.6-32-3-68 kernel?
I can't access my grub menu (by pressing space bar on boot) to select a kernel to boot from, and I need to boot into 2.6.31 to fix an intel chip issue. How can I replace the current 2.6.32x kernel with 2.6.31, so it is the ONLY option grub can boot up with?
