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

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.

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 :: Install A Recent Kernel And Then Compile Some Variations?

Jan 25, 2011

I'm running 11.2 with standard repositories (plus packman). I want to install a recent kernel and then compile some variations of it (to investigate a hardware problem).

So I took these steps:

(1) add the 11.2 Kernel:/HEAD repository
(2) enable multiversion in zypp.conf
(3) use YaST software management to select the kernel development pattern

Note that at the moment, the standard 11.2 kernel ( is in use and I have not selected any packages from HEAD. But it has installed 2.6.37-41.1 versions of all the kernel packages I didn't already have (source & docs etc) instead of the 2.6.31 versions. /usr/src/linux symlinks to linux-2.6.37-41 instead of to a directory for the running kernel!

(1) it should have loaded the packages corresponding to the running kernel
(2) it's not supposed to switch repositories

OpenSUSE :: Recent Kernel Update Seems To Have Misplaced The Kernel Headers

Ubuntu :: Install A Recent - With An Old Kernel ?

May 5, 2010

I have a hardware not so popular, it's a VIA Nehemiah 1,5 Ghz i686 (a low power mobo). I've used it since many years ago.

This mobo seems to have kind of problems with new kernels. If I use the Linux 2.6.20-16-generic kernel or an older one everything is working well. But if I use a newer kernel it has a lot of problems. A lot of different problems and I tried to solve it many times but I couldn't.

For example, with the recent Ubuntu distro, the GUI freezes before starting the installation. If I install by terminal, the GUI freezes at the first start. If I install the server version of Ubuntu (or Debian) without X-server, it works for some minutes then it freezes. If I use a kernel just a bit newer (I don't remember which one... it was years ago) than 2.6.20-16-generic, it works for some hours, then it freezs. So, it is mandatory to use the kernel Linux 2.6.20-16-generic!

Years ago I installed Ubuntu (maybe 6.10) then I updated, more times, till Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS maintaining the old kernels. So now I'm running Ubuntu 8.04.4 with the 2.6.20-16-generic kernel and everything is working perfectly. Ubuntu 8.04 is fortunatly a LTS, so it will be supported till 04/2011, but I have to think about what to do after this date.

I don't remember well, but I think I've already tried to update from 8.04 to a recent Ubuntu (without jumping any version), maintaining my old working kernel, but I had some problems... I'm not sure, maybe will try again.

Anyway the question is: how install a recent Ubuntu (let's say 10.04) with the 2.6.20-16-generic kernel?

Possible solution:
1) Install Ubuntu 10.04 with an option which specify to use this old kernel. But I really don't know how to do it.

2) Try to install Ubuntu 10.04 with just basic service, eg. without GUI and networking. Then install (or compile and install) the old kernel there. Or compile it in another computer and then install it there.

The problem is that I had a lot of problems compiling that kernel (I tried on a Ubuntu 9.10 in a virtual machine) and i couldn't complete the compilation.

Anyway, let's forget for one moment about compilation, can I extract my current kernel from my working system and then install it on the new Ubuntu 10.04 (with basic service)?

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).

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?


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)

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 From DVD - Load Kernel Operation Hangs At 97% (using Both Normal And Safe Kernel)

Feb 23, 2010

I am an experienced Linux admin and have been using SuSE for many years. My development machine has had every version of SuSE since '02 and although it is a little old, is in good working order. (AMD
2400, 2 gig RAM, 160 Gig IDE disks - SuSE on disk 2) (OpenSuSE 11.1 with the latest kernel works perfectly. This install is on a spare HDD prior to doing a full install on my usual HDD.)

When I try to install SuSE 11.2 from DVD, the load kernel operation hangs at 97% (using both normal and safe kernel), however, I can install from live CD without any problem. I have tried the same DVD on a few "older" machines and had the same problem. I initially thought it was the actual DVD but re-burning has the same problem. I have also tried another DVD writer - same problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Time Wrong In XEN Kernel But Right In Desktop Kernel?

Feb 11, 2010

I have a system running openSUSE 11.2 with Desktop and XEN kernel, as well as Windows 7 (not by choice though...). I have noticed a strange time issue, with Windows 7 and the desktop kernel the time is correct (like for example now: 1:32 PM) but in the XEN kernel it is ahead several hours (6:32 PM). If it was an issue between openSUSE and windows then I would think that it is a problem with the system clock but I don't know what would cause a time issue between kernels like that.

OpenSUSE Install :: Differences Between Kernel Default And Kernel Desktop?

Jul 21, 2010

differences between Kernel Default and Kernel Desktop? I've found some past threads like this link and this other link, and some other google info, which suggest the only difference would be the io scheduler. Also, I see the default grub choice is "Desktop" and not "Default", so I take this as a suggestion to prefer one over the other.

However, my broadcom 4312 wireless only works on the "default" and not on the "desktop" kernel, so I guess there must be other differences. I just want to evaluate which one is the less long-term risk option to go.

OpenSUSE Install :: Broken System After Install Of Kernel Sources And Restart?

General :: Tried To Install Bcmwl-kernel-source And Now Getting Kernel Panic

Jun 25, 2010

I am running an Hp Pavillion dv6000 with the Broadcom card that never seems to work for Linux. I recently talked with my friend who said he found a way to get it work.following his instructions I opened Synaptic and checked the package bmcwl-kernel-source to be installed.I went through the process of it all and it said it had install successfully. I restarted the computer and when I tried to enter my operating system I got this error "Kernel panic - not syncing : VFS : Unable to mount root fs on unknown - block(8,1)"
I have previous versions of Linux on my computer so I can still get in to those if need be but I don't know how to undo what I did or why it isn't working for that matter. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am getting this error and how I can fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Load Kernel

Apr 17, 2010

Following a zypper dup and turning my computer off for a few hours; when I rebooted, I got a message saying, "error: you need to load the kernel first press any key to continue . . . " And then it goes back to the grub menu for of the same if I select openSUSE 11.2.SystemrescueCD won't boot it. I've tried to "repair installed system" and "rescue" with my openSUSE 11.1 DVD -- it won't even acknowledge (as it were) the presence of 11.2 or the system on the other hard drive (though it does recognise the partitions).The PCLinuxOS 2009 KDE and GNOME live CDs will redo the MBR of installed systems (at least, as far I know, PCLinuxOS is one of systems). In my experience, the 11.2 live CD won't. I was hoping the 11.1 DVD would. What to do?
