OpenSUSE Install :: Kernel Update Also In Error On 11.2?
Sep 26, 2010
After the lastest update 11.2 also suffers from the problem already reported here for 11.3. I am lucky to have two linux partitions and was actualy able to boot into the second partition. From this second system I could repair this or at least a quick-n-dirty fallback to be able to boot.
1. Copied the 220.127.116.11-0.2 version for initrd and vmlinuz from /boot to /first_partition/boot
2. Copied the /first_partition/boot/grub/menu.lst.old to /first_partition/boot/grub/menu.lst to reset to the old menu.
After boot the system could start but modules were not loaded.
3. copied /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-0.2-desktop from the second partition to the first.
4. The same for /usr/src/linux-22.214.171.124-0.2*
Now my system will boot and start modules such as network and sound. Still, was this correct? I don't know for sure if there are some issues that I haven't discovered yet. And obviously, what will happen with future updates (either kernel or other)?
I installed the new 126.96.36.199-0.1 security update earlier today. Now, the login screen no longer responds to my keyboard. In particular, I cannot type my password to log in. If I reboot into failsafe mode, the keyboard works and I can log in.
As the title says. System is openSUSE 11.1 running KDE3.5 with KDE4.3 also installed to use desktop effects in KDE3.5. After update X uses 90% CPU to scroll down a page in FF, OOo or even in text editor, either with KWin and KWin4. With KWin4 desktop effects can't be enabled in system config.
From Xorg.conf: Code: Section "Device" BoardName "ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics" Driver "fglrx" Identifier "Device" Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true" Option "Capabilities" "0x00000000" Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off" Option "FSAAScale" "0" Option "FSAAEnable" "off" Option "VideoOverlay" "on" Screen 0 VendorName "ATI" Rolling back to kernel 188.8.131.52 fixed the problem.
After upgrading kernel, system (AMD 780G)refuses to start in graphic mode. Computer services running fine, but there's nothing or some trash on screen when X started. And no way how to get out except restarting or shutting down from remote computer.
Reinstalling, unistalling ATI driver doesn't help. Also manipulations with xorg.conf (install, safe etc previous file versions)doesn't help.
Sax2 detects videocard correctly, but result is same regardless which resolution@Hz is specified.
In logfiles I just can find this
Jan 19 04:12:55 www kdm_config: Multiple occurrences of key 'UseTheme' in section [X-*-Greeter] of /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc Jan 19 04:12:55 www kdm: X server died during startup Jan 19 04:12:55 www kdm: X server for display :0 cannot be started, session disabled
the normal auto updater ran and installed a new kernel for security vulnerability and it was a .pae version. So after restart I now have 4 options on the boot screen, which includes the normal "SUSE" and a 'SUSE pae" version. defaulted to the new pae version and booted up. I got the video definition not found and had to enter a value manually. The system comes up but not into x system. It gives me a login prompt and startx yields a "terminal not found." Ran SaX2 and startx now works. Unfortunately my KDE desktop is messed up now. There are none of the normal "taskbar" at boot up started processes there. So what should I have done? how do I get my system back to normal and roll out the new kernel and all these changes?
Since the update to 11.3 i'm getting kernel panics randomly. Because the X server freezes and I can only force an "unexpected reboot", there is not much information I have. I installed kdump and activated it with the Yast module. I'm collecting dump files, now. But I'm not sure what to do with does files.
I updated the Kernel to 184.108.40.206-0.1-desktop. First problem was in order to do that I had to uninstall ndiswrapper. Now I have multiple entries in the bootloader, the default, the desktop, and the openSUSE 11.3 -2.6.34-12. Since I am new to linux what am I suppose to do with all those entries?
On a fresh install 11.3 gnome I am getting an update freeze on the kernel-desktop-220.127.116.11-0.5.1. This is on the initial software update after first log in on fresh system. It downloads the package and freezes during the update and causes all my other updates to reload. I went to init 3 and ran zypper update and saw that it made it to 91% and then stopped. After that I usually get a corrupted install.
I was doing a kernel update and can no longer boot into 11.3. I am dual booting with XP. I get Grub screen but no longer see Suse as a boot option, only Windows. I have tried to reinstall, but for some reason I can't get it to boot with DVD. So, is there a way that I can repair my computer without doing a reinstall?
Here's what to do right after applying the latest kernel security patch (18.104.22.168-0.4) to get the ATI driver back to work. Do not reboot yet make sure the update installed the headers and sources for kernel 22.214.171.124-0.4: rpm -qa | grep 126.96.36.199-0.4 should print the files in red on a 64bit system:
I recently installed 11.3 from DVD Am using Ubuntu Lucid Grub2 bootloader as I have several OS's Updated Grub so that the new kernel version 4 would boot but it boots to a command line... What has happened to my desktop?
This is just a nit, but I have noticed that whenever the kernel is updated, the background picture that I have set up for the login screen seems to be reset to "default_blue". No other setting seems to be disturbed.
After each update, I have to go into Configure Desktop->Login manager and set my background picture again. Why is this happening? Is there a way to fix this?
Recently I did a kernel update (compiling it manually with help of SuSE Automatic Kernel Compiler). Everything works fine and I am happy with my own settings, however there is one thing that I would to enable. On the stock kernel there is a openSUSE bootsplash on startup and a nice looking openSUSE background image in console mode. On my newly compiled kernel there is no such a eyecandies. My question is: How to enable them on my own compiled 2.6.38 kernel?
P.S In the attachment you can see what i mean with that background image in console mode, so you get my point. This is the image found on the internet, my system is openSUSE 11.4 (64 bit)
telling me if this behavior of my openSuSE 11.2 installation is normal? I use a 64-Bit openSuSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.x with root partition ext4. After adding and updating from repository kernel:/HEAD/etc to 2.6.34-rc4 I can not boot anymore due to a lack of module ext4. I thought today ext4 is stable and fix built-in in the actual kernel releases, isn't it? The error message at boot time: FATAL: Module ext4 not found. Which is right because in /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/kernel/ there is NO 'fs' subfolder. Isn't the kernel:/HEAD/ repository the official update path to get a newer major kernel? (besides openSuSE's Updates for security reasons) Do you know how I can fix it without self-compiling?
I have manually added an entry for Ubuntu in my grub menu, using Yast. But every time the kernel is updated, this entry disappears. On the other hand, the one for Windows, that was added during OpenSuse's installation, is still there. So how can I keep this entry for Ubuntu ?
Edit : when I save the menu configuration in Yast, I get the following message : Code: Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString) kbuildsycoca4 running... kbuildsycoca4 running...
I am using DEBIAN 6.0 and I wannna update my kernel from 2.6.32 to 2.6.38. Every time, I do it but after the installation & rebooting into the new kernel it gives me error "UNABLE TO BOOT INTO THE KERNEL".
I'm having an issue when I'm trying to install SuSE linux onto my desktop.I go through all the steps and everything looks okay, but when it starts to install the packages, I get an error message that basically says:kernel.desktop - unable to install, exit status 127.I have a ATI X1950 video card in the computer, as well as a AMD 64 FX CPU in the system.
(after i update packages, it says error, and here's whats in the details tab) Preconfiguring packages ... (Reading database ... 197969 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to replace flashplugin-installer 10.3.181.34ubuntu0.11.04.1 (using .../flashplugin-installer_10.3.181.34ubuntu0.11.04.1_i386.deb) ... code....
How to fix This? i haven't messed with Ubuntu much...Why am i getting an error about a kernel update?
It is my first try getting Linux on my pc which is an Acer Aspire Z5610. This is not the first time for me when I am getting an Kernel Panic error on this computer.
I looked up google hoping to find an answer and I found out that it may be my BIOS's fault. I currently have Windows 7 on this PC. I have a Phoenix BIOS and there is an update for it called "Bios Linux" on the official Acer support website.
OK, after this short introduction, that's the error:
I really hope to get support for this problem as I can not literally install any other OS to this PC than Windows 7 because they fail with Kernel Panic.
Tried other Linux Editions and even Mac OS Intel Edition and IAtkos V1 and V7 and they all give kernel panic.
I have installed Suse 11.3 on my computer yesterday but since then I have been trying to update it but unable to do so. Everytime I try I get this error message: "system management is locked by the application with pid 6953 (usr/sbin/packagekitd). close this appliaction before trying again."
So I installed this system with the net install disk. I really don't want to do that again. It said it needed one update shortly after install and I figured that a net install would pretty much be up to date and I would be fine to wait on that for a day or two. Wrong. I used bit torrent for about 20 hours and downloaded ~60 GB's to the external hard drive. After a while while clicked the little update button closed every thing else then hit apply.
Walk off, come back and the computer is completely non-responsive and the monitor is not getting a feed from the tower. Not even any num-lock blinky light action on the key board. I gave it a minute or two to show any kind of life then turned it off. It came back on well enough to get online and post this but, like the title indicates, that package manager appears to be broken in some way. In Debian based systems there is a command that clears this up. Is there an equivalent for this distro?
I attempted to finish the update but got this error: Code: installation of package failed. Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: package NetworkManager-glib-0.8-7.4.i586 is not installed.
Why not just disable that update and see what happens? That's what I said; heres what happens: Code: Installation of package failed. Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: db3 error(-30987) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found error: error(-30987) getting "" records from Requireversion index error: db3 error(-30987) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found error: error(-30987) getting "" records from Requireversion index .....
The above pertains to a fire fox update of some kind. I still have the install disk handy but would rather not wait the 3 hours it takes to download the packages. How I can fix this. I switched from Ubuntu to SUSE because it is supported by online learning soft ware I have access to.
Download (curl) error for [URL]... Error code: Connection failed Error message: Failed to connect to 2a01:e0c:1:1598::1: Network is unreachable
I read somewhere that I should deactivate IPv6, which I did with no success. It seems to happen since I upgraded gnome following this link : Archive:GNOME 2.30 - openSUSE My Internet connection is of course alive and working.
Today I installed suse 11.1 on my computer. After some time i was able to connect to the internet and the auto update program prompted for updates. after the updates were installed more updates were prompted. but now i get an error when i try to install them. edit: the error is "PackageKit Error internal-error: Installation aborted by user " if i try it manually i get an message "access denied to ......" how can i make my system update normal?
The red updater icon alerted me to about a dozen patches, which started to install, then halted with an error: Download failure from download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/non-oss. When I try to update repositories, the same error recurs for that repo and also for .../oss and download.opensuse.org/update/11.2/,
If I attempt to "register for support to get update repository," clicking on Configure Now and Next produces the same three error messages: "Failed to download", one for each repository. The screen then returns to Registration, with another error message "an error occurred while connecting to the server". Clicking on the Detail button show exactly "ERROR:"
This AMD desktop machine with this install of 11.2 has updated many times in the last few weeks. Has something changed? The update servers do respond to a ping, so they are up and apparently I have connectivity.
