I recently installed debian squeeze 32bit on a second partition of my amd athlon 64 X2 dual core machine.Currently it is using linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686 kernel.But linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-amd64 is available.on the repository.Is it a 64bit kernel or 32bit kernel optimized for amd64 architecture?
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?
just updated to the kernel 184.108.40.206 contained in this repository: Index of /repositories/Kernel:/stable/openSUSE_11.3 The x86_64 type. And im getting a kernel panic after about 15 minutes of machine usage. Is it an error in packaging or what?
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.
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.
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.
first of all, please excuse my bad english. We rent a dedicatet server at Strato.de.I need to install VMWare Server. Actually this should be no Problem for me. I installed the server an patch.When I run the vmware-config.pl starts the problems:
Code: Your kernel was built with "gcc" version "4.3.2", while you are trying to use "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3". This configuration is not recommended and VMware Server may crash if you'll continue. Please try to use exactly same compiler as one used for building your kernel. Do you want to go with compiler "/usr/bin/gcc" version "4.3" anyway? [no] I submit "y".
I'm just installed OpenSuse 11.3 (64) on a 30gb SSD, hoping to get virtualbox 4.0 running to virtualize an instance of Windows 7.I went through some pain with my Nvidia video card and actually getting vb to install, but through lots of searching and tinkering got here.I created a vm in the vb control panel, but when I go to start it I get:
Code: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Win7Main. The virtual machine 'Win7Main' has terminated unexpectedly during startup with exit code 1.
My company support a client with an old Redhead server " Linux version 2.6.9-5.ELsmp [URL] (gcc version 3.4.3 20041212 (Red Hat 3.4.3-9.EL4)) #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:30:39 EST 2005" My IT department wants to move this old server to a VMware machine and I'm trying to check if this project can fly. Me my self never worked on an old Linux server there for my first question is can I upgrade the kernel with the command yum -y install kernel..... and when I'm done I'm still going to have the old kernel just in case?
A recent kernel update seems to have misplaced the Kernel Headers. VMWare needs these headers and cannot find them. Attempting to run VMWARE gets the message: Kernel headers for version 220.127.116.11-0.2-desktop were not found.
Linux Kernel 2.6.38 was officially released on 3/15. This kernel upgrade promises to fix the driver issues for video cards with 1080P, and has a number of other great features. Any idea when this will be available for SuSE 11.3 & 11.4? Also, if this kernel proves to be a workable solution, are their plans for re-releasing 11.4 using this kernel?
I'm trying to install the 32bit 10.04 server to an atom machine from a CD burned with ubuntu-10.04-server-i386.iso. The installer is presenting me with the:"No kernel modules were found" ..error message. Is the atom cpu and chipsets supported by the 32bit server installer?
i upgraded from 11.1 to 11.2. Unfortunately the new kernel does not work with my sata/southbridge (i googled and figured its a known issue). So i tried to boot a 11.1 64bit rescue system to install the older kernel and the corresponding initrd. The problem is, that i cant find the kernel and initrd on the rescue system.
what does kernel suffix mean?After OS installation and supplementary product installation I am discovering a set of boot alternatives and corresponding kernel versions. They have different suffixes: -pae, -default, -trace.
It appears that kernel *-pae is booting normally,while kernel *-default hungs in the middle of booting process being unable to discover certain disk or partition.Some products also have similar suffixes: -pae, -trace,-default. What does it mean? Shall I keep kernels that do not boot?
I currently have 18.104.22.168 installed on my netbook which causes problems, causing the netbook to freeze.
So, I downgraded to 22.214.171.124 and is working properly. Using Yast, I had marked 126.96.36.199 as do not install but after several days of use (by my kids) 188.8.131.52 mysteriously comes back and the system freeze again
How can I have 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 both installed on the same system so that I can avoid the trouble to manually reinstall 18.104.22.168?
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?
I have tried to 'rpm -ivh' the 2.6.34-8 image to the 2.6.31-5 on my Suse 11.2. Without any luck, rpm goes fine, however at the next bootup, then udev is about to be initialized, the machine goes down (don't see any message).
But if I install the MileStone 7 of 11.3 on the same machine, it works just fine.
Are there any scripts/howtos I have to follow if I upgrade from 2.6.31 to 2.6.34?
I installed the new 22.214.171.124-0.1 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.
I received a kernel update a few days ago. When I try to boot with kernel 2.6.37, I get a few errors saying that a volume couldn't be mounted and that /lib/modules/2.6.37-desktop/modules.dep couldn't be found. I'm then left with a minimal terminal prompt.
Is this a common problem? If not, I'll try to take a picture of the error so that you can see exactly what happened. I can still boot with kernel 2.6.34 like I could before the update.
When I build the kernel 2.6.30 source, the rpm package is very big and needed or root filesystem 800-900 Mb. I use "make rpm" as described in Configure, Build and Install a Custom Linux Kernel - openSUSE.
Search the forums first. Well I did, can't find anything I understand. So please help an ignoramus in simple terms. The problem:- I'm trying to run vmware workstation and I get a desktop box pop up which says "Kernel .heade4s for version 126.96.36.199-1.2 desktop not found" How do I find them and install please.
