OpenSUSE Install :: Where To Get 11.1 Kernel And Initrd

Dec 17, 2009

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.

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.

I'm I seeing this wrong or is the initrd file in kernel-2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.x86_64 a zero byte file and that's why I can't boot with it( get this "kernel panic not syncing VFS unable to mount root fs on known -block (0,0)" message)

Red Hat :: RHEL 4 - Make Initrd For Kernel Version Different Fromthe Base Kernel?

Mar 12, 2009

The RHEL 4 update 7 installation CD installs the kernel with version 2.6.9-78.EL and therefore must contain corresponding vmlinuz and initrd.img. However I would like to have an all modules initrd that is used during installation but for a different version (2.6.9-78.0.13.EL). Is there a way in which I could obtain/make such an initrd?

OpenSUSE Install :: Copy Of Initrd-2.6.31.14-0.4-desktop (11.2 I586)?

Dec 23, 2010

A fault in my USB key killed the contents of the /boot partition. I could restore grub, and got back kernel files by extracting kernel-desktop-2.6.31.14-0.4.1.i586.rpm, but now I miss initrd! (I have currently no means to make it.)Would someone having this one be kind enough to e-mail it to me? (It's around 6 MB so it should be OK.) I'll PM you my e-mail address.

OpenSUSE Install :: Getting The Source For /init Inside The Installer's Initrd?

Mar 21, 2011

In short. I've cracked open the initrd file of the openSuSE installer to have a look - I've determined it's an initramfs which by default would execute ''/init''GREAT! But not so much... init should find the installation files et cetera - but I haven't a clue how it does this because it's a compiled binary So, my question is this - do anyone know where I can find the source for this file ?

If not, who should I contact to find it? I really, really need to look at it.. I'm trying to throw the installer over to a USB harddrive (with multiple other installers, each in their own directory etc. etc.) - the idea is to create a USB HDD with installation mediums for the OS's I use so the recommended methods of dedicating a partition to openSuSE is not going to work...

Slackware :: Generic Kernel And Initrd Not Working

Apr 8, 2010

I've changed for huge kernel to a generic+initrd setup per the instructions in the README.initrd file however my machine fails to boot using that method. I get the following errors:
/boot/initrd.gz: Loading kernel modules from initrd image:
mount: mouting /dev/sda2 on /mnt failed: No such device
ERROR: No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted)

1. I've created the initrd using the results from /usr/share/mkinitrd/mkinitrd_command_generator.sh
mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.33.1 -f ext4 -r /dev/sda2 -m usbhid:ehci-hcd:ext4 -o /boot/initrd.gz
2. my root fs is ext4 on /dev/sda2
3. I've changed all necessary links in /boot
4. I've changed my /etc/lilo to:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/sda2

Fedora Installation :: Exclude The Kernel And Initrd From Being Updated?

Jan 21, 2009

I had to uninstall f10 from my system because it would lock up my system anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes into using it and noone could tell me why.

NOW, I put 9 back on my system and after it updates everything, it locks up again. it does give me the option of the new kernel and the original install's kernel and if I choose the original to boot with, I don't have any problems.

SO, is there any way to fix it, OR to exclude the kernel and initrd from being updated?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Boot From A Vanilla Kernel Without Initrd?

Oct 17, 2010

I've downloaded 2.6.36-rc8 vanilla kernel, then I copied .config file from my current working kernel 2.6.32.21-168.fc12.x86_64, then I've configured, compiled and installed kernel like this:

Code:
make gconfig
make -j4 all (or make all)
make modules_all
make install
The last command edits my grub.conf file and writes this:
[Code]....

I checked my .config and ACPI, and File Systems are built into kernel and not loaded as modules... And, I have LVM but my /boot partition isn't in it, so I don't HAVE to use initrd, right? How can I boot from a vanilla kernel without initrd ?

Debian :: Make-kpkg --initrd Won't Create Initrd?

May 18, 2010

When I compile a custom kernel with this command: make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers and then install the .deb, there's no initrd in /boot and I have to create it manually. I've thought that the --initrd option should take care about this, but somehow it doesn't.

It behaves like this for about two years at least (since I've compiled my first kernel). Of course, it's no big deal to create it manually, I was just wondering whether do I do anything wrong or whether should I fill a bug report..

Debian :: Building Kernel - Initrd Fail And Nvidia Can't Find Source

Feb 25, 2010

So I'm building a custom kernel cuz I want the fbcondecor patch in my kernel. I use the same .config that 2.6.32 debian kernel package comes with. This kernel runs perfectly. I pass --initrd to make-kpkg when building the package but no initrd is built when I install it so I have to make it using "mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.33 2.6.33" to get it to boot. Now when I try to build the nvidia drivers it complains it can't find the source. I did build kernel_headers and installed them also the source is in /usr/src/linux. I also tried to specify the path by passing --kernel-source-path= to the nvidia script but no change. What is going on? I've done this fifty times before and never had any problems. Has there been some changes to how debian kernel packages are built? EDIT: Just thought I'd add some info about the steps I took.

Code:
tar xjvf linux-2.6.33.tar.bz2
ln -s linux-2.6.33 linux
cd linux
patch -p1 < ../fbcondecor-0.9.6-2.6.33-rc7.patch
cp /boot/config-2.6.32-trunk-686 ./.config

make menuconfig Loaded .config then I removed support for maxtorfb, tile blitting and some sirrusfb thing, nothing thats relevant to my system. Changed cpu from Pentium 4 to Core 2 and added framebuffer decor
support from my patch, exited and saved. Then:

[Code]....

EDIT2: I have now tried to build 2.6.32.8 in the same way with the same strange results, anyone have any thoughts as to what I'm doing wrong just throw it at me, I'm getting desperate and running out of ideas. I've checked all the kernel source symlinks and everything looks good.

OpenSUSE Install :: Custom Build From Suse Studio|missing "initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-default" File?

Dec 2, 2010

If you can access Suse Studio here is thlink to the buildLFS Host - SUSE GalleryGoogle hasn't been friendly and neither has a search on these forums, I don't know which man to read so a finger in the right dirrection (preferably not the middle) would be nice as far as that goesRight now the yast live installer trips up at %84 while saving the boot loader configuration and displays a popup that says �An error occurred during initrd creation. /sbin/mkinitrd: illegal optionI then press enter to acknowledge the message and the installation continues without a hitch.

When I go to boot up (no other os installed) grub says it cant find the file initrd-2.6.34.7-0.5-defaultIf you boot the live cd again you can mount the boot partition and you�ll find a broken symlink called initrd that islooking for the missing file above.Like I said above, if it an obvious fix, all I need is some direction, I don't mind reading. (been doing that all day)If you need more specifics Id be happy to supply, I'm just not sure whats relevant and don't want to bloat the post.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot From USB Connected External Hard Take Long Time From Loading INITRD Image To Start Boot Process?

Jul 18, 2011

I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.

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.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub2 And Initrd Failed To Install

May 17, 2010

I just did a new install of Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on a system with multiple older versions of Ubuntu already installed. There was a dpkg error during the install with no useful information provided, otherwise the install completed normally. When I rebooted, the old grub2 ran and presented my old boot menu. When I mounted the 10.04 partition to see what was there, I found that /boot/grub/ was empty and /boot/initrd.img was missing. The other boot files were present.

CentOS 5 :: Kernel Panic - Getting This"failed To Make Kdump Initrd" Messages At Startup."?

Oct 12, 2009

I've had a Centos 5.3 zimbra mailserver set up for about 3 months now.Every 7-10 days or so, the system will do a kernel panic and I've been putting off its resolution due to other matters.I'm now ready to look into it but I have two issues :

1) No logs.

So far, I've manually rebooted when a kernel panic occured and could look at the panic printout and write down relevant info. But since I wanted more info than I had written down, I went hunting in the logs for the kernel panic event (one happened earlier today) but, to my surprise, I noticed the system doesn't log the kernel panic at all. Kdump is currently disabled as I'd like to keep all available memory available to the system but I was under the impression it would log the kernel panic message regardless but would simply leave out more advanced diagnostic information.How would I make sure the kernel panic is logged so I can have more info about it ?

2) The actual panic.Here's a snippet of what's appearing when the kernel panics :

EIP c0467136 page_remove_rmap+0x66/0xc0 SS:ESP 0068:c3ca6ddc <0> Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal Exception

I've also seen f793bee4 instead of the highlighted part above but everything else is always the same from the times I've seen (as I haven't always had the chance to be around when a panic occured).I'm looking further into it at this point but early research seem to indicate this could be a memory issue. I'll run memtest next weekend to check that out (since I don't want to take the system offline for any length of time during office hours) but people here might have other theories based on what I've put up so far. The system has all of the latest patches and updates and is running only what I need as far as software goes (zimbra server + prerequisites, x + GNOME (not loaded on startup), firefox and vnc for windows RDP access). My system also uses a software RAID1 array (boot = md0 and / = md2 with swap files not being mirrored as there's no need to).

PS : In order to further troublehsoot by myself before posting here, I've tried to enable kdump to see if kdump is the culprit for the missing logs but I'm also having an issue with it. I'm getting a "No kdump initial ramdisk found" and "mkdumprd: failed to make kdump initrd" messages at startup. I'm thinking this might be because of my raid array ? I've found an old bug report regarding one of those error messages on centos 5.2 but it was supposedly fixed in the 30 version by RH and I'm using the latest one (56).
