Server :: Upgrading Kernel 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen To Current Non Xen Release

Feb 18, 2011

I currently have a server that is running on the Linux kernel 2.6.18-128.7.1.el5xen and I was wondering if it was possible to upgrade it to a new official Red Hat non-xen kernel(currently is unique about this kernel is that it is NOT a virtual system kernel but an older XEN kernel with proprietary material removed.If it is possible I was wondering about any repercussions that may occur as a result of said update. This would include, any issues with potential data/driver losses as well as recovery procedures that may be used if something would happen to it during the upgrade.

Slackware :: Kernel Panic After Upgrading Slackware64-current To 2.6.32.x Kernel?

Jan 20, 2010

I have one machine where I have several versions installed on different partitions. The base partition (/dev/hda1) is Slack 12.1. On a spare partition (/dev/hdc4) I had installed Slackware64-current. Last week I slackpkg upgraded and installed the kernel, and now that partition will not boot. I know that with the new kernels the hd* designation has been removed, and have already redone that fstab (accessing it from a different boot) to reflect the sd*. Here is the slack64 section of my lilo.conf:

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /other/spare4/boot/vmlinuz

I'm fed up with Gentoo and would like to migrate to Ubuntu. I just installed 10.04 Beta, but I'm wondering if I should continue configuring my system. Is it possible/easy/painless to upgrade to the release version when it comes out? Or should I stop investing any work into the beta right now and wait for the release?

Ubuntu :: Upgrading Netatalk Past The Official Meerkat Release Version?

Jan 8, 2011

Shortly after upgrading to Meerkat I discovered that my macbook timemachine backups became unreliable to the point of uselessness. After a bit of googling it appears that Meerkat's version of Netatalk (2.1.2) has some issues that bust timemachine. These issues are supposedly fixed in version 2.1.3. So... what is the best way for me to go about upgrading Netatalk past the official Meerkat release version?

The Netatalk project is at version 2.1.5. I could uninstall the Meerkat packages and just try to build Netatalk directly from source. However I'm a little leary about losing all of my existing AFPD filesystem meta-data. The Natty Narwhal repository appears to have version 2.1.4 which I've read should solve my problem. Is there any way to install the binaries from the Natty repositories? Can I download the source package from the Natty repositories and rebuild the package with Meerkat libraries/dependencies?

Slackware :: Upgrading To -current And Multi-lib From 13.1?

Nov 16, 2010

I'm looking at running -current instead of 13.1, and wondering about 'upgrading' to -current, as well as running multi-lib. I found the following procedures from another post of about a year ago, but I'm not sure from what directory to run such a script:


# Upgrade to Slackware64-current
upgradepkg --install-new slackware64-current/slackware64/*.t?z
# Download compat32 stuff


Should the procedures above work for me? and although I know that things may occasionally break here and there (and get fixed too), are there any known issues right now that would break things on my machine?

Fedora :: Want To Keep Current Kernel?

Aug 19, 2011

I want to keep my current Kernel (I wanted to keep the last one but read on... lol) Why? Fedora is stable as a rock right now and so is GNOME

Now: 2 updates ago I thought I was cool and I did this:
nano /etc/yum.conf
and I added.... this: exclude=kernel* nvidia*

But right after the next update.... all hell broke loose.... X errors and more... no need for details since I used tty2 to uncomment the "exclude" in yum.conf... updated and ALL is well and VERY stable (good job to Fedora.... it wasn't your fault... I just know I didn't exclude enough )

"What do I need to exclude in yum.conf if I want to keep the current Kernel as well as Nvidia driver while keeping everything updated besides "kernel* and besides "nvidia* packages"? I know I missed a dependency and that upgrade broke the "old"
