Ubuntu Installation :: Does Kernel Get Patched Between Releases?

Jun 12, 2010

if I have a kernel that does not automatically update because I installed it from a deb, will I be missing out on important security updates or the like? I installed the 2.6.34 kernel because I wanted trim support, but am very concerned that I will miss something important.

Debian Installation :: No More SATA - Releases Freeze Up Almost Instantly After Loading The Kernel

Apr 13, 2011

I'm trying to install Debian 6.0.1a (64bit) onto a machine that had Debian 5.08. It freezes up almost immediately after loading the kernel. The last line, about 2.6 seconds in, is where it found a SATA drive. (There are two SATA drives). This is a Tyan S2912 with Opteron 2347HE. It seems to be kernel release related. I tried the 5.08 disc again, and it works OK.

With other distros, such as Opensuse and Ubuntu, I have the same problem. The newer releases freeze up almost instantly after loading the kernel. Am I stuck with IDE drives or older kernels? I wanted to try something newer as the fonts in the 5.0.8 release were barely legible. It gave me nauseating headaches within a couple of hours of looking at it. My wife couldn't stand to see it when she came by. I've tried every bios setting change I could think of without a solution.

What if there is any kernel related update from ubuntu will I receive that update ? What if new ubuntu version is release, can I upgrade without breaking my whole system ?

Slackware :: Compile 2.6.37 Kernel Patched With The Autogroup Patch On A Slackware 13.1 System?

Jan 13, 2011

it's possible to compile the 2.6.37 kernel patched with the autogroup patch on a Slackware 13.1 system running with headers? I just compiled and installed the 2.6.37-autogroup kernel from AUR on my ARCH setup and I like it especially when using firefox with lots of tabs open and other background apps also running. I did notice a speed and smothness difference in my ARCH testing setup with this kernel patch and I can get same results in 13.1??

Ubuntu Installation :: Are There Different Karmic 9.10 Releases

Sep 7, 2010

How do I install a specific one? Or better yet, revert back to an earlier release.

I have two systems running.
2.6.31-22-generic #60-Ubuntu aphrodite release
2.6.31-22-generic #63-Ubuntu amaterasu release

I googled the #60 and #63 and it listed release names highlighted above, is this correct?

If it is, how can I install the aphrodite release?

I have one system working great (#60), while the other exhibits problems playing back 1080p video files (#63). The only HW difference that could affect the dropping frames is the 8200/8300 Nvidia chipsets (with the 8200 working perfectly) and then of course the Karmic releases. I have re-installed the system and files twice and even upgraded new releases of Nvidia drivers (195 > 256) with no success.

My next step is to try and install the same exact release of Karmic if indeed there is a difference between #60 and #63.

My next step might be to use clonezilla and clone the OS (Root) and try that. But then the chipsets for sound are different as well as the ehternet chipset. But that shouldn't impair the video.

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuck On 9.10 - System Freezes On Last 3 Releases

May 11, 2011

I have been a happy Ubuntu user for several years. But I am stuck with version 9.10 because of a persistent problem with random lockups with both mouse and keyboard. A search on the forums both within and without the Ubuntu community shows that a lot of other people have this same problem. There have been a lot of suggestions given and I have tried everything I could find, but without success. I have tried clean installs of vs. 10.04, 10.10, and 11.04 but all have the same problem.

The computer will work fine for a few minutes to a few hours and then just lock up. The only way out is a hard reset. Someone suggested that the latest versions of Ubuntu have a problem with some of the newer Intel chipsets, but I don't know enough to be able to say one way or the other. I am running an ASUS P7P55D motherboard with a 4 core Intel i5 processor and an Nvidia graphics card. I have tried the latest version of the bios for the P7P55D but that hasn't helped either. Vs 9.10 is no longer supported and I am being left behind.

Fedora Installation :: Keep A Local Install - Current Will All The Latest Releases?

Is there any way to keep a local install of Fedora current will all the latest releases? example If I'm running F13, is there a failsafe method to have F13 become F14 with out all the drama of reformatting and installing off the dvd? In the past all my attempts have failed, possibily due to having multiple repos is use and kernel patches applied (nvidia central).

Ubuntu Networking :: Install Patched Driver For AWUS036H?

Mar 8, 2011

I have scoured the web for every bit of information I can find regarding installing the ieee80211 patched driver for the realtek rtl8187, to use an Alfa AWUS036H for packet injection. Error after error after error, I have had no success, and all I can find is other people with the same setup having the same problems.

Assume I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 straight out the box, so no updates have yet been made. Is someone in the know willing to post some step by steps on how to download, install and patch the necessary driver and install necessary software, including precise info on how to blacklist or remove mac80211 version rtl8187.ko in order to replace it with the patched ieee80211 version?

I know there's a tutorial on here somewhere for installing rtl8187 in an older version of Ubuntu, and in that thread, the people with Ubuntu 10.10 all seem to be having the same problems.

Software :: How To Report Patched Php5-5.3.6/ext/openssl/xp_ssl.c

May 14, 2011

This may sound odd, but how does one report a patched file to a major dev team, like PHP? Sure, they have their bug report page, but the following bug hasn't even been reported. After a bit of googling, though, I found the solution.

As I learned from first hand experience, compiling php5-5.3.6, when ./configure --with-openssl, terminates like so code...

if one has openssl-1.0.0d installed. Apparently, OpenSSL dropped support for SSLv2 with said version, and php5-5.3.6 doesn't know what to do without it enabled.

Fortunately, the boys @ Debian figured it out & have patched xp_ssl.c previous to their latest php5-5.3.6-10.deb release, but how do you let the PHP devs know?

Red Hat :: Finding A Command That Generates A Report Or Allows To Check If Certain Updates Has Been Patched

Dec 1, 2010

I currently have Red Hat 5.4 installed and subscribed to red hat network for alert updates.The updates will be done by our administrator but I will like to check if the admin has done so on a weekly basis. Is there a command that generates a report or allows me to check if certain updates has been patched? I understand running a yum update will list all applicable patches. Should we just simply update all or only certain applications applicable to our organization environment?

Ubuntu :: What's With Different Repositories For Different Releases

Dec 16, 2010

So yea, why are there so many repositories for the same source (playdeb for example) that specify lucid from maverick or karmic? Why doesn't the repository work on Lucid if it's a repository for Maverick? A big question is why I can't get access to playdeb's stuff on a Lubuntu installation.

Fedora :: How Do Releases Map To Kernels

Jan 14, 2010

My MythTV system is running under F12. It is in "appliance mode;" all configured and happily doing the PVR thing without a pressing need for upgrades.However, there is a feature in the upcoming 2.6.32 kernel that I'd like to take advantage of; internal support for a certain capture card.

I see 2.6.32 mentioned as part of the F13 release. My question is, will it also be available for F12 . . . maybe sooner than the F13 release?Another way to put this is: How wedded are Fx releases and kernel releases? Is a major kernel goalpost like 2.6.32 the reason why Fx releases are made?

Networking :: Wireless Worked On 3 Ubuntu Releases / Suddenly Dead

Feb 6, 2010

I'm not getting a response over on the Ubuntu WIreless Forum (which looks like it's getting slammed with questions), and weigh in on whether or not you believe I have a hardware failure on my hands? As I state in the post, I ran fine from the original installed version, 8.10, through 2 upgrades (to 9.04 and 9.10). Now none of them work (When the problems began I re-installed each of them in turn in order to test).

Fedora :: Repository Configuration For Older Releases

May 10, 2009

June 12, 2011. It appears that quite a few of the alternative repositories that I've suggested in the posts below are no longer functional. Rather than flog a dead horse I'm closing this thread and strongly suggest that you use a supported release of Fedora.The Fedora releases here, Fedora Core 1 through Fedora 12, are no longer supported or maintained, so they do not receive bug fixes or security updates. We do not recommend using these releases any more. I've spent the last day or so installing every Fedora release since Fedora Core 1, excluding Fedora 11, on a computer I had laying around. My goal was to figure out how to get yum to work despite the fact that the stock repositories are long gone in most cases.

I was motivated by the fact that the yum questions are never ending here at Fedora Forum and the question of how to make yum work for these older versions of Fedora seem to be quite common. The usual response is to install the newest and greatest Fedora. That's fine, but there are cases where this is just not possible. I'll outline separately what I've done for each release. You will only get one update, however, you should be able to install any software that is available through these repositories. You could consider adding other repositories if you need additional software.

CentOS 5 :: Maintaining Multiple Servers To Same Releases?

Aug 10, 2010

We (like many people) have a QA environment and a production environment consisting of several servers. We want to be able to make sure before we do any yum updates on the production machines that we've tested everything in QA. Unfortunately, yum gets the latest software when you run it, so you could run it two hours apart and up with different releases of some software. We need a solution.

I *think* what I have to do is create my own yum repository. There are a variety of articles on how to do that. But before I go through all that, I wanted to make sure I was on the right track. So the process would probably end up being:

1. Create a fresh repository
2. Upgrade QA from that repository, test, etc.
3. Upgrade production from that repository

Can someone verify this is the correct approach, or is there something easier? It also seems like step 1 is going to take a significant amount of time, plus it will continue to take a significant amount of time every cycle.

Fedora :: OS Drive Not Releases Freed Disk Space?

Oct 31, 2009

I have been having mysterious problems with my comp recently and I think it might have to do with my OS not releasing filespace. Previously, my OS partition was full, then I deleted/moved some files, but now it says that still no space is available:

[root@cluster log]# df -h (simplified):
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 7.9G 7.6G 0 100% /
/dev/md0 459G 110G 327G 26% /export
[root@cluster log]#

The OS being /dev/sda1 (I am 99% sure, didn't set it up originally) and is CentOS4. As you can see, I have only used 7.6GB, and I should have 300MB available. Only thing I can think of is that when it was full, I moved matlab from there to the /export drive and added in a symbolic link to where it was on the OS drive so it would still work ok. Could this be why the space is not being freed up? We are in the process of installing a 16TB drive so we can free up some space or expand the partition, but somebody else here at work is handling that, so some other option that I could do would be best.
