Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Image Not Working Or Something Along Those Lines
Dec 15, 2010
i was recently trying to install ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop and it wont let me. I have it booting from a usb. I have everything set up right but before it installs it tells me that a kernel image is not working or something along those lines.
I'm trying to make a 18.104.22.168 kernel using kernelcheck. I have custom compiled two previous kernels for maverick alone, so my .config it will load is optimized as I built with the localmodconfig option, and I have been using the 200 lines patch on my 2.6.35 kernels. I want to find the patch file that works on the 2.6.37 kernel for the 200 lines patch so I can optimize my speed, but the patch i found galbraith-patch is only for 2.6.36.
I just got the new kernel update (2.6.32-24-generic, according to "uname -r"), and I went to restart my computer as the system requested. When I selected the new kernel from the boot menu, the Ubuntu splash screen came up, and then it did this subtle alternating shades of purple horizontal line thing. Then a vertical line appeared towards the right of the screen, and then everything faded into this cloudy, bright white splotchy...thing.
The keyboard was still responsive, and hitting ctrl+alt+delete restarted the machine, at which point I tried to replicate the problem, but everything loaded normally this time. My questions are: What the heck happened? Why? Is it dangerous? Why or why not? My machine is a Dell Inspiron 1501, 2 GB RAM, 120 GB hard drive, ATI integrated graphics, AMD 64 Anthlon X2 processor. I'm dual booting with Windows 7 as I learn Linux.
I want to install package kernel-image-2.4.27-2-686-smp, but when i use terminal to install , write sudo apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.27-2-686-smp but couldn't find this package. In my synaptic i can't find this package to install. I downloaded from [URL] this package kernel-image-2.4.27-2-686-smp_2.4.27-12_i386.deb ,when i install , to appear error: "dependency is not satisfiable: initrd-tools", i downloaded this package initrd-tools and install but appear this error:"dependency libdevmapper1.02", in my synaptic i saw this package libdevmapper1.02 already installed.how to install package kernel-image-2.4.27-2-686-smp from terminal or from synaptic.?
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my laptop.Its a dual boot with XP, have been using ubuntu/xp for a while now..Till now i always used to remove older kernel images after ubuntu update, then update grub and do "sudo apt-get autoclean" never had any problem at all.i skipped the second step, i removed the old kernel image and did "Autoclean" on apt-get but forgot to update grub.
Now after i have reboot, when grub loads i can see only 2 "Memtest" lines in grub list and 1 "windows xp" line.the "Linux kernel generic" line is missing. I can boot in xp (have done just that to post this) but since there is no line in grub list to boot into Ubuntu, cant boot in Ubuntu.Is there any option, something i can do at "Grub" to boot into Ubuntu?
I am currently running Fedora 10 XFCE on an Acer Aspire 1 (1.6ghz atom, 1.5gb ram, 8gb ssd). I am trying to install Fedora-11-i686-Live-XFCE via USB stick (Kingston 4gb) and am having no luck. I downloaded the .iso via bittorrent. If I use liveusb-creator: .iso passes checksum, installs boot image, installs syslinux, claims it's complete. When I try to boot, or simulate booting with qemu, I get the message "Could not find kernel image: linux" If I use
it says that the .iso passes checksum, installs live image, updates boot config file, and setup USB stick as a live image. Once again though, when I try to boot, or simulate booting with qemu, I get the same message "Could not find kernel image: linux"
Upon boot up the usual little mouse splash boot is suppose to come up. Once I first installed it (10.10 via usb) the boot screen worked perfectly but after I updated via the update manager the boot splash became all static and green lines across the image. It still boots up to the login screen but it's just ugly looking at it.
basically put a new hard drive in my old computer and wanted to install fedora on it, downloaded fedora 12 dvd iso (3ish gb in size) have burnt it to a dvd disc, turned my laptop on and set it to boot from cd drive, restarted it, it reads the disc and displays the following message:
ISOLINUX 3.75 209-04-16 ETCD Copyright (C) 1994-2009 H.Peter Anvin et al Could not find kernel image: Linux boot:_
The uderscore is flashing and i can type stuff in but have no idea what to type in to find the kernel image, or why it cant find the kernel image.
I install fedora on my usb-hdd. Sometimes i boot it from real machine, sometimes i boot from virtual machine (kvm). When I boot from real machine, hdd driver is usb-storage, when i boot from virtual machine hdd drivers are ata_generic and pata_acpi.
Everytime i update kernel, mkinitrd only create initrd image contains only hdd driver current running, and I must recreate initrd manual with all preload hdd driver. How to config fedora to everytime update kernel, mkinitrd can make initrd image with all hdd driver I need?
I'm trying to run extract-ikconfig because I've mistakenly deleted an old kernel config that I'd like to recover. However, when running the script from the latest (22.214.171.124) tree I run into this error:
ERROR: Unable to extract kernel configuration information.
This kernel image may not have the config info.
Coincidentally, this happens with all of my kernel images. Is it a fixable problem? I should really set CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC next time..
I decided today to try Xubuntu on my netbook.I downloaded an ISO of it, formatted my old 2GB Sandisk Cruzer Micro, and used Unetbootin to copy all the stuff onto the drive.Of course with flashing cursor after "boot:". So I tried rewriting with Unetbootin, and then even tried writing an ISO of Kubuntu to the flash drive.Each and every time, I get the same message.
I need module init tools 3.13 or higher. I have tried to install them from .debs I've found but after doing the make install it doesn't install them! then it says to do depmod but nothing works still! Also my wifi is super slow I have a realtek 8192CU. If I tether my phone my internet speeds are normal.
I've just installed Kubuntu 11.04, switched on wobbly windows effect. It runs very smooth on my Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS with dual screen twinview turned on. However, I get these lines when I drag/move the window upwards - see screenshot:
I have been experiencing a problem where the screen loads and after initial first few lines breaks up into multiple repetitions of lines. Reloading helps but has to be repeated when pageing down. Mail is no problem; it is supplied by my network provider. OS is openSUSE 11.2 which I update when advised. Below is a sample from the error console:
I have downloaded the i386-DVD.iso image and have burned it on a DVD using Nero Express 6, when it boots from the DVD, it give me an error message "Could not find kernel image: Linux" and the boot: prompt after that. I have burned another DVD using Infra Recorder with minimum write speed but with the same problem. I have Ubuntu already installed on the computer.
I downloaded 64-bit version of Fedora 11 and burned the iso on my dvd. When I rebooted the machine it booted up from the dvd but it showed an error message that kernel "image not found". And it stops there itself. Can someone show me some way except downloading the iso again?
Ive been trying to PXE boot a XEN kernel image in gzip format, and I was getting Invalid or corrupt kernel format error. Ive seen that other kernel images having a file type of Linux kernel x86 boot executable RO-rootFS are bootable. (both are bootable using grub anyhow).
Is there any way to convert the b/n the formats, or any other solution?
I was booting a Virtualbox instance, again I guess that shouldn't matter because pxelinux loads from tftp properly, but it doesn't even proceed to load the kernel. I think the issue here is with the image format itself rather than what it contains, or where it runs.
I know that it is possible to get the kernel version from a running system using "uname" command.I have a kernel image file in linux/arch/arm/boot/uImage.Is it possible to get similar information from this image file? and how?
I installed unetbootin, and picked linux mint because i heard mint is for beginners.I use HP mini, and connected USB drive.after installation is completed, restart machine, and changed boot order,this was on screen;"Invalid or corrupt kernel image"boot:press tab key for options.
Can you please let me know where to find minimum kernel image for my ColdFire platform to boot from ? Please be informed that at this stage I am not restricted to use an specific Linux distro and just I need to have the minimum kernel image possible size.
