Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-23-generic-pae Breaks Fglrx

Jun 30, 2010

I have an ATI radeon HD 3400 series video card, and the open-source drivers make my computer run really hot. I tried installing FGLRX by using "Check For New Hardware Drivers", but it did not work, so I installed the ATI catalyst 10.5 package from AMD's website, and am using Xserver-xorg-core-1.7.6-2ubuntu7+backclear1 from k0ekk0ek's PPA so there is no lag when minimizing windows and such.

Everything was perfect until the 2.6.32-23 kernel update came along. I let it update, and rebooted, but the ATI driver no longer starts, even when I uninstall and reinstall it.

I am just using the 2.6.32-22 kernel for now, as the 2.6.32-23 kernel still runs hot without the ATI driver enabled. I would like to start using the new kernel at some point...

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Use Nvidia With Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-23-generic

Jun 30, 2010

Upgraded to latest kernel 2.6.32-23. Ubuntu 10.04 I run a twinview video configuration of 2 screens @ 1920x1200. On booting, X wanted to go to low res for the session, which reverted to one screen (that is, I lost the twin view), but actually kept the 1920x1200 res on the one. I restarted X on got both screen working with the second as a replica of the first. Something has changed in this version of the kernel. Reverted to the previous Kernel version (22) and all is sweet (twin view is back working). But this can only be a temporary workaround.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Kernel Upgrade Breaks Nvidia Driver?

Jul 19, 2011

I've just installed Lucid Lynx on both my machines in the interest of sitting and waiting for the Unity/Gnome 3 storm to blow over. On the HP (see below), everything works great, and I've followed instructions online on how to upgrade to LibreOffice, upgrade the kernel to 2.6.38 using the kernel PPA, etc.

However, on the IBM, I'm using Nvidia proprietary graphics drivers. These work well on the stock kernel that 10.04 installed (2.6.32-32), but installing 2.6.38 seems to break the driver. If I install the driver first, and then the kernel on top, X stops working and I have to revert to the default, generic driver to get back in. Once there, I cannot install the driver again. The Additional Drivers dialog goes through the motions, but then drops a "systemerror: installarchives() failed" error message.

So, is there a different version of the driver I should be trying to install? I should clarify at this point I tried all three options the Additional Drivers dialog provided me, all gave the same result (version 96, version 173, and version current).

Or should I leave the kernel at 2.6.32? Is there any downside to leaving it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-23-generic Broke My LVM - RAID And GRUB

Jul 4, 2010

I recently updated the kernel to the newest version(2.6.32-23-generic) using the update manager and now I am unable to boot in to my Lucid installation.

My setup is LVM on top of a RAID 0 array. My computer had been running in this configuration since Lucid was released.

The Error Code I get on Boot is to the effect of: /dev/mapper/ubuntu-os is not available.. and then I get kicked in to Busy Box.

Once in Busy Box if I try to use mdadm to mount the RAID array I get this error:

If I boot in to the live CD I can mount all of the partitions and LVM volumes, so it does not appear to be a failed drive or volume.

I have looked in the mdadm.conf, lvm config and grub config files and searched the "Google" for an answer with no-avail...

Ultimately I would like to find a solution which doesn't involve a re-installation.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fglrx Needs To Be Reinstalled After Every Kernel Upgrade

Feb 17, 2011

Every time the update-manager decides to upgrade the kernel my graphics driver is ****** up. I have had this problem in 10.04 and now in 10.10. Now I get dropped to the command prompt after an upgrade (I can also log in with fail-safe/low graphics mode). The problem is solved if I reinstall the package fglrx so nog big issue but it is rather annoying. What could be wrong? I am using ATI HD4770. I haven't tried open drivers yet.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Always Boots Kernel

Jan 9, 2011

I just noticed I'm not running with the latest kernel.

This box was originally installed as Ubuntu 10.04, then upgraded to 10.10.

I just recently noticed that, even though kernel 2.6.35-24-generic is installed, this box seems to insist on booting up with 2.6.32-24-generic.

Looking at /boot/menu.lst, it looks ok. (default is 0, and first kernel in list is 2.6.35-24. 2.5.32-24 is the *last* one in the list!)

It seems that updating the Kernel breaks my installation. I've tried it twice, and both times it disabled my gui desktop. I'm posting this with links2 in my terminal. The terminal works perfectly.

This is really annoying, as I can't even use my computer. What do you think is the problem?

Ubuntu Installation :: Why Would Generic Kernel Be Installed From Server 9.10 Cd?

I installed Ubutnu 9.10 Server on my Dell Server for LAMP & OpenSSH server. After the install was complete, I noticed the the kernel installed on the server was 2.26.31-14-generic instead of 2.26.31-14-server.I am wondering why would generic kernel be installed from ubuntu-server 9.10 cd? And how do go about chaning to server kernel? Or do I even need to do that? Would generic kernel work as server kernel ?

Ubuntu Installation :: FGLRX Status On 10.04 Upgrade Warning?

Oct 17, 2010

I am running 8.04 on a Toshiba Satellite A100 laptop. (My Toshiba model is unfortunately the one with the Phoenux BIOS)I have been happy with 8.04 LTS for quite some time now and was thinking of upgrading to 10.04 LTS, which the Update Manager says is available. I normally choose to upgrade a few months after release once things have stabilised a bit. I figured it was now time for 10.04.I accordingly have first taken all the updates for 8.04 and brought it up-to-date. Then when I click on Upgrade, I get the following messageUpgrading may reduce desktop effects and performance in games and other graphically intensive programs.This computer is currently using the AMD 'fglrx' graphics driver. No version of this driver is available that works with your hardwarein Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Do you want to continue ?Since I wasn't sure of the exact entire implications, I said NO and exit the upgrade at that point.I then googled a bit and found this to be a pretty serious installation issue with a number of people who unfortunately have ATI display cards.But then I came across this page:Does the above link mean that this problem is now solved with respect to 10.04 as well ?Also, if not, what are the implications for me ? Does this mean I have to be stuck on 8.04 only ?If I choose to upgrade anyway, what display functionality will I lose ?I don't need Desktop Effects or other toys. But I do use GIMP quite a bit and also watch videos in multiple formats. Will I not be able to do these ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Natty Upgrade Breaks Unity On Netbook

Apr 15, 2011

X is working, I get a desktop, all updates are current, just no Unity menus/window/widgets/whatever, blank desktop with single mapped network folder and no working keyboard shortcuts after initial login. I upgraded on Alpha 2 and it ate my desktop, never has given it back for 3 months. I assumed eventually the upgrades would fix it. Looked into ditching Unity and doing GDM, but thought I'd wait it out, ran dpkg-reconfigure unity and it did nothing, can't find any relevant errors in the logs, where should I be looking and/or what should I be doing? Running lots of servers on this box and have dual-boot, otherwise I'd probably torch it and start over.

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove ATI/AMD Proprietary FGLRX Driver Before Doing An Upgrade From 9.10 To 10.04?

Debian Installation :: Upgrade To Lenny Breaks The Printer

Feb 11, 2010

I just upgraded to lenny (stable) from a working etch system. It went pretty nicely but I'm having a problem with the print system.

Ok, I have an HP Laserjet 4M+ connected to my system by USB. (I have another color printer too and a scanner but I don't use them often).

I use CUPS. I never bothered with the HPLIP packages because straight cups has always worked well.

What happens now is that I'll send a job to the printer and nothing will happen. The printer won't get it. Looking at CUPS on the localhost:631 page I can see that the printer is on, connected, ready; the job is there too but just stuck on "processing".

Now here's the thing. If I manually load the ehci_hcd module with "modprobe ehci_hcd" then the job will make it to the printer and it will print.

I can't just make that module load at boot time because if I do and the printer is off, it doesn't work. (I have to unload it and reload it). For whatever reason, I have to make sure that module gets loaded AFTER the printer is turned on, or nothing gets sent to the printer!

Fedora Installation :: FC14 Upgrade Breaks X, Nouveau/nvidia?

My system with kernel-, NVIDIA 3800 + Samsung 2233 and 3Dvision kit works fine, but upon upgrading to kernel- the system won't go past the blue->white bar along the screen. The modprobe.d directory has the file blacklisting nouveau and there is the grub entry rdblacklist=nouveau, but do I need to re-run the nvidia installer. If so I think I need to reset the init level to stop X11 trying to load. and will I need to keep doing this everytime I upgrade the kernel if I have nvidia drivers installed?

Ubuntu :: Fglrx 8.780 - Kernel 2.6.35-25 ?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a HP Pavillion dv5 laptop with an ATI Mobility Radeon 4200 series. It always worked fine with Ubuntu for as long as I can remember. However, at one point, something happened and truly made a majestic mess of things. It might've been extra repos I enabled with Ubuntu Tweak - I do not know. But something made it so that my system would not boot any longer.

And when I say "won't boot", this is what I mean:

- Durning a normal bootup, any entries (except Windows) selected with GRUB (or BURG, not even sure which one I'm using anymore) will spawn the Ubuntu loading screen.

- then try to start X (or GDM) 5 times. The screen goes to dark, black and back to the Ubuntu loading screen. Then it just stays there until I spawn another TTY.

I have no idea what is happening or why. There are no errors in my logs, and I'm truly at a loss here.

I've linked three files: Xorg.0.log, the output of dmesg and the GDM log:

Ubuntu :: Kernel 2.6.35-30-generic & Gnome 2.32.0?

Jun 27, 2011

Just installed the patches/upgrades for the kernel. Ubuntu will not boot without me typing "y" and hitting enter and later hitting the enter key again. Just have a blank screen unless I do this. Discovered what to do by booting into recovery mode. Had to make a display selection. Just guess at the enter key the second time the boot process stopped. I new to Ubuntu so don't know where to look in the logs to provide additional information to help trouble shoot the problem. If some one can guide me as to where to look I'll post log info. Hope this is the right place to post this. If I need to make a bug report let me know.

Forgot to add: HP Pavalion dv5000 (dv5020us to be specific). AMD Turion64 processor. ATI Radeon Mobility 200M video.

Ubuntu :: NVidia On Mint With Kernel 2.6.32-24-generic

I installed Mint 9 and directly after installation there were updates to download and install, which I did. One of the updates is a newer kernel, 2.6.32-24-generic.
When I manually install the nVidia driver 256.44 and restart gdm it works. When I reboot I land in low resolution, have to remove and re-install the older (195.36) driver through "Hardware Drivers". Somehow the new kernel and the latest nVidia don't match together. Am I the only one suffering from this or are there more people with this problem,and what to do about it?
