May 6, 2010

I installed the most current version of generic kernel. After that, I restart my computer and try to use the latest installed kernel. Then, the laptop freeze. Then, I restart my computer by turning off and on again, select the older kernel, successfully boot into Ubuntu to post this thread. What can I do since I am required to test the latest generic kernel?

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

Sep 2, 2010

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?

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!)

Slackware :: Switch To The Generic Kernel?

Jun 15, 2011

One thing I always do is switch to the vmlinuz-generic(-smp) kernel in /etc/lilo.conf and build an initrd (see /boot/README.initrd for details). The "huge" kernel used by default is only meant for installing and not recommended for everyday use. It has a lot of drivers you don't need built-in and uses more RAM than the "generic" kernels.

still trying to find my feet and get to know Slackware. In one of my previous threads, 'things to do after installing' i was told the above message. When i installed, it used the huge kernel, but i'm unsure if that was the one that got installed. when i start slackware up, above the login screen it say, �wecome to Linux (tty1)� I was wondering how to swich to the generic smp kernel, do I just change the vmlinuz to the desired, in lilo?

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 :: 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...

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 -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
label = Linux-Generic

Slackware :: How Good Is The Generic Kernel At Using New Hardware

I am going to change my hardware soon, just a new motherboard and cpu, same sound card,gfx card and other stuff. Will it boot and run ok ( like a live cd/dvd) until I have time to do a reinstall or does it have specific ports the hardware is installed on now?

Slackware :: 13.37rc2 Btrfs With Generic Kernel

Mar 20, 2011

I was interested in the idea of the btrfs subvolumes, so I made a virtual machine and installed Slackware as per the instructions here: [URL] It all went very well, but when I tried to switch from the huge kernel to the generic kernel and use the initrd.gz generated from step 29 (except that I used instead of whatever's there) in lilo.conf, it failed to boot. I also noticed that in the instructions themselves, the poster doesn't actually add the initrd.gz to lilo.conf, so I'm guess the huge kernel has everything it needs to boot properly.

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.

Slackware :: How To Modify Grub To Boot Using Generic Kernel

Feb 16, 2011

My Slackware boots using the huge kernel. I am not using LILO; I am using GRUB from the extras directory on the DVD. I followed the tutorial @ [URL] up to the point where it discusses modifying LILO. My /boot/grub/menu.lst reads, in part:

# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Slackware Linux on (/dev/sda7)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda7 ro vga=normal
# Linux bootable partition config ends

This boots the huge kernel. What changes must I make to the above menu.lst entry to boot using the generic kernel?
