Ubuntu :: Update Manager Downloaded New Kernel - GNU Grub On Restart

Jan 15, 2010

I run Ubuntu and yesterday the update manager downloaded a new kernel I think. It asked me to restart. I unlike before where when I select Ubuntu at boot up time and it just goes into it I am getting this black screen called GNU GRUB. What do I do here? Has Linux got corrupted by the updates I downloaded?

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Not Restart 10.4 Update After Broken Download

May 2, 2010

I started the upgrade to 10.4 from 9.10 through the update manager. It started the update to 10.4. After downloading almost 95% of the update, it gave an error message of "could not download certain components. downloaded files will not be erased" and stopped the update. I restarted the PC, and started the update manager again. But now it does not show any option of update to 10.4. how do I continue or resume the update process? I just started using ubuntu about 15 days back. So, I am relatively new to this.

After lots of searching last night I noticed that over the last couple of days there have been quite a few posts of people receiving the error: no such device lots of numbers grub rescue>. I have a dual boot vista/ubuntu setup with ubuntu on my d: drive and windows on my c: drive and it happened to me last night. So after my freaking out when I received the grub rescue> error after updating somethings in my ubuntu install and restarting. Once the computer rebooted bam! error. after much freaking it only fixed itself by reinstalling the windows bootloader via the vista rescue disk I was wondering if there was a way to prevent this from happening again? will ubuntu attempt to "update" itself again?

Ubuntu :: Kernel Update From Update Manager?

Feb 5, 2010

I received an update to my kernel through the update manager (updated from ****.32.14 to ****.32.19, or something like that) but grub still shows the old kernel and not the updated one. Was this not a full kernel update and only a patch or do I have to do something to use the new kernel? I'm new bear with me if this doesn't make any sense.

Ubuntu :: No Bootloader After Kernel Update - Update-grub Hangs

Dec 1, 2010

Ran the updater, went to boot to Win7 to use Photoshop and realized that the grub menu was gone. Ubuntu boots by default now. I tried running "sudo update-grub" at a virtual terminal and while it listed the various linux kernels ok, it then got caught in a loop spitting out some crazy looking errors. I rebooted and Ubuntu came up fine. I tried running "sudo update-grub" again from the gnome terminal and it hangs the whole computer for a few minutes and finally gives me this:

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Manager Freezes On Grub Configuration?

May 14, 2010

IBM ThinkPad X61
Windows Vista Home
Wubi Ubuntu Karmic

I tried to upgrade to Lucid Linx while in Karmic Koala but the installation process froze while doing something with "memtest86+". CTRL-C got it to unfreeze and finish the installation but on a restart when I chose the Ubuntu OS it kept restarting rather than booting. I decided to start fresh.

So I booted into Vista and uninstalled Wubi Karmic Koala and proceeded to do a fresh install of Wubi Lucid Lynx. The installation, including the reboot, went smoothly. However, when the Update Manager was installing software a new screen popped up saying this:

Window Content:
[Title:] Debconf on Ubuntu
[Message:] Configuring grub-pc
[Checkbox:] Continue without installing Grub? (unchecked)
[Help button: explains consequences of not installing grub]
[Back button] (greyed out)
[Forward button]

So I leave the checkbox unchecked and click on forward. Nothing happens. All the Update Manager windows remain the same and nothing changes when I hit the Forward button. The "Applying Changes" window is stuck at "Setting up grub-pc (1.98-1ubuntu6) ...".

Can I safely force quit the Update Manager installation? Why am I getting that message about Grub? I didn't choose anything like that.

Ubuntu Installation :: Black GRUB Screen After Update Manager Run?

Sep 3, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on dell inspiron 5150. Original installation was perfect. Wireless Internet worked right away. Screen resolution was perfect. One day, after a month or so, after original installation I got a notification that new updates are available. So, I installed all updates. At the end there was a notification: Update is successful, please reboot. After reboot I got a black screen with the header:

GNU GRUB version 1.98-1ubuntu7(I hope it's not a ubuntu version of windows blue death screen). I could install 10.04 from scratch, but I can not do it after every update.

Ubuntu :: After Update Grub Can't Find The Kernel

Feb 5, 2010

I had Windoze 7 on my wife's laptop, it started running crappy so I install Ubuntu 9.10 via Wubi (so it is not a partitioned dual-boot). I did the latest update, which I think included a kernel update. When I rebooted and chose Ubuntu from the windows dual boot window, instead of loading the GRUB I see an error message flash:


TRY hd0: NTFS no Wubi(something-or-other)

it flashed almost too fast for me to catch - it took about 10 reboots to figure out that much... and then it goes to a screen that says


GNU GRUB version 1.97~beta4

I tried several different commands (you can prompt it to give you available commands by hitting TAB), but it said it couldn't detect a kernel. Also, before I updated, I had tried to install iTunes via these instructions. iTunes seemed to have installed fine, but I hadn't tried it yet.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Update Not Available For Kernel 2.6.38

May 15, 2011

After upgrading Maverick (perfect!) to Natty, I was unable to boot into anything. (kernel 2.6.38). However, through much PITA, I was able to boot into an older kernel. (2.6.35). I completely removed 2.6.38, rebooted, reinstalled it and ran update-grub. However, 2.6.38 is no longer available no matter how many times I run update-grub, and the only option left is 2.6.35. In my humble opinion, the Natty upgrade experience is rubbish. (blank screen, total PC hangs, boots into a blank screen with only a blinking cursor, NVIDIA official driver not working, bootable only into older kernels etc.)

Ubuntu :: Grub.cfg Overriden On Kernel Update?

Jun 13, 2011

On my laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 I have edited /boot/grub/grub.cfg in order for the shortcut keys for changing brightness and volume to work. I added


at the end of every kernel image line, and it works ok. The only problem is that every kernel update overrides the grub.cfg and therefore I have to reedit the file over and over again. So the question is, where could I put the mentioned kernel startup parameter, so that it doesn't get lost on every kernel update.

Ubuntu :: Windows OS Disappeard From Grub After Kernel Update

Jan 12, 2010

I'm running a dual boot Vista/Ubuntu Jaunty. I made some changes to the grab menu so that my windows OS would appear at the top of the list .I know I could have changed the default so that Vista would have been highlighted instead of Jaunty. But the reason I moved it to the top is because when I do a kernel update, I would still want Vista to be the default booting OS. Anyways, after the update my Vista OS disappeared from grub. It didn't get deleted because the Vista partition is still accessible from Jaunty. Can anyone help me boot into Vista and preferably make it the default OS even after a Kernel update? I attached part of my menu.lst .

Ubuntu Installation :: After Update - Grub Won't Boot Says Kernel Missing

Jan 9, 2010

I used the update manager to update the kernel and whatever the other recommended updates were yesterday. I shut the computer down overnight and now when i try to boot into Ubuntu 9.10 i get a basic grub shell and when i try commands like "boot" it tells me there is no kernel loaded. I installed Ubuntu with Wubi so it is a dual boot system.

I've tried to access the Linux volume with a live OpenSuse 11 CD but there is no device to mount. It sees the entire hard-drive as if it hasn't been partitioned. I don't necessarily need to fix the installation. I just need to get my files back.

Ubuntu :: UPDATE-GRUB Is Hanging - Preventing Kernel And Other Upgrades

I have some pending upgrades, one of which includes kernel 2.6.32-22 but whenever the upgrade gets to running the update-grub command, it gets stuck on "Found memtest86+..." Here's the actual output...


It's been hanging like this for hours today, preventing me from getting any of the pending upgrades. I've cancelled it several times, deleted the dpkg lock files and tried it again only to have it hang all over again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Ran An Update And On Reboot Get A Kernel Panic Error

Mar 24, 2011

I have a new acer machine which runs fine on 10.10 mythbuntu desktop livecd. Install seemed fine.

Then I ran an update and on reboot I get a kernel panic error. Research on this reveals it as a very deep subject which can consume many hours, so I opted to reinstall.

This time with ubuntu 10.10. I've tried different CDs, liveusb. Same errors.

So, the question is this - where do I concentrate my efforts - somewhere ubuntu doesn't like this machine, or grub. Does a reinstall overwrite the grub install too? Or do I have a bogus grub install I need to purge before I will get anywhere.

I have manually added an entry for Ubuntu in my grub menu, using Yast. But every time the kernel is updated, this entry disappears. On the other hand, the one for Windows, that was added during OpenSuse's installation, is still there. So how can I keep this entry for Ubuntu ?

Edit : when I save the menu configuration in Yast, I get the following message :
