Ubuntu :: Updates Crashed Now Cannot Install New Kernels

Aug 5, 2010

Couple weeks ago my automatic update did not finished properly. It crashed (I'm not sure about the reason). Since then, I'm not able to see installed new kernels in my computers. I can see them in Synaptic package manager as installed but I do not see them when I reboot. I would like to see them and try them.

Ubuntu :: 10.x Install Crashed After Automatic Updates?

Aug 7, 2011

My 10.x install crashed after automatic updates. So I installed the latest version after none of the "help" helped.Anyway in 11.04 I can no longer put icons on my desktop or find icons to start tasks I need like a terminal window for example. Wine doesn't even know it is wine anymore. Nothing is intuitive or automatic.Is there a simple way to find all the stuff or is this version set back to eliminate cometition with apple and windows. I really enjoyed how useful ubuntu was and need the speed and usefulness back like right now.

Ubuntu :: Portable USB Fails Configuring The Updates Kernels

Sep 1, 2011

I've a permanent USB running natty. Synaptic would like to upgrade the kernel packages, but it fails with cryptsetup failure.


How can I get around this? Is it enough if I remove cryptsetup? AFAIK, my devices are not encrypted (at least /etc/crypttab) is empty).

General :: Ubuntu Crashed While Installing Updates

Sep 29, 2010

This is my first tryst with linux, so this might seem to be a very trivial problem: While installing updates for ubuntu 9.04, there was an unexpected crash saying that 'E:dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run sudo dpkg--configure-a' to correct the problem. When I tried to follow the instruction, it said that sudo could not be found. Is this a directory problem? If yes, how do I rectify it?

General :: Removing Previous Older Kernels 'vmlinuz' When Updates Get Newer Versions

Mar 30, 2010

Is removing previous older kernels "vmlinuz", when updates do get a newer version an easy task, or do the more recent Linux like Ubuntu 9.10 do that automatically, and only keep a few older previous kernels ?

General :: Computer Crashed After Updates - Multiple Flavors Of Installed ?

Jan 6, 2010

Trying to help brother whose computer quit working after he downloaded updates. Don't know Linux lingo but it looks to me like he has multiple flavors of Linux running: Gnome, ubuntu, xbuntu, kbuntu - probably more I've forgotten.

He knew nothing about computers at all and inherited a build-it-yourself computer kit that someone was throwing away. It came with a CD of Linux software. By trial and error he made it run and has managed to do some amazing things with photos and graphic design. But he downloads and launches EVERYTHING that suggests itself to him. Sometimes a thousand files at a time.

Now his machine boots but won't run any apps. It keeps giving him a message that he needs to "manually run" some "dpkg-something" but he doesn't know how to get to any sort of root or command prompt where he can enter a manual command. All he knows how to do is click icons. He's clicked them all. Now his computer is continually running screen after screen of programming language.

Is there any hope? Can we reinstall an OS without losing all of his files of graphics work? Which OS should he use on a fairly old and slow machine if his main (only?) use is graphic design?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Updates Returns To Main Window Without Installing Updates

Mar 24, 2011

For some reason Update Manager is not installing updates as of yesterday.I have it set to check daily and notify if updates are available. It has been working without issues for well over a year now.

Update Manager tells me updates are available and presents the list of security, recommended, and other updates. All are selected to update, but when I select Install Updates in Update Manager it returns with a Reading Package Information window overlaid on the main Update Manager window - building dependency tree then reading state information and dumps me back to the main Update Manager window without performing any update actions.

Ubuntu :: Did Karmic Install Two Kernels On Your System?

Apr 13, 2010

After I upgraded Jaunty to Karmic, I found that my grub menu has two pairs of OS options and that the kernel is slightly different between the two. The highest numbered kernel seems to be a working OS release but the next choice in the list does not work correctly - its mouse pointer is invisible!I originally had installed Intrepid in a partition and I used it for a while. Then I decided to upgrade to Jaunty so I put that release in a different partition. I had major troubles getting the system going after the upgrade but I eventually succeeded.Later, I decided to try out Karmic so I created a Live CD of it and tested that. It seemed to be good so I decided to do a standard upgrade. At this point I still had the original Intrepid version on disk in its own partition. The release notes suggested that a network upgrade was the preferred way to upgrade to Karmic so I did that, even though I had the CD. The process seemed to complete OK. I was getting some X windows complaints and X was running in low graphics mode so I uninstalled and reinstalled the fglrx driver; X was happy afterwards. That seemed to be the only significant problem with the upgrade.I noticed that my grub menu now had three fairly new selection pairs, as well as the memtest and the original Intrepid software. I had gained two pairs during the Karmic upgrade. I could not tell which was which by the kernel numbers. I decided that three sets were inappropriate and I decided to remove one set. I was hoping to remove whichever set was superfluous or unnecessary. I picked the oldest of the three (i.e., the one with the smallest kernel number) and used Synaptic to abolish it.

Now, I had two pairs left. The topmost pair is a working Karmic version which I am using right now. The other pair seems to be a broken version of Karmic. By that, I mean that it starts up exactly the same as the working version but when it gets to the login screen then there is no cursor! Actually, the cursor is there but it is invisible. I found that I could run the cursor all the way to the top right corner, click the left mouse button, and get the shutdown/restart/etc. menu. The keyboard's arrow keys could then be used to select a menu item and the mouse button would activate it. But all the while, the cursor was invisible! Of course, this makes the system useless.So, I think that I need to use Synaptic to remove the malfunctioning pair. Questions: why did the upgrade give me two kernels? Would it be safe to remove the earlier one?What I would really like is to have both Karmic and Jaunty available from the grub menu. I am afraid that I will have to do a new install in a different partition to get Jaunty back onto the system, and then will have to repeat all of the customizing and software installations that I have applied during the last year or so. Does anyone know of a shortcut around that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Install Nvidia Proprietary Driver For Two Kernels

May 26, 2010

I am using the most recent ubuntu kernel (2.6.32-22-generic) for general stuff, and a real time kernel (2.6.31-10-rt) for music recording. Everything was working fine under Karmic.

When I upgraded to 10.04, I had problems with my Nvidia video card, so I uninstalled everying related to Nvidia. And reinstalled the driver using the installer script from the Nvidia website.

I can install the driver for one kernel, but when I boot on the other, it says my X config does not work, and I am back to a low-res no-effect display.

If I then try to reinstall the driver under that kernel, then the first one stops working with the Nvidia driver.

OpenSUSE Install :: Set The System To Keep Multiple Kernels ?

Oct 27, 2010

I can't find the place to set the system to keep multiple kernels. For the first time in a long time, updates are giving me grief. I've kept the last working nvidia driver in case I need it.

Now I would like to keep one old kernel when I update to the new one. I had a lab rat that never got rid of old kernels and that was too much. It is possible to keep the last working kernel when you update, isn't it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Authoritative Source On 11.3 Kernels?

Nov 20, 2010

OpenSuSE 11.3 i686

Installation used default options. Discovered that my "standard" Desktop kernel isn't likely PAE enabled... Have had various FF windows open for a long time even with no network connection which resulted in memory leaks (understandable). Eventually the machine slowed to a crawl with numerous FF processes running (each about 8% of CPU) and 4GB memory map (4GB physical RAM) exhausted but surprisingly the 2GB swap was totally untouched. Searching the Forums there are numerous anecdotal opinions that PAE should be or was enabled automatically at least for Desktop kernels. Viewing the OpenSuSE repository, there are kernel-pae packages for this kernel version which aren't installed.

So before I start installing packages willy-nilly, is there an authoritative published source that documents what is is in an OpenSuSE kernel package, and what combination of packages plus if necessary additional manual configurations to achieve desired goals? BTW - I'm somewhat surprised that today PAE is not automatically included in today's kernels considering how cheap hardware is... I don't know if PAE typically should be a noticeable performance hit on low resource machines(like netbooks) and would be necessary for anything configured with more than 4GB total (physical plus swap) memory.

OpenSUSE Install :: Difference Between Default And Desktop Kernels?

Jan 9, 2010

Is there a description of the features and differences between the Desktop and Default kernels? Did "Desktop" arrive with 11.2 and 2.6.31? I did not notice it at first. I loaded 11.2 on a desktop machine and both default and desktop kernels were loaded to system, with Desktop set as default in grub. I have been working thru several "strange" behaviors ever since loading 11.2. At the top of my list has been the ability to shutdown the system from remote logins. I normally connect to the system via a Xwindows package (Xmanager). X works fine and I could shutdown via the GUI (Application Launcher - Leave-Shutdown).

When connected via a remote ssh link, either from a windows machine or a different linux machine, attempts to shutdown (shutdown -H now) send the expected messages, close the remote connections but leave the system still powered on but in a no-remote-connectivity state. When I upgraded to KDE 4.3.4 following the Forum Repository guidelines, I could no longer shutdown via the GUI. In searching about, I found that the Desktop kernel was running. Changed grub, rebooted under default, shutdown under GUI works again. So, for starters, I am trying to decide which kernel environment (default or desktop) should be my target for continuing to work thru issues.

OpenSUSE Install :: Official Repository For Newer Kernels?

May 12, 2010

Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.

Ubuntu :: Install 11.04 - Installer Crashed Saying Something About An Input / Output Error

Apr 28, 2011

So, I recently installed, or.. ermm.. Tried to install Ubuntu 11.04, I did it with a CD. This is about my 4th time around with Ubuntu, so I'm not completely new to it. But, I used to have Windows 7 on here, and I decided I wanted to go with Ubuntu, so I downloaded and burned the CD, and did all the stuff you need to do to install Ubuntu. I got far into the installation, and then the installer crashed saying something about an Input/Output error, and it could be the CD being dirty or damaged.

Now, I'm stuck with a broken operating system because I chose to replace my Windows 7 partion with Ubuntu, and there's no terminal! Everything else seems to be here, it's just really buggy, and I can't get much of anything installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Crashed On "Try", Install Freezes On Creating Ext4 Fs, 11.04 Sux0r?

May 5, 2011

I burned my liveCD very slowly and checked it for integrity. It works fine on, for example, my dell inspiron 1012 netbook.

I am able to create the partitions etc and am shooting for a win7 dual boot. Don't want wubi or the like.

I am unable to boot the liveCD or even install the OS as it hangs on clicking "Try" and the install hangs on "Creating ext4 fs on / "

Also the 11.04 CD seems to have a lot of issues based on my browsing the top few pages of the forum.

Ubuntu :: Community Repo Updates / Canonical Does Not Provide Updates For Warsow?

Dec 20, 2010

I just learned that warsow 0.6 is out, and went to see if it was available in the ubuntu software center yet, as opposed to going and downloading and installing it manually from the warsow website. The ubuntu repo's still have version 0.5, and at the bottom of the page it says:

"Updates: Canonical does not provide updates for Warsow. Some updates may be provided by the Ubuntu community."

So if I wanted to 'update' this item in the repo's for the better of the community what would that entail?

Ubuntu :: Removing Updates From Updates Manager List

Jan 29, 2011

There are some updates in the Update Manager list which I do not install. Among them, some drivers for HP Printers (I don't know why this cropped up; I don't even use printers on my laptop), and gcj updates (I use gcc/g++ but not gcj). I unchecked them the first time I saw them on my UM list. However, for every subsequent batch of new updates, UM retains these updates and I need to uncheck them every time. How can I remove them totally from my UM list?
