When using Ubuntu debian packaged kernels, I build arm64 kernels much like the following (you should be able to substitute arm64 for the armhf arch specific flags that match your target and cross-compiler). export ARCH=arm64 export $(dpkg-architecture -aarm64); export CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- fakeroot debian/rules clean debian/rules build fakeroot ...

Plug in the device lsblk to find the device name of your usb device. Naming is /dev/sdXY. Where X is any english letter and Y is integer, typically 1. If the device was mounted, you will see the mountpoint, for example: NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sdb 8:0 1 15.2G 0 disk └─sdb1 8:1 1 15.2G 0 part /media/me/...

Let me share my experience with Dell Inspiron 7559 + Windows 10. First I had Windows 10 GPT (UEFI) preinstalled. Had the same splash screen freezing problem. Overcame it by specifying acpi=off kernel parameter (same as you did with nomodeset, but that didn't work for me, whereas acpi=off worked). I think I would be able to install Ubuntu then. But I ...

When checking what my previous version was, I noticed I had several kernel versions. So I went to clear them out. I was a little overzealous, and accidentally deleted ALL of them. Once I broke my install to where it wouldn't boot, I started up the live USB and reinstalled 3.16.0-43 generic and 3.16.0-41, but missed the timing to get into grub. So I booted ...

You can add kernel parameters in the Grub boot menu (which I assume is provided when you boot from CD). The following is from the top of my head and may not be totally accurate, so read the hints on the screen, too: When the Grub boot menu appears press the letter 'e' to change the selected boot option. Select the long line with the kernel parameters (the ...

Your processor is affected by the c-state bug which causes total freezes when the CPU tries to enter an unsupported sleep state. It's a problem for many Bay Trail devices especially with newer (4.*) kernels. There is a simple workaround for this until it gets properly fixed upstream. You just need to pass a kernel boot parameter and the random freezing ...

With only 3MB free, none of the elegant solutions above were effective. Deleting files in /boot was required first. I removed the oldest kernel files and proceeded with sudo apt-get -f install.

Try booting from a bootable usb stick or recovery CD then try to find problems or repair disk. If you happen to be using a bootable USB then I would recommend having a look at what "disks" and "Gparted" bring up as issues. After that post what happened and any output errors so that the community can help.

Make a bootoble Ubuntu cd using another computer, plug it in, start your system from USB and select "Try Ubuntu without Installing" from bootloader menu. From there, you can use Ubuntu to recover your files using Ubuntu's file manager. Plug another USB or hard disk or a usb and copy your files there perhaps. Or if you've unmounted your sda1 partition (you ...

GRUB obviously needs, and uses, drivers in order to access files stored on a RAID. For example if you use a mdadm software RAID, you will see insmod mdraid09 in your grub.cfg.

There are two entries on line 38 of your /etc/default/grub.cfg that end up being merged into one variable: GRUB_FONT="/boot/grub/unicode.pf2"GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=None You need to add a line break after the 2nd quotation mark (") before GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX, or, since the resulting entry would be an exact duplicate of line 39, you can just delete that ...

This seems to be an issue related to drivers not working starting with Ubuntu's 3.19.0-65 kernel. This is caused by a change made by Canonical whereby kernel and kernel driver signing is now being enforced when secure boot is enabled. During the update process, when a pop-up box asked me to review the secure boot settings, I left them as they were (enabled, ...

The packages linux-headers-3.13.0-86 and linux-headers-3.13.0-86-generic have been removed. But neither of them contains any file in /boot/ so removing them didn't help here. After removing the two packages apt tried to continue the pending installation of the packages linux-image-extra-4.2.0-41-generic and initramfs-tools which failed as there's still no ...

it's me as well experiencing the same issue. Seems like an issue with the 3.19.0-65 kernel. After some mucking around I simply switched back to 3.19.0-64 by pressing ESC on boot to see GRUB's menu enter "Ubuntu options" select Kernel 3.19.0-64-generic tadaaa

You can find out what software packages contain a specific file (or directory) using the command dpkg -S /PATH/TO/FILE_OR_DIRECTORY This only works for installed packages and only for files/directories that are contained in the package. It does not recognize files/directories that were created by the installation scripts or later by the running ...

You are correct. The Canonical Kernel Team has enabled EFI_SECURE_BOOT_SIG_ENFORCE in the new 3.19 Ubuntu kernel. That prevents from loading unsigned 3rd party kernel modules. It looks like there is a script with GUI that is supposed to help to disable Secure Boot. It did not work in your case. It depends on specific UEFI implementation in your computer. ...

If you want to have periodic check, say on every restart or every Tuesday of the month, you could set up a cron job, that calls your backup script, and you could check the filesystem usage within your backup script itself.

I have exactly the same issue. I run 14.04 on a 2016 XPS 13 Developer-Edition, and after this morning's update the network menu does not contain any wireless device. Wired connection is working fine.

To close this thread: I've booted 16.04 from DVD and directed the install process to an USB key of 15.9 GByte which was visible for the installer as sdb. The installation went fine on the 3rd try.

The error: "kernel: intel_soc_dts_thermal: request_threaded_irq ret -22" comes from the Intel SoC DTS Thermal driver.

This is not a bug, it is a feature. As Anthony Wong says, when you install a DKMS package you are compiling the package yourself, thus, Canonical cannot sign the module for you. However, you can definitely use Secure Boot, however this is exactly the use case where Secure Boot is trying to protect you from yourself because it cannot know whether you trust ...

New Answer: I realised that just editing that file won't work at least for me, for some reason the changes had been reverted. You can do this if you want: startup Ubuntu on your older kernel (via grub boot selection menu) and download Grub Customiser, Go to "General settings" tab and select the older kernel boot "predefined:" under "default entry". Save ...

For 14.04 users who upgraded to 16.04, the 3.19 kernel (installed by 14.04) appears to remain usable. By similar reasoning, a 3.13 kernel may work as well even though it is not officially supported on the newer os (16.04). You will need to download the relevant packages and install them manually via dpkg.

Kernel load time isn't that much affected by using a SSD. It's a small file that gets decompressed to RAM and then runs from there. What is probably taking time is hardware initialization, not I/O. Check dmesg messages and see if you can find any hardware that is taking that long to init, 12 seconds is indeed slow for current hardware. What is your CPU? ...

@brianjcohen led me in the right direction. The Bug report on chromium had some good discussions on some background on the issue, but apparently it's somewhat of an x.org issue with Intel driver options.

I made the same mistake and here is what worked for me (with a cable connection): In a terminal, run the command: dpkg -l | grep linux-image-.*-generic Select the kernel version you want to reinstall and run (typing the actual version instead of 4.X.Y-ZZ): sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-4.X.Y-ZZ-generic

It looks like the linux-image-4.4.8-040408 has been manually installed without using Debian packaging. Boot with 4.4.0-28 kernel selected from the grub menu, then manually delete the 4.4.8 kernel files from /boot. Then run sudo update-grub

Before running apt-get install -f see if the postinst script of the kernel package completes its setup. To do this type: sudo /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-extra-4.4.0-21-generic.postinst configure This should complete the postinst process before trying to remove the package, I think.

So I haven't had a lot of luck making this work yet, but this is how I was able to get the appropriate kernel source from the git repository. It requires a little trial and error, but it seemed to work for me.

Yes, 16.04 should be compatible with 3.19 since it would be used in 14.04, which can be upgraded to 16.04. Some people are still using 3.19 due to issues such as https://github.com/vmware/open-vm-tools/issues/74 eldamir was able to manually install the 3.19 packages in this manner: mkdir kernel cd kernel wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/220635919/linux-...

These error messages come from the HDA audio codec base device initialization. AFG is the audio function group, MFG is the modem function group. Looking at the driver, one gets an -ENODEV (error, no device) error return from this, so I'm surprised audio still works.

You want the ones that have 'generic' NOT 'low latency' in the name and the ones that have 'amd64' NOT 'arm64' AND the one that ends with 'all'. That should give you 3 in total: linux-headers-4.7.0-040700rc6-generic_4.7.0-040700rc6.201607040332_amd64.deb linux-headers-4.7.0-040700rc6_4.7.0-040700rc6.201607040332_all.deb linux-image-4.7.0-040700rc6-...

The package name is actually linux-headers-generic-lts-wily that you want to install. This should pull in the headers and keep them updated with kernel updates you install.
