You are making the assumption that odd-numbered kernel releases are unstable, which has not been true since version 2.6.x. — that’s 2003. See the History part on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_kernel. The development (unstable?) versions are now distributed in the various developers’ git trees; the thing more resembling the old odd-numbered kernels ...

In the past even minor version numbers were reserved for stable kernels. This practice has been abandoned since a long time. Unstable kernel versions are now tagged with -rc<N>, where <N> is an increasing number.

3.13 was the stable version of the kernel when it was decided to be used for Ubuntu 14.04. When 14.10 is released, the newer kernel will then also be backported to the LTS release, for enablement. This has been standard practice for years.

The copy of blacklist.conf consulted during boot, to produce that ignoring bad line error, is the one in the initial RAM filesystem. (That copy's fully qualified path is /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, like the one you edited. But at the point during boot when it is consulted, / is the initial RAM filesystem rather than your regular root filesystem stored ...

An Ubuntu installation comes fully compiled - You won't find the source code in an installed Ubuntu. To view the kernel code, go to the Linux GitHub repository. To look at ubuntu-specific code, go to the Ubuntu Launchpad code site.

Download the fresh ISO from here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ and then try again.

VirtualBox is indicating that the PAE support is not present in your computer. The following link may provide you with what you need to do to help with this situation. Virtualbox install 12.04 guest: "pae not present"

I have same problema here, my server didn't start with USB and network. I saw that package "linux-generic-pae" was missing. System 32-bit need this package, I found this Why are there so many "linux-" kernel packages on my machine, and what do they all do?. This solve for me: apt-get install linux-generic-pae

To get rid of old kernel packages I first check that I am not running the kernel I am about to delete :) uname -a Then I grep for the packages, for example: dpkg -l | fgrep linux-image- dpkg -l | fgrep 3.13.0-24 Then I purge specific kernel packages from that list (the following is just an example, you can copy/paste the actual kernel package names): ...

If it happens on both Linux and Windows, it's almost certainly faulty hardware. Have you done a memtest, for starters? (Boot Ubuntu desktop CD, choose "test memory".)

You can use other boot loaders without needing to use their search scripts. Like network boot pxe syslinux. You just need to aim kernel to /vmlinuz and initrd to /initrd.img and no matter how many times you update the kernel, it will still boot.

Read man 5 modules, it will tell you how to specify kernel modules to load at boot time. Or, just append "psmouse" to the /etc/modules file. At "boot time", no modules are loaded, so the rmmod is unneeded.

Keyboards use event device files. You can find them in /dev/input/event*. To find the exact path you can egrep -i "keyboard.+\/dev" /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Is your hard disc partitioned such that you could install Ubuntu 14.04 again in a separate partition, in so doing making a clean install free of any clutter? Does the same problem arise if you simply boot from a live CD? I have four partitions (sometimes more), and one is the current 14.04, the other is 12.04, there is a separate partition where I keep all ...

After upgrading my BIOS on my Brix Pro from F4 to F5, I was able to boot off and install Ubuntu 14.04.01 LTS. Prior to the BIOS upgrade, I would always get a kernel panic during the bootup of the 14.04.01 ISO image off a USB stick. Give that a try.

It turns out that the hosting company I use (Digital Ocean) have a control panel through their website that allows you to set the kernel.

For me, the problem was a wrong kernel version after upgrading my system from 13.10 to 14.04. Fixed the kernel issue by reinstalling the generic kernel package (Wrong kernel after upgrade --- old kernel still installed?). After that, perf worked perfectly.

This indicates an error in the Linux kernel. The screen you see is supposed to serve the developer to figure out what went wrong. It is unlikely to happen again. In the case it happens you can reboot you computer with Ctrl+Alt+S-Abf+r, Ctrl+Alt+S-Abf+e, Ctrl+Alt+S-Abf+i, Ctrl+Alt+S-Abf+s, Ctrl+Alt+S-Abf+u,Ctrl+Alt+S-Abf+b.

I used powertop. I have Ubuntu 14.04 installed on a Dell Inspiron 15R 5523 laptop with AMD/Intel Hybrid graphics.

You didn't actually ask a question, I assume your question is "Why do I get this error and what does it mean?". The problem is not with the kernel compilation process, which seems to have gone fine. Rather, the error occurs when dkms (the third-party driver manager) tries to compile your wifi driver for the new kernel. The compilation fails, most probably ...

I have felt exactly the same problem. If windows 8.1 (or any operating system along which you wish to run ubuntu) recovery is available, than try installing ubuntu as the only operating system for your laptop.

Such behaviour is caused by a kernel bug introduced in 3.17-rc3, fixed in 3.17-rc6 (Revert "Btrfs: device_list_add() should not update list when mounted")

You need to replace the string 'version' with the actual version number. example: sudo update-initramfs -u -k 3.5.0-23-generic You can use uname -r to get the version


1

According to man update-initramfs, you should put a specific kernel version for -k Instead of the "version" string itself. For example, if you want to use your current kernel, it would be: sudo update-initramfs -u -k `uname -r` Since uname -r could print you the kernel version, it's equivlant to: sudo update-initramfs -u -k 3.13.0-32-generic Cheers

what version of lm-sensors are you using? what kind of chipset/board are you using?

For me dpkg-reconfigure rebuilds the Nvidia driver with the latest kernel. This then requires a reboot to take effect.

Why would you ask about neogrub and settings on Ubuntu forum ? Is neogrub part of Ubuntu ? Moreover neogrub is a pirated version of grub4dos as it does not comply to GPL ! Please supply link to source code of neogrub and your question will be answered.

It doesn't really help to understand the concept to look at the kernel settings: cat /boot/config-`uname -r` This only shows which settings were used, while the kernel was compiled and unless you want to compile your own kernel, there is now use to change this. You want to look at the output of lsmod, which shows all loaded modules. There you can guess, ...

The cdfs-src package is deprecated (reason: doesn't work with linux 3.1 or later) since Ubuntu 13.04, you won't find a repo to install it for 14.04.

You can install this from the precise repo, 3.8 was the default kernel on 12.04.

Since the case involves a system with 100% HD usage, so, installing any application will not work. The only safe option is to delete unnecessary files first.

Several users on other posts were able to get this audio chipset working by editing /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf: nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf And add the following line: options snd-hda-intel model=generic This worked for me on a Philips Freevent x55, although I had to use sudo gedit instead of nano.

To update your kernel you can use a guide like: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds (but you could just google for it) Installing upstream kernels To boot into an upstream kernel you only need to download and install the image.deb package that corresponds to your architecture.

TL;DR: Based on what you already do have installed, just install pkg-config and you should be good to go. Building the kernel uses Qt if you want to configure what goes into your kernel by running make xconfig. (Which you likely do, as this is one of the friendliest ways to do it.) At least for any remotely recent kernel, you can use Qt 4 instead of Qt 3. ...
