This was fixed due to the help of @g_p and @muru, who pointed out the low disk space issue. Specifically @muru's link helped a lot. Be careful though, that you don't do what I did, and end up removing files that are actually important to the running of the PC (like the network). :)

The reason you pull in new kernel versions is that you have the shell package linux-image-generic installed, which does not contain the kernel image itself but at any given time depends on the most recently released kernel package. This is why you get a new kernel version installed even though its package name is different, containing the version number. ...

This is caused by a change for security reason in kernel 3.18 [1]. There are two ways to fix this. First approach is adding this rule to the file /etc/ufw/before.rules before the line # drop INVALID packets ... -A ufw-before-input -p 47 -j ACCEPT Second approach is manually loading the nf_conntrack_pptp module. You can do this by running sudo modprobe ...

You should look in /var/log/apt/history.log or older /var/log/apt/history.log.*.gz files if there were any issues during installing the kernel images and compiling initrd. Also it seems like 3.13.0-44 is currently the latest available in 14.04, so try to install the latest currently available kernel, check history.log for error and try to boot that. If ...

Actually, there is a patch for fglrx 14.501 to make it working with the kernel 3.17.X (source). Since I wanted to install from debs I did it a bit different way, than described in the linked source.

I do recommend using the linux-image-generic-lts-utopic or whatever newer made available for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Try avoid mixing release repositories, it may break things. If linux-image-generic-lts-$(lsb_release -sc) is NOT new enough for you, try the Ubuntu Kernel mainline archive (manually download and install) ...

The image at Kernel/LTSEnablementStack - Ubuntu Kernel Support section shows that the 3.16 kernel will come out first, along with 14.10, as an "Early Preview" from the "-updates pocket", i.e. the "recommended", non-security-related updates. And in fact it is already there, currently as linux-image-3.16.0-29-generic though of course you'll want to install ...

Success!!! I found that I needed to disable fast startup on Windows for Ubuntu to successfully install. Steps to disable fast startup: Go to start screen and search for "change what the power buttons do" Click "change settings that are currently available" Scroll down and uncheck "Turn on fast startup". After fixing that, I did run into Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ...

I had to do this a little while ago when I bought a new sound card for my machine which was running ubuntu 12.04 at the time. I had to upgrade my kernel to 3.16.2 to get the updated sound card driver. The process is fairly straight forward. I take no responsibility for this going wrong for you, if it does :-). It worked well for me: First install the ...

I successfully updated my Ubuntu 14.10 installation to the 3.17.8 kernel using the Mainline builds. To update to 3.17, you have to: Download the corresponding linux-image-*-generic-* package: on a 32-bit system: $ wget "http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.17-utopic/linux-image-3.17.0-031700-generic_3.17.0-031700.201410060605_i386.deb" on a ...

For what it is worth, my experience with v3.18.1 and .2 kernels is that these seem to have problems with USB devices not being detected. Due to this I went back to 3.16 yesterday. I ran 3.13.0-24-generic before that. The ones I tried in between 3.13 and 3.16 all had issues of some kind (yes these were "official" updates!). 3.16 causes spotread from argyll ...

I read the "advice" given on that bugreport but I think it was wrong. You're not supposed to download one .deb package but 3, depending on the architecture. See more details here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds#Installing_upstream_kernels It is a good idea to revert to using nouveau (the open source nvidia driver) if you're going to test a ...

Ubuntu 14.04 (current patches up to 1/15/2015) Lenovo ThinkPad W530. I found the Cirago BTA8000 at Fry's Electronics for $19.99. It was literally "plug and play". I tried several different brands and kept returning them because they couldn't be made to work. When I plugged in the BTA8000, I thought it was another failure - no dings, no horns, nothing to ...

First you need to know which kernel you are running. You do that with $ uname -a Linux hostname 3.2.0-74-generic #109-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 9 .... The 3.2.0-74-generic is the interesting part. If you see through the files you will notice that there are always the same 5 files with the same number. Afaik these build each version/installation of a specific ...

You can add the line modprobe wacom to /etc/rc.local and it will get executed on boot with root privileges.

I think the package you want is linux-libc-dev . I encountered this when building 32-on-64; so I needed linux-libc-dev:i386. Try running the following in a new Terminal window : sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install linux-libc-dev linux-headers-generic

So, I'm having the exact same problem you're having. While I haven't tried it yet, there are alternate steps on the GitKernelBuild page which look much more promising.

I think it depends on your kernel: 3.10+ uses firmware -7 3.13+ uses firmware -8 3.14.9+ uses firmware -9 3.17+ uses firmware -10 Source: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi Ubuntu 14.04 is 3.13 so loads 22.24.8.0.

OK, I worked this out. It was a Unetbootin issue. I hadn't formatted the USB stick before putting a new image on there, and as a result it was installing the kernel from the previously installed version (on the USB) to the machines hard drive. I'm not so sure why the live boot image seemed to work properly if that was the case, but in the end, the fix was ...

I fixed it! I tried to reset unity from a text terminal (ctrl+alt+f1). It didn't work. Threw a dbus error. Couldn't open a terminal even with the shortcut after login. But later found that the guest account is working! So, I created a new admin user, logged in successfully and then reset unity. It worked!

You have both linux-image-generic and linux-image-generic-pae installed. Thus, whenever a new kernel is released, you're getting both the PAE and non-PAE version. PAE stands for physical address extension, and is a way for 32-bit computers to access all 4GB (in some cases more) of RAM. If you have 2GB RAM or less, there is no benefit to using PAE. If you ...

Boot into a live system from USB, DVD, or CD and make sure you have internet access. Mount your Ubuntu installation, e. g. by opening the corresponding partition in Nautilus or with Gnome Disks. It should be mounted somewhere under /media/ubuntu or /media but I'll refer to the mountpoint by [mountpoint] later. If you have a separate /boot or /var ...

I had similar issues using 14.04; the battery icon would update when the system would boot up and would not update. First: to take care of your upowerd issue you can disable it by renaming your org.freedesktop.UPower.conf file. Execute the following commands in an open terminal. sudo mv /etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.UPower.conf ...

Try reinstalling Xubuntu. Reinstalling can usually fix these problems. If that doesn't work, it may be that the disk is damaged. If that seems like the case, try burning a new disk and reinstalling Xubuntu using the new disk. Note that there is a glitch where it deletes your Windows partition if you have one.

Erm? You made an "ISO" with dd of an existing installation from a harddrive to use it with UNetbootin for setting up Ubuntu on an external drive? That's one step too much and a very crude workaround: xkcd.com/763/ UNebootin is intended to be used with ISO images for optical media. If you dd something from your harddrive that's an image too, but not for ...

The power state is adjusted dynamically based on the current configuration of the GPU. I suspect you have multiple displays connected which why the clocks are higher. Dynamic mclk switching is done during the vertical blanking period so it can only be done when a singel display is attached. When multiple displays are attached, the mclk is forced high. ...

Some CPU's of the Intel Pentium M series are a bit strange when it comes to PAE (Physical Address Extension). They don't report their PAE support to the kernel, so the installer may ask you to install the non-PAE version of Ubuntu. This can be "fixed" (circumvented) by telling the kernel to assume that PAE is supported, even if it can't see it. To do so, ...

VCLK and DCLK are two UVD internal clocks. SCLK is the Engine clock and MCLK is the Memory clock, both depend on the current power level. VDDC (mV) is the GPU core voltage VDDCI (mV) is the I/O bus voltage (between memory and GPU core) and comes from the PCI-Express slot. Note: clock units seem to be kHz * 10 (Source) Sources: ...

If you are connected to the internet, the fastest way to upgrade your kernel is to perform a system update, which is ordinarily automated but you can pre-empt the automated update if the matter is that urgent. Simply open the Update Manager and click on Check. Update: I was very curious why anyone would be interested in forcing such an upgrade or if there ...

Could try unplugging any accessories, especially USB devices, sometimes they can cause delays when starting up. And see if it boots any faster afterwards. Or could be that your computer is too slow for Ubuntu Unity (main version), you could try a "lighter" version like Xubuntu, Lubuntu, maybe Kubuntu, or use a different Window Manager like one from a ...

I had the same problem upgrading Ubuntu from 12.04 to 14.04.1: The kernel stayed at 3.2. Only at second glance I noticed that the upgrade did not create any boot menu entry for 14.04 - the latest entry was for 12.04 with a 3.2 kernel (the splash screen during boot did nevertheless show "14.04" which is why it took me some time to stumble upon this).

Finally after trying a number of things I installed the 3.17 kernel. I purged xorg-edgers and installed nvidia-331 from apt-get and I now have a working setup. I ran into two problems, the first was that I could not change the resolution on my laptop monitor from 640x320. Deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf resolved that. The second was that when I logged in, unity ...

Have you tried using different programs to make the Live USB? When I make a Live USB with the Startup Disk Creator application, I usually get this error (which is odd, since it's the default application). But when I make a Live USB with Unetbootin, it almost always works great. EDIT I just looked up your motherboard. The BIOS has had a bunch of updates ...

I'm glad I'm able to answer this for you, because I suspect your question would confuse most serious ubuntu users who simply don't see it your way, as would I not were it not that I do as much support for Windows users as I do. There's no easy way to tell you this, but Ubuntu doesn't actually hang. Instead it merely doesn't waste any CPU cycles stroking ...
