According to your output all old kernels have been removed already. You have only kernel 3.13.0-62 installed.

First remove the headers. Give ls /usr/src | grep linux-headers to see your headers, and then use purge: sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-xxx and then sudo apt-get purge linux-image-xxx

Begin to execute this command to check which version you are running: uname -r Then check linux headers and image currently installed : dpkg -l | grep -Ei "linux-headers|linux-image" Finally purge old version (here 3.13.0-30): sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.13.0-30 linux-headers-3.13.0-30-generic linux-image-3.13.0-30-generic ...

I guess the permanent fix will be sudo update-initramfs -u And the correct command in rc.local will be rmmod psmouse modprobe -v psmouse insmod /lib/modules/3.16.0-34-generic/kernel/drivers/input/mouse/psmouse.ko without all those wrong things like chmod u+x /home/nurho@NuRho/. But it is still not a correct way.

In the first two columns of your dpkg -l generated list of kernels you will find information on the package as follows: Column (desired action): u = Unknown i = Install h = Hold r = Remove p = Purge Column (package status): n = Not-installed c = Config-files H = Half-installed U = Unpacked F = Half-configured W = Triggers-awaiting t = Triggers-pending ...

sudo apt-get autoremove linux-image-3.13.0-51-generic In the past I have had success with: sudo apt-get purge linux-image-3.13.0-51-generic If that doesn't work try reading this great article: http://tuxtweaks.com/2010/10/remove-old-kernels-in-ubuntu-with-one-command/

/etc/kernel/postinst.d/apt-auto-removal generates /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels. So you can create new file APT configuration file same way. sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01autoremove-kernels-stop contains: APT::NeverAutoRemove { "^linux-image-*-generic$"; "^linux-headers-*-generic$"; "^linux-image-extra-*-generic$"; ...

You can install a specific kernel with (just change the kernel version here): sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.13.0-62-generic linux-headers-3.13.0-62 linux-headers-3.13.0-62-generic Or use the following command to to install the latest Trusty kernel (it's 3.13.0-62 for now), not any specific version: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-trusty ...

They are both telling the truth. Having gone through 8 Release Candidates, the kernel.org version of 4.2 is considered stable. In about two weeks you will observe kernel 4.3 RC1 there, and the process continues. Now, consider Ubuntu. Ultimately, the Ubuntu version, will have several changes additions and deletions that are not included in the mainline ...

"Is safe to update kernel from PPA mainline?" The Mainline builds wiki clearly states that "These kernels are not supported and are not appropriate for production use." It also states than "The mainline kernels builds are produced for debugging purposes and therefore come with no support. Use them at your own risk." Mainline builds also don't include the ...

That is because the Broadcom Wifi driver failed to compile (it is not compatible yet with 4.x kernel). Simply install bcmwl-kernel-source (Mirror) deb package from the Wily repository, reboot and you are good to go. Some error report will prompt after a reboot. Ignore them and they won't come back.

This problem can happen in the case of Hyper-V virtualization (Happened to me today). In this case the answer is to disable OS-probbing in grub by opening the configuration file : sudo nano /etc/default/grub And adding the line : GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=true

It looks like linux-headers-generic package is not installed. That is why linux-headers do not update with linux-image. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic and you will always have the correct headers.

It is safe. Well it can go wrong but in general it is a mistake a user made ;) The general method of installing a kernel is to install it side by side with the current kernels. So when grub is ready you pick a kernel to boot into and if that kernel does not work you reboot and pick a working kernel. The kernel team provides DEB installers. ...

loop must be compiled into the kernel and not built as a ko module. That is why it does not appear in lsmod. You can change max_loop as a boot parameter. The parameter is called max_loop=255. You can set it in /etc/default/grub in line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. Then run sudo update-grub.


0

It's likely compiled into the kernel, rather than being available as a separate loadable module: for example, on my 14.04 system ~$ grep 'loop' /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.builtin kernel/drivers/block/loop.ko See this StackOverflow discussion: Linux Loadable modules and built-in modules.

VMWare player 6 had some issues with the newer kernel versions, and requires patching in order to compile the vmnet modules. Patches can be found on GitHub. An easier solution may be to use VMWare player 7

The missing file /etc/initramfs/post-update.d/zz-flash-touch-initrd is part of the package initramfs-tools-ubuntu-touch. Therefore install it again sudo apt-get install --reinstall initramfs-tools-ubuntu-touch

It is possible, but not recommended because it is not supported in current stable Ubuntu version (no security update etc...). Run the following commands : 64 bits : wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.1.6-unstable/linux-headers-4.1.6-040106_4.1.6-040106.201508170230_all.deb wget ...

Ubuntu 14.04.3 and 15.04 have same kernel version 3.19. The Realtek driver detected that kernel and suggests to install the driver from a different branch that will work with this kernel. So just install the driver from that branch. That will not upgrade your system.

It looks like my Broadcomm Wireless drivers do not play well with latest Ubuntu 14.04 updates. I just removed debian packages bcmwl-kernel-source and dkms. The packages might very well run fine, but apt-get upgrade hangs, and I don't want to to deal with contantly freezing updates. Now I can run 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' and smooth sailing.

Does the problem still occur? I am eagerly looking for confirmation or denial of what I think is happening. The theory is that somehow (a BIOS issue is suspected), after a suspend Clock Modulation has become enabled. The current version of the intel_pstate driver is incompatible with any use of Clock Modulation, always resulting in driving the target pstate ...

You are right: Linux kernel comes with the drivers (aka modules), and if some of the drivers do not work, you may try installing or booting (if you have) a different kernel. For instance, on 14.04LTS, kernel 3.19 I had a problem with the Virtual box kernel module. But with 14.04LTS and kernel 3.13 there is no problem. Notice, however, that if the Linux ...

Your problem is because you have hybrid Intel+NVIDIA graphics and also Nvidia 980M is not well supported by nvidia-343 driver. I do not know were did you get that driver from.

This is officially a bug in Ubuntu 15.04 with Microsoft Lifecam HD-5000. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/vivid/+source/linux/+bug/1485910 for details. Should be fixed with a future release of the Kernel.

The answer: Nothing solved this problem. It has magically disappeared on it's own for the most part, although there is an occasional graphics lag in the GUI. I assume installing GPU drivers might help with that, but I'm not sure. Long story short, if you leave well enough alone for a couple days, it might give up and quit bugging you altogether!

I had the same problem today. Starting the system by live cd I found out in deed that in the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg there were listed old kernels 3.19.0-16 and 3.19.0-15. I changed this to 3.19.0-26 and 3.19.0-25 and could then luckily reboot without any further problems. Perhaps this is also the case with your system?

The error is a bit odd in case of grub. When apt installs a new kernel-version, it moves /vmlinuz and /initrd.img to /vmlinuz.old and /initrd.img.old (Which then are still pointing to the currently active kernel. Again, notice the .old extension, which is different from the story linked in "Damaged links after kernel uninstall") and creates two new files ...

This is an Ubuntu bug resulting in an incompatibility between kernel 3.19.0-26 and the fglrx-updates package. You can boot with the previous 3.19.0-25 kernel using grub. This bug has been fixed already, but the new package did not reach the stable repository yet. It is released today and will reach main server today. Local mirrors may be updated a bit ...

You're using the wrong command. dpkg --listfiles is for installed packages, not random .deb files. From man dpkg: -L, --listfiles package-name... List files installed to your system from package-name.

Recovery mode is a boot method that allows you to perform certain administrative tasks and recover your faulty Ubuntu system.

Recovery is for every kernel. If you have 5 kernels, you'll have 5 recoveries and they'll be named after the names of the kernels in grub. You have other options than booting the normal system when booting into recovery (for example freeing space or updating software or opening a root shell). If you boot the normal system from recovery, that's not a full ...

You 1st need to install the package. the correct name is: uio-module-drv-dkms. It is in the canonical partner PPA so you have to add the PPA with: sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ vivid partner" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/canonical_partner.list' prior to installation.

You need to check the system calls that are associated with the relevant commands to get low level idea of whats happening. The tool to trace system calls is strace.

I had the same problem and eventually found the answer here: http://askubuntu.com/a/399076/149571 In my case, the format of the bootable flash drive was not a format that windows could understand. I needed to format the flash drive as FAT32 and then use unetbootin to make it bootable again.

You have a new Nvidia adapter and a Focaltech touchpad. It seems that you have installed the Focaltech driver, because your touchpad worked in multitouch mode with kernel 3.19. You can fix all issues by installing a new Nvidia proprietary driver. Just in case I will give commands to install the Focaltech driver too. Run in terminal sudo apt-get install ...
