Aufs is no longer included in the Ubuntu kernel package. (modprobe aufs will give an error) Because overlay is included since 3.18. So you can just use that for docker. (I have no idea about migration.)

Answered in comments by Muru: The logs are processed using a program called rsyslog, which sends it to appropriate files like kern.log, auth.log, syslog, etc. You can modify it's configuration to send mails as well. The logged messages are classified into priority levels, so you can do so only for certain priorities, and only for messages from certain ...

It sounds like you're using dm-crypt/cryptsetup/LUKS on your whole partition, and also eCryptFS for your old home folder. Since you can already decrypt the whole partition ok, you just need to decrypt your home folder now. Easiest is probably using the ecryptfs-recover-private script, just run it (optionally telling it where your encrypted private directory ...

The problem was that a bunch of weird stuff had shown up in /etc/grub.d (no idea how). I restored it with the contents of the live CD of that same path. Also I re-installed grub-pc sudo apt-get install --reinstall grub-pc and let it overwrite the current etc/defaults/grub so that it all is normal again. Don't forget to run sudo update-grub to regenerate ...

You manually configured your /etc/default/grub. That's why this problem appeared. Remove this GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER="true" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="reboot=b Then run sudo update-grub It should be fixed. The last line is crap. And GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER does not let to find new kernels. There may some other hidden errors in that file. Here is the default ...

The kernel will offline cpus when they are not required to keep the power consumption low. When the load increases it will automatically put more CPUs online.

I also had this problem, but I found a solution, in this topic: https://forum.ubuntu-nl.org/index.php?topic=86081.25 In Ubuntu 15.04 I had to do the following: Install this .deb file: http://users.telenet.be/x86_64/Debian/dkms_rtl8192eu_4.3.1.1.11320.20140505_all.deb Edit the file: sudo gedit /usr/src/rtl8192eu-4.3.1.1.11320.20140505/Makefile And ...

You can install linux-source from 14.10. In 14.04.2 that kernel is installed. If you need Ubuntu kernel for development, you can clone it from git. git clone http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git/ubuntu/ubuntu-utopic.git

3.13 is the kernel version for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and will be supported until April 2019. Ubuntu 14.04.2 comes with 3.16 which only has an 18 month support from Feb 2015. So, you shouldn't have any problems staying with kernel 3.13.

There are several ways you may wish to approach this one, I have tried to be complete as possible and hope that one of these solves your problem. Is it needed?

Like most software in Ubuntu, the major version shipped (eg 3.13, 3.16, 3.19) is maintained for as long as that version of Ubuntu works. Security fixes are applied and pushed out through Apt. Maintaining software rather than just upgrading everything is a feature of Ubuntu. That said, if you really need a later version, there are options: LTS releases ...

You either have video driver problems or permission problems with some required files in your home folder. First, you need to enter terminal by pressing ctrl - alt - F1 in login screen. Then do sudo chown -R /home/username to restore permissions.

As part of the removal process apt-get tries to unzip a file to find out which exactly files it should remove. However because you don't have any space on the device apt-get can't do that and can't free up more space. I suggest you move a few big files from your root filesystem to another filesystem (or to a USB stick or whatever), try sudo apt-get ...

Not a complete answer (similar situation - ath10k/QCA6174 on a Fedora 22, 4.0 kernel), but more resources: https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/ath10k points to: https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.

When you run sudo apt-get update for the first time in a day, it will ask for your password. The sudo command by default will store your password in memory for up to 15 minutes. That is why if you run sudo apt-get upgrade shortly after, it will not ask you for a password, until you go and run the commands again later. From the Ubuntu Security Team FAQ: ...

Try adding these options to your qemu command: -netdev type=user,id=net0 -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=net0,mac="52:54:00:12:34:56" If it doesn't work take a look at https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/QEMU/Networking. Also, it might be interesting to look at tap interfaces and bridges.

No information is given for Ubuntu 14.04 because the kernel in 14.04 was released well after that bug was fixed. 3.13, therefore, already contains a fix for the bug. As for 12.04, the fix was released with 3.2.0-29.46 where you have 3.2.0-23 - so I'm inclined to think your kernel is still affected. Upgrade, people! linux-image-virtual for 12.04 is currently ...

It looks like you use Ubuntu 14.04 with kernel 3.16. But you have still 3.13 kernel meta packages that download and install these kernels. Some DKMS modules do not build with those kernels. To be more precise they build but do not install correctly. I suggest removing 3.13 meta packages by sudo apt-get remove linux-genreic ...

I was able to get it to work. Here is how I did it: First, I got the kernel source from the manufacturer and downloaded it to an Ubuntu 12.04 VM in a folder I called kernel on the desktop Second, I downloaded the driver source from exar (https://www.exar.com/common/content/document.ashx?id=20121) and put it in the VM in a folder I called exar on the ...

This leaps out at me: "FAT-fs (sdc1): Volume was not properly unmounted. Some data may be corrupt. Please run fsck." if /dev/sdc1 is indeed a FAT partition as indicated it has errors which you will need to repair. This may or may not be related to your crashing problem but it can't hurt to fix it. sudo dosfsck /dev/sdc1 or for a more complete version see ...

Short answer is run sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic on the first one. But 3.13 will be supported till 14.04 EOL. For a server maybe it is better to keep it. Or maybe it is time to run sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid on both to get 3.19. 14.04.3 will come with 3.19 in about a month and support of 3.16 will come to an end a ...

The kernel is updated because of an evolving dependency from kernel meta-packages. For example, my LTS-HWE kernel is updated because I have linux-headers-generic-lts-utopic. This depends on the latest version of the Utopic kernel (rebuilt for Trusty) and when a new version comes out, the meta-package is updated to depend on it and therefore Ubuntu updates ...

As inaccurate as this answer may seem, the only way I can get grub to show up is if I spam right-shift and space-bar just before the OS is starting to boot (just after the BIOS splash screen flashes off). My own anecdotal efforts seem to indicate that I have the best luck when I interchange my key presses, as opposed to just spamming the 2 keys at the same ...

First things first. How did you install kernel 3.19? As you're running a LTS release, the recommended way to install new kernels is by Hardware Enablement. Kernel 3.19 is available in Ubuntu 14.04 repositories. Make sure you have it installed: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-vivid Now, reboot the computer to load the new kernel. Make sure it is ...

Looks to me like you have a problem with your disk drive sda1. It's formatted as an ext4 file system and the file system is spitting out errors. Probably one way of fixing it would be by copying as much data as you can from the drive and then discarding the drive and putting the data on another one. Expensive and time-consuming. You can try other things, ...

Instead you can use the getconf command: getconf LONG_BIT It will shows you your kernel whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit.

The quickest and easiest way to remove old kernels is: sudo apt-get autoremove That normally cuts the number of installed kernels down to two or three. Do this after every software update that installs a new kernel to keep the problem from recurring.

You have run out of space on your boot partition. That is why apt-get fails, it even tells you so No apport report written because the error message indicates a disk full error Remove old kernels before (re)installing, leave most recent and one previous. #dpkg -l | grep linux-image- will list all installed kernels sudo apt-get autoremove ...

Well it is not surprising the apt-get functions are failing if your /boot partition is full. You just have to free up space in your /boot, you can do it graphically or via terminal/ssh whatever you are more comfortable with. You can purge (not remove!) unneeded packages taking up space (kernels since its your /boot part), or you can expand your /boot ...

Most of hardware drivers are built into linux kernel. It is always better when they are. But in some cases you can or have to install them separately: 1.

But frequently there are ...

You have a 3.16 kernel. Why do you have to install kernel source? The patch is to augment the _local errors you get when you compile ./build/utest/utest_run which would be fixed in Linux kernel 4.2. Since you are using an older kernel, the patch will fix the 15-30 errors you get when you compile ./utest_run. One thing you have to ...
