Simply boot to a previous kernel and reinstall the kernel version and type the following sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-generic linux-image sudo update-grub sudo reboot now

uname -r - determine which kernel you are using at the moment. dpkg --list | grep linux-image - to list all kernels apt-get purge linux-image-3.13.0-36-generic - delete old unused kernel (just for example) sudo update-grub - Now update grub so it knows that you don't have some of the kernels Hope this helps!

Yes - its possible using cgroups. Refer to cgroups doc. There are lots of examples on the net could search.

System do not know what is "too much ram" or "too slow" or "important applications". You must manually setup this limits for your program. See topics: oom-killer, renice.

I solved the problem by changing from the mirror of my country to the main server as the place to download updates from. I guess Canada just hasn't updated their repositories yet. So no, the 3.17 kernel is not needed for Netflix, just make sure that you have all the latest updates for your computer.

Just came across this, according to Kristof: include/config is not used for header files at all. It's part of a clever trick to optimize the kernel build. The kernel configuration (stored in .config) is used to generate a header file which is used throughout the kernel. The problem is that changing one option means all files which include ...

I just had this issue, and the suggestion to use apt-get autoremove did not work for me. I resolved it by doing: sudo apt-get purge linux-headers-3.2.0-23 on such linux headers that lived in /usr/src. I did not remove the headers that correspond to the kernel currently being used. Restarted the server successfully.

"BUG: scheduling while atomic" ==> IMU this error possibly related to atomicity issues in the kernel code, indicating that a code path in the kernel was attempting to sleep while performing an atomic operation and possibly in an un-interruptible state. This could result in a dead-lock condition, therefore considered a panic condition.

I was just having an issue with my hibernation in Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon and came across this link. The article provides four potential reasons for hibernate not working and their solutions.

12.10/Quantal is EOL - Dead! If you want to revive it, anything can work. I have been runnig kernel 3.12 on ubuntu 10.04 Lucid, and it works great. My guess is that you can use any kernel, but the only way to find out is to try. If you are ready to compile yourself, then is kernel 3.4 still alive. It is the one closest to quantals original (3.5) and would ...

You can use 3.17-Utopic at your own risk. I am using the same on Ubuntu 14.04. NOTE: As per what I know, the kernels available in mainline are not completely tested. Once testing is done, it will be made available to you. Best of Luck...

Whenever you get messages about missing packages (or suggestions to modify your PKG_CONFIG_PATH) during a build, it usually indicates that you are missing the corresponding development package - which is typically separate from the runtime package that is normally installed on the system. In this case you have the most recent version of fontconfig but are ...

I had a similar issue when I upgraded from Linux Mint 16 (based on Saucy) to Linux Mint 17 (based on Trusty). Suddenly my suspend, hibernate and shutdown functions all failed to work properly.

To be clear, your monitor itself does not "require" certain amounts of RAM, but your GPU might. Also, RAM cannot manage anything other than some very low-level functions within itself. When your system boots up, the BIOS or EFI will decide how much (if any) RAM your integrated GPU will need and "hard reserve" it from your system RAM to be used exclusively ...

I have had this problem on various networks which needed samba filesharing services from an Ubuntu or LinuxMint-based file server. In every case, while the user's samba account had a password and allowed browsing (and manipulating files) of a share through a file manager, fstab mounts did not work. This is regardless of having set sec=ntlm or sec=ntlmv2 ...

You need to compile some kernal drivers: First $ sudo apt-get install build-essential module-assistant $ sudo m-a prepare Second as mentioned in the error reinstall kernal module. sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup This should solve your problem. Sometime only second step can solve your problem(so try it first). ...

Where is the .default you speak of? The upgrade killed my audio also, running UCA202 USB. Everything shows up in my Setting Settings though. pulseaudio is running too.

Ok, so I found the issue. There were some driver artifacts left behind during the upgrade in the .default stopping pulse audio from working correctly. When I removed them, everything started to work normally.

"@fkraiem Most likely not. I am installing a version of ubuntu and would like to make changes automatically versus doing the same process several times for different boards" You could write a Bash script that, when run, makes the changes you want. Then you can put it on a USB stick and run it with every new install. (this is all in a terminal, I use ...

I have no clue how to fix these problems. I suppose you have googled for those errors?! And Googled for problems with your type of laptop and Ubuntu 14.04? Maybe it's a driver problem. Can you go back to 13.10 - do you have an image to go back to? Probably not without making a clean install, and then you better try 14.04. If you do have that image, go back ...

Here is a guide on making an Ubuntu install USB stick. If you made a separate partition for your home directory, then you can just re-install almost the same as you installed initially. If you didn't, you could copy your home directory (/home/$USER) to a flash drive to back it up: sudo tar -czf /media/USBSTICK/backup.tar.gz /home/$USER To restore: cd ...

Are you sure your GRUB is properly configured to use the right kernel as the default kernel? You could check this out in the GRUB menu file under the /boot directory. Sorry can't remember the exact name right now. Also, you might consider re-installing the GRUB boot loader. Final thought, hope you did not delete something else you should not have. I'd ...

Not sure why but it worked: Add the following modules to /etc/modules and etc/initramfs-tools/modules dm-mod dm-snapshot dm-mirror and then install lvm2 or if you already have it installed just run "update-initramfs -u" again.

First you should try to obtain the latest drivers for your video card if you are using proprietary drivers. The best way is a manual installation using the installer from the manufacturer's website. For open source drivers, the PPA below provides near bleeding edge builds which are compatible with the latest mainline kernel usually. It will also have ...

Same thing happened to me also, here's how to get it back: First, try to boot in recovery mode: Follow the instructions in this post. If you manage to get to the root prompt where you can type commands, things are looking good.

Ok don't panic, good news is you should be able to recover your current install, no need to reinstall from scratch... First, try to boot in recovery mode: Follow the instructions in this post.

The kernels Ubuntu provides in the mainline PPA are unmodified versions of the Linux kernels found on kernel.org. They do not add any extra/additional patches when building them when compared to the officially supported Ubuntu kernel builds. AuFS and OverlayFS are not part of the upstream kernel and thus are omitted when Ubuntu builds these mainline ...

It isn't possible to set APT to do this. This is part design choice, part limitation. Ubuntu designates each new kernel as a different package name (the package name contains the kernel version) so APT treats them as separate packages. When they want you to download and install a new package, they create the new kernel package, and then point the generic ...

About the DPI part, you can also try "normal" Ubuntu (Ubuntu Unity) which will have high DPI support by default (no need to use PPA or any other package).

The kernel compiled and installed successfully, only the nvidia driver failed to compile, most probably because it is not compatible with that version of the kernel. If you want the nvidia driver with your new kernel, you will have to find and install a more recent version of it.

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.
