From the comments above: sudo service network-manager restart resolved the problem.

I am not an expert but I can say that it seems that you have disabled the passing of boot arguments during boot feature of the kernel. That is why kernel is not getting arguments ans booting into terminal

Linux (the Kernel) is mainly an abstraction layer for different kinds of hardware. It's a common ground where other software can built on top, not caring whether it runs on your smart phone or on your notebook. The people making that piece of software are very concerned to never ever ever break compatibility with existing software. The ABI is the bridge ...

My machine is an Asus F50SF and the following helped: Open your BIOS settings Navigate to Security > I/O Interface security Change New interface card to LOCKED and save the settings. Voilá! You can boot without nolapic and you can see all your cores.

Secure boot will let the Microsoft signed shim.efi boot, which then runs the Canonical signed grubx64.efi. Now this Canonical signed grub can run either signed or unsigned (by Canonical) Linux kernels -- some features will not be available on the unsigned kernels at boot, but you probably won't notice. Last time I tried this was with the 12.10 kernels, so ...

As the link below explains, somewhere in the 2.6.19 kernel, linux/config.h was removed. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-kernel-70/removal-of-include-linux-config-h-file-in-2-6-19-kernel-506363/

The last command should be sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic:amd64 or (if you really care about latency) sudo apt-get install linux-image-lowlatency:amd64 Please note that the 32-bit kernel will be removed. Also, some 64-bit userspace libraries will be installed.

I kind of had the same issue after upgrading. But I could get to tty and by accident found out that GNOME Do was the application to blame for that the keyboard (and mouse) stopped working.

Everyone: Do not use the code in the question! It purges an arbitrary amount of packages, on my system it would have purged: linux-image-3.14.18 linux-image-3.16.6 linux-image-3.17.1 linux-image-3.2.0-4-686-pae linux-image-686-pae linux-libc-dev:i386 ... and this includes the kernel I'm running at the moment! Probably the only thing keeping it from ...

A more automated method of the solution Giovanni provided (run this from a terminal while running the kernel version you wish to keep): sudo -i apt-get remove -qq $(dpkg -l 'linux-headers-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed "s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^ ]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d') apt-get remove -qq $(dpkg -l 'linux-image-*' | sed ...

When /boot is full, you need to remove older kernels. Get a list of currently installed kernels with: dpkg -l|grep linux-image Then check the kernel version you are currently using with: uname -a Now remove every linux-image-* package that isn't your current kernel version with: sudo apt-get remove --purge <linux-image-package-name>

longene-1.0-rc2 has the instruction on how to build and install longene kernel module. After that, you can run Windows application on your Linux machine. But the kernel module can only be built on x86 machine, x64 is not supported yet.

I had a similar issue. After the failed boot up, logging in to the TTY and running sudo startx shows an error with the symbolic link to /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglx.so - not found. I created the symbolic link, but this did not solve the problem. Currently unable to get startx to function using Catalyst 14.9 on Utopic 14.10. I know that utopic was ...

They are just remnants from 12.04 LTS. If it does not work with new kernels, it is caused by too old a computer not having the drivers for hardware it has.

Please see The Ubuntu Kernel Team wiki page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild You can build a kernel anywhere you want, you do not need to su root or anything to build a kernel. Also see, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Dev and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel Which has a page for about every kernel hacking topic you can think of.

Beginning with 3.7, the uapi sources have changed and this causes issues with some older drivers that can't locate version.h... Try this: ln -s /usr/src/linux-$(uname -r)/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-$(uname -r)/include/linux/

After having configured the kernel, you can use make-kpkg to compile it and make a .deb package for easy installation and de-installation. If you install such a package, the new kernel is automatically added to your grub config.

This is a protection mechanism that kicks in, see links below. Either something evil is going on or some software is broken, check the logs if it always happens when using the same program.

Use sudo apt-mark hold [linuxkernelpackage] This will ignore upgrades/downgrades for that package. Source: Exclude packages from `apt-get upgrade`

Among other things suggested here, like adding more RAM, you could try using less resource-intensive desktop environment, like lxde or xfce, change to another display manager (gdm or kdm), and lessen the number of start-up processes. Also, remember to clean up cache in firefox and occasionally do sudo apt-get autoclean and sudo apt-get autoremove to remove ...

Well your cpu is not the best, try upgrading to 14.04 and see how it works. Try to install 2GB more of ram and go for the 64bit if your cpu support it. Install Psensor and see what you cpu usage is. What is your graphic card?

As you are booting from a DVD, the DVD itself may either be damaged or corrupted, or the .iso file you downloaded corrupted when downloading. Try re-downloading it and burning it to another disk at a lower speed, and if possible, enable disk verification in your disk burner application's settings. This method should produce a working bootable disk.

I am not sure if you can resize the kernel to 1 mb - however, the Kernel Size Tuning Guide shows you which config options have which effect in respect to modifying the size of the Kernel.

This is not a matter of the Linux kernel supporting your keyboard; it's a matter of your keyboard supporting use with the Linux kernel. Also, according to the Launchpad link you posted, your keyboard works fine if you take it out of gaming mode. It was Gigabyte's design choice to build its "gaming mode" in a way that works out-of-the-box with Windows but ...

If a new kernel breaks your system and your system works fine with the old kernel, simply continue using the old kernel until another kernel version is released in the repositories. There is either a bug in the kernel or an unfortunate compatibility issue between the new kernel and one or more of your system drivers. Edit after additional context: Yes, ...

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.

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.

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...
