The best I could find is this one, github.com/snuf/iomemory-vsl, but as the developer mention, it is not tested with last kernels, last commit was 3 months ago, you may want to give it a try. From the errors you got, it seems you have tried to build deb package. I tried as documented in README, installing to DKMS manually. It does build fine in Ubuntu 16.04 ...

When we do an Ubuntu install, give us the option to automatically delete old kernels and the other junk none of us need anymore. How hard is that? Deleting old kernels is simple. Doing it automatic is NOT. Please tell me you know of a definition for "old kernels". In my professional opinion (yes I maintain servers) the automated system needs to stay away ...

If you just need kernel symbols to run systemtap, easiest way is to install the dbgsym package for your kernel, it'll be a lot less painful than recompiling the whole kernel yourself: Head over to How to install Ubuntu kernel debug symbols. If there's no matching dbgsym package you might need to upgrade your kernel. See apt-cache search 'linux-image.*...

You are not running two kernels at the same time. Grub has located many more than two different kernels installed on your system. This commonly happens when the kernel has been updated. Hold down shift while booting your system to display grub, you will then see the option to log into your system with either kernel. It is good to keep two different ones ...

One is a old one and one is a new one. Version 4.4 is the new one, and the latest in the Ubuntu repositories, and version 3.13 is the old one and the one that came with Ubuntu 14.04.

The file Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt is in the Linux source repository, for example, clone the main Linux git repo: git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux cd linux less Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt Alternatively, one can view this via the URL from the git repo: https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/...

You can set CONCURRENCY_LEVEL variable for that. Run the command this way CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=8 fakeroot debian/rules binary-headers binary-generic This variable is set to the number of CPUs automatically.

Another way to do it is to create your own key, insert the public part into the MOK database and sign the modules you compile with the private part. Look here for detailed info: Could not load 'vboxdrv' after upgrade to Ubuntu 16.04

The easiest thing to do would be to install the version of Virtualbox that is included in the Ubuntu software repositories. In general, this is preferred over installing a downloaded version (unless you need special features that the version in the software repos doesn't offer). The version of Virtualbox in the Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) repos is 5.0.18-1. First,...

I solved this as follows: delete the offending file (in the OP case /var/lib/dpkg/info/thunderbird-gnome-support.list reinstall the offending package using apt-get install --reinstall thunderbird-gnome-support This recreated the deleted file list for me as well. Of course, this can be cumbersome if a lot of files are corrupt, but in my case it was only ...

This just happened to me, and it turns out the nvme kernel module wasn't loaded into the initramfs. When you get dropped into the busybox prompt, try modprobe nvme. If it doesn't show up in /proc/modules afterwards, the initramfs is missing it. Simply add nvme to your /etc/initramfs-tools/modules file, and then run: sudo update-initramfs -u -k all and ...

As the output says, MRTG is already installed: mrtg is already the newest version. However, the package pbis-open errored during installation.

Go to Ubuntu launchpad and download libcncurses5-dev.deb then copy it to pendrive, transfer it to the other PC, and give the command: dpkg -i libcncurses5-dev.deb Good luck. And do consider upgrading to a supported version of Ubuntu.

No need to install linux-virtual anymore because it has the same dependencies as linux-generic except the package linux-firmware (compare these: http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/linux-virtual, http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/linux-generic). Also, see the answer here linux-image-virtual packages empty in 14.04 trusty?. But if you want to use it so that you ...

Perhaps you can try and free some space first by purging out old unwanted packages using: sudo apt-get autoremove ..and then try again with the header install using: sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

If I were to guess, you have a separate partition for /boot. That's not unusual, the installer does that when using LVM. First mount /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root at /mnt, and then mount /dev/sda2 at /mnt/boot.

Start your computer and trigger the 'shift' button until the grub-menu occurs.

The file /usr/local/bin/mkyaffs2image doesn't exist, just like the error message is telling you. Check whether this is true by using ls : ls /usr/local/bin/mkyaffs2image If you get a "No such file or directory" error, then the file really doesn't exist. The sudo chmod command that you're using is trying to change the permissions of the two files /usr/...

I can't answer your question exactly, but I'll try. According to this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudioPreparation "ubuntu" users can opt to install lowlatency kernel manually OR install the ubuntustudio package.

The feature you're thinking of is called kGraft. Although integrated into Linux starting with version 4, the distro has to be configured to support it; as far as I can tell, so far only SUSE Linux Enterprise is offering support for kGraft patches at this time.

Okay as mentioned in my post the final answer was to reinstall Grub: # purge old and reinstall new to sda sudo apt-get purge grub grub-pc grub-common sudo mv /boot/grub /boot/grub_backup sudo mkdir /boot/grub sudo apt-get install grub-pc grub-common sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sda sudo update-grub

You need to reload grub. Usually, this problem happens automatically when you install a new kernel, so how did you install the kernel? To update grub, use this command. sudo update-grub And then restart your computer.

After looking around in /boot/grub/grub.cfg wondering if I should change stuff I remembered that I had used grub-customiser when I set up my system. I opened it to see what I would find there. There were removed entries from both Ubuntu and Windows 7. Somehow the removed Ubuntu entry had ver 4.4.0-24 at it's details (maybe update-grub auto updated it?). I ...

I would recommend going with last one prepared for same release (16.04 Xenial), current: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.4.13-xenial/ Only if you are looking to submit a bug report against kernel, then you should try the bleeding edge upload (including rc) to include results in the report, current: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/...

With the release of 14.04 the default scheduler for the 3.13 kernel was changed from CFQ to Deadline. There is no longer a separate server kernel and the CFQ sheduler is not suited to many server usage scenarios eg KVM write timeouts. There are even performance regressions on the desktop with USB devices.

So I tried upgrading to recent kernels and found that it was not a problem with kernel but with the wireless card and motherboard integration . The wireless card is connects via pci and talking to manufacturers lead to a conclusion that "the wireless card did not sent proper signals while booting just for a particular board " and thus this problem occurs . ...

If you want the official Ubuntu stock kernel (not a mainline kernel) from an unsupported version, see below. For differences between Mainline and Stock kernels see http://askubuntu.com/a/91374/555474 I had to install an even older kernel (2.6.32.21-generic) for stock modules to work with a custom kernel.

I had to install an even older kernel (2.6.32.21-generic) for stock modules to work with a custom kernel. VBoot releases their module built in the kernel and I had to match versions to get my other hardware to work.

The processor is responding to a Machine Check Exception (MCE) on a page of memory. An MCE is hardware error and may be one of the following: 1) A system bus error (data error between the processor and the motherboard). 2) Memory error: a parity check detected a memory error. 3) Processor cache errors. In your case, I suspect a memory parity check ...

Assuming you want to patch an Ubuntu kernel (since this is askubuntu.com).

Since both are maintained in git you can use ...

The Ubuntu Kernel Team regularly run a lot of analysis of different simulated workloads on different file systems and I/O schedulers to get an idea of the best generic I/O scheduler choice.

I don't know why the developers decided to choose deadline as default scheduler, maybe it is because most new computers ship with a SSD, on which normally the systems are installed. You can set the scheduler manually this way, in case you haven't already installed it ... install gksu : Open a terminal and execute : sudo apt install gksu Then ...

This is a known bug with older versions of the kernel, caused by the driver for the Realtek RTL8821AE WiFi card. Unfortunately, the ISO file which you can download from Sourceforge uses a kernel which is several years old and thus has this bug. Further, that version has no way to get access to the advanced options so as to avoid trying to use the network. ...

/, which is the base directory of the Linux filesystem and is normally where the partition on which you installed Ubuntu is mounted, was changed to be the mountpoint of sdb1.

None of these solutions worked on 16.04 LTS for i915.ko.

You have installed libinput. It is used instead of xorg-synaptics to manage the touchpad. Unfortunately current Ubuntu with Unity DE does not have libinput settings GUI by default. unity-control-center can control only of xorg-synapics.
