You have some old package alsa-hda-dkms that does not build for kernel 4.2. You need to remove it by running: sudo apt-get purge alsa-hda-dkms

The short answer is that the kernel version didn't change for your compile, it was changed for the official Ubuntu version. Longer answer below. Official Ubuntu kernels have special version numbers. You can look up the version number mapping here, and your particular line is copied below: 3.16.0-60.80~14.04.1 Ubuntu-lts-3.16.0-60.80_14.04.1 3.16.7-ckt22 ...

Like mentioned on comments, disabling Bluetooth and adding this blacklist dw_dmac blacklist dw_dmac_core to sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf solved all the issues for me. I got this from this link http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=163126&start=20#p961212

Finally I was lucky. After some trials and boot-repairs (e.g like the description in Recovering GRUB after installing Windows 7?) I found out that the problem was caused by the version of the kernel. On grub menu I selected advanced options where there was the choice between the 3.19.0-25-generic version which did not work (and was the same as the default ...

Practically speaking, if you are about to uninstall a number of old kernels (or perhaps you are part-way through that process) and you want to speed things up, you could try the following: Edit the file /usr/sbin/update-grub as root, and add the line exit 0 after the line #!/bin/sh. Use apt-get or Software Center to remove your unwanted kernels as planned. ...

If you think the error is related to Nginx, you should post your related Nginx logs. There are references to resolver in your logs posted, which might relate to Nginx. If the Nginx resolver is at fault, you might be able to workaround the issue by using raw IPs in your Nginx configuration instead of domain names. Also, check your current version of ...

I found the USB to Serial (RS232) adapter was the cause of the issue. Mixed with the long cable run it was going into a never ending restart which caused a kernal panic. I am not quite sure why but a better Adapter solved all the issues.

In April this year, the next LTS version (16.04) will be issued. You will be able to upgrade to it directly from 14.04 LTS. It will contain up to date versions of btrfs and the kernel. Upgrading to 15.10 (non-LTS) will require you to work through the intermediate upgrades (> 14.10 > 15.04 > 15.10). Are you able to wait 2-3 months?

Hi I had the same problem (I guess), after update kernel my network was disabled (ethernet and wifi). I was on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. When I went to the network panel I got something like this: network services are not compatible with this version I solved by re-installing this package ...

I think I solved my problem -- I dug into those failure logs and saw some lilo errors. Fatal: raid_setup: stat("/dev/sdb") run-parts: /etc/kernel/postinst.d/zz-runlilo exited with return code 1 I (thought) was not using lilo because it failed during the Ubuntu install and I switched to grub instead. but apparently the system thinks lilo is ...

These particular messages are WARNINGs and Soft Lockups. Sometimes you can continue running without issue and therefore aren't always show-stopping problems.

This happened to me today on Debian 8 (Jessie) following a kernel patch.

Try apt-get update and attempting to install again. Looking at: http://ddebs.ubuntu.com/pool/main/l/linux/ I see that particular dbgsym package is available as of today.

Your output shows three different kernels, each of which has an associated initrd file: vmlinuz-3.13.0-24-generic vmlinuz-3.13.0-74-generic vmlinuz-3.13.0-76-generic These are three kernels in the 3.13.0 series, with Ubuntu-specific sub-versions of 24, 74, and 76. This type of configuration is perfectly normal. Ordinarily, an Ubuntu installation drops a ...

It shows such because you have more than one kernel installed. Here's a sample:

Leaving the graphics issue aside, Ubuntu is, in my opinion, pretty heavy on a VM. Lubuntu, however, is very light (LXDE in particular); I successfully ran 8 VMs of Lubuntu 15.10 simultaneously (each having 650 MB of RAM and Guest Addition) with minimal lag. You might want to try that.

Install the LTS 'Wily' enablement stack. This will give you a more modern kernel, 4.2. There are numerous improvements in this kernel, and as noted by someone else, it looks like it will support your chipset natively. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

Please install the headers package. With a working internet connection, open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and run: sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic Then try your compilation again. Post any errors and we will be happy to help.

This is the default hierarchy in a default Linux system: As you can see there are no folders named /debian . So, as you have stated those are left-overs of your custom kernel compilation. You may delete it to free up some space. But if possible you might want to back-up your system to be on the safe side. Also, from free-electrons, on line 82 you will ...

Of course heemayl's answer is correct. Just for fun, here's a working C snippet showcasing the data returned by uname() (a sort of a homemade uname if you want): compile it with gcc uname.c -o uname and run it with ./uname: #include <stdio.h> // printf() #include <sys/utsname.h> // uname() int main() { int ret; // stores the return ...

The program strace allows us to view the system calls an application may make. With uname -a it's apparent that the only open calls go to system libraries, so technically there is no file on the filesystem that the uname opens for reading. Rather it makes system calls using the C libraries. As heemayl properly pointed out there exists sys call to retrieving ...

As an addition to heemayl's answer, you can get some information like in the uname command from /proc/version.

uname uses the system call uname(2) to get the kernel related information it shows. The synopsis is: #include <sys/utsname.h> int uname(struct utsname *buf); where uname(2) returns information in the structure pointed to by buf. Also you can read the header file utsname.h from /usr/include/"$(arch)"-linux-gnu/sys/utsname.h to dig deeper. Have a ...

I had the same issue, that I wasn't able to install Ubuntu 15.10 on my new Thinkpad. Therefore I add here my solution to the problem, because it could help someone.

I would suggest running the compilation without CONCURRENCY_LEVEL. Error 2 is rather general error, but the real cause is probably hidden somewhere up the compilation output. If you run it in non-parallel mode, you should be able to spot any other error message (from GCC for example) much easily. Best regards, Pavel

Corrupted local files In many cases, when removing/reinstalling does not work, corrupted local files are the cause. Often these local files are in a hidden folder (starting with a dot) in your home directory. In the case of Bluefish, just remove the folder ~/.bluefish. That should work :)

When the system is set up properly and you follow exactly the instructions : Ubuntu 14.04.3 Trusty Tahr Release Notes LTS Hardware Enablement Stack ... there should nothing go wrong with the proprietary NVIDIA drivers 352.

This message just explains that there's a new version number for the kernel which has been patched. It isn't something you need to worry about unless you have previously loaded third-party modules into your kernel manually. Any kernel modules loaded with dkms (such as virtualbox) will essentially take care of themselves. Doing the normal update/upgrade ...

I am able to resolve it finally. No need to upgrade the kernel for the wifi(Intel 3165 card) to work.

I referred to this link another thread on AskUbuntu on this topic as well as another link on AskUbuntu then finally got the two files ...

There was a hint above at not being able to process something about postinst.d so I looked at what scripts it was running and found them. I did a rm -rf /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-4.2.0-25-generic.* which had some .postrm and .list files that were being used and those were faulty for whatever reason. I removed them, ran dpkg --configure -a and no more ...

The linux-generic package is not installed for some reason. That's why you do not get kernel updates. You can install it by running: sudo apt-get install linux-generic

Just complementing @kos's nice answer: The Zero day exploit (CVE-2016-0728) was found by the researchers at Perception Point. It was introduced in 3.8 Vanilla Kernel. So the Ubuntu releases using kernel versions 3.8 or later are vulnerable. As @kos already mentioned, on a supported release you can just upgrade the kernel to install the patch: sudo apt-get ...

It has been patched already. Quoting the article: [...] "Yevgeny Pats discovered that the session keyring implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly reference count when joining an existing session keyring. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code with administrative ...

In the strongest possible terms I would urge you to resist the cheap solution here (simply uninstalling 3.16.0-57). The Kernel isn't updated to just annoy people, it gets some really important security updates that could otherwise leave your system open to attack. Instead I would either look at filing a bug against the kernel. If you have any development ...

Just happened to visit this thread after struggling with the same problem. As commented by @Javier Rivera in the question, the log did say something: Cannot use CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG: -fstack-protector-strong not supported by compiler So the solution is simple, upgrade the GCC suite(at least to 4.9). For my 14.04 Ubuntu box, the newest ...

Sorry for the confusion, looks like our UK router was at fault (BT hub). It does not have 802.11ac mode, so I had to switch it back to 802.11a from 802.11ng, on the 5Ghz and now the wifi is working with my laptop. Thanks for your help and answers anyway!

I could solve the error, by downloading the missing module here: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/sklgucver43 Unfortunately I am doubtfull this solves everything, play I play avideo in VLC with graphics acceleration (overlay mode), I can still not resize the video, but I will open a separate request for this.

From pathname.com: /var contains variable data files. This includes spool directories and files, administrative and logging data, and transient and temporary files.

What additional changes/risks I would have to handle? There is hardly any risk. I might even claim there is no risk. the new kernel is placed next to the old kernels as a separate booting option. It does not replace the currently active kernel. you pick the new kernel in Grub to boot from it. does it boot? keep using it. doet is not boot? pick the ...

Why I want this? Like you said yourself, newer kernel gives advantage of using newer drivers ( in the Linux terminology - modules ). In addition , newer kernels have security improvements and fixes. Would you suggest me to do so? The decision is yours. If you don't care about using newest drivers and pretty sure you won't be a target of malicious ...
