upgrding kernel stuck at Generating grub.cfg ...

Postby Rave[N]Black on Wed Aug 08, 2012 7:47 am

Hi All,

I wanted to update my Mint 13 KDE (64bit) to KDE 4.9 so I've added PPA, updated and run
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
.

As pat of the uprade Mint pulled kernel 3.2.0-27.

My prolem is, that kernel install is getting stuck at

Code: Select all
run-parts: executing /etc/kernel/postinst.d/zz-update-grub 3.2.0-27-generic /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-27-generic
Generating grub.cfg ...


I've waited for a couple of hours for it to generate grub.cfg, but it doesn't.

running
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub
does nothing as well. It does not produce an error or any kind. Cursor simply jups to a new blank line and stays there.

I've tried removing new kernel with synaptics, but it gets stuck at the same point

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

As there was no reply, I have restored my installation from the image and successfully completed upgrade to kde 4.9.

Even though upgrading kernel breakes nvidia+bumblebee support on new kernel, the original kernel works fine.

How do I clllose this thread?

If you had added the ppa then used the Update Manager or

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade


you would have just updated to KDE 4.9 as you intended.

Thanks for the reply. I did try
Code: Select all
apt-get upgrade
first, but it left quite a few packages out. It does not matter now as I've already restored my system from an image and it is fine now
