[SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.1.0-1-amd64 won't boot

Postby dcihon on Thu Nov 17, 2011 11:53 am

One of my updates installed the 3.1 Kernel.
When I choose it from the GRUB menu I end up at a command line login screen.
I think the problem has to do with my nvidia card but I am not sure.
It doesn't seem nvidia is loading.
This is my nvidia card:

Are you tracking Sid?

There is no kernel update on the testing servers (which means it won't be on incoming or latest either).

OK, you are using Sid, that explains it. Can't help you then, I don't use it.

Keep an eye on this thread viewtopic.php?f=198&t=70230

That is where all the Sid breakages seem to end up.

I've got the same problem just installed LMDE and updated it. Also changed some repo's to what the package manager recommended and it only boots to the command line? After I installed LMDE I tried to update it and the package manager recommended I change some repo's. Should I have left them as standard for a more stable environment?

There is something very strange going on here. If you have just downloaded LMDE then you cannot possibly have kernel 3.1. Not even Mint 12 has 3.1 by default as far as I know, the only way you can have kernel 3.1 is to be tracking debian sid repos. By default LMDE comes with the sources pointing to the 'latest' update pack, this is a very long way from 'sid'.

In a default install the /etc/apt/sources.list file should look something like:

Code: Select all
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import backport romeo
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest testing main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/security testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://debian.linuxmint.com/latest/multimedia testing main non-free


If yours points in any way to 'sid' then it is corrupted and you will have to reinstall unless you want to have a bleeding edge and potentially unstable system.

Just changing your sources.list file to the one above will not work because you would have to uninstall every package you have already installed from the 'sid' repos.

One thought though is that installing a new kernel does not uninstall the old one, so if you originally had kernel 3.0 installed then you should still be able to boot into that kernel by choosing it from the grub screen at boot up. This might get you going, but you will still have a very non standard LMDE system if you have used any other packages from Sid.

dcihon,
can you, please, give us 2 outputs:
Code: Select all
inxi -r

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



@matthewh3, yours is a different problem, i think, if you have "just" installed, changed repos according to the recommendations and update.
you should open a new topic and we'll try to solve your issue there :)

well, there's something not good going on for sure
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 34 not upgraded.

it's not a healthy sign, you need all those xorg related pkgs.
but i don't understand how they are held back:
- what have you installed from deb http://frickelplatz.de/debian/ sid main (might be some conflict here - but if was just chromium i don't believe it)

try the following (i just want to see the error msg to make some sense out of it)
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-core

Does your GRUB list an older kernel? If so, boot into it and try your update again.
Life is too short to waste it on Microsoft.

I am using the 3.0 kernel that is in the GRUB list.
If you look in my post above you can see what running the update returns.

Perhaps the nvidia proprietary driver you use isn't compatible with Linux 3.1 and you need to update it to a newer version.

You'd better ask that at Debian Sid. We only provide support for Testing here.
