Kernel Update crash

Postby rushman on Wed Jan 14, 2009 8:57 am

Hi from rushman,
I have twice tried to update the kernel from the package manager,
But each time on reboot it stops with kernel panic.
Is there another way?

Please only use mintUpdate for updates/upgrades
You probably don't get all the packages updated you need to update

Hi Husse,
thanks for the reply.
this was from Mint updates.
It will also not load in recovery mode.after kernel panic.

OK - I hope the old kernel works
If so just forget about the new kernel....
It's always possible to uninstall ...

My tip is to be careful about uninstalling kernels, it's better to just edit out the entry in the startup list.
Uninstalling it can possibly pull away stuff you actually need, this happened to me when I tried to uninstall 2.6.28, which ultimately lead to a fresh install!
(20 minutes, all settings intact, thanks to a separate home partition! - Imagine that in winblows - even if you make a repair install it goes on for bloody ages and hardly any settings are remembered!)

I agree with Zwopper - that's why I did not give instructions for the uninstall, but I should have given an outright warning :oops:

Hi to all,

Is there some confustion in Ubuntu as to the kernel situation?

We have 3 computors, 2 desktop, and 1 laptop all are 64 bit.
In the package manager updates show one desktop computor
as 2.2.27.9 kernel upgrade, on the other 2 it shows the kernel
upgrade 2.6.27.11. The later 2 will not boot. The 2.2.27.9 does.
