Kernel Did Not Upgrade? / Not In Grub List -- SOLVED --

Postby BadFinger » Sun Apr 08, 2012 2:38 pm

Update pack 4 went fine, but something went wrong with the new kernel/Grub list.
Running uname -a still shows 3.0.0-1-amd64 kernel.

Running update-grub gives me:
Generating grub.cfg ...
Found background image: linuxmint.png
Found Debian background: linuxmint.png
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.0.0-1-amd64
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-3.0.0-1-amd64
Found memtest86+ image: /boot/memtest86+.bin
Found memtest86+ multiboot image: /boot/memtest86+_multiboot.bin
Found Linux Mint Xfce Edition (1) on /dev/sda1
Found Linux Mint 12 LXDE (12) on /dev/sda6
Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sdb1

I have LMDE installed on sda3.
I'll take some newb help from someone .. ..I need the new kernel to install and show it in the list upon boot-up.

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.2.0-2-amd64
sudo update-grub

:D Oops, sorry. Thought they were dependent. So, BadFinger did you:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.2.0-2-amd64 linux-image-3.2.0-2-amd64
sudo update-grub

Ok, thanks everyone, the option is now there and it boots into it.

Now I have the black screen though after grub selection using 3.2 kernel (nvidia 580).
usually 'nomodeset' option will get me to desktop, but not this time.
So now I'm off to solve another problem, and have to still use 3.0 kernel until then :(

I've read about this Nvidia problem before. Did you ever try the option modeset=0 or nouveau.modeset=0?

modeset=0
or
nouveau.modeset=0
?

I guess you have to rename the first post in this thread to mark it solved, am I wrong?

yes, I already marked it solved.
i tried 'nomodeset', and the options you suggested, but didn't help.
I add them after the word 'quiet', hope that was in the right spot.

I have no idea. ;) As far as I've read it's usually after quiet splash.

kernel problem is solved.


Which one?

if you are booting into 3.2 kernel and nvidia fails try this: reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms

Hi zero, thanks for stopping by, (cuz I know your busy), with the final fix.
Now I have the new kernel and can reach the desktop.

And by the way .. ..LMDE with MATE (or Mate .. heh) is AWESOME.
All those complaining for the last few months hopefully will be quieted down now.
