Software - Upgrading from Ponos to 3.2-2.slh.2-aptosid-686

Post subject: Upgrading from Ponos to 3.2-2.slh.2-aptosid-686
I installed Ponos about a week ago and everything went well.
This morning I thought I'd upgrade and did a apt-get update followed by a dist-upgrade after doing an init 3.

There was an
Error! bad return status for module build on Kernel 3.2 etc.
and make.log has
configure: error: --with-linux argument '3.2-2.slh.2-aptosid-686' is neither a kernel version string not a full path.

How do I recover from this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Here i have the same problem. To fix i remove the latest kernel and other packages like plymouth and initrafs-tools.

      Quote:
apt-get purge initrafs-tools


After re-install the initramfs-tools and reinstall de latest kernel 3.2-2.slh.4 now everything it's ok here.

Sorry for some mistakes because i'm not a native english speaker.

Hi Hiltongil:

Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunately, when I try to remove the
kernel, there is the same error and the old kernel is removed. I tried to
remove the initramfs-tools package, bu the system first tries to remove the
3.2.2 kernel first. SO no luck. I am still with the 3.1.6 kernel of Ponos.
All attemps to purge or remove the offending kernel, which I think is 3.2-1.slh.2
have failed.


Thanks anyway.

Sebastian

humm here when i remove the package initramfs-tools the system tell me than the lest kernel would be remove and ask me if i want remove or not. Than i mark "no" after the initramfs-tools was removed. Maybe you should try reinstall the package with apt-get install --reinstall initramfs-tools or download the package from debian repositories and execute dpkg -i (package).

Your welcome.

Hi x-un-i when i tell to remove the initranfs-tools, i want tell to first remove the package and after install again. Here i can't install the lastest kernel. Every time i received a message about errors. Infortunaly i wasn't save to post here. So i try to reinstall the initramfs-tools but the message persist. After i remove the package initramfs-tools with the command: apt-get purge initramfs-tools and the system ask me if i want remove the latest kernel, so i answer "no" the lastest kernel installed keep installed and the package initramfs-tools was removed. Them i reinstall the initramfs-tools with the command: apt-get install initramfs-tools, so the package was installed without problem. Them i run the command: apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade and them the last kernel was install without problems. Let me ask something more. You are from Brasil? I see the sentence: "Será que o diabo perdeu a virgindade?"

Best regards.

without knowing the message that you are getting, no one can help.

even if you are on init 3 ( Textconsole) you have the mouse activated ( gpm) unless you have deinstalled or deactivated it. then you can save the message through cut+paste into a file or send it into some pastebin ( using for instance aptosid-paste).

answering to the other question, i'm from the opposite side of the Atlantic

configure: error: --with-linux argument Heelo x-u n-i:

I am now on 3.1.6 and I wouold like to build the latest, which is, I think
3.2.4 . The apt-get dist=upgrade has downloaded the 3.2.4 package, but has not
completely instlled it, because it gets bogged down with the error with the
3.2-2 kernel and calls the whole thing off. I would like really to get rid
of 3.2-2 altogether, but I am unable to remove it. I don't know how to proceed.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Further to my earlier post, I thought I'd inlcude the following,
hoping it gives you further information:

I peridocially do an apt-get update followed by a dist-upgrade,
hoping that my problems would some how disappear. This is what I
got this morning:

keeping the error messages secret does not help anyone Twisted Evil Wink specially yerself

you have been bitten by this bug

To fix it redo your grub devicemap

      Code:

grub-mkdevicemap --no-floppy

Hi x-un-i:

grub-mkdevicemap --nof-floppy worked like a charm. everything seems OK now.
I presume your comment "keeping the error messages secret does not help anyone"
refers to the "configured not to write appports reports". I had nothing to do with
that. I installed aptosid directly from the iso, and did not do any configuring
of any file on my own. In any case, where and what do I do to correct this?

Thanks very much.
