Newer kernel than 4.1.18 for OpenMandriva 2014.2? [SOLVED]

Hello,

at http://mib.pianetalinux.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=1 there is latest compiled kernel 4.1.18 from February 2016 which is quite old. Is there plan to compile newer kernels for 2014.2?

Thanks

kernel-release 4.6.0 is in main/updates

https://abf.openmandriva.org/openmandriva/kernel-release/build_lists#?page=1&per_page=25&ownership=everything&save_to_platform_id=128

Thank you very much. That helped me. I always used to look at pianetalinux forum about new kernels and at http://abf-downloads.rosalinux.ru/kernels_4_1x_personal/repository/openmandriva2014.0/x86_64/main/release/

:wink:

OpenMandriva now has its own ABF system.

My main/updates is configured as,

http://downloads.openmandriva.org/mirrors/openmandriva.2014.0.x86_64.list

and I don’t have kernel 4.6 to download.

What is wrong? What do I do?

Thanks

I have main/updates configured as:
http://mirror.yandex.ru/openmandriva/openmandriva2014.0/repository/x86_64/media/main/updates/

What is the result of:

urpmf --filename kernel | grep “4.6”

now kernel name is kernel-release
try in mcc

The result is a big list (see below) but when I type

uname -a

Linux localhost.localdomain 4.1.18-nrjQL-desktop-1omv #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Feb 25 12:52:31 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I see 4.1.18!

This is the list,

Should I go to kernel-release?

I tried to update to 4.6 but was not able to install it since newer files (kernel 4.6) conflicts with current ones (nrjQL-4.1.18)!

How to safely proceed to update kernel?

Thanks

Yes kernel-release-desktop (or kernel-release-desktop-latest)

See if it’s the same problem as here

I tried om-welcome and removed unused packages. Conflicting of kernel-headers files is still present.

I cannot follow italian. I saw something like,

urpmi --allow-force

which, I suppose, would install the new kernel-release-headers files anyway. Is this safe, is this that italian topic is all about?

Thanks

Probably, you have more than one repository configured.

You might also try this:

rpm -e --nodeps kernel-headers-4.1.18-1.x86_64

then

urpmi kernel-release-desktop

Thus, the rpm database is cleaner.
Note that you will not be able to build new modules for the kernel 4.1.18, that would be the case anyway.

Done. After removing kernel-headers 4.1.18, installation went fine.

However, during reboot I got a message somewhat like this,

  (ext4-fs) could not mount sda2 as ext3 due to incompatibilities

what that means? Is this a problem?

According to what I’ve found here and there on the web, it seems that for some reason the kernel tries to mount the partition as ext2, then ext3 before trying ext4. If the system works, it is a non blocking issue.

You might try this workaround (found here):

Happy this is non blocking issue.

Thanks for the link but before copying I tried a diff

$ diff /proc/mounts /etc/mtab

and saw no difference. Thus, it seems that something else have been done at that link, supending automount?

/etc/mtab and /proc/mounts are now symbolic links to /proc/self/mounts
The workaround supposed that mtab was a regular file.
I don’t see the link with automount.

Imo, you can safely ignore those warnings.

I have found a kind of explanation here. This is not a real answer to the issue however.
You might try to see if this setting (CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23) is present in you kernel config file. I installed 4.6.0-server in vbox and it is not present.

grep “EXT[234]” /usr/src/linux-$(uname -r)/.config

For example, I get:

CONFIG_EXT2_FS=y
CONFIG_EXT2_FS_XATTR=y
CONFIG_EXT2_FS_POSIX_ACL=y
CONFIG_EXT2_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS=m
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_POSIX_ACL=y
CONFIG_EXT3_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_EXT4_FS=y
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_POSIX_ACL=y
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_SECURITY=y
CONFIG_EXT4_ENCRYPTION=m
CONFIG_EXT4_FS_ENCRYPTION=y
# CONFIG_EXT4_DEBUG is not set


        

Hope this issue is really “unblocking” but there are at least another blocking issue related to the update from 4.1.18 to 4.6.0 for those who use nvidia: the new kernel-release-devel-latest is not “known” by the system as the one to use to build nvidia drivers! MCC tries to install kernel-devel-latest instead. It seems a naming issue. I will file a bug on this.

New bug number 1773.
