Title: Linux Lite Kernel
Post by: Jerry on June 14, 2014, 02:54:41 PM
So that we can better support new hardware, we've starting producing a custom Linux Lite kernel. I've yet to decide if this is something that will be offered post-release of each Linux Lite, or with the release.
When compiling this kernel, there is special emphasis on hardware support. I painstakingly go through the entire kernel and add as much hardware support as possible.

For this to be a success, I need your help.
We need people with the following graphics cards: ATI, Intel and nVidia.

These kernels will be beta quality until I am satisfied we have stable, reliable kernels available in both 32bit and 64bit versions. If you'd like to participate, do the following:

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.15.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.15.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

NB: This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty. If you have a spare pc or laptop lying around with the above graphics cards we really need your feedback and your results. Also if you are using VirtualBox, these LL Kernels will not work with it. You'll have to use the stock kernel that ships with LL if you want to use VirtualBox.

We will only release the latest stable mainline kernels, if you're not sure what these are see here - https://www.kernel.org/ (https://www.kernel.org/) it will be the kernel version in the yellow box on the right.

Not sure what is the wanted way to report. Run some data collection script or app or just verbal report.
I just installed Linux Lite. I love as minimalistic Ubuntu derivative as possible. Created several with woof2 and woof-ce myself.

Linux Lite is great ! I have netflix already working, touchpad works great. Only problems have been kernel 3.13 related. I installed available Linux Lite 3.15 kernel right away.
I have compiled several kernels. So I know what it means to go through those compiling options, package the kernel, create a build and test it. And then recompile it again...lol.

I have acer V3-571G laptop with dual graphics. Inbuild intel and Nvidia 710M. They have been pain in the somewhere. With 3.15 kernel those problems are away. I can use intel and nouveau.ko kernel module does not misbehave anymore. Not also in this Linux Lite 3.15 kernel. I can suspend and resume. With 3.13 the resume didnt work, it resulted to the frozen desktop. I had to remove nouveau.ko to get suspend to behave. 3.15 resolves this problem. Also Huawei-E5776 behaves now, it does not drop net connection as 3.13 kernel did. Improved driver I suspect.
All other hardware components have been working so far....Powertop shows decent battery consumption, meaning nvidia graphics has been shutted down as it should be. No need to use acpi_call kernel module ( meaning no need to compile it, install it and make the shutting down script to be placed to be run at every boot ).

Looks good so far.

If somebody needs more information about intel/nvidia dual graphics, I can post information.

Happy to try out on various desktops and laptops - however they are all workers! Is there a way to do this from a Live CD or have a special Iso to run as a live CD. Tks.

Just throwing out an idea here.  Don't feel obligated to do this if you're not comfortable with it.  (I haven't done this myself, but am thinking of doing so sometime later this week or next weekend.  I'll report back whether or not I ran into the potential problem I point out at end of this post.)

If you've got the room to spare on your hard drive, you could just make a 20GB partition and do a second LL installation to that as your "testing" system.  If something breaks -- no big deal.  It won't affect your real "working" system on the other partition(s).

If you do that -- DO NOT install the bootloader to the MBR!  Instead, install it to the same root partition as the test system is installed to.  Then boot with your "working" system and just run sudo update-grub to add it to the boot menu.  That way your main working system keeps control of booting the computer.  If a new kernel on the testing install causes boot problems for the test system, it won't affect your ability to boot into the main working system.

However, now that I've said that, this might turn into a problem:  https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=441.0 (https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=441.0).  Read through that thread and you'll see that there may end up being a problem when you try to update-grub to add the testing installation.  If you go through with installing a testing LL and the boot entries don't end up booting the testing LL, then post back and we'll have to try adding an entry for it manually like one person ended up doing.

GF,

Firstly, have just reread Valtam's  initial post above. i.e. objective = better support for new hardware.  Most of the machines I am likely to encounter are older i.e should work on current LL2.0 ?  Therefore no need for updated kernel testing on these?  Is that so?

If not, then

 Re your options - and as a newbie to linux, possibly one or two steps too far for me,  for now. and as the test machines are not mine, not practical.

My idea to was try out the new Kernel on a number of my neighbours' machines, mainly running Windows, possibly XP OS. i.e boot up a "beta" Live CD and see if it runs smoothly, and note  the make, model, system log, video card etc.  i.e minimum of messing about and get as broad a range as possible - all silver surfers and  "older" machines I think.

My collection  (3) of old cast off laptops are running LL 1.08 or 2.0 without problems.

However my daughter's  HP G60 (sssslow on Vista) laptop with GeForce 8200m Video card was temperamental with LL2.0 Live CD so dared not dual boot. There were always problems rebooting from the live LL.2.0 CD back to windows Vista.  Vista wanted system check routine each time.   This may have been because the closing of the Live CD never completely shutoff the laptop, seemed to hang after ejection of the CD stage leaving the "feather" screen. 

My HP DC7700 USDT  (Intel Q 965  Express Chipset)  desktop had problems with monitor oscillation  with LL2.0 full installation, so currently forced to run Linux Mint Maya (reluctantly)- saga reported previously. 

Therefore keen to get the latter two "problems" solved.

Just lost a long post I wrote due to "Internal Server Error" -- not the first time this has happened and very annoyed.  (Not at you newtusmaximus.  Just needed to vent a little frustration.)

Sorry, don't feel like typing out everything over again, so just reducing to bullet points.

Hi, i install the LINUXLITE 3.15 kernel en what a surprise. My pc  get  more memory than the normal 3.15 kernel. 1004,6 ipv 1003,2.

Question : is there a site where the linuxlite kernel stand. I was looking but can't find him.

Thanks.

Hi there,
I've installed the 3.15 kernel on my ASUS laptop, NVIDIA GEFORCE 740M, using the NVIDIA driver ver# 331.38.
No problems at all so far. All applications are working  normally, YouTube Mozart concert, VLC playing DVD movie, Xscreensaver running GL-extras. NVIDIA X-Server settings are all functional, as are e-mail, browsing, Office writer, etc...
I have all my data on an external HDD (SATA to USB3 connector box), as the OS is resident on internal SSD. If the kernel breaks, I can either remove it via the terminal, or simply reinstall LL. It doesn't take very long, and I have my edited FSTAB (for ssd optimization) on the HDD.
Hope this helps.. Is there anything in particular that you would like me to try ??? I am retired, and do have "some" spare time on my hands..although, right now, there are two German Shepherds looking alternately intently at me, and at the front door !!!
Oh, Happy Canada Day to us Canucks, and to everyone else....
Regards
Richard

Was working on original Kernel.

As an aside - I know it should be in software section- but Google Earth still does not work as "unsupported graphics card" even after the kernel upgrade - Works on this machine with Puppy Linux 5.7.1 and Xorph  Puppy upgrade..

Your sources list probably needs to be refreshed first after initially installing the system.  If you run sudo apt-get update before running those commands, it should then work.  However, if you just did a fresh install, run the regular "Install Updates" (Menu -> Install Updates) to install all initial updates first.  Then install the new kernel afterwards.  (If you run "Install Updates", that will automatically update the sources list so you won't need to run sudo apt-get update before the kernel upgrade in that case.)

Installed updates found missing 3.15 .
Kernel 3.15.0 installed faultlessly and all appears to be flying. Toshiba A10, Celeron R 2.0 GHz, Intel 855GM integrated Graphics - running at 1024 x 768 60Hz.

Very Happy Bunny!!  Brought much faster life back into the old machine!!

Installed Kernel 3.15 earlier and just restarted (was busy looking for more material for a new LL tutorial  :D). Seems to have improved boot time by a second or two, but I can't be too sure. If it did, excellent!

Running on an Acer Aspire 5750 w/ Intel Core i5 (2nd Gen) CPU @ 2.3 GHz, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500Gig HDD and Intel HD Graphics 3000. My specs can be found here (http://www.cnet.com/products/acer-aspire-5750-6438-15-6-core-i5-2410m-windows-7-home-premium-64-bit-4-gb-ram-500-gb-hdd/specs/), excluding the Windows 7 of course, hahaha.

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback on 3.15, overall looks like it went pretty well.

I'm currently putting together a 3.16 for both 32 & 64bit. Thought I'd change things up a little this time around and do the 32bit without PAE. This at least gives one version for all time that is non-pae. Both should be ready soon, will post a new announcement.

LL2.0 fresh install, updates installed, Kernel 3.15 All working OK Toshiba Sat Pro A10  1GB RAM Celeron  R 2 GHZ, Intel 855 integrated Graphics Screen 1024 x 798 60Hz 3COM PCMIA wifi

Very stable and fast!!  Had to play about with keyboard settings to delete Eng/US default.

Great bit of work LL Team. Thank you.

Q for Valtam.

Given your "one non PAE version for all time" staement above:-

What is the effect of running 32 bit PAE on a non PAE machine i.e. old laptops. Reason for asking- does this mean that LL development for old laptops will cease OR

Can Old laptops utilise extra memory in linux if BIOS  is the limiting factor.

Newbie learning curve :)

New 3.16 Linux Lite kernel is available for 32 & 64bit machines. As per usual, please read the warning below. The 32bit kernel is non-pae so would especially like to see feedback on this.

Look forward to your feedback :)

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.16.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.16.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

WARNING: This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty. If you have a spare pc or laptop lying around with ATI, nVidia or Intel graphics cards we really need your feedback and your results.

Hi Valtam - Not sure how relevant my feedback is as I'm running it in Virtual Machine here currently..

All seems to work ok though as a post above I had to first run sudo apt-get update ( in fact twice ) to get it to install.

One thing noted so far is that it runs a little heavier on resources ( not sure if this was expected ? )

i.e.

3.15 cold start - 155Mb ram
3.16 cold start - 176Mb ram

3.15 with vlc - 187Mb ram
3.16 with vlc - 220Mb ram

Not being picky but that's all I have found..

Keep up the Great Work !

Kurt

LL2.0 clean  install, Updated then new kernel. Tosh A10 reported earlier as OK.

Odd issue using Midori browser and Firefox.  ( not noticed on chromium as yet.)

When typing in search field, and on some web pages,  some lines are randomly "blacked out" as if with a magic marker - as if they had been censored.

Highlighting the line from the end,  left click mouse hold and dragging pointer backwards, reveals the wording  underneath as it were.

Does not happen in Libre Office.

Had not noticed this in LL2.0 before the Kernel change, but to be fair had not used the browsers fully before updating kernel.

Any ideas.  1 GB RAM and Intel 855 Vid.

SOLVED for Firefox thanks to SCOTT(0) pointer given below. Ta very much :).

Midori problem still exists. I will contact them for suggestions and report back.

Yep, something got missed when compiling the kernel for ram recognition. Sorry I am the bearer of bad news. I will be uninstalling . 3.16 I guess. No sweat as I am a team member for AntiX and am used to testing new kernels for Anti.

Tested 3.15 kernel on a desktop (Intel i5-4670K Intel HD Graphics 4600) works great so I have pushed it to my laptop(Intel Core i5-560M Intel HD Graphics). So far my laptop boots faster and work better.


I pushed the 3.16 kernel to the desktop (Intel i5-4670K Intel HD Graphics 4600) fails to boot. (grub does not see a kernel) oh well just a test machine. I will reload and try again.

New 3.17 Linux Lite kernel is available for 32 & 64bit machines. As per usual, please read the warning below.

Look forward to your feedback :)

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.17.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.17.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

WARNING: This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty. If you have a spare pc or laptop lying around with ATI, nVidia or Intel graphics cards we really need your feedback and your results.

I will be keeping this kernel on here for awhile since I see no show stopping issues like on previous kernel tests.
Looks like a winner Valtam. I will install and test on my Compaq CQ57 later to see if that hardware likes it also.

I made a text file while in 3.17 kernel. Then rebooted into 3.13. Hence why both readouts are doubled together in code tags.
So I will be un-installing the 3.17 after I post this. So for future testers. Always keep a good working backup kernel and test everything 1st before deleting old kernel.

Otherwise Valtam. This 3.17 works pretty good on this Compaq.

Installed 3.17 on this Dell E5500. This SSD drive has tested the other kernels on the Compaq CQ 57 and the Compaq showed no love for the kernels 3.15 on up. Same on Dell XT2 Touchscreen Laptop. Here is hoping there is some love coming from this Dell E5500.
I will be testing this and putting the kernel through it paces later.

It is always a good sign when no kernel panic kicks on on older gear.  :D

Nice one rokytnji. 3.18 should be out soon. I'm personally running 3.18-rc5 on LL 2.0 no problems, smooth as butter :)

Jerry, I need at least 3.17 so that my touchpad works. Do you recommend I wait for you to add the necessary modules to the custom kernel or should I install the latest from mainline?

You can try 3.17 from the LL repo.

Weird, I didn't see it before. I was able to install 3.18-rc6 from Ubuntu mainline anyhow. Thanks though.

I just upgraded kernel from 3.13 to 3.17 and i have only one problem , i don`t have Sound :)
I have a Toshiba Tecra M5: Core2Duo 1.66Ghz , 4gb Ram , Intel GMA 945.

@satty is there any specific reason you require 3.17? If it is causing an issue, go back to what you were using.
Title: Re: Linux Lite Kernel
Post by: Jerry on December 08, 2014, 06:44:35 AM
3.18 Linux Lite kernel is available for 32 & 64bit machines. As per usual, please read the warning below.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.18.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.18.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

WARNING: This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty. If you have a spare pc or laptop lying around with ATI, nVidia or Intel graphics cards we really need your feedback and your results.

The D620 is now running 3.18. - currently getting a kernel panic defaulting back to 3.13.  I will push it to the NUC this afternoon and see if it does the same.

Thanks for the custom kernels, Jerry - just installed the latest LL 3.18. It's very handy as my little Chromebook's touchpad and touchscreen didn't get support until 3.17 so bleeding edge is a must for me.

3.17 kernel was a keeper on here as all hardware worked. I just installed this so still have to put the kernel through its paces.

Little question , does LL kernel follows latest stable kernel ! Or it just stays on the main release , say 3.17 , 3.18 kernel .

Thanx .

Just feedback/info in case you need it for anything. I have yet to reboot with 3.18 on this Dell xt2 touchscreen and I thought the error might help.
Or not. Will see tomorrow if This Dell gets love or not. Anyways. Here you go.

Looks good so far (login sound worked, pen on touchscreen works, finger on screen works, and posting wirelessly)

I will check later if the love is spread evenly with temperature, ram and cpu usage, sd and usb slots, you know. The kernel check list stuff. But no show stopper that I can see so far in the short time I am posting this.

Good Morning. Thanks for the morning grin  :) .

I thought last night. What is Jerry talking about? Move my post to the Kernel forum section. I thought I had posted there already. Like my previous posts in the past.
Being a gullible trusting soul sometimes.
I walk right to the end of the walk till the chain jerks.

So are you having fun. Jerking my chain?  I enjoy a good laugh at my expense. 
Being a self assured scooter tramp with no insecurities.
Or. Am I so thick in the head. I miss the point entirely?
Which has been known to happen also.

Either way. I still don't know where to move my post to. Because. It is already dare. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAOR6ib95kQ)

Funny how I can stroll through Linux file structure comfy like. But get lost in the woods on forum stuff.  :D

3.19 Linux Lite kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.19.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.19.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

Hello!

Just DON'T use Lite Cleaner to remove the old kernel until you're sure the new kernel didn't break something you're dependent on - ESPECIALLY if you use older hardware. That said, I will probably wait to upgrade the kernel until after I use the 2.2 upgrade script, and deal with any consequences that may arise as a result...

Kernel upgrades should only be carried out if you have bleeding edge hardware that is not currently supported in your default kernel. If it ain't broke...

Can this be used on dual boot netbooks?

I don't see why not, at the end of the kernel install grub update is run so your entries should stay the same. Not a bad idea to keep grub-customizer handy just incase, and, you should only get the kernel if it offers something you need, like new hardware support etc.

Hello!

YMMV, but I've done the kernel upgrade on several dual-booters - one of then a netbook - with no issues. Of course, my previous warning not to remove the old kernel too quickly applies...

Hello!
No go on 3.19.0 for me - locks up at login screen.

Had to update my bcmwl-kernel-source to the latest version to install 3.15.0. I get errors on certain programs in the kernel boot sequence (for example, evince), but the programs seem to still work.

If I notice any more odd behaviors AT ALL, I will also be rolling back to 3.13.24. Just posted all this to illustrate Jerry's point as to WHY it isn't always best to upgrade kernels...

I also tried 3.19.0 on a Celeron N2807 ~ Bay Trail based mini pc.
I wanted to see if it fixed a WiFi issue, no joy on the WiFi.
and it also introduced video tearing issues again, like 3.15.

So dropped back to 3.13.0-24 and all is back to as it was.

I am not worried/sweating the failed module build. I don't use virtual box anymore anyways.
Any testing I do on external drive media like usb or sd. Just info for the thread is all I am posting.

It booted. So past the 1st hurdle.

Safe to ignore rokytnji. You can even go into Synaptic and remove everything VirtualBox if you don't use it, will also get rid of those errors in future kernel releases, as well as speeding up start-up and shutdown slightly. VirtualBox will always error on new kernels.

"the future's bright, the futures Linux Lite"

Not my own,
From a very successful marketing campaign in 1994 in the UK for a new Mobile Service provider
For weeks there was a series of TV adverts with just pictures and a tag line of "the future's bright, the futures Orange"
It had everybody talking/guessing what it was for.??, Possibly one of the first "viral ad's"

29.1MB of space removed. 17 packages.

Not really worth removing IMO for a kernel error. But posting info in case some one is more  about keeping
things tidy in their  install than I am. I am going to leave mine be. Above readout is from remove
package. Not the completely remove package option in menu.

Edit: Forgot to post also

virtualbox-guest-dkms will be removed
virtualbox-guest-utils will be removed
virtualbox-guest-x11 will be removed

will be removed which frees up about another 11MB of space on my hard drive. Still not enough for me to bother with it.
A kernel image and header install takes up more space than that. Startup speeds are not a thing for me also.
I am loosey goosey like that.

I have  NVidia card  [HDA NVidia], device 7: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]    my computer is connected to a projector I  get better video quality after changing the kernel and the picture is  clearer easier to read text etc. but if I use the recommended Nividia driver the fonts and symbols  on the desktop get so tiny that they become unusable so I stick to the XorgX driver

I checked that video card better its actually    NVIDIA Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 220] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

I have no idea if this makes any difference,only hope I can help a little. Thanks for all the hard work!

4.0 Linux Lite kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-4.0.0 linux-image-linuxlite-4.0.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

Installed Kernel 4.0 on Toshiba A10 ( as per profile below) and deleted 3.13 using "Tweaks".  All running smoothly and fast .  Loads of life in the old "girl" yet;  The Toshiba that is , not my better half :)

Title: Re: Linux Lite Kernel
Post by: Zead on April 14, 2015, 11:59:54 AM
I had a suspend problems on all kernels I ever tried. On my ASUS F5VL laptop.

I tried these 3.15.0 and 4.0.0. kernels. No luck. I reverted back to the default Lite 2.4 kernel.

My laptop automatically wakes from the suspend. So I have to type in:

echo USB > /proc/acpi/wakeup
echo USB2 > /proc/acpi/wakeup

Then it stays suspended. BUT! When I resume from suspend, the suspend no longer works and I have a excesive CPU usage, around 45-100% "kworker" process is eating the CPU, and some another "K" process... I hoped it would be fixed in linux 4.0.0. :/

That's something you guys probably can't fix, right?

Anyway, kernel 3.15.0 always gave me a TSC calibration failed, and my Wi-Fi didn't work.

By the way, what does this mean? This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty.

I removed the kernels over Lite Tweaks (btw it always gave me "error: KERNELS", is that normal?), is there something else I should do to revert my system to original state before I installed these kernels? I don't know what "tty" is...

Is it normal on a GNU/Linux to have a glitchy suspend? Or is it just my laptop? I tried many distros, all had the same problem. How it works for you all?

It means you shouldn't use these kernels unless you know how to get out of a tight spot if the sh#t hits the fan. This is why we put that warning in. Unless you need a specific kernel for a specific reason, the stock kernel that ships with LL should be fine for most peoples needs. New kernels are only useful if you have brand new hardware or are using for example a new file system like btrfs, or you're waiting on a specific patch etc etc. Cheers.

And I just install them in case they speed up features and supply security fixes.
Some kernels boot faster and use less ram than others.

But I am not shy when it comes to testing kernels. I always keep a good backup.

Hello!

Welcome to Linux Lite, and welcome to the forums.

Your need to reboot from recovery mode most likely means that the 4.0 Linux Lite kernel probably won't work for you. I have machines here that will not run the 3.19.0 kernel, which I believe is the highest Linux Lite kernel currently available. I had to revert back to a kernel where everything worked.

You will probably have to 'fall back' to the previous kernel. Boot from recovery mode, and the misbehaving kernel can then be uninstalled in Synaptic Package Manager (Install/Remove Software)...

hi, im trying to install last driver omega form amd and the log show this error . 

"NOTE: If your system has logged the missing packages required for installation, install them in the order as per the log file to resolve package-dependency issues.
fglrx installation requires that the system has kernel headers.  /lib/modules/4.0.0-linuxlite/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
Install kernel headers using the command apt-get install linux-headers-4.0.0-linuxlite."

the headers are already installed   , this the question ? 
my graphic card is r9 290  whit a amd 8150 processor   i will try whit kernel generic ..... 

pd: im on linux lite 2.4 64 bits  , kernel 4.0 ....

4.1 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.
Linux Lite Kernels are now compiled using the clang compiler - http://clang.llvm.org/ (http://clang.llvm.org/)

Thanks to the new 24 thread workstation, I'm now able to compile, build, package and release the Linux Kernel within a few hours of the mainline release.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-4.1.0 linux-image-linuxlite-4.1.0 -y
Ignore any errors in the terminal.

Look forward to your feedback. Thank you.

It is seems to skip the linuxlite repo like it is not there.


Current linuxlite repo:
deb http://repo.linuxliteos.com/linuxlite/ (http://repo.linuxliteos.com/linuxlite/) beryl main




Fixed the issue; I removed 2 default repo's I did not need through synaptic last week and I think I had to add the repo back which in turn added a source repo over binary..... but you did point me in the right direction... I restore the default source.list and off to the races...

Try this: sudo service vboxdrv setup, if still not working, uninstall/purge VirtualBox, sudo apt-get remove --purge virtualbox (back up anything you need to first). Then get the latest VB here - https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads)

NB: This should NOT be tested on your everyday machine unless you know how to remove the kernel from a tty. If you have a spare pc or laptop lying around with the above graphics cards we really need your feedback and your results.


From the original post in page 1. If happy. Don't use it. I use a 3.16 kernel on my touchscreen atom netbooks because that is what works best on them. 4 series are too buggy on them.

Fresh install today on both computers so will wait and see.
I expect no problems though.

Hello!

Installed 4.1.1 kernel on one laptop. So far, so good. I don't expect any issues on any of the other machines, as most of them are fairly new.

I only had issues on one old HP netbook using the 3.19 and 4.x kernels. I just rolled it back to the previous one...

Will Kernel 4.1.2 be available soon 4.1.1 is proving buggy for me..

I wonder if the 64bit version is more buggy than the 32 bit since the 32 bit works fine on an older machine..

Hello!

FWIW, my advice is to 'roll back' to the previous kernel. I'm with Jerry - unless you need something that only the latest kernel features, stick with what you have that DOES work.

Since nothing ever gets removed (not a bad thing, mind you), the kernels just keep getting bigger and bigger. The larger the kernel, the less resources left for everything else. It gets even worse if you have a lot of them and never remove any...

Hopefully, the next version of Linux Lite will keep the current kernel because everything is working great. If not and there is a problem with a newer kernel, I'll have to learn how to roll back to the one in 2.4.

Not speaking for Jerry, but I think shiping with the current LTS kernel will be the case. And still providing the latest kernel release in the lite repos. So that users get the best of both worlds. I see no reason currently to ship the newest kernel on the iso. If anyone has a good reason counter to this tho...  please correct me.

Can someone remind me what the "the current LTS kernel" is, since I have lost track with various rash updates?

I solved some of my bugs by purging xorg-edgers and recofiguring, but I still have a whole list of error messages at boot and occasional freezes.

First, LTS is long term support. Basicly atm 4.1 is the current stable. while as other versions of the kernel are the long termm support kernels.

And why did you need xorg-edgers? if it's an older machine your no doubt better off with an older kernel. save for some bug in a version of something you need/want. Using ppa's (even semi offical ones) can be dangerous.

My guess is 3.13 since my original install had it still in place taking up space.

You can find out on yours with

Code: [Select]
dpkg --list | grep linux-imageHmmm. Forum reply box does not seem like opera-developer 32  64bit. Because I do not see any size in reply but preview shows them. I am not even messing with size in reply toolbar. This is all on auto.  I guess I won't post here in Opera anymore.

Edit: Yes. 3.13 it is

"CHANGELOG

Firefox 36.0.4

Kernel 3.13.0-24"

Edit: Hopefully fixed post in firefox.

I have followed the advice given here and rolled back to
3.13.0-57.

I went into that kernel from the boot screen instead of 4.1.1, then  used Lite Tweaks to remove 4.1.1 then did
sudo update-grub

I don't know if this is an approved method but it seems to have worked.

Have had a second go at kernel 4.1.1 and solved most of my problems  by fixing the nvidia driver problem.
I needed to install bumblebee so I could chose 252.30 in prime rather than nouveau drivers.

All seems well now apart from the Wifi not working as the broadcom driver which is installed ( and working on other kernels) isn't seen...

Post by: Wirezfree on October 21, 2015, 05:47:12 AM
@Jerry,

I have a small Atom based PC that is on the opposite side of the house, WiFi on the device was already flaky, it would drop very frequently, 5/6 X a day.
So I did a new driver install (https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/network/rtl8723be-pcie-wireless-network-adapter-issues-informationfix/msg17506/#msg17506), and it would run for 3~4 days, then maybe drop, a re-start of the network manager would fix it.
Given it is not a critical device, I thought I would try the latest kernel. You mention to ignore any errors... are these the errors:

First Error
Code: [Select]
Setting up linux-image-linuxlite-4.2.0 (0010) ...


 Hmm. There is a symbolic link /lib/modules/4.2.0-linuxlite/build
 However, I can not read it: No such file or directory
 Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/4.2.0-linuxlite/build


 Hmm. The package shipped with a symbolic link /lib/modules/4.2.0-linuxlite/source
 However, I can not read the target: No such file or directory
 Therefore, I am deleting /lib/modules/4.2.0-linuxlite/source


Running depmod.


Second Error:
Code: [Select]
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.2.0-linuxlite (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox-guest/4.3.10/build/make.log for more information.


Third Error:
Code: [Select]
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.2.0-linuxlite (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox-guest/4.3.10/build/make.log for more information.


This is not a Virtualbox Guest, and Virtualbox is not installed.


NOTE:
I decided to roll back to 3.13, because even though it upgraded, and everything appeared to work...
I did not like the "tainting kernel" error in the dmesg log file:
Code: [Select]
[1.312015] sdhci: module verification failed: signature and/or required key missing - tainting kernel
Also there is no SD Card device on this pc.


I now have a workaround for the dropping wifi.
I re-start the network manager daily via cron.

One question after installing the new Kernel do we have to un-install the old one? if so how do you do it?

Thank you!
Title: Re: Linux Lite Kernel
Post by: Wirezfree on October 22, 2015, 08:01:42 PM
Hi,

Once you have installed the kernel, it is recommended to keep the old one until you are sure everything works correctly.
I installed the latest 4.2.0, but I had an error in the dmesg log file indicating a kernel taint,
I could not find any reasons why, or any fixes, I did not want to take a chance so I removed it.

So I re-booted and on the start-up grub screen I selected the original 3.13.kernel
Then once re-booted I went into Menu > System > Lite Tweaks and used the "Kernel Removal" option, shown below.
When you are on the kernel removal selection screen, you need to select "2" items, it gives you instructions.

From my notes:
"Whenever you change Host Kernel, do:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-dkms
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

This forces Vbox kernel modules to re-compile, apparently?


I have yet to change the kernel on my main PC with VBox.
But googling shows this to be a common suggestion after kernel updates.

You've added a PPA at some stage for Java by the looks that is broken. Remove the PPA and try again, should be fine then. Then install the new kernel again.

@Jerry.

Whilst investigating an issue with Systemback (https://answers.launchpad.net/systemback/+question/278875) not allowing you to create new live system, which appears to be kernel related.

I found this related to kernel 4.2 (http://news.softpedia.com/news/linux-kernel-4-2-6-officially-released-has-dozens-of-updated-drivers-495938.shtml), will you be doing an update from 4.2.0 to 4.2.6.?,

or will you just provide the initial releases. 4.2.0 , 4.3.0 , 4.4.0

The 4.2.6 article mentions "fixes" to "overlayfs" one of the things the Systemback dev referred to.

I am using proprietary driver "NVIDIA legacy binary driver version 304.131 from nvidia-304-updates" for GeForce 7000M/nForce 610M

I going to install xorg driver and install this one or similar one back and will see what happens.

I have already had "8" exchanges with the Systemback dev.. We pinned it down to lack of overlayfs.

If I search for overlayfs, it's in 3.13 , But not in 4.2.0/4.3.0, They apparently need patches adding.
I found this when installing LL on friends NUC, and needed 4.20

Here is my exchange: https://answers.launchpad.net/systemback/+question/278875 (https://answers.launchpad.net/systemback/+question/278875)


I do not have anything with 4.20 ~ 4.30
I suspect Systemback will currently not work for anybody with those kernels on LL, and now possibly 4.4

I have no experience with Systemback :/ But it does not look very good. I can't select a target partition when wanting to create a live image.

Hi,
I have used it with external USB Sticks & Drives in 2.6
You need to select the target in top right box "Storage Directory" usually found under /media/username/
I keep a usb stick available for each PC, to any accidental overwrites.

I'm trialling a new kernel build method. It basically enables all modules/drivers in the kernel, thus providing maximum new hardware support. This saves a ton of time going through menuconfig and selecting all unchecked boxes. Only downside is it means much larger kernel. I'd love for a few game souls to try it out and provide feedback. To trial this you should already be comfortable with the cli.

64bit only, and only on real hardware (no VM's)

https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/linux-headers-linuxlite-4.5.0-rc3.deb (https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/linux-headers-linuxlite-4.5.0-rc3.deb)

and

https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/linux-image-linuxlite-4.5.0-rc3.deb (https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/linux-image-linuxlite-4.5.0-rc3.deb)

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
reboot.

The above files will be deleted after a few days.

Thank you :)

With backups & systemback ISO's in hand, bravely I went. I installed the 4.5 kernel on a newer computer:
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E6600 @ 3.06GHz
Intel Corporation 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics
Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family High Definition Audio
Linux Lite 2.8 x32
  I'd have to say on this computer that the LinuxLite specific kernel is a hit for me. No graphic streaking, no problems of any kind to report. Going to try it on an older computer (a HP) & an older computer that seems to have trouble with newer kernels (a Lenovo). I previously had the 3.19 generic kernel, & it was fine. On the install of the 4.5 kernel I did get the error messages you mentioned. But on a system reboot the new kernel shows & is working well. Very happy about this with Linux Lite 3.0 just around the corner.

I would stay away from putting the newer kernel on old hardware unless it is absolutely necessary. Good to hear it's working well on your E6600 machine :)

Added Kernels 3.13.0 & 3.14.0 as requested. This brings the total number of kernels Linux Lite offers to 15, which from the little research I have done, makes us one of the largest supplier of custom kernels for any Ubuntu based distro, with 2Gb worth of kernels.

Code: [Select]
2.0G   ./pool/main/l/lite-kernel
These are untested in Linux Lite 3.0 so you must install them in a Virtual Machine first before installing on your main computer.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.13.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.13.0 -y
OR:

Code: [Select]

I ran your above script & got a failure. I ran it a second time & it worked perfectly. As you mentioned, I did get an error message (which I ignored). Rebooted & am running kernel  3.13.0 as I write this. Double checked everything in grub-customizer & then deleted all the other kernels in Lite Tweaks/Kernel remover. Sorry all of you had the extra work, but thank you very much for putting all those extra kernel's up for us. Doing so has allowed me to run LL 3.0 x64 on my 3.33mhz HP, with 4gb. memory. And when the kernel support expires, I'll move up to the next kernel. Nice & easy to do now - Thanks again!

It seems there's an odd quirk when you run the script "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-3.13.0 linux-image-linuxlite-3.13.0 -y". I wouldn't of noticed except I just ran it on my netbook, after doing it on my HP. I really don't know if it's a bug or not, but it happened exactly the same way, on two different computers. It seems as soon as the script generates an error message it installs kernel 3.13.0 AND 4.4.0-24, if you don't have it. For example my netbook had kernel 4.4.0-21. I wouldn't of noticed except I read it as the error messages happened, and all three kernels showed up in grub-customizer, and on the boot splash. Once I made sure that 3.13.0 was the first kernel boot in grub customizer I rebooted & removed the others in Lite Tweaks/Kernel remover. All's good. I suspect this only happens if you don't have the latest kernel version installed.

Noticed on the Mini and this maybe just due to the hardware of this old system and not kernel 4.7..

When in Firefox I'm unable to scroll side to side (left to right)
Example.. code tags on the forum that contain a lot of info in the code box that require up/down and left/right scrolling.. Cannot click and drag side to side..

I rebooted and double checked still occurred.. If I boot back to kernel 4.4 the issue goes away.

Just putting this out there should folks install 4.7 on older stuff - something to look for before removing previous kernels...

As version 6 of the dependencies doesn't appear  to be available (5.9 indicated) should I install a kernel earlier than 4.7. Which one would you recommend?

Thanks Jerry for replying so promptly.  I have a problem with LL2.8 regularly hanging at boot-up and shutdown in "set-up 1" in sig. It's not a UEFI issue as it occurs if installed on a GTP disk (set to either UEFI or Legacy mode in settings) or on an MBR disk (Legacy only).  I thought updating the kernel might help though to be quite frank am a bit clueless on this...
I should add that I'm using SSDs in my setup.

Thanks Jerry, I'll follow your advice and leave upgrading to a new kernel version well alone for now.
Should I now run sudo apt-get autoremove to remove any packages of kernel 4.7 & dependencies that may have downloaded or installed? 
The Lite Control Center indicates that Linux 3.13.0-93-generic is still the installed kernel.

You mention that there's a "google key error" in the terminal's output? What is this?  I use DuckDuckGo as my search engine (instead of Google), so I've not agreed to Google's terms and conditions - I don't know if that has anything to do with a google key error?

This shouldn't show up with your regular updates.  The Install Updates utility in the Linux Lite 3.x series will give you security updates for your kernel, but not version updates.  If everything is already running well, just continue to run Install Updates, and you'll be fine.

4.11 Linux Lite Kernel is now available for 32 & 64bit machines.

This is the first Linux Lite Kernel that includes our Firmware package 'linux-firmware-image-linuxlite' (a.k.a linux-image-extra). Thank you to @light_user for this suggestion.

Open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-headers-linuxlite-4.11.0 linux-image-linuxlite-4.11.0 linux-firmware-image-linuxlite-4.11.0 -y
NOTE: If you have the nVidia proprietary graphics drivers installed, this kernel may break functionality with nVidia. If you have the nVidia proprietary graphics drivers installed and you still decide to go ahead with this kernel install, you should be competent in repairing your graphics drivers. If you aren't, DO NOT install this kernel.

Ignore any errors in the terminal.

IMPORTANT: Only install this kernel if you need it or if you are adept at getting out of trouble from a TTY.

Thank you for implying my suggestion so fast !!!
I've tried the new kernel (installed the three packages that you mentioned) but I feel regression:
My laptop model is: HP-6450b, and it uses internal Broadcom wireless driver:  BCM4313, but the new kernel doesn't
work well with this chipset and doesn't show my wireless network.
I return to kernel 4.8 and everythings works great :)

@light_user you get that. Newer kernels drop drivers etc. This stops the kernel ballooning over time.

This Broadcom chipset is very popular. I thought that the extra package ("linux-firmware-image-linuxlite-4.11.0 ") will add support to common drivers but although it writes the specific driver it doesn't work well.

I understand now that is an advantage to installing new kernels. I think they also fix bugs in kernels, like the mad cow. As I posted before "Will it be available by Lite Update when it won't be a problem?"

@Coastie
I hope this may help enlighten...

Will a "new" kernel version be available via Updates -- I would say for now most likely not -- although there are tools that can install kernels as well as remove  (Lite Tweaks - kernel removal)..
Again this is something that one would need to understand what their getting into, how it may affect their machine and how to get out of; not necessarily "safe"...

As for "fixes" those typically are patched via Updates incrementally an example:Kernel 4.4.0 -> 4.4.28 -> 4.4.53 etc.... (looking at lite tweaks one can see the various installed kernels)

Thanks, @firenice03.

I just did an update and got a kernel update. I guess from what you wrote it was an incremental update. I have been removing the old kernels or increments by Lite Teaks after rebooting and running my computer for maybe a day. Is that safe or would it be better to just leave the old kernels or updates installed?  :-\
Title: Re: Linux Lite Kernel
Post by: firenice03 on May 01, 2017, 07:30:34 PM
@Coastie 

Most likely an incremental - - Lite tweaks classifies Kernel Removal as cautious.. As there is always a potential.. I think you are fine in doing so keeping in mind..
There are 3 or 4 entries per kernel version.. Ensure you are removing those associated with each other and are removing older kernels..

I don't believe the in use kernel is selectable.. But know which kernel you're running prior. This can be done with the following command...
Code: [Select]
uname -r
Obviously don't remove your current - unless having problems with it. Which you would most likely of booted into an old kernel if you were having problems...

As such, I like to keep the previous kernel or 2 just on the in case (all 3 or 4 entries of each)..

Example: I have 4.4.0-70, 4.4.0-75 and 4.4.0-77.. I also have 4.10.0 installed so I would remove 4.4.0-70 being the oldest knowing all has worked fine since then.
I would defiantly keep 4.4.0-77 should I find 4.10 doesn't fit my needs and I need to revert my kernel back...
And 4.4.0-75 could go either way being the middle child  ;) as such I may let it hang around a bit more  ;D

Ran the 4.11 kernel update on the 32-bit mini.. Install process was smooth, no errors to report. All appears to stable..  :D :D

For those debating on older hardware (Noticed on Dell Mini)
I did find the littlest of things - in both 4.10 and 4.11 on a laptop touch pad I couldn't click and drag windows around (terminal/Firefox/etc), using an external (USB) mouse this was not an issue.
*Most likely due to my hardware being old and not the kernel*

I'll try to hit the Kangaroo in the next couple days..

I've been running linux lite on the intel DG965OT mainboard.  I think it is almost a year now!  Under all the kernels I have tried, I experienced shutdown issues. I'm not going to go into to many details about it because I have already in older posts. I noticed that Linux Mint is now using 4.10 with Mint 18.2. After upgrading the kernel to 4.10 on that other machine, I decided to try it on Linux Lite.  Ever since I upgraded to 4.10 this mainboard  DG965OT seems to be shutdown better.  How long is linux lite going to support 4.10?

Currently I have been running the computer on 4.12!  I haven't noticed much of a difference between the 4.10 and 4.12.  I know the monitor, keyboard, and mouse all work but I haven't tested the sound yet.  Jerry I don't know how your managing the kernels for this distro.  But wikipeida says 4.10 EOL (maintained from February 2017 to May 2017)  Are you taking care of security for every Kernel that is in the lite tweaks?   I'm just wondering about how all of this works...  Thanks for making a wonderful distro.

I've installed 4.16 on two laptops, one with an old Intel dual-core and the other with a dual-core AMD, through the Linux Lite Tweaks applet. Update was super simple and both now are actually running faster than with the 4.4.0-122 previous kernels. I have two workstations to consider updating, both running proprietary NVIDIA GPU drivers. Obviously, I'm concerned with driver breakage. Can you tell me whether the NVIDIA repo drivers have been corrected to work with 4.16? Or can anyone else in this forum tell me if they have had success (no driver breakage) with 4.16? TIA

@pmbenterprises this is the reason we put the nVidia disclaimer in. If a person decides to try their luck, they need to be able to get out of the situation on their own ie. proficient in the TTY at reversing their actions. In the past I myself, have used the latest kernel with the latest nVidia .run file, that's been my preference. Easy to undo a mess that way.

Post by: pmbenterprises on May 02, 2018, 07:45:31 AM
I've thought about using the proprietary binaries. Past experience was messy, but that was some years back.

By the way, I made an attempt to implement the 4.16 kernel on my main workstation, with a GeForce GT 730 video card and dual monitors, following up with the installation of the 390.48 proprietary PPA-provided driver. It worked, except LL 3.8 wouldn't recognize the existence of the second monitor. So I'm back to the 4.4 kernel. I've stayed with the 390.48 driver, though--no problems at this time.

It appears to me that if I had a single monitor output this would have worked. Good news for some. Oh well...another time, then.

Thanks for your help, Jerry.
