Re: Kernel panic after -Syu! Please help

"modprobe -a 8139too" should install it, then " /etc/rc.d/network start "

should get you connected

also check the package was fully downloaded earlier

"ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg | grep -i ker*"

will show you kernels in your cache, then you can install them with pacman -U

Re: Kernel panic after -Syu! Please help

when the system is booting, it says something about eth0 not being foung

my rc.conf is as follow:

#
# Interfaces to start at boot-up (in this order)
# Declare each interface then list in INTERFACES
#   (prefix an interface in INTERFACES with a ! to disable it)
#
# Note: to use DHCP, set your interface to be "dhcp" (eth0="dhcp")
#
lo="lo 127.0.0.1"
#eth0="eth0 192.168.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255"
eth0=dhcp
INTERFACES=(lo eth0)


i'm going to uncomment the first eth0 line just to see what happens


also

#
# Module to load at boot-up (in this order)
#   (prefix a module with a ! to disable it)
#
MODULES=(!usbserial !ide-scsi 8139too nvidia)


so i really don't understand what's going on.


i upgraded the kernel to 2.6.13 and tried to boot, still getting the same kernel panic msg.
what other package may I upgrade?

Re: Kernel panic after -Syu! Please help

accuracy of code is paramount


eth0="dhcp"

the speechmarks are needed, if your running hwd or hotplug you shouldn't need modules listed unless they are missed by hwd or hotplug.

can you post your /etc/fstab as if you have reinstalle dthe kernel you should no longer get this.......

also grub menu.lst lets try and get you sortef!! 8) [/code]

Re: Kernel panic after -Syu! Please help

if i do an "lsmod" no modules are listed, also i found out that the system can't locate ANY module. in the booting, i get a MODULE 8139too not found also MODULE nvidia not found.

if i want to insmod manually, what's the extension of a module file?? that "8139too.ko"  is a module file???

thanks again, i can't stress how much helpful you're being!

Re: Kernel panic after -Syu! Please help

yes it is, i think dont worry about insmod use modprobe as root...

but if you edit rc.conf as per my last post you will probably have a working connection on reboot......

it is eth0="dhcp"

please post rc.conf fstab and grub menu.lst

your error is undoubtedly with one of these......

Re: Kernel panic after -Syu! Please help

surprisingly after i booted from the old line of menu.lst

kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/part2 ro video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=791

it worked. i don't know why udev isn't working on my system

[root@universo ~]# uname -r
2.6.12-ARCH


i was installing a newer kernel when i had the problem, and as it did install i didn't think that this would work (but i did test this seeting - but not after reinstalling the kernel)

anyway, know i want this kernel to be with me forever, will

IgnorePkg   = kernel26

do it??

thanks a lot mpie, if you're in brazil anytime, fell free to contact me tongue
