[Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

This is what I get when I upgrade to the latest kernel 3.9.6-1. Downgrading to 3.9.5-1 fixes the issue.
Machine will start, boot to login manager, but my mouse does not work, keyboard does not work and I can not ssh to the machine either.

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

My guess would be that when you upgraded your kernel, your /boot was not mounted.  Therefore the version directory in /usr/lib/modules was different from the actual kernel version on disk.  But this is not really enough to go on definitively.

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

Thanks for your reply.
I do not have separate boot partition, so I am pretty sure it was not unmounted at the time of upgrade.
There were no errors upgrading kernel.

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

Ok, I found the problem.

I used to have grub-legacy and switched to syslinux with recent changes with merging /bin /sbin etc. folders.
But I have multiboot and did not noticed that although I had different root I was still booting the same kernel on all 3 partitions. So when I upgraded one partition to 3.9.6, this went fine, but I still booted 3.9.5 kernel from the partition that was not yet upgraded.
Stupid me. I did not realized that syslinux worked differently in this regard.

I tried to make it work with multiple partitions, but specifiing partition with mbr:identifier as wiki says did not work so in the end I switched to grub 2 and now it works.

Like I said, "the version directory in /usr/lib/modules was different from the actual kernel version on disk".  smile

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

Well, not really, version on that disk was exactly the same, just the booted kernel was different. smile

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

I'm surprised that you only just recently started having problems with this.  Do you use UEFI with a shared ESP or something?  Or a shared /boot?

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

I reckon there was no kernel upgrade since I switched from grub-legacy to syslinux, therefore I had everywhere the same kernel, so no problem.
I have none of those you mentioned above.

Re: [Solved] New kernel breaks module loading

Ah, I see, it was the switch (and presumably newly configured bootloader) that messed it all up.  That explains it.  Thanks for clearing that up in my head.
