What is the exact command that i have to use to remove the symlinks? i am afraid to break something. Should i just delete the vmlinuz26 , kernel26.img and kernel26-fallback.img????


I did this (before I stumbled upon the correct way to delete them), opened up terminal, switched user and removed the symlinks manually.
My boot folder now only contains : initramfs-linux.img, initramfs-linux-fallback.img, vmlinuz-linuz and some LTS related files.
Have no problem booting.

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

Ok, searched the forum and web and didn't find anything. So I normaly use kernel-ck, but today I updated the main kernel, because I want the normal kernel as a fallback. So I tried to start it and after the udev events, I get a lot of errors, that the root filesystem is read only. So the system does not start. I changed the vmlinuz26 etc., as it is said on the front page and I also deleted the symlinks. Has anyone an idea, why my root filesystem suddenly gets mounted read only?

Best regards!

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

After I changed the boot options and rebooted, I had the following message on my screen:

 
0.494517] pci_root PNP0A08:00: address space collision: host bridge window [mem 0x000cc000-0x000cffff] conflicts with Video ROM [mem 0x000c0000-0x000cf1ff]

...and then a black screen.
I had to add to the boot arguments the nomodeset option and then I could log in, but with some video issues. the collision is still happening

I'd like to know if anyone went on this too and solved it without adding nomodeset option.

update:

I already found a post discussing this issue.

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

Today grub was updated in repository, and I have updated my installation. Are there any additional needed steps for grub updating besides updating with pacman?

I don't mean anything related with kernel 3.0 (file name changes, links and so on). I mean something like grub setting up - do we need it after grub updating?

pacman doesn't re-install grub in the MBR or elsewhere after it upgrades it, so I think it is necessary to use install-grub or to re-install it in grub command shell, to really use the new grub release.

Yes, of course. I'm aware of it smile

The aim of new thread (which was merged into current one) was to clarify this area with possible experts suggestions - when and what do we need to do when grub was updated.

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

Ok everyone I need some help here.  After update I am sitting with non working system. Grub error 15 . After update I just copied lines concernig old kernel from old menu.lst to new one. Missed to notice wrong path for a new kernel. What should I don now? These tread didnt help.

edit: ok, problem solved with menu.lst edit on the fly
choose apropriate kernel line
press e
choose second line and press e
add /boot in the begining of the path
change sda3 to one that respond your system. in my case was sda1. press esc
go to third line. press e
add /boot in the beginning of path. press esc.
go to second line (kernel line) and press b

this should boot system. than change in terminal menu.lst again and save changes.

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

This may be a little late but I just wanted to give a big thumbs up and a pat on the back for developers who worked on getting Arch to kernel 3.x

I held off a while on upgrading figuring things would break. I did my netbook last week and my desktop this weekend and both worked like a charm right out of the box.

I was expecting things to break and go wrong but so far it was as easy as the move from say 2.6.38 to 2.6.39.

Now both systems seem to boot much quicker and seem more responsive.

I looked around for an appreciative thread concerning the transition and didn't see one. If a mod knows of one please move this post there.

Again great job folks and well done. I appreciate all the hard work that you put into making Arch a great distro.

Thx

George.Harmony, not really, so we'll stick this into a generic Linux 3.0 thread for now.

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

i hope this is the correct place for my problem.

i have installed arch but i can't boot it ,grub error 15

my /boot/grub/menu.lst file -> http://pastebin.com/5P7cPkve

my /dev/sda has sda1 ->/boot   sda2->swap  sda3-> /   sda4->home (the default setting to prepair the filesystem)

i have changed the names in /boot/grub/menu.lst but nothing.

Since you're missing the initrd, you probably have this problem: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/26344

Re: [SOLVED] Linux Kernel 3.0 Update

Perhaps with grub2 and a separate boot partition the correct grub2 command is:

grubmkconfig -o /grub/grub.cfg.......  and is not:

grubmkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg.....

Which is correct for a separate boot partition?
