|[ubuntu] I deleted my kernel|
Yesteday while trying to get right kernel because the one i was using
aparently had Xen support which does not work with nvidia, I ended up
deleting my kernel. Yeah, it's stupid but that is what I did.
"sudo apt-get remove 'uname -r" or something like it.
the thing is I had deleted some which were showing to be for 64 bit
using the synapic manager and asked me if I wanted to keep the
menu.lst and I answered yes. But running it from the shell was
Question: can I reinstall the kernel using live cd?
Please I have valuable data in here. University thesis. So I need to
get that infor atleast.

fsck during boot causes kernel panic on newest kernel, not older
The forced check at boot, with the new kernel, doesn't
seem to like my home partition, as it will have a kernel panic about
1/3 of the way through it. The screen is scrambled, so I don't have
any information from that screen as to what is happening/causing it.
fsck has successfully run on the root partition since the new kernel
image was applied.
fsck runs on my home partition just fine from
the older kernel and once that is done, I can then reboot to the new
kernel without problems.
Booting the Live CD and running fsck on
all partitions does not show any issues with my dri
|[ubuntu] Deleted my kernel . . . I think?|
Well the long and the short of it is I think I accidently deleted my
kernel. This folder got deleted: /lib/modules/2.6.24-24-generic
However with apt-get update I was able to at least get the computer
going again by booting to the 2.6.23-23 kernel in grub.
though, I can't use wireless, don't have sound, and I'm missing my
"JUNK" folder on my desktop with all my music and stuff in
Should I just deal with these problems individually, or is
there an easier way to fix them all at once?
Hey all, I have a 'silly friend' who deleted various older kernels via
the command line using rm - now evidently, despite the most up-to-date
kernel being present the machine doesn't boot. This originally
happened due to a full distro upgrade, followed by a botched poulsbo
kernel-header install and then the removal of previous kernels (for
some unusual reason the oldest kernel was automatically booting, i
suspect due to it having functional display) 'my friend' now has
nothing, computer won't get into anything, not even grub.
suspect the solution is to boot using a live cd, mount the fs and to
do an apt-get install kernel blah (generic ofcourse) and then to auto

I just crashed one of my Hardy boxes (containing valuable data, of
I was doing a cleanup and found a large number of old
kernels. So, without thinking about it too hard, I decided to delete
(Synaptic) all except the latest 2 (i.e. 4 files- linux-headers and
linux-image, I think).
I should mention that this box is a dual
boot (Win98 SE).
Now the ubuntu won' t start. It gives the grub
(old version) dual -boot menu and sits with any attempt to run ubuntu.
Win98 runs ok still.
Is there any way to replace/restore the
missing kernel without damaging the valuable data files.
other alternative, AFAIK, is to copy off
|[ubuntu] Cannot boot after deleted old Kernel|
I'm a bit sketchy on the details here and I cannot boot in to confirm
anything. Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS. I have the only copy of important photos
on the HD. Also it is encrypted.
I followed this link:
and deleted what I thought were old kernels.
However when I put
dpkg -l linux-image-*
into the terminal it listed several kernel versions but as far as I
can remember they were listed as
'linux-image-3' (then a space and then more details about the
Further down the list there was: 'linux-image-5' so I presumed that l
was safe to enter:
sudo apt-get autoremove linux-image-3
Is there anything that I can do? Thanks in advance
