Cannot download new kernels



  • Is there a way to manually download kernels from this site:
    https://fogproject.org/kernels/kernelupdate_bootstrap.php

    I have ready the wiki on manual upgrades, and did all that, but I think my kernels are still old. I am trying to get a Dell Optiplex 7040 to image, and it crashes during registration, or scheduled imaging. Hoping a newer kernel will solve it for my old 1.1 install.



  • Well, that url is exactly what I needed!! however I gave up and made a new vm with Fog 1.5, it was able to image the 7040 with no issue… I just didnt want to deal with the partimage vs partclone thing, but it is looking good now.

    Are there any error messages you’re noticing when it crashes? Does it hang? Or does it actually shut down the PC?

    @totalimpact To check the kernel version schedule a debug deploy task for a client not having the kernel issues. Boot it up and run uname -a when you get to the shell. Note that down, shut off the client and delete the task from the web UI.

    Now to download and install a kernel manuelly go to https://fogproject.org/kernels/ to see if there is a newer version than what you noted down. If so download that kernel image 32 bit and 64 bit. Put those as bzImage32 and bzImage in /var/www/fog/service/ipxe on your FOG server.
