Kernel roll-back



  • I have been able to download the 2.6.35.7.tar.bz2 kernel. it’s extracted on my desktop but can someone please give me a step by step process to install the kernel?
    I’ve tried
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.35.7 linux-headers-2.6.35.7-generic linux-image-2.6.35.7-generic
    with no luck what so ever.
    i’ve also tried updating the repository and it only goes back to 3.5

    You can install a kernel manually by downloading it from the sourceforge project page, under the Files header, Kernel section. Just pick one and download it.

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/

    Once you download it, backup the existing kernel and move the one you downloaded.

    
    sudo cp /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage.backup
    sudo mv [downloaded kernel] /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage

    I think you’re confused about downloading a kernel, and downloading the kernel source files intended for compiling a custom kernel.

    You can a precompiled kernel from the sourceforge page for the FOG project. If you want to compile your own custom kernel, there is a wiki article to show you how.

    You can also use the kernel download page inside the FOG webUI.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to explain to a noob! I GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!

    I tried the commands then checked my kernel:
    $ dpkg --list | grep linux-image

    and it’s still showing the wrong kernel.
    I’ve tried using the WebUI and keep coming up with tftp error. changed my passwords for tftp and storage in config.php file to no avail.
    otherwise i would have had the KS kernel a long time ago. I read somewhere that sometimes the WebUI doesn’t work/may not be 100% compatible so I figured that I’d just have to do it via CLI.
    i’ll look into compiling my own kernel if I can’t seem to get the “guy” up and running!
