Cannot upload Linux Image



  • I have a Dell D620 Laptop running Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon and I want to upload the image so I can deploy the image to my 100+ other Dell D620’s. Trying to replace Win XP you know. I have not had success with either 3.16 or 3.14+ Kernels. Any suggestions?

    Fog Version - 1.2

    [quote=“Joseph Hales, post: 41509, member: 18131”]Here is the mistake I made fog now has 2 kernels bzimage and bzimage32 both should be updated to the same version and the kernel update page will name them correctly for you just download the 32bit version and the 64/32 bit version both with the same version number. I was used to .32 in which you only had bzimage if your like me when you click on one and saw the bzimage32 file name presented you may have assumed it was wrong and renamed it which leads to kernel panics and other assorted weirdness. Take note I am by no means an expert but It did happen to me.[/quote]

    The autonaming you see now is only in current SVN releases, not the 1.2 release.

    The “Published Kernels/Old Published Kernels/Unofficial Kernels” dropdowns are also new to SVN where 1.2 only had Published Kernels and Unpublished.

    That all said, the way the naming works for use as “defaults”

    Kernels with ARCH type x86_64 are typically the bzImage
    Kernels with ARCH type x86 are typically bzImage32.

  • OK, I tried Official Kernel 3.14.2 and got further into the upload but it hung on “Mounting File System” and does not go any further. Going to try latest unpublished Kernel 3.16.2.

    Same Result.



  • Sorry, a lot of this is new to me and bit over my head. I will try the latest published and unofficial Kernel and see if I can get it. Another D620 laptop that I cloned using Clonezilla was able to upload it’s image on another schools FOG server yesterday???

    I don’t see how the 620 can be a 32 bit pc?

    It automatically selects the needed architecture at load out. bzImage/init.xz for 64 bit. bzImage32/init_32.xz for 32 bit.



  • I have tried various Kernels both x86 and 64. I frankly do not know which I tired last. Other than renaming the Kernel during install is there a way to display the Kernel version being used. The host PC is 32 bit old Dell Laptop D620, which kernel do you recommend?


  • Senior Developer

    the picture in the above post looks like you may be attempting to load a 32bit kernel on a 64 bit init?

    Which kernel are you using? If you’re using 3.14.2 or higher, are you using the x86 or x86_64 kernel?

  • I installed Linus from an ISO CD and did not format the Windows XP hard drive first. So I do not know.

    3 partitions - 2 in lvm format however boot MBR partition is not??

    I don’t think it’s respective of the kernel directly but rather the volume format the disks are in. Is the disk in ext format or lvm?
