Kernel Panic /Update



  • I’m trying to Register a Optiplex 3030 AIO which is not on the compatibility list yet. I get to the FOG Menu and I do a full registration. It quickly fails which appears to CHuck to be a KERNEL PANIC.

    I’m using a 0.32 FOG on UBUNTU 12.04 LTS 32 bit.

    Now, I’ve never over the years needed to change kernels, so I was treading lightly. I went to KERNEL UPDATES and picked ver 3.14.2- 32 bit. I figured the latest is the best choice?? I renamed it bzImage3030 and then I went to SERVER Settings/ TFTP Server / FOG_TFTP_PXE_KERNEL and changed the path to fog/kernel/bzImage3030.

    Doing this allowed that new kernel to be used, but it still failed. I then saw Tom Elliott’s tag line in an earlier thread.

    I followed the suggestion:

    https://mastacontrola.com/fogboot/kernel/bzImage32 chown -R fog:root /tftpboot​
    THe last line (chown) did not work, BUT I am now able to register the Optiplex3030 and pushed an image out to it! YEAH
    My question is what kernel did I pick up?? I’m worry a bit on how it will affect my existing clients. CAn anyone shed some light on this?
    Thanks for all your work!

    OH, and to further answer the post, Having an updated kernel should not hurt any of the other hosts you have either. It’s just a kernel, nothing more.

    Yes, on My summer list is to move both of my 0.32 servers up to the latest.

    Thanks for the help everyone.

    You have the latest that’s on my server. 0.32 is very old so you don’t see all the real updates.

    Beyond that, that kernel should do the trick for you.

    DOH!   Now I understand.
     
    Result:
     
    /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage: Linux kernel x86 boot executable bzImage, version 3.19.1 (root@debian64) #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Mar 10 18:46:02 EDT 2, RO-rootFS, swap_dev 0x6, Normal VGA
     
    So,  the Kernel Updates within the Fog server only go  up to 3.14,... So What I have now is that latest?  3.19.1 ?
     
    thanks

    The location should be

    file /tftpboot/fog/kernel/bzImage

    Run this command to see what kernel version a particular bzImage is:

    >file /path/to/bzImage
    >```
     
    Tried:
    /tftpboot/fog/kernel$ file /path/to/bzImage
    
    Returned:
    
    /path/to/bzImage: ERROR: cannot open `/path/to/bzImage' (No such file or directory)
    
    Do I need to be in another directory?  OR did I mis-interpret the command?
