    Thumbs down 10.04 kernel update 2.6.32-61, various problems

    Something in the latest kernel/headers upgrade from 2.6.32-60 to 2.6.32-61 breaks sound support.

    Applications that attempt to access sound hang: vlc, totem, etc.

    Have no idea whether this has to do with alsa, pulseaudio or what. In any case, something is seriously broken.

    Re: 12.04 LTS kernel upgrade to 2.6.32-61 breaks sound support

    That's a 10.04 kernel.
    Are you on a desktop or server?
    10.04 Desktop is end of life, which may, or may not, account for the problems.
    10.04 server, though, is still supported.

    I am corrected; is indeed 10.04 Desktop. What change has suddenly fomented this?

    Re: 10.04 LTS kernel upgrade to 2.6.32-61

    To me, this latest update brought another major issue: just after authentication, everything hangs in the graphical environment (no background image, only a subset of windows which were open at shutdown reopens, dialog windows draw only their perimeter, but contain no menu items). After a poweroff restart, had to revert to 2.6.32-60.

    Just for info, I was trying to update to 2.6.32-61.124_amd64 (server version), onto which I had installed ages ago Gnome-2 desktop.

    Should it be necessary, I'll be happy to provide other logs (dmesg, ...)

    Thumbs down 10.04 kernel update 2.6.32-61 bricks computer

    I've just applied security update Linux 2.6.32-61-generic-pae to my venerable Ubuntu 10.04 PC. It boots up OK, but any attempt to do anything (run a program, access a file etc.) causes a total machine hang. I can boot into 2.6.32-60 OK via Grub at start-up, so it's not the PC itself at fault. How do i either undo the update, or edit the Grub list to default to the earlier kernel ?

    I have a similar problem. Just applied the security update to 2.6.32-61-generic-(x86_64) on my (also venerable and up till now ultra reliable 10.04 system) and whilst it runs, Thunderbird and Firefox both hang if you try to select one of the File, Edit, View etc drop downs from the top of the window. Also Thunderbird hangs if you try to add an additional recipient to an email being written or touch the "To" field to change it to "CC" etc. Not tried to may other apps as yet but as these two are the most important I'm just reporting on these. I too would like to know either how to back out the update or even better have it fixed asap.

    It's time for a fresh install of 14.04. Support for 10.04 desktop ended more than a year ago.

    tobiz: Much the same - curiously, it allowed me to run the System Monitor until I tried to switch to the File Systems tab, at which point it hung.

    mörgæs : I thought it was still supported for security issues (i.e. this fix) ?

    Yes I know support stopped for 10.04 long ago but I don't want what you get with 14.04 and after 40 years in IT I know "if it ain't broke don't fix it!" And up till now 10.04 ain't broke plus my experience of upgrading is it takes far far too long to sort out the issues it generates, my computer has to run reliably all the time and up till now it has. There's some issue with 10.6.32-61 that trashes some part of gnome is my guess.

    Same thing happening here. I've been using 10.04 on an Atom-based PC for years only to connect to my office PC, which is 12.04. I'd hate to have to do a rebuild.
