View Full Version : [ubuntu_studio] Generic kernel install

October 8th, 2009, 07:44 AM
I'm using the ubuntu studio rt kernel and can't upgrade or install anything because of a bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-rt/+bug/440589

I need to install the generic kernel to fix this problem. How can i install the generic kernel and boot it up?

I've tried to install the linux-generic package through synaptic and in the terminal, but it always starts trying to update openoffice.org-emailmerge and then freezes. I can't update or install anything. Is there any way out of this?

Please help. At this point, my rt kernel is freezing quite often and i need to install the generic kernel and update the system. I'm afraid if i find no way to install the generic kernel without the installer jumping to "openoffice.org-emailmerge" updates, i will need to reinstall ubuntu studio from disk.

try downloading deb packages from here for example: http://www.ramoonus.nl/2009/03/24/linux-kernel-2629-installation-guide-for-ubuntu-and-debian-linux/
then in terminal go to folder with the packages and install them with
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.29-020629_2.6.29-020629_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.29-020629-generic_2.6.29-020629_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.29-020629-generic_2.6.29-020629_i386.deb
this worked for me, dpkg installed only the kernel. hope it helps ;)
