Thread: Kernel release incomplete

  1. #1

    Default Kernel release incomplete

    Can not update my tumbleweed because dependencies are not available:

    zypper dup --no-allow-vendor-change gives the following error:

    Code:
    Problem: nothing provides kernel-pae-devel = 4.13.6-1 needed by kernel-syms-4.13.6-1.2.i586
    Package kernel-pae-devel for matching kernel 4.13.6-1-pae is nowhere to be found.

    When will the release be complete?

    Default Re: Kernel release incomplete

    Hi
    FYI zypper dup command now is set to default to no allow vendor change, so that part is not needed.

    For i586 it's default, for i686 there is a pae kernel, switch the default, or pae for i686?

    Hi, thanks for your post.

    The kernel is not the issue, but the kernel-devel package is...i am running a i686 pae kernel 4.13.5 and this is going to be upgraded to a i686 4.13.6 kernel.

    However, with the i686 pae kernel there came the package kernel-syms-4.13.5-1.4.i586 which is to be upgraded to kernel-syms.4.13.6-1.2.i586.

    This kernel-syms-package is missing the corresponding kernel-pae-devel-4.13.6-1.2.i686 package.

    I have the same problem. zypper dup had the following results:

    I always used the pae kernel without any problems except once, when the default kernel was installed because the pae kernel was supplied later and my computer didn't start. There is an old thread to this still somewhere in this forum. Here I chose 1 but although it is offered in the square brackets I am told it is an invalid answer. What now?

    Hi
    Switch to i686 kernel-pae

    Thanks, malcolmlewis, can you please give some more info? I tried
    Code:
    linux-top:~ # zypper se i686 kernel-pae
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    S  | Name             | Summary                                                 | Type    
    ---+------------------+---------------------------------------------------------+--------
    i+ | kernel-pae       | Kernel with PAE Support                                 | package
       | kernel-pae-base  | Kernel with PAE Support - base modules                  | package
    i+ | kernel-pae-devel | Development files necessary for building kernel modules | package
    linux-top:~ #
    
    There is not much detail and zypper -v se ... didn't result in anything different. I presume I should install the i686 kernel before zypper dup? I can try YAST for more info on which kernel is that.

    Hi
    Yes you would need to check which one you have installed... maybe it's already at i686 then you would need to remove the old i586 and install the i686 versions.

    Code:
    zypper if kernel-pae
    
    Information for package kernel-pae:
    -----------------------------------
    Repository     : Main Repository (OSS)      
    Name           : kernel-pae                 
    Version        : 4.13.5-1.4                 
    Arch           : i686

    Vendor         : openSUSE
    
    You see it is the kernel-pae i686 but I am no further. In YAST too it only tells me that I have the kernel-pae i686 installed. So how do I remove al those i586 kernel files?

    It looks as if I am running the kernel-pae i686 with the kernel-syms i586 but nowhere can i find the package kernel-syms i686.

    Hi
    OK, syms is still at i586 (my bad);
    http://download.opensuse.org/tumblew...rpm.mirrorlist

    It is there but only on a couple of mirrors, my guess is things are still syncing.
