i see i must upgrade kernel but how ? i have no shell

tks for your help it’s production server down.

tks advance

I do not understand much from your description like what exactly was the mesage and where you saw/found it. Please be more descriptive and precise.

In any case, openSUSE 11.1 is not supported anymore for a long time. The supported versions at the moment are 11.4 and 12.1

Supported versions are 11.4 and 12.1, an 11.1 is old an outdated.

Tks for your reply.

i see on internet that another man have this problem, and to solve this he do upgrade of kernel… but i don’t know how because i don’t have access to shell.

?? What do you mean with this??

i see, on other post, to correct this problem we must upgrade kernel.

udevd[645]: unable to receive ctrl connection: Function not implemented

In fact you did not even answer the questions asked in post #2 and #3 above.
We need more and precise explanation. We only understand that you got a message somewhere during or after boot. You did not even tell if the boot succeeded or not. Nor when you got that message. In the GRUB screen? Amongst the messages during boot and startup? Later found in the loging or with dmesg?
If you can not copy/past the message with the lines before and after it, try a photo and post it somewhere on the internet so we can see.

And I still need an explanation about the curious message “i don’t have access to shell.”.

Even if English is not your first language, try to tell as much as possible, because we can not see what you see.

So you are - quoting the problem from the thread you refer to

I was troubleshooting my Dockstar not able to boot from a microsd card

booting your production server from a micro sd card???
Or why else do you want to apply the solution given there?

> we have opensuse 11.1

as others have said openSUSE 11.1 is no longer supported–HOWEVER many
people incorrectly call “SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1” as “opensuse 11.1”

if you are actually using “SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1” then it IS
supported and you should ask your question in the correct forum, here:
http://forums.suse.com/

if you are not sure exactly what you are using, inspect the output of


cat /etc/issue


dd

i just try to apply the solution given… but it’s not work… the error message was the same…

so when server start, we choose safe and here we can see error message. if i boot “normal mode” server block when loading opensuse.

it’s opensuse 11.1, and I’m sure…

You refuse to show hard facts (output of the given command) or answer
the other questions, so my only advice can be:
Update to a supported openSUSE version (at the monet this is 11.4 and
12.1) instead of running your server with an end of life version which
receives no security updates.
At this point I am out of this thread, since you do not give any
detailed information to help us helping you.

i suggest you backup the data, format and install 11.4 (or 12.1, but at
this time i still think 11.4 is best, and i expect it will go evergreen
and be supported for some years…well, 11.2 is supported with patches
via evergreen already, but i don’t know how you can install it today,
see: http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Evergreen)

better than either 11.4 or 12.1 for a production machine which folks
depend on for years at a time would be to pay the pennies a day it cost
for SUSE Linux Enterprise…or move to a longer lived free distro like
CentOS…

When I started using SuSE, I looked at the cost of using SLES and the
killer was that I couldn’t just buy SLES for my machine, I would have to
buy it for every machine in my organization that is running SLES. Since
there are thousands of people in the organization, and I have no idea
how to find out if any of them are running SLES, I gave up on the idea.

Have things changed?

I assume you can post a photo of the screen when the message appears. Use a
camera and another computer. You can explain what you are doing, too.
