Re: [qubes-users] Qubes not loading latest installed kernel...? + How to remove old kernel versions?

2017-08-10 Thread Tao Effect
Something else I just noticed:

/boot contains initramfs-4.9.35-19.pvops.qubes.x86_64.img

BUT /boot/eft/EFI/qubes does not!

Both /boot and /boot/efi/EFI/qubes contain 
"initramfs-4.8.12-12.pvops.qubes.x86_64.img", and the two files differ when 
doing a diff on them.

The /boot/efi/EFI/qubes/xen.cfg file does not have an entry for the 4.9 kernel, 
but it does have 2 entries for 4.4.14 and 1 entry for 4.8.

There does not appear to be any difference between the boot arguments for the 3 
entries other than the version numbers of the kernels (that I can spot with my 
eyes alone).

I'm scared of modifying the xen.cfg file for 2 reasons:

1. The fact that the .img files for 4.8 kernels in /boot and 
/boot/efi/EFI/qubes are different means that I don't know what that difference 
is, and I can't just copy the 4.9 kernel from /boot into the other directory.

2. The fellow below tried modifying his xen.cfg file manually and broke his 
machine. I would like to avoid that.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Re: [qubes-users] Qubes not loading latest installed kernel...? + How to remove old kernel versions?

2017-08-10 Thread Tao Effect
Any update on this?

I just encountered a similar problem:

- Qubes 3.2 indicated there was an update for dom0
- I updated via the graphical utility, installed kernel 
4.9.35-19.pvops.qubes.x86_64
- Rebooted

Upon reboot, `uname -a` indicates I'm still running the old kernel.

So I tried manually running: sudo qubes-dom0-update 
--enablerepo=qubes-dom0-unstable kernel kernel-qubes-vm --best --allowerasing

It downloaded stuff (for some reason from "Fedora 23" repo even though I 
thought I'd updated to Fedora 25? Or is that separate - just for TemplateVM?) 
and then said, among other things:

"Package kernel-qubes-vm-1000:4.9.35-19.pvops.qubes.x86_64 is already 
installed, skipping"


Makes no sense! What do I do?

Like this fellow below, I do not appear to have any GRUB related things on my 
system being used.

Is there a way to force the machine to switch to using GRUB? Perhaps some BIOS 
option?

This is the machine I'm using:

Thanks for any help!

[qubes-users] Qubes not loading latest installed kernel...? + How to remove old kernel versions?

2017-04-18 Thread HydraGene
Hello all,So I updated Qubes kernel to version 4.4.55-11, but HCL report still 
says I am running version 4.4.14-11..I assume this isn't quiet right..My VM's 
are running the latest version according the the VM settings.Can someone tell 
me how to run my latest installed kernel?Also, can someone help me remove the 
old kernel versions? Because they are kind of obsolete and a waste of space. I 
have 3 kernels installed now, I want to remove at least the oldest one, which 
is 4.4.14-11Would be happy if someone could help me out.Thanks and best 
regards,HydraGene
