[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2017-05-20 Thread Jarno Suni
** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: initramfs-tools
  
- When generating a new initramfs there is no check for available free
- space, subsequently its possible for update-initramfs to fail due to a
- lack of free space.  This is resulting in package installation failures
- for initramfs-tools.  For example:
+ When installing a kernel, /boot may become full during execution of
+ post-installation script typically when update-initramfs is creating or
+ updating an initrd.img file. This is resulting in kernel installation
+ error.  For example:
  
  Setting up initramfs-tools (0.98.8ubuntu3) ...
  update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
  Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
  update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic
  
  gzip: stdout: No space left on device
  E: mkinitramfs failure cpio 141 gzip 1
  update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic
  dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--configure):
   subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
  
- WORKAROUND:
+ Ideal behavior:
  
- Remove unused kernels using computer janitor (not in repositories for
- 14.04 or later) or manually free space on your partition containing the
- /boot file system.
+ Give a more helpful error message when this unfortunate situation occurs
+ so that user can fix the broken system and keep it going.
  
- See instructions here
+ Workaround:
+ 
+ As the bug reporting system forwards user to this bug report, such 
instructions can be given here:
  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RemoveOldKernels

** Summary changed:

- update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough  
free space
+ update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error message when there isn't 
enough  free space

2017-05-09 Thread Jarno Suni
Bill Meier, I think GUI application is not necessary. Text-based
application may have checklist, too, so it is pretty easy to make a
selection. Initramfs-tools may not run the application, but it could
give hint to run one in its error message. The script I was talking
about in #140 is such a script: 'sudo linux-purge --fix' would do that
(interactively with you). The advantage of text-based application is
that it can be used via ssh remotely. Your server might not even have
GUI. In case of this bug, fixing of broken packages is always needed, so
removing some kernels is not enough.

2017-05-05 Thread Jarno Suni
Michael Baker, the bug report Bug #1357093 that you referred to has been
re-reported as Bug #1675079 and Bug #1624644

If you disable automatic installation of updates, and install them by
Software Updater only, it will prevent you from installing kernel
updates, retaining the system in intact state, if there is too little
space left, and let you remove extra kernels by "sudo apt autoremove
--purge" (in 16.04-), right?

Whatever front-end is used to install kernels, be it apt, unattended-
upgrades whatnot, it should check if there is enough space for the
kernel in /boot, to prevent system from becoming broken by the
installation. It might be difficult in general, as initrd.img files size
may vary depending on dkms, linux-image-extra whatnot and there may be
backup initrd.img files generated, too.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2017-05-05 Thread Michael Baker
On booting I am told that a system program has encountered an error and asked 
if I want to send a report. On saying yes I'm told that the bug has already 
been reported and that it is "update-initramfs should produce a more helpful 
error when there isn't enough free space".
This is so far from what is happening that it is infuriating.
The basis of the problem is that /boot is not being cleaned up automatically.
This was a bug which was supposedly fixed in 16.04 UTS, but apparently not.
As a retired software engineer I know that I can clean up /boot manually, and 
have done so many times.
However I shouldn't have to.
Please stop classifying the /boot partition being full as "update-initramfs 
should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space".
This bug (/boot not being cleaned up automatically) should be given the highest 
possible importance.
It must be a complete turn of to any ubuntu user who does not have computer 
science skills (and to many who do).

  When generating a new initramfs there is no check for available free
  space, subsequently its possible for update-initramfs to fail due to a
  lack of free space.  This is resulting in package installation
  failures for initramfs-tools.  For example:

  Setting up initramfs-tools (0.98.8ubuntu3) ...
  update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
  Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
  update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic

  WORKAROUND:

  Remove unused kernels using computer janitor (not in repositories for
  14.04 or later) or manually free space on your partition containing
  the /boot file system.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2017-04-23 Thread Jarno Suni
I think check for enough space could be done in dpkg. It might be just
hard to estimate what is enough space, since the required space for
initrd.img files depends on whether linux-image-extra packages are used,
whether dkms is used and whether backup initrd.img files are generated.
Maybe some environment variable could be used for the limit.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2017-03-22 Thread Jarno Suni
sfrahm, were you installing updates by Software Updater, when this
happened? If so, you could report a bug by `ubuntu-bug update-manager`
in terminal. Tell it is likely a regression; in 14.04 it does not let
you start update, if there is not enough room for kernels (at least
always), but displays an error dialog instead. Please link the bug
report here, if you make it.

If you were not using Software Updater at the time it happened, but the
error occurred during automatic update, or during use of apt or apt-get,
you can not blame update-manager.

IIRC the default size of /boot partition has been increased somewhat
during past years. How big is your /boot (not /root) partition in 16.04
(df -H /boot --output=size)? If you want an option to choose even larger
/boot partition during installation, please report a bug against the
installer https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubiquity

Unfortunately removing old kernels does still not work well by default
in 16.04. You can read about some options in comment #140.

2017-03-21 Thread s frahm
Yes sir (jarnos), thank you. This same recurring Bug #1460396 by many
names. Is there a patch like this that also works on 16.04 Lubuntu LTS
?? Every time I have researched it over the years, there are variations
on this theme. This should be a core functionality of each LTS package
upon launch at minimum. What I am trying to get at, are the
possibilities of even more helpful suggestions and options upon install,
such as how large would you like /root to be? (say 1-5 GB) and how many
old kernel versions would you like to keep (2-3 minimum as a safe
default) Yes, pruning old kernels automagically could be dangerous, but
more so is crashing 1/2 completed upgrades IMHO. Thanks to all!

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2017-03-19 Thread s frahm
Ubuntu 16.04 (ubuntu 4.4.0-64) crashed yet again during upgrade to
4.4.0-66 from this same recurring 5+ year old bug - Pray tell, why can't
Ubuntu just tell me there is not enough room to upgrade the kernel (it
used to) and then perhaps even offer to fix it automagically with some
kind of an automated or scripted version of - $ sudo purge-old-kernels
instead of just crashing my whole enchilada? I simply just don't
understand the Ubuntu cultural or technical limitations that have kept
this from happening. First I have to install Janitor with Ubuntu Tweaks
on 12.04 - 14.04 LTS and delete all but the two latest older versions
and now with 16.04 I must install Byobu Terminal (which thing I like
very much anyway on most linux flavors lately) and manually type - $
sudo purge-old-kernels   5x - each time I attempt an upgrade of a base
install and 4 ea. KVM virtual machines. Oops, I forgot the one on the
hypervisor... CRASH! Arrrggg! Grub / advanced / recover to an older
kernel - $ sudo apt-get install -f   Thanks to the entire community for
such an otherwise wonderful thing that Ubuntu, Lubuntu, etc. is!
(...Hmm, ask the Webmin folks to add a script that does this perhaps?)
Thanks!

there are documented workarounds and scripts for purging old kernels
available. Is there a chance this bug will ever get fixed?

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-12-24 Thread Jarno Suni
"a more helpful error" that the title of this bug report calls for would
not free you from the need to remove kernels manually.

I made a script called linux-purge to make it easy to remove extra
kernels even in tricky conditions:
https://www.bountysource.com/issues/38300038-feature-request-the-
command-should-work-like-this (It is designed to handle dependency
problems and even problem running out of inodes - that may occur when
installing a kernel - when using --fix option.)

As for preventing system from getting full of kernels automatically, 
unattended-upgrades provides an adequate solution for most cases. You can 
configure it in Ubuntu 16.04 like this:
Add line 

Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-Unused-Dependencies "true";

in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades

(since unattended-upgrades is enabled by default in 16.04; the
configuration acts as if running "apt-get autoremove" periodically.)

The default setting in 16.04 is

Unattended-Upgrade::Remove-New-Unused-Dependencies "true";

but that does not work in some cases (Bug #1624644); the former setting
overrides it.

Alternatively, putting "linux-purge --yes --keep 1" as a cron job or alike 
could do automatic kernel purging, (if no other process has locked dpkg at the 
time of calling it).
It has some differences to the unattended-upgrades way:
- It works in 12.04 and 14.04, too. (unattended-upgrades cannot remove manually 
installed kernels that will be around, if user installs kernel using e.g. 
update-manager; Bug #1439769.)
- The number of kernels to keep is configurable. It keeps the given number of 
nearest older kernels of each installed kernel update series, e.g. 
linux-generic and linux-generic-lts-xenial, not necessarily the installed 
kernels with greatest versions. (You could use --auto-only to keep
manually installed kernels, too, but you probably would not want to use it in 
12.04 and 14.04.)
- Current kernel will never be removed. (Bug #1615381)
- It removes configuration files, too. (i.e. it purges)
- It only removes versioned kernel packages whose name start by linux-.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-12-23 Thread Alex
Happened to me yet again, on a new system, running 16.10. Why is this
still a thing? It affects every single person who uses the OS since if
you don't consciously take steps to prevent it it's guaranteed to
happen. And it means Ubuntu is fundamentally unsuited for general use
because every layperson who uses it is going to eventually get to a
point where they cannot install new packages. It's downright
embarrassing. I don't understand, either, how this is only medium
importance.

I mean, lord, compare it to this high-importance bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/initramfs-tools/+bug/1554795

Not to say that subjecting users to an arbitrary timeout (with typos!)
is a good thing, but this bug affects way more users than that bug does
and it also has the potential to wreck systems for novice users. And
undoubtedly has, over the past five-plus years it's been in existence.

2016-12-22 Thread Joachim Fagerholm
This bug is a disgrace. It has been around for years and sabotages many
non-tech users life. If I was able to fix it I would try. Unfortunately
I am not that skilled, can only fix the symptoms not contribute to
fixing the problem itself. But I would think that someone on a higher
skill level could do a service to the community here, fairly easily?
apt-get autoremove and autoclean takes care of it on newer versions,
didn't on 10.04. But they are apparently never run automatically? And
/boot could really be more in tune with the size of the disk it is
created on by the installation. I have had this trouble on Ubuntu 10.04,
12.04 and now 14.04.

2016-12-02 Thread Jarno Suni
"No space left on device" error might occur not only when disk space in
/boot is low, but also when there is lack of free inodes in system.
linux-headers* packages have a lot of files, so this may happen during
installing a new kernel. The script mentioned in comment #130 can
operate in most cases even in case of lack of free inodes.

2016-12-02 Thread Jarno Suni
** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: initramfs-tools
  
  When generating a new initramfs there is no check for available free
  space, subsequently its possible for update-initramfs to fail due to a
  lack of free space.  This is resulting in package installation failures
  for initramfs-tools.  For example:
  
  Setting up initramfs-tools (0.98.8ubuntu3) ...
  update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
  Processing triggers for initramfs-tools ...
  update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic

  E: mkinitramfs failure cpio 141 gzip 1
  update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-2.6.38-8-generic

2016-12-01 Thread Anders Hall
This hits me constantly. Why is this bug present years on end and three
major Ubuntu versions? The workaround is easy enough, still for many
users it is rocket science and will break the update procedure (I two
other persons that cant fix it themselves). I.e, thus is a critical
problem. Make a test in the installation procedure and remove the oldest
unused kernel, if disk space is low, before installing the new version.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-11-29 Thread Teemu Leisti
I was again purging old kernels via the Synaptic package manager
manually when I ran into this bug. As others have remarked above, the
root cause of having to purge kernels manually when /boot runs out of
space is pretty bad; an operating system that purports to be, and mostly
is, easy-to-use, should be able to handle that situation far better, by
purging old kernels automatically, or at most after one confirmation
dialog.

2016-10-17 Thread Vonschutter
This is an extremely dangerous bug since it prevents further updates.
The package manager does not complete actions until this is resolved.
Few non-sys admins will know how to get around this.

One possible root cause is creating too small of a boot partition at
install.

2016-10-13 Thread Harald H.
Occured here today. Running this simple command to remove old kernels
and unused packages worked around the issue:

sudo apt-get autoremove --purge


Alternatively, and to be able to remove even manually installed kernels, you 
could use:
sudo purge-old-kernels

To be able to use purge-old-kernels you may need to first install the the byobu 
package by running:
sudo apt-get install byobu

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-09-20 Thread Thomas A. F. Thorne
I hit this today.  `df -h` confirmed my /boot was quite full (15MB
left).  Running `sudo purge-old-kernels` (from the bikeshed package)
cleared out some things and brought the free space on /boot up to 93MB.

Re: [Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-07-31 Thread Gordon
Hi Jarno,

Thanks for all your advice and additional thanks to *Pxtl* for the idea of
a script, here's my own variation...

```
sudo apt-get purge `dpkg -l "linux-image-3.13.0-8*" | grep -E
"linux-image-3.13.0-8*" | awk {'print $2'} | tr '\n' ' '`
```

*Explaination*:  the *dpkg* lists all the kernel images, followed by *grep*
to limit the list to just version .8* kernels and lastly *awk* and *tr*
convert the vertical list into a one-liner that is encapsulated by back
ticks that wraps into an *apt-get purge* command with a chance to review
everything before committing to Yes, use caution...

This freed up my */boot* volume, here's before and after running it over
version .7* and .8* kernels using *df -h*

/dev/sda1   236M  187M   37M  84% /boot  --
BEFORE

/dev/sda1   236M   70M  154M  31% /boot  --
AFTER

Finally my installed kernels as of now...

linux-image-3.13.0-24-lowlatency
linux-image-3.13.0-91-generic
linux-image-3.13.0-91-lowlatency
linux-image-3.13.0-92-generic
linux-image-3.13.0-92-lowlatency
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-77-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-79-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-83-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-86-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-87-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-88-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-91-generic
linux-image-extra-3.13.0-92-generic
linux-image-generic
linux-image-generic-lts-trusty
linux-image-lowlatency

It appears as if *apt-get purge* properly sorted out which *lowlatency* and
which *generic* kernels to keep.
I'd suggest this a potential workaround for now, please test and verify.
Many thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
Gordon

Pxtl, the script is explained in https://markmcb.com/2013/02/04/cleanup-
unused-linux-kernels-in-ubuntu/ I do not recommend to use it, though.
Rather use the instructions in the given workaround. (Even the script
called purge-old-kernels isn't perfect and not usable in some more
complex cases, but at least you can report bugs about it.)

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-07-22 Thread Pxtl
I have a text file in my home directory with the following snippet I
found on an Ubuntu forum that i'm copying and pasting every time my boot
dir runs out of memory:

dpkg -l 'linux-*' | sed '/^ii/!d;/'"$(uname -r | sed
"s/\(.*\)-\([^0-9]\+\)/\1/")"'/d;s/^[^ ]* [^ ]* \([^
]*\).*/\1/;/[0-9]/!d' | xargs sudo apt-get -y purge

I have no idea what the above command does - I see some horrifying
regexes and a double-nested sed call and some weird parameters and apt-
get  That's what this bug has reduced me to - copy-paste random
commands into terminal.  It seems to happen with the normal recommended
boot partition - how are other users not hitting this all the time?
Shouldn't every single user with recommended partitioning eventually run
out of space and hit this total failure?  Because I'm wondering about
Grandma-machines where somebody just gets used to ignoring the fact that
they can't update.

Re: [Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-07-22 Thread Alan Burgess
Hi Gordon,

I've had this same issue for many months and have come to the conclusion 
that there is no expertise within Ubuntu or if there is then no one who 
is prepared to fix it and get it out to the community.

I have reluctantly had to revert 42 machines back to Windows. Windows 10 
now which is miles better than XP and until Ubuntu has a professional 
organisation behind it.

I'm leaving Ubuntu 14.04 on this one unit just to see it this issue ever 
gets fixed.

Its been suggested we give Fedora a go and ditch any ideas of ever using 
Ubuntu.

If you have any experience (good or bad) of Fedora then please share.

Many thanks

Alan

You might want to use its --keep option to tell it how many kernels to

2016-07-21 Thread Jarno Suni
Gordon, oh, according to the screenshot your system seems to have both
generic and lowlatency kernels installed. Is that on purpose? Does
"linux-version list" output all the releases? If not, see
http://askubuntu.com/q/779031/21005 . Be careful with purge-old-kernels.
You might want to use its --keep option to tell it how many kernels to
keep.

Gordon, apt-get autoremove will not help for Ubunbu Studio 14.04 unless you 
have installed security updates automatically. Use e.g. command
sudo purge-old-kernels
from bikeshed package to remove extra kernels in Trusty. If that does not work, 
see 
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Documentation/RemoveOldKernels#Problems

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-07-21 Thread Gordon
I'm still having this issue on Ubuntu Studio lowlatency kernel updates
using the following cmds:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then it fails, seems to recover, not entirely convinced :(

Is there a way to safely increase the boot partion ?

Using an SSD drive...

df -h
Filesystem  Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev2.9G   12K  2.9G   1% /dev
tmpfs   577M  1.4M  576M   1% /run

Please help... this always occurs and has been for what seems months.

2016-05-26 Thread Luke Faraone
Fair enough. I've unmarked it as a duplicate.

Technically, yes, this bug is about the error message, although the
"WORKAROUND" in the description is a bit of a misnomer, since it focuses
on resolving the issue that resulted in the error.

Updating the copy should be easy enough; I can tackle that for Yakkety.

  14.04 or later) or manually free space on your partition containing
  the /boot file system.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-05-26 Thread Jarno Suni
Sebastian Nohn, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-
manager/+bug/1054927/comments/7 claims unattended-upgrades has been
fixed in Xenial (that contains version 0.90). I understand it so that
extra kernels should be automatically removed in Xenial. If that is not
the case and /boot gets filled up, please update the bug status of bug
1054927.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-05-26 Thread Sebastian Nohn
Interpolating the number of bugs to the number of users affected,
looking into Google searches for users looking for help solving the
problems caused by this, my guess is these are amongst the most annoying
open bugs in Ubuntu out there.

Is there any chance that any of these bugs will be fixed in the current
LTS releases?

2016-05-26 Thread Rod Smith
I agree with Jarno; these three bugs are related, but this one (at
least) is not an exact duplicate of the other two. This one is
explicitly and exclusively about mkinitramfs, whereas the other two are
more general and can be triggered in other ways. (Those two might be
duplicates of each other, but not of this one.) That said, a solution to
the other two bugs is likely to make this one less likely to be a
problem.

Luke Faraone, I think bug 1357093 and bug 1054927 are not duplicates of
this. They are about getting automatic removal of excessive kernels done
by default. This bug is about handling the case where /boot is about to
fill up better. The bugs affect to different packages.

Re: [Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-05-14 Thread David Gerstmann
Agreed. This is such a large omission that I am tempted to believe it is
on purpose. There are workarounds to temporarily fix the problem, but
they are so complicated that a novice, such as myself, must employ great
effort to find the temporary fixes. This seems to be a very bad way to
promote an operating system. I'm curious if this problem will be fixed
in the next long term supported version.

[Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error
  when there isn't enough free space 
REALLY disappointed in Canonical and Ubuntu. Why isn't a bug like this
the very top priority of Canonical's development team and the open
source community? The bug potentially affects all users and prevents
those users from upgrading the kernel, even to plug security holes.
Aren't security and kernel problems that affect all users of concern to
anyone with the power and skills to fix them?

I'm now stuck with having to manually remove kernel files (seriously?)
on an expensive laptop with a factory installed Ubuntu 14.04 OS. Even
`autoremove` fails for me because gzip has no room to extract the files
that it wants to delete? And of course the bug is silently ignored by
appreport and consequently Ubuntu and Canonical. Shame on you...

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-05-14 Thread Hobson Lane
REALLY disappointed in Canonical and Ubuntu. Why isn't a bug like this
the very top priority of Canonical's development team and the open
source community? The bug potentially affects all users and prevents
those users from upgrading the kernel, even to plug security holes.
Aren't security and kernel problems that affect all users of concern to
anyone with the power and skills to fix them?

I'm now stuck with having to manually remove kernel files (seriously?)
on an expensive laptop with a factory installed Ubuntu 14.04 OS. Even
`autoremove` fails for me because gzip has no room to extract the files
that it wants to delete? And of course the bug is silently ignored by
appreport and consequently Ubuntu and Canonical. Shame on you...

2016-04-27 Thread Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre
@Kishor, please do not assign yourself to bugs unless you plan on
working on the fix yourself.

I increased the minimum size of boot on new installs already (that was
bug 1465050), which should help alleviate the problem; there could still
be some work done to improve the error message there, but it's not
necessarily a simple thing to do.

For desktops, I think /boot should be 500MB; however for servers, 250MB
still makes sense.

2016-03-20 Thread Chris Cooper
I know others have said similar but I don't understand why the automatic 
settings only reserve 250Mb for boot drive.
Why not make it 5G then it won't run out of space?
or perhaps 5% of the drive space ?

 I will try to boot off a cd key and adjust mine to overcome this
problem.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-02-11 Thread Jake McGregor
The only thing I can add here (and hopefully I'm not repeating anyone
here) is /boot claims to be about 75% full, and I have also seen it 100%
on another system of mine. It appears the problem is during the
transition between kernel 4.3 and 4.4. I use an encrypted partition on
both systems, one of which is a Surface Pro 3 using secure boot (if that
matters to anyone). I have only had one case where the system was unable
to boot because of this. Lucky for me I have a cloud backup. The others
I caught it in time. I was able to keep the system stable by fixing what
appeared to be a dependency error. Then again not rebooting might have
also helped. My guess is the Ubuntu installer didn't leave much space on
/boot, though normally all that is stored there is a few kernels and
related files. Everything appears fine now.

2016-02-02 Thread Ronny Ager-Wick
@dmcnutt 
USB disks show up here just like other disks in "df", so that's normal.
/dev/dm-0 is most likely an encrypted partition. /boot cannot be in an 
encrypted partition because you need it for decryption. If the disk was just 
one big encrypted partition, you'd need to boot on a USB stick or something in 
order to decrypt it. If you install ubuntu on a disk using disk encryption (for 
example ext4), then you don't need to separate /boot on a separate partition.

Andy Balaam, thank you indeed.  I am a new Ubuntu user, switching from
Windows (work).  Can't believe this kludge has been going on as long as
the comments indicate.  Board comments led me to try your fix, and it

2016-01-21 Thread Markku Vire
I have installed several systems using the encryption option from the
graphical installer. I really need to use the full disk encryption and
the installer option seems to be the most straightforward way to achieve
this. As far as I remember the manual partitioning did not allow to
setup LVM, which in turn was the way to unlock both swap and rootfs by
entering a single password.

Having that small /boot seems ridiculous, given that the the device
itself is 2 TB. Increasing the boot partition size could work as band-
aid solution to make the manual cleanup happen not that often. Or the
update tool could automatically try to remove the few oldest kernels.

Re: [Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-01-07 Thread Doug McNutt
Very helpful Mr. Ager-Wick

Its strange that partitions show up as /boot under, somehow under /dev/sda1.
I guess that makes sence but I also have a disk reported as
/dev/sdb1   /media/kit/UNTITLED
which is actually a portable disk tied in by USB connections. (kit is 
another user)
/dev/null/ is about my level of usage for /dev at all. I shall work on that.
Is there, perhaps, something wrong with reporting usage that start with 
/dev?
/dev/dm-0, or perhaps dm-O, shows 143G size and 72G used  and I have no 
idea where or what it's used for. It sounds like I might have a problem 
there.
Currently:
/dev/sda1   236M  144M   80M  65% /boot
which will be OK for a while but I had no idea that it was a partition 
rather than a simple directory. There is a real directory /div/ which 
could also be handling it within the system. I assumed that while 
deleting older entries and it worked with simple rm commands.

@dmcnutt /boot is usually a separate partition, byt default around
250MB, which is way too small. Use command "df" to see how much space
you have left on each partition. if /boot is nearly full, it doesn't
help if / has loads of space.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2016-01-06 Thread Ronny Ager-Wick
Completely agree with @grey - it is unacceptable that such a simple
thing will consistently create problems for ALL ubuntu users, many of
which will not be comfortable with entering "sudo apt-get -y autoremove"
or whatever in terminal.

I do understand the issue though - each kernel is a separate package,
and as such, apt can't just uninstall it without asking.

So I suggest that as default, instead of linux-image-generic depending on the 
latest kernel package, create a new pakcage, perhaps called 
"linux-image-generic-current", which does not /depend/ on the latest kernel 
package, but /is/ the latest kernel package (or a copy at least). This way. 
when a new kernel is released, this package will get a new version and the 
kernel will be downloaded and *replace* the old one. There may be a catch here, 
but I am sure if there is someone knowledgeable will tell me :)
It's important that this is the default, as less knowledgeable users will then 
avoid the issue without having to do anything.

Yes, I know that this way, you can't boot on an older kernel. This is rarely an 
issue though, as most people don't do that. For the few cases it is needed, 
maybe one could add another package "linux-image-generic-previous" for the 
second to the last version and/or "linux-image-generic-original" for the first 
kernel to be released for the current version of Ubuntu?
Of course it's completely possible for a user to install one specific kernel 
separately, which they can use in case the latest one can't boot.

For people who genuinely needs the current way of always retaining the
previous kernels, linux-image-generic could continue to be maintained as
well as linux-image-generic-current, and either of the two can be
installed, but not both. I believe this is possible with apt?

I also suggest the default boot partition size to be 5% of total disk space, 
min 250MB (current default), max 2GB.
But no matter how big you make it, eventually it will run out of space anyway, 
so only increasing the size of the /boot partition is just delaying the issue.

Alternatively, can a cron or startup job be set up as default (on all
new installations of Ubuntu), that runs "apt-get -y autoremove", perhaps
only for linux-kernel packages (if possible) at boot or every month or
so?

2016-01-06 Thread Kenneth Bingham
I second ~grey's assertion. I installed Wily 15.10 only a few weeks ago
and accepted the default /boot partition size suggested for use with LVM
and today was unable to perform a routine package upgrade due to a lack
of free space on /boot. I was able to work around the problem by first
listing installed kernel versions:

$ dpkg -l linux-image-\*|grep ^ii
ii  linux-image-4.2.0-16-generic   4.2.0-16.19  amd64Linux kernel 
image for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-4.2.0-21-generic   4.2.0-21.25  amd64Linux kernel 
image for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-4.2.0-22-generic   4.2.0-22.27  amd64Linux kernel 
image for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-4.2.0-23-generic   4.2.0-23.28  amd64Linux kernel 
image for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-extra-4.2.0-16-generic 4.2.0-16.19  amd64Linux kernel 
extra modules for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-extra-4.2.0-21-generic 4.2.0-21.25  amd64Linux kernel 
extra modules for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-extra-4.2.0-22-generic 4.2.0-22.27  amd64Linux kernel 
extra modules for version 4.2.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP

then identifying the running kernel

$ uname -r
4.2.0-22-generic

then purging old kernel pax
$ sudo apt-get purge linux-image-4.2.0-{16,21} 

and finally completing package upgrades
$ sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude upgrade

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2015-12-28 Thread Greyed
4+ years and still not fixed.  And no, to the many people who have
listed how to "fix" it via apt commands, that is not a fix, that is a
kludge.  APT (in its myriad forms) is a package manager.  That means
these kernel packages should be managed.  So here are the facts.

1: Ubuntu now suggests for partitioning a tiny /boot partition.
2: Ubuntu now pushes out several minor kernel updates per month.
3: Those kernel updates do not clean up after themselves.

Add those three together and it means every Ubuntu user will, I stress
WILL, run into this problem in short order.

This is a core package, it is a managed package, this problem should be
MANAGED, not kludged.  But all I see in going back through the history
of this bug is two things which should not be happening.

1: The bug being assigned out to someone only to be assigned to nobody right 
after it.
2: People disparaging others for wanting the issue resolved.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2015-12-20 Thread Doug McNutt
I have found a problem several times running updates which are coming
more and more often. That's probably good for security but the automated
attempt to update adds a bunch of files to a root level directory, like
this:

lenovo[~]> cd /boot
lenovo[/boot]> ls -l
total 92010
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  1312266 Dec  2 15:52 abi-4.2.0-21-generic
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  1312266 Dec 17 20:23 abi-4.2.0-22-generic

-rw--- 1 root root  6799856 Dec 17 20:23 vmlinuz-4.2.0-22-generic

To fix I have to login as root and delete older files that, hopefully,
will never be needed for a backup.

There is plenty of extra room on the disk and it's hard to understand
why the files can't just continue to waste space but I can't find
evidence of some limit other than the disk itself. Is it possible that
root has some limit to its own use?

2015-12-19 Thread Hobson Lane
Like #86, but for me it took 3 weeks. Depends on number of kernel
patches released after initial install. The OS should `sudo apt-get
autoclean` instead of crash. Fine to "notify" user of the inadequate
default boot partition size, but definitely not OK to scare them with a
"Crash" notice every time that boot partition is found to be too small
for the pace of kernel patches and the default kernel retention policy.

Surely the installation process should automatically remove the oldest
kernel before installing the newest one if there isn't enough space to
install the newest one?

[Touch-packages] [Bug 798414] Re: update-initramfs should produce a more helpful error when there isn't enough free space

2015-12-09 Thread David Jones
I think this is a pretty serious issue because if you select Full Disk
Encryption when install Ubuntu a very small (~250e6 byte) partition is
created. Each kernel update creates another (~30e6 byte) initrd.img file
and you quickly run out of space (only enough space for about 4 kernel
upgrades). Typically during the update-initramfs of a "apt-get upgrade".

It is not acceptable for ordinary users to have to manage their kernels
and their free space in the /boot partition.
