General Support / Kernel 5.14.01 and nVidia woes
« on: September 23, 2021, 07:38:26 PM »
This is already a solved issue but I am going to post it for anyone in the future for reference

Also ... It has been a while since I have done a How To or even been around.. I am still alive, still hoping for a different installer for VSIDO but also life happens and I love to golf... Cheers

I got back from a 2 week holiday with 2 of my sons, my daughter and my granddaughters up north to a massive update (obviously) and it included a new kernel jumping me from 5.10 to 5.14

I run nVidia latest drivers and didn't notice anything on the dkms build but honestly I was not really paying close attention... Upon reboot top that driver I was greeted with a failed to load start kernel module error and suspected it was a nVidia issue straight away.. This is how I solved it based on this nugget I found searching for a quick way to fix it

I started that kernel in repair mode which brings you to a spot to enter your root pw
I then used the following commands to start the network

(This was done a day later)

Code: [Select]
#ip link (it tells you what the card name is, in my case it was enp6s0)
# ip link set enp6s0 up

I then did the following:

Code: [Select]
# apt-get update
# apt-get dist-upgrade

Right away I noticed that the nVidia drivers had been updated and that a fix was already in place

All I had to do was apply the following to commit the kernel and new packages together

Code: [Select]
dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-kernel-dkms
I then just typed exit for a reboot (or ctrl alt del)

And booted to 5.140-1 perfectly

For those who live by the POIDH (Picture Or It Didn't Happen) creed

Runs as smooth as anything ever has IMO ... everything I want to work does

Golf game has never been better... I am striping the ball and making putts, beating anyone who is up to the challenge

I also walked 27 holes yesterday and got better as the day went on.. That may not sound like much but at 61, it is a task and I am feeling great walking 12 miles while doing something I love

What's up in your world RatMan?

That's great Gordon!

It's a python script that has not been maintained for years and a recent python update has killed it and it won't be fixed

Manually editing /home/user/.fluxbox/menu is the only way now to get it done

^ That looks like the view I had driving north to Wyoming or south down to Colorado Springs on I-25 when I lived in Denver

Stunning vistas

Hi PackRat , VastOne
Thank you both for all your help in solving my problem with the internet. It is very much appreciated.
I still have another problem but I will try again to sort it out myself. Wish me luck and again thanks for all your assistance  :) :)

I may have just got in RatMan's way on the way to getting this solved..

Glad you got it sorted... Cheers

All right Gordon, let's get this solved..

First of all I used this page to siolve this

I had a wireless card that I inserted and ran into some of the same issues you were... Assuming you have both Ethernet and the wireless card still installed this is what you should run this first in terminal

Code: [Select]
iw dev
and it should show something similar to this (this is what mine shows) but with your wlp2s0

Code: [Select]
Interface wlan0
ifindex 3
wdev 0x1
addr 00:12:17:66:73:91
ssid VastOne
type managed
channel 6 (2437 MHz), width: 20 MHz (no HT), center1: 2437 MHz
txpower 20.00 dBm

Next (and as long as that is there) let's run this

Code: [Select]
sudo medit /etc/network/interfaces
and add this and save it

Code: [Select]
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug enp2s15
#iface enp2s15 inet dhcp

# The wifi network interface
allow-hotplug wlp2s0
iface wlp2s0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid SKY4

A couple of things about this ... this setup will not let your primary network load the enp2s15 as a network but we can still see it in ceni and with network commands, this is fine.. If you ever need to go back to the ethernet, just pop back on here and I will show you how

If you have this setup just like this and you have the correct password added, you should be able to reboot into your wifi setup

I am setup and connected now on wifi doing what I just laid out for you...

let me know how it goes

Based on that information, we should be able to get you going but we will need to know the wifi access information...

When your grandkids come over, do they or did they ever have to get wifi password from you or is it setup that anyone in your house can get free wifi?

To get the name of your wifi access point should be easy with a cell phone.. Just go into the Network / wifi settings on the phone and select wifi and it should show you the wifi network that you all connect to.. that is the name we need

First run ceni and post post a screenshot or diagram of what is there, then unplug the ethernet cable post the screenshot of what you see?

Gordon, can you please put the wifi card in and do an lspci, capture the information and then get back connected and send the info?

Gordon, do you mean your modem is provided by SKY? 

My setup:

Computer --> My Router (handles all wifi) --> My Internet Service Provider (Spectrum) Modem --> Internet

In that scenario and just like you, the only thing I can do with the Spectrum / Sky modem is turn it off or on

Now one thing I cannot get clear.. Why is it that you cannot have both the wifi card and ethernet together on the same pc at the same time?  There shouldn't be a network conflict with either until both were configured but from a hardware setup they should be able to both be installed until that setup

Is it that each require the same slot in the computer? If that is not the case, there should be no reason why both cannot be installed at the same time

Now that you have confirmed that we you have wifi setup on other phones and tablets, we should be able to get you going using even ceni now .. We are going to need the settings for wifi connectivity from one of those devices , the name of the wifi and it's password to connect to it

Now we need that card installed so that ceni can see it and you connected to the internet and access to VSIDO from another device so we can walk you through it ..
