Hi PackRat

Sorry that it's been a few day but been a bit distracted of late.
well I tried both of those commands with no luck, I even tried doing a dist-upgrade and that didn't work either dropped out as soon as it hit dictionaires-common. I did all of that in root terminal window, I usually do all upgrades using smxi.

Is there anyway of getting a good copy of dictionaires-common that i can paste in or must it be installed by the program

I have even tried synaptic and that didn't work either

Try -

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
then try to upgrade again.

If you end up with the same error, try:

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
looks like dictionaries-common may be a broken package.

Hi Folks
Me back again,
just been trying to do an upgrade to 5.14 from 5.07, upgraded to 5.10 OK then said that in needed to do several upgrades before it could load kernel for 5.14 so I tried to carry on but all I kept getting was

Code: [Select]
error loading dictionaries-common error code 100
and
sub-process /usr/bin/dpks/ returning error code (1)

I have tried deleting the complete dictionaries-common followed by each individual file all with no success.
I have used smxi to install 5.14 but that failed to load the headers and I am still getting the dictionaries-common error messages.
I have no idea what to try next. Any help please
cheers

General Support / Kernel 5.14.01 and nVidia woes
« Last post by VastOne 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
