|0000176||Bananian Linux||[All Projects] Kernel||public||2015-11-14 19:00||2016-03-19 20:02|
|Target Version||16.04||Fixed in Version||16.04|
|Summary||0000176: Removing 4.2 kernel packages result in unbootable system|
|Description||Just to be curious I installed the new kernel packages |
apt-get install linux-image-4.2.0-bananian linux-firmware-image-4.2.0-bananian
Everything booted fine but when I found out I had no video I wanted to go back to kernel 3.4.
I uninstalled what I previously installed.
apt-get remove linux-image-4.2.0-bananian linux-firmware-image-4.2.0-bananian
But the system didn't boot.
I mounted the SD card and removed uImage-nex and I'm back at 3.4
Maybe is possible to remove that file when uninstalling.

|Same problem with linux-image-4.3.3-bananian. I wanted to return to kernel linux-image-4.2.0-bananian. A note in the FAQ would be useful :)|
Yes, the problem is known with all 4.x kernel versions and will be fixed with the next release.
For the meantime use "bananian-config" to go back to kernel 3.4.x.
To switch between 4.x kernels use "aptitude reinstall linux-image-4.x-bananian"
Is there any reason to go back to 4.2 after using 4.3.3?
After I removed the kernel 4.3.3 with aptitude, my Banana Pi still booted the kernel 4.3.3 but network and a USB keyboard were not working. (I think aptitude removed the modules)
First I thought my Banana Pi is not booting anymore because I couldn't login with ssh. But I was wrong. The Banana Pi is still booting but the system is not working fully because simply the kernel file isn't enough for a running system.
So, I mounted the SD-Card with my Linux computer and removed the file uImage-next. After that my Banana Pi booted the old kernel 3.4.* and I could reinstall the kernel 4.2.0:
aptitude reinstall linux-image-4.2.0-bananian
I switched back to 4.2 because I wanted to compare the crypto performance between kernel 4.2.0 and kernel 4.3.3.
