Yes, I had rebooted, but I did goof up in that I had not manually edited my grub.cfg to reflect the kernel update. I don't have grub installed on the same drive where I have SolydX installed. Instead, I boot via uefi from my main drive and have grub as one of the boot options. Convoluted, I know, but this lets me boot Arch Linux directly via uefi without using grub.Leaphorn wrote:dhave wrote:Even though the updater shows that the system is updated (SolydX) with 2013.09.06 update pack applied, "uname -a" shows the kernel running is actually 3.9.8-1, not 3.10-2. I assume this is related to the nvidia module problem cited above, but I'm a noob when it comes to Debian and its derivatives.
Did you reboot your system? The kernel cannot be replaced in-situ. When restarting your system, you will get a selection of (at least) 2 kernels to boot 3.9 and 3.10 with 3.10 being the new default.
Anyway, after manually updating grub.cfg on my boot drive, I'm at least getting the updated kernel running.
But I still have the nvidia problem, which means that, while the SolydX kernel is now updated, the compatible nvidia module isn't installing, so the system doesn't start X. When I try to install nvidia-kernel-dkms from the command line (no X running, in other words), I get the same error message I cited above:
Code: Select all
dpkg: error processing nvidia-kernel-dkms (--configure): Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should reinstall it before attempting configuration.
