I have upgraded recently SolydX 32bits in old PC (1 procesor) to HE / Jessie, almost without issue. It had 2014/dec Solydx.
I would say it is 100% upgraded and updated, 2015/march/30 hehe . Basic steps/command below, if useful (*)
It seems all is working correctly... except the Kernel 184.108.40.206-586 (old PC, no PAE) and I am forced to use old kernel 3.14-2-486 . I dont know how important it is, so any comment welcome about 3.14 vs 3.16. I would like to solve the issue, if possible.
Symptoms: When booting default (linux-image 3.16) it seems all ok, but at some point Screen corrupts / start to blink.
In the 3.16 recovery, the screen corrupts appears too, so it is of no help. I have found booting 3.14 works all OK.
VGA card is AMD/ATI (9800) but I would say it is unlikely the cause, as kernel 3.14 ... 3.13 worked without issue.
Thank you in advance for any hint / ref or troubleshooting guide. e.g. Where can I see useful logs (syslog, etc).
(*) Basic steps/commands used to upgrade and workaround minor errors:
Code: Select all
a) Edit /etc/apt/sources.list for new repositories (solydx -> jessie) b) Update updatemanager (v2.4.5 -> v2.6.2) c) apt-get update d) apt-get -s dist-upgrade THEN apt-get dist-upgrade e) dpkg-divert --list |grep artwork THEN dpkg-divert --remove ... f) apt-get -f -s install THEN apt-get -f install g) some reboots, grup-pc install and finally update with updatemanager v2.6.2 h) Updated OK.
