    computer turn on automatically


    Hello,

    Unfortunately, I am not linux expert.
    I have Debian Linux server. In the bios it is set that turn on every day at 6.
    I changed the kernel 4 days ago. Old kernel was 2.4.27. The new one is 2.6.18.
    Since, change of kernel the computer doesn't turn on although the bios is set.
    What is the problem?
    I use this motherbord: http://europe.giga-byte.com/FileList...8nf-9-rh_e.pdf

    Thanks for changing kernel
    but did u also consider changing the associated packages with the kernels?
    like kernel-headers????????
    did u just say "oops"?
    perhaps an update on your computer should resolve the issue.

    I dont like new kernel because my system is not good, because the computer can't turn on.
    Now, I use this kernel: "2.6.18-6-486 #1 Mon Oct 13 15:35:23 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux"
    What can I do with kernel headers?
    I installed oops.
    oops is said:

    RLIMIT_NOFILE changed to maximum: 8196

    sounds like mess with the system!

    just update your system and do not change kernels because kernels has many files that are dependant on it.... I cannot specify what all files, because it will be really long list. Just do an update on your machine..

    As I understand, you are using Debian, which is apt based.
    so,

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    or

    Code:
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    upgrade / update will install newer kernel and also the dependencies... still if you have issues and need correct guidance about kernels then first study all pages of:
    The Debian GNU/Linux FAQ - Debian and the kernel

    or keep posting here, simple?

    As I have so far studied debian, but it was long time ago,

    you probably installed the kernel-image-2.X.XX??

    Try not to install kernel images directly without thorough information about your hardware needs.

    Kernel is a type of program that really interacts with your hardware and helps to stabilize your operating system on which your DE is loaded and on DE your applications.

    Keep posting, and update what's happening.

    you need to do both lines, I always wrap them in one by doing
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    update updates the package list and upgrade upgrades the packages. I run a server on Ubuntu(which is Debian based) and when I need to update the kernel I use the code:
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get install linux-generic
    I know this works for Ubuntu, but I'm not sure about Debian. I think it should work though
