Today, I decided to reboot one of my CentOS machines after it had been running for 219 days.

In this time, I had done yum updates several times. When I tried rebooting the machine, none of the kernels would work except for the oldest one.

Here are the installed kernels:


Here is a uname -a:
Linux onavenuea 2.6.32-504.23.4.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 9 20:57:37 UTC
2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The CPU is a Intel Core 2 @2400 GHz; there is 6GB of RAM.

Much thanks for any advice in this regard.

  • Define “would not work”. Post a photo of the error message somewhere if you can’t describe it better than that. You might have to turn off rhgb mode to get a useful error message.

    Post the contents of /etc/grub.conf.

  • I don’t know how you get “probably” out of these two screenshots. Both machines seem to be crashing in about the same place in the boot, and both seem to have Intel graphics, but the resulting crashes are quite different.

    The test is simple, though: Max, try removing “nomodeset” from one of the failing kernel option lines and see what happens.
