PostPosted: Sat Sep 07, 2013 2:03 am    Post subject: Kernel Upgrade 3.10.7 [SOLVED] Reply with quote

When doing an emerge I received the following message alerting me to the fact that there is a security bug in my kernel 3.8.13 and recommending upgrading to the latest stable kernel which is 3.10.7.

I have done a couple of upgrades in the past but am having difficulty this time around mostly because when I emerge Gentoo-Sources 3.10.7 doesn't come down. What am I doing wrong?

# Tom Wijsman <TomWij@gentoo.org> (28 Aug 2013)
# Gentoo sources 3.8.13 masked due to security bug #475618: CVE-2013-1059:
# Linux Kernel Ceph NULL Pointer Dereference Denial of Service Vulnerability
#
# This kernel also contains other security bugs due to its old age (May 11).
#
# We advice users to upgrade to the new stable kernel 3.10.7; alternatively, if
# necessary, users can also choose to accept keywords and accept a kernel from
# the earlier long term stable branches (3.0.X or 3.4.Y), this might be the case
# if you have older hardware or an unfortunate stability bug on 3.10.7.
#
# You can accept keywords by adding sys-kernel/gentoo-sources to the file
# /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords after which you can run
# `emerge sys-kernel/gentoo-sources:X.Y.Z` to select a specific LTS kernel.
# When you choose to turn back to stable later, don't forget to remove that.
#
# For proprietary NVIDIA drivers users, we temporarily keep 3.9.11-r1 around
# as some of them experience problems with the new stable kernel 3.10.7; we aim
# to mask it in one of the next weeks when the new branch 3.11 is out.

I use genkernel to configure, compile, and initramfs. Do I need to manually download the new kernel source. I haven't had to do that in the past. It just came down in gentoo-sources.

I use the following 2 wiki's to upgrade.

What happens when you explicitly 'emerge -1 =sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.7' ?

I wasn't sure if I should do that because thought it should down in the gentoo-sources because it is the new stable version?

Anyway when I do that nothing happens.

Code:
# emerge -1 =sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.7

Not related to your problem, but if I were you I would read Portage news with eselect as emerge says. Just to be sure you are not missing something important.

I want to thank everyone for their time and assistance. After banging my head against a wall for the past couple of weeks trying to figure this out, I discovered it was a problem of my own making. When I had a kernel problem in a past thread I was instructed to

Another option is to put
Code:
EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--exclude gentoo-sources"
into make.conf, it lets you manage kernel sources by hand.
and had forgotten about it. I un-commented it and was able to successfully upgrade kernel. My apologies for being a bone head.
