Eth0 won't start up and unable to change kernel
My CentOS droplet rebooted this morning and now networking won’t start up. I get the following error:
FATAL:Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64/modules.dep: No such file or directory
Sure enough, there is no /lib/modules/2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64 directory. It appears that kernel isn’t available on the server. The available kernels are:
I shut down the droplet (via “poweroff”) and went into DO’s control panel to change the kernel. I tried each of these kernels but the droplet won’t even boot up. The only way I can get it to boot up is by using my original kernel (2.6.32-358.6.2). The funny thing is – this kernel doesn’t appear in /boot/ and there isn’t a directory for it in /lib/modules/.
So I have a few questions:
- Why does it power up with 2.6.32-358.6.2 (which is not on the server)?
- Why won’t it power up with those other kernels (which are available on the server)?
- Is there some sort of log file so I can see what happens when it fails to boot up with one of the other kernels?
