Debian :: Jessie Hangs / Freezes After Fresh Install
Dec 8, 2015
I installed Jessie day before yesterday on a freshly formatted partition. After a random time, it hangs. If I am playing music at the time, the music continues for a few more seconds _after_ the mouse and keyboard become unresponsive, if that is useful.

Sine I did not understand how to pick the desktop during the installation, I installed Gnome. Afterwards, I installed KDE. Now I have a lot of Gnome stuff around I don't really need. But they are in principle compatible, right?
This morning, the hang was almost immediate after logging on. Only Iceweasl and Amarok and a Konsole were running. I attempted to start Icedove, when everything hung.
Here is the relevant part of the syslog.
Dec 8 07:41:38 jon-desktop rsyslogd:
[origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="8.4.2" x-pid="775" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"]
rsyslogd was HUPed
My clock said 07:41 at the time of the hang.
I have a fresh install of Jessie, and am having issues with debconf.

I have been trying to change to mdm from the default lightdm display manager. I have downloaded and installed mdm (apt-get install mdm) but when I run dpkg-reconfigure mdm nothing happens. As I understand it, I should get a menu that lets me choose which display manager to use.
I also installed lirc so I could get my IR remote working again, but when I run dpkg-reconfigure lirc nothing happens. I am supposed to get a menu with various options to choose from.
I have tried dpkg-reconfigure debconf and this gives me the menu with different options to choose, like it should when trying dpkg-reconfigure lirc or dpkg-reconfigure mdm. I tried using dpkg-reconfigure debconf to choose different settings, such as gnome, or editor, but they don't work either.
I recently have started playing with various distros (Mostly just Zorin and Debian) and have been trying to find a GUI I can actually comfortably use without wanting to punch my screen. This lead me to cinnamon which looks like something I could actually use.

I performed a fresh installation of Debian Jessie without the desktop environment and print server (System Utilities or whatever that option is called was left checked) and after the system installed and booted I proceeded to login as the root and install cinnamon. Unfortunately afterwards my system would be nothing but a black screen with a box saying that cinnamon had crashed and was running in fallback mode.
However if I let a fresh installation install the default GUI of xfce and then perform the cinnamon installation, cinnamon will install and run. My question is why doesn't a clean install with cinnamon work but installing cinnamon after another gui does? I don't get any apparent error messages beyond cinnamon crashing and I'm still fairly new to Linux.
I am having a problem with my new Toshiba Satellite Laptop... I had installed debian for some time but last week suddenly stopped working.

- the computer stopped working at all... nor bios access.
- I did a new bootable installation in USB drive and downloaded the latest debian iso from official website and created the bootable device via dd as usual.
- I installed the new debian but after I removed the usb drive in order to boot into my new system. I was taken to a screen saying "Start PXE over IPv6 -- Start PXE over IPv4 ..." I followed several links looking for a fix, and all of them lead me to disable network boot option in BIOS setup...
- I disabled but after that it appears a new message "No Bootable device -- Press restart system" and nothing happens from there.
- I have found info in Internet regarding this issue, but all I find is "windows related"
- Someone recommended me this: "The BIOS can no longer recognize the hard drive as a bootable device. This could be for a number of reasons. Your best bet, if it is still under warranty, is going to be to bring it back to where you purchased it"
- But instead, what I did was to create a new bootable device, this time containing XUBUNTU and installed it to the machine, I had the good news that the installation proceed without any problem, so I could figured out that my machine it is still alive...
- Back to my issue and hoping that something unexpected happened that fixed the machine, I got back and did a new Debian bootable device, also hoping that the latest was corrupted or something, but after reboot to my new system... the problem persisted again.
- I chose to have 1 partition in full disk.
Now I don't know what else to do... I don't like ubuntu, I have used debian for some years and I want to keep using it and I would not like to be forced to move to ubuntu or xubuntu for this.
I recently finished a mini-itx machine and everything was working great with a fresh Jessie install. I put in a PCIe wifi card and now the computer won't boot. The power LED is on, the PSU fan is spinning, but I get no display output at all and I don't know how far into the boot process the thing even got. I removed the card and the machine boots fine again.

I only have one PCIe slot so it is my only option, I don't have another PCIe card to try, nor do I have another machine to test the wifi card in. The card is brand new, for what it's worth.

System is hanging during boot after a successful fresh install via netinstall disk. Never makes it to any GUI or prompt. However, it does still respond to CTRL-ALT-DEL (not completely frozen).Default debian installation with one exception - KDE checkbox was checked for installation. Everything else was default, with "use full disk with GRUB" option chosen.The boot process appears to hang during the service starts. It appears that the start job for "Create Static De..." is not actually ever completing. I don't know how to troubleshoot that any further than I have.

This is running on hardware, it is not a virtual machine. 480GB SSD, i7, 16GB of RAM, AMD R9 390 (I dunno if this is the problem, but it seems a likely culprit).There are no other disks attached. I have verified successful memtest completions (0 failures) and hard disk is intact and working fine (I have swapped for another disk, and the same thing happens as well).
My skill level with Linux is relatively low. I have proficiency using it and programming for it, but not much in the way of troubleshooting/ installation/ drivers.
Here is an album of "screenshots" (phone photos) of the boot sequence in debug: URL....I tried booting straight to console by removing "quiet" from boot options and changing to "text", but it does not alter the outcome in any discernible way.
I initially installed Debian 8 onto my iMac G5 (with KDE), and it would boot to a black screen. I then tried again, and reformatted+reinstalled with only "Standard system utilities", "Print server", and "SSH server".The boot hangs before I get to a log-in prompt. Please see the attached log files I pulled off by booting from the rescue CD option. (I got an error when attaching the log files, so I used tinyupload to upload the files.URL....

After my most recent update, the boot sequence hangs at:"a start job is running for Create Volatile files and directories" with a timer and no limit .. I let it go for 12 minutes, but nothing.It seems as long as this sequence remains, the boot process does not finish and just hangs here.I haven't been able to find anything specific to this. I currently cannot boot into this machine, though do have access to files via dual boot.

When using it with dual monitor configuration, I experience the problem when I put system to sleep (by closing the lid), then remove the external monitor cable (from miniDP port) and then try to wake system from sleep. The login screen freezes and I am unable to move the mouse or type in credentials. In case I had music player running I can hear the music after system wake , but it shutters while playing.
This does not happen on some other distributions, but the problem is that I very much like my current setup and I would like to fix this problem and keep it.
I do not know if this problem is due to KDE or KDM or it's Debian base.
I had Debian 7.9 up and running like a charm until yesterday. Today I did the upgrade to 8.2, now boot hangs. I see 3 boot entries for the new kernel now -

I have installed Debian 8 Jessie on my mid 2009 (5.5?) macbook pro. My computer is dual booted with OS X. I installed / on a partition with 30GB space, /home with 40GB, and swap with 4GB. My computer states are: 4GB ram, Intel Core Two Duo CPU 8700 2.53 Ghz x2, Graphics Gallium 0.4 on NVAC. The system has been running great compared to any other distro I have tried, except for that it randomly freezes sometimes. I've been running it for 4 days now and it has locked up 4 times.

Twice waking from suspend, once when changing the desktop background photo, and once after a reboot. I've a little afraid of messing with NVIDIA drivers as I tried that with various other distros and every time I rebooted after using these drivers the system would never boot into GUI and crazy kernal panic would insue. This is the closest I have come to successfully running linux on my mac. If there are any logs or information I can provide to find a solution to the freezing that would be amazing, because I absolutely love this setup!
For months I've been experiencing periodic screen freezes in Debian Jessie. I've tried many ways to debug/fix it without any luck...

I'm running GNOME 3 in Debian Jessie...
Code: Select all$ gnome-shell --version
GNOME Shell 3.12.2
$ cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 8
On a ThinkPad X60 with a SSD.
Code: Select all$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
My screen freezes periodically.
By freeze, I mean that the mouse can still move, but everything else behind it is frozen entirelyI can switch to a terminal with CTRL+ALT+F1, it's ... I guess... X or gnome-shell or something that's frozen? Not the whole OS thoughThese freezes last anywhere between 5 or 10 seconds and 3-5 minutesI can't predict when they will occur, but often, after a suspend/resume, they will start occuring much more frequently. Also, they often happen after I enter my password and press ENTER on the lock screen after a resume from suspend. But not exclusively -- they can happen at any other time when I'm doing pretty much anything in GNOME...
Things I've Tried...
When frozen, I've tried to CTRL+ALT+F1, login, and run gnome-shell --replace... [*[When frozen, I can successfully CTRL+ALT+F1 and run `service gdm restart`... with the obvious downside of losing everything I have open. But the screen responds immediately and I can log back in to GNOMEI tried running `Xorg -configure` to generate an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to edit, but received an error about not being able to generate configuration for multiple screens or something (I can retry and provide the exact error if this is a useful direction to try) is it the gnome-shell freezing? Is it X? Is it a problem with the X driver I'm using?
I just upgraded my Debian Wheezy XFCE 32-Bite to Jessie.

Now some strange freezes occur. After 10sec - 3min after login the GUi freezes and the screen gets blurry and some "lines" appear.
I never suffered from this bug under Wheezy. What could be wrong? Some conflict with the X-server?
Tried to install Jessie RC1,but installer hangs on formatting the partition,at 33%.

Thunderbird hangs w/:
futex(0x7f91c3b02640, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 2, NULL) = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted)
The Thunderbird window never appears.
I have tried removing ~/.thunderbird/ and ~/.mozilla-thunderbird/, to no avail. I have tried creating a new dummy account and running Thunderbird -- that works okay. So this has to be something in my user home area, I just can't figure out what. While I can wipe my home area and start over, I have about 60 other users who are going to face this same issue when I upgrade their machines, so I am desperate to resolve the issue some other way.
I have done on previous releases, but this time it hangs on me. It's "only" a Virtualbox, so I can reproduce it.

The wheezy already runs systemd, and is fully updated to to latest packages. Does not run any graphical.
Edits the source.list and does
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get upgrade # Did on one upgrade
$ apt-get dist-upgrade
It starts to upgrade (complains about missing version in libpgp-error), libc is installed, but at some point the systemd is running at high CPU and a dpkg seems to be stalled.
Should I disable systemd on wheezy before? This might not have been tested so much.
I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I've tried Google searching and searching this forum, but haven't found something similar to my issue. Yesterday, I installed 10.04 off of the live CD onto my Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 laptop (P4 2.8, 1GB RAM).

The main problem is: -if the computer sits idle for more than about 5 minutes, the display will freeze. Image stays on screen, but the computer appears to be non responsive to all input.
-I thought it was a screen saver at first, but it happens even with the screen saver disabled. -I can still SSH into the machine from my desktop computer. I get a normal prompt, and it seems to be working fine from the shell. This is how I have been restarting or shutting down the machine after a freeze.
Secondary issues (that may help diagnose the problem):Even when this laptop appears to be functioning normally (pre-freeze), I cannot switch to any virtual terminals. Well, I can, but when I get there, something is not right. The text does not display properly. It sort of strobes on and off near the top right hand of the screen. -On shutdown, I get a weird colorful displays of what I can best describe as "static". The closing splash screen may just blink on for a second. Other than that the screen stays black until the machine shuts down.
-I've run versions of Ubuntu going back to Breezy on this machine, mostly without issue, and it has been a full time Ubuntu machine since the release of 8.04. These symptoms all appear to be related to video / display.
I installed openSUSE 11.4 today and I have a problem. After login, KDE Plasma hangs for about 30sec and I can't do anything. The keyboard and the mouse are working, but if I click, I don't get any response only after about 30sec.

This is a fresh install, 32bit, I'm using only the Oss, Non-Oss and update repositories and the system is up to date.
I have an nvidia 9500M GS graphics card, first I thought it is a driver bug, but I tried both the stable 260.19.44 and the latest 270.41.03 drivers, and was no difference.
I made an another user to try with a clean kde, but the same happened.
I have nothing in my Autostart directory, and I cleaned also the /etc/xdg/autostart dir, leaving there only the pulseaudio related files.
I'm on an HP Pavillion dv1000 laptop. I used a live CD to install Ubuntu 10.10 to an external USB hard drive. The install completed successfully, but after a reboot I am stuck on a black screen with a white cursor. Before that I see nothing but the initial HP startup screen. I am able to run the live CD without problems, and I have been running Ubuntu from a 4GB thumb drive (which I installed on using the same live CD that I used to install on my current external hard drive). I had no problems whatsoever running from the CD or thumb drive, so I can't figure out why the external hard drive would be so different.

Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit, GNOME desktop. Previous install (same OS) gave an error when switching users. Did a fresh install, and now the keyboard and mouse freeze. This happens almost every session. I have to force shutdown. Sometimes it happens in 5 minutes, other times it happens in 4 hours. I don't want to sound like a jerk, but the Ubuntu problems are starting to get to me. I really want to use this. I like it, but I'm getting frustrated. 9.10 had wireless problems, and now I'm getting this freezing thing. Both the keyboard and mouse are USB connections. Everything else works when the freeze occurs, i.e., video's still play, web browser is still displaying gifs, etc. Only the mouse and keyboard freeze. All other operations seem normal.

The results were fine, ubuntu even got the onboard Wireless card working which was causing problems in windows. But after the install ubuntu has become erratic. It sometimes boots and does a lot of work but other times it'll boot and freeze as soon as i move the mouse, or even earlier. I am pretty certain the CD was not the cause as i've already used it to install 10.04 in another system and i'm writing from it right now. I got the 10.04 iso on the day it came out and thought that maybe it wasn't complete so tried updating my install, but it had an error during the update installation.
Now even the live CD won't work as it hangs in the loading screen.
I just installed 10.04 on an Acer 4736 laptop and was prompted for a software update of about 170 MB.

I went through with the update downloads and installation, got an error message of some packages not being found, and clicked on the "close" button on the dialogue to finish with the whole thing.
Now the Update Manager window with the grayed-out package updates didn't go away, and the cursor would always show the "busy" circle thing. I waited for a while, but nothing happened. I tried opening Firefox to check for anything about this on the net, but it wouldn't open.
So I left it alone, and it the screen went black (screensaver, I guess). When I tried to get back to the desktop, I couldn't. Screen wouldn't respond and it stayed black; no password prompt or anything.
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace wouldn't take me back to the login screen either.
After installing Fedora 15 from LiveUSB and rebooting it just hangs on a black screen with a blinking cursor (underscore) in the top left of the screen. If it's reached grub, it isn't responding to any commands, and mashing several key combinations (such as ctrl-alt-f1) will produce a beep usually emitted only by the BIOS (hinting that it may never be making its way to grub).

The only particularly interesting thing about the install is that by default it wanted to boot itself from the MBR on my primary-master (Windows) disk. Instead I selected the option to boot from "the first partition in sdb1", which is my primary-slave (Linux) disk, (the first partition being /boot). This way I can change which OS boots by changing the boot order in my BIOS, and so avoiding bootloader wars.

After that both systems hang with a black screen, running high CPU as I could hear the CPU fans running at max speed. Waited on both systems, but had to hard reset both.
#1 (using ext3, but mounted as ext2) tried to reboot, but had a LOT of file system issues that had to be resolved (fsck). After that the Video driver had to be reinstalled. Finally the system did reboot, but all icons on all GNOME desktops (~/Desktop) are white and have the ".desktop" extension in their name.
#2 (using ext4) came backup fine, but also required the video driver to be reinstalled. After that the system worked fine.
Still wondering how to resolve the GNOME Desktop Icon issue with #1. Tried to create a new user, but that had the same effect for the icons (launchers) in ~/Desktop. Icons for "Home", "Trash" and connected networks do display the normal names and have a normal image.
