Debian Multimedia :: X.Org Infinite Loop Bug In Squeeze?

Mar 25, 2010

I think i came across a bug in X server in squeeze. I would report it to the bug tracking system in debian packages but the think is I am not entierly sure about it.When i start X (whether it is through startx or service gdm start or auto startup through init when the pc boots) the computer PC seems to lock up.The screen goes black right after X initializes and before anything is show in the screen and if i wait a about 10 minutes the monitor either goes in standby or out of range. PC seems unresponsive to both keyboard commands and mouse but my LCD screen in my G15shows the time skips 1 sec every 2 sec (from 19:22:22 goes straight to 19:22:24).

I have a custom 2.6.33 kernel which i build but it happens with both 2.6.32-trunk and 2.6.32-3 offical kernels from the squeeze repository so i dont think that this is the problem.My PC is a P4 3.75Ghz with 2Gb RAM and an NVidia 6800GT with the binary drivers from nvidia. I have tried diffrent versions from my grapgics drivers ( & with no change in the behaviouThis is the syslog from the time my pc started and then "stuck". I left it for some time before i hard reset it

Programming :: Infinite Loop That Isnt Infinite?

Oct 27, 2010

i was playing around with c++ recently and for laughs and giggles i came up with this little program

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()


theoretically that should be an infinite loop but it in fact does terminate eventually echoing out 'FIRE!'

just wondering if even though in theory this should be an infinite loop (a number repetedly divided by 2 should never reach 0 thus the conditions of the loop should never be satisfied, hence infinite loop) perhaps in practice limitations of the variable types prevent this?

Software :: Detecting An Infinite Loop In A Process?

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to develop a process monitor, or use existing monitors to achieve the below given actions.

1) Restart a processes if it crashes.
2) Restart a processes if it is stuck in an infinite loop.

The sample code below describes the structure of the process.

statement 1....
statement 2....
while (1)


The goal is to restart the process if it is stuck in a loop, inside the outer while loop. Given this scenario, what would be the most efficient way to monitor such a process?

A sample solution would look something like this: statement 3 will write to file1 every time it is executed and we know that the maximum execution time of the outer while loop is 30 seconds. A second, timer driven process, checks for file1 being modified every 30 seconds. If the file is not modified, process 1 will be restarted assuming, process1 is stuck in a while loop.

General :: Xinetd Server Configuration - Infinite Loop?

Apr 14, 2011

I have a java server console program that I have configured xinetd to start when connection comes in on a given port and then the program runs in an infinite loop receiving inputstream from telephone exchanges. The thing is, when a new chunk of stream comes from the exchange xinetd forks a new process each time. I tried setting the wait parameter to yes and restarted the deamon, but no success. How can I stop this behavior and have the deamon just direct the stream to the process already running? Am I missing something in my config or is it just incorrect?

My config is as follow:
instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 50 10
includedir /etc/xinetd.d

And then my actual config,
service aos_larmar
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
wait = yes
instances = 256
server = /home/gunnl/java/
port = 5204
disable = no

My server OS is, Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 7)

Ubuntu :: Infinite Boot Cycle Loop After Grub

Jan 26, 2011

When I boot one of my machines, it gets as far as GRUB, then proceeds to a blank screen for a second, and then repeats the cycle all over again - ad infinitum. I have tried previous kernels on the list with the same results Also, I cant boot into recovery mode either.

I have run Memtest successfully from the GRUB options and no errors appear in the results. I have tried booting from a Live CD and here I get as far as the "OS choosing screen". When I then select one and hit Enter, the screen goes blank and the machine reboots as before.

I can go into safe graphics mode and things look fine except compiz isn't running. I have tried going into login and changing it to log me in automatically but the problem remains.

I've tried using my previous kernal and I have the same issue as this newer one.

I've tried loading gdm from CLI and the problem is still there.

Ubuntu :: Infinite Startup Loop - OEM / Black Screen

Apr 18, 2011

I'm doing a dual boot Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7 on my Asus UL80v. When I restart and keep going into Ubuntu I'm fine, but I think if I go to Windows and then restart, the infinite start up happens, and I'm currently stuck in this. It'll go to the OEM screen, then a black screen with a cursor, then it goes black, and then back to the OEM screen and so on and so forth.

Luckily I have Ubuntu 10 on my flash drive, so I'm booting to that while I try to figure out this. Which reminds me, when I use the flash drive, there's an option to boot to local disk which also does not work, if that's worth anything. Before this happened, I ran check disk on windows because I ran into some partition troubles. There seemed to be no problems, and I can still access the drives from this flash Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Printing Gets Infinite Loop Of Blank Pages?

Jun 25, 2011

I installed Xubuntu and was thrilled to see that it had already setup my Brother HL-2140 USB laser printer.However, there is something seriously wrong with the setup. When you try and print, even a test page - it just churns through the entire paper tray printing nothing. Also, when you restart the computer it tries to print the jobs again. I went to Printing and selected the printer but could not find where you could see the print job queue. I did see it during troubleshooting and was able to delete the jobs on the troubleshooting screen.

Fedora :: Stuck In Infinite Loop On Login After Changing Wallpaper?

Aug 17, 2011

Fedora 15, fresh install.I changed the wallpaper from default to a solid colour. After switching between gradient to colour the system crashed logged me out and upon logging in it simply runs endlessly accessing my harddisk but never actually loading the desktop.I can kill X and reboot, but it's the same problem waiting for me on restart. I really don't want to re-install or delete users (to put it in context, I just spent 3 days trying to install Fedora because Anaconda doesn't know how to install GRUB correctly).

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Shell Goes Into An Infinite Loop After Upgrading To 10.10?

Oct 20, 2010

I have just upgraded from 10.4 to 10.10 (x64), and now when I run gnu screen the new shell session goes into an infinite loop displaying:

Quote: Linux dave-desktop 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:45:36 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu 10.10

Welcome to Ubuntu! * Documentation: [URL]...

0 packages can be updated.
0 updates are security updates.

repeatedly until I hit CTRL-C and break out of screen. I tried tmux and that did the same thing, so it is a problem with the shell initialisation rather than with the screen program. However I can start bash, zsh or sh directly in a terminal with no problem.

Debian Multimedia :: XF86Audio Multimedia Keys Not Working In Squeeze

Jun 23, 2011

I finally installed Squeeze on my laptop and found out that the XF86Audio multimedia keys do not work.

When I press them, they're correctly identified by xev but they do not produce the desired effect (raise/lower/mute volume, play/pause/stop/prev/next song in media players like Sonata).

Funnily enough though, they do work in Audacious, which has its own plugin to manage XF86Audio media keys.

So it's like the action of pressing these keys is not intercepted by the system and no event is triggered.

I think this might be due to a missing package or configuration but I have no idea where to look...

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze Compiling Dwm From Debian Source / Reality Check

Aug 18, 2011

Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze

apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring
apt-get build-dep dwm

It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!

Debian :: Conky Making DNS Request Infinite Loops

Sep 14, 2015

For some reason my Conky is making my machine do infinite DNS requests to the last host I'm connected with. For example, if I visit it'll start the infinite DNS request to this host. If I close the navigator it stops. If I try to connect to it starts the DNS requests. If I disconnect it stops. Why is it happening?

That's my script:

Code: Select allbackground no
update_interval 1
total_run_times 0
own_window yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_transparent yes

Debian Multimedia :: Multimedia Crashes On Squeeze ?

May 13, 2011

I've just installed Squeeze 6.01a from the xfce iso image on an old PIII which has been running Lenny with xfce without any problems. It's a fresh install after a reformat.

Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -

Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.

Debian Multimedia :: AIM Error With Pidgin 2.6.5-2 From Squeeze?

Mar 1, 2010

On a fresh install of squeeze, I can't log in to an AIM account with being immediately disconnected and given this error: You have been connecting and disconnecting too frequently. Wait ten minutes and try again. If you continue to try, you will need to wait even longer.

I waited for several hours before trying to reconnect, but got the same message. Searching for the error led me to some bug reports from upwards of three years ago.

Strangely, this error hasn't occurred on any of my other squeeze systems.

I can ping as well as; both resolve to for me. I tried changing the "Server" under "Advanced" to this address, but again I got the same error.
