Fedora Installation :: Nouveau Crash During Boot?

May 26, 2011

Just downloaded the x86_64 iso, copied it to my USB stick and added a grub4dos entry for direct booting.

title Fedora 15 x86_64
find --set-root /linux/fedora64.iso
map /linux/fedora64.iso (hd32)
map --hook
chainloader (hd32)


While it does mention nouveau, and I do use Nvidia graphics (PCIe GT 240) I believe the cause may be something else. Googling around leads me to a couple of forum threads that seem to relate to the core series of Intel processors, but I'm at a loss. I've also searched this forum however the search seems to either bring up every result under the sun and non seem to apply or no results at all. I know the card's supported as Ubuntu works flawlessly. I also tried booting in safe graphics mode, however the exact same thing happens.

I doubt using a USB stick in this manor would cause this problem, but if you suggest it i'll install from physical media.

I would post logs, however the shell it drops to seems to be severly limited (lacking reboot, even).

Fedora :: Removal Of Nouveau Driver Crashes System After Boot?

Feb 10, 2011

I wanted to replace the Nouveau with the proprietary Nvidia driver. I removed Nouveau and changed to console mode with "init 1". Realizing that i did not properly save the binary file i switched back to graphic mode with "init 5" only to have the system freeze. I rebooted and chose the usual kernel in the grub menu. The system continued to load but froze right after the Fedora logo (which hides the textual loading details) finished loading. I can not even switch to a console with ctrl-alt-F1.

Fedora Installation :: How To Disable Nouveau

Jul 4, 2011

The problem with X not starting up started after I upgraded kernel from which is what the FC15 came with. Before that I had X, without installing the nvidia.com driver (whatever came with the stock FC15-XFCE spin).I tried booting the old kernel and at first it worked but X again would not run. Now, after, above operations (reinstall of kernel-devel + kernel headers and all dependencies like glibc-common, glibcs-headers, dkms, gcc..) booting the old kernel does not work anymore: the framebuffer animation of the Fedora logo fillingup freezes at some point almost at the end; HD LED blinking hard. Maybe this means fsck is running and I need to give it more time..? I'll leave it booting when I go for lunch and see how it goes...

Fedora Installation :: F12 Installation Freezes Due To Nouveau Driver

Nov 30, 2009

As I mentioned before, I has having freezes while installing F12 (x86_64) with a GeForce 8600 GT. I was able to complete the installation by doing it with the "basic" video driver. However, I was still getting frequent freezes. I installed the testing Nvidia drivers, and the freezes went away. When it froze, it was a hard freeze -- it wouldn't respond to CTRL-ALT-DEL or SysRq (I did enable SysRq first). I had to do a hard reset.

Fedora Installation :: Nouveau Driver Reset To Defaults?

Jan 18, 2011

I installed the nvidia driver from the vendors homepage. But since it does not support regulation of brightness (and the display is that bright that I want to downlevel it), I wanted to go back to the default display driver which is the nouveau driver.So I uninstalled the nvidia driver and then I realized that I didn't make any backup of the xorg.conf file prior installing the nvidia driver. Shame on me, yeah.Now when the x-server started, it couldn't find the nvidia driver. Okay, fair as it was removed. Next to that my keyboard becomes unresponsive. That's really aching as I can not switch to a text-based console any longer.I'm able to boot into initmode 3 by editing the kernel parameters in the boatloader. I'm also able to edit the xorg.conf with vi in the shell then and start the xserver to test things by calling xinit.

I already tried to recover a bit from this situation by removing the references to the nvidia driver and replaced it with some information I could find on the nouveau homepage - but no luck so far, keyboard still freezes and login window does not appear. I could take a look into the xorg.0.log which warns me about the keyboard getting disabled but I do not really understand why. Next to that I find some other additional information. My computer experience is quite okay, but I'm somehow new to Fedora, I started half a year ago with Fedora 13 on my other laptop which worked like a breeze.

I wondered where I can find information about how to configure the xserver in the default configuration, if there is some reset functionality or so, that brings me back to installation defaults. Those worked ok for the nouveau driver. Unfourtionatly I was not able to gather the correct package name that would probably had helpded me by removing and installing it again.Next to fixing my setup, I had another idea as this is a quite new install to just re-run the install again on to that machine. Is this possible with keeping the files in my homedir?

Fedora Installation :: FC14 Upgrade Breaks X, Nouveau/nvidia?

Jun 17, 2011

My system with kernel-, NVIDIA 3800 + Samsung 2233 and 3Dvision kit works fine, but upon upgrading to kernel- the system won't go past the blue->white bar along the screen. The modprobe.d directory has the file blacklisting nouveau and there is the grub entry rdblacklist=nouveau, but do I need to re-run the nvidia installer. If so I think I need to reset the init level to stop X11 trying to load. and will I need to keep doing this everytime I upgrade the kernel if I have nvidia drivers installed?

Fedora :: Install F15 Without Nouveau To Make Nvidia Driver Installation Easier?

Jun 7, 2011

Can this be done similar to some other O/Ses so Nouveau doesn't pre-screw up the kernel for 3rd party drivers??? Would be great in F16 if we were given a choice re: wanting nouveau or not. I simply can not get F14 or F15 to work with the 270.xx drivers on recent equipment.

Fedora :: Crash On Boot, Also Cannot Boot Into Vista?

Feb 3, 2010

I have been trying to get my Toshiba L300 to dual-boot Fedora 12 and Vista, which it came pre-installed with. I shrunk my existing partitions to create some unallocated space, then installed F12 on it from the 64bit Live CD. Everything seemed to go fine, and I was able to boot into Fedora as normal. However if I tried to boot into Vista, I would get a message to the effect of:BOOTMGR is missingRather annoyed but undeterred, I decided to cross that bridge when I came to it, and went back into Fedora to start configuring it properly. I installed the latest version of WINE, and the mp3 support, then shut down. When I tried to boot into Fedora later on, everything started as normal, then it hung on a black terminal style screen, where I can type and press return for a new line, but nothing actually happens. Pressing ctrl-alt-del restarts the computer however.

To get out of this no-working-OS-limbo, I had to break out my Vista recovery console and run fixboot. This has got rid of the bootloader and now Windows starts up fine, but obviously this does not solve the problem of not being able to boot Vista while Fedora is also installed, and not being able to run Fedora presumably (but not for certain) after I have installed WINE

Fedora Installation :: Nouveau And NVidia Drivers - Jet-black Screen And A Completely Inexpressive Blinking White Cursor

Nov 29, 2009

Although I managed fairly quickly to get 3D enabled on the GF 7600GS of my desktop, it took me longer to get 3D up on the GF 9650M GT of my Asus laptop M70Vn. Although I made extensive use of the numerous procedures outlined here, none of them worked and booting my laptop always ended up with me facing a jet-black screen and a completely inexpressive blinking white cursor. My solution was simple: I did not blacklist Nouveau and problems mysteriously disappeared.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 Upgrade Download Crash Can't Boot 9.10

May 1, 2010

Was running the upgrade through the manager this morning and the download got about 3/4 of the way and froze up making the system unresponsive I left this for an hour to see if it would resolve its self but no luck so as the installation hadn't begun I hit the power button. BIG mistake now when I try boot to 9.10 it hits a black screen with white ubuntu logo much like 9.10 but no loading bar. it just hangs at this now. I am currently posting this from a live usb I made from an ISO of 10.4 i downloaded on my girl friends windows machine. Is it possible to either fix the 9.10 installation or update the files on the 9.10 installation to 10.4 from the live disk(I have the option to make a 9.10 live disk if needed)?

Ubuntu Installation :: Techniclolour Screen Crash During Boot?

May 15, 2010

Last night I switched from Lucid Ubuntu to Lucid Xubuntu. Whenever I switch on, I get a flash of several error messages on the boot screen; then few seconds when the screen turns all the colours of the rainbow, as if the display was damaged. Then it loads normally and seems fine.

This happened occasionally under Lucid Ubuntu, but don't recall it happening when I was using Karmic Ubuntu.

It doesn't exactly fill me with confidence, and might even goad me to dig out my old Karmic boot disc. Say it ain't so!

My laptop is an eMachines (acer) E625. But I doubt it is related to the hardware.

Feb 26, 2010

I have installed Linux mint and it failed on grub, if I press something grub crash, tired of that I install Ubuntu but my surprise was the same problem on grub, I was thinking if grub2 was the problem, so I tried grub legacy and was the same x_x

I remember use a old version of ubuntu with lilo (or was opensuse) but it works! but neither last ubunt nor mint with grub

Grub loader: select OS If I press ANY key it crash, if I wait the 9 seconds it enter to default OS (first option)

Note: It is neither PS2 nor USB keyboard, it's a laptop keyboard, a Compaq presario 2100

Note 2: I don't speak english very well ^_^

Ubuntu Installation :: Panic / Crash *Video*/ Cannot Boot Live Cd

May 13, 2010

I previously managed to install Ubuntu 9.04 using the regular Live-CD by using the no-ahci option. Now I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.4 LTS with an alternate install CD but even tho when i use the same options, I get a black screen then everything messes up and I get this: This is a video of what happens: [URL]

So I downloaded the regular installation CD and I had a big surprise again...The same thing happens except that its not white but purple. No matter which option I select its still the same. Note that this did the same thing when I tried to install Ubuntu 9.04 with the Alternate CD. I have a SiS motherboard. I tried OpenSuse just for the fun of it and it works!!! But the things is I don't like OpenSuse I would really like to make it work with Ubuntu.

Fedora :: System Crash Then Read Error At Boot?

Feb 23, 2011

I tend to get constant crashes when using internet browsers ( Google Chrome and Firefox ) basically the application hangs not moving in any way, then eventually completely freezes up, the system then locks up and finally crashes.

Upon system re-start I get "Read Error" at boot ( No further information, it literally just says "Read Error" ).

It is sometimes fixed by going into the BIOS and select "Hold on No Error".

I tried installing OpenBios to see if using different BIOS firmware would resolve the issue, but the OpenBios install failed ....so no dice there either.

I am trying to work out if it is a hard drive problem or if it is purely a problem with Fedora.

It was working fine for a couple of months and when it does boot up ... the system works fine, ( Until another crash ).

It seems like the internet browsers crash the system and then the system crashes and can then no longer remember how to boot up.

what this could be that could be software based....if not it looks like I will need a new hard-drive.

Fedora :: OS Crash On Dual-boot Vista Comp?

Feb 27, 2011

This morning I started my PBell desktop (dual booting Fedora/Vista) and Fedora opened fine. I started making entries in a text file with gEdit & when I saved it took a long while to complete the save (I had only entered a few lines of text).I then created a new folder in my home folder & tried to move other folders in to the new one but suddenly all the folders disappeared and the computer hung/froze. I tried a restart but again this did not complete fully (the cursor turned into a 'brick' & the progress bar hung).

I had to switch off & when I restarted I got Disk Read error. I tried switching off/on again and got Grub cursor. I switched off & on again & this time was told to put system disc in (I do not have a disc as I installed Fedora with USB install).So I switched off and left the computer for 15 minutes & when I switched on again it started Fedora normally.I experienced similar crashes with Ubuntu10.04 dual booting with Vista & this was the reason I decided to leave Ubuntu & install Fedora. When I used Ubuntu I did a DejaDup backup & I tried to use this with the DejaDup in Fedora to restore my data to Fedora but it didn't work.It appears there is some issue with my computer running Linux (dual boot Vista)-either Fedora or Ubuntu. How do I find out what the problem with my computer is and how do I proceed now?

Fedora Installation :: Missing Hardware Causes Crash Of Installation?

Apr 3, 2011

uring its installation I faced the same problem as now: because my default sound card is gone and I am using an external one, during the installation, everythnig goes fine untill the first try for boot of the system, when the blue lines loads, loads, and stop on about 80%.I was told by specialist that the reason fot this is that the hardware check is failing and that this is why the system can not load. He disabled my sound card so to Fedora not to check for it (I don't know how) and installed Fedora 13. Now I am using it. And I am using an external sound card as well and I have sound working.

But now I want to instakll Fedora 14. And i tried and the same happened again!!! After installation, the blue bars loads, alods, untill abou t 80% and then stop!Please, tell me what to do! I have no connecion to the specialist now but I want to get Fedora 14 nstalled, and working with sound. This is the problem - that I have only external sound card

Fedora Installation :: Installer Bug / Crash On Windows 7?

Oct 7, 2009

I currently run windows 7, I am interested in dual booting, upon burning the .iso to the disc using imgburn, I had a few problems with the installer when I ran the live disc, I'll assume it was personal causes, I googled several things for a simple solution, I went with using the Disk Manager in Windows 7 to shrink my current partition which I only have one which is running Win 7 on 140 GB's, using the shrink function in windows I unallocated 20 GB of that partition, I used this option because the option in F11's installer would not work at all. I rebooted from disc, loading the distro, and run the installer via desktop choose the use free space option and I got an error crash when it tries to execute this option which isnt the only time I got this error bug causing me to exit the installer, I copied the debug information in the details, I hope this is something simple because F11 isn't worth this much time.

Fedora Installation :: Installers Crash With Realtek 8111DL Enabled ?

Oct 27, 2009

I have a Biostar TA785GE which as I understand it, has a Realtek 8111DL on-board.

Booting with F11 32-bit DVD, and the F12 Live CD crashes before any user input, with indecipherable text on-screen (text mode, not X11).

Symptoms were the same with the Fedora 11 32-bit installation DVD, the Fedora 12 Live 32-bit CD and the CentOS 64-bit install DVD.

Booting with "linux text" mode (w/CentOS DVD) shows a kernel panic in ":r8169:rtl8169_init_one+0x369/0x9d4" from "pci_device_probe+0x100/0x180". I'll have to shutdown again to try the Fedora CD/DVDs, but if there's a different panic I'll post that tomorrow.

Disabling the on-board NIC allowed the boot to proceed, and get as far as detecting the hard drive partitions (where I stopped it since Ubuntu is installed).

Ubuntu 9.04 Workstation(Desktop?) install DVD worked fine, and I've installed it and am using it to enter this.

From Ubuntu 9.04 on this hardware: "uname -r" shows





So, my question: if I disable the NIC and install (alongside Ubuntu), will I be able to get the 8111DL working with a Fedora kernel?

Fedora Installation :: LiveCD-system Crash At Partition Step?

Jun 5, 2011

I run ubuntu, 2 partion, one primary for / , one for /home and ofc swap.When I run the Livecd, at the partition step I do:


-Select my / partition to install

-When I select next I get the error "blah blah, must be probably a bug...." and system crashes.

After system crach I can't boot into Ubuntu or anything, it gets me on the "error 11 ( think is 11 ) grub> " screen.Also, I think its something with my nouveau drivers, I think i get an error when boots the LiveCD something like "fudc...". It happens really fast and I can't read it properly.I did this procedure twice to write the errors, but it happens too fast to check them out. Also, is there a way to prepare the system before installing the Fedora, to avoid these errors?
