Fedora :: Unable To Login After Applying Some Updates To F11 / Fix It?

Dec 12, 2009

After applying some updates to F11, I was unable to login. After putting the username and password in, the dialog would go away and it would appear that the window manager was trying to load. Somewhere in the process the mouse and keyboard stops responding. The HD activity lights flashes for quite a while but later goes out.

Hoping that F12 would help, I upgraded. The upgrade went well but the problem still exists.

Ubuntu :: Desktop Changed After Applying Updates?

Jun 18, 2010

So I just recently installed Ubuntu Lucid Lynx over my old XP system and I have been loving it so far. I did run into a problem though. Shortly after installing Ubuntu, it prompted me to install updates and I did so. After the updates had installed, my computer restarted and the whole desktop theme/look changed to a older looking version of Ubuntu. I really liked the look of Lucid Lynx and have been trying to get it back.

Ubuntu :: Cups Printing Breaks After Applying Updates 10.4?

I noticed that after applying updates to my ubuntu 10.4 desktop my printer was not working. I discovered that cups was no longer running and I was unable to get it to start. After re-installing cups using the below command everything is now working. This is the 2nd time I've had to re-install cups after patching.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall cups

Security :: Error On CentOS Server After Applying The Latest Updates

Jun 8, 2011

I just put the latest updates onto My CentOS 5.6 server. It started life as a 5.4 Server, then the upgrades took it to 5.6.

The latest updates did a Kernel Update and the server sent me two messages : -

Ubuntu :: Wireless Stopped Connecting - Applying Regular Updates Via Update Manager

May 9, 2011

My self-built PC had a BT wireless adaptor in it which worked, albeit after a bit of a faff, with Ubuntu 10.10 in connecting to my BT HomeHub2.

When I came to use it last week it would not connect. I'd not changed any hardware but I had been applying regular updates via Update Manager.

Bearing in mind the "faff" factor, I decided to try a different (Edimax) wireless card but got the same result. Upgrading to 11.04 has made no difference either.

It does *try* to connect but fails, so I think the card is installed correctly. I've also tried a full reset on the HomeHub and the setup works fine with W7.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 After Latest Updates Unable To Login To The System

Jul 15, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit on my new desktop. After installation all gone well.

The initial upgrades after fresh installation also ran well and I was able to reboot and use the system successfully.This was before three-days.Yesterday night I ran again the Update Manager and installed the available (4-5) updates and then I installed Sun-Java-JDK using Synaptic Package Manager using the packages from the canonical partners.

After installation was done I shut down the system and in the morning when
I restarted the system the login screen is coming up but on entering the login credentials a black screen with some text(unable to see the text) flashes and returns me back to login screen.I tried logging in with both normal and admin type users.But admin type user too encounters the same problem.

I have partitioned my 500GB into 5 partitions and there is sufficient data on each partition.

I assume fresh installation would fix it and the data on logical partitions would be intact but doing this re-installation would require me to install the updates again and do all the settings I did till now again.

Ubuntu :: After Applying An Update, Getting A Black Screen At Login?

Mar 17, 2011

After applying an update about two or three days ago, I restarted my system and now I'm getting a black screen at login. I can hear the brief drum sound clip that plays when the login dialog box pops up, but the screen is completely black and I can't see anything. I'm still able to access low graphics mode via the fail-safe option in the recovery mode menu. So far I've tried the following commands in the terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-

Yesterday I applied the su security patch to my openSuSE 11.2 x86_64 system.After applying the patch, any attempt at su failed, and after rebooting the system earlier this morning any login (root, user, otherwise) fails with a "Permission Denied".Is it possible that the su update somehow messed up my (standard) pam settings?

Fedora :: No Login-screen After 505 Updates.

Apr 17, 2010

I' installed Fedora 12 from an installation DVD, repartitioned my hard drive etc.... After the installation has finished, there were 505 updates to install.

Here my problems started. Everytime I selected "all updates" I've got an error.

So i decided to install first all the updates with "rpm" - "yum" and "packages"
After this I could select all the other updates and install them.

During the installation my pc freezed. Rebooted and after the login there were always sessions "starting file manager" that was trying to start, one after the other... I proceeded my updates, and those processes stopped.

Ok, finally, all updates were installed and as good as I'm I rebooted my pc.......
My pc boots normaly, but the moment my logon-window should apear, I've a black screen... nothing else....

I can reboot with kernel but how can I fix the error with my kernel

someone who knows the solution???

I found one who told me to install following packages:

- kmod-nvidia-PAE.i686
- xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686

After this I've got my previous problem (before my complete reinstallation). Just booting till GRUB and nothing more.

Fedora :: After Installing Updates Unable To Restart Computer

Apr 1, 2010

I recently updated my software (on Fedora 13) and after the updates had finished installing, it said that the computer required a restart. I noticed that I could no longer type anything into the search bar on Firefox without an error message appearing. So I thought it best to restart the computer then. When restarting, the loading screens took much longer than usual. The guitar pick shape that fills with white was stalling around the top. (I know, I love my complete comprehension of the problem too.) I pressed escape, and was given this message on a black screen.

Welcome to Fedora
Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
starting udev:udevd-work[517]: '/sbin/modprobe-b pci: v000014E4d0000170Csv00001028sd000001F1bc02sc00i00' unexpected exit with status 0x0009
setting hostname (my computers name):

This is as far as I can get. I press Esc again, and I see the completed fedora logo, but nothing else happens. I press Esc again, and I come back to the previous screen, and this time there are two of the above messages. My computer is fairly old (four years), so I understand if the hard drive is deteriorating. I would like to have use of my computer back, but at the very least I would like to recover some files that I have not backed up.

Fedora :: 11, Unable To Fully Login To Desktop?

Sep 11, 2009

I'm running a Dell D630 laptop that uses the onboard intel i915 chipset for both audio and video. This is in a docking station that's connected up to a larger monitor. The laptop boots just fine as it has been for quite a while now. I get to the login prompt, enter my credentials and then after pressing enter and it looks like it's going to load my profile, the wallpaper updates but then the screen goes black for a moment and I'm then brought back to the login prompt again. The system is up on the network so I was able to ssh into it and capture the following from the logs during a login attempt.

Sep 11 08:03:27 jdesilets kernel: [drm:i915_gem_object_unbind] *ERROR* Attempting to unbind pinned buffer

Fedora :: Unable To Open Login Screen

Oct 14, 2009

I clean-installed Fedora 11 and everything was running well. I wanted to try Bacula backup program and so I installed the Development package in other to compile Bacula. When I finished the installation, I discovered a bunch of foreign language supports had been installed. I just erased them. While doing so, I must have also erased some other files.

When I rebooted, the bootup process went well until just before the login screen. The screen showed the Fedora logo, f, and got stock there. I was able to login remotely from another local network computer via vncviewer. I found that GNOME dsktop was missing. I logged on to Fedora 11 text mode by issuing CTL+ATL+F3 and did 'yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment" By remote login from another computer, I determined that the GNOME Desktop had been restored. But the Fedora 11 still stil stuck just before the login screen. What do you think is missing? What do I need to reinstall?

Fedora :: Unable To Login As Root Or Any Other User?

Jul 6, 2010

After upgrading FEdora 13, user ravi was added. Then after few days neel was added. Both of the users were already existing. So when attempting login to neel, we found that every file is owned by ravi. So we did$chown -R neel:neel But after that problem started and when we rebooted the machin, there were no list of users on login screen. (then I connected to that comp remotely, it worked, but somehow I was not able to switch to root) It says incorrect password (though I new it very well). So I went to maintenance mode and changed the root password, and rebooted. Still problem persists.Now I am not able to login as root (from anywhere, login screen , terminal, remote)No list of usernames on login screen ( but i can choose, other and type login-password)
