Ubuntu :: Crashed 5 Times In The Last Hour And A Half - Constantly ?

Nov 29, 2010

I want to know what other people have done to stop their computers from crashing. My main computer has now crashed 5 times in the last hour and a half.

I am not using Compiz, and to the best of my knowledge it is uninstalled. I try not to use flash with the internet. I am using the 64 bit version of 10.04, because I want to make use of my 8GB of RAM.

The computer crashes constantly. Constantly. Usually when I am using it. I can leave it on for days without a problem; but as soon as I need to get work done, it starts crashing.

Some specs:
ASUS P7P55D Pro motherboard
Intel i5-750 processor.
evga GTS 250 video card with NVIDIA drivers (uptodate)
Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit

I need a gameplan to make this computer stop crashing. how to start diagnosing the causes of these crashes.

Software :: Cron Clock Is An Hour Off To System Time

Mar 31, 2010

I have cron jobs running and the timing is critical, because I'm running Nessus scans on production servers. If I hit them at the wrong time, I'm toast. But when I check the cron log, I see that it is an hour off. Here is the output for the command "clock":
Wed 31 Mar 2010 03:01:26 PM CDT -0.257677 seconds

And this is the tail of the cron log:
Mar 31 16:00:01 nes-001 CROND[8790]: (root) CMD (/Nessus/Targets/NessusScriptDataCenterScan.test)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 CROND[8822]: (root) CMD (run-parts /etc/cron.hourly)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 run-parts(/etc/cron.hourly)[8822]: starting 0anacron
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 anacron[8832]: Anacron started on 2010-03-31
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 anacron[8832]: Normal exit (0 jobs run)
Mar 31 16:01:02 nes-001 run-parts(/etc/cron.hourly)[8834]: finished 0anacron

Cron thinks it is 4:00 p.m., but it's really 3:00 p.m. How do I tell Cron what time it is? (Stopping and restarting the crond service did not change it.)

I recently decided to try KDE4 and would like the change the clock on the panel to display 12 hour format and not the default 24hour format but i can not find where to change this option currently the clock looks like the attached picture.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Half Is In English And Half In Another Language After Upgrading To 10.04

May 27, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04 and so far I have those problems:

1. Before, everything in my system was in English. Now, half is in English, half in another language (PCManFM, some menus etc). I tried setting up Language Support but it changes nothing.

2. Cursor themes work only when hovering the mouse over "X" buttons in the right top corner of the window. As soon as I move the mouse somewhere else, it goes back to default cursor theme, even though I tried selecting 5 different themes - same result.

4. Hibernation don't work anymore. s2disk saves image to disk and then it resumes it but computer stops on text message along the lines of "Resume completed successfully".

5. Changing volume with keyboard shotcuts no longer works.

6. Smplayer does not display picture anymore when playing movies. The view is just empty. I can only hear the soundtrack. It is using XV filter.

7. PCmanFM that used to worked flawlessly, now after going into 1 or 2 subdirectories stops reacting to clicks on file/folder list. Need to open new instance to be able to do anything and this again would become unusable after visiting 1-2 folders.

OpenSUSE :: Switch Over From A 24 Hour To A 12 Hour Format?

Aug 5, 2010

I need to change the time displayed in the task bar from a 24 hour clock to a 12 hour format. I could not find the relevant settings in OpenSuse 11.2 and same is the case for 11.3 as well.

how to make the change? I have tried System Settings ---> Computer Administration ---> Date & Time; but I was not able to make the desired change.

Similarly, I have a digital clock widget that shows GMT + 5.5 hours and I need to change that to 12 hour format as well.

Ubuntu :: How Do I Change Time To 12-hour Instead Of 24-hour

Jun 17, 2011

I just switched over to Lubuntu, and so far, it's been great.It's rendering quite well with my laptop, even though the fan is constantly running.I've had some small annoyances that I haven't been able to figure out. How do I get the power button and/or other related actions to the 'start' menu? Is there a way to drag and drop applets like in Ubuntu? How do I setup default brightness like in Ubuntu? How do I change the time to normal US time (12 hour instead of 24 hour)How do I change the time to a 12-hour instead of 24-hour?Is there a software center?

Fedora :: No Output From Cron Jobs In /etc/cron.daily

Jan 29, 2011

I have added some executable scripts to /etc/cron.daily but don't get the stdout/stderr output from them as mail (or anywhere else I have found). At least one of them is running (because I can see that it has added a file to the disk).

The peculiar thing is that I do get the output from /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch (part of the logwatch package) as an email each day.

The MAILTO line in /etc/crontab is "MAILTO=root" (unchanged from default). Same for /etc/anacrontab.

I do have an alias at the end of /etc/aliases which redirects root's mail to my own account, but this alias works fine for mail I send manually. (It also appears to work fine for the output from the file /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch.)

Fedora :: Evolution Limited To 12-hour Day

Jun 14, 2011

I'm running a fully updated Fedora 15.In Evolution's calendar, my days are limited to 12 hours: from 0:00 to 11:45, always.Under preferences->Calendar and Tasks->General, I have "day begins" as 07:00, and "day ends" as 23:30. Changing these numbers has no effect whatsoever. Selecting "12 hour" under "time format" also does nothing.I REALLY hope this isn't a deliberate change by the Evolution developers. My days have normally consisted of more than 12 hours since I was three or four (I'd have to call my parents to ask). Jokes aside, what's going on and how do I change this?

Fedora Installation :: Just Vent: YUM UPDATE Takes An Hour

Feb 15, 2010

Fresh 12 install. I did a yum install yum-fastestmirror and it took over 30 minutes to download its database, at a speed of 5-9 KB/s. Drove me nuts to wait 30 minutes to download a 60Kb program. Then after the install of fastest-mirror, I thought I was out of the woods, and launched a YUM UPDATE, and its still downloading fedora/filelists_db at 13KB/s. Estimated to take over 20 minutes. After that, it will be downloading the 500MB of stuff - hopefully at a better rate. Sigh!! No way to speed this up?

Fedora :: Perl Bot Script Ending And Restarting Every Hour?

Dec 31, 2010

I had an aging RH 7.3 server that I decided was time to upgrade the hardware and software as well. I chose Fedora 13.This server runs an ircd with several bots connected to it. The bot in question is a perl bot based on the old dreambot script. On the RH 7.3 server, it ran forever. On the new Fedora 13 server, it does an EOF and restarts every hour, exactly one hour after it's been started.Is there something limiting the time that a perl script can execute?

Fedora :: F13 Crashes On Half Of Boots / Resolve This?

Jun 12, 2010

Hello everyone. I switched over to Fedora a little while ago, maybe a month or two, towards the end of when 12 was out. 12 ran just fine, but around when I upgraded to 13 I started experiencing issues. I first upgraded by switching repositories and installing via yum, which seemed to run fine for awhile. However, came to the point where about every other boot (a little more often, actually), the system would crash at the login screen, not allowing me to login. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or other rescue keys don't work- in fact, if the mouse is still working, they freeze the pointer as well.

Finally I decided to get the 13 DVD and re-install. Downloaded, media checked out, ran the install... and I'm still having the same issues. I know I should be providing more info here, but I'm not sure what log files to look for and post here. A few notes of relevance are that I've tried changing the ACPI settings in my BIOS to be as compatible as possible, and also tried booting using noacpi, which doesn't seem to be fixing it- I also have Nouveau installed.

So, what should I do? Anything I need to provide to help troubleshoot, I'll gladly do.

Fedora Installation :: Stuck Half Way Through Install / Get Full?

Apr 17, 2010

I bought a new issue of Linux Format magazine and saw it had a bootable disk with Fedora installer/live DVD on it which I was eager to try out "The worlds most advanced Linux distro" I put the DVD in my computer and rebooted it. I selected 'install or upgrade'. It started to load (blasting white text at me). I skipped the media test but then the screen was black and reacted to no mouse moving or keyboard pressing. Not even the OFF button, so I pressed RESET and selected 'install with basic video driver' this time it worked. It didn't fill my whole screen like many 'basic video drivers' but they don't cut off much so I was willing to forgive Fedora using one it was proberly only for the install anyway I could download a new one after. I have a Radeon HD 4200 (extreamly crap) intergrated into the north bridge. I can't afford an expensive graphics card. I build it myself so I can tell you what parts it's got if needed. Anyway I progressed through the setup without problems until I got to the partitionor which defaulted to 'Replace existing Linux system' this would delete Ubuntu an maybe Windows 7. I changed it to custom layout or something like that. It started a partitioner and I remembered I wanted to give ubuntu 30GB more room so I resized it. I created a new 50 GB logical partition and select it as the '/' partition, plenty more space for future Linux distributions. Here's the real problem. Soon after I hit install it said some repositorys require a network connection. It had only one option 'eth0' my motherboard has built in Ethernet but I connect to the net with a wifi card I do not have a cable long enough to reach this computer on the other side of the room. So how was I suppost to continue the setup? I pressed okay hoping it would give up and let me continue the setup but it didn't it said they was an error connecting to the Internet therefore setup could not continue. With only one option: 'Exit Installer'. GRRRR. Interestingly enough after I clicked it the disk drive's light kept flashing but the screen went black forcing me to reboot. Can anyone help me so I can install "The worlds most advanced Linux distribution"*

Fedora :: Fedora 15 Cut Battery Life In Half

Jun 30, 2011

So I just installed F15 and I really like it. I had to upgradde to kernel version to get my wireless from disconnecting -- aparentlyey it is a bug in kernels 2.6.38.x .Now my problem, and it was also a problem with kernel 2.6.38.x, is that my battery life on my netbook (gateway LT2320, atom n450 @1.6, gma 3150, 1gb ram, 1024x600) is cut by half. I used to get 7-8 hours of battery life, with Crunchbang, Ubuntu, etc., but now i get 4.5 hours.I have read that this is a problem with the current kernels available after 2.6.37.x.

My question is have they found a fix? Are we going to have to wait for 2.6.31? How much longer until that kernel is in the fedora repositories?

Ubuntu :: Do Cron Updates Erase Cron Entries

Sep 19, 2010

I put in my cron entries to run my backup script which rsyncs my data to my 2nd drive, however on a hunch I checked my backup drive which mounts automatically via fstab and I realize it had not ran in a while. I checked cron and there were no entries for it. I got to wondering if I should ever be worried about a cron update coming down and over-writing my existing cron file with the backup entries in it to run.
