General :: Will Not Reboot After Install (Arch) - -bash: /sbin/reboot: Input/output Error
Oct 7, 2010
I am using sda1 as /, which is a bootable drive. I do not know if my problem is that I did not create a /boot drive. After removing the iso dvd, I tried to reboot and I get this back: -bash: /sbin/reboot: input/output error Then it returns me to the terminal prompt.
Firstly, i'm NEW to Linux and my very first time with DSL. I'm installing this on an older Dell Latitude laptop.
I just finally got the DSL installed on my HDD successfully and then I added feh to start and run at start up, then I rebooted and now i'm getting this error: No, directory, logging in with HOME=/ -bash: cd: /home/dsl: Permission denied
I have tried reading numerous websites but none explains to the level whereby I can understand. I even tried rebooting from the CD, but could not figure out how/what to do next?
The question is, can someone explain how I can use the DSL CD to try to correct this error. More importantly, can you explain in layman terms so that I can actually put it good use.
Also, some additional questions I have....when you download a file where does it save to?
I am having a strange problem I've never encountered before. I have an Asus Eee S101 10.1" netbook with the 32GB SSD. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Edition.
The other day, I was browsing with Firefox, when suddenly the entire computer came screeching to a halt. Had to power it down with the power button. After this happened, I have been unable to use the same Firefox profile I had been using. I had to start Firefox from the command line with the -ProfileManager switch, then create a new profile to keep browsing.
I wanted to completely get rid of the old profile, so from the Profile Manager I tried to delete the old one. Computer hung, had to reboot with the power switch. I then tried to browse to the .mozilla/firefox directory and delete the profile's directory there, from both Nautilus and the command line. Both times, the computer froze.
I tried a few more times, and the couple of times the computer didn't freeze, I got an error from the command line saying a Bash input/output error. After this error appeared, it would appear no matter what command I ran - I couldn't even run a sudo reboot now.
I can create/delete other files and directories, just not that Firefox profile.
What I want to do is be able to update my twitter account with the current defcon status (this is really more of a learning thing than something I actually want to be doing). The original script for tweet replaced $@ with $1, but if I use:
it only uses the first word in the string, similarly if I used $2 or $3.So I changed it to $@. The normal function still works, but typing:
updates twitter with nothing.
EDIT I should mention the /dev/null is there to catch the output of curl, otherwise it won't run silently. It still updates twitter normally with the send to /dev/null
I'm having some trouble installing Ubuntu 10.04. What I am trying to do is completely wipe all things on my computer and install Ubuntu. I have followed the instructions from Ubuntu's homepage on how to download the ISO, and ran their program to put it onto a portable USB device. Through doing all of this, I receive no error messages. Then it tells me to change the BIOS to boot from USB, so I did that. I've successfully accessed the install menu and filled in all the information requested (i.e. computer name, account name, etc.). I select that I want to delete the current partitions and use only Ubuntu. It starts to install, but at 67%, while copying files, I receive an error.
This error is: The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 5] Input/output error This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.
Just done my first ubuntu 10.04 install on a hp pavilion a320a, the install seems to have went well, though while it is shutting down and before rebooting the following error appears across the screen: [16866.760778 end_request: I/O error dev sr0 sector 504392]
Before this error appears at the bottom of the screen the error scrolls on the screen with a different number at the beginning of the error where 16866 etc (different number each line) remainder of the error remains the same maybe different sector number but not sure, there is way too many to write down in the time they are on the screen.
I have a PC with below configuration.cpu intel core i5 650 boxed 3.2 ghz socket 1156MB intel P55 Chipset DH55P J BoxedHDD WD SATA 2Tb 64MB cacheI installed "ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso", and looks grub2 is not installed properly. I do not see all the files in grub install folder.Please let me know, ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso is the right installable or not.If it is right one, how to re-install grub2 properly.
I've managed to boot up ubuntu-10.10-desktop-amd64 using PXE, but when the installer is copying the files it fails. I've md5sum checked the iso and it is OK.
This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk.

So, I recently installed, or.. ermm.. Tried to install Ubuntu 11.04, I did it with a CD. This is about my 4th time around with Ubuntu, so I'm not completely new to it. But, I used to have Windows 7 on here, and I decided I wanted to go with Ubuntu, so I downloaded and burned the CD, and did all the stuff you need to do to install Ubuntu. I got far into the installation, and then the installer crashed saying something about an Input/Output error, and it could be the CD being dirty or damaged.
Now, I'm stuck with a broken operating system because I chose to replace my Windows 7 partion with Ubuntu, and there's no terminal! Everything else seems to be here, it's just really buggy, and I can't get much of anything installed.
Everytime I attempt to Install Ubuntu or Mint, I get the above error and I am unsure as to why it keeps happening. I read on other forums it can be due to your optical drive so I tried 4 different burners and 3 different types of CD's.
I know they work fine because I use them for other PC's. I've used them on windows XP, Vista, 7 and Mandriva Linux without a single problem. It's only when attempting to install Ubuntu or Mint that I get these errors and it happens every time.
In the error it also mentions that their may be a problem with your HDD, but I've used that HDD for windows xp through its whole life, I only just reformatted earlier in an attempt to install Linux.
Installed 11.4 on a machine with two SATA drives which had previously been running Windows 2003. I deleted the Windows partitions and created a new partition scheme: Swap, root and one additional partition on the first disk, one large partition on the second disk. Install runs fine but upon reboot I get "Error loading operating system". Booting off a Windows floppy and running FDisk shows that the root partition is marked as active.
I have a WD external disk, NTFS file system. I mounted it on my Red Hat. While on the external disk, I deleted a directory, which was sent to .Trash-root of that disk.I went to .Trash-root and did rm -rf to completely delete that directory, but I got the following error: cannot remove `<directory>': Input/output errorWhen I do ls -la on that directory that I wish to remove, it shows me it has 0 files inside. But not only I can't remove it, I can't do anything else with it (copy, etc). And I have all the rights on that directory, so this isn't the problem.
I tried several times to install sue 11.3 on a amd 64 system by configuration a soft raid1 by this order:
md0 /boot md1 / md2 swap
or my problem, after configuration and install over the dvd and yast installation menu, after the first reboot I have a grub error -> nothing found.If i try to setup suse 11.2 over the same method, it works.after a system upgrade to 11.3 all is working fine. The only problem is by installing directly the 11.3 I also re-download the dvd and try over the netcd and it's all the time the same error.I searched in the forum but nothing found (perhaps i do a wrong search)
I am fully aware that these following photo's are not all required for a full understanding of my issue, but I will post them regardless. Checklist to see if my computer meets best results possible for the installation. Screenshot.jpg These photos showing here are where I plan on Installing Ubuntu
NOTE: The installation has started, but only to shortly be stopped by my error message.
This is my ERROR!!! message
No matter what I try to click on, the window simply ignores the command, regardless of the amount of times I issue the command.
Pavillion laptop crashed and I can not find all of my recovery discs. The computer will not allow me to do an internal recovery so I ordered a recovery download on line and burned to a disc. when I put the disc in the graphics came up and in started in Live-mode but then the error mess came: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libpci.so.3: cannot read file data: input/output error. The site said it was an ISO file but then it had a program it had me run to change it and burn the disc.
I am not sure if that Subject really explains it, basically I have a script that executes a CLI java-applet that requires a passphrase from the user. I can easily execute this by issuing the -p argument followed by the passphrase however that shows up on possible logs or at least on the results of the ' ps ' command. If you do not supply this -p argument it provides a new line with the echo " Enter Passphrase: " and asks for input.
how can I provide a result/input for the Passphrase request and is it still possible to throw this application in the background with the ' & ' following the command? I have seen a few examples that show a /bin/expect that expects a result and sends a command however I would like to refrain from any extra dependencies. Example of Regular Execution of application:
this has been driving me crazy all week, no matter what I try it just wont work.I have written a script that installs several programs, half way through it requires the machine to be rebooted.what I've been trying do do without success, is when the system restarts a terminal window opens and the script resumes.I've googled this, and it seems other people have aslo tried and failed to acheive the desired result.ok, I know it would be easy to just run the script without the terminal window (using cron @reboot or rc.local), but I really need the verbose output as the user must make 2 selections on the remaing installations.
I am running Windows 7 on an HP laptop trying to create a dual boot with Ubunta 9.0.4(?). I left 300 gb in unpartioned space when I loaded Windows 7 to load linux in (new hard drive). I then partioned the 300gb thru Windows using Paragon Hard Disk Manager. After installing Ubunta, it dumps me at the command prompt. Graphics problem?
