Red Hat :: INIT - Id "a02" Respawning Too Fast; Disabled For 5 Minutes
My Red Hat Enterprise Server ws release 3 machine is receiving this error message.


From what I understand it is because it is failing to load a service or program so the system overrides it to prevent it from eating up my systems resources.

My question is; how do I isolate the problem process in order to fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Respawning Too Fast - Error: "Respawning Too Fast - Disabled For 5 Min" Freeze
Installing 11.2 from KDE LiveCD on an IBM ThinkCenter with 3.2Gb CPU and 1Gb RAM. Ubuntu 9.04 on first two partitions. I go through the configuration, click to 'install': Install display bars remain blank. After 2-3 minutes, black screen with scroll of attempted installation pieces and the error message: "Respawning too fast. Disabled for 5 min." Freeze.

Other posts mention problem with init. But this is happening with the install so not able to address that. No apparent md5chksum for LiveCDs. No mention of this problem in installation help guide. Does anyone know how to deal with this? If you need more info, I will provide. Though it seems this is not an unusual problem when booting an installed system, there's no mention of it happening during installation.

General :: "x" Respawning Too Fast: Disabled For 5 Minutes?
I have spent some time reviewing the numerous posts that have this error. However, several of the other posts seem to be able to get a step farther than I can.While booting, the machine produces the following error:"INIT: ID "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes"Other thread posts have described being to type ctrl+c to login. However, I get hung up when I attempt to login as root:"Penguin login: root

Ubuntu :: Processes Keep Respawning - Nautilus Will Not Work?
Just installed 10.04. I tried to put a trash bin on my desktop, and it completely borked my system.

I did a ctrl-F2, gconf-editor, app->nautilus->desktop, and checked trashbin visible.

After that icons kept spawning in my panel. Nautilus will start. I lost all of the icons from my desktop. I have logging out, and resetting the trashbin visibility. Nothing seems to fix the problem.

Ubuntu :: Kill Java And Prevent It From Respawning?
I run Freenet occasionally, but not all the time. Freenet doesn't run unless told to, but Java loads on every boot and sits there and hogs resources for no reason whatsoever. What's worse, as soon as I kill it with fire (sudo kill -9 "PID"), it respawns within seconds. How do I make Java not load unless required? And die and stay dead when I want it dead?

General :: `mencoder` Captures 10 Minutes Of Audio In Less Than 10 Minutes?
I'm using mencoder to capture audio from a Encore ENLTV-FM3 video capture device. I have recently noticed that, since one week ago, when the machine was forcibly restarted due to a power outage, all recordings are slightly pitched, they play back slower than they should.

I narrowed down the problem to the following command line:

$ time mencoder -really-quiet -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video1:chanlist=us-cable:audiorate=32000:alsa:adevice=hw.1:input=0:amode=1:normid=11 -endpos 00:10:00 -ovc copy -oac pcm -of rawaudio -o test-32000.wav tv://69
real 9m54.886s
user 0m5.536s
sys 0m1.740s
$ ls -l test-32000.wav
-rw-r--r--@ 1 martin martin 76800000 Mar 15 17:20 test-32000.wav

Somehow, mencode managed to gather precisely 10 minutes worth of raw audio in 9m 55s. That's not physically possible, unless the capture device's A/D converters are "overclocked". I can't think of any other explanation besides hardware failure. Can that be? Could it be that something got burnt during the power outage and now the capture device's internal clock went nuts?

Since the machine's restart, I've also noticed dmesg is flooded with entries like this:

CE: hpet increased min_delta_ns to XXX nsec

Which seem to indicate that the computer's high precision event timer is somehow out of sync. Does this have to do with the audio issue? Can it be that the audio converter's sample rate is linked to the HPET? I'm totally lost here. Has anyone bumped into something similar?

Ubuntu :: Computer Seemed To Be Frozen - Reboot - No Init Found. Try Passing Init - Bootarg"
I've been dual booting 10.10 with Windows7 for about a month. Today is the first time I've encountered a serious problem.

This morning, nothing functioned properly after trying to open several programs. The computer seemed to be "frozen", although the mouse was working fine.

I decided to reboot, but then encountered an even bigger problem.

It failed to boot and got this message: no init found. try passing init= bootarg

The problem now is that it requires a Live CD session and I keep getting this: GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0)

In case it matters, I didn't install 10.10 from an ISO, I just upgraded from 10.04.

Ubuntu :: Error - No Init Found - Try Passing Init=bootarg
Ubuntu 9.10 will not boot! System froze this morning, I restarted and it is now failing to boot. Starts loading grub and I get this message:

mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/04aa3697-7bc0-45b5-b86a-77a1e6534bd5 on /root failed: invalid argument
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: no such file or directory
mount: mounting /dev on /root/sys failed: no such file or directory


I booted with 9.04 LiveCD discovered the drive could not be mounted-ran fsck -ln and it told me the drive has no valid partition table. I have had intermittent problems mounting flash drives before this, so I'm kind of worried it might be a hardware issue.Also have files on that drive I would rather not lose, so reinstalling is hopefully a last resort.

General :: Kernel Panic - Not Syncing - No Init Found - Try Passing Init - Option To Kernel
Im am building a Linux distro. It will be very tiny and fast.

I only have a minimal linuxkernel (bzImage) who is 1,2 mb big. And then I have Busybox who is 174,6 kb big.

The commands in busybox is: cd, ls, mkdir, rmdir, wget, httpd, clear, rm, poweroff, halt, reboot, fdisk, mount, umount, free, and cp.

When I compiled the kernel i use initramfs/initrd function and point it to a folder where initrd/initramfs source is.

The kernel works OK with others initramfs/initrd files. But not with my own.


Here is how the end of the kernelcomplie look like.


Here is my init file who is the initrd/initramfs source.


The initramfs folder contains "bin" (folder) and "init" a file. No more.

The problem is that the kernel cannot find/read init file.

Ubuntu :: Wont Boot - "no Init Found. Try Passing Init=bootarg"
While I was using my computer a few days ago, the terminal stopped working properly, so I tried to reboot, and when it started up again it wouldn't boot and said "no init found. try passing init=bootarg"

This has happened twice before, so I really need to figure out what keeps happening, otherwise I can't continue to use linux. i reinstalled both times before. i think that this is caused by a process that prevents me from using the hard drive, because when I try to check the disk in the terminal or in gparted, it says Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1. Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?

Also, in the disk utility, in the lower right corner of the filesystem it has a spinning "loading wheel".(i'm not sure if that means anything)

I am using ubuntu 10.10, but am not sure what kernel I am using, but i tried a few different kernel options(there's three of them at start up). safe mode does not work either.

Ubuntu :: Graphical Way To Set Up Ssh And Fast?
My older brother is switching to Linux and I wanted to set up ssh with him but a graphical but because he is new he needs a graphical way. I was going to download updates and everything he needs from here but I need a way so he can set up ssh and I can do the command line stuff.

Programming :: Fast File Search With C++
In an application written in C++ I have to compare output with data stored in a file. The search should return a positive ID whenever a complete string is found or a part of it. Is there a way to access such text/data files with C++ in a very fast way, i.e. the "pattern" search and file access (on a HDD)?The file is too large to completely preload in RAM, as the programme requires quite some memory for computations.
