Oct 31, 2010

Running Ubuntu Server 10.04 32 bit. Sometimes when I reboot it does not start up, It seems to be going through the boot process but then just hangs. I have had a look at the log files and can't see anything, but I'm not really sure what I am looking for.

Ubuntu Servers :: Process Hangs While Cleaning Cache?

Dec 7, 2010

I have a NFS server and I'm periodically cleaning the cache by using the following lines:


/bin/sync; /bin/echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
/bin/sync; /bin/echo 2 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

during the last days the cleaning process gets stucked at '/bin/echo 2', here's the process data:


27426 root 20 0 5488 704 576 R 100 0.0 896:06.34 /bin/echo 2

the process keeps running, so I find this more strange since it's not in zombie or D state.

Fedora Installation :: F12 64 Bit - Starts The Boot Process And Then It Hangs

Dec 28, 2009

I'm attempting to install F12 64 bit. I currently have F10 running on this system. I'd like to do a clean install. I'm using the DVD. I boot the computer with the DVD in. I choose the first option (Install or upgrade). It starts the boot process and then it hangs. [URL]

After asking at #Fedora I was given the advice to boot with `intel_iommu=off`. That gets me slightly further in the process. It gets to the point where anaconda is starting. Then all heck breaks loose. It appears the monitor loses the signal from the computer (power light turns red just like if the computer was off). The caps lock and the scroll lock lights on the keyboard blink about once a second. The DVD drive continues to spin for about a minute and then stops. Since I have no display, I have no idea what's going on.

Ubuntu Installation :: PXE Server Diskless Setup - Boot Process Hangs

Jun 24, 2010

I have a PXE server which installed DHCP TFTP AND NFS service. and set them up followed by [URL].

The boot process hanged here:
ipconfig: eth0: SIOCGIFUNDEX: No such device
ipconfig: no devices to configure
[-n eho]
. /tmp/net-eth0.conf
/init: line 3: can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf

What I did try to work around is,
1. Set portfast to all the ports connected the PXE server and client.
2. Edit pxelinux.cfg/default, try different setting in "ip=" (I did not find any menu in the internet which explain to to configure this file).

Fedora :: Microcode - Boot Process Hangs At Startx Time

Sep 4, 2010

Ever since the kernel update to, my boot process hangs at about startx time. I boot cleanly at runlevel 3 in either this or the previous kernel. If I execute startx from here (in either kernel), the system hangs at the same place. During the early troubleshooting, I read in another thread (250929) about installing xorg-x11-drv-catalyst, which I did using yum. This led to the failure of the 2.6.33 kernel; yum remove did not fix this. I have carefully followed the instructions in the fglrx HOWTO (updated a week ago by Hlingler) as they relate to a PAE kernel (including reinstalling mesa-libGL), and that fixed earlier difficulties. Hence, I felt I needed a new thread.

dmesg tells me
microcode: CPU0: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
piix4_smbus 0000:00:14.0: SMBus Host Controller at 0xb00, revision 0
microcode: CPU1: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.00 .....

But the program itself reports
# microcode_ctl -h
This program is for updating the microcode on Intel processors belonging to the IA32 family - PentiumPro upwards (x86-64 included). It depends on the Linux kernel driver. The website urbanmyth.org/microcode (mentioned by yum info microcode_ctl) clearly indicates that Intel has taken over this microcodecode distribution, and suggests that it is no longer valid for AMD processors.

I found a reference to a kernel configuration flag CONFIG_MICROCODE_AMD (as a plausible subsititute for CONFIG_MICROCODE_INTEL) that possibly belongs in a script in /etc/init.d - but the above context leads me to suspect this is not true any more. In any event, those flags are not mentioned anywhere in my init.d scripts - in fact nowhere in the entire /etc tree. My microcode file exists, and is dated March 23. How do I get it installed? Or is this completely unrelated to my hanging boot problem, as suggested by the "platform microcode" line in the dmesg output? If so, where should I be looking?

Slackware :: Boot Process Hangs At Audio Driver - No Sound / Get It?

Jul 13, 2010

When my system boots it hangs at


and hangs for another 120 seconds. In X11 I have no sound at all even after running alsaconf with no errors. My sound works perfectly in Ubuntu, so it's not a hardware problem. Are the two problems related or are they two separate things? Any help here would be hot.

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Use Start-stop-daemon To Execute Process

Sep 27, 2010

I've just installed subversion.I need to create a script /etc/init.d/svnserve that will start at boot time.I want to use start-stop-daemon --start so I can track my process and eventually kill it using start-stop-daemon --stop.My problem is that I can't get it to work and the documentation shows no exemple.

I've replaced $DAEMON by the whole line: svnserve -d -R -r $REPO_ROOT and got -d is not an option.I'm not quite sure what to do at that point. If someone has some experience with start-stop-daemon it would be great.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot From USB Connected External Hard Take Long Time From Loading INITRD Image To Start Boot Process?

Jul 18, 2011

I have installed "open-SUSE 11.4" on a "500GB Free Agent External Hard Drive". I didn't have any problem in booting since last week that I booted it from my laptop. Also I did it before several times from then when I try to boot it e.g. from an "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz" PC the time between loading INITRD and starting boot sequence messages lasts nearly 30 minutes!(i didn't actually measure it but it take a long time in the same order). after starting boot sequence which is showed on monitor everything looks normal. e.g copy of files would be done by speeds between 2MB/s to 30 MB/s depending on the targets.I used to use the external hard derive to boot from different laptops and PC's from start but I didn't have such a problem anytime.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Hangs On Boot - Start With Older Kernel Works?

Sep 1, 2011

I've recently upgraded to Natty (11.04).The problem that is now occurring, and reoccurring, is like this:- Computer boots, but hangs on a purple screen (nothing on it). Nothing happens, after 15 minutes or so I give up waiting and hard reset.- Boot via Grub (holding shift) into recovery-mode: works fine, but I want the GUI, so I reboot.- After reboot the system hangs again, as mentioned before.- Hard reset again, and booting a previous kernel ( ): works fine!- Restart again, boots in most recent kernel ( works fine now.- Try to shutdown/restart again, problem re-occurs every time. So I use the workaround with the extra startup with the older kernel again.and finally typing this.

Servers :: Ubuntu Hangs On Boot / What To Do?

Jan 5, 2010

Ubuntu server hangs when I boot with a wired Ethernet connection. The last thing I see in the console is code...

I have no problem when I boot to a Wifi connection even when Samba and openssh-server are installed. I see the same sequence of lines in the console as I reported initially (including Reloading, Restarting), but then the output continues with

* Starting the Winbind daemon winbind

Both the wired and wireless connections use dhcp. Obviously, I installed the OS using a wired connection, so it worked reliably once. I'm stuck.

P.S. I tried dhclient -r before rebooting. The machine did not shut down correctly and when I forced a reboot it appeared to hang at the usual place. However, after a long delay it proceeded to boot. Perhaps I am observing a delay due to a very long timeout. I will try another reboot now and check again in the morning.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server (no GUI) Hangs On Boot

Apr 30, 2010

I just installed 10.04 i386 Server(release version)last night on an older IBM workstation (sorry, for the life of me can't remember model and I'm at work now); P4 2.4, 512Mb RAM, generic Intel graphics. This was a base install (aside from OpenSSH) with no window mgr. The HDD was wiped during the install and GRUB2 wrote to the MBR.

The install went smoothly, and on the soft reboot after the install I got a shell and was able to login, etc. and even SSH in.I unplugged the machine, moved it, booted, and got a cursor in the upper-left of the screen for about 3 seconds, and then the monitor would enter power save mode. (I tried 2 different models of monitor). While the cursor was on the screen the HDD access LED was blinking with activity, but that would stop right before the screen would enter standby. Tried a few reboots with the same result.

I'm thinking this is not a video driver issue (as similar threads have suggested),because the splash screen for the install disc renders properly and on the first successful boot the shell rendered appropriately at a high resolution.I can hold down shift to enter the GRUB2 menu, which also renders at a higher-than-text resolution and is defaulted / displays the correct options.

Most other threads with a similar yet non-video issue centered around GRUB2 issues with a dual-boot machine, which mine is not.I did go in via rescue mode (off the install CD -- the rescue option of the GRUB menu has the same result as a standard boot), and checked that my grub.cfg was correct, and I ran grub-install to no avail, and also ran grub-mkconfig on a subsequent boot to no avail, yet the grub.cfg generated appeared identical to the original generated during install.

The partition/file system is default layout.

20 Gb IDE (/dev/sda)
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2
/dev/sda2 Ext


I'd be happy to give more info if someone has a troubleshooting direction in which to go.

Ubuntu Servers :: Server Hangs On Boot

Jul 27, 2010

I'm trying to track down a problem with my server. Basically, I can get it to boot with a LiveCD and do rescue stuff with it - I just can no longer get it to boot. I've been slowly working my way through all of the error messages that come up during the boot process, and knocking them off one by one. Right now, they're fairly minor.

I'm trying to find out what the big issue is by looking at the logs. The last thing that it does is bring up apache2, says [OK] and then hangs. I've tried to do ls -lustR on /var/log to see what's the last log touched, and that's syslog or boot.log, but the last entry says something along the lines of Apache2 is up and running.

Where else should I look?

Ubuntu Servers :: MySQL Does Not Start On Boot

May 11, 2010

Ubuntu server 10.04 comes with a new event based startup system, and I wonder if that can be responsible for this problem. The server has been upgraded from 9.10. On reboot mysql does not always manage to start... /var/log/mysql/error.log has info similar to this:

100511 19:05:00 [ERROR] Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Cannot assign requested address
100511 19:05:00 [ERROR] Do you already have another mysqld server running on port: 3306 ?
100511 19:05:00 [ERROR] Aborting

So apparently port 3306 is not 100% unused when mysql tries to open it or somehow network connections are not ready, even if mysql start is supposed to wait for 'net-device-up' and 'local-filesystems' according to /etc/init/mysql.conf. This does not happen on all reboots. I am supposed to be able to start it manually with command 'start mysql' but that does not seem to work also. When I try start it again, it says mysql is running but no databases can be reached and mysqld is not active, reboot and good luck is all that helps...

As far as I know there are no firewalls installed, at least none I have manually configured and it has worked with no problems on 9.10. So this new upstart thing seems responsible. It simply does not let mysql wait until it can start in good way. That also explains why it's a random problem. If all starts happen when and if there is free processor time, it does not always start things in the same order on every reboot. The key here is port 3306, or whatever port mysql is configured to use. The upstart system simply needs delay the start until the port is 100% free and available for the system to use.

Ubuntu Servers :: Start Liferay At Boot?

Aug 20, 2010

I know Ubuntu has changed the startup system in 10.04 and I am wondering how to go about starting my liferay server at boot (instead of starting manually).

There's already a startup script, can I setup a symlink to somewhere to have it start automatically?

I've tried searching through documentation and google but most of it applies to older versions of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Servers :: Xampp Will Not Start On Boot?

Sep 29, 2010

I have recently set up my web server using the LAMPP package for Ubuntu. Now I'm running Ubuntu Server 10 so my machine boots into the console and not gdm. Also I have my machine autologin as root so I can simply turn my server on and not mess around with logins. Now I created a simple shellscript for starting lampp and then I put it into etc/init.d/, chmod -x file.sh to give it executable permissions, then I update-rc.d file.sh defaults but nothing happens on startup. It simple takes me to the console and nothing more happens. I have to manually start lampp on every bootup.

Ubuntu Servers :: Start MySQL Before Jabber On Boot

May 3, 2010

Currently when the system boots, It boots jabberd2 before mysql. So jabber fails. Then, later mysql is loaded. I either want to force jabber to load mysql first, or make the system boot mysql first. I've tried changing /etc/init.d/jabberd2 to say "# Required-Start:
mysql $network $named $remote_fs"...
However, insserv says that mysql service has to be enabled... so I assume that's an issue because mysql is an upstart script.

Ubuntu Servers :: Tomcat 6 Won't Start At Boot But Otherwise All Is Normal

Nov 18, 2010

I'm having some trouble with Tomcat 6 after upgrading to 10.10. During the upgrade process, the installer hung while dealing with Tomcat 6, which required me to kill the upgrade and do some clean up, and then re-run `apt-get upgrade` again to get things going. This left some weirdness (like the MOTD for both 10.10 and 10.04 being shown on login), but otherwise things are OK. The only remaining problem I have is Tomcat; it simply won't start when the server is booted. The information I have:

Tomcat 6 runs normally when started with `sudo /etc/init.d/tomcat6 start`. No errors are thrown, everything works as expected.I used `rcconf` to try removing and reinstalling the rc scripts, this didn't help. I manually deleted all the rc scripts, then used `rcconf` again. The scripts all seem symlinked correctly to `/etc/init.d/tomcat6`, but it's just not coming up on boot. I ran `sudo grep "tomcat" /var/log/*.log` to see if something is appearing in the logs, but nothing of interest is there.

How can I verify that Ubuntu is even trying to start Tomcat? As this is a development box, I am not adverse to a quick + dirty solution if there's some either simple way of getting it started at boot. I'm thinking the next Ubuntu release will see me blow away the server and start it fresh, but right now I'd just like a working box

Ubuntu Servers :: Start Dropbox Daemon At Boot On 10.04?

Dec 19, 2010

I am having some trouble making the dropbox daemon start at boot. I followed these instructions -> [URL], which are basically a replica of the original instructions from the Dropbox Wiki [URL]. The installation went fine, except that the machine still cannot start the daemon at boot. I tried to modify the init.d script a bit (see the attachment), but it still wont work (I am not sure if my changes made any significant difference, though). The daemon will only start if I invoke it manually after login with the command:


[user@machine:~]$ service dropbox start

Which executes the daemon just fine. I also tried adding this line of code to crontab:


@reboot /etc/init.d/dropbox start

This command starts the daemon if I check with the command "service dropbox status", but if I execute the official dropbox CLI command:


~/bin/dropbox.py status

it says that Dropbox isn't running and I still have to execute it manually.

P.s.: The machine runs Ubuntu Server 10.04, with all the latest system patches and updates.
