Ubuntu Security :: System Monitor Shows Cryptkeeper Running?

Feb 14, 2010

My wife was using cryptkeeper fine, then she right-clicked the keys on the panel and did something, I'm not sure what. Anyway, the keys you click on to open the encrypted folder are gone and I can't figure out how to get them back. System monitor shows cryptkeeper running. I can kill it and re-start it, but the keys don't show on the panel. I'm running ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Constantly Running On The Background?

I'm running Ultimate Edition 2.0 64bit. When I'm running Firefox and I'm not doing anything on it it starts to use the disk intensively. I checked on terminal using the top command and it IS Firefox using up to 85-90% of the resources. Anyone know what the problem is here? Can it be hacked? I already uninstalled and installed back again and it still doing it.

Ubuntu :: Disk Drive Running Constantly?

Apr 15, 2010

System:
Ubuntu 9.10
Gateway SX2802 (Core 2 Quad)
4GB RAM
750GB drive

Everything was fine for the first 6 months. Now in the past couple weeks, my disk drive is running nearly constantly. I can hear it rattling away in the background no matter what I am doing. Typically, I just have Firefox open, and that disk drive is sounding like it's writing the whole thing over and over.

I've opened the system monitor and looked for something obvious, but everything says, "sleeping". The computer seems to operate fine - no crashes, no odd behavior. What's this thing doing?

Slackware :: Custom Kernel And Acpi / Thermal Settings - Fan Running Constantly

Jun 5, 2010

this isn't so much slackware specific as it is general linux related, but using the default huge slackware kernel included with 13.1, acpi reports cpu temps of about 55 celsius i always like to run my own kernels though, and using the latest stable kernel, i have compiled one using what i believe is necessary for my hardware, and everything works as expected except that acpi reports my cpu temp as 80 celsius at idle, causing my fan to be running constantly

so without simply using the generic config included with slack in the newer kernel, what do you think might be causing the thermal issues? i used diff on the two configs and the output is over 5,000 lines, so thats not a huge help, and im really not even sure what to be looking for the cpu is an intel i7 720qm, so if anyone might know any specific settings for that processor type needed for acpi to interface with it properly that would be much obliged here is my config for potential review: [URL] also, if i disable acpi entirely, the fan operates as normal but i cannot get readings obviously

Ubuntu :: System Constantly Overheat / Why Is So - Fix It?

Apr 6, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu from scratch several times since this problem started in Ubuntu 9*. It happens over and over again, and nothing seems to help.
My grasphic card is Nvidia 8500 GT. No matter what I try, to use no hardware drivers or use the recommended driver for Ubuntu my system shuts down without warning. I have used Ubuntu since 2004 and this is the worst bug I have ever experienced!
Is there a way to get rid of this thermal awareness program? Everything functioned fine until this stupid heat problem occurred. I want to turn it off but not to leave Ubuntu.
Lasdt night I was busy installing WinXP when my computer suddenly turned off, and Ubuntu could not be started again. Only show a screen with black and white parts and no desktop. Thats why I had to install Ubuntu again, and it turned off today while I use Firefox. Its the worst bug I have ever experienced.

Red Hat :: Running IPmonitor To Monitor The Disk Usage On Our Servers - Running Df -h

Mar 19, 2010

We are running IPmonitor to monitor the disk usage on our Linux servers. It does not seem to coincide with what is reported when running df -h. For example on a Red Hat 5.3 server - our IPmonitor shows that 85% is used on the /usr partition, however when I do a df -h on the server it shows that 91% is used. Why there would be a discrepancy? IPmonitor uses SNMP.

Fedora :: Upgraded To FC14 From FC12 - System Fan Blows Full Speed Constantly?

Dec 31, 2010

I upgraded from FC12 to FC14 and now the system/case fan blows full speed constantly. I also moved from i386-PAE to am64.

The CPUs are cool, the machine is basically idle, and the fan noise is really annoying (and blowing cool air).

In FC12 the fan would auto-adjust with CPU load. This is not the case now.

I ran sensors-detect and it doesn't seem to find my fans:

[root@pangea modprobe.d]# sensors

acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +40.0C (crit = +75.0�C)
k8temp-pci-00c3
Adapter: PCI adapter
code....

I don't remember ever having to even run sensors-detect in FC12. I searched the board for a bit and didn't see any solutions. I'll attach the full output from sensors-detect.

Ubuntu :: Disable Compiz On One Monitor In A Two Monitor System

Feb 23, 2010

I have persistent video tearing my second monitor (Mitsubushi HDTV). I have tried everything that was suggested with some improvement. I have no issue with tearing if I add the following to my xorg.conf

Quote:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

Is it possible to disable composite for one monitor only and keep it for the other. Or at lease is it possible to have compiz for one monitor only and disable it for the other.

Ubuntu :: Incorrect File System Space Reported By System Monitor?

Apr 3, 2011

In System Monitor, on the File Systems tab, the "Total", "Available" and "Used" columns don't seem to add up, and the "Used" percentage doesn't seem correct either.

My config:
/dev/sda1 = 80 GB SSD drive, / partition.
/dev/sdb1 = 50 GB FAT32 partition of an external 500 GB USB hard disk.
/dev/sdb2 = remainder of the 500 GB USB hard disk encrypted using luks.

Screenshot: The /dev/sda1 figures don't really add up well, but they're close at least (how you get "50% Used" from any of those figures I don't know!).

However, for /dev/sdb2, they're miles off:
"Free" = 146.2 GiB
"Total" = 409.7 GiB
"Available" = 125.4 GiB
"Used" = 263.5 GiB

Ubuntu :: 9.04 - Running Second Monitor In Own X Screen

May 8, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 (almost ready to upgrade to 10.04) with a geforce 8800 and as of a few days ago an additional monitor (of a different rez, natch). What I'm trying to do is run the second monitor in it's own X screen. It seems to function; I can run the mouse seamlessly off one screen to another and I can move files from one screen to another and back. The problem is that all I can see on the second monitor is the mouse cursor.

It appears that compiz is running cube fine, as far as watching the cursor disappear momentarily as I roll desktops. It flashes active several times while getting the desktop together on boot (this is particularly mean-spirited IMHO) then goes black. I can even see files I've dropped there when it's flashing me. It's there, I swear it, and X server is running screen 0 flawlessly. How can I turn the light on in X server screen 1?

Ubuntu :: Internal Disk In A Running System Usb-booted System Does Not Result In The System Detecting The Disk

Feb 27, 2011

My system decided to crash on me, hard. It was humming along happily for about 2 months and now doesn't boot. If I boot from hard-disk, I get grub. Launching the first kernel choice hangs. I thought maybe the install was corrupt, so I booted from usb install disk. The usb hdd didn't boot; something about an error trying to access /dev/sda . Unplugging the internal disk and plugging in the usb install disk does result in the system booting. Plugging in the internal disk in a running system usb-booted system does not result in the system detecting the disk.

How do I know if the disk is physically broken? This seems unlikely since it does manage to launch grub consistently. Or is this still possible? How can I try to mount whatever is left? The usb install disk doesn't even list the /dev/sd*. Any pointers on how to reformat the drive if it's not being mounted?

Ubuntu :: System Crashing 10.04 \ Running Again Is To Press The On/off Button Until The System Powers Off And Restart?

Sep 6, 2010

I am an absolutely beginner with Linux (ubuntu). I got fed up with widows and decided it was time to go. I installed (clean install from a cd) ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. It is an hp compaq d220 MT.It looks good and feels good, well at least for a while since it keeps crashing. The screen starts to flicker, goes black, and the only way to get it up and running again is to press the on/off button until the system powers off and restart.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Connect An External Monitor To Laptop Running 10.04?

May 13, 2010

I've been unable to connect an external monitor to my laptop running 10.04, even though the resolution and framerate are right. The monitor says something like "unsupported video settings".

In other news, I put the live cd into another computer which relies on a monitor and after the very first screen with the two logos at the bottom, the monitor decides to go to sleep. I try with another monitor and it just seems to have to feed. This is the more important problem, but I wonder if there isn't some built-in problem with 10.04.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Laptop Monitor Running With 61hz Instead Of 60hz When Activating KMS?

Jul 4, 2010

today i was trying to activate KMS by adding:

Code:
radeon.modeset=1
to grub.

it worked fine, and fixed the black-box bug in cairo-dock, and i finally had a nice graphic bootscreen again.

but another bug occured: im running dual-screen setup, my notebook is connected via vga to a dell 22 inch widescreen TFT.

by default both screens running with 60hz and no problem.

now, after activating KMS it happend that, while the dell monitor still ran 60hz, the notebook screen was running with 61hz! it was shown in the monitor-options.
the notebook monitor was therefore flickering a bit for 5 seconds, than running fine for another few seconds. then flickering again. (obviously, as 61hz is too much when it should run with 60hz!)

so my question is: how can i activate KMS again and have both of my screens running with 60hz again? is there an option?

Slackware :: Dual Screen - Disable The Second Monitor When X Is Not Running?

Sep 11, 2010

I would like to use my second monitor with my Slackware (Laptop) setup but they are different sizes/resolutions.

This is no problem with KDE but before X is started and when X ends there are big issues with the TTY0 console being distorted.

Is it possible to disable the second monitor when X is not running?

(Slackware64Current, ATI Mobility Radeon HD3200 card)

I essentially want the second monitor to activate ONLY in the event of an X Session and turn off when X halts.
