Ubuntu :: Stop The Xsession Reporting Errors

Apr 13, 2010

I delete the file and within about a week i am back to a "out of space error" I have tried root owning the file with no permission to write, but it still gets written, just with a number on the end

the system appears to be working fine otherwise. I could set a cron remove but that seems a bit more hacky than telling it to shut up.

Ubuntu :: .xsession-errors Is Filling Up Fast

Feb 18, 2011

Just today I started getting notices about lack of disk space on my system. After much digging I found that .xsession-errors and .xsession-errors.old were taking nearly 70GB of space combined. The primary message I'm getting over and over again is: SSL_Write: I/O Error I have been unable to figure out what's causing this error.

Ubuntu :: Xsession-errors - Failed To Load .compiz

May 5, 2010

I have had a few X crashes and started to suspect compiz as they usually happened when I was resizing a window or the window was wobbling.

Here is the Xsession-errors log (it's a hidden file in your home folder). It mentions:

WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!

Slackware :: Doesn't Start..xsession.errors Claim It Can't Open Display?

Jan 8, 2010

with slackware 13.0 for one user xfce4 hangs and doesn't start..xsession.errors claim it can't open display. It works fine for other users. Also if I access the machine in question as the same user but remotely using remote X (X-terminal on my LAN) it works fine.Sometimes if I wait and count to 30 it comes up but a lot of the features don't work.During the last week have posted this question on the compuserve linux forum and also in the xfce site forum with no solutions.seems there must be something in that user's directory which is hanging it up. I keep the same /home/users directory on a separate partition so when I upgrade for new versions of slackware the /home/users remain the same - I symlink home to that partition so upgrades are somewhat seemless.

Fedora :: Safe Way To Disable Xsession Error Log File?

Mar 26, 2009

I noticed the xsession-error file in my main user's home folder grow up to a big size, it's usually at 2-3MB sometimes up to 20MB. I use Fedora 10 64bit and KDE4.2. I got no problems at all and the xsession-error logfile is full of weird entrys, almost everything is reporting to it, mplayer, xine, opera, firefox, dolphin and many other software I use. I don't think the most of these entrys are real and critical system errors, especially all the mplayer stuff. However, I'm not worried about the file size since Fedora 10 seems to delete the file on every log in.

My problem is the disc access because all this never ending writings to hard disc kinda break things like the mount options noatime, nodiratime. I read something about you can redirect the logfile to /dev/null but that was for an ubunto distribution and I would like to get a how to for a save way to disable the xsession-error logfile, I got 8GB RAM so everything is in cache anyway after a long session, I really want to get rid of unnessesary hard disc access like that. If not recommend to disable it, can I direct it to an usb stick or ssd?

General :: Creating XSession File Makes StartX Go Black

May 28, 2011

I want to put:
xmodmap -e "pointer =3 2 1"
somewhere in the startup. It seems creating an .xsession is the solution. But after I create a .xsession file in my home folder, the next time I run startx the screen just turns black. (And only for a short while can I switch to another virtual terminal, before that too becomes impossible). After deleting the file it runs OK again. I'm not using any login/desktop manager. I use IceWM on Debian Squeeze. Is there some script/import that has to be present in the .xsession file, or is something else going on? Also I'd like to know what I should do when I get a black screen. Turning off the PC is such a crude method

Ubuntu :: Laptop Refuses To Boot From HDD - Error 15: File Not Found

Jan 20, 2011

When I boot my computer (emachines E528 laptop), it gets to the BIOS loading screen (the one where you have the option to press a function key to get to the BIOS settings), then it goes to a black screen and looks like it is going to load GRUB, but instead of loading GRUB, the computer reboots. It does this endlessly, unless I insert a LiveCD. So, it's not the BIOS. That's good. When the Mint GUI (Linux Mint was the LiveCD I was originally using as I just happened to have it on hand) loaded for the first time, I checked all of the hard drive partitions and they all seemed to load fine. So, it's not a mechanical problem with the HDD. That's good.

At this point, I figured the MBR had become corrupted somehow. Now I wasn't really sure exactly where the MBR was, or how it all worked, but I was pretty sure that if I just reinstalled GRUB, everything would be hunky dorey. Unfortunately, I hit a road block when trying to install GRUB. That's not good. I am trying to follow the instructions in this thread, but I get the following error:


grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
Error 15: File not found

So then I tried following the instructions here, but I don't know how to tell which drive is sda1, sda2, etc. I'm guessing there's some terminal command to figure it out, but I don't know it and Google was less than helpful. I feel like something that basic should be easy to find, but I digress.i am getting very close to backing up everything and reinstalling everything. Only problem with that is that I am not sure how to access the files on my Ubuntu partition as they are encrypted (I wrote down the key when I started it up, I just don't know how to bring up a prompt that will let me enter the key). I really don't want to reinstall and set everything back up, but if I have to I will. how to tell which partition is associated with which sda#, or how to access the files in my encrypted Ubuntu home folder. How do I tell which partition is associated to which sda#? How do I open my encrypted home folder from my Ubuntu partition?

Fedora :: 14: Boot Time Error Opening ATTR No Such File Or Directory?

Jan 22, 2011

After boot, Fedora 14 gives the following message, on my HP Pavilion dv2701tx laptop.

Starting udev: udevd-work[454]: error opening ATTR{/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.1/usb4/4-1/4-1:1.0/power/level} for writing: No such file or directory

I suspect it has something to do with my Authentec AES2501 fingerprint reader. I need it to work for my project, but it's not working, even though it works fine in the Windows 7 installed on my system.

Debian Installation :: Errors On Boot: "fsck.ext2: No Such File"?

Jan 19, 2011

I've installed Debian Lenny from USB with the small 8MB netboot image. I only chose "Standard system" in Tasksel during install, to get a clean, minimal install. I also chose for LVM and a separate partition for /home. I have one 1.5TB SATA drive in this machine.

Now everything seems to install just fine, but when I reboot I get the following error:

fsck.ext2: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sdb1

I get offered to enter a maintenance shell, or press CTRL-D to resume booting. When I do, the system boots fine and nothing seems wrong. But it is inconvenient, because I can't reboot the machine without physically going to it to press CTRL-D on the keyboard

I have googled for this error and it is mentioned on several forums, but they were all related to other things specific to their installs/machines.

(ps. the only slightly strange thing during install is that the Debian installer included my 1GB USB thumbdrive when it shows all the drives and the partitions before formatting. I removed the USB thumbdrive directly after install, but if I plug it in, I still get the error)

These are the errors during boot:

I've only installed Debian on my laptops, which never had any problems.

Ubuntu Installation :: 8.04 - 10.04 /dev/md0 Not Created During Boot?

Jul 8, 2010

After an upgrade from 8.04 -> 10.04 my system is unable to boot. After a lot of work it seems that the blocking problem is that /dev/md0 is not being created in initramfs so the volume group containing the / file system is not being activated and therefore the boot fails at that point. In /sbin both mdadm and lmv exist and the arrays and volume groups can be created manually using them. The system can then complete booting. Updating initramfs after booting has no apparent effect.

Based on posts I have found I have tried adding raid=noautodetect and rootdelay=240 to the GRUB kernel command line separately and together with no effect, except delaying the boot. It seems that udev is not running correctly so I began digging through the udev rules but don't really understand how it actually works.In /lib/udev/rules I found;


If I were guessing (and I am) I would expect 85_lvm2 to be run before 85_mdadm, which is the wrong order. I also found 56_lvm.rules which doesn't seem to do anything. I would appreciate pointers of testing these rules to see what the problem is. It seems all of the pieces are there for this to wok correctly but there is something missing. How can I run or test a single rule? Which udevadm options test these rules,

Ubuntu :: Open Exact Pdf File That Was Created By .tex?

Dec 20, 2010

I wrote a very simple script to compile a Tex document and open the resulting PDF output file. The problem I have is that every now and then there are multiple PDF files in the same directory. For example if I have a file called test.tex I run my script and it compiles the test.tex and creates a file called test.pdf If there are only one tex and pdf file in this folder there is no problem. If there is also a 1.pdf in this folder the test.tex will compile and 1.pdf will open.

My question is: is there a way to open the exact pdf file that was created by the .tex file?

My script file is this:

pdflatex *.tex
gnome-open *.pdf
