Ubuntu :: Cron Runs Shell Script - But Only First Line Of It?

May 18, 2010

I have a cron job that runs a shell script. But it only runs the first line of that shell script and not the rest of the file. I'm a little stumped as to why. If I run the shell script manually, it runs and executes every single line as it should. I think I must need some additional syntax to make this run correctly?

Here is the crontab ...

root@kchlinux:~/macs# crontab -l
# m h dom mon dow command

Ubuntu :: Script Fails In Cron But Runs Fine In Regular Shell?

Jul 11, 2011

I have an Ubuntu server running Couch Potato, Sick Beard and Sabnzbdplus. Everything "works" pretty well in a sense that CP and SB push the NZB's to Sabnzbdplus, but Sab crashes regularly (haven't found the solution or the cause for this problem, so if you have some advice regarding that, it's welcome).To counter this problem (Sab crashing) I have a script written which checks if Sab is runnning and if it isn't start it:

bart@Pyro:~$ cat CheckSabRunning.sh

General :: Ubuntu Runs At 50-60% CPU?

Jul 16, 2010

I installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron about six months ago, and it has gradually slowed down, and CPU utilization has crept up to the 50-60% range. The DEV folder contains a large number of similar files - TTY0 through TTYZF or PTYA0 through PTYZF. I suspect that something is not configured right, but, I don't know where to look.

I connect to the internet through a G4 Wireless Transceiver connected to my ethernet port on an IBM Think Center 8187.

Ubuntu :: AMD CPU Runs At Less Than Half Speed?

Jun 9, 2010

I have a machine currently running Debian Lenny on which I would like to run Ubuntu for the driver support in its newer kernel. However, I did a test boot from the installation CD and it appears to be running at less than half its rated speed. This is the output from the Debian kernel:

brendand@kant:~$ uname -a
Linux kant 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Wed May 12 18:03:14 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
brendand@kant:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor: 0


Maybe this is some sort of power save bug where the CPU speed is incorrectly scaled back. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Should I report it as a bug, and, if so, how do I do that?

Ubuntu :: Compiz No Longer Runs?

Jul 5, 2010

I have been running Lucid since it was in beta, and have never had any problems with Compiz. Now, all of a sudden it will not launch. If I try to run it from a terminal I get the following:

compiz (core) - Fatal: Software rendering detected.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Launching fallback window manager I am running an Intel 82915G/GV/910GL built in graphics controller, and when I run the compiz-check script everything checks out fine.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Fan Runs Continuously?

Nov 18, 2010

I have an IBM ThinkPad T43 on which I run Ubuntu 10.10. Everything works fairly smoothly except that I notice my laptop fan runs continuously. When I turn on the machine it revs up until boot-up is complete, then it shuts off for a few minutes, and then it comes back on and never turns off until I'm through working.Is this strictly a hardware problem, or is there something about Linux that causes the computer to run hot and so causes the fan to work hard? Is there a setting that I could check to see if the fan is working properly? I don't use any exotic programs or run video intensive games, so there's no reason why the computer should run especially hot

OpenSUSE :: CPU That Runs Always Very High?

Jan 25, 2010

I have a couple of problems (opensuse11.1):

1: CPU that runs always very high.

In the system monitor I have a number of unknown processes from user root,-1 that keep popping up (see yellow highlight in image1). What are they?

As you may see zombie processes are also coming and going... among which dns-resolver, ifup, ifdown, ifdown-route, netconfig, nis, ntp-config, udved, grep,
touch.... Is that normal??

The system load view in the monitor indicates 2 CPUs with different loads (see image2) when I have only one intelP4. What is this?

At the same time the output of command top seems more regular, except for the high cpu load, although I wouldn't be able to say what every processes is meant for.(image3)

Has anyone an explanation? Is it normal that most of these zombie processes seem network related?

2. Virus report from external server

I usually connect to a server via VPN (to access electronic journals) but recently the access has been denied to me because "my connection is infected with the worm Conficker".
I know it is very unlikely that a linux pc catches a virus.. so I am puzzeld... I have a dual boot with Windows (probably infected in some ways) but haven't used it for at least a year..

Ubuntu :: Compiz Only Runs If Start It Gradually ?

Feb 24, 2010

A botched ATI proprietary driver upgrade caused a cascade of problems. I've installed this driver many times before, but this time something just went wrong. I may have made a mistake. There don't seem to be many complaints about the ATI 10.2 driver so this seems likely. Anyway things were quite unstable for a while. I had problems with nautilus (lost the desktop) and segfaults from compiz. I had to reinstall a lot of stuff etc etc.

Anyway, this episode has left me with a strange lingering malaise. I can get the machine into a state where everything works perfectly - the cube is fine and quite snappy, the desktop is all there; it looks great; New driver seems to be working OK. But when I log out and log back in there are problems.

Step 1:If compiz is the window manager during login it dies killing the nautilus desktop and leaving me without a window manager running (no window decorations). This is a nasty state to be in because you can't easily get at a terminal (yeah ctl alt F1 - but how to fix the window manager from there). I've got a keyboard shortcut for metacity which lets me recover from this state. But afterwards I can't get the desktop back.

If metacity is the window manager during login - no problem. I've got a desktop. It starts up fine. Everything looks good. But I'm running metacity and I want to run compiz. So now we try to get compiz running.

Step 2: If I enter "compiz -- replace" in a terminal compiz segfaults and doesn't put metacity back leaving me without a window manager again. Just before it segfaults it complains about not finding some expected graphics files. This seems to have something to do with cube caps [Edit=Not - see later]- but I've restored defaults there so ... Fortunately ctrl C gets me out of that and back to metacity. Or I use my shortcut. But gee whiz no compiz.

OK - here is where it gets interesting. If I go to the compiz settings manager and disable the cube, then compiz --replace works just fine. So it looks like something specific to the cube. This lets me get compiz running but without the cube.

Now things get really interesting. Once compiz is running, if I open the compiz settings manager, then I can enable the cube and in fact ... it works!

To sum up, I now have to go through the following procedure every time I log in.

1. Login in with metacity as default window manager
2. Disable the cube in compiz settings manager
3. Start compiz with compiz --replace
4. Enable the cube in compiz settings manager.

After doing that everything works fine ... at least until I log out.

The fact that I can get everything to work indicates that I've got the driver installed OK and it is working. But why should I have to go through this bizarre procedure each time I log in?

1. The problem afflicts all users - so it probably isn't a user config file issue.
2. I've reinstalled compiz and a whole lot of xwindows stuff. Didn't help.
3. I will try downgrading the video driver to the previous version as a last resort. But if the problem is something I broke while things were messed up, downgrading the driver may not fix it.
4. I'll post the crash message compiz generates in a followup (I'll have to log out and back in to generate the crash so I can copy the message)

Ubuntu :: Cron Command: Runs From CLI, But Not Auto?

Mar 10, 2010

I have a script that is basically a series of rsync commands called bkup_all.sh. This script is located in the /root/ dir.From the command line (su'd as root), I can run the script like this:/root/bkup_all.sh > /var/log/bkup/bkup_$(date +%Y%m%d).logThis excecutes perfectly, and all the rsync adn script output is saved in a log file in the intended destination. However, I want this command to run automatically, so again, su'd as root I enter:crontab -ethen enter the following:00 02 * * * /root/bkup_all.sh > /var/log/bkup/bkup_$(date +%Y%m%d).logI want the script to run each night at 2:00am.But, the script does not run. There is no log file generated and I do not see anything in the syslog or system messages to indicate an error.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Jack Runs But No Sound?

Sep 4, 2010

Jack runs, but I can't get sound to play through it. Another thing that happens is when I launch jack, all audio in the system, whether its connected to jack or not, goes off. There are no errors or anything in the messages window. And I checked to see if it was connected to the correct interface. I have a mac mini and I run ppc lucid lynx. The system does detect my hardware, and its not muted. All I want to do is use MusE. Is there maybe anyway to run MusE without jack?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Does Trim Support Runs Automatically?

Nov 25, 2010

The situation with TRIM in Ubuntu has me utterly confused. I don't know whether I need to manually run it or not. Sources I've found are disparate and unclear. I have Ubuntu 10.04 with latest updates (including kernel 2.6.32-26). I have an Intel X-25M drive with latest firmware, and it is formatted as ext4. So, does TRIM support run automatically? If not, how do I check if I need to run it, and then how do I run it if necessary?

Ubuntu :: Curious: Make A .deb That Just Runs A Script?

Dec 13, 2010

I know, running a script is pretty easy itself, but some people (family, gf) just hate using the terminal and assisting them remotely, you have no idea what they are really doing on the other side of the screen. This way, they can essentially just double click and enter their password. I was curious. How can I easily create a .deb package for this script:

sudo apt-get install -y libnotify-bin
sudo apt-get purge -y firefox
sudo apt-get purge -y flashplugin-*
sudo apt-get purge -y adobe-flashplugin

Ubuntu :: Runs In Low Graphics Mode For Just One Session

May 5, 2011

The above subject was one of the options I was given on the boot up of Ubuntu 11.04 (natty) after the message 'Your screen graphics card and input device could not be detected correctly'

I OK'd the message to run in low graphics mode.

The question is: What's causing this? I've had a look through previous posts with (apparently) the same problem, but the methods used were inconclusive, even though in some cases the problem was resolved.

Nvidia was mentioned - about deleting all references to it in Packet manager. Would this work? And if so, why?

This was one of the lines of an LSPCI command in terminal...

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility U1

How can I get the graphics to run properly?

Ubuntu :: Which Command Runs When Change Something In A GUI Menu

May 13, 2011

I explain in with an example:

Imagine you want to know which command is carried out when, after executing gnome-mouse-properties, you go to the Touchpad tab and click on "Enable mouse clicks with touchpad".

Another example:

Imagine you want to know the command that is executed when, after running gnome-appearance-properties, you go to the "Visual Effects" tab and click on None.

I've had a look via gnome-system-log in all the log files of the left with no success. Perhaps the commands that run when one changes things in the GUI menus are logged in some other file. Or perhaps they are not stored in any log. In this case there is probably some terminal command to know it, or some program for this.

I think that know that no xorg.conf is used by default this is something to have into account.
