Ubuntu :: Won't Play Cd - Complete Error Log - Hanging / Freezing On Windows
Jan 4, 2011
my first impressions are that for all the dissing of Windows at least if I stick a CD in the tray it plays....I installed ubuntu 9.04 on a VM running alongside WindowXP and upgraded to 9.10. When I open rhythmbox and put a CD in the tray nothing happens..despite the book saying it will play automatically....after much googling I cannot find anything on this problem..most people are trying to stop autoplay. There is not even a cdrom option in the sidepanel of Rhythmbox. I have installed ubuntu-restricted-extras as advised...nada.
A chat room reply suggested abandon rhythmbox and install vlc which I did...same problem though at least i get an error message "unable to open MRL cdda://dev/sr0". As a complete newbie I do not know what to put int he command line to run rhythmbox or vlc to see the complete error log. I have spent two days trying to resolve this problem...the equivalent of several months worth of hanging/freezing on windows
since installing 11.04 on a computer that was running 10.04 perfectly, the system hangs for a split second every 10 seconds or so. If you make little circles with the mouse pointer you will see it jump position when the computer hangs briefly. If you are listening to audio or watching video then this also hangs for the same very short length of time.
I had the exact same problem when I tired going to 10.10 and so had to go back to 10.04. I was hoping it may just be an issue with that version but it seems not. The computer is: 1.6GHz Intel Core Solo, 1GB Memory, the motherboard is a Jetway Mini ITX board with integrated Intel graphics. It has no problem running the 3D stuff in Unity (or any of the old gnome desktops). Changing to 2D or turning off desktop effects in 10.10 does nothing to solve the problem. 10.04 seems to be the last time Ubuntu worked properly with the computer.
I am having problems with freezing, hanging, blackouts and being unable to boot with 10.4. After having replaced the hard drive 3 times, and after reading much about these problems, have decided to regress to 9.10. How do I do it? I am weary of cleaning my hard disk to download 9.10 in case it freezes in the middle of the process.
I have all my music stored as digital files on my hard drive, in a tree of folders. The smallest branches of the tree represent individual albums, each holding a dozen or so individual song files. I have Amarok 2.0.2 installed on Kubuntu 9.04. The program opens as expected, and using the "Files" tab in the left pane I can navigate to any sub-directory I want. I can see the listings of songs within each album's sub-directory.
But I cannot figure out how to make Amarok play those songs. Drag and drop from the left pane into either the center pane or right pane does nothing. Right-click and "Append to Playlist" does not appear to do anything -- the "Playlist" tab in the left pane remains empty, and the center and right panes remain empty. I've tried to find the answer in the on-line Amarok manual, but the documentation only seems to take me to the point of finding the songs in the left pane, but not how to make Amarok play them.
I use web server apache use php fastcgi (Centos 5.2, apache 2.2.9 , php 5.2.5 and fcgi-2.2.4 ). I receive error : "The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. contact the server administrator, email@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. I view log :
i have installed nagios in centos 64 bit. but i get this error CHECK_NRPE: Error - Could not complete SSL handshake. i have totally 10 hostgroup definitions. but i'm getting error for only 3 hostgroup definitions other 7 are working fine.
I just installed the ubuntu 10.10 as a dual boot with windows xp. I have a problem of the computer getting stuck, freezing so the mouse nor the keyboard respond. This usually happens when I open multiple tabs on mozilla Firefox...
I currently have Ubuntu installed on my laptop.I have it set up the way I like it. However, I want Windows on here too...the thing is, I dont want to have to format if possible, I know that you need to install windows before Ubuntu. I have ubuntu all set up how I Like it and it would be a shame to have to wipe it.Is there any way at all I can install windows along side it without having to do a complete format?
This is happening pretty often. when in ubuntu, usually while i'm browsing the web, my browser will go dim then a box will come up saying something along the lines of missing resources. the thing is, all my desktop icons will then turn to red x's and no text characters on any further boxes will show. when i restart it says grub error and takes one more restart to finally come on. i got fed up with it and switched over to windows 7 where my browser also froze and my computer froze up.
i've installed nagios just from a while and after i installed centreon, since this when i try to log in the web interface of nagios it shows up this message: Internal Server Error

Last time I installed Ubuntu in a dualboot configuration with Win7 on one of my machines, my entire boot sector and Windows install got corrupted, resulting in a complete loss of all my data and requiring a fresh install of Windows.
I looked into this a bit after the fact, and it seemed to me it was due to conflicting hard disk geometry between Linux and Windows.
My question is, how likely is this to happen with Fedora? Is this because of Ubuntu? A bad install? Is there someway I can avoid this from happening when I install Fedora if it will happen?
I am running Fedora 8. Each time I run a YUM command, I get the message that there are unfinished transactions, and to run yum-complete-transaction. Upon running yum-complete-transaction, it fails with this error. How can I remove this uncompleted transaction so I can finish the last one?
I was trying to install Ubuntu over Windows XP 64-bit and the installation kept freezing, I decided to use the alternate installer and it worked. My only problem now is that I can't run Ubuntu for more that 2 minutes without it freezing on my and the only way to fix it is by holding my power button on my computer to shut it off. Sometimes it just restarts without freezing so I would be doing something and then my screen would turn black and reboot my PC.
I think Ubuntu is cool and I am fairly new to it. I would like to keep using it but I have to use recovery mode to be able to use it without crashing. (Low Graphics Mode or W/E it is called.) I have no idea what is causing these freezes. I have installed the Linux drivers and updated everything and it still happens to crash while I am using it outside of Recovery mode.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed in my laptop through a windows installation and I want to make a new, complete, install so I can boot directly in Ubuntu (and change some configuration choices I didn't get right in the first place). Is there any (as simple as posible) way to save my actual data (users, software installed, personal files...) as a whole so I can "install" all that back to the "new" Ubuntu installation?
If I have a hard-disk with Ubuntu fully installed on it and I want to - all of a sudden - use Windows XP, is it mandatory that I firstly format the hard-disk first? So far, I have used two versions of Windows XP; one of them is from a few years before the other. Both copies of Windows XP when in start-up from booting from CD are causing errors. One of them is a BSOD error (0x0000007B) and the next Windows CD is stopping and giving me an error with setupdd.sys (error code 4). Is it required that the hard-disk is formatted before you even put a Windows boot CD in?
I have a dual-boot windows and Suse linux 11.1 setup. I can save and restore a linux image. Trying to save an image of Windows results in Partimage freezing at the "NTFS Information" window before the "save partition to image file." I have two SystemRescue CDs of versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 I have two computers one with Windows 2000 and one with Windows XP I have defragmented the partitions several times over. Users are told that use with "NTFS is experimantal". Several up-beat webpage tutorials also mention this but go on to say how marvellous it works for them. Naturally, such sites do not mention problems. This is the province of the forums. I have found nothing that relates to my problem though. Hence my post appealing for any guidance on offer.
I had windows 7 and I was addicted to play GTA san andreas multi-player. It is still in my computer > C:/ PROGRAM FILES/ROCKSTAR GAMES/samp.exe I want to play that now but when I click on samp.exe it opens with File Roller 22.214.171.124
I can't seem to get DVD playback to work. I installed Ubuntu restricted extras and I mad sure that libdvdread4 and libdvdnav4 were both installed and still no luck. Movie Player says there is an error when trying to play and VLC does nothing at all. The disc does appear on my desktop and I can go through its contents.
I recently upgraded my hardware to 64 bit dual core and a new Nvidia graphics card - GeForce 210. When I tried to play a BBC documentary, nothing happened. I think movie player starts up and promptly crashes. I tried starting the program manually and asking it to play the DVD. The program crashed and "vanished before my eyes". Oh well! another nvidia story. I dual booted and even Windows Media Player (latest version), refused to play the DVD, complaining of some security mismatch or something to do with the video card driver. I downloaded and installed VLC, windows version and all went well. Returning to Ubuntu, I found that the Linux version of VLC failed. (I have installed the proprietary drivers)
I've just installed Ubuntu and it seems the sound isnt working in it. Anyway - i have two screens. One is a tv and i want the sound to come out of there(its running through a hdmi cable).Works completely fine in windows. I havn't installed nivada plugin thingy as it stops my dual monitors working =(. So maybe this is the problem? From what i remember it worked in wubi though (without nivada drivers)I followed the troubleshoot and couldn't seem to find anything wrong?
