CentOS 5 :: Getting Error Message And Random Hangs / Fix This?

Oct 2, 2009

I recently installed CentOS 5.3 on a Dell PowerEdge 1800 server that used to have Microsoft Windows SBS 2003 on it. Everything seemed to be going fine until a few days ago. Here's the sum of it all...

- System seems to randomly hang, at which it becomes unavailable on the network (can't be pinged, monitor won't come back on, and you can't wake it up... have to reboot, the scroll lock and caps lock keys flash at the same time)
- Received this error message...

Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason a0.
You probably have a hardware problem with your RAM chips.
Dazed and confused, but trying to continue.

...it doesn't crash at this point though. I ran memtest86 twice and did not experience any problems. I updated the BIOS to the newest version, which contained a few bug fixes, but still experienced the same problems

CentOS 5 :: Installing CentOS 5.5 On An Old PC -- Query On An Error Message?

Oct 24, 2010

I'm trying to install CentOS 5.5 on an old Pentium 4 desktop PC I have, which is not being used for much other than being a MTA, and I want to migrate this functionality onto the CentOS platform for stability (Windows is a perpetual nightmare. I partitioned a spare 20GB to experiment with, and I want to install CentOS into here to play around with first so I can move my files around between Windows and CentOS, until I'm happy all of the stuff is gone, then I can scrub the Windows partition and claim the space for CentOS.

So, I've downloaded and burned the DVD and tried to install. I start the install with no args from the main install menu, and the process goes through some probing and then comes up with the "Welcome to CentOS" menu. I go through this, and then it tries to start X Server. It fails, and falls back to text mode. I get the "Welcome to CentOS" screen again, and then proceed through it. I set my keyboard layout to UK, then this message comes up at the bottom of the screen:

"_X11TransSocketINETConnect() can't get address for localhost:6001: Temporary failure in name resolution"

then on the next line: "Cannot open display :1" If I force the install to text, by typing "linux text" at the first menu, I get about the same way through, but the install just hangs doing nothing, and no disc access to the install disc.

Fedora :: F12 - Hangs At Random ?

Dec 31, 2009

About a week after I installed F12 on a brand new system, a friend came over and went on to play poker on facebook. At some point he yelled that the PC froze. I was working on another machine at the time and tried to ssh to the supposedly hung system, but couldn't; Except for playing poker he had audacious open and about 3 seconds of the song that was playing at the time of the hang, kept looping. Neither Ctrl+Alt+Backspace nor any of the Alt+SysRq combos had any effect whatsoever, so I had to press the reset button (and I have to say this was the first time I had to do so in linux after almost a decade of using it, save for a hiccup with my first gentoo kernel).

The system usually freezes if there are two or more sound streams, but that is not always the case. The best way to get the system to crash is by playing something in audacious or rhythmbox while seeking through a video in mplayer or vlc or having flash content appear in firefox (I am using adobe's latest 64-bit flash plug-in and have been using it without any problems -though on other systems- since F10). Also most but not all the times the system is going to hang, there are a few skips in audacious every ~10-30 minutes. I've been getting the lock-ups with every kernel released so far.

My system logs don't contain any useful info after each hang; there are however certain problems mentioned in syslog which I thought they could be relevant, but they always appear whether the system works fine or not, namely the following:


I used to get a lot more of these with previous kernels:



This one appeared every now and then until Dec 25:


And this one is always there:


Finally, at every boot I get this from abrtd, but it doesn't seem to be related:


Yesterday, I devoted the entire day to hunting down the culprit, but I couldn't get the system to hang; I had rhytmbox, audacious, totem, vlc, mplayer and vlc all playing music and videos simultaneously from local disks, network shares and through upnp, I got myself a facebook account in order to play that zynga poker thing, I upgraded alsa-lib to 1.0.22 from updates-testing, rebooted countless times, but the system didn't hang nor did any of the above messages disappear.
Today as I was browsing through some web pages, one of which had an interactive flash ad, while listening to music and the system froze again.

Slackware :: Random Hangs / Sort It Out?

Feb 21, 2010

I made some hardware upgrades today: installed a new video card, a new CPU cooler, and a DVD burner. Everything seemed fine, but every 10-15 minutes the computer just freezes. Freeze is actually the wrong word since I can still move the mouse's cursor, but it has no effect. Keyboard input is useless and I just have to reboot. On the 3rd reboot fsck checked the root partition and made some changes.

I have checked system/CPU temperature to see if maybe the cooler wasn't working right and checked it's mounts. Everything there is great.

The system hangs whether I'm using the burner or not. (It's an ASUS)

The hangs seem to happen when scrolling a window or changing desktops, but I'm constantly doing something to that effect so it's hard to say if that's the cause.

The card is GALAXY Geforce 240GT. I've never used a Galaxy card so I'm leaning towards that, and have gone back to the old Geforce 9400 in the meantime, but while I'm waiting to see what happens, I was wondering if maybe the filesystem getting modded in the fsck check might point to a filesystem error causing the hangs, or if it seemed more likely that the filesystem was corrupted by the hangs.

Fedora :: Live / DVDinstall Hangs On Random Times - Debug It?

Jul 23, 2010

I get the newest fedora 13 dvd install & the live cd. Put on the disk and try to install. But the installer hangs on random times, so i cant install the system. Sometimes hangs on the anaconda start, others in the partition tables, others in the language section.

i try to run the live cd and install from there. Ok the first time the cd boot very nice . But when i try to install , the pc hangs again. Other times the boot from live even finish, when the last percents r coming, hangs again.

I all hangs, the dvd drive stop's and never return. So the Fan of cpu start to run very quickly and stay there forever until my patience permits.

So i use the ubuntu installer ( almost 4 years with u fedora, and need ubuntu installer!?shame on u) and search some information about the case. Yes, the last ubuntu boot,install, and run out of the box very quickly!

I see others with Dell & others brands still have problems with hangs and freezing , in boot and installs, so the first thing i search was the kernel parameters and try to use some flags.

I think the source of this kind of problem is the acpi . When i check the flag pci=noacpi or acpi=off , i have see that on the pre-anaconda start, when u choose the english language in text mode, clicking next the installer cant anymore find the media DVD, and the hard disk with the partition table. Sometimes the installer brings me the option to search in the ubuntu partitions, sometimes no.

How to debug and search the source of the problem? Any way? code...

General :: Instability In Fedora 15 - Black Screen And Message Appear At Random

Jun 15, 2011

if I reboot the computer, I get the grub menu and am able to choose between Win7 and Fc15. A couple of times during installation the screen flashed black and diplayed a message for a brief second. I can't read that fast but it says something like "DRM nouveau- unknown or unsupported chipset" and one more line that I can't catch. When this happens, I see the pre-login loading screen, the one that shows an icon of a hard drive, network, and so on as each resource is secured. I can log back in, but this starts a new session- it doesn't remember what I was doing. I had to redo the install and setup several times because of this.

I can log in and so on normally, but the black screen and message will appear at random, forcing me to start all over, which is really frustrating. what's going on? Is it the video card? How do I install a driver for it? Also, the hard drive in question has been through a lot. could it have a bad sector or something? Windows didn't even want to "see" it, that's why Fedora is installed on there.

CentOS 5 :: Random Kernel Panics / Correct It?

Jul 8, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.3 x86_64 on my laptop (dell vostro 1400, core2duo, 3GB RAM, intel 3945ABG wireless, nvidia video and LAN). The problem is that some times (like 15-20% of times) I shutdown the laptop, I get a kernel panic related always to the wireless kernel module (I haven't been able to get screenshot or anything). I'm using the latest centosplus kernel. I never get these panics with the standard CentOS kernel, however the standard kernel doesn't light the wireless led, and that annoys me a lot. Therefore I'm forced to use centosplus kernel. The question is not how to solve this (i know I've not given enough details) but what to do to diagnose better the cause of the panic and then correct it.

CentOS 5 Server :: Postfix Random Delivery ?

Apr 13, 2011

I configured a Postfix Server to relay the messages to an Exchange Server. To keep it simple I configured all my users locally and I setup local .forward files in their home folders, specifying their local Exchange address.

Everything seemed to work fine (for years now), until I upgraded postfix in October, 23rd 2010.

Alas, lately I noticed that, since then, even if I just realized it now, sometimes the server seems not to use the .forward file and tries to use the local delivery using cyrus, which does not find a local mail folder (obviously, since I never created them as I didn�t want to) and replies to the sender with a "550-Mailbox unknown" error. Today I enabled the "-v" mode for "local" in master.cf the debugging the problem a bit better, to see what's the problem.

If I was sure about the problem being the postfix version (2.3.3, which is way too old now!), I'd give it a try and substitute it with the latest 2.8.2 (even if the server is a production server and is almost untouchable).

Following the error and my main.cf and master.cf setup files:

CentOS 5 :: Unable To GCC Compile Any Stuff - Random Errors

I am new to CENTOS (5.2) and more importantly new to linux. Any time I try to gcc compile something, it always throws random errors.
