CentOS 5 :: Firefox Not Starting On 5 Clients?

Nov 19, 2009

the start up fails, but a process is left running. these machines are running the latest stable version of Centos 5, and we have been "messing" with the firewall. When I'm logged on through a console, I get error messages that lockd can not contact the server even though the nfs mounted home directories work fine.

CentOS 5 :: Starting Apache But Cannot Browse In Firefox?

Oct 14, 2009

I have a problem, I'm have a course at high school (webserver management) in class this morning we had to install apache, php, ftp and so on but I didn't finish on time so when I got home I was playing around. I'm on wireless here and changed the vm connection from bridge to nat.

normally we had to install apache using yum (yum install httpd) and start the service. that's what I did and then we had to go to firefox (or IE) and type the ip of our server. but when I do I get "problem loading page" instead of the apache default page. I've set httpd runlever 2 to 5 to on and rebooted. but still not working.

General :: Starting A Service At Startup?

May 11, 2010

I want to start a service and a script SiteMonitor.sh at startup.

Here is brief working of SiteMonitor.sh(This script monitors the ip addresses of machines which are using http service of the host. This script checks this after every 5 seconds therefore i have run it at background.)

To start with i have modified /etc/rc.local file.

Here is the content of my /etc/rc.local file.

# This script will be executed *after* all the other init scripts.
# You can put your own initialization stuff in here if you don't
# want to do the full Sys V style init stuff.

Software :: Starting A Job At Startup Without Logging In?

Nov 30, 2010

I'm trying to think of the best way to have a job start up on it's own when a system (running CentOS 5) boots up. The job is a simple python script. However, there are some interesting conditions that need to be met:

- As stated, script needs to start and run in the background when the system boots up, but without anyone logging in.

- This script needs to be readable only by root, which means it will need to be run as root

- Only 1 person will have root access, meaning nobody else will have access to see this script or it's status.

The entire point is to have this thing running all the time, even if the system reboots, but to make it so nobody can see the script or view it's source, unless they have root access, which only 1 person will have.

I can think of plenty of ways to have things start up automatically when a system comes up, but they all involve having the user log in as part of it. How can I have a listening python script start up, at boot up, on it's own, without root actually logging in?

Ubuntu :: Preventing Upstart Jobs From Starting On Startup

May 24, 2010

I'd like to reconfigure vsftpd so that it does not start on boot (and I can enable/disable it using service vsftpd start/stop).

Though I've seen posts in the forums that stated that upstart jobs can be disabled by moving the /etc/init/job.conf file, other sites commented that the original file will be recreated on updates.

The other two suggestions were to alter the upstart script such that either the process starts on never:

start on (never
and filesystem
and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)
stop on runlevel [!2345]

Ubuntu Networking :: Dhcpd3 Server Not Starting On Startup?

May 31, 2010

I currently got Ubuntu 10.0.4 server edition running on my server. I got 2 network cards in it. One for (eth0) the pppoe connection and the other one (eth1) for dhcp and network.

When i installed dhcpd3 server a couple of days ago, it wouldn't start. So i searched the web and came on the conclusion that i have to do " sudo ifconfig eth1 down sudo ifconfig eth1 up"

Problem is i don't have connection with this pc all the time. So if i have to restart it, the dhcp server won't start.

Ubuntu :: Startup Services Not Starting (mysql / Apache2)

Feb 20, 2011

I had a hard drive failure and have recovered (rsync) my backup root filesystem onto a new drive. This all seems to be fine, except that at least two services no longer start: mysql and apache2.I can start successfully both through


sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start

although mysql throws a warning about Upstart. Neither start automatically.My system is Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS x86_64. Part of my reolution actions has involved a kernel update to 2.6.32-27-generic.I have tried to resolve the mysql issue first:


sudo update-rc.d -f mysql remove
sudo update-rc.d mysql defaults


sudo apt-get remove --purge mysql-server
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
adding them /etc/init.d/... start commands to /etc/init.d/rc.local script and to a session startup script

checking the services are in rcX.d (using bum and sysv-rc-conf) Ensuring there's a .conf file in /etc/init (which there is).I can't see anything in syslog which would suggest if the system has tried to start these but failed, but then I may be looking in the wrong place. I think they're not starting at all. I wonder if it's something to do with the restore, perhaps symlinks?

Debian :: Error On Startup - Starting NFS Common Utilities Failed

Apr 18, 2011

I'm not very sure when this issue started. Anyway, the system finally boots and I haven't had any further problems, but I somehow notice the booting to be a bit slower since this error appeared and I don't like watching the red letters that say "failed" every time I switch the computer on. I googled this before posting it, and other users have had this issue, but the solutions that worked for them didn't work for me.

This is the content of my /etc/network/interfaces file:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Software :: Firefox Not Starting After Update

May 15, 2010

I updated my Suse 11.1 distribution and suddenly Firefox stopped working. I went to a terminal and typed in "firefox" and nothing happened. No error message, no nothing. It just stood there.

If I did the sae as root or as another user, then Firefox would load as usual.

The issue for me was that I was using NoMachine (NX) to access my machine. It adds some lines to the LD_PRELOAD session variable. I removed the variable content et voila! I've got my Firefox working again

To check if you're in the same potential situation, do a "set | grep LD" and check the result. If you've got "LD_PRELOAD=" with nothing afterwards, you're not in the same case as me. Good luck finding our fix. If you see "LD_PRELOAD=some stuff here" then you may be in the same case as me. The type in "LD_PRELOAD=" and hit enter to clean he variable. Then in the same terminal type in "firefox" and it should just work.

Software :: Starting Firefox Under A Different User?

Mar 10, 2011

I've set up a second user for myself on my laptop.

My user on the laptop is 'tiger'

Let's call the second user 'jrdobbs'

I would like to log on to gmail/facebook/etc using the jrdobbs, but I don't want to switch users via X... I just want a second instance of firefox open, which stores all of its login information under /home/jrdobbs.

My naive attempt looked like this:

su -l -c "firefox" jrdobbs
Here was my thinking:
start firefox under 'su jrdobbs' ... firefox should store its files under the current user's $HOME/.mozilla

Ubuntu One :: Keyring Password Prompt Upon Starting Firefox?

Jul 12, 2010

A while ago, I removed the Ubuntu One entry from my Startup Applications because it was annoying having to activate the keyring every time I booted up/logged on. Now, I am prompted for a password once I start Firefox (mind that it's only the first time I run Firefox after boot/login). I'm assuming it's Ubuntu One because of the sequence of events, but feel free to correct me if you think otherwise. How can I stop this?

Running standard Ubuntu 10.04.

General :: Firefox Freezes For About 10 Seconds At Startup?

Sep 7, 2011

Every time I launch Firefox and go visiting some websites, I notice it freezes for about 10 seconds. Not always in the same websites, but it always happens sometime in the first 2 or 3 minutes of running. I can see the hard disk led is ON all the time the browser is hung.

My operating system is Linux and I don't currently have any extension/plugin installed here.

I have no form completion, no history and have no more than 20-30 bookmarks.

Has somebody noticed something similar, or know how can I debug this to find out what Firefox is doing or trying to do?
