Debian Configuration :: Grub Fails To Load From EFI?

Mar 8, 2011

I have happily been booting debian through grub2 by chain loading it with efi (rEFIt), until today, and now get to begin another learning experience I've been using linux for a while, and kept seeing the guides for splitting up /, /var, /tmp, /usr, and /home, into different partitions, so I did just that when I switched from Ubuntu to Debian (I've realized that this was a little bit pointless because I formated them all as ext4, but at least it acts as a safety for mission critical drives when I overfill /home. I unfortunately didn't give /tmp enough space, and it kept crashing SimpleScan so I decided to use gparted to resize it.

The operation went alright as far as I can tell, and was straight forward because there was some free space behind it so I only had to append the partition. I synced the master boot record through rEFIt as usual, but when I booted the linux partition grub did load, and only a blank screen is presented. I eventually figured out I could use the gparted live cd to boot back into debian, and have been screwing around for a while with grub commands trying to figure out how to allow rEFIt to successfully boot GRUB on its own again. I ran grug-mkconfig to replace my /boot/grub/grub.cfg file and have rebooted but that did not help.

I tried reinstalling grub and grub-common with apt-get, but I didn't purge configuration settings for fear of losing something important. My current focus is on the command grub-install. I think i just need to run this command with the /boot device, like su - root; grub-install /dev/sda1 or some thing like that. wipe out the MBR on /dev/sda1, or screw up what good configuration is left in grub, so I want to make sure that I'm using the right /dev. Currently the gparted output looks like this:

/dev/sda1: fat32 - GPT (gpt from fdisk, gparted shows EFI with the boot flag)
/dev/sda2: hfs+ - MacOSx
/dev/sda3: ext4 - /root

[code]...

how the gnome live gparted disk would have been able to boot. I have access to a hard drive so I'll probably end up making backup images of as many of the partitions as I can, and then try more drastic bashing around, but if anyone has any suggestions/wisdom they could offer while I'm researching solutions I'd appreciate it. I eventually want to try to axe my osx partition and boot directly from GRUB2-EFI so I figure it is worth the investment in time to get to know grub a little bit more intimately.

Debian :: 6.01 GRUB Installed But Fails To Load?

Mar 27, 2011

I'm trying to install Debian 6.01 on my PC. I have only 1 hdd and it has 3 partitions. On first there is windows 7 and on second ubuntu 10.10 and GRUB is installed to MBR and I can load both systems with no problems.As PC has no optical drive I was trying to install debian using USB stick but had no success. I was ready to give up when I've discovered that there is a W32 installer that I can run under Win 7. So I downloaded it and executed, it starts and download certain files and then it asks for reboot.

After reboot I can still chose between Win 7 and Ubuntu. If I chose win 7 I'm given a choice to run Windows or to continue setup for debian. Very well installer starts and I can chose all the classic stuff between languages etc. Then I come to a point where I need to choose partitions, ok as I have free 30 Gb partition i choose it for debian with settings:

Format in Ext4
Mount point: /

I already have a swap part that I can use. Done that I can start with selection of packages which goes fine and installs everything directly from debian mirrosrs. After that I choose GRUB to be installed into MBR and it goes fine. Some final steps and reboot.

After reboot GRUB offers me again Ubuntu or Win 7. So I can boot either Ubuntu or win 7 which gives me the same choice from before, Windoes or continue Debian setup. I tried doing the setup again with some repair options that it offers but still nothing happens.

Debian Configuration :: After Installing GRUB Win 7 Fails To Boot

Nov 26, 2015

I have a ~ 2008 notebook (Compaq CQ60-137EL) on which I had Windows 7 only (it was sold with Windows Vista installed).

Later I installed Debian Jessie 8.2.0 Stable ("Graphical expert install" from DVD), along with GRUB as a boot manager (I chose not to install it on the EFI removable media path).

Since then, if I select Windows 7 on the GRUB boot screen, I see "Starting Windows...", and after few seconds the screen flashes for a moment, and then the PC reboots: I see the bios screen, followed by the GRUB screen again.
What's even more weird about this is the fact it just happens only in like ~50% of the cases. In the other 50%, Win7 starts flawlessy.

I even tried to install Debian first, then Windows 7, then re-install GRUB, but I got the same issue, even with both system freshly installed.

On 6 attempts, 3 times it worked and 3 times it didn't.

On my desktop PC I'm in the same setting, but I don't have this issue. I think it may be related with the fact I have Win7 on a SSD and I installed Debian on a separate HDD, while on my notebook, as you can imagine, there's just one single HDD.

Ubuntu :: Grub Fails To Load After Vista Hibernated?

Apr 26, 2010

just installed ubuntu 9.10 besides the existing windows vista partition. Everything worked smoothly. However, after I let vista go into hibernation and then started up the system again, the grub was unable to load. Instead, I got the command prompt 'GRUB rescue'. When I boot from the live CD and try to open the ubuntu partition on 'places' in the desktop environment, I get the message that it cannot be done because windows has hibernated on the other partition, and that I need to delete the hibernation file. What do I do to get the GRUB to load? Now I am stuck with booting from the CD, and I cannot access Vista at all.

I currently have a Dell Dimension 4100 from 2000 upgraded with an Nvidia Geforce 6200 video card and 160 gig hard drive, I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 from 10.04 and once I restart, I hear a beep come out from my computer speaker, and then displays the following text:

General :: GRUB-2 Bootloader Fails To Load For Lack Of Floppy Drive?

Jul 21, 2010

2010.07.21 while trying to install Ubuntu 10.4 I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell workstation and am unable to get the Grub-2 bootloader to load properly. It seems to be failing for lack of a floppy drive on the system resulting in an error message that reads : error: fd0 cannot get C/H/S values.

I've gone through the Grub-2 page at [URL].. to no avail and other sources having similar problems have likewise turned up no solutions. here's the background: A while back I was trying to install a different version of Linux and had the same problems, then had to set the project aside for a bit. I don't think this has anything to do with Linux or Ubuntu per se, but rather Grub.

The system is an old (4-5 years) Dell workstation that has one drive (128 GB) set up for Windows XP and a second new drive (500GB) which I installed for Linux. There is a DVD/CD drive and the system contains no floppy drive at all. In one attempt to get this working I tried modifying the BIOS to indicate there was a floppy drive - this created a failure earlier in the chain with the BIOS failing to load properly, not unexpected, just a shot in the dark at that point.

At the moment I am considering just running out to buy and install a cheap floppy drive to see if that helps. I'll never use the thing though so I'd rather find a solution that doesn't require me to spend money on useless hardware. In any case, here's the /boot/grub/grub.cfg contents:

# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
#
### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/00_header ###

Debian Installation :: Jessie 8.3.0 Installer Fails To Load Software

Mar 10, 2016

I am trying to clean install Jessie 8.3.0 onto an old PC, where I already have wheezy 7.7 working. I am using the 3 DVD- i386, which passed the integrity check.

Installation goes on smoothly till completing the "Select and Install SW" stage from 1st and 2nd DVD. At this point I get the warning that "Installation step failed, ..", giving the choice to repeat.

When repeated, the process gets completed (without asking for 2nd DVD), the new installation boots normally, but the KDE desktop opens irregularly, with some basic applications missing, and some flaws during certain operations.

The APT does not show any missing/broken link. I tried and repeat the installation with different choices as for kernels and/or desktops, but got the same result. I cannot guess where the problem originates, nor whether it is a known bug of the installer.

Debian Configuration :: Load Balancing Over Two ISP

Oct 16, 2015

I'm trying to set load balancing over 2 ISP link on a router / firewall running Debian Jessie.

There are iptables rules for balancing and forwarding:

Code: Select alliptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -j CONNMARK --restore-mark
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -m mark ! --mark 0 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -j MARK --set-mark 10
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -m statistic --mode random --probability 0.5 -j MARK --set-mark 20
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -i $wan1 -j MARK --set-mark 10

[Code] .....

There are iproute2 rules:

Code: Select allip route add 172.20.0.0/24 dev eth0 src 172.20.0.150 table WAN1
ip route add default via 172.20.0.254 table WAN1
ip route add 192.168.0.0/24 dev eth1 src 192.168.0.150 table WAN2
ip route add default via 192.168.0.254 table WAN2

[Code] ....

The packets marked as 20, theoretically routed via table WAN2 via 192.168.0.254, are lost.

The WAN2 gateway is working if I set as default without balancing.

I disabled the rp_filter module on all interfaces and I installed xtables-addons-dkms.

I also try this but I had trouble with forwarded connexions.

Debian Configuration :: CPU Does Not Scale Down When Under Low Load

Dec 28, 2015

I would like my CPU to be overclocked, while retaining frequency scaling capabilities. The CPU is a Core2 Quad Q6700, with a stock speed of 2.67 GHz. In my BIOS, I can manually increase the FSB, but if SpeedStep (EIST) is enabled, the increased FSB is ignored by Linux, and the max speed remains 2.67 GHz. If I disable SpeedStep, then the CPU successfully runs at the higher speed I would expect, but does not scale down when under low load. As it is now, I am only running it at 2.8 GHz.Does CPUFreq *require* SpeedStep to be enabled in the BIOS?

Debian Installation :: 7.4 - WiFi Configuration Fails

Apr 8, 2014

I've been installing multiple versions of ubunutu over years and now I better understand why I faced always problems with wifi configuration on these different baselines : Debian root of course.

Now on Debian 7.4 :
The Broadcom BCM4313 driver is not loaded by default (not free product) for my wifi card. This is stated thru the UNCLAIMED declaration

Code: Select all 
sudo lshw -c network
 *-network UNCLAIMED
       description: Network controller
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ...

Unclaimed means : no driver found (no kernel association)

So I installed the driver located in the non-free backports by adding this target into the repository

Code: Select alldeb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

and install :

Code: Select allsudo apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-brcm80211
sudo modprobe brcm80211

Check seems OK :

Code: Select allsudo lshw -c network

  *-network
       description: Wireless interface
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ....

I can't connect with wlan0, it doesn't work. I found information here regarding WPA2/PSK wifi configuration on debian : [URL] ....

so I added this setup to my interfaces file an got :

Code: Select allauto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 wpa-ssid Hznteam-Datacenter
 # hexadecimal psk is encoded from a plaintext passphrase
 wpa-psk 12345678901234567890123456

It's worth ! no more wifi network are detected and ifconfig gives no ip address allocated :

Code: Select allwlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 78:e4:00:4e:49:a3 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

Debian Configuration :: Xen - Qemu - Fails To Get Into Gnome

Jan 15, 2010

I've just installed lenny from dvd, and am just settling in. I'm curious about virtual machines. so I've installed xen. With xen comes qemu by default. Now the setup I've recently become familiar with is Suse-11 which is quite slick.In Suse, Yast provides a distribution prepared virtual management section for xen, including an installer. Debian's setup is similar but not a clone. I want to try out the installer. Aside from the differences, debian has a screaming deficit. On booting dom0 in Lenny, if fails to get into gnome, badly. I can tell what's probably wrong, but I need to fix it. Now I'm also a gentoo fan and very practised at posting queries, so here goes.

Debian's config for X is somewhat unhelpful. The xorg.conf just states Configured device and configured monitor for its components. If it expanded on just what the settings were it would help. What I have is a frambuffer driver not loadinf or being implemented.

Debian Configuration :: Update Linuximage Fails ?

Dec 9, 2010

I have squeeze using the default setup with 5 seperate partitions on hard drive. All other updates are fine but it will not install the Linux-Image-2.6.32-5-amd64. I get message that not enough room. I think this is the kernal update. I use update manager. Is there a fix for this short of resizing the partition. This is a one computer/user setup. I had this problem on a previous install of stable and ignored it thinking that it was a glitch. That install was an experimental setup and I liked it but it didn't work on the internet very well so went to testing.

Debian Configuration :: Network Fails On DHCPNAK?

Jun 20, 2011

My debian machine works fine other that it loses network after a few (12 or so) hours. The dhclient manages to renew the DHCP lease the first time, after a few hours, but later when it tries again the modem gives a DHCPNAK. If I understood correctly, this should make the dhclient to fetch a new ip address but it does nothing. I am no expert so I don't know if the cause is the modem box or the debian. There are other (windows) machines connected to the modem box which work fine. The machines are behind NAT.

The debian machine does not currently have a display or a graphics card so it's difficult to start messing with the settings. I've considered having a static ip but I don't understand why the dynamic address doesn't work. What is weird is that it worked fine for several weeks and suddenly started failing. I was running a minecraft server (hehe) with an uptime of several weeks. At first I though it was a hardware issue because I thought the whole computer froze but instead it just drops the connection and I can no longer reach it with SSH or anything.My timezone is UTC+3, /etc/default/rcS has UTC=yes, I believe it is the reason why the lease and the logs differ by three hours.The machine is only running apache2+mysql+php5, GDM is stopped.I'm trying to post as much info I can.Here is the ifconfig output when the connection is working for the wired connection:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:22:2b:28:f6
inet addr:10.0.0.7 Bcast:10.0.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

Debian Configuration :: How To Load Driver Automatically

Sep 21, 2015

I have PCI-device and driver for it - tmk1553b.ko

The problem is to make this device work i have to open terminal after system starts and write

Code: Select allcd /path/to/driver
sudo insmod ./tmk1553b.ko d0=1 t0="TAI" misc=1

But idea is that this PC will work without operator so driver must be loaded automatically. As i realized the solution is to make script but when i try google it shows me how and where to put this script but not how to make it. Also i've tried to put tmk1553b.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/misc but it doesn't work.

Debian :: Grub If Only Booting / Only To Boot/load More Than One OS?

Nov 9, 2010

I am using Debian Squeeze, having installed it after Windows 7, each on a separate HD.

What happened was that Win7 became unbootable and, after failing to recover it, decided to live without it.

After a (happy) week of Windows-free life, I'm wondering if I can safely remove GRUB ("Grub-pc" and "Grub-common" are installed) since, as far as I know, GRUB is there only to boot/load more than one OS?

Debian Configuration :: Resume After Suspend Fails With Kernel 2.6.36

Aug 27, 2011

I'm having problems with resume after suspend to RAM. The machine starts to wake up, but the screens (multi mon VGA and DVI setup) are black and the keyboard doesn't light up. After ~20 seconds there's some brief disk activity and then the computer reboots. 100% repeatable with affected kernel versions. My test method is simple, I boot the machine on the kernel's recovery option, log on as root and run "PM_DEBUG=1 pm-suspend". I haven't found anything in the logs after a failed resume.

Here's the situation:
I have a SSD disk. To get TRIM support I have to use kernel 2.6.33 or later, which means that the standard kernel in Squeeze is too old.I have Nvidia graphics, and there was a change in 2.6.34 that breaks older versions of xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (version 0.0.15, used in Squeeze), I can't use Debian Squeeze with a kernel newer than 2.6.33.x.My machine (XFX GeForce 9300 motherboard) won't resume from suspend to RAM if I use a kernel newer than 2.6.36. There are no BIOS updates available.

My options:
Install newer kernel from Squeeze backports (2.6.38.2 last time I tried). <--- Not doable b/c of resume problems. Upgrade to Wheezy, which uses kernel 3.0.x. <--- Not doable b/c of resume problems.Compile a vanilla kernel. So basically I'm forced to compile my own vanilla kernel, 2.6.33.x on Squeeze or 2.6.35.x on Wheezy. I won't be stuck with an unsupported kernel version in the near future, but so far I've failed miserably.

I know that the latest kernel version where everything works is 2.6.36.x (no longer maintained), 2.6.37.0 and later cause resume problems (I've tried 2.6.37, 38, 39 and 3.0.0, .0.1). I've tried doing a git bisect on the kernel, but didn't succeed, ended up on 2.6.36-rc5 which is weird considering that 2.6.36.4 works. There may be several suspend/resume bugs in different kernel versions that messed up the bisecting results.

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Modules Won't Load Anymore

Jul 7, 2015

After a hiatus I found my machine to be down, but upon turning it on I get significant errors and dropped into emergency mode (see below). This machine wasn't very up-to-date to begin with, so I'm having difficulty determining the order in which to proceed. A couple naive checks and updates on my part are not working. The file system appears to be intact enough to "cd" around and "ls" to see that my files are all (seemingly) there. But the kernel modules aren't loading which is, you know, a problem.

The state I find it in is that it will begin booting to Linux 3.2 (which I know is no longer supported in testing, see below where I tried to update to 3.16), but fails quickly and puts me into emergency mode

Loading, please wait...
megasas: INIT adapter done

systemd[1]: Failed to open /dev/autofs: No such file or directory
systemd[1]: Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory
systemd[1]: Failed to set up automount Arbitrary Executable File Formats File System Automount Point.

...Then several drives show up as clean....

Running "journalctl -xb" shows that it can't mount the module even though it's there on the disk:
... systemd-modules-load[259]: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/modules.dep.bin'

... systemd-modules-load[259]: Failed to lookup alias 'loop': Function not implemented

And yet, if I 'ls' that modules.dep.bin file, it's right where it's supposed to be, for the appropriate architecture and everything.

After that (in the journalctl output), it shows several things start up, but systemd-modules-load.service fails:
.. systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
.. systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Linux <my hostname> 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.32-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I tried updating via apt to the Linux 3.16.0 kernel, but grub wasn't finding it in a way that effects the boot process, and no appropriate "vmlinuz-" file appears with the others on the boot partition. So, I tried switching to grub2 but the update-grub command produces many errors.... For now, grub2 still (attempts to) load the old kernel (3.2) with the same results as I was getting with the old grub-legacy.

Regarding the module-loading features, running "lsmod" shows about 30 lines:

Module
ext3
mbcache
jbd
dm_mod
usbhid
hid

[Code] ....

...I'm at the limit of what I know to check and/or try.

Debian Configuration :: How To Load Own Kernel-module (KO) In Jessie

Mar 14, 2016

I built a kernel-module for a new usb wifi-card. This worked well and resulted in a 8821au.ko-file. But now I'm trying to load this kernel module since half an hour and it doesn't work. I copied the ko-file into /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/kernel/drivers/edimax. If I just type

Code: Select allsudo modprobe 8821au

I get a

Code: Select allmodprobe: FATAL: Module 8821au not found..

But if I enter the full path inside the /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64-folder:

Code: Select allsudo modprobe -v ./kernel/drivers/edimax/8821au.ko

it seems to work:

Code: Select allbuiltin ./kernel/drivers/edimax/8821au.ko.

But lsmod doesn't show me the module after that.

I also added

Code: Select all./kernel/drivers/edimax/8821au.ko

to /etc/modules but this also doesn't seem to work. When booting I get an error-message, but it's too fast to read it and I can't find the right log-file, where the booting-part with the "[ OK ]"-messages is reported.

So my driver is ready, the onliest thing which I can't get working is loading it as a kernel-module.

Debian Configuration :: Splashy - Load Stalls On Boot ?

Nov 22, 2010

I have installed splashy from sid. Rest of the system is squeeze, and put the parameter "vga=791 splash quiet" in the kernel parameter...

Unfortunately this is not working properly. It does load the splash image as intended, but it then just hangs here, and does not load the OS unless I press enter. (I asume that something is hangning, but I cannot see the shell from here, and ctrl+f2-f6 is not working so I cannot get to any tty).

Then after boot, I can only see the / partition. But not /home. Duing a fdisk -l shows up the partitions, so they are there, just not mounted at boot?

If I press F2 at boot, before the image shows up, it does actually boot without any issues at all. It must be something with the image loading that is causing this.
