I am using Debian sid 4.1.3-1 and when i shutdown the system it takes 3 - 5 minutes before actually shutdown, there is only a black screen until the hdd led start flashing and after that the system finally shutdown. The weird part is that sometimes it happen in less than 30 seconds , how can i figure out where the problem is ?
I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?
I have installed jessie on a couple of machines. One is configured as the NFS filesystem exporter and NIS server. The other one, I am trying to configure as NFS and NIS client. NFS does not seem too much of a problem, I can mount the exported filesystem to a directory in the client and unmount it, but when I install NIS the system becomes very slow. Any command preceded by "sudo" takes a very long time (a few minutes) to complete. Then, upon rebooting the system, it reports many services failed to start (login, accounts, modem manager, avahi, network manager, exim). When if finally completes, I get a terminal login, instead the graphic login window.
Laptop : Dell Latitude D620 - Intel Core2Duo T5500 1.66GHz - Intel 945GM graphic - 2GB DDR2 667 RAM - Samsung 400GB SATA 5400rpm Harddisk. OS : Debian Squeeze amd64 - Gnome. I browse the web with this laptop,with ethernet connection,with Icewesel running 2 tab,just after 5 minutes,it auto turn off itself. Never happen before,I don't know what happen. This laptop only support 2D,there's no 3D graphic driver,so no visual effect apply. I start the laptop after 10 minutes,type sensors and get this output :
I have been noticing recently that my net speed has been getting slower and slower. I have disabled IPV6, cleared all caches and cookies but am not seeing any great difference. Last week I installed Knoppix 6.4.4 to have a look at it, and was amazed at the speed of the net -- one major difference was a 10 Mb pdf I was trying to download. In maverick using Firefox the download failed 10 times at between 1.2 and 1.4 megs. In Knoppix it completed first time in about 4 minutes. I have compared page loading speed and pages load on average 6-8 times faster than in Ubuntu. I have not altered any other settings.
Has anyone had any issues when they freshly install Windows XP in VirtualBox?
I just created a system in vBox with an AMD x4 925 2.8Ghz Quadcore Processor (with AMD Virtualization on). I gave the system 3 cores, 3GB of RAM, 128mb video memory, turned off all acceleration and gave it a 60GB virtual drive.
Following installation I have noticed the vbox is unusable. I click on the start menu for example and it takes 3-4 seconds to show up. Furthermore, just moving the mouse shows a frame rate at, what I would guess, around 5 frames/sec.
This is strange as I have given this machine very good specs.
Is anyone else seeing high CPU usage with this new kernel while using Firefox 4? I didn't have this problem before this update. If I boot into the previous kernel there is no problem surfing the web with Firefox 4
This kernel update has made browsing the web very slow and scrolling the browser window incredibly slow to the point of frustration.
Should this be reported as a bug or an issue with the new kernel or has anyone already reported this issue?
I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2 with all the released updates are installed. I've got an Windows Xp SP3 on the same hard drive and it's works fine. S.M.A.R.T. says the hdd is 100%. A few days ago I realized that the boot time increased and the hard drive operations takes way too much time. So currently the boot sequence takes 11-14 minutes.
I've already tried to solve this problem but no effect: 1.) cleaned up the root directory to create more free space 2.) plugged the sata cable to another port 3.) changed from AHCI to IDE and reverse in BIOS settings 4.) added ahci, sata_nv into the /etc/sysconfig/kernel file and created a new initrd 5.) searched for problems in the syslog Just to imagine how slow is currently the system/hdd:
So i am very new to linux based OS. Just started getting used to the terminal. but my problem is i am trying to install a game on steam and it is downloading very slow. i am used to getting close to 700 kb/s on windows 7 but on ubuntu 11.04 i am only getting 170-180 max. now i have searched all over and tried to fix it on my own but i just cant figure it out and am getting very frustrated. so if anybody has an idea as to how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated. (have looked through the forum by the way but as i said im new to linux and im not actually sure if im looking at the right things) but im using a wired connection. it says im connected to something called auto etho. and there is something called a loopback connection or something like that.
I have f11 installed on as a vm on virtualbox 3.0.4. It takes forever to boot. I modified /etc/udev/udev.conf and changed udev_log="info" to udev_log="debug" and rebooted the system. When the progress bars came up I hit Esc and watched the boot process. Udev runs through approximately 7-800 items before it ever tries to load anything else. Is there a way that I can change this? I have been through the forums and can't find anything similar to this. I thought maybe that it was the "Floppy" issue so I went ahead and blacklisted the floppy drive (as this is a vm I don't have access to the BIOS) anyway.
Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.
AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.
I have ubuntu 10.10 installedWhen it was new It was too speedy in starting upbut, Now It is taking about two to three minutes to getting started.I tried to remove some applications from System/Preferences/Startup Applications,But no differenceI want to speed my systemIt has no problem in speed after starting up
I have just installed Ubuntu for the first time using a USB drive and everything went fine during installation. However now during the boot phase I see 10 or so lines of [14.24024] ata5: COMRESET failed (error=-16) The numbers prior to COMRESET change with each line but the rest remains the same. I am extremely new to Ubuntu or Linux for that matter as this boot process is also taking about 3-4 or even 5minutes as it slowly cycles through each error. Once 10 or so lines have popped up the computer finishes starting and I can log in fine and everything.
I have been a Debian user for some time already, and lately I experienced a weird behaviour regarding shutdowns/restarts. The thing is my computer shuts down very very slowly, but not because of HDD activity, nor because of CPU activity (as far as I know, I may be wrong). It stops at some point, and after that, it hangs between 5 seconds and... even 5 minutes. The time in which comes back to normal and continues the shutdown process varies and has absolutely no pattern.
This is where it hangs (the last line appeared because I disconnected the mouse):
After mapping iscsi storage from my netapp and scanning for new devices I run multipath -v2 to create the multipath device handle under /dev/mapping/. This normally takes about 2 seconds or less on every other linux distribution I use. On Stretch it takes a little over 3 minutes. I have tried several different versions of multipath.conf but the result is always the same.
My most recent multipath.conf file is available here : [URL] ....
and the output of multipath -v4 is available here : [URL] ....
I have been a Linux user in the past for a good couple of years but I got back into gaming and left Linux for a while. Now after coming back to it, I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 and all networking just seems incredibly slow.
I've browsed the internet as much as I can and found those Firefox pipelining tweaks all over the place; trying them makes no difference whatsoever so I decided to take a temporary solution and resort to OpenDNS but even this feels obviously too slow for the broadband I have.
Not only with loading web pages in Firefox, I have also tried downloading files from the internet and trying Google Chrome. But neither of these were right either.
I'm almost 90% sure it's not my BTHomeHub that's causing the problems because when using Windows, it works just fine and internet speeds are perfectly normal. The only OS I'm having this speed problem with is Ubuntu.
I'm unsure as to what evidence/help I can post, pings, IPv4/IPv6 information or WiFi configurations?
Just wondering though, this seems to be a big problem with Ubuntu 10.04 so has anyone had and solved this problem before and returned their internet speeds to what they should be?
I search many hours on the web for wipe my ram in a secure way and i find nothing good/secure/work exept URL... and i think it's the best solution for wipe RAM at shutdown!Im a newbie user and i want to implement this solution on my debian system at shutdown, i think its very easy because TAILS is based on debian! Does someone can put the procedures for get that on a debian box please?
i have installed ubuntu ultimate edition 10.04 in my toshiba c650 recently,however it is taking too long before it startup. 2 when i log off the cursor still remain untill all power have been discharged. what could be the problem
Without being paranoiac, it seems possible to keep the memory content for some minutes after shutdown and dump it accessing directly to the hardware.So how to fill the memory with constant or random pattern before halting? Is there a kernel option that I can give at boot time , or an other tool I can install from Debian/Ubuntu to achieve this ?
I have looked all over the place but I can't find if this is possible. I am running Debian 6 as a media server (SMB) and it is tied to a UPS, I used gnome power management to set up a low battery shutdown but this UPS also is powering another embedded computer. So, I was wondering if it was possible to have a script run (to log in and shut down the embedded system) before gnome power management shuts down the Debian server. I know I could probably get it to run on every shutdown, but I am looking for low power only.
I've been using linux for a few months. Recently I have installed debian jessie and I'm learning how to secure my laptop. I have installed
Code: Select allapt-get install sysv-rc-conf
to shutdown few services that I believe I don't need at boot which I found very useful. Among others I have deselected avahi-daemon, cups, cups-browsed, etc. The problem is that, after rebooting, when running:
Code: Select allnetstat -lntup
I still find 'avahi-daemon: r' and 'cupsd' running. I have tried
I'm using Debian Sid xfce on my lenovo laptop. When i try to shutdown, the screen always stays on (the fans turn off). It says "reached target shutdown", then this happens: [URL] .... and then it hangs. I have to press the power button to shut it down. (I have the same problem with reboot). I had the same issues with Jessie.
Things i tried so far and didn't work:
Code: Select allshutdown -h now shutdown -p now halt poweroff systemctl poweroff init 0
I edited /etc/default/grub and added the following options at "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT":
acpi=force, acpi=off*, acpi=noirq
*acpi=off: shutdown (not reboot) worked a few times but i didn't have wifi and power manager didn't seem to work
none of them worked..
I have no energy or wake up options at my BIOS.
I found out that i can normally reboot with the Alt + sysrq + REISUB key combination.
I'm running a Debian on a laptop (actually a netbook: Asus EEE 1001PX) as a cheap homeserver. However I'd like it to automatically "shutdown -h NOW" when I remove the AC plug (switch it off at the wall). Otherwise I have to ssh to it and call it myself, and that just sucks Can I somehow detect the removal of AC power and upon that run a script ?
on my netbook I've tried to make possible for my user to shutdown without needing a password. battery could run low when I'm not in front of it. Editing sudoers has allowed my user to shutdown the system, but Gnome still prompts me for the root password whenever root is logged in too. That's usually the case, because to avoid entering the root password multiple times whenever I need elevated privileges and not wanting to cache the root password, I keep a Root Terminal always open.
Anybody notice a slowdown in their boot times? I have had F11 (64 bit) running for about three days and it is taking twice as long to boot as when I first installed. I have not done much other than configure my wireless printer and change a few icons. I have Compiz cube effects running but I did that right away and it made no difference in my system speed. If anything I thought I should be booting faster after disabling a few things in the start up menu that I dont need.

I'm using Debian 8.2 from a very recent download of the latest NetInst (less than 2 weeks). I'm sort of new to Linux - More accurately, I've used Unix and Linux extensively in the past, so most of my knowledge is dated. In particular, the whole systemd / systemctl paradigm is completely new to me.
Problem: I've added an entry to /etc/fstab to mount a NAS drive as CIFS. When I do a system shutdown or reboot, the system hangs for 90 seconds trying to unmount the NAS. If I manually umount the NAS prior to shutdown / reboot everything works fine.
I've done a fair amount of investigation and web searches, but haven't found a fix yet. Apparently several people were encountering similar problems about a year back, and it seems pretty clear that the root cause what ordering of steps in the shutdown process, e.g., WLAN being turned off before unmounting filesystems. This seems to have been resolved for most users (no one is discussing it any more), but I'm now running into the same issue. Ugh.
I tried to add a shell script to /etc/rc0.d to umount the NAS first in the shutdown process. This had no effect. I assume this is because the new systemd / systemctl paradigm supplants the old /etc/rc model of runlevel control, though it is rather baffling (to me, at least) as to why /etc/rc* still exists if the system is no longer using it...?
Here's some things I'd like to try, but how to proceed:
1. In the new systemd / systemctl paradigm, how do I examine and change the ordering of steps in the shutdown process? I've seen a lot of documentation on systemd, but nothing tells me how to do what I used to be able to do with /etc/rc with a simple rename of a symlink. If I knew how to look at the order of shutdown and change that ordering, I'm fairly certain I could identify and resolve this issue.
2. Is there some other way to mount my CIFS NAS other than editing /etc/fstab? Is it possible that my manual edit to /etc/fstab is the cause of this issue? My research into systemd indicates that it IS supposed to be compatible with /etc/fstab. I have not yet found documentation describing how to mount a filesystem at boot WITHOUT editing /etc/fstab ...
