Ubuntu :: Udev Triggers Add-rule Multiple Times?

May 2, 2011

On Ubuntu 10.04 I would like to setup udev to execute a backup script when a specific USB drive is inserted. Udev detects the USB drive, but my script is executed 7 times instead of just once. Can't figure out what's wrong.

My udev rules file:

/etc/udev/rules.d# cat 20-stick.rules
ACTION=="add", ATTRS{vendor}=="Kingston", ATTRS{model}=="DataTraveler G2 ", RUN="/usr/local/bin/"
Dummy backup script: connecting USB drive results in 7 times date written to /tmp/test

Ubuntu :: How To Decrease 10.04 Boot Times

Aug 9, 2010

There seems to be quite a craze about reducing the Ubuntu boot times to 10 seconds. I never really reached the 10 second mark.. for me it was more like 30 seconds from when I selected Ubuntu in GRUB to when I was prompted to type in the password in GDM. First of all, is this what is meant by boot time? Secondly, I know this already is quite a good 'boot' time, but just for the sake of tinkering around, is it possible to reduce the time that elapses between the GRUB menu and GDM?

Ubuntu :: Slow Boot Times From 9.10 To 10.10?

Oct 23, 2010

I'm running 10.10 on an IBM Thinkpad R60 with 3GB RAM. I did a clean install of 9.10 and 10.04, and recently upgraded to 10.10. With all three, I'm noticing mething rather strange; after passing the PC's BIOS screen, I get a flashing cursor for about 20-30 seconds before Ubuntu starts booting. When I did the clean installs, I completely erased the hard drive, so I'm not sure what's causing it. The hard drive activity light is on when this happens, as well. It's very strange, as I have an old Dell Dimension 4550 with a slower hard drive and less RAM than the Thinkpad...yet it boots up faster, with no flashing cursor.

Fedora Installation :: 12 Hanging On Boot (most Times)?

Nov 26, 2009

I have just installed Fedora12 x86 64. On booting more often than not it hangs just before completing the login screen.I will try some of the options in the wiki. In the mean time has anyone else experienced this and resolved it.The odd thing is although the keyboard is not on, (num lock light goes out as boot starts and only comes back on if it has fully booted), the mouse will move around the screen but the click has no effect.Note the same behaviour was shown on the x86 64 live cd which I needed to install to enable me to create a bootable usb stick from the x86 64 DVD.

Ubuntu :: Most Times After Boot Up The Display Is Black?

Nov 8, 2010

This little guide is for anyone with an HP Touchsmart Tm2 series running Ubuntu 10.04 and above. PLEASE NOTE: These workarounds, solutions, and tips have been tested and verified to work on an HP Touchsmart Tm2-2050us running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. Installation: There are no problems I have experienced with installation except for the display not working on the live USB/CD images occasionally, this can be fixed by simply closing the display lid, and reopening it (this usually has to be done at least 2 or 3 times). Display: Most times after boot up, the display is black. A workaround for this is closing the lid and reopening it (repeat until the display works). Another reported solution is as follows:

1) Open a terminal
2) Type:

sudo nano /etc/rc.local 3) Add this to the bottom of the file (this disables the ATI part of the hybrid graphics card):
echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch
4) Press CTRL-X (to exit), Y (to save changes), and ENTER/RETURN to accept the file name.
5) Reboot
Note: This solution is also reported to increase battery life.

Trackpad: It may seem that the right click button is disabled, but it isn't. To right click, you must tap the very bottom right corner of the trackpad. Also, by default the trackpad does not have multi-touch enabled (even though it is capable of it). A reported solution for this is:

1) Open a terminal
2) Type:

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-two-finger-scroll-touchsmart-tm2.conf
3) Add this to the bottom of the file:
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "enable synaptics SHMConfig"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"

Ubuntu :: Second HDD Improve Boot Time And Access Times ?

Jun 26, 2010

I managed to install a second hand 10Gb HDD on my old P4. I want to see how I can use this extra disk to speed up Ubuntu 10.04 if possible.

I installed my swap onto this second drive but since I never use swap I can't see any real improvement. Next, I'm considering the creation of a new partition on that disk that would handle /tmp. Could that improve access times?

Finally, what other tricks could I use with this 2nd HDD to speed things up?

Ubuntu Servers :: Extraordinarily Fast Boot Times In VM?

Nov 1, 2010

At work, we use two very powerful servers to host a series of VMs to do some heavy-lifting analytical work. Part of my job has been to evaluate a variety of different virtualization environments, including changing the host OS (or dom0 kernel for Xen), changing the platform (KVM, Xen, ESXI, etc.), and changing the guest OS types.

I noticed a number of behaviors that Ubuntu exhibited that set it apart (almost always in a positive way) from the other OSes. Most astounding though was that when an Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 server VM was booted from an Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 server host (that is, same version of Host OS and Guest OS) in KVM, the guest boots in roughly 2 seconds. At least, the guest boots faster than the VNC connection can initialize.

I'm certainly not complaining, but I can't for the life of me figure out how this could be possible. I understand that the Upstart init daemon is very good about startup times.

Ubuntu :: Restart Several Times The Bios And Boot Loader?

Jun 17, 2011

First off, i have ran 10.10 for the past 6 months without any problems. Then last week i decided to try 11.04. I installed using Wubi. Now the problem is the computer only freezes when I am using a web browser (firefox). it completely freezes where I can do nothing, so I will kill it with the power button. When i try to restart, not even the bios will boot up, just a blank screen with the num/caps lock key flashing.

But after trying to restart several times the bios and boot loader will eventually come up and will start up normally until the same thing happens. I decided to reinstall using wubi so when i tried to boot itno windows, the windows partition was corrupted. I fully restored windows and installed 11.04 with wubi again only to have the same freezing problems.

I will be trying 10.10 again and see if it just a 11.04 issue, but thought this problem should be out there if anyone else has a similar experience

Software :: Debian Freeze 2-3 Times A Day / Fix It?

Nov 19, 2010

Since I've installed Debian Squeeze, it freezes 2-3 times a day.
Usually the mouse pointer stops working and the screen remains unchanged, but sometimes it become white or distorted and the system halts.

Video is an older Ati 200m chipset (x300) with radeon driver and shared memory.
OS is Debian Squeeze x64

I've tried to modify xorg's settings. I've tried with and without KMS and compositing, different kernel, UXA/EXA/XAA acceleration, etc.
Maybe it was better with XAA, so the freezes reduced to an average of one per a day.

The version number of xserver-radeon-video-ati is 1:6.13.1-2-squeeze1.

The experimental repository has a little bit newer version of the radeon driver, but it depends on other xorg components, so it isn't simple to install and I don't know how to revert to testing/squeeze if I try to install it.

Debian :: Desktop Freezes Randomly Two Times

Feb 17, 2010

I have used debian in the past and I am pretty comfortable with it but I have been having an issue. My desktop has randomly frozen two times. All my applications are still running though. For example, I was still able to talk on skype with my friend. However, all I can do is move my mouse but I can not click on anything forcing me to restart. Here are some things that might be helpful:

-I was using compiz both times (I am assuming this might be why. however, I have used compiz on ubuntu and I have never had a problem)
-I use an ATI graphics card
-It froze the first time when I accidently tried to extract the skype install deb.
-It froze the second time when I pressed close in software sources
-Since I have installed debian, I have installed compiz, compiz effect packages, removed openoffice, installed opera, installed google chrome, installed flash, and installed skype.

Does anyone know why my desktop crashed?

Ubuntu :: Netbook Boots Into Setup Multiple Times Before Boot Or Freezes

Jun 4, 2011

I actually have it installed on two of my computers. One is an older Acer Aspire 3100 that dual-boots windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04, and an Acer Aspire ONE that has Ubuntu 11.04 as main OS. Before Ubuntu, (even currently) I'm a MAC user, and i'm really liking Ubuntu. On my 3100 it works just fine except the screen flicker on wake, but a quick reboot will solve that.

On my Aspire ONE i've had to re-install ubuntu multiple times. (we're talking 5 or 6 in the last month) Sometimes, it'll boot up to absolutely nothing. One time I got a weird error message everytime it booted. The last install froze up a lot, and eventually would only start to boot into setup. I reinstalled Ubuntu, again and it worked until I shut it off. Boot back up, same thing. Threw me right into setup. I was able to get around it after 5 or so tries of rebooting, hitting ALT F11 and somehow got into ubuntu recovery, but loaded normally. I'm using it now and it's working great currently.

Specs on the ONE

1.5GB Ram
8GB SSD (could this be the culprit?)
ATOM (1.8 or 1.6) GHz Processor.

Halfway through this fiasco, I put windows XP on it and used it solid for 3 days without any of the mentioned above issues.

Debian Installation :: Long Format Times Needs An Indicator?

Dec 3, 2010

As this was my first Debian installation with a 500gig drive, I chose to use the defaults. Debian announced that it was going to format the drive as EXT3, and commenced,I waited 3-4 minutes and only saw a very steady on disk active light. I presumed that the format should have ended sooner, and therefore, believing that the installer was in a loop, I rebooted and retried the installation again.

This time I let it run for the full duration, about 6-7 minutes (I also have a terabyte drive), for Debian, and after the longest time, the installer proceeded to the next step. The drive format was not in a loop.With todays large disks costing under $75.00 per terabyte, it makes sense to put a propellor or other indication on the text or graphic screen to show that the installer is really working at formatting. My screen showed an unchanging bargraph pegged at 31%.

Debian :: Running Same Process Multiple Times(from Another Account) / An Instance Of Newsbeuter Is Already Running Error?

Aug 6, 2010

Sometimes I connect to my Debian box from another computer (using SSH on Cygwin or Linux), and once ina while I want to run some console apps. And sometimes some of these apps might complain about "another intance, Error: an instance of newsbeuter is already running (PID: 2496)". Is there a work around for this issue at all(without killing the original instance") ? The reason I do not want to kill the app because there might be 2 users connected to the same machine that might be using the same app.

Debian Configuration :: Automount External USB HD Using Udev

Jan 23, 2011

I have a problem copying my udev rules from other distro to another pc running debian. My box is running debian without any DE and I want my USB disks to be automounted based on the label; I believe udev is the nicest way to do this task.

Anyways : my rules are (copied from archlinux wiki btw)
cat /etc/udev/rules.d/92-my-media-automount.rules
# vim:enc=utf-8:nu:ai:si:et:ts=4:sw=4:ft=udevrules:
# /etc/udev/rules.d/92-my-media-automount.rules
# Only work on sd*
KERNEL!="sd[a-z]*", GOTO="my_media_automount_end"
ACTION=="add", PROGRAM!="/sbin/blkid %N", GOTO="my_media_automount_end" .....

I notice the directory is made successfully up inserting the usb HD, but the mount doesn't succeed. If I manually execute above command, the mount goes ok.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Seeing Every SAN Lun 4 Times?

Mar 28, 2011

I have bumped into a rather bizarre problem on a redhat system at work:I have mapped 10 LUNS to a server.The server has 2 HBAs, but the luns were mapped only to 1 HBA,and only one HBA is connected with a fibre cable.Every lun has only 1 path,the storage array management software (hitachi storage)confirms this.However, instead of 10 luns, I am seeing 40 luns!

- this is the output of the command ll /dev/sd*:
ll /dev/sd*

Slackware :: Set Some Times - 0?

What I mean by this are two things:

1. When the computer boots and asks me to pick Linux or another operating system, how do I change the time down, since I don't really need 2 minutes to choose the only operating system I have...

2. When the computer shuts down, and gives me 30 seconds to cancel or not (this is with a GUI), how do I reduce that time to 0?

Debian Configuration :: Udev / Systemd Change Some Rules In 8.0

Apr 18, 2016

I have SSD drives without SCT support, because of this I want to tune /sys/block/device-name/device/timeout in order to force mdadm put these drives offline. So, I can see my drive like this:


Where can I tune /sys/block/device-name/device/timeout from 30 to 7 sec only for these drive? I don't want to use rc.local.

Can I create right udev rules for it in /etc/udev/rules.d?

I want to avoid any conflict with /lib/udev/rules.d.

Code: Select all# udevadm monitor --environment --udev
monitor will print the received events for:
UDEV - the event which udev sends out after rule processing

UDEV  [9302.549485] add      /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.2/0000:03:00.0/host0/target0:0:0 (scsi)

Debian Configuration :: Udev Rules To Change R/W Permissions?

Mar 28, 2011

I'm trying to allow non-root account to use avrdude to program mucrocontrollers. There are many articles online about how to do that, but it seems not to work for me. Every time i try to execute avrdude it says "permission denied". Here's "$ udevadm info --name=/dev/bus/usb/002/011 --attribute-walk" says looking at device '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb2/2-1':



However, after restarting udev, replugging the device, even rebooting the computer I still get "permission denied". The Vendor and Product match, so what's the problem?

Networking :: UDP Thrashing (140 Times Every Second)

Jan 12, 2010

My ADSL router NAT's any computer behind it here at home. I have a PC or two a Sun ultra10 and ultra5 and E450 etc.

The problem is my PC reports via "tcpdump -i eth0" that
22:54:47.035683 IP > UDP, length 1292
is going on 140 times every second.

How do I prevent this from continuing and why is it happening? If possible I don't want to invoke iptables as my NAT router does a fine firewall job.
