Debian :: First Time Installation Hangs On At Boot

Aug 23, 2015

I've got the last Debian stable release, the amd64-DVD-1 file , and copy it to my USB stick, using win32diskimager, as recommended in the installation guide.

It seems to go all fine, but when I rebooted, after entering the passphase it started a fsck "from util-linux 2.25.2", then it says:

"/dev/mapper/Debian-root: clean" and stuck there. i gave it quite a bit of time, tried to reinstall it and also got into the rescue mode of the installer,

Debian Installation :: Upgraded To Jessie 8.2 Now Boot Hangs

Dec 4, 2015

I had Debian 7.9 up and running like a charm until yesterday. Today I did the upgrade to 8.2, now boot hangs. I see 3 boot entries for the new kernel now -

Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (sysvinit)
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (recovery mode)

The latter 2 entries have no problem booting up. So do the previous kernel(3.2.0.4) entries. Only the first one hangs, for which I see these 6 lines on the console:

[ 0.214704] pnp 00:04: can't evaluate _CRS: 12298
Loading, please wait...
fsck from util-linux 2.25.2
/dev/mapper/myhost-root: clean, 198627/61000000 files, 2160052/24412 blocks
[ 0.047141] kvm: disabled by bios
[ 0.000985] kvm: disabled by bios

How can I make it boot up like others?

Debian Installation :: Boot Hangs After Successful Fresh Install

Nov 24, 2015

System is hanging during boot after a successful fresh install via netinstall disk. Never makes it to any GUI or prompt. However, it does still respond to CTRL-ALT-DEL (not completely frozen).Default debian installation with one exception - KDE checkbox was checked for installation. Everything else was default, with "use full disk with GRUB" option chosen.The boot process appears to hang during the service starts. It appears that the start job for "Create Static De..." is not actually ever completing. I don't know how to troubleshoot that any further than I have.

This is running on hardware, it is not a virtual machine. 480GB SSD, i7, 16GB of RAM, AMD R9 390 (I dunno if this is the problem, but it seems a likely culprit).There are no other disks attached. I have verified successful memtest completions (0 failures) and hard disk is intact and working fine (I have swapped for another disk, and the same thing happens as well).

My skill level with Linux is relatively low. I have proficiency using it and programming for it, but not much in the way of troubleshooting/ installation/ drivers.

Here is an album of "screenshots" (phone photos) of the boot sequence in debug: URL....I tried booting straight to console by removing "quiet" from boot options and changing to "text", but it does not alter the outcome in any discernible way.

Fedora :: Microcode - Boot Process Hangs At Startx Time

Sep 4, 2010

Ever since the kernel update to 2.6.34.6-47.fc13.x86_64, my boot process hangs at about startx time. I boot cleanly at runlevel 3 in either this or the previous 2.6.33.8 kernel. If I execute startx from here (in either kernel), the system hangs at the same place. During the early troubleshooting, I read in another thread (250929) about installing xorg-x11-drv-catalyst, which I did using yum. This led to the failure of the 2.6.33 kernel; yum remove did not fix this. I have carefully followed the instructions in the fglrx HOWTO (updated a week ago by Hlingler) as they relate to a PAE kernel (including reinstalling mesa-libGL), and that fixed earlier difficulties. Hence, I felt I needed a new thread.

dmesg tells me
Code:
microcode: CPU0: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
piix4_smbus 0000:00:14.0: SMBus Host Controller at 0xb00, revision 0
microcode: CPU1: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.00 .....

But the program itself reports
Code:
# microcode_ctl -h
This program is for updating the microcode on Intel processors belonging to the IA32 family - PentiumPro upwards (x86-64 included). It depends on the Linux kernel driver. The website urbanmyth.org/microcode (mentioned by yum info microcode_ctl) clearly indicates that Intel has taken over this microcodecode distribution, and suggests that it is no longer valid for AMD processors.

I found a reference to a kernel configuration flag CONFIG_MICROCODE_AMD (as a plausible subsititute for CONFIG_MICROCODE_INTEL) that possibly belongs in a script in /etc/init.d - but the above context leads me to suspect this is not true any more. In any event, those flags are not mentioned anywhere in my init.d scripts - in fact nowhere in the entire /etc tree. My microcode file exists, and is dated March 23. How do I get it installed? Or is this completely unrelated to my hanging boot problem, as suggested by the "platform microcode" line in the dmesg output? If so, where should I be looking?

CentOS 5 :: Udev Hangs On Boot For A Long Time, Suspect Pam_console_apply?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm hoping someone knows about this one... I'm running the latest CentOS 5.4 with kernel 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5 (x86_64).When I boot the machine, it gets to the udev starting bit, hangs for like 5 minutes, then prints a message "Failed, will continue in the background." Then it boots OK after that.I tried booting again with the kernel option (from grub) "udevdebug", and what I saw when it tried again was a million messages saying it was waiting for "/sbin/pam_console_apply" to return, but I guess it wasn't returning... ;) Again, after 5 minutes, it gave up and finished booting.Now, this host is an LDAP client.

I figured that may have something to do with it as it is likely that pam_console_apply tries to make an LDAP lookup, which is wrong, because networking hasn't even started yet. If I disable LDAP (by removing ldap lookups in nsswitch.conf), I get no pam_console_apply errors from udev and it boots quickly. But that's a bummer, I need LDAP on this box, and I don't want my boot time to be 7-8 minutes. ;)Presumably before, when LDAP was enabled and it waited 5 minutes and then notified me that it will "continue in the background", that it was eventually successful after networking started. LDAP otherwise works fine on this box, just like all the other servers we have.This is new behavior, I've not seen it with CentOS 5.3 and below. Has anyone seen this? Any hints on what I can do to avoid it? It seems like a pam bug or something, but I don't know for sure.

Debian Installation :: Can't Choose Jessie In Boot Time

Feb 29, 2016

Some thing quite bad happened to me , i installed debian jessie about 2 month ago. Today I wanted to try what a gnu/linux is like so I installed dragora 2.2 on one of my free partitions , (sda 1 is my debian root , sda2 is my debian home, I had sda4 which nothing was on it so i installed dragora on it. But something bad happened , during boot time you get this page which asks you what distro you want to enter in past I had just one choice and it was debian jessie, I expected after installing dragora I will see 2 distros on this page, but i get just 1 , and that's dragora ... but maybe i should mention this that when entering dragora i can access all my previous files , debian systemfile , debian home , they are still there but i can't enter debian jessie ...

Debian Installation :: All Partitions Mounted At Boot Time (Squeeze)

Dec 5, 2010

I am using Gnome and Squeeze. I am wondering if I have a problem of understanding, or a problem that I found with Gnome.

My configuration is with a 3 hard disk system.

disk1 (Debian)
disk2 (XP and Fedora)
Disk3 (W7 and a Data partition)

When I boot and log in, all partitions for disk2 and disk3 are mounted read-write. Only by going to command line am I able to unmount the drives with the following sequence

cd /media
umount *
umount *

I should be able to mount and umount a drive by providing or responding to a root password. But I am not given the option to present a password. My request is blocked.

I also do not want to see the drives remounted after a boot. I tried to find out how this was managed, but I was unable to discover the module and it's parameter list that controls or does this task.

Fedora Installation :: Hangs On Same Package Each Time?

Dec 7, 2009

I'm trying to install F12 on an iMac G4 (ppc). I partitioned the HD with OS X (10.4.11) on a 50 GB partition, left the remaining 26 GB free, then ran the installer. Everything seems to run very smoothly until it hits this package: sendmail-8.14.3-8.fc12.ppc. Then everything freezes. After this happened twice, I pulled a few applications out, thinking it might be a space issue, but it hung in exactly the same place next time. The install DVD passed the media check at the beginning of the install. Is there a way I could keep this package out of the install and, if it's needed, pull it in from the repositories later?

Ubuntu :: Booting Hangs From Time To Time (Lucid)?

May 3, 2010

I started out with Kubuntu RC, then installed ubuntu-desktop and updated all the way to the current state of packages.Anyway, from the moment I installed the RC, from time to time the boot splash appears, the dots light up/turn off and then the booting hags. No key seems to work.I the do a hard reset and everything works just fine.As not to open another thread:- how can I see the Ubuntu splash screen? (currently I can see the Kubuntu one)- how can I turn the splash off and have it boot in text mode?

Debian :: After Update Jessie Hangs During Boot

Oct 12, 2014

After my most recent update, the boot sequence hangs at:"a start job is running for Create Volatile files and directories" with a timer and no limit .. I let it go for 12 minutes, but nothing.It seems as long as this sequence remains, the boot process does not finish and just hangs here.I haven't been able to find anything specific to this. I currently cannot boot into this machine, though do have access to files via dual boot.

Debian :: System Won't Boot - Hangs On Gdm3

Jun 29, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze on a Dell Studio Laptop, and this morning my computer woke up and gnome was randomly frozen. I dismissed this as a random error and proceeded to hard-reboot the computer. It now will not boot at all. After multiple attempts, every time the boot process hangs on "Starting GNOME display manager gdm3." I even left it there for 2 hours while I was gone to see if it would get past the hang. It did not, and was still stopped at that same line when I got back. get my system back. I have a live CD available to perform maintenance if anyone has an idea of what's wrong.

Debian :: Boot Hangs - Waiting For Root Filesystem

Dec 9, 2010

I installed Debain Lenny as a dual boot with ubuntu 10.10. Chose not to install Grub legacy in the mbr or in any partition because I thought grub2 could handle it. All went well, updated grub2 in ubuntu and it found Debian, but when I try to boot into Debain it hangs at - waiting for root filesystem. I've searched, but can't fathom why this is happening, much less how to fix it without just reinstalling it.

Debian Configuration :: Boot Hangs With 4.2.6 Static Kernel And Encrypted LVM

Dec 7, 2015

I use a static compiled kernel and a fully encrypted disk apart from a boot partition. I have recompiled and installed kernels many times. When I tried with the latest kernel from Testing, 4.2.6, the system will not boot. Not only that but the previous kernel now does not boot. However, a stock modular kernel does boot. The static kernel hangs at:

Code: Select allVolume group "dk" not found
Cannot process volume group dk
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory
WARNING: Failed to connect to lvmetad. Falling back to internal scanning.
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
/run/lvm/lvmetad.socket: connect failed: No such file or directory

[Code] ....

And after giving the password the boot continues successfully. How to diagnose it further?

Debian Multimedia :: Boot Hangs At Login Screen And Nothing Works

Mar 26, 2011

I'm running an LMDE install, but with the Sid repositories.Everything has been fine until yesterday's updates, after which I can't boot normally. The boot hangs at the login screen, and nothing works - not the mouse, the keyboard, the touchpad, nothing, and it requires holding the power switch to get out. I can boot to a root recovery console, but networking doesn't work at all there. I can run startx there and get an X desktop as root, and networking still doesn't work. No wireless, no ethernet, no nothing. From the recovery console I can run shutdown, and when prompted for a password, can enter Ctrl-D, which immediately drops me back to X, to the normal login screen, which now works normally, and I get a normal X session in which everything works. This is the same for all installed kernels, including 3 versions of the Liquorix kernel and the standard Squeeze kernel. It would appear to be something in my settings in /home, but I can't find anything that looks suspicious. I ran smxi again after booting through the root console, without any improvement.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Hangs With USB & HDD Boot

Jul 3, 2010

I think I've got a graphics/sound compatibility issue--both are onboard, but have no idea what to do. 10.04 will run in recovery low-graphics mode but won't load otherwise.

I have an old Gateway MX6030 / MA2 from 2005, 1.4Ghz Celeron, 1024 MB RAM. It had 9.04 on it. I got it out, thinking I could use it to store and remotely access research files for Mendeley and backup other data from my primary machines. I was running into wireless connectivity programs, so rather than fix it I figured I'd upgrade to through to 10.04 and plugged it into the router. 9.10 was a little choppy with the sounds when booting up, but worked. 10.04 won't boot properly. It gets to the Ubuntu splash screen with the little dots, which all turn red, then goes straight to a grey screen. The hard disk stops thrashing, and that's it.

If I hit ESC to bring up the grub menu, I can enter recovery mode and use the low-graphics startup to get into 10.04. Sound is still choppy on startup, but wireless, video, etc. all work. I tried to use a USB bootdisks with both 10.04 and Xubuntu 10.04 and got the same issue. The Ubuntu live boot can get to the menu but freezes after I make a selection. Xubuntu just brings up a low-res "XUBUNTU" image and freezes right after that. Hard disk stops turning, and the machine stops accessing the USB disk. Nothing happens.

Is there a way I can access 10.04 low graphics as the default boot? Is this a driver issue? This is a beginner question, obviously, and really, my goal here is just to be able to access the machine remotely so I can keep files for Mendeley in a single place rather than across two machines and three OSes. I don't know if I have the time or patience to learn how set up another machine as an FTP server to try and install through that route.

Installation :: Ubuntu On USB Hangs On Boot / Fix This?

Dec 8, 2010

I loaded Ubuntu onto my USB using the USB installer, and then attempted to create a persistent drive (>4GB) according to the link :http://www.pendrivelinux.com/create-...per-partition/

But when I boot from the USB it hangs. I am new to Ubuntu, so I cannot give a lot of details.

When booting from the USB, it goes to the setup screen where I select boot from the USB. A list of commands appear on the screen (it's too quick,to read) and then it arrives at the intro screen with the Ubuntu symbol. On this screen it hangs.

Any suggestions on how to fix this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Hangs At Boot From USB?

Dec 25, 2010

I wrote the ISO to a USB drive I had using the Universal USB Installer, and I put it into my new Acer Aspire One D255 netbook, and set it up so that it would be the first thing it booted to. I got past the ISOLinux loading screen, and now it's just hanging at a black screen with a bit of text:

Intel(r)PineView PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS
Build Number: 2001 Accelerated PC 14.34 03/01/2010 02:34:31
DECOMPILATION OR DISASSEMBLY PROHIBITED
Copyright (C) 2000-2003 Intel Corp. All Rights Reserved.

Anyway, it's just sitting there. The USB stick isn't doing anything, it's not flashing or jittering, it's just slowly pulsating like it usually is when it's not doing anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Newer Kernel Updates AFTER 2.6.32-17 Has A Randomness At Boot Time Whether The System Will Completely Boot Or Not?

Jul 26, 2010

I've been having a problem on my AMD based machine, 4cpu, gigabyte ga-ma78gm-s2h Mobo, 8GB mem, two 2 terabyte Sata HDs.One thing I've found is that any kernel after 2.6.32-17 has a randomness at boot time whether the system will completely boot or not.

For instance just today I downloaded and installed 2.6.32-24

It fails to boot (I've tried cold boot, warm boot).Running its repair also fails to completely boot.My experience is that if I keep trying it "may" eventually boot but I believe there was some change after 2.6.32-17-generic that's causing the problem.Because as with 2.6.32.23... which also fails to complete bootup many times... eventually my guess is that 2.6.32.24 will also boot "sometimes".But why does 2.6.32.17 always boot for me? Something changed and its not my setup.

Fedora Installation :: F10 New Install - Hangs Up During Boot

Jan 19, 2009

I have just completed a dual boot installation of FC10. The install was done from CD's I downloaded from the Fedora website. The installation (seemed to have) went fine, and the machine still boots into XP if selected from the menu. The Fedora installation does not complete the boot process. I have three bars that move across the bottom of the screen, and the Fedora 10 graphic tuns white, and then the system hangs. I have let it sit at this screen for as long as 30 minutes. The screen will blank occasionally, but returns to the same place if I hit a key on the keyboard.

I have it installed on an old HP E800 netserver, running dual P3-866mHz processors, 2GB ram, a ATI Radeon 7000 video card, and three 36GB SCSI drives, non-raid. I know FC10 will run on this machine, as I have a friend running it on another E800 without any problems. This machine does have on-board video that is disabled only by plugging a different video card in (Phoenix BIOS).

Fedora Installation :: X Hangs From Cold Boot

Nov 24, 2009

This is one of those newbie questions about where I look to find error messages so that I can understand what the issues might be. My Fedora 12 setup invariably always hangs whenever I login following a cold boot. I login to x/g-nome, the screen clears and the initial background appears and then that's it.

I've been getting out of this by switching to another TTY (CTRL + ALT + 2), login as root and issue "shutdown -r now". System re-boots and I can login normally. I can see a stream of messages, I think relating to x scroll up the screen rapidly after the shutdown command. I'm not fast enough on the Pause button to read them. My question(s) then is... is there somewhere I can look to see what those messages might be? From the symptoms described initially, anyone have any thoughts on what the issue is likely to be?

Fedora Installation :: Boot Hangs After Upgrade From F11 To F12

Dec 19, 2009

I have just upgraded my F11 x86_64 system using the DVD ISO.

After rebooting as requested:
1) Cupsd fails to start - it can't find libaudit.so.1 (this doesn't worry me in itself).
2) Boot process proceeds until starting hald. This gets an OK response, but then the process hangs. No further output appears on the console. Pressing [ENTER] just causes a blank line to appear on the console. Pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL causes a reboot, and the same symptoms re-occur.

I'm tempted to boot with the rescue disk, save a few critical data directories, then start afresh with a clean install, but is there anything I can do to salvage the upgrade?

Fedora Installation :: F13 Live CD Hangs During Boot ?

May 28, 2010

I currently dual-boot Windows Vista and Suse 11.2 on my Gateway desktop machine. I'd like to try out Fedora in a triple-boot situation.

My trouble is that the F13 Live CD hangs during boot. I've checked the hashes of the downloaded ISO files, and done burns on multiple media. During booting with the Live CD, my box hangs and I have to use the physical power button to turn off the box.

I've tried the 64-bit KDE spin (my preferred choice), the 64-bit GNOME version, and also the 32-bit KDE spin, and all of them hang at the same point. Removing the "quiet" boot option shows that it hangs after setting up my built-in card reader. When I installed Suse 10.3 on this same machine, I had to use the flags "acpi=off" and "brokenmodules=pata_it821x". Would the syntax be the same if I wanted to try with those boot options with the F13 Live CD?

Using the ISO files in VirtualBox inside my working Suse install works just fine.
