Debian Installation :: System Appear To Hang At Different Points During Install

Aug 28, 2010

i reached step six where it states "6. When the root and swap partitions are formatted the base installation will begin. Note that your system may appear to hang at different points during the install but it hasn't. Just be patient." I have been staring at a blank blue screen with this blinking cursor at the bottom for 30 minutes and i was just wondering how much more "patient" will it take. for some system details. the system is clean / fist time run and anything installed on it.

Debian :: System Hang When Shutting Down Printer?

Jul 8, 2011

I have a strange problem on my system. When I turn off printer, system hang. Gdm/X exit and I can see a terminal screen with a lot of info (but I can not capture it, except taking a photo). I must press reset button. It's not all times, but at least 50% I shutdown printer. I was looking logs and I can not see any relevant. Maybe this (copy some sections of /var/log/messages, remove other not revelant):

Jul 7 19:43:34 dcr64 kernel: [341172.052076] usb 1-8: new high speed USB device number 7 using ehci_hcd
Jul 7 19:43:34 dcr64 kernel: [341172.185255] usb 1-8: New USB device found, idVendor=03f0, idProduct=4412
Jul 7 19:43:34 dcr64 kernel: [341172.185260] usb 1-8: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3


Sometimes I turn on printer to get a photocopy and turn off later, and system hand, so, it's not necesary to print or scan to get this error.

Debian Configuration :: System Hang On X Logout

Jun 23, 2015

If I shutdown from X the system hangs and I have to yank out the power cord. Same on logout.

ctrl+alt+f1 hangs for a few minutes and then starts a terminal; which does not respond to the keyboard.

There are no tty.conf files in /etc/init .

But inittab looks normal to me and includes tty (1-6)

Executing init 6 from a terminal in X will reboot the system

I was thinking this might be a dbus issue, but I am not sure. I also understand some recent issues exist with SysRq sequences. May be a video card issue,,,

Other than normal package upgrades the only changes were a recent change from a VGA to HDMI cable. I can't see why that would matter

Linux Lugh 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.68-1+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Debian Configuration :: Fglrx System Hang On Screen Suspend

Aug 18, 2015

My system is hanging on screen suspension... And its not the usual hang on "sleep" or others similars, it will happen by only having the screen on stand-by ( eg xset +dpms)...

If I leave for a while the screen will shutdown as expected but computer will completely hang after an indefinite time, it will not respond to outside connections and the will be spinning faster than usual...

Only workaround is to have the screen power save option disabled, in my case, on the KDE settings...

I have tried the most common solution to have "nomodeset" as a kernel option to disable mode setting, but this doesn't seem to work...

Also tried to forcebly reproduce the issue with Code: Select allxset force dpms standby/suspend/off but nothing happens like that...

This issue also only appears with the fglrx driver, open-source works well.

Debian Configuration :: Fresh Install - Using LVM For Mount Points

Feb 6, 2011

I'll start a fresh installation of a debian stable server and I would like to use LVM on this. So, I started to read lots of documents about LVM and found different flavors on partitioning with it. I'm thinking in a partition schema which might use LVM for those mount points that tends to grow in time, for instance:

/boot (primary partition)
/ (primary partition)
/home (lvm)
/usr (lvm)
/var (lvm)
swap (lvm)

Am I right on this schema?

Debian Hardware :: Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse System Hang When Pairing

Aug 1, 2015

Just picked up a Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse.Whenever I try to pair it, my system hangs and I have to hard power it down. The mouse is Bluetooth 4.0, but my Bluetooth connectivity is provided by my Intel Wireless 3160 card which does support Bluetooth 4.0.I'm using Blueman as a front end, and one other thing of note is that it shows as "Unknown" after a scan.If I need to return it, I need to return it, but it seems like a good mouse and I'd like to keep it if I can make it work.

I've took this out of syslog:

Debian Installation :: AMD64 Hang On Startup?

Oct 9, 2010

I've just installed Debian AMD64 on my main box (Intel Q6600, Ati HD4770, Asus P5K) using the DVD install. It boots, but hangs when it tries starting the graphical interface. No reports, no commandline, nothing at all - a nice black screen and completely unresponsive system.

Debian x86 works with no problems.

Fedora Installation :: F12 64bit On Optiplex 740 - Hang On First Boot After Install?

Feb 15, 2010

New install of Fedora 12 64-bit from DVD on an Optiplex 740 (AMD) with 8GB memory I had to use the mem= option to get the install past the EDD probe, but it seemed to install successfully. Now on boot it goes all the way through the "filling icon" progress meter, then switches to a completely black screen with an X pointer cursor that responds to mouse movement, but nothing else happens. Ctrl-Alt-F{2-5} do not switch to a console login, so the system's inaccessible.

Ubuntu Installation :: Initial Install Seems To Hang For Very Long Time

Nov 19, 2010

I'm attempting to install Kubuntu on a new laptop but seem to be having some strange issues. It's a Dell Latitude E5410 with 160GB HDD, 2GB RAM and Intel Core i5-520M(2.4GHz). I'm trying to install Kubuntu 10.10. When I restart the machine and boot from the CD for an initial install it seems to hang for a VERY long time. It will eventually get to the boot options (after hours) but seems sluggish. Once the install gets going everything seems decent except for that I can't seem to get it to finish. I know the CD is good since I used it to get Kubuntu on 2 desktops and another laptop in the last 48 hours. I've also burned another CD just to make sure. The checksum was spot on. Does anyone know what I can do to get this remedied?

Fedora Installation :: Cloned F11 Install Refuses To Boot (kernel Hang)?

Jun 17, 2009

I installed F11 x86 from the DVD onto one of my machines using a total of 4 partitions:

1. /boot
2. /
3. /home
4. swap

I then created an image of the first 3 partitions with fsarchiver and restored it onto a second machine (with different hardware). Grub was loaded onto the second machine as well without a problem. The new cloned install will get past grub fine but the kernel hangs. After removing 'rhgb quiet' from the boot options, I can see that the last message outputted to the console is something about the PS/2 mouse - this doesn't make sense as the mouse is working perfectly fine.

Additionally, I can still reboot using ctrl-alt-delete so the kernel/CPU must still be responsive. I have tried troubleshooting the various pieces of hardware, so I'm guessing it's something with the clone. All the cloned filesystems appear to be fully intact; the partition UUID's are all the same. I've even tried changing the UUID's both in grub and /etc/fstab to hardcoded /dev/sdaX , but this does not fix anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot With Win7 On Raid0 - Install 10.04 It Will Hang And Eventually Errors Out?

Apr 18, 2010

New to Linux and am wanting to install ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04 on a single separate 80gb drive. I have Windows installed on 2 80gb drives in Raid0 (nvidia controller) .I have installed 9.10 but Win7 will not load from the bootloader : gives me the error invalid signature. I've looked around and tried a few things to get it to load with no success.. is the Raid0 the issue?

If I try to install 10.04 it will hang and eventually errors out, I believe on the raid drive because it comes up with dev/mapper/nvidia_hhfbdccf1..

Networking :: Data Acquisition System For Vehicle - Access Points

Aug 21, 2010

A friend of mine is building a data acquisition system for a vehicle that will wander through city streets and roads and perhaps even off-road places. At the end of the day, back at the garage, the data must be downloaded and, if needed, upload an update of the data acquisition program. The network is wpa_supplicant, and it was chosen an USB device, because the original computer did not had any wireless interface and do not have any other possibility. The problem is that, when the vehicle comes back, very often there is no access to the on-board computer, or the connection lasts just a few minutes.

The computer must be reinitialized so the connection is back and the scripts run completely. Sometimes the connection is made, but the guys are so used to restart the computer that they do it anyhow, and then the connection does not come up, they have to restart it again.I have being thinking, as the vehicle drives all around, perhaps finding some access points along the day, if this connection trials - and failures - are messing up something. Or, the connection instability as the vehicle approaches the garage, could be driving his scripts mad?

Debian Installation :: System Going Down - Install Fails Every Time

Apr 27, 2015

When I try to install Debian 8 on my laptop I get this rather odd error. The install fails every time. I've managed to get as far as choosing which Desktop Environment I want and the shortly after it shuts off. It shows 4 messages

Code: Select allSystem is going down!
Sending Termsignal
Sending Killsignal
Requesting Machine Poweroff

The machine I'm trying to install on is a Gateway NV53, 4gb of RAM, AMD Athlon II x64.

At first I thought it might be my disc so I burnt another DVD using the 4.3GB DVD image I had downloaded. I checked the disc and it verified with the image and so I tried again with the same results as above. Any clue what might be causing this? I'm sure it isn't my hardware, Arch has been running fine for almost 6 months and never seemed to care.

Debian Installation :: USB Install 'Operating System Not Found'

Jun 7, 2011

I've decided to move to Debian because I have noticed Ubuntu releases getting progressively more unstable.I am following the official Debian installation guide. Just did this with the Debian 6.0 Net install .iso: 4.3.1. Preparing a USB stick using a hybrid CD or DVD image. Debian CD and DVD images can now be written directly a USB stick, which is a very easy way to make a bootable USB stick. Simply choose a CD or DVD image that will fit on your USB stick. See Section 4.1,Official Debian GNU/Linux CD-ROM Sets to get a CD or DVD image.

Alternatively, for very small USB sticks, only a few megabytes in size, you can download the mini.iso image from the netboot directory (at the location mentioned in Section 4.2.1,Where to Find Installation Image).The CD or DVD image you choose should be written directly to the USB stick, overwriting its current contents.

Debian Installation :: Can't Install Base System: Files Corrupt?

Jul 24, 2010

I downloaded the first Lenny DVD for amd64, wrote it but on trying the install on my laptop (Gateway NV5389u) I cant get past the installing base system step: I get an error that some files are corrupt / cannot be read from the DVD. I am wondering whether there's a way I can download a minimal version or just the files needed for the base system installation then use the same DVD to install the packages, coz I have a terribly slow internet connection it took me a whole 2 days to download, and I surely cant stand any more of it.

Debian Installation :: Install Squeeze On Triple-boot System?

Oct 28, 2010

'rolling' release as redoing install /upgrade every 6 months is getting 'old' My machine is triple boot

Hard drive is 320 GB
Windows 7 - 167 GB
Ubuntu - Maverick - 73 GB
Ubuntu - Natty - testing version - 65 GB

I do not want to screw up my 'grub' as it's been trashed a couple of times recently and had to re-install everything, which went great with install setting up partitions. I am not sure where 'grub' is installed to. I did install Windows 7 first then let installer split hard drive in half to put Ubuntu on then while installing my second Ubuntu, I let installer split the Ubuntu partition in half, hence the 167 GB Windows and the 2 smaller partitions for Ubuntu.I was thinking to maybe let Debian install over my Maverick install. Would that work and not mess up my Grub and cause me to not be able to boot and have to fix the drama?

Debian Installation :: Encrypted LVM Install - No Root File System Detected

Jun 1, 2013

I'm a long time user of Debian, but I'm having trouble with my partitioning process. Here is where I currently stand:

I am installing the latest Wheezy build. I am trying to install debian with an encrypted LVM that spans two hard disks.

My partitioning layout is as:

1. /home
2. /root
3. swap
4. /boot

I then added partitions 1, 2 and 3 to a physical volume group. I then took that physical volume group and added it to a logical volume. Then I encrypted the logical volume, leaving the /boot partition untouched. I was under the assumption that the only partition the system needed free to reach the loading of the LVM is the /boot partition, as it holds the files necessary for booting. But when I attempt to finalize the disk, it gives an error stating, "No root file system detected". That would be an issue as it is currently sitting inside the encrypted LV. Am I wrong in including the root partition in the encrypted LV?

What is the best way of having as little of my file system non-encrypted as possible while still allowing a proper boot?

Debian Installation :: USB Stick Install Fails - Missing Operating System

Nov 18, 2014

I want to try Debian on my Asus Eee netbook and I'm trying to follow the instructions in URL... But just copying the ISO file to the USB drive then trying to boot from it doesn't seem to work. I just get "Missing operating system".

The Eee can use an external optical drive as well but that failed also. I'm sure I need to do more to prepare the USB drive or CD? Can I prepare the USB Drive or CD on my Windows system, and make it boot on the netbook (which has another Linux distro on it now)?

Debian Installation :: Install Wheezy On Any System With Either AMD / ATI 68xx Or 69xx Card?

Aug 26, 2011

Has anyone had any luck in trying to install wheezy (latest testing snapshot available) on any system with either a AMD/ATI 68xx or 69xx card?All goes well in the install, but on reboot, all that is seen is a "_" and no text, and it hard locks.I am pretty sure this is a conflict with the video card drivers that get installed by default (and which should be blacklisted), but I have no idea how to fix it.The recovery mode don't work either, it is the same "_" with no text, and it ends up hard locking. There is no chance at getting access to a console at all.

Fedora :: System Hang On External HD - 10

Aug 4, 2009

I am running fedora 10 on my laptop. I use a usb Western digital "MyBook" 500Gb (ext3). I am using this hard drive since more than 1 year now. Lately I run into a single problem when I read a precise file. The laptop becomes totally unresponsive and I have to manually shutdown the computer. After start-up I can find that the /var/log/message file of my previous session has grown very quickly with "[sdb] Sense Key : No Sense [current]" and "[sdb] Add. Sense: No additional sense information" messages.

I found various similar question on the web, most of the answer were hardware dependent and kernel related. I tried various kernel hoping that my specific problem would be fixed in the next one but with no success (all the kernel since fedora 10 release and two testing one: and, I don't have access to a Fedora 11 machine.

I replaced the usb cable and check that the power supply was working correctly.

I am joining part of /var/log/message and the results of lsusb (related to the external hard drive).

Ubuntu :: Applications Hang And System Freezes?

Jan 28, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61p with 2GB RAM. When I was on Ubuntu 10.04, one day suddenly Azureus hung at the 'loading plugin' screen as it begins. I had to hard reboot my system and it(Azureus) never worked after that so I removed it. Then after a couple of months same thing happened with Adobe Acrobat reader. As soon as I opened any pdf and started to scroll, it hung. System didn't respond and had to hard reboot. I moved to foxit reader Then I upgraded to 10.10 and now mplayer hangs occasionally if I try to switch it to full screen. System stops responding totallyn Where to begin debugging from ? I can't figure out any pattern or any way to reproduce it. I haven't tried Acrobat reader and Azureus on 10.10
