Debian :: New Install Running Slow - System Freezes Every 30 Seconds Or So

Sep 26, 2015

So i just finally installed Debian Jessie OS, replacing Ubuntu. But now it is running extremely slow. It's not internet connection. The internet speed is running fine (Videos load quickly), but it's like the system freezes every 30 seconds or so. A video can be fully loaded but still stops and starts constantly. Just browsing the internet, or non-internet things do the same also. I switched back to Ubuntu to see if it was different on there, but Ubuntu is running fine.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Running Slow / Freezes And Icons Disappears

Jul 8, 2010

I'm really new to opensuse, and linux in general. I started using 11.2 in may and I'm still having trouble. I started it on a newly refurbished HP Pavillion. It's always seemed to run slow, freezes up when I plug in my external hard drive, won't play music on amarok or it will lag, things like that. When I run it in windows everything works fine. and it has always ran really hot and loud when in opensuse.

To make things worse, lately if I open mozilla, all the programs/windows I have open will disappear, all my tabs will disappear, all the icons on my desktop disappear and my application launcher, clock, etc, all disappear. when i manually shut it down and restart it works fine for a while. I keep trying to find things online but I've got to the point where I'm afraid to mess it up more.

Fedora :: System Freezes Temporarily For 5 - 15 Seconds

Jul 11, 2009

The system runs just fine then all of a sudden it "freezes". For example an input box doesn't respond nor can I scroll down the page. But when the system comes out of the freeze 5-15 seconds later, it suddenly does all the input that was used during the freeze. The scroll and letters suddenly show up. I don't loose mouse control and I can do some other system functions but not all of them.

Here are some various system info's
[osprey@host ~]$ uname -a
Linux #1 SMP Sun Jun 21 19:03:24 EDT 2009 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Fedora Servers :: System Clock Is Slow - Loses About 10 Seconds Every Minute

Mar 27, 2010

My system clock loses about 10 seconds every minute. The hwclock is fine. I've tried different kernel args (clocksource=acpi_pm, nohz=off, highres=off). None of these have any effect. I am running Fedora 11 with kernel 2.6.30-105.2.23.fc11.x86_64 on an AMD Istanbul node (Processor 2439 SE).

Debian Multimedia :: Audacious / Audio Freezes For A Few Seconds

Mar 28, 2015

I have a very fresh and basic install of the weekly jessie build (this week). I've installed nvidia drivers, some non-free plugins, virtualbox, basic system tools, etc. The issue is while playing in audacious, the song will freeze for about 5 seconds. It's always around 5 seconds. Sometimes it's once or twice per song, sometimes I'll play 10 songs without it happening. BTW, all music is on a separate hard drive on an NTFS partition.

In audacious, I'm using the Winamp skin. I noticed when trying to play for the first time, it wouldn't play unless I changed the setting in audacious to use ALSA. That was the only way I could go to Settings and select my SPDIF digital output. But then doing that, other sounds no longer worked (in iceweasel). So I downloaded pavu, was able to select my onboard digital stereo output, set audacious back to pulse audio, and everything now works. Only issue is audacious is freezing every now and then... Is there a driver or module that I need to check for? Is there a way to get everything to use ALSA?

I once tried AV Linux for the low latency kernel but since it was based on Wheezy and I wasn't familiar with repos, everything was extremely outdated, so I migrated away. Should I need an LL kernel for 320kbps audio playback? I haven't sat and watched a full mkv yet, some of those have 1.5mpbs audio.

Debian Configuration :: When Install NIS / System Becomes Very Slow

Apr 12, 2016

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.

Debian :: System Will Freeze For Some Seconds

Jun 20, 2011

I'm experiencing some weird short freezing issues in Squeeze and / or unstable. Everything works as usual, then the system will freeze for some seconds if I don't do anything, or resume faster if I move the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard. I thought it was a wifi related problem, as I have an intel iwl4965 , here is what I often see in dmesg:
[ 2608.910307] iwl4965 0000:06:00.0: Queue 4 stuck for 2000 ms.
[ 2608.910317] iwl4965 0000:06:00.0: On demand firmware reload
[ 2608.912832] ieee80211 phy0: Hardware restart was requested

Ubuntu :: System Freezes On Running Pearl Program - Out Of Memory

Sep 1, 2011

I am trying to run a simple perl program that requires getting stock price data from yahoo for just 1 ticker symbol, and it was running fine till this morning, wherein it froze and displayed the message: Out of memory!

I cleared my cache by running the following:

$sudo echo 1 |sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
$sudo echo 2 |sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
$sudo echo 3 |sudo tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
but it hasn't helped.

Even Firefox has been freezing, so I basically cannot do anything on my computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Keeps Freezing - Getting Black Screen And After 30 Seconds The DVD Player Stops Running

Jan 17, 2010

I am trying to install 11.2 but it keeps freezing. I press install and the Linux kernal loads and afterwards I get a black screen and after 30 seconds the DVD player stops running. I have also tried to the online network install and the exact same thing happens. I also tried a DVD I have of 11.1 which I know is good since I have successfully installed it on other machines and the result is also the same. My computer currently has a dual boot of XP and Kubuntu 9.10.

I am returning to Suse after experimenting with Kubuntu but thought I would leave the Kubuntu on the machine (prefer Suse but Kubuntu installed very easily on my computer). Could the Kubuntu be causing this problem or is the difficulty something else? I have also tried the safe install and the other options to no success.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Desktop Edition - System Running Incredibly Slow

Jun 18, 2011

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?

OpenSUSE Install :: System Will Automatically Shut Down In 60 Seconds

Mar 31, 2010

If I click on the shutdown bottom (in my lower panel) I get an new window to choose if I really want to shut down or restart or suspend or hibernate. Under that alternatives there is an text that says: "[...] The system will automatically shut down in 60 seconds." Why is the text "60" not running down like a countdown? Can I set another (shorter) time for the automatic shutdown (10 seconds)? If so, where? Or shut I just make another bottom to shut down immediately?

I use (normally) OpenSuse/SUSE Linux
Release 11.1
Kernel Linux
Gnome 2.24.1

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgraded To 11.3, System Hangs Every 10 Seconds For Half A Second?

Jul 20, 2010

I upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3 and found that there was no 3d support with the "nouveau" driver for the nvidia card. Then I linked in the nvidia repo and installed the nvidia driver. After that I noticed I had 3d support but things were a bit choppy, regardless of compositing or other tasks running. It appears that every 10 seconds the CPU load shoots up (on all 4 cores) and during about half a second all other activity is postponed, including mouse clicks, window moves, animations etc. Using the system monitor watching the CPU load, I see a train of load peaks traveling from right to left, 10 second intervals. Also done a graph on "paged in pages", same pattern, peaks on 6500/s. 11.2 Never exhibited this kind of behavior. Since I haven't found any similar postings I thought that some leftover of 11.2 may be the cause of this and since I am not an expert I would welcome any suggestions on how to tackle this.ystem: quad core Q6600, 3Gb mem, GEforce 8600GT, etcFwiw the load peaks are doubled, meaning peaks at 0, 3, 10, 13, 20, 23 etc seconds

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 'freezes' Every 10 Seconds Or So

Mar 15, 2011

I just installed OpenSUSE 11.4 - fresh install (no upgrade). However with 11.4 there is a very annoying bug (actually, two of them, but I'll post the other one to a different thread): every few seconds (10 or 15) the system 'freezes' for a split second. anything that is going on (visible) freezes for half a second or so. If you're in the process of moving the mouse, the pointer will stop dead in its tracks for that half second, and then when it resumes (a half-second later) it picks up from where "it would have been" had there not been a freeze (it will jump from one position on the screen to the next, as per the actual movement of the mouse. If I have a window (a terminal window for example) that is scrolling output, the scrolling will stop for the same half-second. I did a quick monitor with 'top' refreshing every tenth of a second, and when this freezing occurs is *seems* to coincide with spikes in the kernel thread 'kworker'. I have a hunch that this *may* be due to new built-in NVIDIA drivers that are in 11.4 that I wasn't using in 11.2 (where I compiled the driver from scratch) as I have seen a few posts about issues with this and the 'nouveau' driver - this is just a hunch. Not that dmesg also reports this log quite frequently:


This is a FAST system (3 GHz and four cores) that is otherwise running IDLE, other than logging into KDE. So it's not a case of high CPU usage or I/O usage. The video card is: VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 220] (rev a2). I have installed a basic KDE 64-bit distribution, using NO proprietary repositories - it's essentially and "out-of-the-box" install.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Freezes 10 Seconds After Login In Kde

Jun 27, 2010

I decided to install ubuntu again and downloaded 10.04. I had some issues installing with the desktop version, but everything installed fine with the alternate version.Now if I want to log in (on the KDE login-screen) the KDE-loading-symbols show up just as they are supposed to do, the desktop shows up (I can see "Desktop Folder and uBlog) and suddenly the mouse/system freezes. Neither Ctrl-Alt-Del isn't working nor Ctrl-Alt-F2 gives any response, all I can do is to reset my computer.

When I use Gnome as a desktop enviroment the computer totally freezes at the login-screen, without giving me any chance of logging in. Things I already tried: noapic, nomodeset, noacpi settings when booting, I successfully installed the latest ATI-Driver for my 3870, I disabled compiz.The kdm log says that there's some problem with an i-bus-daemon. Disabling/restarting the daemon has no effect on the behavior of my installation.

And now my hopes of another working computer have gone down the drains.

General :: Firefox Freezes For About 10 Seconds At Startup?

Sep 7, 2011

Every time I launch Firefox and go visiting some websites, I notice it freezes for about 10 seconds. Not always in the same websites, but it always happens sometime in the first 2 or 3 minutes of running. I can see the hard disk led is ON all the time the browser is hung.

My operating system is Linux and I don't currently have any extension/plugin installed here.

I have no form completion, no history and have no more than 20-30 bookmarks.

Has somebody noticed something similar, or know how can I debug this to find out what Firefox is doing or trying to do?

General :: Computer Freezes For 2+ Seconds But Mouse Still Moves / What To Do?

Dec 10, 2010

I have this problem on my workstation. The computer would effectively freeze for 2-5 seconds for no apparent reason, then continue as normal. While frozen the mouse would still be movable, but only on one of screens in my multi-screen setup. What can be the likely cause.


CPU: i7-920
Memory: 12G of Patriot DDR3, 6 modules
OS: SLED 11, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop, using Gnome
Main board: Asus P6T
Video: two Nvidia 9500GT connected to three displays

I am using memory at recommended settings of 8-8-8-1333. It has an XMP profile. Th CPU is a bit overclocked to 3.3 GHz, but my cooling more than allows for it. I ran the computer with all overclocks off and lower memory speed but the issue was still there.

Ubuntu :: Skype Incoming Video Freezes After 30-60 Seconds?

Jan 6, 2010

My problem is this: the video that I receive during a video call will freeze after about 30 to 60 seconds. Before that, it works fine. And the outgoing video (that which I send to the contact on the other end of the call) is fine throughout.

If my contact resets their video by turning it off and then on again during the call, it will usually work again for a few seconds. Then, as always, it freezes.

So, I am clearly receiving the signal. But maybe I am overloading something? Is this a graphics card problem?

* Mobile Intel 915GM Express card
* IBM Lenovo X41 laptop
* Intel Centrino processor
* Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)

Ubuntu Installation :: Freezes Up 30 Seconds Or So After A Successful Login?

Feb 17, 2010

Problem: Ubuntu freezes up 30 seconds or so after a successful login.

Background:I am running a Compaq Presario SR5030NX. It has had issues for a while with running Ubuntu properly. My computer suffers from this bug. I have managed to get the LiveCD running by adding the following to my boot parameters:

vga=792 i915.modeset=0
When I was running the LiveCD I found that it would freeze after about 30 seconds. I solved this problem by again changing the boot options. This time I:Press F6
Check noapic, nolapic, and pci=noacpi

I then proceeded to install Ubuntu.

My problem arose when Ubuntu did not modify grub.cfg to match the setting I needed in order to boot. I managed to modify in some of the settings correctly, I believe at least, but not all of them.

In its current state Ubuntu is able to boot, but freezes 30 seconds or so after a successful login. If I do not graphically login, I do still have access to VTY1-6. The machine does not freeze until a successful graphical login has been made.

Below is the relevant section of my grub.cfg:

menuentry "Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic" {
if [ -n ${have_grubenv} ]; then save_env recordfail; fi
set quiet=1
insmod ext2
set root=(hd0,2)

On another note:
The liveCD I have been running for 6 months is BackTrack 3 Final. Which does not have this issue at all. I would wager a guess that BackTrack 4 does though as it is based off Ubuntu instead of Slax.

OpenSUSE Install :: Ubuntu Installer Running Slow?

Mar 14, 2010

I was messing around couple linux distros and a desktop earlier today. When I booted from the Ubuntu disk, it seemed to take like 2-5 minutes on each screen. So was basically taking like 10 minutes before I even got to the disk's menu. When i booted the machine off of openSUSE 11.2 disk it booted nice and fast, then installed without a hitch.When i put the Ubuntu disk into my laptop it booted fast and fine there.I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas why that desktop would seem to disagree with a bootable Ubuntu disk like that. Those things are obviously designed to work with near anything. It's a standard IDE CD-ROM, 7600GT, IDE hard drive, all pretty standard stuff.
