Debian :: Screeches To A Halt When Xfering Files?

Jul 2, 2010

When i tranfer my files from my hdd to my external hdd debian seems to like to just completely freeze up and just sit there completely unresponsive. My hdd is a 7200rpm st320gb and the external is a 320(probably 5400rpm) toshiba usb 2.0 portable hdd. The system's Lenny with backports on iceweasel. Also this hasn't happened in Fedora, Ubuntu, or Windows. Thus far it seems to be a debian only related issue. Also i have no "safely remove/eject" option on my external so it's a bit like i'm just unplugging it as i hear it physically just stop spinning all at once instead of theother os' wherein i can slowly kill it off.

Debian :: Dist-Upgrades Halt With Comment Can't Respond To?

Jan 28, 2010

This n00b is having a weird situation during dist-upgrades that I've never seen before. It's puzzling my more-experienced pals in an irc channel, too.

Sometimes--not every time--while running a dist-upgrade outside of X on my Debian Testing machines, I get an informational text display (a comment box?) that always ends with the text "(END)". The display freezes there, and I am given no opportunity to respond and let the upgrade procedure continue.[URL]..

I've tried pressing escape, the space bar, enter, arrow-keys... nothing changes (I get system beeps with each keystroke). If I Cmd+C, I get a root prompt back, but any characters I type are not displayed as I type them. For example, I can type # "shutdown -r now", and the machine will shutdown --but the characters are not displayed as I type them.

If I immediately restart, go into a regular X session, and run synaptic, I get the same comment--but in a window with a "Close" button that I can click. The upgrade will then continue [URL].. This has happened on at least 3 different boxes, all running debian testing. Under gnome and xfce... Probably with 4 different packages in the last 3 weeks?

This morning it happened on a new debian testing install, and just now it happened -- with the identical package -- on an older debian testing install on a different box.[URl]..

Debian :: Cannot Set Halt And Reboot Options To Openbox Menu

Jun 10, 2010

I can't seem to get the options halt and reboot working in my openbox right-click menu. I've tried following the guide here from post #11, where the code he says to use in the /etc/sudoers file is:

%users  john=NOPASSWD: /sbin/shutdown -h now, /sbin/shutdown -r now

...but I can't seem to get it to work on my end. In obmenu, I have for halt, to run "sudo halt" and for reboot, "sudo reboot" but they only work after I've already entered my sudo password, such as when I work with terminal to edit a config file.

Ubuntu :: Grub4dos Halt Doesn't Work?

May 29, 2010

Anybody here know anything about grub4dos? I'm building myself a multiboot flash drive using grub4dos and one of my commands on the menu, obviously, is shutdown. This should be simply "halt" but every time I launch that command, or if I type it into the grub4dos command line, the computer locks up and I have to do a hard reboot.

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Unable To Halt (shut Down)?

May 31, 2010

I am trying to add an entry to grub2 to turn the computer off using the 'halt' command, but grub2 freezes and I have to manually reboot. I have tried both 'halt' and 'halt --no-apm', both with and without 'insmod halt' first. The 'reboot' command however works fine (even without 'insmod reboot') so it doesnt seem to be an acpi/apm issue. This was all tested at grub2's command line, so there isnt any problems with syntax in the config file. The laptop I am trying this on is an Acer Aspire One, I am using Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid), and a more or less default config for grub2 (GNU GRUB 1.98-1ubuntu6) as far as modules are concerned.

Ubuntu :: Halt Followed By Filesystem Error, Recurrent?

Aug 30, 2010

The other they my laptop totally halted in the middle of a luks-encrypted external-hd copy operation or such.After a hard poweroff and reboot, the linux procedure would halt at the

Code:(initramfs) line and couldn't be pushed further. I booted with a LiveCD, ran sudo fsck /dev/sda1 and answered yes to a bundh of filesystem-fixing prompts. Yesterday the it happened again: freeze then incomplete boot with same error message. Do you have an idea of what can be causing it? How can I diagnose this problem?

Ubuntu :: StartUp Halt Error - Filesystem?

I just accidentally clicked on my ubuntu drive when I was in PCBSD Unix and I had somehow glanced at a few things. When I tried, it didn't really let me in as much, but it said something about an access error and denial when I looked with the KDE Dolphin file browser.All I did was leave the rest alone and reboot but then got this when attempting to access Ubuntu:----------init: hwclock main process (366) terminated with status 29564.General error mounting file systems.---------- also got back into BSD and formally unmounted and rebooted again, but to no avail.

Fedora :: Computer Slows To A Halt - Seems Like 1 Frame Per 20sec

Apr 2, 2010

I didn't notice it before i installed compiz fusion, but perhaps it was happening then as well because i didn't play with fedora too much, but -- my problem is that after i open a few windows and a few minutes pass the entire system bogs down to what seems like 1 frame per 20sec. i can't even forcequit out of applications, and if i do it doesn't solve the problem. I read somewhere that GNOME might be trying to connect to the internet and hanging? ...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: White Screen And System Halt In 11.4

Jun 22, 2011

Just installed OpenSuse 11.4 successfully on my machine (E-machines T6212). Previously attempted to install Ubuntu 11.4 on it as well. Both OS have resulted in my computer screen turning white with blue lines and the entire system freezing; unresponsive to keystrokes and even keyboard CAPS/NUM lights don't respond. Only way I can get system to come back is to physcially unplug it, not even power it off with Power button.

I believe there is something with my graphics card that may be the culprit; ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M - ATI Radeon™ Xpress 200M Specifications

Because for both OpenSuse and Ubuntu this problem came up.

However with OpenSuse I am able to get to the Terminal Screen via : 1- On startup typing '3' into the screen and getting into 'grub' I think it is called.

I am not able to GUI.

I have read: Configuring Graphics Forum Page l in the forums here as well as looked into the Radeon page for the drivers.

I have also found the following thread here dealing with my particular graphics card but :

1-In my 'xorg.conf.new' file in my /root the correct driver "radeon" seems to be listed.

2-I added "radeon" to my 50-device.conf file in /etc/X11/xorg-conf.d/.. directory

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Comes To Halt In 30 To 45 Minute Video

Oct 13, 2010

On 10.04 64-bit, I've been noticing this weird error where totem comes to a halt after ~3/4 of playback in a 30-45 minute video, then it starts to play back again after about 10 seconds but it's a bit choppier. What could be causing this or how I can track down the issue? I'm running a nVidia GTX 275 with nividia-current drivers (195.36.24) if that helps diagnose anything.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Server Rebooting No Kernel Panic Halt?

May 14, 2010

We have a server running CentOS 5 Linux 2.6.18-128.1.16.el5xen #1 SMP Tue Jun 30 06:39:23 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU Linux. We've seen at random times that the server will just reboot and nothing is logged in messages. I tried to enable kdump but was only able to get a 5.4 gig dump since our /var directory is set to 10GB. Here is the messages I see before and after the server restart. I had thought that when a kernel panics, it is supposed to halt the system and not reboot it. My /proc/sys/kernel/panic is set to 0. I can run an update but want to have some sort of idea what is causing the issue and if the update will fix anything.

Ubuntu Security :: Something Is Trnsmitting Packets And Grinding Network To A Halt?

Feb 10, 2010

I have a small network with 4 users, a Win2003 server for LAN/security functions, and a Dell Blade server running Ubuntu 8.04.1 which runs as our web server on port 80. I manage the Ubuntu server with Webmin v1.42Yesterday, my users weren't able to access the internet nor were they able to receive mail, etc. and no one could access any of the website hosted on the webserver. However, the internal users could access each other's PCs and internal printers and devices - just nothing outside.

I began to troubleshoot: I could see a lot of activity on the Router/Firewall on the port connected to the Ubuntu server. When I unplugged the server, everyone could immedately connect to the internet. So, the problem was originating with that server.When I logged in to the Ubuntu server using Webmin, I checked System>Running Processes and right at the top of the list was the process:ID Owner CPU Command23184 www-data 98.1% ./s 174.120.164.186 7777When I drilled down on this process it said that the parent process was:/bin/sh -c ./s 174.120.164.186 7777I pressed the Trace Process button and it appears to be sending the following repeatedly:Time System Call Parameters Returnxxxx send 125,0123456789ABCDE,15,0 15So, I manually Killed the process and added a rule to my firewall/router to block an IP range that includes 174:120:164:186

A few hours later the same process stars again in Ubuntu,, effectively plugging up my pipeline to the internet and preventing access to the websites being hosted.It suspect that there is some kind of virus on my Ubuntu machine but have no idea how to locate and destroy it. I am relatively new to the Ubuntu world and would appreciate anyone's help immensely! I just don't know what to do!

Hardware :: Boot Halt After Initrd With Large Hard Disks?

Feb 5, 2011

upon installing 4 2TB drives, my server will not boot. I have tried booting from a slackware 11 dvd and passing these boot paramaters:

huge26.s root=/dev/sda1 noinitrd ro in addition to just trying to boot from the DVD using the huge26.s kernel. the kernel starts to load and says "Ready." Then sits there with a flashing cursor... The problem only exists with the new 2TB drives installed. I never had any problems when I had 750GB drives installed. Also, everything works fine if I boot from the DVD using "huge26.s root=/dev/sda1 noinitrd ro" as boot paramaters, and insert the 4 2TB drives (hot add) after the system starts booting.

I have also tried booting from a backtrack 3 cd but experience the same problem (boot halt after loading initrd)

SUSE / Novell :: OpenSUSE 11.2 And 11.3 Resume Session After Halt/reboot?

Once I halt my desktop machine and then boot it back up, applications previously open will open automatically. Is this some sort of KDE4 feature? Or what process is responsible for this? And is there some sort of file constantly updated about open programs and once I reboot, this file is read by KDE during the boot-up and those previously open programs will be started automatically?

Fedora :: System Grinds To Halt - Takes Several Seconds Just To Move Cursor

Aug 21, 2011

I'm running Fedora 14. I'm running a Athlon X2 with 4gb memory and nVidia 8400. I'm using the nvidia drivers ver 260. I'm running KDE 4.6. I've disabled desktop effects (when turnt on they work a charm, performance issues are the same either way). If I open any more than a few applications at once, the system grinds to a halt. even working with Kwrite is painful and it can take several seconds just to move the cursor, browsing the file is almost impossible.

When I have even 7 windows open X goes into a frenzy and sticks around 90% cpu usage. Even with no windows open if I move my mouse between screens X cpu usage stays between 50% and 90%. The system is unbearably slow. i have a XP Pro system with the same spec, lower GPU and I have no problems having 2/3 Visual Studios open, Photoshop, a few skype windows, Eclipse and the android emulator the system remains responsive but with this Linux box I can't even do basic stuff in Kwrite without it grinding to a haltJust.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: After Upgrade To 11.4 Hard Drives Not Properly Unmounted During Halt?

Mar 27, 2011

I did a zypper dup upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 with no errors. My shutdown command has always been halt -h and during shutdown, I would always see verbose info about the drives being umounted, the "term" signal being sent, and the "kill" signal being sent. Since the upgrade, I only see the "term" signal being sent, followed by shutdown. On every boot since the upgrade, the system goes through several hundred lines of file repairing as the file system is not clean after shutdown. For whatever reason, the hard drives are apparently being killed before the umount is complete. I have changed no settings. The problem exists whether I do a shutdown from the KDE menu, or run halt -h as su from a terminal.

Ubuntu :: Killing All The Process On Restart/halt/shutdown Instead Waiting For Scripts?

May 9, 2010

I haveing a big problem atm (just after to upgrade to 10.04). I have a simply and easy script that sent a halt command to every KVM virtual machine actually running into the server. this script is/and was) palced as a init-rc script in rc0/rc1 and rc6 lvls. Just after to upgrade, I have noticed that this script is executed but the system ignore the time that it require to finish (giving time to correctly stop a single virtual machine). Aftert 5 second it start sending SIG-TERM and SIGN-KILL to any currect process and then reboot/halt.

I have just done a new script using upstart and I got just the same result. What is happending? why is the waiting the init secuence for a valid/or_not termination of any init script. I am so sorry for this crap english I have never study this language so I try to do my best anytime I speak it (or try ti..).
