Fedora X86/64bit :: Running F11 I586 On Laptop / System Shut Off (not A Normal OS Shut Down, But A Sudden Power Off Without Warning)?

Oct 13, 2009

Offlate I installed F11 i586 on my laptop. F11 shares the hard disk with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The problem is that when running F11 (or even Ubuntu), my system shut off suddenly(not a normal OS shut down, but a sudden power off without any warning). This could have been a hardware trouble(heating) but it doesn't happen with Vista.
Machine specifications:
Maker: Toshiba
Model: Satellite L305D-S5881
AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor RM-70
3072 MB 800 MHz SDRAM
I don't want to open up my machine unnecessarily, if it isn't a hardware issue.
I am not sure how to verify the bit length of the machine and the OS and does it create a compatibility issue ?
Your advise would be highly appreciated.

Fedora :: Computer Won't Shut Off Unless - 'turn Black' And Become Unresponsive

Mar 3, 2011

My computer won't shut off unless I just hold down the power button. Everytime I try System > Shut Off it just turns off, then restarts. My computer screen will sometimes just 'turn black' and become unresponsive, and I have to shut it down and restart. (The longest I waited was a few minutes with no response. How do I get customized mouse pointers? When I download something and 'extract' it, how do I know which file I'm supposed to open after I click 'show the files'? I've downloaded a few things and extracted them but I'm assuming I must do more, since they are not on my applications. Which is the best browser to use on Fedora? I love Opera, but for some reason my internet is twice as slow on Opera as it is on Firefox or Chrome?

Fedora Networking :: Eth0 Intermittently Shut Down Couple Of Times Without Obvious Cause

Oct 12, 2009

Today my eth0 has intermittently shut down a couple of times without obvious cause from router or modem which appear normally lit. This happened a month or two ago soon after an update and them went away. I have unchecked ssh in the firewall settings as it is not needed but this has never been a problem. In the block of code there should be one attempt to graphically restart eth0.

Fedora :: Mount 15 Partition - Suddenly Shut Down During An Update - System Won't Boot Anymore

Aug 8, 2011

I recently switched from fedora 14 to 15. Today my computer suddenly shut down during an update, as I thought it overheated I decided to clean the cooling system and reapply thermal paste. However, now the system won't boot anymore ("kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root FS on unknown-block").

I would like to either solve this booting problem, or mount the fedora 15 filesystem and recover some files. Whichever is easier.

I have another drive with fedora 14 (antec below) which boots fine:

Ubuntu :: Can't Shut Down UU 9.10

Jan 31, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude D610, installed Ubuntu 9.10 with wubi and Win XP professional. I had only one problem booting which was fixed immediately by meierfra, but now the Ubuntu won't shut down. The final message is "ubuntu 9.10 login", then the screen freezes.Oddly when I restart from Ubuntu it shuts down enough to reboot into either Windows or back into Ubuntu. To shut down from Ubuntu I'm now holding down the start switch until the machine stops. effective but inelegant.

OpenSUSE :: Updated To Kde 4.6.2 With Shut Down?

Apr 8, 2011

I have a clean install of 11.4 64 bit updated with factory and tumbleweed. Updated to kde 4.6.2 (from 4.6.1) yesterday using factory. The update worked fine with the exception of shutting down. When I press the shut down button it closes kde and takes me to a terminal window logon. So I have been switching to root and init 0. The re-start option (from kde) works fine.

I rolled my system back to kde 4.6.1 and it shut down without any problems. I thought that it might be a problem with me using factory to upgrade to kde 4.6.2 - so I switched back to kde 4.6.2 using the kde repo at:- Index of /repositories/KDE:/Distro:/Factory/openSUSE_11.4

Same problem in shutting down. So I again rolled back to kde 4.6.1 (which again came from factory) and no problems. The only thing that I can see that is different is when I log out of kde and there is the (kdm) screen login, on the bottom left there are the different systems available. For kde this used to show:-

but now just shows the two plasma options. Is this were my problem lies or is this standard were someone has upgraded to kde 4.6.2.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Shut Down 11.2

Jan 23, 2010

Recently I installed openSUSE 11.2 (GNOME) on my HP DC7100 machine. I was very excited about it until shortly, when I started discovering the problems.

One of the more severe problems is that I can't shut down the system:
Pressing the "Shut Down" button brings me back to the login screen. From there I still can't shut down, but I also can't log-in any more. The only option left is the hard shut down.

"Restart" sometimes works, but often ends up in the login screen too.

As far as the "Suspend" and "Hibernate" is concerned, I did not experience any problems there.

By the way, after the installation, I consumed all available updates (including the kernel upgrade). I'm not aware it the problem existed before the updates.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 - Laptop Too Hot And Has To Shut Down

Jan 5, 2010

Recently I built a new computer, making my old laptop redundant, so I thought I'd turn it into a portable studio computer with linux. I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 with the low latency kernal and the ubuntustudio audio packages. And while the system still has many other kinks I need to work out, my main issue is heat. Even when I'm running the official Ubuntu kernal rather than real-time one, I'll use the laptop for basic browsing and messaging.

Suddenly Ubuntu crashes with a warning saying that my laptop is too hot and has to shut down. The only way I've found around this is to run the laptop from cold with an external fan blow right onto the computer. I can still hear the fan working and airflow is totally unrestricted. If it helps, the laptop is 4 years old and is a Acer Ferrari 4000. I never had these issues running XP on it for the past 3 1/2 years and I'm relatively new to running a Linux system.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Hangs On Shut Down

Jan 12, 2010

I was so pleased with Ubuntu (9.10) on my desktop that I installed it on my laptop, too. However, on the laptop (but not on the desktop) I cannot shut down properly. I get a black screen with the following text:

Ubuntu 9.10 (my computer name) ttyl (my computer name) login: (flashing cursor)

On one occasion I got:

Ubuntu 9.10 (my computer name) ttyl (my computer name) login: init: usplash main process (10187) killed by TERM signal

In either case it hangs there and does not completely shut down.

Ubuntu :: 'Shut Down' App On Panel Gone?

Mar 15, 2010

And I can't find it on the panel apps list:

It was there when I logged on this morning, it's not there now, instead replaced by '15, 16:54' (no that's not the time, it's to the left of my clock right where the session button normally is). There's a shut down button in the apps list but it's not the same as the original that was there...

EDIT: and now it's back. And in fact it WAS the time, it was the 15 (date) and time. Dunno what made it crash. A log out and it's back on.

Ubuntu :: Can't Shut Down Computer With GUI?

Mar 17, 2010

OK, so basically my problem is that I can't log out, shut down, or restart my computer through the GUI. The thing is, it used to work. Note: this started happening right after I put in the lock / logout widget, but it's really a pain to have to go through the Kickoff menu to lock the screen each time, and leaving my files, online accounts, and what's on my screen open to anyone who wants to snoop is not an option. I may have to just suck it up and lock the screen the old-fashioned way, but only as a last resort.

Configuration: An older Gateway (idk the exact specs) desktop machine with Windows XP and Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic (dual-boot)
