CentOS 5 Server :: 5.3 I386 Stuck On Splash Screen - Waiting For A Click To Boot Normally

Jul 12, 2009

This is a standard install, just like I've done dozens of times before.

Plain vanilla, just installed.

When I boot, I get to the splash screen and it doesn't go into the default selection.

Could this be a Hardware thingy? The reason I ask is because I've had this issue happening with 5.2 on the same machine. I just formatted it completely and installed a fresh 5.3 i386 on it and I get the same behavior.

[root@server ~]# cat /boot/grub/grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that

Fedora :: Yum Update Install New Kernel - Boot Process Stuck

Mar 24, 2010

I'm not sure what caused it, but it happened right after running 'yum update'. It may be because it installed a new kernel, and there are now two kernels listed in my grub.conf and at boot; 2.6.31 and 2.6.32. System boots through a list of things it's starting up and stalls out at ATL or ADL or ADM maybe. It hangs there for a minute or so then flickers. This happens every time at boot. It's a bit difficult to post more information since I can't get past that part of the boot process, and I can't seem to be able to skip it either. It may be worth mentioning that this is a mini-itx motherboard. Intel Atom 330 1.6, 2GB DDR2, onboard GeForce 9400m. It's a zotac ionitx-a-u. I've installed a fresh copy of Fedora 12 lxde.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Will Not Boot After Video Driver Update

Mar 28, 2011

However, I have had this issue with Windows computers as well, I just don't know how to beat around this problem and fix it with the new OS.

For starters, I have a Sony Vaio laptop (VGN-NS295J) that's running a ATI Mobility 3430 Video card on F14 64bit.

From the beginning, my device was not recognized with a good driver, so I started jumping through hoops reading forums of how to properly install this driver and get rid of the on board video. After I was successful (so I thought) I rebooted my system, and now after Fedora finishes loading the operating system, the screen goes gray and I can start typing in whatever I want.

I can still log in by Ctrl+Alt+F2 or whatever it is, but I'm stuck to text, and don't know my way around well enough yet.

I believe the issue is that it's trying to treat my laptop as two moniters, or defaulted my monitor incorrectly perhaps? At least this is what always happened to me in the past with Windows.

I just fresh installed F14 today, so I don't have anything of importance on the HD.

*UPDATE* Okay, so i've figured out hitting escape lists two versions of Linux there off the boot. The top one repeats the message I've just given, and the second one will go to the Fedora screen right after the boot (where it fills the emblem diagonally), then the screen flashes like it's starting to run my video card, and the screen goes black.

Fedora :: FC 11 - Video Driver Update Causes Lockup On Boot

Oct 22, 2009

I have a new Fedora 11 install with all updates working on my: Dell XPS M1330 laptop with nVidia GeForce 8400M GS

I wanted to install compiz fusion on Gnome so I followed these step by step instructions from:

Fedora refused to boot, locking up during the process.

Here is what happens...

After updates I had 3 options at boot up:

A) If I choose the TOP one (newest) it will boot up to a black screen and nothing else, I get a white block which moves with mouse. I cant get a shell and any key I hit just echoes back...ctr-alt-del will result in normal shutdown process displaying.

If I watch the services start (F1) I see all -OK- except: nvidia.ko: Driver already enabled

The boot continues with all OK until it gets to:
at which time the screen flashes for about 7 seconds and locks up.

B) If I choose MIDDLE boot option and watch the boot process I see most services start OK except:


Checking for module nvidia.ko [FAILED]
nvidia.ko for kernel was not found [WARNING]
The nvidia driver will not be enabled until found [WARNING]
Driver already disabled


Then the services continue on with [OK] until a few seconds later the screen halts with a mess of colors and symbols on screen and system stops booting. Any key pressed simply echoes back with no other result. Again ctrl-alt-del refreshes screen and shutdown of services proceeds normally.

As I can remember there is a Radeon X1250 in the computer. How can I get the old version working again without reinstalling?

General :: Using Alternate Kernel Video Driver

May 2, 2011

For several months, I've had a couple problems with my X display. The first is an occasional seg fault that cascades thru all applications, leaving me with nothing, and requiring a reboot.The second is that all mozilla derived browsers -- firefox, epiphany, icecat -- crash very frequently. Sometimes this requires a reboot or restart of the display.Since I am not seeing complaints from other people about this for my distro (f14), but it did not happen on the same hardware with my previous install (f10), I'm putting it down to some combination of software.

My first suspect is the ati catalyst video driver. I don't use GL much, so I actually don't need the proprietary driver installed all the time. If it is the problem, I'd like to leave it installed for when I need it, but mostly use the kernel's native radeon driver.I had hoped this would be as simple as removing the fglrx driver and loading radeon, but that doesn't work -- when I start X again, the kernel loads fglrx. I changed the xorg conf to use the "ati" (xorg) driver; this leads to "no signal" to the monitor and I have to reboot.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Stuck On Splash Screen?

I removed Cairo from synaptic. Since then Ubuntu doesn't start - it gets stuck on the splash screen, which is Mac-like (since I had installed Macubuntu): I see the apple logo and the rotating wait prompt is running like hell. My pc has dual boot (Vista is my other OS) with grub2 loader.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Stuck At Login Splash / AMD 5870

Oct 5, 2010

I just installed 10.04, 64-bit on a work computer that has an AMD 5870 GPU with the latest drivers from AMD (possibly relevant). I keep getting stuck on login at the Ubuntu logo with the five red dots beneath it. I can SSH into the machine from another machine, and I can hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete, which reboots after flashing some text.

I can also log in by amending Grub to remove the "quiet splash" and by hitting ctrl-X, but I can't get the X server to start from a text prompt. It generally gives me a blank screen after I type "startx," and I have to force-reset the computer. (I've been reading the forum for all the hints about how to fix this issue).

Interestingly, sometimes when I reboot I get a "...disk drives are being checked for errors..." message under the Ubuntu splash logo, and if I let this go to completion, I can log into the GUI without any problem. If I hit ctrl-C during the check, it won't log in.

So, right now I'm logged in to the GUI, but I'm afraid to reboot for fear of the dreaded red dots and no login.

OpenSUSE Install :: Booting Stuck At Splash Screen?

Nov 5, 2010

New install on Compaq Presario F700 (F756NR)The install went fine. I was able to get the Nvidia drivers working too. The problem I have is when the system boots. I get the OpenSuse splash screen, and the system just hangs.I found that if I press <Esc> and hit <Enter> a few times, the system will eventually boot. I also found if I wiggle the mouse during the splash screen, the progress bar will begin to move, and the system will boot.Seems to be something about detecting hardware during the boot phase, and it seems to be input related.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Stuck At Purple Splash Screen After Installation

Dec 16, 2010

Yesterday I booted into the Ubuntu 10.10 CD, and hit the Try Ubuntu button. Ubuntu booted fine from the CD, and after trying it for a few minutes, I decided to install it.

I already had (and still have) Windows 7 installed, so, using the Ubuntu Installer, I shrinked the C (system) partition of Windows by roughly 14 GBs. 10 of which used for Ubuntu itself, and the other 4 as Swap Area.

Installation went fine, and I was asked to reboot - and so I did. However, upon restarting, I was 'welcomed' by a stuck, purple splash screen. So I used Recovery Mode, and updated my Ubuntu. That didn't change anything. I rebooted, started Ubuntu without the "splash quiet" commands, and instead used the "nomodeset" command. I logged in my Ubuntu user, and ran the StartX command. It didn't work, and I was given a few errors, including "no screen found", "Fatal server error", and something along the lines of "no NVIDIA module found (...,0)".

So what's wrong with the NVIDIA driver, really?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Will Not Boot After Changing Video Driver

Apr 28, 2010

I'm running Lucid (all updates) with an ATI Radeon 3100 video ini a Toshiba Laptop.

I was troubleshooting a problem with XBMC, and tried disableing the propriatary ATI driver. Now ubuntu will not boot. I've tried recovery mode, and it gets to:


And nothing else. I've tried CTRL-ALT-F1 and BACKSPACE, and nothing happens. I know that I just need to re-enable to ATI driver, or possible reconfigure X, but I can't figure out how at this point.

Ubuntu :: Get Xubuntu To Boot With Glint Video Driver Instead Of Vesa?

Jun 13, 2010

Does anyone know how I can get xubuntu to boot up using the glint video driver instead of vesa? I am trying to get it loaded on an older machine and a previous version of ubuntu worked using the glint driver but the latest version of xubuntu (10.04) is using the vesa driver. Which is not working for me. I have tried ubuntu, xubuntu and lubuntu all version 10.04 and neither of them has worked. They all boot up into a terminal window (no GUI).

I tried creating an xorg.conf file and added a line specifying the glint driver. After doing that and trying to startxfce4 I get an error saying that it cannot load the glint module. Unfortunately that machine has no internet connection either. I guess it hasn't recognized my wireless card either.

Ubuntu :: After Video Driver Update - Black Screen On Boot

Sep 2, 2010

My Machine: Lenovo T400 laptop, 9.04 ubuntu

My problem: while working on my laptop the system Offered an update to my ATI video card............so being the nube that I am I said go ahead and install it............yep that f'd it up. it ran for a while then froze up to the point I had to hard boot the machine. on restart the desktop splash/load screen displays but nothing else afterwards. I can get into restore mode and even terminal but can't seem to find anything........there is an autofix video option but that did not work either.

I spent a week loading and configuring this thing and do not want to start back from scratch...........I have too much stuff to lose on a new install. funny thing is that I just had set the system to do a complete backup of the ubuntu instance for tonight so I would have some way to restore this if something happened...........well it happend before the backup ran tonight........go figure.

Is there a way to reload the default system without loosing my files and such? I would just have to load vmware back on and some other programs but I a okay with that.

Ubuntu :: Video Card Driver Destroying Boot Progress Sequence?

Jul 27, 2010

I have a full install on a dedicated partition. And the problem persists. I have tacked it down to the driver for my video card [nVidia 9600m GS]. When I disable the driver, it somewhat returns to normal [it works fine on shut down, but boot up is still buggy]. However, this makes Docky complain about compositing [it will still work, but there's a black void around it] not being enabled. I also assume that lacking the driver will cause problems if I try to do anything 3D.

Fedora Installation :: First Boot Stuck

Sep 18, 2009

To give a bit of background, I started using Fedora at Fedora Core 2. I've installed and upgraded Fedora several times in the last few years.However, I'm not a Linux master, and there are many things I don't know how to do. When I need help, I can usually find an answer, but not this time.

I've just wiped clean my hard drive (after backing up to a separate drive), repartitioned it, and have installed F11. There were a few glitches along the way regarding the repartitioning, but they got worked out.Oh, before the install, I also added a new 1TB SATA hard drive to the system.Now that the initial install is done, I'm trying to boot up and complete the process, but the system hangs after checking filesystems. Yes, it already checked and passed the new 1TB drive.I've left the machine at this step for an hour and it has not yet loaded the firstboot screen to complete the install process.

fedora 13.I have ran fedora for a little while now and its quite good, a lot more stable than I was led to believe and add/remove tool has a great variety. So today I was booting up and decided to "type" as fedora was booting. The long and the short of this is that fedora stops at this well the bar fills just before nvidia screen/login dialog pops up and freezes there.
