Fedora :: F11 Hangs. Can't Properly Shut Down

Apr 12, 2010

I have no idea why I can not shut down my system properly. Every time I try to shut down, it just hangs and the only thing what I can see is my wallpaper. Then I am forced to do hard shut down, holding shut down button for a few seconds. Can someone help me with this? I have to mention that month ago everything was fine. No major system changes where done till that. My F11 is all up to date. Laptop: Acer Aspire One 751H.

Ubuntu :: Properly Close Transmission On Shut Down?

Feb 7, 2010

If I log out or shut down Ubuntu with Transmission still open, the next time I start Transmission it will verify the local data, which take a very long time because I have lots of torrents. Does anyone knows how I can prevent this without having to explicitly close Transmission every time?

If I explicitly close Transmission before shutting down Ubuntu, it works fine.

I'm using Ubuntu and 9.10 (Karmic Koala) and Transmission 1.75

Ubuntu :: How To Properly Shut Down System Remotely With SSH

Apr 21, 2010

So I've got a backup server that has a daily cronjob to back up all my systems. My desktop PC is usually in sleep mode to save power. So my backup server has to wake up the desktop via wake-on-LAN to start the backup job. When the backup script is done, my backup server sends a shutdown command to the desktop to put it back in sleep mode.

The trouble is that SSH is timing out during the shutdown process and waits a ridiculous amount of time before giving up and allowing my backup server to move on to the next backup script. Here's the portion of my backup script for the desktop that does the shutdown stuff:

ssh user@host.lan '/usr/bin/shutdown -p +1'

Here's what cron sends me via e-mail:

Read from remote host host.lan: Connection timed out
real 164m46.280s
user 5m16.160s
sys 1m39.760s

Normally the entire backup job will only take about 5 minutes. But because of SSH timing out, it takes 164 minutes!

As a matter of detail, my backup server is running Ubuntu 9.10, and the desktop is Windows 7 x64 with Cygwin. The -p option for the shutdown command in Cygwin is for sleep mode.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Won't Shut Down Properly

May 26, 2011

Whenever I close Banshee by clicking the 'x' in the upper left-hand corner; the player moves to the next track and keeps on playing, just without a GUI. I had this problem in Rhythmbox as well. I'm also having the same problem with Software Center.It certainly looks like the UI/Window Manager is not always sending the application 'kill' signal to the running process. I'm currently using Gnome 2.x / Ubuntu Classic. I haven't tried this in Unity yet; but I suspect I will have the same problems there as well.

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.

General :: Why Ntfs Partition Need That Window Xp Shut Down Properly

May 9, 2009

I just wounder why a ntfs partition need that my window xp shut down properly before i can mount it on my new Debian install.What happen it that when scanning window xp for virus i got a blue screen and window just crash repeatedly , so i tough i could just mount that partition with ntfs-3g, find the virus witch i identify to be in c:/window and delete it, but my ntfs partition would not mount and the boot message said something like (ntfs partition is still in use). Long story short, i finally managed to get a full window xp boot followed by a clean shut down, then my ntfs partition mounted and i was able to delete that virus.I could mount that partition with ntfs ro option in fstab, but not with ntfs-3g rw until i got a clean xp shutdown.

General :: Unable To Properly Shut Down After Bios Update

Sep 6, 2010

I have a bit of a weird problem, I have updated the BIOS for my motherboard (MSI K9A2 Platinum V2) to version 1.B which updates the CPU AGESA code. After the update I was unable to properly shut down linux (gentoo linux 64 bit, kernel 2.6.34, kde 4.4), when I try to do a shut down (tried it from kde and from the command line as well with the same result) the computer shuts down but then it starts up again, only this time the keyboard doesn't work. I think that somehow, the way the pc shuts down has changed (maybe linux is sending the wrong commands in order to shut down) because from windows 7 I can shut down the pc properly.
I have tried to recompile the kernel (I thought that maybe I forgot to add support for some ACPI, APM or CPU options that could affect the shut down procedure) but with no luck.

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

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:
