Fedora :: How To Prevent GDM To Start X Server On Console

Feb 15, 2011

I have a headless server, and I want to prevent GDM 2.30 from starting the graphical login on the console screen. As I use XDMCP, I still need GDM running on the server... With previous versions of GDM, I was doing that through gdmsetup, which ended with these lines in /etc/custom.conf :



but it seems that it's not working anymore with 2.30...

CentOS 5 :: Prevent Certain Errors From Displaying On Console / Set That Up?

Jan 26, 2011

We are currently troubleshooting the following error, which was repeatedly being displayed on the console:

kernel: Northbridge Error, node 2<0>K8 ECC error."

After replacing all of the memory, the error remained, so we tried updating to the latest kernel. (Currently having to use centos-plus because we are using XFS)

After the kernel update the error disappeared fro 5 days (previously UNHEARD of - would often repeat several times a day), it appeared again and hasn't appeared since.

It does not seem like any real damage is done here - and I would like to suppress this error somehow. Optimally I would like it to only be forwarded to the log files - and NOT be displayed on the console.

Could someone point me to an easy way to set that up?

Fedora Installation :: Booted To Console Prompt - How To Start Gnome

Mar 20, 2009

I finally got my system to boot to a console prompt. This is a fresh installation of fc10 that I have struggled to get working with my old Adaptec 2940 scsi hardware. I am a little fuzzy on the whole gtk, gdm, gnome thing. So how do I go from this console prompt to configuring the new installation with desktop?So let's say I am logged on as root on the console.

Ubuntu :: Can't Start Kde Or Get A Console

Feb 22, 2011

Yesterday i fell asleep while my laptop was still on. when i woke up this morning i stared at a black screen. I tried to wake it up but nothing happened so i just turned it off.

But when i turn it on again i get this after the login screen: Xsession: Warning" Unable to write to /tmp; X session may exist with an error

After a few minutes i get the message, that my temp directory id full.

Now the problem is, that i cannot even login in console mode! i tried the "console login" mode from the login window, i tried switching the console with ctrl+Alt+F1, i even tried to start in recovery mode. But all i get is a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the middle, but i can't write anything!

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - Dev - Console Linked To Tty7 After Kdm Start

Sep 17, 2010

I could not solve examining the start and stop scripts. When I boot (default runlevel 5) my system all log messages are displayed on /dev/tty1. After the boot process has finished and kdm is started no more console messages are displayed on /dev/tty1. Instead all console output is redirected to /dev/tty7. When I change the runlevel from 5 to 3 boot.msg shows


Changing back to runlevel 5 gives


Why kdm redirects console output to /dev/tty7 instead of /dev/tty1?

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia 8600GT - Start In (Tty1) Login Console Mode

Dec 17, 2010

I tried most methods suggested on many sites to install drivers
## through the additional driver panel only
## through the Nvidia.run file I downloaded
## through the terminal using apt-get

All failed to start ubuntu gui it takes me to the console login and I noticed it says "saned disabled" edit /etc/..something. This problem made me install ubuntu again three times and every time I activate the driver then install the driver Nvidia.run or through apt-get and both leads to a black screen tty1 login. So what to do now I installed and removed many things and I won't reinstall ubuntu again. Also I typed compiz and this came on:

root@ubuntu:/home/sherbieny# compiz
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
compiz (core) - Fatal: Root visual is not a GL visual
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :1.0
Launching fallback window manager. I want to install properly so that I can start normally and enable the extra visual effects and the custom effects. Please elaborate the steps clearly

New Info:
When I enter nvidia-settings : server X opens and says
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root), and restart the X server. When I enter nvidia-xconfig as root and restart nothing happens and when I enter:
nvidia-detector it says none
and when I enter: nvidia-smi

Error: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 260.19.21, but this NVIDIA driver component has version 260.19.29. Please make sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components have the same version.
Failed to allocate an RM client
Could not allocate resources!
root@ubuntu:/home/sherbieny# apt-get update kernel
E: The update command takes no arguments

A new and very exciting error everyone now also the windows 7 that I have besides linux has also crashed and cannot open the login window. I don't know whats happening all I know is that few hours ago I logged in to windows normally now I cannot login to either one of them and the funny part is: I'm working on my thesis on this computer and I cannot work anymore and I'm supposed to meet with the professor on monday.

Server :: NTP Config - Prevent Clients Using Server?

May 24, 2010

I'm presently writing software to keep my system time from drifting, it uses an external clock device.To verify it's accuracy I'm running ntpd as a server, and have another server monior the first as a client. This allows me to compare the offset with other 'valid' time servers.The problem is that the monitoring client keeps synchronising with my development server. How can I configure either the dev. server or the client so that it's time won't be selected as a good time source?The ntp.conf on the dev. server looks like:

server # local clock

Server :: Ssh: Prevent Disconnection After A Command?

Aug 19, 2010

I wish to create aliases to log into a server and go to a specific folder. For example, I have two aliases:


alias REP1='ssh me@server cd /REP1'
alias REP2='ssh me@server cd /REP2'

and of course, I'm disconnected after cd commands. I found no ssh option which prevents this disconnection to occur. I also tried the following trick:


ssh me@server "cd /REP; bash -i"

but it left me with a crappy shell (no color, directions keys printing ^]]A, ...)

Server :: Ubuntu 9.04 Server - Console Font Too Big And Starts Off Screen

Jan 4, 2010

The title pretty much says it all. Once I get past GRUB, the font becomes HUGE and starts off screen. It appears to be center zoomed because I cannot see the login prompt nor anything I type. It's not really an emergency, I installed OpenSSH during the OS installation and can just turn it on and log in over SSH or start up Webmin. It just bugs me that I cannot figure this out.

There is no graphical environment installed, so it's not a video card issue. I tried adding vga=ask as a kernel flag and then tried several options, but to no avail.

Hardware :: Recommended Ups To Prevent Server From Burning Up

Jun 2, 2011

I think this is the right place to ask my question so I'll just go ahead. Where I live we have frequent power anomalies such as outage and why I would describe as power resets resulting in power being cut and restored in a very fast delay, resulting in all electrical equipment in my house to reset and all computers to improperly shutdown and reboot. I don't know how many times my beloved Linux server was reset like this and every time reiser fs has to replay transactions and so far I've been lucky I did not lose any hdd or other components but I think this will happen sooner than later.

What I am searching for is a device that would protect my server, scanner, router and a few other small devices from power surges and anomalies that would result in hardware and equipment damage. What I also want from that device is the capability to continue powering the devices until they properly shutdown. I think a ups is what I am looking for but all models that I've seen are priced $400 up and that's over my budget.

What I also want is the capability to announce to the server that the device is running on batteries and that the server can initiate it's normal shutdown procedure.

Server :: OpenVPN Prevent Sites From Being Accessed?

Apr 18, 2011

Is there a way to prevent users of an OpenVPN service from accessing restricted sites? I know this can be done through a proxy server but through a VPN there seems to be no way of preventing traffic from accessing porn sites or other as the traffic is encrypted. I am using a VPN in the same fashion as a proxy server except that the VPN is necessary because some video sites use rtmp on port 1935, which a proxy server cannot route.
