Fedora Installation :: Crashed For No Apparent Reason Several Times?

Jul 1, 2011

I have just installed (after a series of crashes during the install) Fedora 15. I also have Ubuntu Natty installed and use it primarily but I wanted to reach out and try new distros.I've wanted to try Fedora and finally got enough nerve to try. Installing it crashed for no apparent reason several times.ehow it installed and booted right to Fedora.However, when finally figuring out how to run the updates, I began to have the same problem.(Someone elsewhere suggested trying to update through command line--which I did finally though I had a few crashes doing this).

Now I am logging in and then it will just inadvertently crash. I could be in firefox, or using terminal, etc. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to why this is happening and I feel frustrated. I really want to test out Fedora (it looks so nice!) but can't manage to stay afloat more than a few minutes. I might also mention that this does not happen in Ubuntu at all so I can't account for the issues. I have much to learn but I feel a bit intimidated by Fedora because it's so new to me.

CentOS 5 Server :: Crashes For No Apparent Reason?

Jun 14, 2009

Ive been searching half the internet for a solution for a strange problem im having with a server (CentOS 5.2 Final). For no apparent reason, the server will just be powered off.I've looked in the dmesg log and /var/log/messages file, but that doesnt show anything, except the "syslogd 1.4.1: restart." message after booting it up again, and hours in advance of the crash a "suhosin" alert message.

Ubuntu Networking :: Eth0 Disappeared For No Apparent Reason?

May 4, 2010

I was struggling frantically this morning for about 5 minutes after I booted up my computer, and wondering why it couldn't connect to the internet. After I figured out that the automatic wired network "Auto eth0" was gone from the network manager, it was easy to manually add it back. But why did it disappear in the first place?

Ubuntu :: Disk Space Disappearing For No Apparent Reason?

May 20, 2011

I woke up this morning to a message saying I have low disk space in /home. My /home partition is 150 GB, but I had only 4 kB left. I promptly rebooted, which helped, but I still only have 40 GB available. Now, I use only 26 GB, so where the rest is, I don't know. In the disk usage analyzer, a lot of the space was not accounted for, as shown in the image.

Here is the output from df -h and du

simen@simen-laptop:~$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 55G 8.0G 45G 16% /
none 2.0G 368K 2.0G 1% /dev


I checked out .gvfs and it's just a CD I have playing. I really don't know what's going on.

Ubuntu :: Disk Checks During Boot Without Any Apparent Reason

May 21, 2011

I've been an Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit user for one year. My Ubuntu distro is installed on an ext2 file system. Occasionally, I experience disk checks during boot without any system freeze or power loss.Sometimes, once reboot, the system works fine but Evolution Mail requests a new account, as if it was used for the very first time.Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Networking :: Network Stopped Working For No Apparent Reason

Apr 8, 2011

Network stopped working about a month ago. I installed ubuntu again, and network worked fine, and I turned off updates to keep things stable. Now network stopped working again. No changes had been made to it.I put in the ubuntu install cd, and network works fine off of it. I did not reinstall again. ifconfig shows eth0 with correct ip address, but 0 RX/TX packets.

Cant ping anything from it, and cant ping to it from other computers.I'd really rather not reinstall yet again, any ideas on how I should go about diagnosing this problem?Ubuntu 2.6.35-28-generic-pae #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 14:58:06 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

Networking :: Sudden Network Troubles On Debian With No Apparent Reason?

Apr 7, 2011

I just want to see if anyone else is having problems connecting to networks, wifi or wired. For some reason, I can see both wired and wireless networks available but when I try to connect, it times out. I updated a couple of days ago and suddenly started having problems today. Anyone else having the same problem?I have only tried the router and repeater I have to connect to. My other computers are working just fine. One is actually running as a Debian server with no GUI (which I do not update as often). The other is a Mac.

Ubuntu :: Crashed 5 Times In The Last Hour And A Half - Constantly ?

Nov 29, 2010

I want to know what other people have done to stop their computers from crashing. My main computer has now crashed 5 times in the last hour and a half.

I am not using Compiz, and to the best of my knowledge it is uninstalled. I try not to use flash with the internet. I am using the 64 bit version of 10.04, because I want to make use of my 8GB of RAM.

The computer crashes constantly. Constantly. Usually when I am using it. I can leave it on for days without a problem; but as soon as I need to get work done, it starts crashing.

Some specs:
ASUS P7P55D Pro motherboard
Intel i5-750 processor.
evga GTS 250 video card with NVIDIA drivers (uptodate)
Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit

I need a gameplan to make this computer stop crashing. how to start diagnosing the causes of these crashes.

Ubuntu :: Odd Times, Desktop Crashed When Wake Up From Hibernation

Feb 6, 2011

I've a very annoying(and strange) problem with hibernation. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10.

It's been a month and the hibernation works exactly in the following pattern:


By success, I mean the machine hibernates OK and wake up exactly as before hibernation.

By fail, I mean the machine go to sleep and when wake up, all applications are gone and the login screen is displayed. I think gnome desktop has crashed in such cases.

Fedora Installation :: FC14 Installation Crashed To Grub Prompt

Dec 20, 2010

I decided to upgrade my FC installation to the latest version - FC itself offered the upgrade when I turned the machine on, so it appeared that it was nicely packaged to make the upgrade easy.After a long download of packages, the machine rebooted and then started taking me through configuration options (timezone, disks to use for the installation etc) but then it crashed trying to write to disk and now leaves me at a grub prompt whenever I boot.Is there any way to "get at" the installation files and get back into trying to install or do I now need to download an ISO and burn a DVD and start all over again?

Fedora Installation :: F15 Crashed - Won't Boot Even From DVD

Jun 21, 2011

I installed F15 a couple days ago without much difficulty (and upgraded the kernel to the most recent, along with all the accompanying applications). However, I wanted to enhance my experience with the terminals, etc. So, today, I installed a gnome-3 advanced tweak or something along those lines (I forget the exact name already). This is software that is supposed to allow us to specify user-defined shells (not active yet), modify the terminal bars, etc. After installation, a menu bar came up, which allowed me to run the application. I ran it and it crashed.

Then I went to the applications section and started that job again and the whole system just froze, showing just a rotating wheel (as if a process is in progress). Nothing worked. So, I manually shut the system down and turned it back on again; and all I saw was that turning wheel and a small half-inch by half-inch square box (with just noisy colors). I then inserted my F15 installation DVD (the same DVD I used to install my OS), and started the machine; and the response is exactly the same as before: just that turning wheel with the noisy small square box. When I move my mouse around the wheel moves about in response. But, the system is just frozen.

Ubuntu Installation :: When Go To Edit The Partitions - Won't Let Do Anything Due To An Apparent Lack Of A Root Filesystem

Mar 28, 2010

I'm having trouble installing it on a "new" computer that I found at Goodwill for $60 with no operating system on it. When I go to edit the partitions, it won't let me do anything due to an apparent lack of a root filesystem. (I know this issue has been brought up and resolved in the past, but the usual solution (going into the validation.py file) isn't working for me, as there is no line in this one that says "if not root".)

Fedora Installation :: 12 Hanging On Boot (most Times)?

Nov 26, 2009

I have just installed Fedora12 x86 64. On booting more often than not it hangs just before completing the login screen.I will try some of the options in the wiki. In the mean time has anyone else experienced this and resolved it.The odd thing is although the keyboard is not on, (num lock light goes out as boot starts and only comes back on if it has fully booted), the mouse will move around the screen but the click has no effect.Note the same behaviour was shown on the x86 64 live cd which I needed to install to enable me to create a bootable usb stick from the x86 64 DVD.

Fedora Installation :: F11 With Ext3 Instead Of Ext4 - Crashed Or Failed

Jun 14, 2009

It has crashed or failed to install on a known good system for the 5th time now. I have never had that problem with fedora before. I am now installing with ext3 instead of ext4. I am hoping for better success with it and will update. I was able to try MinGW with WINE before the first crash and I liked what I saw there. Only hoping to be able to get a good install this time.

Fedora Installation :: F12 DVD Has Error - Tried Burning And Downloading Several Times

Nov 21, 2009

I've downloaded the DVD version of Fedora 12 with a torrent so it shouldn't be corruped - checked the hash anyway and it wasn't - and I burnt it at a low speed and has my burning program verify that it did indeed burn what it was supposed to. I tested the disc for errors and every time it shows up that around the 70% mark that the DVD has an error.

Fedora 12 randomly crashes after a fresh install.Everything is left at its default during the installation except I install KDE and not Gnome.When I try to boot I hit esc at the splash screen to see where it hangs, but it never hangs at the same spot twice. Sometimes it hangs and sometimes it restarts. Its crashed everywhere from starting udev to the login screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: CD Doesn't Detect Partitions But No Apparent Overlapping Partitions?

Mar 3, 2010

Xubuntu 9.04 installation CD not detecting any of the current partitions. This all started when I reinstalled windows XP a few days ago.After, the computer wouldn't boot into GRUB and would boot directly into windows.Other threads have dealt with a similar issue, that of overlapping partitions causing libparted/parted/gparted to detect the whole drive as unallocated space. The problem in these threads seemed to be a corrupted partition table, in which the partitions overlapped with each other. So of course I checked the output of fdisk -l for overlapping partitions, but I don't see any obvious overlapping partitions. I've noticed that the partition that used to be linux swap isn't showing up in the partition table at all. I might just be missing something simple here and would like another set of eyes to help me figure this one out. Does the problem have anything to do with the partition table being out of order (ie. not in order of what regions they cover on the drive)? From the liveCD I've run


sudo fdisk -lu
sudo sfdisk -d
sudo parted /dev/sda print

and have received the following output:


ubuntu@ubuntu:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -lu
omitting empty partition (5)
Disk /dev/sda: 60.0 GB, 60011642880 bytes
