Fedora :: Interactive Startup Not Working?

Feb 20, 2011

My problem is: One of my services has failed to start. All I need is just go into interactive startup and ignore that service. The system is encrypted as LUKS. I press 'i' before and after entering the phrase (it asked me "Password for filesystem"). But interactive startup seems not working. All the services go to start without my permission. I mean there is no question such as "Start XXX [Y/N]?"

In the past I used CentOS for some months, and interactive startup (by pressing 'i' on boot time) was fine. I could allow or not what service should be started.

I have googled and found these:

Fedora :: Boot Sequence Of 11 Using Lvm - Message - Press '1' To Enter Interactive Startup ?

Jun 15, 2010

I've been fiddling about with vortexbox (the one before 1.4 I think), for a while. This is a music ripping and server rpm setup using Fedora 11 as the base.

As it was on a test machine, decided to try changing the logical volume sizes of LogVol00 and LogVol02 to fit a few more cd's on 02 before getting a new pc (just to see how it works).

Logged on and opened up the graphic version of lvm (using gnome). Then selected the LogVol02 logical volume, select edit, changed name to LogVol02-Storage, saved and logged out. Rebooted vortexbox since then its been unable to start properly (is this a kernel panic?).

Read up a lot on lvm on the net, have access to Fedora 11 disk 1, so logged on. Eventually managed (I thought to) to change LogVol02-Storage to LogVol02 using lvrename.

However, still refuses to boot completely.

The message it gives is as follows (sort of): Welcome to Fedora Press '1' to enter interactive startup

Setting up Logical Volume Management: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group 'VolGroup00' now active

*** An error occurred during file system check.
*** Droping you to a shell; the system will reboot when you leave the shell.

Give root password for maintenance (or type Control-D to continue):

Loving vortexbox appart from this. Will it be easier just to reinstall everything? If so, is there a way of listing all the changes I've done so I can reproduce (I'm thinking of just looking at all the commands I ran on the CLI).

Otherwise, is there a way of listing all of the commands I ran in terminal and piping them into a file so I can see what I need to do to rebuild after reinstalling?

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.4 PHP5 Interactive Readline Not Working?

Apr 25, 2011

I just installed openSuse for the first time the other day. I'm trying to get my web development tools up and going and I've hit a little snag.After installing php5 I tried to use interactive mode on the command line (php -a) but I didn't get the nice line-edit-capable prompt I'm used to. A little research told me I needed to install readline support, so I installed the php5 readline package. The thing is even though `php -m` now shows the readline module is loaded I still don't get the line-edit support

Fedora Networking :: Auto-mount With Samba - Isn't Working During Startup ?

Jul 24, 2011

I have edited my /etc/fstab file in order to have it automatically mount a windows network share at startup.

The problem is, that it isn't really working during startup. After I log in, in order to make it mount I have to open the terminal and enter "mount -a".

The following is my fstab file:


I suspect this has something to do with my laptop not having made a network connection when the entries are mounted, but I'm not sure. How would I go about finding out about any errors?

Programming :: How To Turn Non-interactive Shell Into Interactive Shell?

Feb 4, 2011

I have a situation where I am in a non-interactive shell. I have tried from within my non-interative shell to spawn an interactive shell but my output still does not goto me. Isn't there a way I can somehow go into /proc or somwhere and make the output my /dev/tty1? Or some way else to remedy this?The situation arises because I drop from my restricted shell environment (a sort of CLI interface), into the actual Linux shell. I cannot change the code of the CLI environment I am just faced with being in the linux shell environment and its non-interactive. Its very annoying to have to put > /dev/tty1 after every command I type.

Not to mention it seems damn near impossible to get pagers like more and less to work properly when your in a non-interactive shell.

Ubuntu :: Graphics Not Working On Startup?

Jul 2, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 through WUBI, but when the installation finished and I went to turn the computer on to Ubuntu, I could not get graphics working. It would appear that the resolution has been set super-high somehow, because a message will pop up saying that I don't have enough video memory to run at the resolution I'm trying. I have tried xfix in recovery modeI don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I'm using a very old monitor.

Ubuntu :: 10.4 Startup Scripts Not Working?

Aug 9, 2010

I downloaded Lucid and installed Mysql and Apache2.I am very familiar with this setup and don't see a reason why this should not work.apache2 and mysql scripts are already located in /etc/init.d chkconfig shows the following:

apache2 on
mysql 2345

ps -aux does not show these processes running after a reboot. the services start manually without any problems. there is nothing in the logs that shows it's even trying to startup at boot. What has changed in the new Ubuntu version? I need this fixed through command line only.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alsa Not Working At Startup?

Aug 2, 2010

My audio was working just fine up until today, when I was working on some audio production stuff. I did QjackCtl, and also ran pulse-jack so I could use another app not in jack. Now, upon a boot up, there is no gnome-volume-control-applet or gnome-volume-control running. When I run gnome-volume-control it says there is no sound device (without Jack running). When I do it with Jack and Pulseaudio running (doing QjackCtl and pulse-jack), gnome-volume-control shows info about jack, but no hardware. I have sound, I just can't affect it volume-wise, etc. When I run pacmd I get this:

$ pacmd
Daemon not responding.

When I close QjackCtl I then get an error in a window that says merely: Waiting for sound system to respond.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Stops Working On Startup

Apr 15, 2011

Sometimes Ubuntu 10.04 will get into a state where the system stops booting when it apparently attempts to initialize the USB keyboard (keyboard goes dead and never lights up again)(Saitek Eclipse II keyboard).

It either works, or doesn't work consistently regardless of reboot. I don't know what makes it stop working. (Or start working) Recovery mode doesn't work either. Or the saved -21 kernal.

I have an ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 and have the -30 generic kernal.

I can dual-boot into WinXP just fine.

Ubuntu :: Isn't Plymouth (themes) Working On Startup

Jun 15, 2011

I installed the earth sunrise plymouth theme with super boot manager, and it worked, but only when I was turning it off, it still works when I'm turning it on, except it sits there for like 30 seconds blinking an underscore and then the theme starts up and does nothing for about 3 seconds (it doesn't animate or whatever), and then the gdm screen comes up, so why isn't plymouth really working on startup? and is there a way to fix it?

Ubuntu :: Black Screen On Startup Then Frozen After Working For Sometime

Dec 10, 2009

Not beeing an expert on Ubuntu, but loving it running on my old Dell Dimension 2400 Series, I do have some issues after the upgrade to 9.10.

1) Frozen screen after a while working with the system. Cursor moves, but frozen
2) Black screen at startup.

Retyping this message again on my Mac Laptop as Ubuntu froze again. I took the following action: Followed directions as listed here [URL]

1. Select recovery mode from the boot menu.
2. Select login as root from the menu in recovery mode.
3. Type this at the prompt
# sudo apt-get remove xorg-driver-fglrx
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
4. Exit
# exit
5. Now select Resume normal boot from the menu.

Every thing should be OK by now. This seemed to work, but after another reboot, black screen again. System Specs: [URL]. Running with 1 GB of Memory and 320Gb Hard Disk /w 2Gb Swap and 318 Gb Extended.

OpenSUSE Install :: Deleted TMP - USB Mouse And Keyboard Not Working On Startup

Jul 14, 2010

Was running out of room on / and set in Yast to delete /tmp on startup. Also deleted /var/log and /var/tmp while logged in. Rebooted and now mouse and keyboard (both USB) not working. Keyboard works on grub menu. Also works now in XP. Tried reconnecting (sync & plug unplug) different usb ports and nothing. Gave it a few minutes on startup and still nothing. Plugged in a PS2 keyboard and the lights just blink after startup and it will not work either.

Ubuntu :: Run Interactive Script After Login

Jan 26, 2011

I need to run a script that prompts the user for some input and takes action based on that input. It must run at the end of the login process, after the desktop is displayed.I tried putting it in ~/.bash_login, but it didn't run. Do I need to tell /etc/profile to run ~/.bash_login? I thought it looked for it & ran it if it was found.

A related question would be - Can I make it so the terminal session that is running the script be the only thing that the user can do? In other words, they can't click on anything on the desktop or in the panels and have it run until after they respond to the input request.

Security :: Gpg - Passphrase Goes Interactive With V1.1.8-4.fc13

Aug 4, 2010

I need an non-interactive, symetric, passphrase mechanism that can be used on machines beyond my sys-admin control. Currently, I use the Python code (with variants):

Stat, Output = commands.getstatusoutput(
"gpg -c --passphrase=%s '%s'"%(Password, TarFileName))

to encrypt and decrypt files (tar balls). The "Password" is generated by a Python code on a singular removable flash drive. It worked with FC11 and Windows, but with FC13 I get an interactive dialog, which gets canceled, and then: can't connect to `/home/{a user id}/.gnupg/S.gpg-agent': No such file or directory

gpg-agent[3432]: command get_passphrase failed: Operation cancelled
gpg: cancelled by user
gpg: error creating passphrase: Operation cancelled
gpg: symmetric encryption of `testdata' failed: Operation cancelled

The operator does not know the pass phrase. This is a single user mechanism which relies upon the mounting of the special flash drive to work. The application is portable across many platforms and hosts, but can only be used by the possessor of the flash drive.

Programming :: Testing Interactive Shell $- $PS1

Mar 22, 2010

I'm writing a bash script that can be run by crontab or by a user interactively.

If the script is run by a user interactively, it will ask for a parameter interactively.

If the script is run by the crontab, it validates if a command line parameter is provided.

In doing so, I cannot get these tests to work inside the bash script


This shell is not interactive

How the tests be done inside a script?
