Fedora Networking :: LDAP Enabled - Machine Will Not Boot Past Starting Messagebus

Aug 18, 2009

I have a Fedora 11 PC, which I want to connect to the ldap server at my organisation. When my /etc/ldap.conf file is in place, the machine will not boot past "starting system messagebus" and just hangs there. I have to press the reset button, and boot it into single user mode, and remove /etc/ldap.conf, and only then will it boot. The ldap.conf file is fine, I think, because if you boot the machine up without ldap.conf, then log in.

I can put ldap.conf in place and immediately I can see all the user accounts etc. from the ldap server. If I then reboot, with ldap.conf in place, it hangs on boot again. I found a bug report for FC5 which stated this problem, but there was no solution. There was a workaround, making messagebus starting later in the boot process (move it from S22 to S27 in rc3/5.d), but that didn't help in my case.

My ldap.conf contains this (I've removed my actual ldap info):
host my.server.ip.addr
base dc=my,dc=dn
uri ldap://ldap.mydomain.com
ssl no
tls_cacertdir /etc/openldap/cacerts
pam_password md5
bind_policy soft

As I say, I think the ldap config is fine, because you can start it manually once the machine has booted up without an ldap.conf in place. I lifted it from a Centos client, which works fine and doesn't have the same problem with booting that Fedora does.

Hardware :: Pentium 4 Machine Does Not Boot Past VGA BIOS

Jul 1, 2011

I recently obtained a built machine that has an Intel motherboard. The computer had Windows XP on it, but the owner wanted me to format it completely before I started using it. Nbd, I just used a gparted live cd and formatted the 200gb Seagate it came with.
Well now, I think the drive is dead or something, because whatever machine I put it in, it doesn't boot.

So, being out the 200gb drive I was hoping to use, I just threw in a spare drive I had laying around. (This is isn't the point of this thread.)I planned to use the machine as a basic server, so I made a Debian install CD and just let the installer run (completing the appropriate prompts). However, usually towards the end of the installation, the machine completely kills itself. It just randomly shuts off. No message about it, just, "Click!" and the machine's dead. I know the installation doesn't complete, I've used the CD on other machines, and Debian will tell you that it's finished and getting your consent before turning off.

Upon trying to reboot the machine, after a few seconds of POST messages, it kills itself again. And again. What I've figured out is pressing the reset button a few times during boot usually gets to go eventually. I swapped the power supply out, but that didn't make a difference. I've tried different RAM. I swapped out the CMOS battery. Nothing seems to be working.. As of right now, it does not kill itself, but it will turn on and immediately it hangs on a a screen that says Nvidia Vanta VGA BIOS and some other video card info. After it started doing this is when I changed the CMOS battery.

The board is older, an Intel D845BG. The first power supply was 300w, as was the second. I also tried a 250w one with no results. The standby light on the motherboard does go on as soon as it gets power. I tried a different video card, just as a "why not?", and the machine still didn't boot, however that first POST line changed to 3D Prophet II, etc. or the name of the video and it reflected the change in video memory.

Ubuntu :: Starting FatRat On Boot On Headless Machine?

Aug 14, 2010

I recently installed FatRat on my headless system. I am having trouble starting the program on boot though. When I launch it using the -n switch for no gui, it uses the terminal window as a log file, which means I cannot put it in the bootup programs because the constant logging stops the next program in the list from starting.

Is there any way to launch fatrat without the gui, and letting it release the terminal for further commands after?

Fedora Networking :: VLAN Not Starting On Boot?

Jan 26, 2009

I just have installed FC 10 on a box that I will use as a router/firewall box. On the box I have three interfaces (eth0, eth0.704 (VLAN), and eth1). When the machine boots up, only eth0 and eth1 come up. If I run /etc/init.d/network restart, then eth0.704 will come up. If I add that command to rc.local, then all interfaces come up at boot.

I have the directive ONBOOT=yes in ifcfg-eth0.704. What would cause this vlan interface not to start at boot on the machine?

I think I need to disable network manager but I'm unfamiliar with the procedure in Fedora

Fedora :: Won't Boot Past BIOS ?

Jul 28, 2009

I've had FC11 x86_64 running for awhile based on an upgrade from FC10. I powered down one night then when I tried to boot the next day the system just sat at the BIOS prompt "Verifying DMI pool data...". I opened the case to check all cables - all fine. I've run a memtest, also fine. I then suspected a bad HDD so I ran the Seagate tools from the Ultimate Boot CD (fast test) and both HDDs came up fine. BIOS can see both disks fine, too. I stuffed around with fixmbr and fixboot and got one step further, with it sitting at "invalid operating system" or something like that. I was able to use Linux rescue mode to mount the old filesystems fine.

Today I've completely blown away all my old partitions and started from scratch. After successfully completing an install with custom disk layout (identical to old layout) it still just sits at "Verifying DMI pool data..". Do I have a bad sector in my boot block? Possible BIOS issue? Is there some tool to re-write the boot block?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Moving To Different Server - Won't Boot Past GRUB / Sort It?

Jun 11, 2010

I recently tried to clone a RHEL 4 system and migrate it to some different hardware (IBM Blade to an IBM x3650M2 rack mount). I'm getting an error when it tries to boot up. It gets past the grub part, but then errors out quickly with this error code...

I've done this before, but the other system I migrated didn't have a separate "/" and "/boot" partition. I think this may be why it's having an issue. It seems like "/boot" is actually /dev/sda1 and "/" is /dev/sda2 (from booting up RHEL rescue disk). I've tried changing fstab and grub.conf, but I think I may be missing something.

Fedora Hardware :: Won't Boot With IOMMU Enabled ?

Apr 20, 2011

I'm struggling with my computer to get it to run a Windows 7 x64 machine as domU with VGA passthrough using Xen and Fedora 14 as dom0.

The problem is that when I enable IOMMU in BIOS, it simply freezes during boot. If booting with the dom0 pvops kernel via Xen it stops at the "IOMMU enabled" message. If I boot the regular unpatched kernel without the Xen; all I see is naught but a blinking cursor at the upper left corner.

I tried booting from the Fedora 14 liveCD and the lubuntu 10.04 liveCD and they booth freeze in a simlar fashion afer I get past their bootloaders.

The Windows 7 partition boots just fine and I can do all sorts of stuff in it (such as conducting computationally intensive tasks) without problems.

Fedora Networking :: Getting A Machine To Update Its Machine Name In The DNS ServerSounds Doesn't?

Feb 20, 2011

I have an issue with the manner in which Network Manager is configuring the network and short of ditching Network Manager I can see no solution.The issue : Getting a machine to update its machine name in the DNS serverSounds simple doesn't it I operate a FreeBSD based firewall / DHCP / DNS server, using a default Network Manager DHCP configuration the Fedora clients do not register their names with the DNS server when they obtain an address.

I have traced the communications with Wireshark and the Fedora clients are NOT supplying the PC's hostname as part of the exchange so this is NOT a DNS server configuration issue. If I uncheck the option 'Automatically obtain DNS information from provider' under the DHCP settings the Fedora clients DO register the hostname that is put into the Hostname (optional) databox. They do NOT however store the DNS server IP address or any other records defined by the DNS server.

Is there some hidden settings or is this a bug because it isn't acceptable 'DHCP' behaviour if it isn't possible to automatically set DNS server IP addresses and at the same time register the hostname during the DHCP negotiation. Before it is said I know I can use a fixed DNS IP address but am not prepared to long term, I am also not prepared to define the Fedora clients with a 'static' IP. I am similarly not interested in playing around with scripts or any other such 'frigs' to achieve what should be a standard activity - registering a host with DNS during the DHCP negotiation.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Starting Wireless At Boot Time On SSH Box

Dec 31, 2010

I have a SSH box which is command line only and no X, this will be used remote and i'm trying to get the wireless network configured to start at boot. I'm using wpa_supplicant as the access point is secure with WPA2 At present if I send the following commands the machine will connect to the wifi and be reachable via ssh

ifup wlan0
/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -D wext -dd -i wlan0 -B
dhclient wlan0

This does not start at boot but requires manual input of the above commands. I've just come to a complete blank on geting this to start at boot time. Also I would like to set a fixed IP for this box.

Fedora Networking :: Both Cards Are Enabled And Set To Connect Automatically?

Nov 15, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13 on my desktop computer and ran into the same problems I did when I tried to install which was i could connect to a network but couldn't access the internet. I decided to install Fedora 14 since I already installed it on my laptop. I'm still running into the same issue, I can connect to my network but cannot connect to the internet using my PCI NIC or onboard NIC. Networking is enabled and I'm getting a IP address from my router. I ran "lspci" and it shows me both network cards which, please correct me if I'm wrong, makes me think that the drivers are installed.

I'm also curious if the VNC client/server could be used through a WAN. I would like to remote into my computer at home when I'm not there and see the gui. I had SSH installed at one point but it was just text. If there is better program please let me know. why I would have Services on my laptop but not on my desktop? Both computers are running the same version. Both cards are enabled and set to connect automatically. I can get a IP with both NICs. I only have one plugged in at a time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Prevent Apache2 Server From Starting At Boot?

Nov 18, 2010

One of my ubuntu 10.04 boxes starts apache2 server automatically at boot. I know from the output of the command:


sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 status

I can't remember even setting that up, and I don't think it does so by default, since my other box in fact does not even have apache2 server installed. I can stop the server once I login, but is there a way to stop it from automatically starting the server, or even better, completely uninstall the daemon. I tried


sudo apt-get remove apache2

but that does not work. I guess the daemon is part of some bigger package.

Ubuntu Networking :: Stop Network Manager From Starting On Boot?

Jul 10, 2011

I would like to stop network manager from starting up on boot. I have tried moving

/etc/init.d/network-manager stop
to rc.local and it did nothing but boot me into the CLI

I have also tried to put

sudo service network-manager stop and that did nothing also.

After I get network manager to stop on boot up. How do I make it so it will not auto connect to networks? My computer keeps on joining a different network on boot up. And I don't like this as some times I go to my banks website and I am on there network with out realizing it (because of the auto connect) Is there a way to stop this also?

Fedora Servers :: Vncserver Not Starting On Boot

May 21, 2009

I am currently using FC10 on a Dell 4600 with 2GB of ram. I love Linux as it is the most stable OS around. My end goal is to have the machine boot and start the vncserver automatically, eventually using an ssh tunnel to make it secure. My main problem is the vncserver is not starting on boot, I must login as a user then it works great. the error I get is


Basically what happens is the vncserver fails on boot however, if I login to the Fedora box I am able to connect and I get the GDM login screen. I have read many, many posts but have not been able to get over the boot issue. I really want to make this a headless box I can put in another room so I have more room for my musical gear.

Fedora :: DHCPD Service Not Starting On Boot

I just installed F12 from scratch and I'm facing a curious situation with dhpd. The service is enabled, but It fails to start on boot. I see the following error on /var/log/messages:

Fedora X86/64bit :: F10 Boot Stops At Starting UDev

Mar 29, 2009

I have done a fresh text-only installation of Fedora 10 on a Dell Dimension E521 for the purpose of setting up a server. After installation I ran yum update to bring the system up to date. After the update, I rebooted the computer, but the boot process froze. I recycled power and pressed "I" after the Dell BIOS screen and the GRUB bootloader appeared. I selected the most current version, edited the kernel line by deleting "rhgb quiet" and replacing it with "3." After making this change, I continued with the boot and the computer stopped at "Starting udev:" I have two fedora 10 revisions showing in the GRUB bootloader, the original installation and the update after running yum.

I repeatedly tried rebooting both versions and, after about 30 attempts, the computer finished booting and got me to the command prompt. Reading through the forums indicated there might be some issue with my nVidia GeForce 6150 onboard video and fedora 10. So, when I got to the command prompt, I followed the instructions in the forums [URL] to load the rpmfusion drivers. This appeared to be successful and when I looked at /etc/X11/xorg.conf it appeared to be correct for the new nVidia drivers. After loading these new drivers I tried rebooting. Unfortunately, I have been trying now over and over to get back to the command prompt, but simply can't get past "Starting udev."
