Fedora :: Stuck In Infinite Loop On Login After Changing Wallpaper?

Aug 17, 2011

Fedora 15, fresh install.I changed the wallpaper from default to a solid colour. After switching between gradient to colour the system crashed logged me out and upon logging in it simply runs endlessly accessing my harddisk but never actually loading the desktop.I can kill X and reboot, but it's the same problem waiting for me on restart. I really don't want to re-install or delete users (to put it in context, I just spent 3 days trying to install Fedora because Anaconda doesn't know how to install GRUB correctly).

Sep 16, 2010

I have recently been running into the "EQ overflowing" message. It has been happening when I open an image with gimp or a xls with open office. I noticed some were having this issue with earlier kernels. I am using the nouveau driver to run two nvidia cards with three monitors. I am currently running the kernel. Here is the output of my Xorg.0.log file:

I run Slackware 13.1. Kindly asking to help me to solve that irritating issue. I pasted errors usually I find at Xorg.0.log.old after hard reboot only

Programming :: Infinite Loop That Isnt Infinite?

Oct 27, 2010

i was playing around with c++ recently and for laughs and giggles i came up with this little program

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()


theoretically that should be an infinite loop but it in fact does terminate eventually echoing out 'FIRE!'

just wondering if even though in theory this should be an infinite loop (a number repetedly divided by 2 should never reach 0 thus the conditions of the loop should never be satisfied, hence infinite loop) perhaps in practice limitations of the variable types prevent this?

Debian Multimedia :: X.Org Infinite Loop Bug In Squeeze?

Mar 25, 2010

I think i came across a bug in X server in squeeze. I would report it to the bug tracking system in debian packages but the think is I am not entierly sure about it.When i start X (whether it is through startx or service gdm start or auto startup through init when the pc boots) the computer PC seems to lock up.The screen goes black right after X initializes and before anything is show in the screen and if i wait a about 10 minutes the monitor either goes in standby or out of range. PC seems unresponsive to both keyboard commands and mouse but my LCD screen in my G15shows the time skips 1 sec every 2 sec (from 19:22:22 goes straight to 19:22:24).

I have a custom 2.6.33 kernel which i build but it happens with both 2.6.32-trunk and 2.6.32-3 offical kernels from the squeeze repository so i dont think that this is the problem.My PC is a P4 3.75Ghz with 2Gb RAM and an NVidia 6800GT with the binary drivers from nvidia. I have tried diffrent versions from my grapgics drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.25-pkg1.run & NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.15-pkg1.run) with no change in the behaviouThis is the syslog from the time my pc started and then "stuck". I left it for some time before i hard reset it

Software :: Detecting An Infinite Loop In A Process?

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to develop a process monitor, or use existing monitors to achieve the below given actions.

1) Restart a processes if it crashes.
2) Restart a processes if it is stuck in an infinite loop.

The sample code below describes the structure of the process.

statement 1....
statement 2....
while (1)


The goal is to restart the process if it is stuck in a loop, inside the outer while loop. Given this scenario, what would be the most efficient way to monitor such a process?

A sample solution would look something like this: statement 3 will write to file1 every time it is executed and we know that the maximum execution time of the outer while loop is 30 seconds. A second, timer driven process, checks for file1 being modified every 30 seconds. If the file is not modified, process 1 will be restarted assuming, process1 is stuck in a while loop.

General :: Xinetd Server Configuration - Infinite Loop?

Apr 14, 2011

I have a java server console program that I have configured xinetd to start when connection comes in on a given port and then the program runs in an infinite loop receiving inputstream from telephone exchanges. The thing is, when a new chunk of stream comes from the exchange xinetd forks a new process each time. I tried setting the wait parameter to yes and restarted the deamon, but no success. How can I stop this behavior and have the deamon just direct the stream to the process already running? Am I missing something in my config or is it just incorrect?

My config is as follow:
instances = 60
log_type = SYSLOG authpriv
log_on_success = HOST PID
log_on_failure = HOST
cps = 50 10
includedir /etc/xinetd.d

And then my actual config,
service aos_larmar
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = root
wait = yes
instances = 256
server = /home/gunnl/java/start.sh
port = 5204
disable = no

My server OS is, Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 7)

Ubuntu :: Infinite Boot Cycle Loop After Grub

Jan 26, 2011

When I boot one of my machines, it gets as far as GRUB, then proceeds to a blank screen for a second, and then repeats the cycle all over again - ad infinitum. I have tried previous kernels on the list with the same results Also, I cant boot into recovery mode either.

I have run Memtest successfully from the GRUB options and no errors appear in the results. I have tried booting from a Live CD and here I get as far as the "OS choosing screen". When I then select one and hit Enter, the screen goes blank and the machine reboots as before.

Ubuntu :: Stop The Infinite Loop Splash Page In 10.10?

Feb 15, 2011

I upgraded to 10.10, system rebooted but it is stuck at a constant loop.

I can go into safe graphics mode and things look fine except compiz isn't running. I have tried going into login and changing it to log me in automatically but the problem remains.

I've tried using my previous kernal and I have the same issue as this newer one.

I've tried loading gdm from CLI and the problem is still there.

Ubuntu :: Infinite Startup Loop - OEM / Black Screen

Apr 18, 2011

I'm doing a dual boot Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows 7 on my Asus UL80v. When I restart and keep going into Ubuntu I'm fine, but I think if I go to Windows and then restart, the infinite start up happens, and I'm currently stuck in this. It'll go to the OEM screen, then a black screen with a cursor, then it goes black, and then back to the OEM screen and so on and so forth.

Luckily I have Ubuntu 10 on my flash drive, so I'm booting to that while I try to figure out this. Which reminds me, when I use the flash drive, there's an option to boot to local disk which also does not work, if that's worth anything. Before this happened, I ran check disk on windows because I ran into some partition troubles. There seemed to be no problems, and I can still access the drives from this flash Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Printing Gets Infinite Loop Of Blank Pages?

Jun 25, 2011

I installed Xubuntu and was thrilled to see that it had already setup my Brother HL-2140 USB laser printer.However, there is something seriously wrong with the setup. When you try and print, even a test page - it just churns through the entire paper tray printing nothing. Also, when you restart the computer it tries to print the jobs again. I went to Printing and selected the printer but could not find where you could see the print job queue. I did see it during troubleshooting and was able to delete the jobs on the troubleshooting screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Shell Goes Into An Infinite Loop After Upgrading To 10.10?

Oct 20, 2010

I have just upgraded from 10.4 to 10.10 (x64), and now when I run gnu screen the new shell session goes into an infinite loop displaying:

Quote: Linux dave-desktop 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:45:36 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu 10.10

Welcome to Ubuntu! * Documentation: [URL]...

0 packages can be updated.
0 updates are security updates.

repeatedly until I hit CTRL-C and break out of screen. I tried tmux and that did the same thing, so it is a problem with the shell initialisation rather than with the screen program. However I can start bash, zsh or sh directly in a terminal with no problem.

Mar 31, 2011

I tried installing a wallpaper and it said that I would have to open up a web browser to view it, but when I did it launched over and over again, and I couldn't even properly shutdown, I had to hold down the power button. But it seems fine now, but from now on I'm avoiding downloading Wall Paper that requires you to use a web browser to view and download.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Wallpaper Changes Disappear On Next Login?

Aug 13, 2009

The problem is after I change wallpaper, logout and log back in the wallpaper reverts back to the previous wallpaper. Here's what I did from fc10 64-bit:

From System->Preferences->Look And Feel->Appearance choose Background tab.
Frolm Background tab click Add button and browse for the .jpg in ~/Wallpaper

Now wallpaper changes but doesn't persist on logout. Could a folders or config file have the wrong permissions?

Ubuntu :: Stuck In Loop After Upgrade

Sep 19, 2010

I just upgraded to 10.04 Netbook Remix.When I boot, it gets past the splash screen and to the desktop. Before it can load anything, it acts as if it is looping. The wallpaper loads, the screen blinks white and then it loads the wallpaper again... then a white screen, then the wallpaper.I've tried to bring up the terminal and can't do that. I've also rebooted in recovery mode which didn't help.I'm at a loss. I'm on a windoze machine now since I can't get on my netbook.

Ubuntu :: Stuck In A Log-in Screen Loop?

Dec 26, 2010

Not sure exactly how to describe it. I'll try to get a video for reference. The log-in screen comes up, I type in my password, hit enter, and the screen goes black and the log-in screen comes back up. I'm currently using a BackTrack installation (it sucks) and I'd like to go back to an OS that connects to the internet automatically, instead of me having to redo everything from a terminal upon startup

Fedora Installation :: GUI And F14 Won't Boot - Goes Into A Loop Between The Login Page

I removed the LXDE and XFCE packages and now when I try to boot into F14 it goes into a loop between the login page and the fedora icon with blue background showing a X over the icon. In other words, it is looping between the login screen and the previous screen. I think I broke it good. Is there anyway to recover from this?

Ubuntu :: Changing Log-in Wallpaper In 10.04?

Jul 25, 2011

I just wrote a little script to help anyone out if they want to do this. Just download loginWallpaper.sh open your terminal and cd to the download directory run


sudo chmod 744 loginWallpaper

then run



and follow the prompts Make sure the pic you want to use is a .JPG and is in your home directory. Choose Option 1 on your first run. It will move the pic to the proper directory on the system and will open the Gnome Appearance Preferences at the log-in screen. After you run Option 1 logout, goto Background then Add button. Select your wallpaper and "BOOM" it changes. Log back in and run the script again



only use Option 2 to keep the Gnome Appearance Preferences from opening again.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Stuck In Loop As No Net Connection?

Jan 22, 2010

I haven't come across this bit of 'elitism' before but it seems with this install one MUST have a working net connection. Why is this? How do people without net at all get to install Karmic Koala?

I am using the alternate install from a USB stick (UNetbootin) and I have to use a separate USB WiFi dongle (not the Wifi built into this Thinkpad T43). The installer does not recognise the difference, so consequently it fails to find the dongle and gets stuck in a loop between 'Net access failed' and 'Searching for a local mirror' - I don't understand why it needs a mirror at this stage anyway as I downloaded the correct and complete .iso

Major catch22 for me as I am attempting a fresh install due to the upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 having totally screwed up my system - no ALSA, App menu gone doo-lally, etc etc - far too much mess to sort out.

On top of that, the trackpoint button has stopped working altogether and no amount of Fn+F8 switching makes any difference. Hmm.

Edit: Trackpoint somehow got disabled in BIOS during above aborted install.

Ubuntu :: Stuck At Log-in Loop / Is GNOME Broken?

Dec 28, 2010

When I boot into Ubuntu, it goes to the log in screen. I can type in my password and then the screen flashes black and then the log-in screen comes back. If I boot into recovery mode, I can log in via terminal, but if I type startx it just brings up a black screen and a mouse cursor and that's it. Did GNOME get messed up? How would I fix it? I have an Ubuntu LiveCD that I can use, so if I have to install any packages or something, would I be able to download them in the livecd and just install them on my broken installation instead of having to figure out connecting to wifi in a terminal?

Ubuntu :: 10.4 Clean Install - Stuck In Password Loop

Feb 2, 2011

I have been trying to get ubuntu 10.4 running on a Packard Bell Easynote r1004. Having had problems with 9.10 I tried 10.4 first booting from the live cd to test compatibility and was supprised when I was presented with a logon screen. Of cause I could not logon as there was no password setup. So I rebooted and went for a clean install. I set a username and password in the install process. When installed I entered the correct password, and it looked for about a second that all was going to be well, but then the password screen reappeared. I tried entering again in case of a type and even entering an incorrect password. The incorrect password was correctly rejected. I have reinstalled 3 times with 3 different copies of the cd all copies are official copies and they work on other pc's. It just returns to the passsword screen each time you enter the password.
