Fedora :: System Freezes After Checking Media During Installation

May 27, 2011

I tried installing F14 and F15 but display resulted in freezing. The display would work upto "Check Media/Skip Test" for media during installation and the system freezes immediately after that. So I did a VNC installation from another system. But the initiation of X would always result in hanging of the box. After googling and trying various solutions, I found a ray of hope in one solution which suggested adding "vesafb:mtrr,ywrap vga=0x318" to the kernel arguments. This resulted in displaying successfully the boot-time flash (Fedora logo being filled with white color) during booting. But "startx" or "inittab 5" result in hanging of the system.

The following is the relevant information:
I see 5 monitors and 5 cards!

# lspci | grep ATI

Fedora Installation :: F13 Install Freezes When Checking For Dependencies

Sep 1, 2010

Installing from a CD, and F13 constantly freezes at the same spot - "Checking dependencies in packages selected for installation" - gets stuck 1/3 to 1/2 thru.

Dell Dimension 2400, Celeron 2.4GHz, 768MB memory, 120GB drive.

I've used same CD set to install several other systems so CDs are good.

I did normal net upgrade after the official release of 10.10 yesterday evening. On reboot I get a frozen system with a blank screen. Checking via safemode, I find it is stuck when 'checking battery state' but this is a desktop machine! Apt update, uninstalling ubuntu-desktop, reinstalling ubuntu-desktop, etc.

Fedora Installation :: Upgraded To FC11 From FC10 / System Freezes / Hangs

Jun 24, 2009

I upgraded from FC10 to FC11 yesterday.I had no problems using FC11 after I looked into the bootloader (not intuitive - Ha!).Tried to boot up this morning; and things seemed to work well until I tried to call up Firefox (added a few themes yesterday).The window pops open; but the computer freezes on the spot with an alarm (generic "beep", w/o the finishing "p").Tried it with Epiphany; and I get the same results with the exception of actually getting to the Home Page.Yum works for the most part - I reinstalled Firefox (no effect); but couldn't reinstall epiphany (keeps saying "there is no such package - did you mean 'epiphany'". No typos on my part - go figure). Doing Software/Package Updates (via System Menu) freezes the box as well.Did it with the system monitor on. It doesn't appear to be related to CPU Usage.

Had a FC10 liveUSB and used it for awhile (e.g. to check out the forums). After giving my ISP some grief about downloading speed, immediately received a note from their Abuse Department, saying that my machine had been infected with a virus and had been sending spam emails (post upgrade to FC11).

Ubuntu :: Upgraded To 11.04 - Freezes On Checking Battery State

May 1, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 yesterday but when I try to run it now it freezes on checking battery state. I've did some looking in the forums and found this post. [URL] Which in turn pointed me to this page. [URL] I have an ATI Radeon 5450 so I went through the steps for Need to fully remove -fglrx and reinstall -ati from scratch

Now, when I try to start up the screen just goes blank as if I've turned the computer off. I can run the system in limited graphics mode (or whatever it's called) so I have the ability to do some troubleshooting there, but I'm a Windows convert and am pretty hazy as far as Ubuntu troubleshooting goes

Fedora Installation :: Checking For Libraries Currently In Use?

Jul 19, 2010

I have just installed from the Live Cd (Fedora 13). So far so good except that I have just installed the updates (which has taken some time) .

The updater screen shows a full progress bar and next to the progress bar is this text " checking for libraries currently in use" this has been at least one hour showing the same thing, it hasn't changed (PC is still running OK). Does this mean I can safely quit and the updates will be OK or should I keep waiting for a reboot screen or updates success message ? Is this normal, if so how long does it usually take to complete?

Ubuntu Installation :: System Freezes After Upgrade From 8.1 To 9.04?

Mar 14, 2010

After successfully upgrading from 8.04 to 8.1 (where even my wireless worked for the first time) I got a system freeze when I tried to upgrade to 9.04.

I suspect the graphics driver but don't know how to upgrade without X running. After booting in generic mode (kernel 2.6.28-1 I can log in the shell but am lost without the GUI.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Freezes After A While In Games

May 9, 2010

I had Ubuntu 9.10 .. upgraded to 10.04 LTS... i dunno if its the ati driver or what but when im on wine the games runs fine for a couple of minutes.. 5 to 10 maybe and then the whole system freezes.. cant close cant do anything... the mouse moves though .. and the sound keeps looping, thats if i use OGG on wine insted of ALSA... This looks like it should be on the wine segment but i dont think so... I mentioned wine cuz ATM wine is all i got on this pc as for games.... im downloading urban terror to see if it freezes too...

I remember that right after i finished installing ubuntu 9.10 i upgraded it right away to 10.04 without having the ati drivers installed, after the installation finished... the boot up logo from ubuntu with purple background was at its normal size as usual... But once i installed the drivers.. the ubuntu boot up logo or whatever its called went all BIG like if it was using another resolution, though once it finishes loading, the resolution goes back to normal when in login screen and desktop.

HOw do i remove the drivers completely? do i have to restart after removing them so i can install new drivers? should i use propietary drivers from amd site or the one found by system--- hardware drivers??? why cant i find envy at synaptics?

Ubuntu Installation :: System Freezes On Boot Up In 10.04?

Aug 27, 2010

Im running desktop dual boot system with two hard drives, one with Windows XP and the other with Ubuntu. Ive had no problems with this until now when I upgraded from Hardy to Lucid. Now I have problems with the system freezing on boot up.

Sometimes it will boot just fine, and at other times it will freeze before the login screen appears. When it does freeze, there are flashing lights on the keyboard and the floppy disk light (yes, its an old computer) is lit constantly. The only thing I can do is switch the computer off and hope it will boot up properly the next time.

When I did the upgrade there were a couple of files where the program asked if I wanted to keep the custom file or overwrite it with the maintainers file and I chose to keep the custom one. I THINK one of them might have been GRUB, but Im not sure.

Has anyone had a similar experience and were you able to cure it? I have seen a thread where people have had the system freeze on them, but Im not sure its QUITE the same thing.

Ive also done a clean install with Lucid on my laptop and have had no problems. The laptop is only running Ubuntu.

Im also wondering if reinstalling Grub on my desktop would solve the problem.

a. If so, would it still show both operating systems?

b. How do you do it?

Fedora Installation :: Fed 7 To 8 Upgrd, Hangs At Dependancy Checking?

Feb 6, 2009

Whenever I get to the dependancy check, it gets up to 99% and appears hung. I am in text, not GUI. Any idea why or if I just need to wait longer? I waited about 1/2 hour. Also, on newer versions, there seems to be no text install option. I saw in the stickies there is this option, and I was wondering how to get to it? I hit the function keys to get different menus while installing fedora 10 on my laptops but just can find a place to type text. I'm no guru, but I've been around the block and I'm just faster at the old text way. Old fart you might

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuck On 9.10 - System Freezes On Last 3 Releases

May 11, 2011

I have been a happy Ubuntu user for several years. But I am stuck with version 9.10 because of a persistent problem with random lockups with both mouse and keyboard. A search on the forums both within and without the Ubuntu community shows that a lot of other people have this same problem. There have been a lot of suggestions given and I have tried everything I could find, but without success. I have tried clean installs of vs. 10.04, 10.10, and 11.04 but all have the same problem.

The computer will work fine for a few minutes to a few hours and then just lock up. The only way out is a hard reset. Someone suggested that the latest versions of Ubuntu have a problem with some of the newer Intel chipsets, but I don't know enough to be able to say one way or the other. I am running an ASUS P7P55D motherboard with a 4 core Intel i5 processor and an Nvidia graphics card. I have tried the latest version of the bios for the P7P55D but that hasn't helped either. Vs 9.10 is no longer supported and I am being left behind.

Fedora :: System Freezes Temporarily For 5 - 15 Seconds

Jul 11, 2009

The system runs just fine then all of a sudden it "freezes". For example an input box doesn't respond nor can I scroll down the page. But when the system comes out of the freeze 5-15 seconds later, it suddenly does all the input that was used during the freeze. The scroll and letters suddenly show up. I don't loose mouse control and I can do some other system functions but not all of them.

Here are some various system info's

Fedora :: System Freezes Randomly - How To Troubleshoot

Mar 26, 2010

I am running the Nvidia driver. My system freezes randomly. I've had to reboot my system over 5 times today alone. When it freezes, everything is frozen, even the second hand on the analogue clock. One more issue, and I'm not sure if it's related, my stupid screen goes black after 5 minutes of no typing or mouse movement. This never happended when I first installed it. The issue just started within the last 3 weeks. Kpackage Kit is hidden. I was using it to do my automatic updates. Now I just use yum. between the time I first installed Fedora 12 and now, something has happened to my build to cause these issues.

Fedora :: Random And Annoying System Freezes In F13

Aug 7, 2010

I'm getting very random full system freezes with F13. The keyboard stops responding completely. Sometimes the mouse (and the mouse only) still works. I those cases, I can log in via ssh, kill kdm, and everything goes back to normal until the next freeze. However, in most cases, I have to do a hard reboot. Sometimes the system goes on for days without a problem, and sometimes it freezes 10 times in a day (It's in one of those days that the bug-screen saved me from flying out the window). I also had this problem on F12. I'm not sure if its video-driver related as both nvidia and nouveau experience this behaviour. In fact, I'm not at all sure what the cause may be.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Freezes After Upgrade - No Live USB Works

Feb 5, 2011

I was running 10.04 with no problems. Upgraded. I may or may not have lost power before the upgrade was finished. Now my system locks out the keyboard and mouse on the login screen...nocapslock light or anything, but I know it's still running because the clock at the bottom increments once per minute. Booting safemode does not help, it simply hangs at some point on the scrolling black screen instead.I can boot 9.04, which is still installed on another partition, just fine.Is there any way I can boot to a terminal and try running apt-get again, to see if I can fix whatever's wrong?

Fedora :: Operating System Freezes After Desktop Loads

Sep 4, 2009

Just recently installed fedora 11 64-bit on my laptop. Everything was fine until today. Everytime I boot up, it crashes right after the desktop loads. Everything is loaded except the area where the running programs are on the taskbar is just one big white block. And a bubble popup says "New SELinux security alert. AVC denial." but everything is frozen. Can't move the cursor or use keyboard. and nothing is happening on the screen. Completly frozen. Anybody have any ideas on what is wrong and how to fix it?

Fedora :: Nvidia's Latest Driver Freezes System

Jun 26, 2011

Lately (F14 and F15), Nvidia's drivers have been making my system freeze unexpectedly when running X. The only work around I have is reverting to an older driver (173.14.30). Although no freezes occur when using the older one, I need the latest one to run a few games sometimes. The odd thing is that when running these games within Wine while having the latest driver installed prevents the system from its usual freeze. I'd just like to solve this problem so I don't have to consistently revert back and forth from the two. I have a Nvidia Geforce 8800m gts and I am running F15 x86_64.

General :: Fedora 14 Freezes While Starting System Logger

Jun 13, 2011

I'm having trouble starting Fedora 14 on my computer. The startup procedure freezes while starting system logger. Before this started happening, I had formatted one of my logical disk partitions which is supposed to be mounted under the /var directory. I think may be the cause of this problem. However, I don't know how to fix it, as I can't get into the Linux command line to do a umount. I don't have a CD with which to repair the system, so is there any way to fix this problem without one?

Ubuntu Installation :: Freshly Installed System Freezes Just After Loading Screen

Jan 27, 2010

I recently upgraded from Hardy to 9.10 Kubuntu. The install went smoothly, and when I boot up, the loading screen (the one with the progress bar) does its thing. Then I see the 'waiting' cursor (in Kubuntu, the two dots chasing each other around in a circle). I see this for about two to three seconds, then the entire thing freezes up and I can't do anything, including switching to a virtual console. How do I figure out my system's dying words so I can figure out what's going wrong? As a (sort of) aside, when I open files in /var/log for reading with cat <file> | less, I have to Page-Down a whole bunch to get to the most recent stuff. Is there a way to jump to the bottom, or read with something other than what I have been using?
