Jan 14, 2009

I'm using Fedora 10 64-bit, with all the latest upgrades. I'm on a Sony VAIO, if the model would affectFor some reason, while I am working, Fedora will suddenly freeze up: no applications will do anything, but for some strange reason, my mouse can move. It can't do anything, none of the buttons respond except for the mouse (and the power button)

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Update Error - Forced To Shut Down Via Terminal

May 3, 2015

I have recently updated my GNOME installation from 3.x to 3.14. Suddenly, there are many glitches. The power buttons on the power menu does nothing, I am forced to shut down via the terminal, everything goes black every now and again, and there is a weird colour pattern behind some icons when I hover over them. But most importantly, the icons and text do not show up on the "Activities -> Show Applications -> All" menu. They still there, as you can see the opening animation before they disappear, and I can click on them, but you just can't see them. The "Frequent" menu works fine. Here is a YouTube video I have made to explain my problem.

I did change the icons, but this was after these problems started happening, and so it should be un-related.

Fedora :: Mount 15 Partition - Suddenly Shut Down During An Update - System Won't Boot Anymore

Aug 8, 2011

I recently switched from fedora 14 to 15. Today my computer suddenly shut down during an update, as I thought it overheated I decided to clean the cooling system and reapply thermal paste. However, now the system won't boot anymore ("kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root FS on unknown-block").

I would like to either solve this booting problem, or mount the fedora 15 filesystem and recover some files. Whichever is easier.

I have another drive with fedora 14 (antec below) which boots fine:

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Shut Down Became Slow Suddenly

Aug 24, 2010

Shut down speed all of a sudden became slow.. I'm running 10.04 on a dual core 3.2gig cpu with 4 gig ram. Boot up is in seconds and shut down was almost instant. Now shut down takes about 15 seconds. Is there a way to see what is causing ubuntu to hang when shutting down?

Ubuntu One :: Preferences Freezes - Online Account Login System Forced To Change My Password

May 2, 2010

Yesterday Ubuntu One stopped syncing properly: all files and folders were listed on the web site grayed out and tagged with "uploading", while there was "0 bytes Used". I could still upload files manually to the website fairly quickly, so it probably wasn't purely server overload. Anyway, a number of things happened after that:uninstalled the Ubuntu One client packages and reinstalled them in Account settings on the website, I removed my computer, hoping to make a fresh start the Ubuntu online account login system for some reason forced me to change my password (presumably it wasn't strong enough)

After all that, I can still login to the website (with the new password), but the computer can't login. When I type u1sdtool -s in terminal, the result is


When I open Ubuntu One Preferences from the Me menu, it completely freezes at the Account tab; I can't click anything or even close it (have to kill it in terminal).

I suppose the login failure has to do with the old password whcih was saved in the keyring. The removed computer from the account probably complicates the issue.

Ubuntu :: EEE PC Freezes Up On Shut Down / Restart

May 16, 2011

I love Ubuntu, and I've been using it ever since a friend of mine recommended it last year. The problem I've been having lately is that no matter what version I use, and how I install it, it keeps freezing up on shut down and/or restart. It's been doing that for the past 6 months or so, and I had stopped using it for awhile, because I wanted to wait for the latest release and see if it keeps happening. Well it does...

I am currently using the new windows installer, wubi, and I don't see any difference from the way it was before, when I installed it directly, not through Windows... I keep seeing the same problem, however, and I am really starting to get tired of it.

Slackware :: After Some Hours Of Using 64 13.37 It Suddenly Freezes?

May 3, 2011

I have slackware 13.37-64 bit with nvidia gforce 210. Since i did the installation and use the default graphic card driver (nouveau) i see that after some hours of using it suddenly freezes. I can't do anything, even use alt_ctl_backspace or alt_ctl_del for reboot, so i use the button of the pc to reboot. The only thing that i have noticed is that it happens that every time it freezes i am using firefox. But i don't know if it has every relation with this. Since i'm not very experienced user and can't understand the log files i have put here the pieces of /var/log/syslog and /var/log/messages related to the time that the freeze happens:


May 3 01:29:51 slaris udevd[1517]: bind failed: Address already in use
May 3 01:29:51 slaris kernel: [ 0.281291] ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LN0A] enabled at IRQ 19

Fedora X86/64bit :: Running F11 I586 On Laptop / System Shut Off (not A Normal OS Shut Down, But A Sudden Power Off Without Warning)?

Oct 13, 2009

Offlate I installed F11 i586 on my laptop. F11 shares the hard disk with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The problem is that when running F11 (or even Ubuntu), my system shut off suddenly(not a normal OS shut down, but a sudden power off without any warning). This could have been a hardware trouble(heating) but it doesn't happen with Vista.
Machine specifications:
Maker: Toshiba
Model: Satellite L305D-S5881
AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor RM-70
3072 MB 800 MHz SDRAM
I don't want to open up my machine unnecessarily, if it isn't a hardware issue.
I am not sure how to verify the bit length of the machine and the OS and does it create a compatibility issue ?
Your advise would be highly appreciated.

Debian Configuration :: NFS Mountpoint - Access To The Files Suddenly "freezes"

Sep 23, 2010

I have an NFS on my desktop, and mount it from my laptop: /mnt/reddevil_nfs nfs rsize=8192,wsize=9182,timeo=9 Occasionally, access to the files suddenly "freezes". For example, if I try to run "ls /mnt" from the client, nothing will be printed, Ctrl-c does nothing, and the prompt never reappears; or, if I try to view that directory from thunar, thunar will freeze, or if I am playing a video from the share in mplayer, mplayer will freeze. I tried to unmount it:

umount -f /mnt/reddevil_nfs
umount2: Device or resource busy
umount.nfs: /mnt/reddevil_nfs: device is busy
umount2: Device or resource busy
umount.nfs: /mnt/reddevil_nfs: device is busy

Fedora :: Forced Kernel Removal - Wouldn't Boot

Sep 5, 2010

When I was installing the last kernel update, the system informed me that I had to remove the kernel that was 2 back. The new kernel wouldn't boot and I reported the bug via bugzilla. I got a response within a day that a new kernel had been posted on koji and I was aked to try and see if it resolved my problem. When I installed it I was again forced to remove the kernel that was 2 back. This left me with only 1 known working kernel and if this new one hadn't worked, another attempt would have put me out of business.

What enforces this apparent rule of only 3 kernels. I upgraded from F10 to F13. F10 would let me keep as many kernels as I wanted and I could clean up old ones when appropriate. How can I disable this? I really need to be able to keep several kernels on the system at any given time.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Whole Cluster Freezes When One Of Nfs Server Freezes / Sort It?

Jun 27, 2011

We are having a cluster with couple of disk servers, compute nodes and a head node. Disk server is nfs mounted on all the compute and head nodes.
The problem is that if any of the disk servers hangs, it freezes rest of the cluster too which is dangerous. Ideally, cluster should not care about the hanged server and run without any problem except files from that server is not visible.
Is there any way I could avoid the problem of freezing cluster because of one hanged server?

Fedora :: Computer Won't Shut Off Unless - 'turn Black' And Become Unresponsive

Mar 3, 2011

My computer won't shut off unless I just hold down the power button. Everytime I try System > Shut Off it just turns off, then restarts. My computer screen will sometimes just 'turn black' and become unresponsive, and I have to shut it down and restart. (The longest I waited was a few minutes with no response. How do I get customized mouse pointers? When I download something and 'extract' it, how do I know which file I'm supposed to open after I click 'show the files'? I've downloaded a few things and extracted them but I'm assuming I must do more, since they are not on my applications. Which is the best browser to use on Fedora? I love Opera, but for some reason my internet is twice as slow on Opera as it is on Firefox or Chrome?

Fedora :: Sound Suddenly Not Working?

Mar 21, 2010

I have Fedora 12 and I am only running ALSA (not PulseAudio) for my sound.[URL}.. It was working fine until one day I noticed I'm getting no sound. There have been countless Fedora updates (prompted by the Fedora updater) so I'm suspecting some update horsed it up somewhere.

So when I go into System > Preferences > Sound it just hangs waiting for the sound system to respond. The sound card works fine because when I dual boot to Windows XP I do indeed get sound and I haven't changed anything since it worked before under Fedora. Everything is unmuted and turned up in my alsamixer settings.

Fedora Installation :: Force The 13 To Use Dmraid?

Sep 21, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with onboard ICH9R RAID support. I have successfully used this with Fedora 9 in a striped configuration.Upon moving to Fedora 13 (fresh/clean install from scratch), I've noticed that it is no longer using dmraid. It now appears to be using mdadm. Additionally, I need to select load special drivers (or something close to that) during the install to have it find my array - which I've never had to do before with F9. While the install appears to work ok and then subsequently run, my array is reporting differences .. presumably because it is trying to manage what mdadm is also trying to manage. More importantly, I can no longer take a full image and successfully restore it as I could with the dmraid F9 install. Is there anyway to force F13 to use the dmraid it successfully used previously?
