Fedora :: Get The Abrt Flashing Light At The Top Of The Screen?
Jan 27, 2010
Every time I login I get the abrt flashing light at the top of the screen, but nothing comes up. When I try to run it manually from Applications->System Tools->Automatic Bug Reporting Tool I get a popup with:
Error while loading the dumplist. org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)Is anybody else seeing this? If so, any idea as to what's going on? How to fix it?
I could just dump abrt since it's hardly a necessity, but I'm inclined not to as I think it's a good idea which could potentially be of great benefit to us all.
Despite being warned from a friend of mine who works for Intel that the new version of Ubuntu 11.04 sucked? I upgraded from 10.10 which worked perfectly fine and did everything that I wanted it to except work with my COBY MP3 player which is what I hoped 11.04 would do. It all worked great until I rebooted. I previously had the main screen on the left where all of the menus are and the right screen was the 2nd monitor.
Once it rebooted it let me login and loaded the desktop but the main screen is now on the right with that stupid application bar going up the side, all of my folders, etc. are all there but NOTHING is clickable, even the icons up in the right corner where you logout, etc. will not do anything other than highlight that you have clicked on them, the hard drive light flickers for a few moments then nothing.
Also the left hand screen is completely blank unless I move the mouse cursor through it. If I just leave the computer sitting there eventually the screens go dark and the monitor lights start flashing like it is supposed to but if I wiggle the mouse the screens come back on and the mouse is there but there is no login prompt to let me log back in. Pardon my French but this OS is a piece of <bleep> and sucks just like I was told.
I just installed Fedora 10 on my laptop (HP dv2500 series). I have it dual booting between Fedora and Vista. The laptop has one of those wireless on/off switches and next it the LED: blue - wireless active, amber - wireless inactive. It works fine in Vista but whenever I'm using Fedora it flashes between blue and amber quite fast, stopping on blue for maybe 4 seconds, then flashes again. I am on a constant connection to the network though, no sign of connection loss.
I have an Epson SX100 multifunction printer which is a year old but rarely been used. The on/off light keeps flashing but I can't get anything else to function. The cartridges move into place but if I press any of the buttons nothing else moves - can't print, scan or photocopy - no other lights showing. Have to pull out the cord to turn it off.
From previous Epson printers I've had I know there are ways to override cartridge empty lights etc and wonder whether someone knows how to re-set this printer. Have had an online chat with Epson but as soon as they know it is just out of guarantee they point you in the direction of the repair shop and it is just not worth paying for a repair as it would cost more than the printer.
When I try to start Fedora 12 all I get is a flashing cursor on thep LHS of my screen.This is new. Fedora 12 workd fine up until yesterday.treat me as a novice and if you start using technical terms I will just be lost
so I installed fedora 12 last night, everything was fine. Installed some things, moved music over, etc. (Dual booting with windows vista btw) So I install my graphics card driver, (ATI Radeon HD 3200) and I reboot. When I open the bootloader (I think thats what it is), It starts to boot, then just has a black screen with the flashing underscore. I can type and stuff but nothing happens.
I recently followed instructions to enable the nvidia driver. run the following commands:
then rebooted, a tricoloured loading bar appeared and finished, then all i got was a blank screen with flashing cursor. I don't get a prompt to login and can't access my account. I am dual booting on this machine with ubuntu, is there anyway i can restore my fedora partition and enable my nvidia graphics
I have re-installed Fedora 3 times, each time, after a little while of use, when I am botting it up, it loads up, and before the login screen appears, the screen just goes black, and I end up with just a black screen and a white line in the top left corner flashing, thus resulting in me not being able to log in. The exact same has happened a number of time
Could it be something I had installed? Also, whilst using it, on the third install, a few times a message appeared telling me there was a kernel error, could this be linked to the problem? I was running Fedora in GNOME, but I had KDE installed too.
After succesfully installing Ubuntu 10.4 x32 and rebooting pc hangs on black screen with a flashing white dot in the top left corner of my screen, i've tried installing it twice with the same results.
my setup is: Asus p5q-e, 4 gig of corsair dual ram, ati 4850 graphics, onboard audio. ahci mode win 7 installed on intel ssd, and xp on a samsung 320 gb sata 2, i had this configuration running fine for 2 months without boot loaders, on pc start up i choose from which hdd to boot from.
i installed ubuntu on the samsung drive where it was recognised fine, wiped it all and installed automatically.
pls let me know if there is anything i missed, and advice if possible in what to do.
when ever i try to install updates i get shown an error & the updates stop the error i get says "librpmio.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates) librpm.so.0 is needed by package abrt-1.0.3-1.fc12.i686 (updates)"
So last night suddenly my computer started running really slow. Like it would take a couple of minutes for a window to open. I tried to start System Monitor to see what was going on, but couldn't get it to launch. At first I thought something had grabbed the CPU, but eventually I discovered that something was writing a massive amount to the hard disk. The intensive disk activity continued for about 20 minutes as I watched nervously. Just as the disk activity suddenly stopped ABRT popped up a message that disappeared to fast to read fully, but it said something about a file that was too large.
This morning I discovered that about 9 GB of my hard disk had been used up. Using "find -size +1G" I found an 8.6 GB file in /var/spool/abrt /ccpp-1291706342-2244/ called "coredump."I don't know what a coredump is or how to look inside the file to see what might have caused its creation. But I do know that ABRT has not said a word about the incident.
Whenever I log into Fedora, an icon (a triangle with an exclamation mark) pops up in the main panel . When I move the mouse over it, the following is displayed. ABRT service not running. I restarted the service from the service configuration window but there was no difference. How do I configure it to run alway
First of all, I was unsure whether this should go in General Support or in Installation. The problem is occurring on my first boot of a freshly installed F12 system, but the immediate problem seems to be more concerned with Automatic Bug Reporting Tool and/or Bugzilla plugin.
That more immediate problem is: when I run the tool to report a crash, it complains that the Bugzilla Plugin is not properly configured. So I look at Edit->Plugins->Bugzilla just as it suggests, and I see a bugzilla URL that looks right, and blank Login and Password.
However, since I just did the F12 installation, which presumably is designed for any user, not a developer or member of the F12 project, there is no reason to assume that I even HAVE a login. So this is the first question: what Login and Password are they expecting here? Is there a special Login for the ABRT?
was trying to get rid of the ubuntu menu and try to change how the desktop looks. It's hard to explain but it was first the desktop you get when you first start up ubuntu on NetbookThen I somehow turned in into a desktop esque menu. With all the icons and stuff. Today my battery accidentally fell out as I moved it around and when I restarted my computer all went fine until the screen started flashing. On the upper right hand corner, was a transparent square with 2 arrows when it flashes. It still showed that I connected to my wireless and etc.
I have fedora 12 32 bits installed on a Macbook pro (intel core duo) I did "yum update" this morning, I have restarted the system and got the following message:Starting abrt daemon: abrtd: Failed to start: got sig 2 FAILEDI have browsed in the web but I cannot find useful information. Then I typed:$rpm -qa | grep abrt
I had a major foul-up a couple of days ago, and I now have thousands of bug reports in the abrt applet. I'm trying to delete them individually, but it's taking forever. Is there a way to mass delete these reports to clean things up? I looked at abrt-cli and it has a --delete command, but only does them one at a time, too.
Question about the bug reporting system that I think is called ABRT Struggling with F15 and want to file a bug report, but the backtrace thingy says I should remove sensitive data first. Obviously a good idea, but the report is full of what to a non-programmer looks like gibberish - things like what I guess are hexadecimal numbers or memory addresses, none of which I understand. Can any of that incomprehensible stuff contain sensitive data, like encryption keys or anything someone would need to crack a machine? If I remove all of that then the bug report will be pretty sparse.
(Same question applies to SMOLT - machine profie report - as well) Or is "sensitive" just about the human readable data in the reports?
I tried to enable Compiz on my netbook, so I installed ccsm. Then when I enabled visual effects and restarted, my netbooks monitor starts flashing when I boot up. So I restarted in low graphics mode, uninstalled ccsm, and it's still flashing. Is there anything else I need to remove to get my netbooks monitor back to normal?b
Recently, whenever I restart my computer, I am automatically logged in and a rapid sequence of flashes repeats itself over and over. First a white screeen appears. Then my desktop background appears, dimmed and overlaid with the netbook-launcher's up and down arrows in the upper lefthand corner. Then my desktop background appears in full color, with my panel above it but no launcher. Rinse wash repeat. I assume it has something to do with Compiz. When escape to a tty and type "compiz --display :0--replace &" the loop ends and everything works. Any ideas how to avoid having to do this every time I restart
I've just downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 (amd64) and every time I boot i get a flashing screen. I didn't have any problems at all with the LiveCD. The graphics card and my wireless adapter worked out of the box. But after the install it won't work. I can choose the OS in GRUB and then there's a purple screen. After that the screen starts flashing and I can hear the login sound.
I have tried using "nomodeset" but that didn't work either. There is no flashing, just a purple screen all the time. But it was possible to enter tty. I also tried booting the Recovery Mode but it just loads and then a pink flashing screen appears.
im using rhel 5 and my x screen is flashing nothing is displaying in itand im getting only single user modei checked /var/log/messages got the error'gdm_slave_xioerror_handler:Fatal X error-Restarting :0 '. i tried startx manually but it didnt worked.
Ok, i'm sure this is really basic and it's probably been posted before but I have searched and can't find anything.
Long time linux user, first time with centOS
I am building a basic firewall system with ssh acces only, I only occasionally need gui/gnome access so I have sent my init level to init 3 in /etc/inittab.
My problem is during startup the screen wants to run the gui startup and for some reason the driver isn't quite right so it flashes the screen every time it starts a process and says [OK] because of this I miss 90% of the startup information.
I have already disabled the splash screen in /boot/grub/grub.conf and that did disable the grub splash screen but how can I disable the "centOS" spash stuff? I only want txt at startup, I don't want the system to do anything graphical until I type startx.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 last night, it worked fine, installed my graphics drivers, worked fine, and then I ran "sudo apt-get update" and then "sudo apt-get upgrade". There was about 240MB of packages to be downloaded, and since I was going to be on for a while, I did. I didn't restart after it finished, I just turned off my computer and went to bed.
Well now, when I turn on my computer and boot to Ubuntu, after the boot screen, my monitors stay on, but show a blank screen. There is no boot up sound, the HDD light is solid on, and I can't access terminal through Alt + Ctrl + F1.
I'm using debian for the first time and I recently downloaded the Debian Lenny 201 Live CD to test it on my old computer (I'm planning to use Debian 5.0.4). It has a Pentium III (550 MHz) processor, 192 MB RAM, 8 MB graphics memory, 20 GB HDD with a monitor supporting 1024x768 resolution. The problem is, after the booting is complete a blank flashing screen appears with a cross-shaped cursor in the middle. I continues and nothing happens. I tried with solutions like editing the entries with 'live xdriver=fbdev', 'live xdriver=none', and 'live vga=771'.
