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.

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:

Slackware :: My System Shut Itself Down ?

Oct 29, 2009

My system just shut itself down as I was using it. I'd like to try to understand why.

First, I noticed there are 1 to 4 messages per second in my messages.1 through messages.4 files in /var/log going back to September 27. It probably started before then, but I don't have older logs.

There almost nothing else in the messages log but these messages, millions of them. They look like these:


Then just before shutdown, there are a few dozens of these:


And then right at the end, a switch to runlevel 0. I did not initiate that. Something else did. And finally a dbus-daemon segfault.


What other logs can I look at?

Hardware :: System Frequently Become Shut Down

Dec 27, 2010

I am using lenny on an Intel 5200 dual core machine with 2 GB RAM

The problem facing is sometimes The dialog box "The sustem will immediately shut down" is shown and goes to power off. I thinks it is connected with a hardware problem. But It is difficult to trace out what is the problem and in which part of the hardware it is.

The motherboard of this computer was complaint and it was replaced by the company (It is seen than it is the same motherboard with one IC replaced)

The problem is difficult to identify since it is not happening every time. When the service persons are here it is working fine. But when i works with the computer seriously, the problem arises - mostly in night. I have checked the power, voltage etc - everything fine. Also it is in linux, service persons don't pay attentions to solve the problem.

Is it the problem with RAM? It is a new RAM. Even if it is bad I can't replace it because it is working! and in windows (service persons check it with windows only)

General :: Completely Shut Out Of My System ?

Sep 3, 2009

I have an online server which I can not reach any more !


normally works just fine but now there is a timeout...


Status of csf:csf and lfd have been disabled, use 'csf -e' to enable Status of lfd:lfd is stopped. The only thing I have is a management-interface with a command prompt(luckily !) You can see that any firewall is disabled.

Still I can not reach my server. Not through webmin via the public address, not through the VPN on the private address ( So no webmin. I cannot reach my server via ssh. I cannot ping my server on the public IP-address from my client.

What else besides the firewall can restrict my access to my server ?

Ubuntu :: How To Properly Shut Down System Remotely With SSH

Apr 21, 2010

So I've got a backup server that has a daily cronjob to back up all my systems. My desktop PC is usually in sleep mode to save power. So my backup server has to wake up the desktop via wake-on-LAN to start the backup job. When the backup script is done, my backup server sends a shutdown command to the desktop to put it back in sleep mode.

The trouble is that SSH is timing out during the shutdown process and waits a ridiculous amount of time before giving up and allowing my backup server to move on to the next backup script. Here's the portion of my backup script for the desktop that does the shutdown stuff:

ssh user@host.lan '/usr/bin/shutdown -p +1'

Here's what cron sends me via e-mail:

Read from remote host host.lan: Connection timed out
real 164m46.280s
user 5m16.160s
sys 1m39.760s

Normally the entire backup job will only take about 5 minutes. But because of SSH timing out, it takes 164 minutes!

As a matter of detail, my backup server is running Ubuntu 9.10, and the desktop is Windows 7 x64 with Cygwin. The -p option for the shutdown command in Cygwin is for sleep mode.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Will Automatically Shut Down In 60 Seconds

Mar 31, 2010

If I click on the shutdown bottom (in my lower panel) I get an new window to choose if I really want to shut down or restart or suspend or hibernate. Under that alternatives there is an text that says: "[...] The system will automatically shut down in 60 seconds." Why is the text "60" not running down like a countdown? Can I set another (shorter) time for the automatic shutdown (10 seconds)? If so, where? Or shut I just make another bottom to shut down immediately?

I use (normally) OpenSuse/SUSE Linux
Release 11.1
Kernel Linux
Gnome 2.24.1

Debian :: Unplug USB Drive - Kernel Failure - System Will Not Shut Down

Jul 13, 2011

I have a flash drive that I regularly use on my laptop. If I unplug the flash drive without first unmounting it, I get a popup notification of a kernel failure (with diagnostics sent to kerneloops.org). Then, if I attempt to shut down the system via the console, it hangs on "The system is going down for halt/reboot NOW!" and doesn't actually shut down. Using Gnome's graphical System > Shut Down feature just logs me out and sends me to the login screen; the shutdown feature from there does nothing. I have to disconnect the power cord on the laptop in order to shut it down, and I don't like doing this.

System: 32-bit Debian Squeeze stable with kernel version 2.6.32-5-686, running Gnome 2.30.2, on an Acer Aspire 5570z.

I use Keepassx to store my passwords and keep the keyfile for my password database on the flash drive in question. I mention this just in case it helps determine what's causing the failure.

dmesg has quite a bit to say about this:

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 Networking :: Eth0 Intermittently Shut Down Couple Of Times Without Obvious Cause

Today my eth0 has intermittently shut down a couple of times without obvious cause from router or modem which appear normally lit. This happened a month or two ago soon after an update and them went away. I have unchecked ssh in the firewall settings as it is not needed but this has never been a problem. In the block of code there should be one attempt to graphically restart eth0.
