General :: Tool To Show In Logs When System Panicked Restarted Unscheduled?

Jan 5, 2011

I have it at lot that when a system crashes fatally and restarts (due to a power outage, kernel panic, tripping over a cord or something), there is no mention of it in the log. It just shows that the system was started. Is there a tool that will show this in the log? With a message like "system was not shut down properly or had a fatal crash / kernel panic" when restarting? It is pretty easy to do, just have a lock file somewhere that is removed when the system shuts down gracefully and that is left when it is not. And mechanism that checks this when starting up. It would also be possible to tell when the crash occured, as you can update the lock file from time to time and when the systems dies, it cannot anymore.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Update, Restarted, And Now System's In A Loop?

Feb 8, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 in a dual boot alongside Windows vista on an HP DV6000 laptop.It's been running smoothly for months. No problems.Today, I was in Ubuntu, and the Update Manager asked me to update (ok) and then said it needed to restart. I hit the restart now button and the system started to shut down, but never fully shut down. It's in a kind of loop, trying to start up, but not going all the way, and then shuts down again.I did a hard reboot but still nothing - the same loop. I don't even see my HP startup screen, nor can I access the BIOS, much less Grub.I put in the Ubuntu startup CD and it tries to read from that at startup, but then fails and returns to the same loop.

Ubuntu Security :: Router Logs Show Outgoing Telnet Connection

I have my router configured so that it drops outgoing telnet connections (and other protocols I don't use). It's a 2wire gateway. is the internal IP of my ubuntu box.I'm trying to figure out what normal network traffic looks like and whether I should be worried by this log entry. At the time this happened I was testing out TOR (just navigating to a few sites (dell, ubuntu forums, etc.) nothing all that interesting.)

Fedora Networking :: Use Wireless-Assistant 0.5.7 There's No Connection - AP Logs Show Numerous Connections And Disconnections

Jun 20, 2009

I'm trying to get wireless working in F10. Using pci wireless card with Atheros chipset. To be sure, I tested this hardware with a PCLinuxOS Live CD. Connects to AP perfectly.

Hardware drivers seem all OK in F10, and ifconfig shows wlan0 as expected. When I use the Wireless-Assistant 0.5.7 there's no connection.

Actually, the AP logs show numerous connections and disconnections.

Preferring CLI, I'm using a drop-dead simple wpa_supplicant.conf as follows :

Ubuntu :: Unscheduled Auto Reboot Failed Now No Booting

Nov 30, 2010

As I walked in my office this morning, before getting withing 5 feet of my computer, the computer started an unscheduled auto reboot but failed. After hard reset, unplugging, etc., it will still not boot off of primary system. Used Live disk of previous Ubuntu to gain access to system. Found bug#407862 regarding 'rsyslogd was HUPed' but don't know what that has to do with this specific problem. [URL]. The initial error message on screen was something like "no system disk. Insert system disk and press enter", as if I had a non-bootable CDROM inserted, but there was nothing like that.

/var/log/syslog says this:
Nov 30 07:59:05 my-computer-name rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="4.2.0" x-pid="908" x-info= URL] rsyslogd was HUPed, type 'lightweight'.
Nov 30 07:59:05 my-computer-name anacron[5755]: Job `cron.daily' terminated
Nov 30 07:59:05 my-computer-name anacron[5755]: Normal exit (1 job run)
Nov 30 08:00:01 my-computer-name CRON[6028]: (www-data) CMD (test -x /usr/bin/php && /usr/bin/php -q /usr/share/horde3/scripts/alarms.php > /dev/null 2>&1)

Hundreds of previous syslog entries contain the following line:
Nov 30 08:00:01 my-computer-name CRON[6028]: (www-data) CMD (test -x /usr/bin/php && /usr/bin/php -q /usr/share/horde3/scripts/alarms.php > /dev/null 2>&1)

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Get Theme Gnome 3 Show Up To Be Usable In Tweak Tool

Jun 23, 2011

I have been running Gnome 3 for a few days now and really like it, but need to tweak it to my liking, basically to an overall darker theme. Something similar to this is what I am shooting for: I have figured out how to do the shell themes (top bar, dock, etc) but I am having problems with the window manager themes (window title bars, window backgrounds, etc). Using the Gnome-Tweak_Tool, I can apply the pre-installed ones, but I am at a loss as to how I add new ones. I have tried adding themes to ~/.themes, and /usr/share/gnome-shell/themes, but I am unable to get them to show up to be usable in the tweak tool. I am comfortable using the command line and/or editing configuration files if that is the only way.

General :: Lost All Running Programs On A Server (inside *screen) When Client Restarted?

Apr 21, 2011

I sshed to a server a week ago, then ran *screen* and created a few windows in my screen session. I then ran a few programs on those screens. All the programs were running in the background (I run them with &). I did not close or detach from the screen sessions. So I was still connected to those screen sessions from my client machine.

Then, this morning I find my client machine rebooted. When I do screen -ls I find there are no screens available to reattach to. But that is not the worst part. The strange thing is that all my processes (which were running on the server) have disappeared as well, even though they were running in the background. I thought 1) using screen I will be able to re-attach to old screens when my client restarts, 2) If I have sshed to a server and have run programs in the background, restarting the client should not stop those programs (even if I had not used screen).

Fedora :: System Shutdown Only Logs Out

Feb 14, 2011

I currently run kernel (sort of). When I select from the Gnome menu System -> Shutdown and select Shutdown from the dialog, my system only logs out, presenting me with the greeting screen. While this is a minor problem and I rarely shutdown my machine, it is mildly disconcerting.I have dropped back to and that shutdowns properly using this method. (Also, works properly). I can imagine that it might close some security issue in which an unauthorized user is able to halt the entire machine. Especially if this is something that will continue in future releases of the kernel.

Debian :: System Logs Itself Out While Unattended / Stop It To Do So?

Jul 23, 2011

Well it turns out my system has logged out more then once on its own. I had the system updated and upgraded from 7-3-11 and it did this about once a week. On 7-18-11 I did a full update and upgrade and it logged out a few times in a couple of hours. It does it while I am away and the system is in screen saver mode. I used my partition clone and restored the system back to 7-3-11. Has any one else ever had such an issue?

Ubuntu Servers :: Send System Logs To Another User?

We have a backup program that works with HP's ultrium tapes that whenever it's failing it's sending an error to the root's system logs. Now if I run mutt as root I can see the system logs and it's very easy to pinpoint any backup error messages.
Is there any way to copy all these system messages to another user as well so that someone with no root access could run mutt as well and check for these logs daily?
