Fedora Installation :: F12 64 Bit - Starts The Boot Process And Then It Hangs

Dec 28, 2009

I'm attempting to install F12 64 bit. I currently have F10 running on this system. I'd like to do a clean install. I'm using the DVD. I boot the computer with the DVD in. I choose the first option (Install or upgrade). It starts the boot process and then it hangs. [URL]

After asking at #Fedora I was given the advice to boot with `intel_iommu=off`. That gets me slightly further in the process. It gets to the point where anaconda is starting. Then all heck breaks loose. It appears the monitor loses the signal from the computer (power light turns red just like if the computer was off). The caps lock and the scroll lock lights on the keyboard blink about once a second. The DVD drive continues to spin for about a minute and then stops. Since I have no display, I have no idea what's going on.

Ubuntu :: Machine Will Come To A Complete Stop About Half Way Into The Boot Process

Aug 11, 2010

I'm having small boot issue with my present Linux box, which is presently running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. When booting from a Live CD, Ubuntu 9.xx+ or any other linux variant I have, the machine will come to a complete stop about half way into the boot process. I think this may have something to do with the WiFi card that I have installed. Are there any suggestions that could help me remedy this problem short of removing the card itself?

Ubuntu :: Process (including Boot, Shutdown, Download, Open Programs, Etc) Is Freeze Until Move The Mouse Or Hit Any Button?

Nov 26, 2010

1) Any process (including boot, shutdown, download, open programs, etc) is freeze (don't have any progress) until I move the mouse or hit any button, so for install and use my ubuntu I have to keep moving my mouse and as you imagine is VERY TIRED.2) I get some general freeze on random times, neither the mouse, keyboard or process move, I notice that if I unplug power it unfreze, and I can work for some time.This 2 problems annoy me a lot, and I suspect is a problem related to my Netbook Model, I read about someone that has the same problem but no solution there.

This is what I did:I Try Ubuntu loading from my USB memory (1GB), run very good but with the 2 problems, but I thought it can be resolved installing.I installed along side with W7, couldn't boot Ubuntu, so I configured GRUB2 and it could enter now, but if I don't press **** after selecting Ubuntu it give me the BusyBox, and then the same 2 problems.I get rid of my W7 and did a Full Install on my 160GB HDD, hoping it can work fine, but no.I install all updates and no effect on that.

May i choose it from the very beginning ?

Programming :: Application Process Starts Multiple Times?

Jul 15, 2011

I'm porting C++ application from ARM to MIPS platform. It works now, but I see some strange timing problems. I've seen now that My app process is called multiply time. Here is "top" output:

Mem: 24592K used, 102084K free, 0K shrd, 0K buff, 16864K cached
CPU: 0% usr 99% sys 0% nice 0% idle 0% io 0% irq 0% softirq
Load average: 4.02 2.17 0.95
1888 1875 admin R 12096 10% 98% ./my_app.exe

I don't see something like this when I compile it for x86, nor ARM.On MIPS I use uClibc instead of glibc.

Ubuntu :: Get MySQL Daemon To Start When The Machine Starts Up?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm trying to get mySQL Daemon to start when the machine starts up (and it requires root privileges to run). The command to startup would be

sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start however that would prompt for a password, and that would not be very well possible now would it? Now, if i try to start it up without being root, it will not start. So this is my problem, maybe someone out there would know a bit more about this than me.

Networking :: Access Programs From Machine In The NAT Using Ssh?

I am behind NAT using private IPs like 172.x.x.x in my lab. I need to access programs from other machines which are also behind NAT. What is the syntax of ssh command that i can run?

General :: Programs Run At Boot Time: Where Are They Hidden

Apr 15, 2011

I am struggling to understand where PackageKit is launched from at boot time (fedora FC13), and I'm starting to suspect that - since my previous experiences with much older Linux distros - in modern systems daemons/services/programs are launched at boot time from many other different points. In my case, I can't find an origin point for this program in /etc/rc5.d Where can I find a list of places to look into?

General :: Installing Programs For Use With Live Boot?

Apr 16, 2010

[URL] I'm currently running simplyMEPIS 8.0.15 (rel 32). It's booting automatically off a USB. The way I have it configured right now, it just loads right up without a root menu or boot-options, just basically going straight to "hey, u ROOT or DEMO?" I'm not sure if there's a way to get back to the bash and load directly to RAM at this point.

In another thread I was looking into burning backups from k3b as I run live because my DVD-player isn't behaving right now under windows... 'still working on that I want to get a backup done before I do a hard install. It's my goal to get either Kismet, wireshark, or Airsnort/crack/peek running on this machine so I can start gathering packets and doing analysis. Is that a way that (atleast for the timebeing until I can work out backups) that I can install any of these programs directly to the USB (by editing the ISO somehow?), so that they'll be available when I liveboot?

Ubuntu Installation :: Programs With No Internet On Machine

Jan 17, 2010

Ive successfully set up Ubuntu on a desktop computer I got for free (because it�s RAM was half destroyed by a virus and the owner got a new one). I don�t have this computer connected to the internet but I can get the internet on my laptop�s built in wifi (from some random neighbour who has an unsecure WLAN). So, to install programs on Ubuntu I have to download the .deb or .ter.gz files from the laptop (winXP), copy them to a USB drive, transfer them to the Linux machine and install. Problem is, none have worked so far:

General :: When Was Script Last Executed?

Jan 18, 2011

I have a script scheduled to run with Crontab at 5am each weekday.The script is all good and executes manually (is just a simple stop/start of a service)I have reason to believe that it is not executing according to schedule.I am looking to see when a script was last executed.The script is executing accordingly (long story short, I forgot it was Tuesday). I would still like to know how to check a last-execution time.

General :: Remove Bootchart From The Boot Process?

Feb 8, 2010

I have OpenSUSE 11.2. I removed bootchart and forgot to run mkinitrd. Now, right at the start of the boot process, I get boot/ line 17: 462 Terminated stopinitrd 5

I Can't find any anywhere. Earlier I got an error message about non existing /sbin/bootchartd, but I just copied /bin/cat to /sbin/bootchartd using a GParted boot disk. I tried to use chroot with an OpenSUSE boot disk, but mkinitrd can't find the root device, which is there actually (/dev/sda5). How can I make my system boot again? now I managed to re-install the bootchart rpm, using OpenSUSE boot disk and chmod. The system starts again. But that annoying bootchart is still there. I will not try again to remove it. First I will try to figure out, how to disable it during the boot process.

I'm using CentOS 5.3. After booting up, where can I find the log file that contains if all services where successfully loaded or not? For example when computer boots you get a list of start services and they can be OK or FAILED. Is there a log file where this information is kept? I had a look in the following directory /var/log/ but not sure which one will contain the informaiton that I need.

General :: Boot Up Process- The Read Only Rootfs Into VFS?

Mar 15, 2011

I've been reading various tutorials of the boot process but still am not clear. I don't care about grub stage 1 and 1.5 at the starting point of when the root filesystem is loaded into VFS(Virtualfilesystem), who is loading it, and from that point on. 1) Does grub load the root filesystem(read only) into VFS?2) Does the kernel load the root filesystem(read only) into VFS?3) Does INIT load the root filesystem(read only) into VFS?after this is concluded....Does INIT or the Kernel create the real root filesystem(rw)...right before the pivot.root

General :: Slow Down The Kernel Boot Process?

Oct 14, 2010

I'm trying to upgrad from kernel to and I'm having problems.The boot finished with that old gem "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempting to kill init !"I suspect that it's something to do with my PATA IDE driver because there have been kernel changes in this area.My problem is all the boot messages scroll off the top of the screen before I can read them and it's no use saying look at dmesg or /var/log/messages because the root fs isn't there - another reason why I think it's to do with the drivers.So my question is, is there some way I can slow down the boot process so that I have a chance of reading the messages ?

General :: Script Is Not Being Executed During Shutdown?

Feb 5, 2011

why a script is not being executed during shutdown. I have a script in 'init.d' that works properly from command line. It also works fine at boot. My problem is that it does not execute at all on shutdown. I am using all the standard rc.d stuff for the script. Here are my LSB tags:


# Provides: setwebpage
# Required-Start: $network httpd


When I check the rc?.d directories, the appropriate links are there with the proper NN. This script has to FTP a couple of files to a remote server so the network is required and the script should be run very early in the shutdown process. However, the first thing the script does is send a message via 'logger' indicating it is executing with the 'start' or 'stop' parameter. The 'stop' message never shows up in the log thus I have to conclude that it simply is never executed.
