General :: Cpu Load Tops Out And Stays There?

Nov 20, 2010

I don't know where to begin with this problem, because I'm not really sure what is causing it. What is happening is that every now and then my cpu load jumps up to 90-100% and just stays there. Programs that typically take a 1-5% of the cpu load start taking up around 40-50% of the total load. Everything bogs down to the point that only a restart fixes it. Does anyone have any idea on what might be happening?To give a little background, I recently switched from Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome to a dual boot with Windows XP and Slackware 13.1 with XFCE, Slackware being the main boot. What I'm experiencing now never happened with Ubuntu either. I will say that it does seem to happen when I stream media (movies and music) online, but it doesn't just start immediately. The increase occurs at irregular times, so I can't pinpoint one thing that causes. Moreover, I can't find a process that might be causing it

Ubuntu Installation :: Flash Player - Video Streaming Seased - Wouldn't Load It Stays Searching Forever

Jan 20, 2011

I have been using this thread for a couple of days and just getting exposed to the vast world of ubuntu after succesfully partitoning the hard drive through a live cd. (a copy of linux for dummies book)So naturally after getting adjusted to the new os I started seeking for downloadable media and applications.Started with flashplayer last night and installed after watching some videos.But when I tried the same thing with vlc through the terminal command; sudo apt-get vlc

The video streaming seased because they wouldn't load it stays searching forever! Now ..... doesn't work.I am afraid that by tampering with the command it also affected the flash player file.This is an ethernet connection , 100 mb/s, netgear router.

Ubuntu :: Ubuntu Won't Load - Stays On Black Screen

Mar 15, 2010

I guess I messed around with my computer a little too much when I was bored. I tried installing compiz and emerald and my computer locked up. Rebooted and then it stays on a black screen. Rebooted and tried safe mode now. Removed emerald by command prompt to see if that would work and rebooted.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Resolution - Screen Looks Fuzzy In Certain Places Especially White Areas And Bars At The Tops And Bottoms Of Pages

May 19, 2011

I am having some issues with my screen resolution. I am not sure if it is a monitor or graphics card issue. I believe I have the ATI x300 card. I am gunning a dell dimension E510. My monitor is a MAG Innovision. The screen resolution keeps changing. I had this same issue with 11.3. Also, the screen looks fuzzy in certain places, especially white areas and bars at the tops and bottoms of pages. By fuzzy, I mean it will be a color that doesn't belong there and it will kind of look like static, in either a line, or a blob, or just the whole box. I recently had to disable all desktop effects because they would make the screen unusable.

General :: OS Shuts Down - Desktop Stays On / Can't Restart

Mar 25, 2011

I built a desktop a year or so ago, which runs like a dream. I have installed many OSes on it but the problem persists. If it tell the PC to restart it does everything right, shuts down but the PC remains on before it can restart. The OS shuts down and nothing is running, but the desktop stays on. If it helps, the PC shuts down fine. Just an annoying issue if I get updates in Windows/ Ubuntu etc.

General :: Ubuntu Places Now Longer Stays Showing

Jul 14, 2011

I have installed Unbuntu on recommendation from two users to get the USGS ISIS program to run on it when OTHER versions of Linux seems to have issuyes..not necessariliy LANY edition of Linux either ... imho after two full months of trying to get USGS and ASU to help give me honest geo-referenced and map-aligned data of all 10 bands each IR image has from Odyssey.. NasaView opens and gives individual bands..but...geo-referencing and map-alignment only ISIS can do.

I finally got it to work when two Ubuntu users got the main lib of ubuntu think certain old libraries are there when not. I think...worked anyhoo the ISIS commands worked...but now...the OUTPUT of the commands are INACCESSABILE! [URL] The above topic is where you'll read about the two month attempt and also see the Ubuntu rescue. But now the PLACE folders open for a VERY VERY short time about 2-3 seconds, if that, then shuts down again. From the Home terminal I got this list


As you may guess correctly everything between Music and Pictures in the listing is THE stuff produced by the output of the ISIS program made FOR Linux systems. Which One? Well Suse 10 and above not supported anymore and there are others. So I don't know what to do. I thought del meant delete in ANY language...guess not. What's up and how can I delete these files from the Home folder at least so it STAYS OPEN?

General :: Ghostview Window Stays In Fixed Location On Desktop?

Nov 2, 2010

I have an application originally built for Unix Solaris that opens a Ghostview window to display maps on the desktop. When we recompiled the application for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the Ghostview window opens and displays as requested, however I find the window cannot be successfully moved from the top left corner of the desktop. This has never been a problem on Unix, which allows the window to be moved to any location. In Linux, when I attempt to move the window to any other location on the desktop, it immediately pops back to the top left corner. I sometimes need to compare two different Ghostview maps, which is tough to do when they both insist on staying in the same location.

Also, all fans and everything in my computer but that num lock light turns off.

Ubuntu :: CPU Frequency Drops Down And Stays Down?

May 18, 2011

I'm not sure if this is an issue with Ubuntu or with the BIOS. Basically when I start up my computer, the ondemand governor seems to work just fine (ranging from 800 MHz to 2200 MHz). However after some indeterminate amount of time, it will get stuck at 800 MHz and I'm not able to figure out how to get it to scale properly again.

When I restart my computer, it acts normal again for some time before locking in at the lowest frequency.

It seems like it may be related to this post: [URL]. The last post in that thread mentioned that it could be related to the temperature, that may be the case in my situation. Even if the temperature is low after it locks to the lowest frequency, it won't increase the speed as needed

My question is, is there any way to override this and let the CPU continue to run at higher frequencies once it locks down to the lowest frequency? My computer doesn't feel like it's getting that hot (it's a laptop), and I'd like to not have to be able to restart it every time this happens.

Ubuntu :: Taskbar Stays On Screen?

Jul 4, 2011

When I run a program in fullscreen (a ..... video, for example), the taskbar stays on screen. To be abundantly clear, I mean the bar along the top with the power button and user name on it. It stays on the screen, but I can't interact with it; the mouse clicks "under" it as if it weren't there. I'm sure Compiz has something to do with it as it's as new problem, but I don't know how to fix it. I tried disabling Window Decoration, I tried setting it so it only applied to windows with !(state=fullscreen), but nothing seems to work.As a related problem, the menu button in Firefox (the one to the left of the tabs) just appeared out of nowhere. How do I make that go away? And the menu bar as a part of the taskbar doesn't work any more. Where's the option for that?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Instability - Screen Stays Up Momentarily

Feb 18, 2011

Just upgraded to 10.04 on Wed and noticed an instability. It's intermittent, so can not tell you what triggers it, but when it kicks off a commandline screen comes up, with a command pointing to some battery monitor software, and I have a desktop, so no battery and wonder why my machine has a battery monitoring software, when none should be installed. Anyway the screen stays up momentarily, then the system tries to go into something like a screen saver and I get all garbage on the screen, loose all ability to control and have to perform a hard reboot to recover from this.

Programming :: SSH Timeout - Stays Infinitely In The Background

Nov 24, 2008

I have a program that calls a program on a remote host via SSH in the background. In the command similar to the following:

But the problem is, this program stays infinitely in the background. Is there any method of implementation so that I can kill it? like after 10 seconds of trying?

I am trying to refrain from using TCPKeepAlive or sshd_config stuffs configurations. I was thinking of a fork() implementation where the parent sleeps for 10 seconds and then, if the child still haven responds to it, kill it.

Slackware :: RAID 5 Boot - LVM Stays Inactive

Nov 5, 2010

I'm somewhat stuck I fiddle with intel ss4200 NAS where I managed to install Slack 13.1 on some spare IDE HDD that was lying around (instead of that crappy 256 MB DOM). Anyway, everything works except one thing...

The setup is: 1x IDE HDD with Slackware on it. 4 x 1TB drives in RAID 5, which when mounted make 3 different logical drives. Everything works, /dev/md0 is created, pvc on top of it with 3 different drives. Well at least until I reboot. After reboot /dev/md0 is not automatically assembled and due to that - lvm stays inactive. Of course, I can make a script and put it in rc.local that will activate and mount what I want but I'm sure that there is one more elegant solution for that.

At the moment I need to issue: mdadm --assemble /dev/md0, vgchange -ay, mount -a and vgchange -an at shutdown. I checked parts concerning LVM in rc.S but I'm clueless. Kernel on the system is 2.6.36, mdadm - v2.6.9 and LVM version: 2.02.64

Debian :: Laptop Comes Out Of Suspend But Screen Stays Black?

Dec 14, 2010

I like to suspend my laptop when I close the lid. I have squeeze installed. When I open the laptop lid all lights indicated that it coming out of suspend but the monitor stays black. It is worse since I install the ati drivers for the card instead of the xorg. It did it with both but worse with nonfree drivers. I can get it to come out by ctrl alt f2 and the ctrl alt f7. However yesterday that did not work but that was the first time. My laptop is an acer 5251-1513 amd processor v120, and hd 4250 radeon

Debian Configuration :: When Shutdown Screen Always Stays On And Then It Hangs

Dec 12, 2015

I'm using Debian Sid xfce on my lenovo laptop. When i try to shutdown, the screen always stays on (the fans turn off). It says "reached target shutdown", then this happens: [URL] .... and then it hangs. I have to press the power button to shut it down. (I have the same problem with reboot). I had the same issues with Jessie.

Things i tried so far and didn't work:

Code: Select allshutdown -h now
shutdown -p now
systemctl poweroff
init 0

I edited /etc/default/grub and added the following options at "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT":

acpi=force, acpi=off*, acpi=noirq

*acpi=off: shutdown (not reboot) worked a few times but i didn't have wifi and power manager didn't seem to work

none of them worked..

I have no energy or wake up options at my BIOS.

I found out that i can normally reboot with the Alt + sysrq + REISUB key combination.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Stays Blank After Turning Off An On?

Aug 16, 2010

I just installed Mythbuntu 10.04 and have my Sony LCD TV connected via a DVI to HDMI cable. The issue I am encountering is that everything works fine until I turn off the TV and turn it back on later, because the screen stays blank and from what the TV tells me there is no signal. I have no idea what can cause this. I checked the TV settings in terms of power saving and turned it all off. I turned off the screen saver in Ubuntu, but still the same issue. My motherboard uses the ATI HD4200 onboard graphics engine

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Boot From CD. Just Stays On Black Screen

Nov 4, 2010

I have tried booting from 2 different Ubuntu CD's (10-04-01 and 10-10) and a Fedora CD.All 3 CD's do the same thing, in Ubuntu I just see the first screen (Keyboard/Battery on the bottom with the guy next to it) and then the screen goes black but the lights, that indicate there's a computer connected and transmitting info onto the screen, are still on.

I know the CD's aren't the problem because they work on 2 other computers I have.The CD drive isn't the problem because took it out of a working computer and that booted up fine with the CD's.I've restored BIOS to default settings.I've tried booting with 1 stick of ram at a time but still doesn't boot.I've left the computer on for 3 hours but nothing appeared on the screen and the lights never turned off. It was just a black screen, nothing on it, not even a blinking cursor.I know it's capable of booting up CD's because the Windows XP setup disc boots.
