Fedora :: LXDE Hangs Up Every 10-60 Minutes?

Aug 9, 2011

I use LXDE for about 2 days now, having several issues, but most important, its the only DE that hangs up itself every 10-60 minutes.

All i do is surf the web, watch a movie or listen music (mp3). I have no idea what could it cause, i dont get a error message.

Its acting like, do you know the old hughe black vynil long play discs? when they had a scratch, they were repeating it over and over and over and over and over and over... Well its kinda the same, just that it repeats either the music or the video (just the audio), mouse is frozen, and nothing but power shutdown works anymore.

After the 3 other DE's i was using, i kinda like LXDE the most, but that bug (?) is pretty annoying.

Fedora :: F13/12: Gnome Hangs During First 15-20 Minutes After Boot

Oct 25, 2010

After Gnome logon it may hangs in any moment (window scroll, app start, opening url)

If sound was playing in that moment it continuously repeats last sample (about 1 second length), but do not respond to mouse move/click or keyboard. If to let it stay in this state nothing change - sound sample still repeats and no response to input. I need to reboot it by reset button. Sometime when I press reset nothing happen then after couple of seconds computer turns off, after 1-2 sec on and then starts booting.

During first 15-20 minutes after booting it may hangs multiple times but after that it works without problems.

Tried do not logon 20 minutes after boot - do not help, it hangs anyway. Only helps logon and do nothing for awhile.

This behavior have started after F12 installation. F13 installation changed nothing, only F11 worked perfectly.

Slackware :: 13.1 Hangs On Every 15 Minutes?

Jun 2, 2010

I have a small Slackware gatway/web server/mail server. Few days ago I upgraded it to 13.1 and from this morning I have the following problem:

Neither in syslog, nor in messages. The inittab is set to runstate 3 ...

Ubuntu :: Maverick Hangs For 5 Minutes With Hdd Activity?

Dec 25, 2010

I have 10:10 x64 installed on a 1.5 TB drive connected to an Asus motherboard with with 4GB of DDR rRAM and on-board ATi HD4200 compliant graphics. Everything I have installed runs except that the system as a whole freezes from time to time for periods of around five minutes while the disk drive lamp shows that it is active. Until I find a solution I will be using my backup system.

I have tried recompiling kernels but they never generate an initrd image file and thus will not boot!

General :: `mencoder` Captures 10 Minutes Of Audio In Less Than 10 Minutes?

Mar 15, 2011

I'm using mencoder to capture audio from a Encore ENLTV-FM3 video capture device. I have recently noticed that, since one week ago, when the machine was forcibly restarted due to a power outage, all recordings are slightly pitched, they play back slower than they should.

I narrowed down the problem to the following command line:

$ time mencoder -really-quiet -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video1:chanlist=us-cable:audiorate=32000:alsa:adevice=hw.1:input=0:amode=1:normid=11 -endpos 00:10:00 -ovc copy -oac pcm -of rawaudio -o test-32000.wav tv://69
real 9m54.886s
user 0m5.536s
sys 0m1.740s
$ ls -l test-32000.wav
-rw-r--r--@ 1 martin martin 76800000 Mar 15 17:20 test-32000.wav

Somehow, mencode managed to gather precisely 10 minutes worth of raw audio in 9m 55s. That's not physically possible, unless the capture device's A/D converters are "overclocked". I can't think of any other explanation besides hardware failure. Can that be? Could it be that something got burnt during the power outage and now the capture device's internal clock went nuts?

Since the machine's restart, I've also noticed dmesg is flooded with entries like this:

CE: hpet increased min_delta_ns to XXX nsec

Which seem to indicate that the computer's high precision event timer is somehow out of sync. Does this have to do with the audio issue? Can it be that the audio converter's sample rate is linked to the HPET? I'm totally lost here. Has anyone bumped into something similar?

I need to adjust or delete the Polipo service but can't seem to get to any kind of a terminal used to be just hit ctl-alt-and and F key and it dropped to a term. Now that's not happening.

Fedora :: System Hangs On Start Up / What To Fix It?

Nov 20, 2010

I don't know what I did, but for some reason my fedora system hangs on the OS startup when I use my default kernel. I can still use my other kernel to startup the system though, so it's more of an inconvenience really, but any help fixing it would be appreciated.

The default kernel is Fedora ( when I start up using this kernel the system hangs(I think I using the right term here, but not sure) after these messages code...

Fedora Hardware :: Frequently The System Hangs Usually One App

Feb 18, 2010

I am running FC12 64bit. Frequently the system hangs usually one app - Thunderbird. If I have Firefox up also, it seems to run fine. The light indicating disk access is on almost constantly. Is there a way to find out what process is accessing which disk? I have 4 hds installed - 2 IDE and 2 SATA. I am having a similar problem trying to do a reboot - it does not reboot within 15 minutes. I need to hit the reset button.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Firefox Hangs System

Jul 20, 2010

everything else seems well with my FC13-x86-64 except firefox (3.6.4 and earlier versions too) VERY frequently hangs the whole system. only the mouse still working, keyboard not responding to ctrl-alt-del, ctrl-alt-function or any other key and even num-lock won't turn the led on. system is still remotely accessible through ssh so I can issue a reboot. same thing may have occurred with thunderbird but only once or twice and probably firefox was also running then. no problems so far with google chrome (but I have no flash plugin for that). FC5-x86-32 on my old PC has never had any of these problems.

Fedora Installation :: F15 Upgrade From DVD - System Hangs

May 26, 2011

I upgraded F14 to F15 using installation DVD. I have been upgrading since F11 with no problems. Upgrade went well, no issue. After the reboot, the system hangs after the last line systemd.

These are last lines from boot.log:
Starting LSB: start and stop xinetd...
Started LSB: Mount and unmount network filesystems..
Starting Permit User Sessions...
Starting xinetd: Started Permit User Sessions.
Starting Display Manager...
Started Display Manager. [OK]
Started LSB: start and stop xinetd.

Right now I am on system rescue CD, can mount partitions and read logs. I would like to avoid fresh installation if possible.

Fedora :: Booting F15 (64) Install DVD - System Hangs

Jun 3, 2011

As most of us know when you start the machine with the Install Disc in the drive you get a menu that reads:

Welcome To Fedora 15!
Install a new system or upgrade an existing system
Install system with basic video driver
Rescue installed system
Boot from local drive
Memory test

But when you try to boot the install DVD on and EFI based only get
Booting Fedora 15 in 3...2...1 ...and then the system hangs.

If any users are having trouble with Fedora Install can usually use the Install Media from a previous release! In this case, I used the Fedora 14 (64-Bit) disc to install Fedora 15 by simply replacing the 'F14' with a 'F15' in the URLs of the Install and Update repository dialog boxes.

General :: System Hangs Up Or Restarts?

May 10, 2011

I this problem where my laptop hangs up or suddenly restarts. Currently Iam using Fedora 15 but I had this problem when I was using fedora 13. I upgraded to 15 thinking that may be its been resolved in 15.

I have searched for possible solutions. my system software is up-to-date including the kernel which I took from the test repositeries..

I checked /var/log/messages for possible clues but I have not been able to figure it out. Below is the output of /var/log/messages files just before the laptop freezes or restarts.. so far the below output has been consistent with the event...

Fedora Installation :: System Hangs On M3A78-T Motherboard?

Mar 1, 2009

I got an Asus M3A78-T motherboard last year, along with a Phenom 9650 CPU and 2GB of RAM. I originally tried to install Sabayon, but it would occasionally hang while running. I decided to give Fedora another try (wasn't happy with FC4 a few years back) at the constant chiding of my friend.

My first try was with the x86_64 Fedora 10 ISO, using an IDE hard drive and CDROM. It would hang a little bit into something like 'copying system files, at the same place every time. Thinking it was a bad burn, bad iso, or something (checksum and image verification passed) I went ahead and got the DVD ISO. The DVD would always hang a little bit into "Formatting file system." At this point, I have tried EVERY other combination of hardware - swapped out ram, CPU, PS, bought SATA hard drive and DVDROm drive, unplugged the mouse, and even the case pigtails for USB and Firewire. It always hangs in the same place. Somewhere along the process, I took the motherboard back and exchanged it for a new one. Still fails, and in exactly the same place.

The system hang is a hard lockup. Mouse freezes, no keyboard activity (even LED status changes.) The drive activity LED will go out and the progress bar stops advancing.

I'm surprised I'm not seeing anyone else with this problem - I thought this board was a bit more prevalent, but I'm guessing not! What's my next step? I would create a bug report, but I don't know what subsystem is causing the hang. I suspect SATA drivers, but I'm not sure how to test that.

And one other clue - I get a scrambled video screen before it comes up to the first X install screen:

It only lasts for 5 seconds or so, then comes up okay.

Fedora :: System Hangs Due To Kernel Error On Shutdown

Feb 20, 2010

I have just made a clean installation of FC12. The only change I have made for now is to disable the NetworkManager and set a static ip address. My problem is that when I click "shutdown" it doesn't complete the shutdown and hangs due to some kind of kernel error. Then I have to use the power-switch to shut it down. It doesn't happen every time, but it happens often (every 3rd shutdown or so).

I get this error-messages on the screen:
Unmounting file systems:[OK]
Halting system...
--------[ cut here ]-----------
kernel BUG at kernel/time/clockevents.c:262!
invalid opcode: 0000 [#1] SMP
last sysfs file: /sys/mmodule/ip6_tables/refcnt

Just upgraded from FC11 to 13 a few days ago and came across a wierd problem with firefox. When downloading files thru firefox, Firefox starts consuming more and more memory/cpu cycles until the system hangs. This only happens when downloading thru firefox. Doesnt take too long either. Otherwise everything else works fine.

Fedora Installation :: Upgraded To FC11 From FC10 / System Freezes / Hangs

Jun 24, 2009

I upgraded from FC10 to FC11 yesterday.I had no problems using FC11 after I looked into the bootloader (not intuitive - Ha!).Tried to boot up this morning; and things seemed to work well until I tried to call up Firefox (added a few themes yesterday).The window pops open; but the computer freezes on the spot with an alarm (generic "beep", w/o the finishing "p").Tried it with Epiphany; and I get the same results with the exception of actually getting to the Home Page.Yum works for the most part - I reinstalled Firefox (no effect); but couldn't reinstall epiphany (keeps saying "there is no such package - did you mean 'epiphany'". No typos on my part - go figure). Doing Software/Package Updates (via System Menu) freezes the box as well.Did it with the system monitor on. It doesn't appear to be related to CPU Usage.

Had a FC10 liveUSB and used it for awhile (e.g. to check out the forums). After giving my ISP some grief about downloading speed, immediately received a note from their Abuse Department, saying that my machine had been infected with a virus and had been sending spam emails (post upgrade to FC11).

Fedora :: System Hangs On Reboot After Installing Kmod-nvidia In F12 / Sort It?

Having a problem with my system hanging after updating Fedora 12. Here are my system specs:

Gigabyte MA770-UD3 motherboard
AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core
6 gig Corsair DDR 800
1 x 160 gig SATA (OS)
1 x 500 gig SATA (data)

I have my system configured for dual boot with Windows 7. After installing F12, I can reboot with no problem. However, after I install the kmod-nvidia drivers, my system hangs on reboot. If I press any key on the keyboard, it will start to load, the freeze until I press a key again. I have tried both Fedora 12 x64 and i386 with the same results. Here are the steps that I took to install the kmod-nvidia drivers code...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

Solved, it was taking a long time on a 29gb /var/log folder
