General :: Skip Init Scripts - Boot Freezes At "setting System Clock"?

Aug 2, 2010

I have a debian system that's freezing in the boot sequence at "Setting system clock".Several sites I looked at recommended changing the init scripts to disallow hardware access to the clock. But, I can't boot! Is there a parameter I can pass to the kernel at boot so that it will skip init scripts?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.0 Boot Freezes At "Setting Up Hardware Clock"?

Dec 21, 2010

I've got an OpenSUSE 11.0 machine that's been working fine for quite some time. Today it wasn't responding at all to HTTP or SSH requests, so I power-cycled it. Now it's freezing up during boot at "Setting up hardware clock". I can't get past it in the boot-up, whether I use the default or the failsafe boot options.

I'm able to fire it up with a 11.3 install DVD and enter the rescue mode. From there, though, I'm not sure what to do next.

I can't use YAST -- can't boot that far. Most of the threads I've found on this topic via Google recommend doing something in YAST, so I thought I'd nip that in the bud.

I did check the BIOS clock, and it was about a month slow. I reset it manually -- hopefully I haven't screwed myself completely.

Any assistance would be hugely appreciated. This box is running as a server for a few websites, and the users would like them back.

AFAIK this is OpenSUSE 11.0, 32-bit, but I could be mistaken. It might be 64-bit. Where would I check that prior to attempting to boot?

I have a jar file which can be executed by going to the directory and then running 'java -jar start.jar'. Start.jar is the Solr example server.I would like to create a boot script in init.d for this, but have little experience with this.Is there a way to specify the 'current' directory in a boot script?

Ubuntu Installation :: Setting Network Clock Freezes On Installation?

Jun 8, 2010

I am a brand new ubuntu user, heard lots of good things about it so thought I would give it a go on my laptop. However, I have tried installations of Ubuntu 10.04 (notebook version) and Xubuntu. Yet on both attempts to install the OS it has stalled at the "Setting up the clock" dialogue box, it just sits at 0% and remains frozen (mouse still moves etc but nothing happens).

I really want to give Ubuntu / Xubuntu a go and my forum trawling has brought nothing to light so far.

Software :: Hardware Clock Differs From System Time After Setting

Feb 26, 2009

I'm setting the hardware clock on RHEL 5.1 system using /sbin/hwclock --systohc. After setting the clock I issue a date command followed by a /sbin/hwclock --show from within a script to get fast resolution and I see that the hardware clock precedes the system time on average by .5 seconds. I would think the clock should be identical after setting.

Fedora :: 11 - Boot Freezes At Setting Hostname ?

Apr 23, 2010

A few hours ago I was doing some heavy IO between two hdd's on my system and, from what I can tell, the screensaver tried to come on and X locked up. I ssh'd in from another computer and rebooted the system. But dring the boot process when Fedora starts starting service, after setting the hostname it outputs the previous output again and then freezes (see picture below).

I have never seen anything like this and don't even know where to begin to try and fix it. Any help is awesome especially since, as it stands, this computer is essentially useless.

I'm running an encrypted, updated Fedora 11 64bit.

General :: Setting Up A Multi Boot System With GRUB?

Aug 20, 2010

There are lots of OSs and Linux dists to install on your netbook, and I want to make it as easy as possible to install, remove and switch between them.

Just installing a dist and then another one after it will replace the GRUB boot screen every time, and some dists might override previous GRUB menus entirely.

On a previous machine I created a GRUB partition which chain-loads GRUB for each dist, but now I can't remember how I did it.

The hard drive is currently empty, since I started playing around with repartitioning. What is the easiest way to install GRUB to a partition? Links are welcome, but please no generic "install GRUB" guides because the ones I've found haven't been relevant to my particular situation (empty hard drive, multi boot environment, no CD/floppy)..

Fedora :: Can't Boot System Even Into Init Mode 3?

Jun 24, 2011

I upgraded to Fedora 15 using preupgrade after I failed to upgrade or install it clean through DVD. But, after the preupgrade process finished, I can't boot my system even into init mode 3. I am able to boot into the init mode 1 and can see that many of the packages have been upgraded to fc15. I tried to start the x server from init mode 1. My nVidia screen even popped up. But after that the screen went totally blanked.

Ubuntu :: Clock Wrong On Dual Boot System?

Apr 20, 2011

I've set-up dual boot on my laptop. Ubuntu installed first, then Windows 7 so it uses Grub2 to control the booting on start-up. I've noticed that my system clock goes out by an hour on both OS's, I change the clock to correct time & on reboot the time is usually (not always straight away) an hour behind. Has anyone else had this problem & know how to fix it?

Red Hat :: 5.3 Hang At INIT - Unable To Boot System Anymore

May 23, 2010

After a kernel update action, it seems that I'm unable to boot a system anymore. First off, after installing the kernel, and trying to shutdown to boot to the new kernel, the system replied with INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel. Kernel update was performed from to the following versions 2.6.18-128.el5.img -> 2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.img . The system is a VMWare virtual machine. When trying to reboot, the system passes GRUB, starts initializing and after loading the dm it stops for a few seconds at the message Waiting for new devices, show the following message:

Setting up new root fs no fstab.sys, mounting internal defaults. After this and a few other messages, it displays : INIT: version 2.85 booting INIT - No more processes left in this runlevel INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast : disabled for 5 minutes And then it just hangs. This is the output of my inittab:


The system boots into failsafe, but still shows the errors mentioned.

General :: Set Windows To Use System Clock As UTC?

Jan 28, 2011

While dual-booting Windows and Linux, Linux sets the system time to UTC, so Windows thinks it's midnight near mid-morning. Is there any other way to tell Windows to use UTC? I've seen the registry tweak proposed here and other places. This does not work on my computer (Windows 7 32-bit).For reference, the registry entry is this:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlTimeZoneInformation]"RealTimeIsUniversal"=dword:00000001

Ubuntu :: 11.04 System Freezes During Boot

Sep 1, 2011

After a hardware freeze, my system boots directly into the Ubuntu screen with 5 dots and hangs. Booting into recovery mode loads the tools menu then freezes before I select anything. The system still boots and runs windows 7 from the same hard disk just fine. I've booted a live cd and run file system check on my ext4 partition and it says it's clean. I can mount the volumes and read the data, just can't get the os to boot.Any suggestions before I backup and reformat?

General :: System Clock Keeps Drifting Forward?

Sep 8, 2010

the time on system clock given with 'date' command keeps moving forward about 1 minute for every hour of realtime. The box is up all the time so this is not an issue with motherboard battery. An equivalent box with the same hardwre/OS and applications doesn't have the same level of drift. I'm not sure what else this could be.Both boxes are Centos 5.2 64-bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Freezes On Boot Up In 10.04?

Aug 27, 2010

Im running desktop dual boot system with two hard drives, one with Windows XP and the other with Ubuntu. Ive had no problems with this until now when I upgraded from Hardy to Lucid. Now I have problems with the system freezing on boot up.

Sometimes it will boot just fine, and at other times it will freeze before the login screen appears. When it does freeze, there are flashing lights on the keyboard and the floppy disk light (yes, its an old computer) is lit constantly. The only thing I can do is switch the computer off and hope it will boot up properly the next time.

When I did the upgrade there were a couple of files where the program asked if I wanted to keep the custom file or overwrite it with the maintainers file and I chose to keep the custom one. I THINK one of them might have been GRUB, but Im not sure.

Has anyone had a similar experience and were you able to cure it? I have seen a thread where people have had the system freeze on them, but Im not sure its QUITE the same thing.

Ive also done a clean install with Lucid on my laptop and have had no problems. The laptop is only running Ubuntu.

Im also wondering if reinstalling Grub on my desktop would solve the problem.

a. If so, would it still show both operating systems?

b. How do you do it?

General :: Set System Clock In Unix To Millisecond Precision?

Generally you can set system clock using [URL]. However, it doesn't supply millisecond precision (it does have nanoseconds, but this isn't working on my system). Is there another way to set system clock, or will I need to write a C program to do it?

Ubuntu :: System Freezes At Purple Screen On Boot

Jul 17, 2011

Every once in a while when I turn on my computer it freezes on the purple screen after the screen where you choose the operating system. When this happens the keyboard doesn't work and I have to hold the power button. Also I think this might be connected to the problem I had when I was running ubuntu from the live cd, which was freezing after choosing the option of "trying" the OS before installing. I'm using an HP Dv7-3112sa and am running the default 64bit ubuntu from the website.

Ubuntu :: Wont Boot - "no Init Found. Try Passing Init=bootarg"

Jan 31, 2011

While I was using my computer a few days ago, the terminal stopped working properly, so I tried to reboot, and when it started up again it wouldn't boot and said "no init found. try passing init=bootarg"

This has happened twice before, so I really need to figure out what keeps happening, otherwise I can't continue to use linux. i reinstalled both times before. i think that this is caused by a process that prevents me from using the hard drive, because when I try to check the disk in the terminal or in gparted, it says Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1. Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?

Also, in the disk utility, in the lower right corner of the filesystem it has a spinning "loading wheel".(i'm not sure if that means anything)

I am using ubuntu 10.10, but am not sure what kernel I am using, but i tried a few different kernel options(there's three of them at start up). safe mode does not work either.

General :: Gentoo - INIT Process Necessary For An Ultralight System Installation?

Jul 30, 2011

I am working on a light version of linux for no particular reason other than to see how small I could make it. I was wondering if INIT was necessary, or if I could perform all of the INIT-related tasks (fsck, unmounting, etc) by hand/bash scripts?

I do not need multi-user functionality (Or much of anything for that matter). I started off with a Gentoo base 2.0.2 Install with kernel 2.6.38.

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnome Init Freezes In 9.10 On New Intel DH55TC

Jan 13, 2010

I just purchased a new Intel DH55TC motherboard, a Core i5-661 processor, a WD Caviar Green 640GB drive, and a Linksys WMP110 card. I was able to successfully install 9.10, but every time it loads to the desktop it freezes. It seems like it may be an ACPI problem with the built-in H55 graphics card on the CPU. I hit 'e' at the grub prompt, and added 'noacpi' to the end of both the kernel (or linux?) line and the initrd line. WHen I did that, I was able to get to a point that it was fully loaded and I could move the mouse around, but as soon as I opened a menu, like 'Applications', the desktop froze again.

(NOTE: I have today's daily 10.04 on a USB, and will try that next as a live disk)
