Installation :: Get The Error Message From The Thread Title:"render Error Detected" After The Grub-menu?
Mar 30, 2010
i got a dual-boot. both are debian. yesterday i upgraded one of them to debian-squeeze and to grub2.that installations boots just fine.but for the second i get the error message from the thread title:"render error detected"after the grub-menu.if i choose single user mode it boots and hangs waiting for the root file system.i found this results at google (which i am not allowed to post yet) but i don't understand them.
I'm using Fedora 12, also to new to Linux, recently while booting Fedora I've got the below message on the screen and the computer was not responding. render error detectedEIR : 0x00000010[drm : i915_handle_error]
I think I have Bug #444372 which seems to be fixed and available. I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 l Linux 2.6.31-20generic #58-Ubuntu SPM Fri Mar 12 i686 GNU This was listed as fixed 2010-02-10 and Bug Watch Updater on 2010-03-02 Changed in linux:
status: Confirmed → Fix Released
I installed 9.10 by ISO DVD gotten from the Ubuntu website after 2010-03-02.I have installed all updates in the Update Manager today.The error output is still showing up in my syslog:
My system hangs frequently. The desktop looks normal and the mouse is alive but nothing on the desktop will respond. CTL ALT F2 does not respond. I'm not sure if this bug is related.My hardware is an emachine D2823 Celeron D 325 with 256MB. Not the best and I expect it to be slow but not hang forcing a plug pull.
Sometimes my screen-saver crashes, showing a blank screen with "render error detected ..." message.This message is displayed only short time <1s, then login screen appears.Due to short time, I'm not able to read the complete error message on screen. Is there a way to delay the displaying of such errors so I can read it properly?In the /var/log/messages I have found the following: Code: Jul 9 09:22:33 dc7100 kernel: render error detected, EIR:
The message above occurred with GEdit running in background and while attempting to use yahoo mail in Iceweasel. System froze and I rebooted.
While Iceweasel has been the browser used the most since installing the system and has been the program in use during the freezes, Epiphany was also tested and was far less functional, with rendering failures occurring with nearly each modification of a page, though not all fatal. With Epiphany, re-rendering and reloading of a page was only accomplished by using my mouse wheel, other input methods left a gray, unusable screen.
My installation was complicated by the following factors and goals: dual-boot capability with the idea of loading another linux flavor such as Ubuntu onto a partition. retain 2 "legacy" ReiserFS data partitions used under Debian Etch. use 1 ReiserFS partition as /home
What suggestions do you all have on stopping these system freezes and errors?
Other possibly useful factors:
I chose "Expert" (graphical) install as it seemed the only way to enable dual-boot capability.
I loaded the ReiserFS compatibility modules during the system install.
I chose the "highlighted" kernel during the install out of 4 choices. The kernel I chose is Linux version 2.6.32-5-686 (Debian 2.6.32-31) (email@example.com) (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-4) ) #1 SMP Tue Mar 8 21:36:00 UTC 2011 - however I cannot rule out the possibility that one of the other 3 kernels wouldn't have worked better.
I chose to enable the version of the system that had the most options for hardware compatibility instead of a more limited, smaller system customized to my hardware.
The default system settings for inactivity would log me off, as ppropriate. Because of a pattern of problems awakening from sleep mode, on 5/13 3am I changed the log off setting to never to avoid errors when the system should awaken. But still yet another freeze at on 5/13 at 22:49 while multiple windows were open.
I been running both OS's for a few months now with no major problems besides wireless internet issues. Today, however, as I go to boot my laptop up, the Dell logo loads with the F2 and F12 boot and setup options which both work. Directly after that though I get the message "GRUB loading. Symbol '?' not found. Aborted. Press any key to Exit." then it repeats when I push a key, and then it tells me to press F1 to retry, F2 to go to setup, or F5 to run diagnostics. It passes all the tests in diagnostics. I've tried booting off of the ubuntu cd I used to load it initially with no luck. So I'm stuck at either that error message or in setup but I can't go any further, and it does not change anything when I tried to boot from the cd.
I have upgraded my EeePC from 9.10 to 10.04 and got now a black screen after I can login. On the right upper corner, I find an error message:
Quote: Install problem!The cnfiguration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. On the bottom bar I selected English / USA / GNOME for Language / Keyboard and Session Above is the best I ever could come, but most of the time I only can type in the password, and it stops there, without bottom bar (language/keyboard/session), but with the Error.
I have just installed Lucid Lynx as after a live run of it I thought it was about time to upgrade. Everything ran smoothly in the live version so I backed up my files and installed it. When I went to boot I get this - Grub loading, please wait ... Error 2
The strange thing is it seems to be specific to the computer. I have an older, lower spaced desktop, computer that I tried the hard drive in and it worked fine. Problem is its too low spaced for what I want so it seems the install went ok but its something with the computer? How I would be able to boot into the install?
I'm using the ./livecd-iso-to-disk.sh script to create a bootable usb. Now in the arguments you're supposed to indicate a partition name. But my usb device gets auto-mounted to /media. And if I try to pass in /dev/sdb it gives me a "no media detected" message. What do?
I was trying to install ubuntu 9.10 as a dual boot system with windows and I recieved this error message: The Grub package failed to install into /target/. Without the Grub boot loader, the installed system will not boot
This Error comes up after 94% of the install. I also cannot seem to get the side by side install option to work (sometimes this option appears sometimes it does not) I am not sure but I beleive seome of the install files have been placed on the hard drive because I only get the option now to install on the hard drive and totally wipe clean or the emptiest hard drive. So how would I get the possible Ubuntu install off the Hard drive. I have used this CD to Install before it has no scratches therefore should work. Also If I have Win Xp on a Raid 0 will the Ubuntu 9.10 install ?
I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.
I have a dual boot system with ubuntu 9.10 x64 and Windows 7. Everything has been working fine for a a long time but yesterday I tried to delete an unused partition through the Disk Utility in ubuntu (System->Adminstration->Disk Utility) and everything was messed up. I used to get the "Grub error: Unknown filesystem". I managed to create an ubuntu bootable usb and followed some tutorials for fixing grub but all i managed to do is to get another error: "Grub error: No such disc". After some experimentation i got "Grub stage 1.5" which gave me a grub> command prompt./dev/sda is the drive containing Windows and Ubuntu.
[ Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 ============================= Boot Info Summary: ============================== => Grub 0.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive in partition #6 for /boot/grub/stage2 and /boot/grub/menu.lst.
Greetings from Greece. I tried to install opensuse 11.3 in an empty disk . Unfortunately the installation progress stops in 88% and the message error says "error copy live image to the disk". I have burn two different cd but the result is always the same.Is it a hardware problem or the cd is not correct?I had the 11.2 version in the same pc without any problem for a long time.
for some reason my first updating was interrupted and from then i cannot update. i get the following message:
rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery error: db3 error(-30974) from dbenv->open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - (-30974) error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm CRITICAL:yum.main: Error: rpmdb open failed [root@laptop etc]# yum repolist [Code]....
I use ubuntu 10.10. Everything was great until i formatted my C drive which had win xp. Now at startup an error message occurs instead of booting ubuntu (BOOTMGR is missing. Press Cntrl+alt+delete to restart). I searched a little bit and found that may be I need to install GRUB (boot loader). how do i install grub? using "fdisk -l" .. I found out that my bootable partition is C drive (NTFS /dev/sda1) while ubuntu is installed on another partition (ext3 /dev/sda3)!
I have an old computer that I use for trying out software and other things before putting them on my newer machine so as to avoid irreparable damage. The machine has 2 hard discs; the first disc contains Windows and I wanted to use the second disc for Linux. I installed Fedora 14 on the second disc and followed this with Ubuntu 10.10.
After I installed Fedora I re-booted and had a choice between booting into Windows or Fedora. After adding Ubuntu I assumed that Grub2 would pick up both Windows and Fedora and add them to the grub menu but instead, the grub menu only contained the options to boot Fedora or Ubuntu. I tried running 'sudo update-grub' but got the following message:
"cannot access /var/lib/os-prober/mount/boot Boot: No such file or directory"
When I had a look in /os-prober all that was there was a file called 'labels' and when I opened it it consisted of the one line "Fedora 1" It looks to me, who doesn't know a lot about grub2, that something is missing from grub and had wondered whether to re-install it or whether doing so would be jumping out of the frying pan into the fire.
Update-notifier told me there were updates today and I installed them. Among them were some for chromium (the browser, not the game ). After the update I couldn't start the browser. I tried starting from terminal and got: "Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-minimal.c: 138: realloc: Assertion `ptr == alloc_last_block' failed!" "I haz a fail!", I thought to myself and then tried rebooting and then reinstalling. Neither worked. This is on a 64-bit machine. Everything else works as expected. Using Firefox now, but I want my chromium-browser as well.
I try to setup a HPC cluster with CentOS 5.5. But now there is no Internet connection available in the room where the hardware is located so I set up ntpd server using synchronization with local clock (maybe I do something wrong). Here is my ntp.conf file on a master node (the master node has IP 10.0.1.1, a file server has IP 10.0.1.2 and compute nodes are 10.0.1.3..10.0.1.11, comments are omitted):
Any time I try to install software building it from source when I run make I get a waring "Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete". Some software build successfully and run normally after install but some build tasks are failed for example when I try to build RPM's via 'make rpms' for BLCR I get an error message about invalid date in changelog. But the system date seems to be right. I suppose I have invalid settings of NTP.
I'm trying to install Fedora for the first time on my Desktop. Unfortunately, upon restart once the installation is complete I get the following error:
This is from Fedora 12 x86_64 DVD. I presume that this obviously has to do with my disk selection during partitioning, during which I deselcted the two drives that I didn't want to be part of the install and left the one that I did selected. I also selected "use entire disk". The drive had copies of both Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it, which I expect were wiped out during install.
I know that the details are sparse...but that's all I did. I'm happy to go back into the installer to retreive any necessary information that may be needed/to reinstall.
Today, I finished assembling my dream computer. I can boot it into the BIOS, and I checked that everything was working correctly through there. Anyway, I attempted to transfer the hard drive from this computer to that one. This computer is a Dell (blech) Optiplex GX280 with an Intel processor and integrated graphics. The new one has an AMD Phenom II processor with an ATI card and an ASRock motherboard (drastically different machines, I know...) When I try to boot, GRUB gives me an error message that says something like:
Code: blah whatever cannot find /dev/disk/by-uuid/372de761-9577-48be-ba19-c6b2890cb229 Did I do something wrong installing the hard drive? Or is this a problem that is going to happen no matter how hard I try to make it not happen? If the second is true, will it help if I wipe the disk and reinstall Ubuntu on the new computer?
P.S. I know similar threads about transferring hard disks have been posted, but no thread has mentioned this error.
I made a clean install of opense Suse and by mistake I overwrited the menu.lst (because of the restoration utility). As a result I have the grub error 15 : file not found, and tried everything I could think.
Grub is installed on the MBR and boots from the extended partition. The new openSuse is on sda8, there is an old openSuse on sda4 but xorg is broken. I can boot on Windows, and sda4, but not on sda8 menu.lst
I have a pc that double boots Ubuntu Linux and Windows 7..I 've downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu, 9.1, burned the iso and then had a clean install of Ubuntu, over the last version.. After the reboot, GRUB stopped working printing ERROR 15.SuperGrub disk did nothing, so I opened Ubuntu Live and checked my hard disk for /boot/grub/menu.lst but I couldn't find it
Just delete a linux partition and now when i boot a message appears and says error: unknown filesystem grub rescue >
I have search on the net for this problem and i have understand it a little. But my situation is a bit different and because i don't want to format my hard disc i wanna try to fix it. So before a couple months i download ubuntu 9.10 and i installed it a month later. But my computer used to crash all the time and i couldnt use it. So i download the latest ubuntu 10.4 and install it while having windows xp and the old ubuntu 9.10(so i had windows xp, ubuntu 9.10 and ubuntu 10.4 partitions). Now i tried to delete the partition of ubuntu 9.10 from disc utility. so i have the message i wrote above when i boot. I dont wanna delete my windows xp and ubuntu 10.4. what should i do to stop this message from appearing.
I installed Ubuntu as a dual-boot system with Windows XP very carefully. Unfortunately, though given the option to boot Windows at the grub menu, when I select it, I get an error. Booting Ubuntu on my other partition works just fine, no issues.
I also attempted to access files from the first partition in Ubuntu using gparted, but once I mounted it, all of my files were not present. I only saw manufacturer files, and many files and folders I didn't recognize.
Also, as an aside, my laptop monitor is suffering from occasional black-outs during use. Ubuntu gave me a little toolbar flag, telling me to go to a website and use the patches given to fix it, but I'm not quite so sure where to input the given patch text. Do I really need to go through the trouble of finding the source code, etc., or is it more simple?
I'm encountering an unusual problem with GRUB 2. Whenever I start up my system, my BIOS'es load and do their thing, and then hand the show over to GRUB, which is supposed to not appear or do anything because my GRUB countdown is set to 0, but instead I get two errors like this that appear for about 5 or 10 seconds (greatly delaying startup) and then Xubuntu, the first entry on my Grub menu, loads: (I set GRUB to automatically boot my first entry):
Code: error: no suitable mode found error: unknown command 'terminal'
I am running Ubuntu 11. 04 on my 160gb HD, which is making funny noises and could be on its way out. I have in my PC a 500gb HD on which I would like to install 11.04, but, althogh the dis has installed OK on my laptop, and on my 160HD on my desktop, it will not install on my 500gbHD, everytime I try I get the message "no root file system is defined, please correct this from the partitioning menu"

I have Ubuntu Jaunty & Linux Multimedia Studio 0.4.2. In attempt to update to LMMS 0.4.5, I downloaded & attempted to install : lmms_0.4.5~ppa-1jaunty_i386.deb and got the following error message : Error : Dependency is not satisfiable : lmms-common (=0.4.5~ppa-1jaunty). What went wrong and is there an easier way to update ? Also, should I remove the older version or just install the latest on top of it ?
