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?

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?

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 System Freezes During Boot

Sep 7, 2010

I love opensuse as it's much snappier than MINT. But my system 11.3 is freezing while booting. I pressed ESC during splash and can see messages on the screen. The last message is ATA3 Exception EMASK. I have uploaded the /var/boot.msg here klogd 1.4.1, log source = ksys - Suse Freeze - CuQAd3dg - Pastebin. There are no other log files!

My system:
Intel Core2duo
Mother board Intel DG31PR
Intel integrated graphics G33
250 GB SATA2 Hard drive

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Freezes On Boot Up After New Install?

Nov 16, 2009

I installed openSUSE earlier today, I have Windows 7 on this PC too. I installed using all the default option.Installed fine, booted up. Working perfectly. Used it for a few hoursI changed an option to enable the desktop effects (the 3d effects). When I did this the computer froze completely, I had to pull the plug.When I rebooted the computer froze on reboot.I get to the point where it displays the graphical screen, then the screen switches to the brighter green, higher resloution graphical screen. I get the white progress bar under the chameleon. It gets to half way. Then the mouse cursor becomes quite flickery and slow, and it doesn't progress any further. Again to reboot I have to pull the plug. (Although interestingly the contrast buttons (F4/F5 on my laptop still work).Steps I have taken.I have repeated the install, does exaclty the same thing.

I have downloaded the 32 bit version (I originally installed the 64 bit) and again resinstalled - does exactly the same thing)I have hit escape so I could see the not graphical boot screen, unfortunately it get past that, goes to the graphic screen/progress bar and then hangs at the same place.The LiveCD (running from the CD still works fine)I really dont know what to try. If nothing else could you tell me the quickest way to remove it, delete the grup bootloader and recover the space it took from my partitions.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Freezes After GRUB (Normal Or Failsafe) Boot Splash Screen

Apr 17, 2011

I noticed that after making my build in suse studio my system freezes immediately after GRUB ( Normal or Failsafe) boot splash screen. I also noticed that this happens only with the specified kernel below. I'm not sure when using Kernel 2.6.37, one had the same problem. I never used it. The original kernel 2.6.34 had no problems such as the one I have described. My systems has no further problems only that it takes several restarts to go past the "Freeze". Below is a list of my system specs:

openSUSE 11.3
Kernel-pae from Kernel Stable.
GRUB 0.97-174.1 from openSUSE 11.4
Upstart 0.6.5-33.1
xorg-x11-server 7.6_1.9.3-142.1 from X11:xorg 11.3 repo.

The GRUB from openSUSE 11.4 has been very stable and non-problematic. I will be buying an Intel core i5-2500K in a few months that's why I need the latest kernel and XOrg-X11-server. What could be causing the freezing?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clock Not Showing Correctly The Time

Jan 12, 2010

I have this problem for a while but didn't notice it until lately(i did reboot the machine for few months). Now that i reboot it frequently i notice that the clock is always not what is supposed to be. I'm in Toronto, Canada so it should be GMT -5:00. Sometimes it shows GMT-6, sometimes -10, now is GMT -11. Anyone would know why i have this issue? I'm running Suse11.1 on a 64 bit. My laptop which runs on 32 bit is working fine.(well probably different versions for kernel and kde.(whatever was in th repository to be updated i updated)
Version 4.3.4 (KDE 4.3.4) "release 2"

OpenSUSE Install :: Clock Messed Up 2 Hours Early Or Forward - Idk

Jun 14, 2010

i probably messed up the clock somehow... I think during install. Linux keeps messing up windows clock... And vice versa... When the clock in windows is correct (say, 2 PM), the clock in Linux when i reboot says 4 PM... And when i set up the clock in Linux to the correct time (in this case 2 PM) and boot into windows, windows clock says 12 PM...

Of course, when i correct it in windows, linux clock gets messed up again... 2 hours early or forward, idk... I'm not sure what i did to make this happen... Maybe has something to do with hardware clock... I don't wanna constantly correct time whenever i change systems...

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.

SUSE / Novell :: Booting Stops At Setting Up CMOS Clock

Dec 7, 2008

The suse 10.0 64 bit partition on my box stops booting when it is setting up the cmos clock. The suse 10.0 32 bit partition boots up without a problem. I never had a problem with the suse 10.0 64 bit partition up until now. Is it possible to fix the problem using puppy linux and editing a configuration file? I do not think it is a hardware issue if the other partition on the drive boots up. Would puppy linux be a good way to backup files from this partition or can I mount the partition using the 32 bit os?

Ubuntu Installation :: Lubuntu Install Freezes On Boot Up?

Aug 23, 2010

Linux newb here. I was looking for a lightweight distro that I really like and Lubuntu was it. I installed in on all three of my comps with out issues and my old Dell desktop(512mb ram) is flying now. Way faster than XP even right after a fresh install of both on the same desktop. On my fourth install, my girlfriends old toshiba laptop, it installed fine. After the restart and reboot it gets to the Lubuntu logo with the 5 dots under it. It gets through 4 of the dots then freezes. I left it for 20 minutes and it was stuck.

I tried booting from cd again and check disc for defects. It said it found 2 files with errors, press any key to reboot. Which I did and it just booted right back into the freeze. Maybe since I have to manually make it boot from cd every time it was wanting to boot back into the CD after the disc check, I'm not sure. I tried burning a new iso on a slower speed, same thing for a total of 3 reinstalls with the same effect. The only thing different about this install compared to my others is:

A) I had to flash the bios from windows before I started to even get the damn thing to be able to boot from CD

B) I decided to just wipe XP and install Lubuntu on the whole drive.

Ubuntu :: Netbook Wont Boot And Re-install Freezes

Feb 9, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu netbook remix on my laptop

(sony vaio 1.5GHZ core 2 duo, 1GB ram, intel integrated graphics)

and it was working fine until a faulty power outlet caused my laptop to turn off and on around 2 or 3 times in quick succession.

When i went to reboot, a screen appears with "GNU GRUB version ... " written on the top and i have the option to boot 4 different things, 2 of which are labeled " (recovery mode) " along with the option to do a " Memory Test "

Ive tried booting into all four, and each time a bunch of text streams by and then stops, leaving the prompt " (initramfs)_ " which stays forever, and means nothing to me.

So i decided to try and re-install using the same usb drive that worked before, and the installer boots up fine, but freezes once i click "Forward" to initiate the installation from within the ubuntu OS being run off the USB drive.

I tried using a few different USB drives, and a CD, i even tried installing regular Ubuntu 10.10, but the same thing happens each time - the installer doesn't respond once i click "forward" to initiate the installation.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 64bit Install Freezes After Reboot During Autoconfiguration - GeForce 9300 Chipset (MCP7A)

Sep 15, 2010

I just wanted to install openSUSE 11.3 64bit. Installation works fine until reboot request. It switches to console, saying that it tries to load without reboot, screen becomes black, i got a cursor with animated wait-symbol and then it freezes. Can't move the mouse, no reaction on keyboard inputs, HDD-led not blinking. If I reset my PC and boot the new installation, it says that an error occurred and asks me to complete the unfinished installation. It starts auto-configuration and freezes again at about 3%. I tried again and some time it did not start the graphical yast but in textmode. The freeze came at the same position, but it posted many lines on console with error messages. I could not scroll, so I saw only parts of it, saying kernel panic and many addresses.

I guessed that it has to do with my chipset and graphics card, it is a nVidia GeForce 9300 chipset (MCP7A) with onboard graphics. It works fine with openSUSE 11.2 64bit by the way, but it was not supported in earlier versions than 11.2. So I tried to install it with proprietary drivers. I started the installation again and added the nVidia repository and a Packman repo and selected the driver which works fine on 11.2. Error was same as above. Next I tried an openSUSE 11.3 32bit Live CD that came with some PC magazine and lay around and it is booting and works fine!

This was confusing to me, so I wanted to try the 64bit version of the live CD. Which was again not booting. It freezes at some part, maybe when it tries to start X. But it also freezes booting with 'nomodeset' (found it somewhere here), in VESA mode and even in textmode! So i guess it's not X what causes the freeze. But it is sometime at the end of booting up, as far as I can say. I would like to use the 64bit version but I don't know where to search for the problem. I checked every checksum before burning, so a broken media should not be the reason

Debian Installation :: Boot Freezes After Install On Encrypted Volume

Jan 1, 2016

I just installed Debian Testing on an encrypted partition (using the encryption feature in the installer). Problem is when I boot I enter the passphrase and then Debian starts to load a bit and then it stops and won't move again. During a normal boot the boot stops after : EDAC sbridge : Couldn't find mci handler Then do a recovery mode boot from grub loader so more information is displayed during the boot time and it stops after : [12.513770] fb: switching to nouveaufb from simple it stops there I can't type anything, I can reboot the computer with ctrl+alt+del tho

I was booting just fine in a previous installation on a MBR-partitioned disk (now it's GPT-partitioned). I have to add that during installation I added a second encrypted volume on a HDD (while / is on a SSD) that mounts to /data. When few days ago I installed it on the MBR-partitioned disk it asked me for the /data passphrase pretty fast, now it just seems to boot and asks me only one passphrase until it freezes.

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Freezes After Boot With Fresh Install 10.04?

May 22, 2010

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-k195hp laptop, in which i've installed Ubuntu 10.04. Before installation i tried the Livedisk environment to make sure that everything would work out okay.

The results were fine, ubuntu even got the onboard Wireless card working which was causing problems in windows. But after the install ubuntu has become erratic. It sometimes boots and does a lot of work but other times it'll boot and freeze as soon as i move the mouse, or even earlier. I am pretty certain the CD was not the cause as i've already used it to install 10.04 in another system and i'm writing from it right now. I got the 10.04 iso on the day it came out and thought that maybe it wasn't complete so tried updating my install, but it had an error during the update installation.

Now even the live CD won't work as it hangs in the loading screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: Aspire One D150 USB Install Freezes At Boot Time

Jun 28, 2010

I am trying to install ubuntu netbook edition on my Acer aspire one D150. I have tried to do this before with version 9 with no luck so I waited until 10 to see if the problem goes away; apparently it has not. I put the ubuntu install files onto a USB stick according to the instructions from ubuntu here for windows (I have windows xp on the netbook now).

When I shut the PC down and turn it back on with the USB key inserted, the laptop just seems to hang at the ACER splashscreen. This screen is where I could press F2 for setup or F12 for boot order; the buttons do not respond, the USB key appears inactive. Again, it just seems to hang. I've waited for as long as letting it run all night to see if it goes anywhere by the morning with no luck.

OpenSUSE Install :: System Freezes After Update To 11.2?

Nov 24, 2009

I upgraded my Dell 2.53G machine from 10.3 to 11.2 (KDE desktop). Everything seemed fine for the first day. Then the whole desktop froze. No screen update, no keyboard, and, though you could see the mouse move, clicking didn't do anything. The only way out was to pull the plug.

After multiple attempts at fixing it failed, I repartitioned the disk and tried a "clean install". Everything worked for about 2 hours. The system is currently frozen. The harddrive is quiet. The only "3rd party app" was Adobe Flash, pulled from the Non-OSS repository.

It freezes without doing anything special.

OpenSUSE Install :: Migrated To 11.3 - Now Shutdown Freezes Up

Sep 26, 2010

Yesterday I migrated from 11.0 to 11.3 (32-bit version) and began customizing personal desktop settings once everything seemed to be working OK. Today I continued customizing the personal desktop settings. Now everything freezes up during shutdown.

The screen goes blank with the arrow pointer frozen in place. Hitting enter or ctrl-alt-esc has no effect. One time, I walked away for 30 minutes to see if it would resolve itself, but there was no effect.

I saw someone is having a similar problem with the 64-bit version, but there were no responses. Where do I go from here?
