OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 / Gnome Flakey Auto Bootup & Shutdown

Mar 29, 2010

I didn't notice any relevant complaints regarding 11.2 in the archives. The bootup & shutdow may be different problems. Randomly my recent install boots up fine or hangs with a blank black screen. A Ctl Alt F2 gets me to a prompt. Startx returns a lockfile comment that X is already running.

From here I can shut 11.2 down and restart it OK. There must be a bootlog kept in /var somewhere. I haven't tried the non-automatic bootup. The shutdown randomly drops back to the logout screen. Usually a shutdown command from there will shut it down. Sometimes shutdown doesn't work, but restart will finish the shutdown.

OpenSUSE Install :: OpenSUSE 11.4 Delayed Shutdown While Pressing The Shutdown Button?

Mar 12, 2011

I did a live upgrade from 11.3 KDE and observe a following issue.When I press the shutdown button on the laptop it initiates the shutdown and shuts down fine but after a significant delay of time (something like 30 seconds). When I click the shutdown button in KDE it initiates the shutdown instantly. This was not the case in 11.3 where the shutdown worked the same regardless of the method that triggered it

Debian :: How To Log Bootup And Shutdown Messages (with Systemd)

Jun 23, 2015

During the boot-sequence of jessie there is more text flying by on the screen (including some errors or warnings) than I can read thorugh fast enough. I don't think this is very serious stuff, and if it were I could always look at dmesg and or syslog i /var/log but I would find it really convenient to log these messages in a file instead of sifting through or grep-ing dmesg.

When duckduckgoing this matter I found [URL] ....

I installed tried bootlogd but when configuring it to "yes" and rebooting nothing comes up in /var/log/boot.

Then I saw this line in above link

If you use systemd as your init system, you may need to use systemctl to debug boot problems.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Won't Shutdown / Fix It?

Apr 7, 2011

I've installed openSUSE 11.4 fresh on my laptop. When I do a shutdown from Gnome and choose the Shut Down option I always return back to the login screen and from there I need to choose the shutdown command again and it works from there. Is there a way to fix the first shutdown option from within Gnome so that it shuts down instead of logging out?

Ubuntu :: Bootup And Shutdown Screens Have Ugly Terminal Text

May 4, 2010

My home desktop computer upgraded to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 without any problems. However, after all was said and done, the boot up and shut down screens look like crap. They are all in terminal text, and without any graphics. I have attached pictures of what they look like. This can't be right. Is there a way I can set the system to use the proper graphics when booting up and shutting down? I like my computer to be pretty.

This is what it does for most of the boot process:
boot1.jpg
It does this just before the screen where I enter my password.
boot2.jpg
This is how it looks when it shuts down:

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Shutdown/restart Under 11.2?

Nov 26, 2009

I'm running openSUSE 11.2 Gnome Desktop Environment. Whenever I try to either shutdown or restart my machine as a "normal user", I've been logged off instead! When I try to re-login the screen (xorg) freezes. I don't know how to debug this problem. The problem could be related to hal or d-bus or policykit or X-org..... simply I don't know. N.B. I can shutdown and restart my machine only as "super-user" (root).

Ubuntu :: Resolution During Bootup, Shutdown, Switching Users, And The Theme Icons Look Very Grainy & Cheap?

Nov 4, 2010

I have a problem where the resolution during bootup, shutdown, switching users, and the theme icons look very grainy & cheap. It might have started when I booted in failsafe graphics mode and after that, it never went away. Could be wrong about how it happened but is there a way to get out of failsafe mode? Or a way to reconfigure default, normal graphics?

OpenSUSE Install :: Blank Screen & Mouse After Bootup

Jul 18, 2010

I just installed 11.3 on a Toshiba Satellite A305 laptop. After going through the install process it restarted (without a full reboot I believe) and spent a very long time going through a bunch of message. E.g. it spends about 10-15 minutes building java fonts, and warning me that Japanese/Chinese/Korean might not work in Java.About 20+ minutes after bootup it finishes with all the status messages (including a message that said it couldn't execute /usr/bin/cmp !?) and goes to a blank screen with a mouse sprite -- first a spinning circle, then a regular arrow sprite. So it's not a totally black screen, but all I have is the mouse sprite.

I let it sit there for over an hour.I think it was hitting the disk but nothing happened. I tried rebooting and it did the same thing.I tried setting the "nomodeset" boot parameter, which had helped someone with a similar problem no change.I tried it in failsafe mode no change.

OpenSUSE :: Shutdown Gnome Directly Without Getting Exited Into The Login Screen?

Dec 10, 2010

I am running Opensuse 11.3 which had the KDE desktop loaded by default. I have since installed the Gnome desktop which I access via the log in screen whenever I want to use it.

One thing that is annoying me is that whenever I load gnome I am unable to shut down the computer directly from the gnome panel.

When I click the shutdown button, I want the computer to shut down, but rather gnome exits into the login screen and it is from there that I need to click the shutdown button in order to shutdown the computer.

Is there a way to avoid this and be able to shutdown from the gnome panel?

I do not want to uninstall KDE as a solution, I would like the flexibility of having both desktops.

OpenSUSE Install :: Skipped Services In Runlevel 5 Stops Bootup?

After the GRUB prompt, my boot process does not advance to the login GUI. It kicks me out to the console view of the boot process and ends with a text prompt for logging in.

I get the following message just before the "Welcome to OpenSUSE 11.1" line:

Skipped services in runlevel 5: nfs

what's happening and how can I retrieve the login GUI?

OpenSUSE Install :: Bootup Superblock Issue Related To /dev/disk/?

Jul 23, 2010

I decided I needed to expand my openSUSE partition because I was running out of room. There was some unallocated space following my /home and swap partitions that I wanted to assign to my / partition.

So after taking note that bad things could happen (as I've read everywhere), I got myself a copy of GParted (since Yast! partitioner doesn't move partitions, does it?) to start getting the thing to work. Well, actually, I got PartedMagic which has GParted (I realize it could be a problem NOW if they didn't have the latest version).

So the first step was to move the swap partition. I decided to do it one step at a time and only moved the swap partition to the end. That turned out fine...no problems whatsoever.

The next step is where the problem came in. It was moving the /home partition. It took a while to move but once it got to the end, it showed a message that was similar in nature to "error detected" without giving a long list of error messages. If it did, I probably would have copied it down. There wasn't anything in the "logs" either in GParted besides what it showed. Looking back, I probably should've went into /vars/logs to get additional log information but I guess I wasn't smart enough to do so (provided that GParted does leave log messages there which I think it does).

After that, it refreshed the drive and it ended up showing no partitions with an error and saying the only thing it can do is create a new partition table. After that, openSUSE wouldn't boot. After loading, (both normal and failsafe modes) it gives me the message in the link at the bottom. I can still access those partitions fine. Nothing's corrupted. Windows also boots up fine (it's on a different drive though) and reads the affected drive fine. Linux-based LiveCDs (including openSUSE 11.3) reads the partitions fine too.

I've tried using e2fsck on my ext4 partitions with commands I found during a search and they seemed to "fix" those partitions but it still won't boot and gives me the same message. Looking at it carefully, it seems the reason it can't find a superblock is because it can't find part8 of whatever that thing under /dev/disk/by-id/ is.

I would very much prefer a failsafe (or at least mostly failsafe) solution that won't (or is unlikely) to result in requiring the restoration of a backup but I do understand that there is always the chance of something going wrong that will kill everything. Considering that I can still access the data on that drive, I don't believe the data is corrupted. Maybe the drive itself (as in whatever signatures it may leave) but not the filesystems.

This is what I end up with trying to boot into openSUSE (sorry, I don't know how to get the log when it doesn't put it in logs directory: https://docs.google.com/leaf?id=0B3A...ut=list&num=50

OpenSUSE Install :: Higher Framebuffer Resolutions Not Available During Bootup/console - Nvidia Properietary Driver?

Jun 26, 2011

I'm using the 270.41.19 nvidia properietary driver for my Geforce GTX460 graphics card. I have a Sony TV connected to my HDMI and I know it supports the 1920x1080 resolution. Yes it works after gnome or other DE loads up.

But during the GRUB screen and the bootup console - It defaulted to a 640x480 resolution (as it always does with the nvidia prop driver). I usually used to check the output of hwinfo --framebuffer and choose the resolution by appending the right vga=0xabc parameter.

But now I have a problem since hwinfo says the best widescreen 16:10 framebuffer resolution that my card supports is 1280x800. Here is the output from hwinfo --vbe which should give the info about both my gfx card and my TV.

The initial nouveau driver was able to output native 1920x1080 during the bootup on the console without issues, so I guess even the properietary driver should be able to output (If my understanding is right the nvidia module loads later during the bootup and only is required for the X but not for the console itself).

Ubuntu Servers :: System Won't Shutdown + Apache Not Auto Starting / Fix It?

Nov 12, 2010

First post here so I'll do my best to provide the information needed.

System:

Dell Poweredge R310
Xeon 3460 2.8Ghz
4x2GB ram
4x 160GB Sata 7.2k (RAID 10)
Ubuntu Server 64bit

If I type as root, "reboot" or "shutdown -r now", nothing happenings - except the apache2 process stops + the usual "System is going down for reboot now". If I type "shutdown -h now" the system goes down.

Upon booting the server back up, MySQL starts correctly, but Apache2 does not - I have to run "service apache2 start", and it starts up fine.

I feel the 2 issues are related. I've reinstalled apache2 completely (configs and all) and this didn't help - I used yum to install/reinstall it.
