OpenSUSE Network :: Rsync Freezes Whole Computer Without Error Messages
Feb 26, 2011
I am currently facing a problem with rsync (or maybe ssh, I don't know yet). I have daily backups that are done via cron using rsync from my computer (client) to a NAS. And systematically during these backups my computer completely freezes (no remote login possible, nothing), so I have to hard reboot. As you might imagine, I cannot do this every day. In /var/log/messages there is just a line like that :
Feb 26 17:23:53 eggplant rsyslogd: -- MARK --
right before the hang. The rsync worked well before and I don't really know what changed in my system config. In /var/log/rsyncd.log I sometimes (but not every time) I get :
2011/02/26 16:39:19  rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at rsync.c(543) [Receiver=3.0.7]
I aldready update the default rsync from opensuse 11.3 to 18.104.22.168, but it does not help. How can I at least know what is going wrong? I am trying to track down the problem but don't know how to start. Last also a log of the rsync command (client) running ssh in verbose using the command "rsync -av --delete --timeout=180 -e "ssh -v -p xxxxxx -i /root/.ssh/rsync-key_eggplant" /mds root@xxxxxxxx:/volume1/autoBackup/eggplant":

I bought the wireless PCI network card WMP600N from Linksys. I tried to connect with my router, but no success. The correct driver is installed(RT2800), the necessary package WPA_supplement is also installed. My providers settings are WPA-PSK with a shared key. Key encryption is TKIP. I can't choose TKIP in the Yast network menu. so i chose passphrase.
the weird thing is that the wifimanager says WEP is on but it's not, at least not in my router and i did not setup WEP to. see picture 6. i had to use manual boot "ifup wlan0" because when i use boot at startup the whole systeem freezes. anyway, when i use ifup wlan0 as root in the konsole, the system also freezes. i have explained it clearly, please take a look a the pictures.
If I could I would change the boot order but I can't do that (I have a Dell Studio 1747). I try F2 to enter the BIOS set up, but I still end up with that error and never get to the setup. F12 doesn't work either (F12 is for the boot order) so I can't boot from the DVD with the Win7 installation DVD as the computer just freezes and I can't get past the Dell splash screen.
I have tried to remove the coin battery on the motherboard in an attempt to reset the BIOS but that didn't work either.
F2 = error F12 = freeze Reset bios by removing coin size battery = no change
I assume there is no use reformatting the HD by attaching it to another computer and re-install Win7. Is it a motherboard problem?
I'm running 11.3, 64bit.It downloads everything fine, but not long after it starts installing things, my PC completely freezes. I tried giving it 20 minutes, but it didn't seem to want to come back to me.What does this mean? Is my OpenSUSE broken?
Does anyone have any info on the status of the Max Planck Institute server ftp5.gwdg.de? I maintain selected local copies of openSUSE updates and KDE etc. using an rsync:/ connection to this server but it seems to have been unavailable for the last couple of days at least - it may have been longer but I've had hardware problems on my home server recently.
I've got a strange sendmail problem I've never come across before...Messages less that 2500 lines (approx 169kb) are sent correctly - anything else goes straight into the queue and is never delivered. The server sits in a intranet, is not connected to the outside world, and forwards its mail to a smart host.All configuration has been done through yast, so there are no unusual settings. I've run sendmail on SuSE from version 6 upwards, and this is the first time I've come across this - it's driving me potty
I have been running Senmail on SuSE 11.1 for the last few years with no problems.Since installing SuSE 11.3 a few months ago I have been having problems getting Sendmail to send to some (only a few) servers.If I disable the firewall # SuSEFirewall2 stop.I can send successfully using # sendmail -v -q, or # sendmail -v -qIxxxxx.When I re-enable the firewall I will start to get the timeouts/temporarily unavailable messages again (but as mentioned above, only for some servers) even though I can successfully telnet these servers when the firewall is on. When I disable the firewall the delayed messages can again be sent.Has anybody any ideas what I need to change (presumably in the Firewall) to get things working correctly? 'SMTP with sendmail' is already selected under 'Services to Allow' under YaST Firewall->Allowed Services..
I just want to change the text displayed on bootup from "Desktop - opensuse - lotsaversion numbers" to "OpenSUSE 11.3".I tried doing it during installation, but it didn't seem to take affect, and now it won't let me do it through Yast
I have a number of applications (Evolution, Openoffice Writer & Calc, Firefox) that are popping up an error message when I close them, but the window snaps closed before I can read the message. The applications run fine as far as I can tell. how to slow or pause the error message so I can figure out what's going on.
In the firewall, I opened port 5900 for TCP traffic. Now the console is displaying packet information whenever a connection is made. Why does it send a message to stdout/stderr for an allowed connection? How can I stop it? Logging level is set to critical only, and not-accepted packets should only be logged for the internal and DMZ zones.
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4. The problem is that I can set easily what to log (for firewall), but not where to log. And currently the same logs are written to /var/log/firewall and /var/log/messages. I still want messages be written into the first one, but not the second one — it is redundant and it is polluting regular system logs.So how to stop the firewall from writting logs to /var/log/messages?
Yesterday, after I reinstall suse linux enterprise 11 in my note book. I got some error messages. They are : From Suse linux installing processedacroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm After installed suse linux. error messages for all options in yast2.
The story is when I started installing suse linux, I checked first the live cd and I got message that live cd is okay. But, when the installation process was running, I got 2 messages error. But, the messages were informing me to verified from software management module.
So, my questions are :What are acroread-9.3.2-0.1.1.i586.rpm and yast2-pkg-bindings-2.17.45-0.2.10.i586.rpm and what are they fungtions? If my guess is not wrong, acroread means acrobat reader. Is it true? Where is others place I can download them (no.1,2,3) beside the live cd? Or, if the easyest way is live cd. As yast2 got error, is there an other way I can installed them (no.1,2,3)?
Using 11.4 I noticed a couple of messages I have not seen before:-
Code: <5>[ 14.485094] thinkpad_acpi: setting the hotkey mask to 0x00ffffff is likely not the best way to go about it <5>[ 14.485098] thinkpad_acpi: please consider using the driver defaults, and refer to up-to-date thinkpad-acpi documentation
My machine is a TP T42 but should I try and od anything about this message or just ignore it?
I installed squeeze on my eeepc 1015ped and downloaded the correct firmware-brcm80211 drivers but every time I scan for my network using iwconfig wlan0 scan or wicd, my computer completely freezes. I previously had a solid install running xmonad, and wicd was working like a charm (using the same broadcom driver) but i tinkered too much with it and decided to do a fresh install. I haven't quite run into a problem like this before.
I boot linux from a usb drive so I can carry my distro wherever I go - I've been doing it for quite some time now and it's always worked wonderfully. Problem: This morning my little cousin unplugged the computer WHILE I was booting into linux. Power loss has happened before, but with no ill effects. This time however, it's decided it won't boot. The screen clears, and just as GRUB is about to load, it freezes and the computer reboots over and over.
I booted to a LiveCD of Ubuntu to try and fsck the drive, but it won't mount the volume. I've worked with this install so long, and have customized it so much I **really** don't want to do a reinstall.. What can I do?
Every boot, I see screenfuls of staprun error messages fly by, e.g from /var/log/boot.msg:
Code: <notice -- Aug 31 23:39:53.511288000> service boot.startpreload startstaprun:send_a_relocation:336: ERROR: reloc name too long: .gnu.linkonce.r._ZN6AsicNII18ucode_class_caymanE23NITiling ModeLookupTableE: No such file or directory
could not get my sound to operate so i followed the intructions toMulti-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forumsnow i have a working audio and video player but my sound is depreciated to an almost inaudible levelwhen i try to open pulse i get connection failed:connection refusedand when i try alsa gui i get function snd_ctl_open failed for default:connection refusedcan anyone please correct this with me or for me.

I'm not sure where to post this but seeing as how, at least as far as I can tell, the problem is related to the wireless card or drivers, I figure this is as good a place as any. On to the problem, I recently install openSUSE 11.2 Gnome on my MSI Wind U100 netbook. Everything appeared to work fine right after install, wireless and everything. However, soon after that I began having issues where the screen would freeze and I would be unable to do anything until I force restarted the computer.
Now I believe the problem is related to my wireless as this problem occurs most frequently when I am either downloading a lot of data over wifi or fiddling with the network. I have had it freeze many times while switching wireless networks or while experiencing wireless issues such as an intermittent connection. I may be completely wrong in my above analysis of the problem, but I figured i need to post somewhere to get started. If anyone feels this post may get more help in another forum, please just let me know.
I have a 11.1 NFS server and several 11.1 NFS clients. If for some reason the server shuts down before the clients then the clients become almost frozen, particularly KDE is rendered useless even after cycling back to init 3 then init 5. I would like to make the clients immune to shutdowns on the server.
I'm having problems with streaming divx videos in Firefox 3.6 on openSUSE 11.2. Every time I try to load a divx video Firefox ends up freezing, ultimately leading to dialog box giving me the option to terminate Firefox. No matter what plugin I try to use it's the same problem. I've tried mplayerplug-in, which shows a gray background with the Mplayer logo where the video should be but it keeps buffering, once I press play it freezes. I tried the vlc browser plugin which doesn't seem to even recognize anything and I tried gecko-mplayer, which didn't even show the logo and buffering. I tired removing Firefox and all the plugins and tried installing them again to no avail.
I've started having problems with large file downloads. A download will start and after a while freeze. The downloads window reports the correct connection speed and gives an estimated time to complete, but it stays frozen. Small downloads, torrents and surfing are not affected. I can do everything else normally even when the download is frozen. I've checked with my ISP and everything with my equipment checks out.
i have installed openSUSE 11.2 on a dell dimension 2400. My Ethernet card wasn't working, so i am using a wireless interface, but it doesn't work either. It worked on a dell dimension 4400, but when it gets to the activate network my system freezes. Should i re-install my system, or should i post this under the hardware category.
I have troubels with internet, on different Linux x64 systems on my laptop(Lenovo ThinkPad sl510), but if I load WindowsPE all is OK ( what coud it be? where to search?There is an hardwere firewall/nat/gateway in my local network, it allows only connections to dst ports tcp 80 (http), udp 53 (dns) and no frags, no icmp, deny in and etc. But Windows Internet (the same Firefox) works fine , and under Linux sites doesn't loding full or "connetion timed out"...But if I have can start downloading any file it would be downloaded full (I have downloaded DVD iso of SuSe)Dns throu nslookup responce not evry time...Decreasing of MTU to 1372 didn't help (( Deactivating ip v6 also....What coud it be? What is different betwin Windows and Linux in DNS clients is any alternative dns client in SuSe? Is the trouble only in DNS?
I burnt the Ubuntu 9.10 ISO to CD and installed on a freshly nuked Dell 2350. It is pentium 4 at 1.8 MHZ with 512 RAM. Just a spare machine I have sitting there. Install went fine, restarted box, boot from hard drive. I get the little white Ubuntu symbol on a black screen and then a black screen with un-occupied white tool bars at top and bottom of screen and a functional mouse pointer, then nothing. It freezes there.
If I restart by holding the power switch in it occasionally shows multiple CPU overtemp messages and freezes with totally black screen. I can run the CD live and everything works like a champ. I'm going to like Ubuntu once I have this sorted out. If I boot from CD and choose the run from first hard drive option, everything loads and works fine. I was able to remove CD, update and save preferences, etc..
On one occasion, I was able to restart and boot from hard drive and it worked fine but usually it freezes at previously mentioned black screen with white bars top and bottom with mouse pointer. Please excuse my ignorance as I have very little knowledge of the inside workings of computers. I didn't even know about burning ISO's or changing boot orders until reading online. For what it's worth, the computer worked fine with no known hardware problems when it was running XP. It also is completely stock with no mods or added/replaced hardware.
I suspect this is an initial configuration bug. All firewall logs seem to be going to all three files. That causes a lot of clutter in the log files, and makes it difficult to see whether there are any serious problems being logged.
There is a computer in a home running opensuse into which I would like to login.
As usual, the computer is connected wirelessly to the home's router. I cannot control the router in order to direct incoming connections, say, on sshd port, to that computer.
Is there a way to log into that computer from outside?
The computer is fully under my control, as distinct from the home router. I know all relevant IP addresses. I can start any service on the computer, or start any command, or ask somebody to start a command while I am not at home.
