Whenever I am in firefox and have pictures open in the browser and move the mouse to the other 19" monitor it crashes, not everytime but often enough to be annoying. Sometimes when it crashes the screen goes blank and I wind up at the login screen, other times it just goes blank and stays blank.
This is a triple-monitor setup with two video cards, where the mouse pointer gets "stuck" if it tries to cross from one video card to the next one. It worked correctly in openSUSE 11.2 and doesn't work in openSUSE 11.3 with the same xorg.conf. This is a 64-bit openSUSE 11.3 with xorg 7.5-11.3 (the openSUSE prepackaged version). I've already tried NVidia drivers 256.53-16.1 (the openSUSE NVidia repository version) and 260.19.12 (the latest off of the NVidia website).
This is the same xorg.conf that I used successfully in openSUSE 11.2. I tried a new automatically generated xorg.conf using nvidia-settings and it had the same problem. This forum won't let me upload the relevant files, but here: [URL] is a tar-ball with my xorg.conf, Xorg.*.log, /var/log/messages, and the NVidia debugging output.
I have an Asus eee901 netbook and it's got an Intel 945 graphics card. If I boot it up, log in, attach an external monitor and then open the Display Settings dialog the screen goes black and the laptop appears to crash. Leaving it for a minute or two does nothing.
However, if I boot up with the external monitor attached then I can open the Display Settings dialog and configure both screens.
This is quite annoying as I've got to reboot if I want to connect an external monitor.
Additionally, if booted with the monitor attached and I choose a configuration where the width of the combined screens is greater than 2048, the screens go black and the same lock up appears to occur. Could it be that the Display Settings dialog isn't checking for the maximum display width the driver supports and is then crashing in both scenarios?
Last friday I went home from work and just turned off my monitor, as a program I had written needed to run a durability test over the weekend. Unfortunately it seems that the moment I turned off my monitor, Linux just froze, quite evidently as it said this morning that the time was still Friday 17:13.
From the syslog I got the following on that time:
What this means and what I can do? It's not the first time it crashes as soon as I turn my monitor off.
I am facing problem with the fresh installation of Fedora 11. (I have moved from Fedora 9). When I try to view videos on ..... or use the Cheese Webcam Booth, I get blurred lines on the screen and I am unable to see any video or pic.
Also I noticed that the when i go to System > Preferences>Display, it shows me UNKOWN MONIOR.
However, if I got to System>Administration>Display and enter the su password, it shows me correct monitor and the graphics driver.
I am not sure if my original is related to the Unknown Monitor.
I also tried to install Nvidia driver but it crashed the xserver and I had remove the driver.
My Monitor is LG 700E and Graphics card is from intel. as I am not able watch any video.
I am having problems getting my external monitor to work. When I plug in the monitor, both the laptop screen and the external monitor go black. When I unplug the monitor, the laptop screen works again. When I startup with the external monitor plugged in, neither screen works or teh computer hangs or something.
I have had the external monitor going on a couple of occasions. I did manage to configure my monitors through System Settings > Display. I turned off the laptop monitor as I just want to use the external. But after rebooting, things didn't work.
I have an external monitor connected to my laptop (extended display). I always drag the Totem player from the laptop screen to external monitor to watch video files. I wonder, if the Totem player can be set to open in the external monitor automatically, everytime I open it?
My software and hardware information are as follows. I have Fedora 12 and KDE 4.4.5 installed on a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop. I believe it's a 64 bit processor; it's an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. The external monitor is a Dell as well.
My problem is that my system does not seem to be detecting an external monitor that I have connected. Everything else is working just fine; however, I would like to have the option of attaching an external monitor. When I plug the external monitor into the laptop, the external monitor remains black and appears to be in power save mode. The results of xrandr -q (with or without the external monitor attached: it doesn't appear to change) are as follows.
How can I get my laptop to recognize that the external monitor is even connected? Let me know if I can be more specific or provide additional details.
I installed openoffice 3.0 from openoffice site (www.openoffice.org) in my Fedora Core 6 OS computer. However, while doing that I might have made some mistakes. I removed openoffice 2.4 and 2.0 by using openoffice uninstall. In fact, couple of occasions, I have uninstalled and again fresh installed openoffice 3.0 when I noticed that moment I pressed any key, the program crashes. I have by mistaken the script ooffice, thinking that it would automatically install a new one. But there is no ooffice. I have to call soffice for that.
I'm using BSNL(India) EVDO service. I got ZTE dialer for Fedora and it works fine. But it has started causing error which was not seen when I installed system freshly. It's just been a week and whenever I disconnect ppp interface, xmessage window open and I see error message.
Every since updating to kde 4.3, I have been experiencing frequent X crashes (1-2 times a day) whenever compositing is turned on (nvidia card). I was hoping that kde 4.3.1 would fix the issue for me, but no luck. So, I'd like to figure out what the nature of the problem is so that I can report it to the appropriate (ahem) authorities, but am not exactly sure how to dig up any useful information. The Xorg log didn't *seem* to have anything particularly informative to say about it (just a few lines about nvidia_drv.so).
I have installed Fedora 12 as a clean installl, everything worked perfect. But lately either after installing an update or making some parameter changes, while restarting my system it just comes up with lots of error messages and crashes. I have to press the switch off button to shutdown. I don't know from where to get that error message to post here
Last week I performed an update on my laptop running Fedora 14 with "yum update".
The first problem was that while updating, my machine was frozen and after a had reboot I got a kernel panic (#$%*) After adding the new kernel manually that was fixed but after rebooting, I couldn't start my mailer (Evolution) any more.
When I start evolution while running KDE I get this message (tail var/log/messages): Feb 21 18:03:10 BEL001 NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): supplicant connection state: completed -> group handshake Feb 21 18:03:10 BEL001 NetworkManager: <info> (wlan0): supplicant connection state: group handshake -> completed
How can I get evolution back to work again on my machine?
PS.After rebooting the login screen has changed and now I can't change anymore to using gnome. It only gives the options to login to KDE or 'custom'. How can I change custom to Gnome?
I've recently moved from Ubuntu (after moving from Gentoo and Arch) to Fedora 15 and am experiencing some crashing.
What happens is after a few hours or not particularly hard usage (web browser, a couple of terminals, maybe having run a few Ant scripts etc) all the fans seem to go into serious overdrive. I can't move the mouse and the system doesn't respond to any keyboard input. After about five minutes of this, the fans slow down but the system remains unresponsive. I've left it for a further 30 minutes, still nothing so I have to do a hard reset.
My hardware is a stock laptop Compal IFL90. Besides the standard installed software, the only other things I've installed are;
- Sun JDK (and Eclipse, but not running during crash) - Pogo Plug software (pogoplugfs which is started on login) - Cryptkeeper for my encfs stuff - Opera
Can anyone point me to a possible fix, or let me know what other information is needed to try and get more complete support? It's not to much of a problem at the moment, but when I start using my laptop more frequently, having to power cycle every few hours is going to make is to difficult to use.
I'm running fedora 11 and cisco version 4.8.01 (0640). When I connect to my work, and get authenticated, the system freezes completely. In searching it looks like at one point updating the kernel to a new version resolved this, at least for the 64bit implementation. I'm running 32bit and I'm on kernel kernel-PAE-220.127.116.11-64.fc11.i686 which is a newer version then what was listed in the other thread.
We have netlink kernel module to send data to user space application . But Fedora 12 is crashing as soon as netlink kernel module is inserted. The netlink kernel module is working on Fedora 6 / Red Hat / Ubuntu linux. It is found that Fedora 12 is getting crash when "netlink_kernel_create" function is called.
Having VLC crash upon opening? I would think that they would have it fixed by now & just trying to follow up. I tried to do a bug report but couldn't get it to go for whatever reason (at least I don't THINK it took).
- Nautilus open in browser mode (the default)?- I click the eject symbol to unmount a usb stick in the side pane.- The annoying red exclamation police light looking thing pops up telling me that nautilus crashed.- Not only is the usb stick unmounted, but the device file also disapears (e.g. no longer listed by fdisk).- This problem does NOT occur when I use other methods to unmount (e.g. umount on command line, or right-click on desktop icon and select eject action), only when I click the eject symbol in the nautilus side pane
