Slackware :: No FSCK When Booting 13.0 As Live DVD?

Mar 7, 2010

Well, I noticed this by accident while trying to use dash for the rc.d scripts. I messed up and forgot to link it to /bin, and as such, the system failed to boot properly and would not respond. I rebooted (forcefully), but this messed up the filesystem. I booted the sw64 install DVD and tried to mount it, and it would not mount.

I tried to run fsck on it, but it said that fsck.jfs in NOT available. Eventually I booted my old slamd64 12.1 DVD and it had fsck.jfs. Any reason why this rather useful program was removed ? Or is it a bug, or is my DVD messed up? I guess I should just keep around another live CD, I do keep knoppix, but it boots so slow and I don't understand it at all, it's so hard to do anything with it.

Slackware :: Live CD Not Booting On HP Pavilion 7905?

May 5, 2010

I'm not 100% sure as to where exactly to post this, but I've been wanting to set up a second computer for a while, and I finally put together a computer using the original motherboard and CPU from an HP Pavilion 7905, 1.6 GHz. I put in 512 MB of RAM, and I burned a Slackware DVD using my main computer. But when I boot up the DVD, I had an issue booting to the "normal" kernel, the hugesmp.s one. So, I tried the huge.s kernel, and it's still not working for me. I got the following output out of it when it crashed // froze:

Debian :: Automatically Continue Booting After Fsck Fails?

Dec 30, 2010

I've just migrated to Debian from Ubuntu on my server. So my first post here. I've had some problems and questions when installing and configuring Debian, now everything seems very smooth, but still I can't find answer to one question. My machine is headless and I allways use SSH to it. I have several partitions on machine so if one of them fails on booting time with fsck, I need to press CTRL+D combination to continue. In that case I need to go to the machine with monitor and keyboard and press that combination. Is there any way to automatically continue for example after 30 seconds ? Then I could log in to the system and check log files what is wrong. How can I do that ?

Ubuntu :: Hung Up Restarting After An Update - Running Fsck Off Live CD

Dec 23, 2010

My computer got hung up restarting after an update yesterday so I switched it off and back on, which led to the error message "No init found. Try passing init= bootrag", looking that up I found a thread that recommended running fsck to fix the errors.

I first went to disk utility and did the check filesystem and repair button but that just had a pop-up that said "File system is NOT clean." So I went and tried fsck on the drive which gave me the error message "fsck.ext4: Device or resource busy while trying to open /dev/sda1 Filesystem mounted or opened exclusively by another program?"

Figuring this may have been caused by the disk utility I restarted and tried fsck again without opening any other program, and I still get the same error message. What is causing this? Swap? What can I do to get fsck running to fix the original problem?

Slackware :: Fsck And Root File System ?

Sep 22, 2010

I would like to know if there is a way to do an unattended check on the root file system on my servers, *and* send emails in case of errors.

I know you can schedule a root file system fsck during boot time - but the root file system will be mounted read-only - so if fsck finds any problems - it can't email away a warning, or write the result to a file - or can it?

Essentially I would like my servers to do a self-check of the root file system periodically - and to email me if it fails. I just can't think of a way to get it done.

Debian :: How To Continue Booting Debian After Fsck Is Failed?

Dec 31, 2010

I have bunch of partitions on my Debian server installation, so I was experimenting with partitions and saw that is one partition fails fsck on booting time, system waits for root password or CTRL+D key combination. The problem is that my Debian machine is headless and I use only SSH to it. So if fsck fails, I can't to login to SSH (off course, because it is not loaded at this time). So I need to go with monitor and keyboard to machine and press CTRL+D.One option is to disable disk checking at startup by changing fstab file. I don't like this option. Is there any possibility to auto continue booting Debian machine ?

Slackware :: Lilo Not Booting Slackware Correctly - Errors Inside?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm fairly new to Linux so I'm going to need a step-by-step guide to get me out of this rut. The install of Linux was fine but when I booted up I got this error. VFS: Cannot open root device "302" or unknown-block (3,2) append a correct "root=" boot option;here are the available partitions;

0800 78150744 sda driver:sd
0801 47428608 sda1 <-- this is my Windows partition
0802 30719552 sda2 <-- this is my Linux partition
0b00 1048575 sr0 driver:sr
0b01 1048575 sr1 driver:sr

Kernel panic - not syncing:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block (3,2) I guessed from reading this error Lilo isn't pointing to the right partition to boot from? How will I fix this? I read another thread about boot problems on these forums and a guy said to do this:

#mkdir /slacktemp
#mount /dev/device /slacktemp
#chroot /slacktemp
#cd /slacktemp/etc <-- for me it told me that doesn't exist
#vi lilo.conf <-- couldn't do nothing and was frozen
#lilo -v -t -b /dev/device
#lilo -v -b /dev/device

The above solution did not work for me. Can anyone shed a light on a Linux rookie?

General :: Booting Live CD From USB?

Sep 4, 2011

I'm using the Ultimate Boot CD, and I've added a bunch of customized .iso's to it. I can boot into those .iso files fine, but most of them are mini-versions of Linux that are designed to run off of a CD. When they try to boot, they try to run off the CD (which obviously isn't there since they're on a USB drive) and then either freeze, or don't work in some other way.

Is there any way to edit the .iso files to tell them they're booting off of a USB drive? I'm assuming there'd be something somewhere in the boot configuration files to do this. Where would that be? I would think it'd be different for different ones, but are there some places that are standard for live CDs? What would I have to change? EDIT: Just to make exactly what I'm asking clear...I know there's stuff all over the place on how to boot a .iso from USB. That's not the problem, I can already do that. What I'm wondering is how to make the OS stored in the .iso realize that it's booting from USB and not CD?

Ubuntu :: Live CD And USB Not Booting Up?

Dec 25, 2010

I am on my new HP envy 14, and I have both a USB drive and a Live CD with the latest version of 64 bit ubuntu.

When I run the Live CD, it takes me to a purple screen with a keyboard and person symbol at the bottom, and after a minute it opens up a black window that looks like a command prompt, and then the screen goes black.

When I try to run the USB, either selecting the "install" option or the "run from USB option", it goes through the boot processes like everything is working, and then the screen goes black.

The same thing happened on my main computer with a 32 bit live CD.

This is my first attempt at using Fedora (the only other distro i've used is Ubuntu), and I'm having trouble booting from a USB device created using the LiveUSB Creator utility, containing the Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop disc image. After selecting my USB device from the startup menu, I see a black screen with the following information:

Graphics: nVidia GeForce GT 240

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Live CD Not Booting?

Jul 2, 2011

I am not too new to the Linux scene, I mainly use CentOS on a day to day basis on my server, however, I would like to start using Ubuntu on a full time basis, I am sick of how slow Win7 can be and all of the bulk. Sooo, I downloading ubuntu, burned it, verified it, y'know, the usual.Backed up everything I needed and restarted pc. The purple splash screen came up and started to load. After about 3 minutes I see a very distorted version of my Win7 desktop! I am then unable to Ctrl+Alt+F1 as my keyboard becomes unresponsive. I have disabled my graphics card (Nvidia 240 GT (I think)) and just used the on board Intel chipset but still this happens. What is going on? I am desperate to use it and I am finding this really frustrating.Also I did manage to ctrl alt f1 at one point and I tried to restart gdm but it errored out on me

I am able to boot into windows just fine. When I select Linux it boots into linux bios data check successful. lots of stuff goes on the screen the normal linux boot stuff. and then it goes to the next screen and stays blank

Nothing happens and even the hard disk light is not blinking.By the way the HDD is Western Digital.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Not Booting \ Reinstall Grub From A Live CD?

Mar 21, 2011

While trying to boot ubuntu, I noticed that it was taking a long time. A lot longer than usual, in fact.I then forced a restart on my computer, and noticed that Grub looked different - the resolution was weird.I then tried again to boot ubuntu, and got the following messages:vga=792 is deprecated. Use set gfxpayload=1024x768x24,1024x768 before linux command.mount: mounting /proc/ on /root/proc failed: Input/Output error.And then the computer seems to stay idle forever.Recovery mode is also not useful: I can only see some periodic messages about a failed command: READ FPDMA QUEUED.

However, I also noticed that grub showed something before it allowed me to choose which OS I would like to boot (Im running a dualboot configuration with Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7).I managed to get it:error: hd0, msdos6 out of diskerror: no suitable mode foundConsidering that I have no trouble booting into Win 7, and that I can actually access my Ext4 partition from there, Im trying to reinstall Grub from a Live CD.Heres the output of fdisk -l :ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes

Networking :: NIC Detects When Booting Live But Not After Install?

Jan 19, 2009

I am using a laptop with a realtek8139 integrated adapter. When I boot the live cd (Puppy), I go to configure the internet connection, and shows the module for the card has automatically loaded, and I just set it to DHCP and that is all. After installing the os, however, I go to configure the connection, and it tells me that no module has been loaded, so I should manually choose from the list. When I do, it tells me that it failed to load. I have also tried allowing it to probe by loading every possible driver, to no avail. I have reinstalled the os twice, and it does not recognize the adapter, but when I boot live, it works fine. Any reason why it would do this?

General :: Cannot Mount CDROM When Booting From Live CD HP DV6?

Dec 3, 2010

I'm trying to get back into Linux after a few years off.

I have tried booting from a Live CD using Flash Linux and Damn Small Linux.

Flash Linux reports unable to mount CDROM and then provides a command line - I assume I have the kernel, a shell and little else at this point? Can I mount the CD and continue?

DSL seems to do something similar but freezes with a blank screen. I have the option of entering parameters prior to booting with DSL (but not with Flash) I have tried the parameter which copies the CD to RAM and then boots without success.

I plan on installing Debian to my HD in the near future but felt like playing around with Live CDs prior to this in order to get reacquainted.

I have googled this issue and it seems there are other noobs out there with the same model of PC (HP DV6) who are having similar problems but I could not find a solution.

As an aside - this is the kind of issue that IMO, still prevents Linux from becoming a mainstream OS.
