Ubuntu :: Allow Auto-log Off Feature Either An Extended Inactivity Time Or To Disable Inactivity-logouts

Oct 18, 2010

I would like to allow the auto-log off feature either an extended inactivity time or to disable inactivity-logouts.

I use my PC strictly at home, and have no security issues. I've set my username to no-password so that I just click [twice] to log back on. But I must do that to see the screen display - say to see what's playing on Pandora.

Can I set the auto-logout-time somewhere or disable the function?

Debian Hardware :: Laptop Hard Drive Spindown Time Is Too Short?

Apr 13, 2010

This isn't a problem with the 2.6.26 kernel that I have been using, but it is with newer ones. I want to upgrade to a backports kernel, because there has been a REALLY long standing 2.6.26 bug with cpu frequency governors and suspending that is never going to get fixed.

Basically, with the 2.6.30 backports kernel, the hard drive spindown time is way too short. I'd like it to spin down after a minute or two of inactivity, but it is spinning down after only 5-10 seconds. Is there any way to fix this? edit: Now that I think about it, this is also a problem on another laptop that runs squeeze.

Debian :: Check If Mainboard Supports SATA-I Or SATA-II?

My motherboard supports SATA but I do not know which version: SATA-I or SATA-II. I want to buy a SSD so it would be pointless to buy a fast SSD if my motherboard only suports SATA-I

Debian Multimedia :: System Freeze After Long Time Inactivity

Feb 16, 2015

I made a fresh installation of Debian.

Code: Select all[VOSTRO200@root]#uname --all
Linux VOSTRO200 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.65-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I changed to the kde desktop environment. I logged in as a normal user, and left the computer running for a few hours. when I came back the screen was turned off and the system does not respond to mouse movement, pressing the keyboard, or any combination thereof. I tried

Code: Select allCtr+Alt+F1,
CapsLock

First time i touched keyboard the led of numlock turned off, and never back. Blanking the screen itself does not cause a system crash, this occurs after several hours of inactivity.

Ubuntu :: SATA II / Error "ata4: Limiting SATA Link Speed To 1.5 Gbps" - Allowing The SSD To Run At SATA II Speeds?

May 1, 2011

I keep getting this error in my log viewer every 2 seconds: Code: ata4: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps I have a dual boot SSD and I have run many SMART tests in windows and linux, (using smartmon tools and the disk utility) and the reports are all 100% healthy..... My research shows that this error represents one of the following:

1. Problem with SATA controller
2. Changing BIOS to allow SATA
3. Changing SATA mode to PATA or AHCI
4. Replacing the SATA cable
5. Allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds, i.e. 3 Gbps

- Does anyone know how to try number 5, i.e. allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds? I am lost here and this problem has caused my machine to crash twice when watching a movie in linux/ ubuntu. (It is worth noting that the crashes have only occurred in linux and I have never had an issue in windows, so it does seem to be a linux setting somewhere, hence why I think it is a "allowing SATA II to run at correct speeds issue")

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Spindown In Raid Array?

I'm not able to spin down my harddisks in raid array. I did hdparm -S 240 /dev/sdb and the same for the second hdd. Smaller values like 2 minutes work. I don't have log files on this disks. How can I determine, which processes are accessing these disks? I have apache and samba running. Nobody is accessing the server.

Fedora Hardware :: Set Disk Spindown Time (not Hackish Way)?

Aug 31, 2010

I have a rather strange issue and maybe someone else will clear that up for me.I have an external USB disk (i am using Fedora 13 with KDE) [LG My Netbook Friend (320GB) (HXD5U32GLS)] which doesn't spin down even when not mounted and not in use. While i can turn it off with sdparm i would rather use hal (haven't seen anythin in any file in /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/ that would relate to spindown time), i have looked at some forums but it is always in some rather weird hackish way like setting some specific device rules in cron.From what i gathered that udev just "points" to hal rules regarding rfkill and all the hardware. Now the question is what command would i have to add to hal's file (i guess i should copy it first to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ right?) to enable that specific disk to spindown after let's say 30 minutes of being idle?

Ubuntu :: SATA Libata Verses Silicom Images SATA Module

Jun 21, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04, and happened to have an Silicom Images PCXpress card plugged in, and it kindly added the sil_sata module.This is fine for this chip set.I think that my earlier installation of Ubuntu 9.04 used Libata, which does support NCQ and also has good legacy support for the Intel Intel ICH7 chipset I have inside my Sony Vaio SZ notebook. Also, libata also support Silicon Image chipsets as far as I can tell from URL...I wish to remove the Silicom Images SATA modules and replace this with libata and then test the performance between the two device drivers.

Debian :: SATA DVD Drive Not Detected During Lenny Install?

Nov 17, 2010

I am trying to install Debian 5.0 "Lenny" on a PC with a very new hardware config (i3 processor, DDR3 RAM,LG SATA DVD drive, and Seagate SATA HDD). During the hardware detection phase of installation, I get a message saying the driver for my CD drive is not known, and asking me to select one manually. The options I get are only 'devcdrom', which does not work, and my installation cannot proceed.

I tried the following:

1. I read in a similar query that to use SATA DVD drives, I will have to set some boot options, so tried entering install libatapi_enabled=1 as an install option. This showed 'unknown parameter' error followed by same problem.

2. My Intel m/b BIOS has an option to set the DVD drive to "Native" or "Legacy", default is Native. I also tried changing this to "Legacy". Still same problem.

3. Read that I have to point to different drivers, but don't know how to do this during the installation.

Debian Hardware :: Sata-controller: Find Out Which One Build In Pc?

Red Hat :: Su Hangs On Exit After Inactivity

Mar 25, 2010

We have two types of servers RHEL5 and RHEL4 as well as Fedora 11 desktops.

After a period of inactivity, trying to exit from "su - <username>" causes the system to hang for about 10 minutes. It takes that long before the prompt comes back. Here are a few items that noticed as I have tried to trouble shoot this problem. The prompt always comes back if you wait long enough It only happens on RHEL 5. RHEL4 and Fedora 11 are unaffected It does not appear to matter what other software is running. Some boxes have databases, others do not It happens to boxes in run level 3 as well as boxes in run level 5 It does not matter if logging in from the console (tty) or from ssh (pts). Both types of logins produce the same result.

It does not matter if the account is an LDAP or a local account. It takes between 30 min and 1 hour of inactivity before the problem occurs Other sessions on the box are completely unaffected. Once hung, I can still log in with a different session without a problem top shows no load while session is hung there are no messages in /var/log/messages, /var/log/secure, /var/log/audit/audit.log or in dmesg if a session is killed, finger shows that it is still logged in a putty log shows that the server is still sending "keep alives" to putty while the session is hung Only su is affected. There is no problem logging out of the box from the initial login account. what I can try in order to trouble shoot this?

Debian :: Internal SATA Disk Slower When Running On Battery?

I have Etch running in my laptop. I found that if the laptop is only running on battery, the disk seems to performs slower than if I running on a power adapter. How do I possibly check the setting and fix it?

I'm the only user on the system most of the time and I keep it as minimal as possible so it's not other services and programs keeping the disk busy.

Debian :: SATA Raid, /home Partition Mounting Error?

Nov 9, 2010

I've installed debian squeezy recently and for some reason I have problems with mounting /home partition during startup.

There's an error:Mounting local filesystems...mount: special device /dev/mapper/isw_bbfedcffgi_Volume0p6 does not exist. failed

I've tried using fsck - no result the file system is healthy, I've tried formatting it once again (fresh copy, no user data) and it's not working. What is more mounting the partition manually goes well - I can read the data and write to it. All other partitions are ok.

I have no idea what's going on and why mounting /home fails. I've written this post on Polish debian users forum, but no response - only to give more info, so I'll put it here also:

ls -al /dev/mapper

crw------- 1 root root 10, 59 Nov 9 19:34 control

Debian :: Restore User Directory After Trying To Mount A SATA Drive

Jan 21, 2011

This is on Debian Lenny 5.0.7 with a LXDE desktop. Using Root Terminal I have just been trying to mount a SATA drive NTFS file system using the command: mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /dev/

unfortunately the /sdb1 should of been 'sdc1', I think, and what's happened is that my username and files have been moved somewhere else. PCMan File manager has ceased to work and open applications have ceased to be able to save files.

How do I discover where they went, and how do I restore them back to the original place of debian:/home/username/ ?

I'm about 8 hours in to learning Linux/Debian and desperately trying leave behind about 15 years of Windows use for something better. I'm used to troubleshooting electronics/hardware/all manner of things but the syntax here is, at the moment, a slippery slope.

Debian :: Turn Num Lock On

Apr 16, 2015

I am using Debian 7.8.0 (64-bit). I don't know what desktop environment I am using but it is the one that gets installed by default.

I have installed numlockx. Works fine in terms of turning Num Lock on automatically before the login screen. However, once logged in, Num Lock is automatically turned off. Is there a setting in Debian that I am missing so that Num Lock stays on all the time?

PS: Yes, I've turned on the Num Lock option in the BIOS!
