Ubuntu :: 10.04 Taking To The Login Console And Not Graphical Login?

May 1, 2010

I just installed 10.04, and its taking me to the console login, rather than the graphical login. When I tried the live cd, the graphical environment was good. But after installation, I dont get the graphical login , so that I can get into the desktop.

I have a ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 card on ThinkPad T60. Everything was working on 8.10, and I decided to install 10.04 and now it doesnt work.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Booting Into Console

Mar 9, 2011

Firstly I'm a complete newbie to Linux so be gentle ! Lots of unfamilar terms being used in these forums - reminds me of my windows experience 20 years ago !!
A friend gave me a copy of Ubuntu 10.10 so I've tried loading it onto an old Compaq Nx9005 Laptop yesterday. The installation seemed to progress OK, I completed all the information prompted for and then tried a reboot- but here's the problem:

It boots into the console but before the login request there are 2 lines:-

19.840039 AC'97 1access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer.
19.840228 ali mixer 1 creating error.

Anyway after trying to login with user name and password it just awaits me to input a command.

Now reading through other posts I tried a Sudo startX command, this produced a large number of additional lines:

Picking out what I think might be helpful in resolving the problem:

X.Org X Server 1.9.0
Build Operating system : Linux 2.6.24-27-server i686 Ubuntu

(EE) Vesa: Kernal modesetting driver in use, refusing to load
(EE) No devices detected

Fatal server error:
No screens found

On the face of it it looks like it could possible be something to do with video drivers and/or sound drivers but just my own very limited assessment. I'm hoping that someone on this forum can come up with a reason and more importantly a solution.!

On another similar problem thread someone suggested that they might be at Run level 2 or 3 instead of run level 5 (Whatever that means!!!!).. well after entering the command run -r it tells me that I'm at level 2 but I can't change that to run level 5 by entering sudo telinit 5 - it just resorts to a command prompt

Ubuntu :: Slim Login Manager Preventing Computer From Booting To Login Screen

Aug 4, 2011

yesterday i installed slim login manager on my computer (eee pc 1018p, ubuntu 11.04), and now it cannot get passed the ubuntu loading screen (with orange dots underneath) when booting. i tried booting into recovery mode and that didn't work either. i also left the computer trying to boot overnight and that didn't work.
basically, during this loading screen that should eventually bring you to the login screen, i can alt+tab to see the progress of the load. the progress is stuck on

Is there anything I can do from grub to remove slim?or, is there any way I can access my ubuntu partition and save all my files?

Red Hat :: Unable To Login From Console F1 To F6. But Able To Login Into GUI In F7?

Apr 21, 2010

I am using rhel 5.3. I am using windows 2003 server 32-bit (the processor is 64 bit. AMD athlon x2). I have installed vmware and installed rhel5.3 64 bit on top of it. Now i am able to login as root from GUI mode (f7 console), but unable to login in text console from f1 to f6. I checked the /etc/securetty. But there was nothing unusual there. I think udev is causing this problem, since google said so. I cant find where the udev.rules file is located that google searches are taking about. How do i enable root login in f1-6 console.

Ubuntu Installation :: Not Booting Automatically?

Nov 10, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on my mini-pc homeserver. Installation goes fine, but when I reboot it says "no boot device found". I checked the bios, it's set to boot from hdd, so that should be fine. When I press F10 during post, I can enter the boot menu, where only my hdd is listed. When I press enter it boots just fine. I tried using 1 partition only, tried multiple partitions, but it makes no difference. I didn't change anything to the bootloader configurations during install, just used standard settings, which is install bootloader to sda/hda

General :: Automation - Good Console-based Program To Automatically Manage Music Collection?

May 31, 2011

I like the convenience of having a music player that manages the placement of my music files based on the tags of the files, sorting into a root music folder with Artist/Album/01 - Track Title.mp3 sort of hierarchy. Previously, I was using Banshee for this feature, as even most of the other gui music players don't have this library management feature. Now, I've been trying to use console-based applications, and I have been using mpd + ncmpcpp fairly successfully. When I download new music, it is downloaded to a specific folder, and that's not part of my music collection. My previous workflow would be to open a gui filemanager at the downloaded folder, and drag and drop those songs onto banshee, which would then make a copy of those files in my library hierarchy. Currently, I'm doing the same thing, using Banshee only as a sort of import program, then closing it and updating my mpd database, and there we go.

If at all possible, I'd like to automate this to something where I can define a watch folder, and when some magical program sees new music in said watch folder, it identifies the correct place for the files to be copied into my heirarchy, renaming folders and files to the correct format. I know I've written a lot describing, but I don't actually think this too uncommon a task, and I'm wondering if anyone has a solution for my problem.

Debian Configuration :: Console Dims On Booting And Stays Dark

Oct 25, 2015

Since moving my debian server over to a Gigabyte H97N-WIFI motherboard the console dims on booting and generally stays dark. Strangely the screen the brightens up if I go to an emergency shell, but if the boot runs successfully I don't see the resulting login prompts. Also, during the boot process the messages to the console are too dark to see.

I've tried the i915.invert_brightness=1 fix mentioned here [URL].... but that seems to have no effect. I'm assuming that this has something to do with moving to intel graphics as my previous hardware had a radeon graphics card and didn't display this problem.

CentOS 5 :: Booting Into GUI Automatically?

Sep 21, 2010

Since I installed Centos in Text mode it automatically boots into terminal instead of X. I merely have to type "startx' and the gui loads without a problem. Is there a simple way to automate this so that I boot directly into the gui?

(BTW, I checked many of the posts about the GUI but most dealt with startx not working or with modifying VNC Server - that wiki seems like overkill in my case.)

Debian Installation :: Manually Booting From GRUB Console Into Crypt -> LVM -> Root

Feb 21, 2015

I'm trying to manually boot (from the GRUB console) into a system set up as follows: crypt partition -> LVM -> root LV, and I'm having some trouble figuring out how to do this from the GRUB console.

I have successfully manually booted a system which is set up as just LVM -> VG -> root LV. All I have to do is load the LVM module. In GRUB, that partition shows up as (hd0,gpt5). Once I load the GRUB LVM module, I can see the logical volume within the LVM as well. (My volume group name is "caesar", and the single logical volume is named "root".)

Code: Select allgrub> ls
... (hd0,gpt5) ...
grub> insmod lvm
grub> ls
... (lvm/caesar-root) ...

It's fairly simple to manually boot:

Code: Select allgrub> set root=(lvm/caesar-root)
grub> linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/mapper/caesar-root
grub> initrd /initrd.img
grub> boot

Where I am having difficulty is in trying to insert crypt before LVM. I can set up such a scheme, and put a minimal installation on it, without issues. It's booting into it upon reboot that I can't figure out. Once I load the GRUB crypto, cryptodisk and luks modules, I can mount the crypto partition:

Code: Select allgrub> ls
... (hd0,gpt5) ...
grub> insmod crypto
grub> insmod cryptodisk
grub> insmod luks
grub> cryptomount (hd0,gpt5)

Attempting to decrypt master key...
Enter passphrase for hd0,gpt5 (<long hex string here>): <type my password>
Slot 0 opened
grub> ls
... (crypto0) ...

At this point, GRUB sees the crypto partition as (crypto0). But the GRUB LVM module doesn't see "inside" of the crypto partition, so I don't see the root logical volume within the LVM listed; all I see is (crypto0).

Code: Select allgrub> insmod lvm
grub> ls
... (crypt0) ...

Setting it as root doesn't work:

Code: Select allgrub> set root=(crypto0)
grub> ls /
error: disk `crypto0' not found.

So, How do I get GRUB to "see" LVM inside the crypto partition?

Ubuntu :: Can't Login In GUI After Console Rebooting

May 4, 2011

I"ve started using Ubuntu 11.04 with my Intel iMac. Today I was playing EDuke32 on Ubuntu then the game got freezed, so I tried Ctrl+Alt+F1 and it worked. I just logged in the console and typed;

sudo reboot

This actually didn't work, so;

/usr/bin/sudo /sbin/reboot

This worked.

After rebooting, I tried log in with the GUI login screen. However I just cannot login. After I input my password and press enter, login screen goes black out and comes back to the login screen. I also tried to log in from console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), and it worked. I can log in.

Sep 15, 2010

I am using kubuntu 10.04..i am a new guy here..

i unfortunately removed all my files from /home folder..

rm -rf ~ /. picasa / (ya..i know..)

As some of the files were really important i tried recovering data using foremost..i used the command

foremost -i /dev/sda1 -o /mnt/foremost

After execution of this command it prompted a process..it was downloading something..and i left the computer for an hour or so..when i return there was nothing on screen..so i reloaded the system..And after that when i try to login i get the error

"xsession: warning: unable to write to /tmp; xsession may exit with an error"..so when i googled for it i found its because there is no memmory in my /root ..so i tried login via console (tried ctrl+alt+f1..after the login screen appears..when i type ctrl+alt+f1 i get a black screen)..but nothings happening...

but the problem is when i type (ctrl+alt+f1) i am getting a black screen only...and just a cursor blinking..nothing else..ctrl+alt+f1-f6 give me the same result..and when i try (ctrl+alt+f7) it goes back to the screen with the error....how can i login to console now...

CentOS 5 :: Xen Kernel Not Booting Automatically

Feb 11, 2010

1st referring to: [URL]. I have no paid support channel at Redhat as I am using an evaluation copy. I use a pretty fresh installed RHEL 5.4, which should be very similar to CentOS. After the basic installation I installed xen and xen-kernel via yum with no errors. I can manually select the xen-kernel at boot time. But after booting the normal kernel shows up.

[root@noname boot]# uname -r
My /boot/grub/menu.lst looks like:
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-164.11.1.el5xen)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-164.11.1.el5
module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.11.1.el5xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
module /initrd-2.6.18-164.11.1.el5xen.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-164.11.1.el5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.11.1.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-164.11.1.el5.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-164.el5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-164.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup01/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.18-164.el5.img

I can't see anything wrong and I did not change/try anything. My machine has a intel core 2 quad q6600 cpu, wihich should be capable of virtualization. It's not a problem of default=1 or default=0, because I selected the xen-kernel manually in the grub menu. Btw: I changed the menu.lst with default=0. Then the system is repeatedly booting; last visible message 'starting udev'.

Ubuntu :: Missing Login Prompt In Console Mode?

Feb 1, 2010

After upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 I no longer get a login prompt when switching to console mode e.g. (CTRL+ALT)-F1. Instead i just get blinking cursor in the top left corner. Key strokes are printed the screen but otherwise nothing happens. I can switch back and forth between X and the console normally.

Where are the consoles configured, and is there a corresponding log somewhere i can check? Has anyone had similars problem?

My system is an old Amilo Pro laptop with a VIA 800 compatible chip-set.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 (Tty1) Console Login Prompt At Boot

Nov 20, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my 32gb flash drive. Just one large partition for the OS and about a gig for swap. Worked fine. Booted to USB on two computers and a laptop at home. Fine. Figured I'd try it on a work pc for the sake of testing a random computer. Well I stick the drive in, boot up, select usb from the boot menu and bam Ubuntu starts loading. I look away, it's cool ubuntu's loading. Well I turn back and it's a black screen. It's "<username>@whatever login:" or something close.

I use the username and password I created during installation and what I used to login to the computer like fifty million times while booted into Ubuntu. Well, invalid login. The first time I installed this OS on this drive I updated it through the update manager and rebooted. Next thing I know I type in my username and password, hit enter, and bam black screen, some stuff, then im asked to login again. Now after this next iteration I am faced with yet another faulty login screen. What is up with this OS?

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 ?

Fedora :: Get The Console From Login Screen?

Jan 9, 2010

New clean install of Fedora 12 (my worst Linux experience so far, should have sticked with Fedora 9, it was old but it was stable, unlike this half-backed... whatever it is). Anyway, to the matter at hand (one of the many):How do I switch to the console from the graphical login screen? CTRL+ALT+Fn doesn't work, CTRL+ALT+Backspace doesn't kill X, it's a NIS machine with only root as local account

OpenSUSE :: Recover From Console Login?

Feb 18, 2011

I'm trying to debug a game with gdb. The game runs in fullscreen and causes a segmentation fault and then gives control back to gdb. However, since the game is in fullscreen, the gdb session can't be viewed. So, at this point I did CTRL-ALT-F6 which blanks the screen and gives me a console to login with. I do this and determine the PID of the game process and kill it. This should remove the x-window the game was using and leave the gdb session on my gnome-terminal. I then exit the console login, which leaves me at a console login prompt.

Now is the problem. How do I return back to my gnome-terminal gdb session, ie, how do I recover from my console login? Via email, somebody informed me that CTRL-ALT-F9 works for him, but it does not for me. In fact, I've tried CTRL-ALT-<every function key> and nothing works for me. The only thing for me to do at this point is to kill the power.

(BTW, the game must be debugged in fullscreen because the problem goes away when not in fullscreen.)

I'm running openSUSE 11.3 32-bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Booting - Automatically Boot To The Gdm/desktop After Updated Gpu Driver?

Oct 11, 2010

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux so please bear with me . I recently installed 10.10 on my new htpc. The initial install went great, until I went to install the updated driver for my graphics card. What I did was I downloaded the driver off of nvidia. Then I did these steps:

1. ctrl-alt-f1

2. logged in

3. sudo services gdm stop

4. I then located the driver package that I downloaded and ran it, it seemed to install fine (except for an error about some install script? but it let me proceed)

5. sudo services gdm start

It went to the gdm/ubuntu desktop. However I then connected it via HDMI, and the resolution was way off (top bar was not even displayed on TV) and I tried many different settings but no luck in fixing it. Next after restarting it did not automatically boot to the gdm/desktop. Instead it stayed at the command line login (the ctrl-alt-f1 screen).

tl;dr : 1. How to make it automatically boot to the gdm/desktop after I updated my gpu driver

2. How to fix the resolution for HDMI from my gpu to my TV. (DVI works fine
