Ubuntu :: Booting Hangs From Time To Time (Lucid)?

May 3, 2010

I started out with Kubuntu RC, then installed ubuntu-desktop and updated all the way to the current state of packages.Anyway, from the moment I installed the RC, from time to time the boot splash appears, the dots light up/turn off and then the booting hags. No key seems to work.I the do a hard reset and everything works just fine.As not to open another thread:- how can I see the Ubuntu splash screen? (currently I can see the Kubuntu one)- how can I turn the splash off and have it boot in text mode?

Debian :: First Time Installation Hangs On At Boot

Aug 23, 2015

I've got the last Debian stable release, the amd64-DVD-1 file , and copy it to my USB stick, using win32diskimager, as recommended in the installation guide.

It seems to go all fine, but when I rebooted, after entering the passphase it started a fsck "from util-linux 2.25.2", then it says:

"/dev/mapper/Debian-root: clean" and stuck there. i gave it quite a bit of time, tried to reinstall it and also got into the rescue mode of the installer,

Fedora :: Plasma Hangs For A Long Time?

Aug 21, 2009

The desktop stops working, the panel stops working.. but compositing, desktop cube etc all work fine.I can still launch a program with Alt-F2.When I try and kill it (to restart) using 'killall plasma' / 'kill -9 <pid> / 'kill -15 pid' from a terminal, nothing happens, the process keeps running. If I leave it for about 30 mins it suddenly dies, allowing me to run 'plasma' from a terminal - then everything is back to normal.

If I log out and try to log back in again, I get a black screen. Only way to fix it is either to kill it and wait for 30 mins or so, or totally reboot the computer.Tail of the xsessions error file:

[/usr/bin/nepomukservicestub] Removing connection
[/usr/bin/nepomukservicestub] Removing connection
[/usr/bin/nepomukservicestub] CLuceneIndex::close in thread 3086616432[code]....

Fedora Installation :: Hangs On Same Package Each Time?

Dec 7, 2009

I'm trying to install F12 on an iMac G4 (ppc). I partitioned the HD with OS X (10.4.11) on a 50 GB partition, left the remaining 26 GB free, then ran the installer. Everything seems to run very smoothly until it hits this package: sendmail-8.14.3-8.fc12.ppc. Then everything freezes. After this happened twice, I pulled a few applications out, thinking it might be a space issue, but it hung in exactly the same place next time. The install DVD passed the media check at the beginning of the install. Is there a way I could keep this package out of the install and, if it's needed, pull it in from the repositories later?

Slackware :: After Some Idle Time It Hangs /freezes

Jun 6, 2011

After some idle time Slackware hangs up/freezes. When, for an example, i turn on music i can hear it on idle time but after some time music still plays but i'm losing picture (monitor detects no signal), num lock is locked, led on keyboard are turned on but won't turn off while pressing num lock. I've switched off power saving options in Slackware and on bios setup.

My spec is:

X4 620 (without overclocking)
AMD 760G (Radeon HD 3000)
Catalyst 11.5 for Radeon graphic.

BTW - computer works fine with Windows. Also, with Slackware i can work for an hours, many hours and everything is fine but as soon as i leave it for some amount of time = it hangs/freezes. There is something wrong with hibernation. Not always computern is turned off correctly. TV is switched off, slackware logged off but i hear drives working and cooler fans. It should be switched off completly.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Not Loading/booting After Some Time?

Feb 5, 2011

OK, so I installed Ubuntu 10.10 alongside with my other os(XP,win7,XP)nd after some time using it, (3-5 weeks or so) it stopped to boot soon after grub2 menu. First I recovered some of my data, and then I reinstalled ubuntu 10.10 because there is no repair option on the live cd. And yesterday when I wanted to go into ubuntu, after grub2 menu, it froze at the same point (like the last time ) and it never continued.... I need to check where it stops in 2nd option (recovery something) from grub2 and write it down and post it here.

I don't want to reinstall ubuntu again, since this problem will return, probably, and I have to spend some time for customizing and nesting in my ubuntu . I'm not asking for a program or recovery software, ill do it manually when I know how XD

Ubuntu :: System Crash While Booting Up For Second Time?

Feb 3, 2010

System specs:
Compaq presario 430-EB
320 GIG storage
AMD athlon dual core x64 2.1 mghz processor
Nvidia 8200 M

I recently decided to partition my laptop wholly to ubuntu, so i installed ubuntu without any problem, then i logged on for the first time and i installed the driver to my monitor (nvidia) and i did sudo apt-get update which made me get all sorts of updates, untill the updating stopped at about halfway asking me to reboot the system.

I rebooted the system, but no matter what i do, if i run it in recovery mode or not, i always get stuck on this piece of code on a black screen:

fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16
/dev/sda1: clean, 148123/18841600 files, 1880615/75358899 blocks
init: udevtrigger main process (540) terminated with status 1
init: udevtrigger post-stop process (541) terminated with status 1
init: udevmonitor main process (539) killed by TERM signal
init: networking main process (544) terminated with status 1

Also, please no answers like "hav u tried liek reinstalling ubuntu lolz?" because i wouldn't bother posting this thread if i considered doing that -_-'

Fedora :: Microcode - Boot Process Hangs At Startx Time

Sep 4, 2010

Ever since the kernel update to, my boot process hangs at about startx time. I boot cleanly at runlevel 3 in either this or the previous kernel. If I execute startx from here (in either kernel), the system hangs at the same place. During the early troubleshooting, I read in another thread (250929) about installing xorg-x11-drv-catalyst, which I did using yum. This led to the failure of the 2.6.33 kernel; yum remove did not fix this. I have carefully followed the instructions in the fglrx HOWTO (updated a week ago by Hlingler) as they relate to a PAE kernel (including reinstalling mesa-libGL), and that fixed earlier difficulties. Hence, I felt I needed a new thread.

dmesg tells me
microcode: CPU0: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
Linux video capture interface: v2.00
piix4_smbus 0000:00:14.0: SMBus Host Controller at 0xb00, revision 0
microcode: CPU1: patch_level=0x2000032
platform microcode: firmware: requesting amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin
microcode: Microcode Update Driver: v2.00 .....

But the program itself reports
# microcode_ctl -h
This program is for updating the microcode on Intel processors belonging to the IA32 family - PentiumPro upwards (x86-64 included). It depends on the Linux kernel driver. The website urbanmyth.org/microcode (mentioned by yum info microcode_ctl) clearly indicates that Intel has taken over this microcodecode distribution, and suggests that it is no longer valid for AMD processors.

I found a reference to a kernel configuration flag CONFIG_MICROCODE_AMD (as a plausible subsititute for CONFIG_MICROCODE_INTEL) that possibly belongs in a script in /etc/init.d - but the above context leads me to suspect this is not true any more. In any event, those flags are not mentioned anywhere in my init.d scripts - in fact nowhere in the entire /etc tree. My microcode file exists, and is dated March 23. How do I get it installed? Or is this completely unrelated to my hanging boot problem, as suggested by the "platform microcode" line in the dmesg output? If so, where should I be looking?

Ubuntu :: Lucid - Network Quits Working Every Time

Jun 27, 2010

I didn't quite know how to describe my problem in the title. I installed Lucid i386 on my wife's PC two days ago. I updated all programs from the update manager. This PC uses a usb Wifi adapter for internet. When I boot the PC, the internet works. But after one or two hours, the networking capabilities disappear. In the network list in the panel there are NO networks listed, and the only way that I have been able to restore the ethernet is to restart the PC. What can I do to correct this?

Ubuntu :: Custom Commands Before Login Time In Lucid?

Jul 24, 2010

I would like to run a few custom commands when booting: "xinput" to calibrate the touchscreen and a couple of "setkeycodes" to make special buttons responsive.

From within a session I need to do "sudo setkeycodes [etc]" - without root access there's a "couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console" error message.

Ideally these commands would already be operational at the login screen, and without requiring entering a root password every time.

I've put the commands in an otherwise empty /etc/rc.local but this does nothing. Other posts mention bootscript.sh but I don't get how this is used; and the best way to do this seems to have changed between versions - so what's the proper Lucid way?

Ubuntu :: Running Real Time Kernel With Lucid?

Sep 25, 2010

I have the latest release of Lucid Lynx installed. I want to try out audio recording on Linux so I want to know if it's possible to use a real time kernel with Lucid. So I installed the 2.6.31 real time kernel. It shows up in GRUB, but when I boot it gives me the message:

mounting none on /dev failed No such device

It then takes me to the login screen, and once I enter my password it just takes me back to the login.

Ubuntu :: After Log In Takes Long Time To Show Desktop, Monitor Events At Log In Time?

May 24, 2011

It takes me a while to log in the splash screen just sits there for ages before i get to the desktop. Never used to be this slow and I'm not sure why. Firstly, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, standard DE. I do have conky starting up in a script but it has the & at the end of the line so I didn't think this would cause it (or is there some special case for log in time on how & is treated?). However as a test I will comment out the line in the script and see if it is the cause.

However just for general knowledge and in case that isn't the problem, how does one go seeing what is happening during the time from when one log's in and the desktop is displayed? Is there some kind of log that shows the date/time that can be enabled or is there a debug mode that can be enabled somehow via special keys or maybe from grub?

Ubuntu Servers :: Get Notices That There Are Updates For The Server Software From Time To Time?

Mar 29, 2010

I have several file servers in our offices and I am relatively new to Ubuntu / Linux. I get notices that there are updates for the server software from time to time. Is it typical to update everything when available or should I follow "If it ain't broke, don't fix it..." mentality?I would hate for everything to be working fine and then have an update throw me a curve.

Ubuntu Servers :: System Time Runs Slow Hareware Time Run Right?

Apr 11, 2011

I am running my Ubuntu 32 bit server on top of Windows 7 64 bit with VirualBox. It's a 2 core Atom. It's been working good for about half a year. But the last about 6 weeks the system time only in Ubuntu is going slow. About -8 per 24 hours! I can only guess because I have more things running in my Windows 7 and Ubuntu.

I can set it right by coping the hareware time to system time with this command:

hwclock --hctosys

I want to run a crontab to have that command run every minute. But it don't seem to run.

OpenSUSE :: Kickoff Menu Hangs Long Time While Typing Appname / Fix It?

Feb 10, 2010

Sometimes I get this weird thing where typing a name into the kickoff menu hangs after a few letters. It hangs the entire computer! Once it happens, I try to close it but have to wait about 20 seconds before I can do anything on the computer. Then everything else works fine (after it's closed). But if I go back to kickoff and try again, it does the same thing! I can't seem to find anything in "top" to indicate what's happening.

openSUSE 11.2
KDE 4.3.4
Linux i686
AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3100+ 1.8 GHZ
nVIDIA G98 GForce 8400 GS with nvidia driver

Total memory (RAM): 1.4 GiB
Free memory: 541.6 MiB (+ 506.1 MiB Caches)
Free swap: 2.0 GiB

Here's "top" during a recent issue where konqueror wasn't opening to show sysinfo and there was some hanging (although this was after it came back from kickoff hanging) code...

CentOS 5 :: Udev Hangs On Boot For A Long Time, Suspect Pam_console_apply?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm hoping someone knows about this one... I'm running the latest CentOS 5.4 with kernel 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5 (x86_64).When I boot the machine, it gets to the udev starting bit, hangs for like 5 minutes, then prints a message "Failed, will continue in the background." Then it boots OK after that.I tried booting again with the kernel option (from grub) "udevdebug", and what I saw when it tried again was a million messages saying it was waiting for "/sbin/pam_console_apply" to return, but I guess it wasn't returning... ;) Again, after 5 minutes, it gave up and finished booting.Now, this host is an LDAP client.

I figured that may have something to do with it as it is likely that pam_console_apply tries to make an LDAP lookup, which is wrong, because networking hasn't even started yet. If I disable LDAP (by removing ldap lookups in nsswitch.conf), I get no pam_console_apply errors from udev and it boots quickly. But that's a bummer, I need LDAP on this box, and I don't want my boot time to be 7-8 minutes. ;)Presumably before, when LDAP was enabled and it waited 5 minutes and then notified me that it will "continue in the background", that it was eventually successful after networking started. LDAP otherwise works fine on this box, just like all the other servers we have.This is new behavior, I've not seen it with CentOS 5.3 and below. Has anyone seen this? Any hints on what I can do to avoid it? It seems like a pam bug or something, but I don't know for sure.
