Ubuntu Installation :: Broken System After Crash During 9.10 To 10.04 / Get This Fixed?

May 1, 2010

As the title says, i was in the middle of the upgrade, when the system froze then a black screen with the text similar to: starting apache ..... starting ..... ... in that way, but with more text, i could not remember the exact details. When i boot up, it say /dev not found, and other errors, and a weird black screen that seems to be loading modules appears, but never finishes and starts to act strange. Any way i can get this fixed without just copying my data and reimaging my partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Won't Mount After Crash?

May 2, 2011

After my computer crashed due to an electrical failure in the house, every time I try to boot up (I'm using Ubuntu 10.04) I get the following error:

mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc/ failed: No such file or directory Target filesystem doesn't have requested /sbin/init. No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.

I'm then put into initramfs

I assume that this is because the system wasn't unmounted properly but I haven't been able to find the best way to solve this problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Crash After Partial Upgrade 10.10?

Apr 7, 2011

I have a Dell studio running ubuntu for two years now. I had ubuntu 10.04, but a few days ago, the update manager started to bug me that some stuff don't work properly and that I need to to a partial upgrade. I postponed that for a while, and all worked fine, but I finally had sometime and clicked "yes", all began collapsing:

1) the update manager crashed while updating.

2) I rebooted and ran it again. same crash at the same stage.

3) I decided, god knows why, to do a full upgrade to 10.10, which also crasehd.

Now it won't even boot. It always get stuck at a line saying "no IPv6 routers present" or something of that sort. when I switch off manually the wireless switch on the laptop, the boot gets stuck a bit earlier, on a line that says: "laptop login:"

EDIT: I just remembered something which might be important: I had a hibernation problem on the upgrade to 10.04, so I played around a bit with that. now it uses libgcrypt, and I remember I set up something manually then, but I can't remember what.

Ubuntu Installation :: Crash During 10.04 Install Left System Unbootable

Jun 6, 2010

My son kicked out power during the install phase of 10.04 (about half complete) and now the system is unbootable.

The boot process dies shortly after starting fsck with the error:

init: plymouth main process (382) killed by SEGV signal

So this looks bad (to me), segmentation violations are never good.

So does anyone have any suggestions for booting and completing the upgrade?

If I'm SOL on this OS image is there a way to image over the OS and save my data?

The only option I see now is to buy a new disk, image onto it, mount my current disk and copy my data. (takes money and time)

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrading To 10.04 - Broken System?

Jun 19, 2010

I avoided upgrading to 10.04 when it was initially released because I couldn't afford for anything to go wrong with my computer around exam time. Sure enough, when I decided to upgrade today, the process got about halfway through and then gave me an error and left me with an unbootable system except in a recovery terminal.

In this terminal I discovered that most of the packages the upgrade wanted to configure depended in some way on shared-mime-info or desktop-file-utils. Configuring these with dpkg --configure gives me an error along the lines of:

undefined symbol: g_malloc0_n and an error code of 127. So, dpkg leaves those packages and consequently can't configure many of the subsequent packages in the dist-upgrade.

Ubuntu Installation :: Broken System - Busybox ?

Aug 18, 2011

I've got Ubuntu 11.04 on a 40G hard disk in dual boot with a Windows XP on a 300G hard disk.

I've got back data with an USB key from a broken Windows Seven, then I've shutdown my ubuntu, but it has difficulties to stop (a mp3 player, which doesn't work well, has already damaged my Ubuntu previously). Then my Ubuntu doesn't manage to boot : it launches "Busy Box" with "initramf". When I boot in recovery mode it fails to boot something at 5s then it tries to launch something constantly.

I've launched a live CD in order to recover my data, but when I try to mount my hard disk I get :


I've found this link about this problem : [url], but it's too complicated for me.

I just want to recover my data, a system reinstallation wouldn't bother me.

Ubuntu Installation :: System-crash While Installing Textlive-fonts-extra

Jan 2, 2010

I was multitab browsing (around 15 tabs) in latest firefox for karmic koala (9.10) and at the same time downloading (probably already auto-installing) in synaptic-package-manager the package: textlive-fonts-extra (and other necessary packages; this was around 90 mb download and 250 mb installation)suddenly the pointer doesn't move anymore, (Alt+tab , and other combinations also didn't work anymore)
and I hold the power button untill the computer is turned off,when I reboot I get this message"invalid system disk, replace it and press any key to continue"now I'm using a livedisc to boot the computer (jaunty 9.04)To rebuild the system i think to manually install the packages that probably were interupted while installing and made it not work anymoreThe packages to be installed when text-live-fonts is marked for install (in synaptic opened from the livedisc) are:



This may be different with 9.10 configuration (can anybody look to see which are necessary with 9.10) I think the computer wasn't responding anymore because I used too many tabs at ones. I had this same problem a few times before in the past weeks but then I wasn't installing something and the computer did restart and firefox restored all the tabs. I cannot enter /home/ from the livedisc (no permission) and it's necessary , I am in the middle of exams and i need to print the paper that is on the disc by monday Is there a way to enter it via command console?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Nvidia Driver Install Causes System Reboot Crash

Nov 3, 2010

This was my first experience with Ubuntu, I was told to switch the hard drives on my computer and put the Windows drive in a safe place for the install. The first time I did the install on the hard drive (which was the clean second hard drive that came with my computer), I either didn't realize I believe I didn't realize I had to click a button and thought the install had gotten stuck, and therefore cut off the install midway through. The second time around the install went without a hitch, and I was able to boot to desktop once. There, I was notified that I needed/should install NVIDIA drivers, I believe version 173 was listed as the next most recent drives (the other was "current"), I have an NVIDIA GeForce 7350LE graphics card, and after installing the drivers, I went to the restart menu as directed and clicked restart, not shut down but restart, and there were several listed errors on the text/DOS screen, shutdown errors I believe (the errors were 5 digits and were something like 56759 or something like that, I can't be certain if I'm remembering right, though, but there were two errors going over again). I then proceeded to turn off the computer manually, and upon it coming on again, instead of the normal Ubuntu flash screen before login, a more choppy Ubuntu 10.10 screen popped up and it led me to the DOS mode, where I was able to login, but it did me no good because I don't know command logic for Ubuntu. The best I did (its the best I ever do when these things happen) is get menus to pop up that are basically useless. I turned the computer off and on again three times, and tried booting directly from disk, but that failed.

I'm actually using the same computer I just reinserted the Windows drive back in after the frustrating experience. Windows has been giving me problems itself, and I really wanted to switch to Ubuntu but I need to know that this is a fluke and not the norm. I can live with this sort of thing being so uncommon I must have did something that was very strange and out of the ordinary to my computer. But if its commonplace, I want to know that too, because that's just something I can't live with.

Fedora Installation :: LiveCD-system Crash At Partition Step?

Jun 5, 2011

I run ubuntu, 2 partion, one primary for / , one for /home and ofc swap.When I run the Livecd, at the partition step I do:


-Select my / partition to install

-When I select next I get the error "blah blah, must be probably a bug...." and system crashes.

After system crach I can't boot into Ubuntu or anything, it gets me on the "error 11 ( think is 11 ) grub> " screen.Also, I think its something with my nouveau drivers, I think i get an error when boots the LiveCD something like "fudc...". It happens really fast and I can't read it properly.I did this procedure twice to write the errors, but it happens too fast to check them out. Also, is there a way to prepare the system before installing the Fedora, to avoid these errors?

Debian Installation :: Upgrade / System Broken After Moving To 3.16 Kernel

Apr 28, 2015

I got a rather big problem since an attempt to upgrade.My debian version is 8.0.I upgraded when apt proposed the change. I did that in two steps, with apt-get upgrade and then apt-get dist-upgrade, with the installation of a new kernel. I moved from 3.2.0-4-686-pae to 3.16.0-4-686-pae.Since the upgrade, I can't boot my system any longer.During the boot sequence, this message appears with a countdown (it's copied by hand) :

Code: Select all(1 of 4) a start job is running for dev-disk-byX2du

At the end of the countdown, the boot sequence starts again, and ends up on an invite to log in as root in rescue mode. I can't connect (maybe due to some azerty/qwerty issue, I got a French keyboard. I tried to type in "qwerty mode", with no success (the password is not prompted)).I can connect with the 3.2 kernel however, selecting it form the grub interface. I can't log in in rescue mode either, but with this kernel the boot sequence goes on and I can log as a regular user or as root, at the end of the boot sequence. There is no X, but the system seems to work.What could I do to make the system boot properly with the new kernel, or to go back to the 3.2 version ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Fresh Install "The Package System Is Broken"

Oct 20, 2010

This is my first linux install, Fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, and first thing I do is update. I can't update because I get this message "The package System is broken Check if you are using third party repositories. If so disable them, since they are a common source of problems.

Furthermore run the following command in a Terminal: apt-get install -f"

This a brand new fresh install, how can there be problems already!?

In terminal I've tried " apt-get install -f" and get "E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?"

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Driver Broken After Kernel Update / "System InstallArchive() Error" When Installing?

Jan 30, 2011

I had a working ubuntu 10.10 system two days ago with kernel 2.6.35-24. I have a gtx 460 card so I have the driver from Jockey/Additional Drivers installed.

Two days ago update manager prompted me to install 2.6.35-25. I've never had problems updating kernels so I did. I Rebooted my machine and gdm/gnome no longer starts. I always get stuck on the tty1 screen. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that my current NVidia drivers seems to be messing it up. So I booted into my older kernel (2.6.35-24) and removed my NVidia driver.

I used these steps to switch from nvidia to nouveau:

I can now boot into my latest kernel (2.6.35-25) but now I'm having problems trying to reinstall the nvidia drivers.

jockey sometimes doesn't list any available drivers. and when it does, it gives me an "System InstallArchive() error" when trying to install.

I tried installing nvidia-current via apt-get and I get these errors:

Setting up nvidia-current (260.19.06-0ubuntu1) ...
Removing old nvidia-current-260.19.06 DKMS files...
dkms.conf: Error! No 'DEST_MODULE_LOCATION' directive specified.

Mar 24, 2011

if my PC lags a bit it crashes!But I wouldn't think it would be an ordinary crash.Earlier today I installed Xubuntu 10.04onto my PC. Well, The installation was smooth and I was able to get it installed. Then all of a sudden when I was looking aroundmy PC got caught in a little lag.. And when it lagged this black screen came up and it said

"Starting Common Unix System; cupsd [ OK ] "
"Checking Battery State [ OK ] "

Then That screen disappears and these Straight gray bars come up and they cover the top of my screenAnd they just blink! I figured it might be a glitch so I went to go eat dinner.About 20-30 minutes later I come back and there still blinking.I tryed rebooting the system and trying again and it got cought in a little lag and the

"Starting Common Unix System; cupsd [ OK ] "
"Checking Battery State [ OK ] "

Came back up and it disappeared again and the bars came back!I tried reinstalling Xubuntu 10.04 but it came out the same result.I tried updating the system cause when I installed it it said I had 164 updates waiting.

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: udevmonitor main process (539) killed by TERM signal

Ubuntu :: 2.6.35-23 Random System Freeze / Crash - Fix It?

Nov 29, 2010

I seem to be having a problem on the new Kernel (2.6.35-23) with the system randomly freezing.

I have installed a number of things in recent days leading up to this problem, but when i boot with the old kernel i don't seem to have any issues. From this i am guessing its the new kernel.

The freezing seems (although i am not sure) to be worse when Rhythmbox is running. When it happens everything freezes, the playing song skips, replaying the same one second of music over and over. All the hotkeys stop and the mouse cursor stops responding.

I have seen people talking about system logs to look at system crashes but i don't know how to show those. I also doubt my ability to interpret them.

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Diagnose System Crash

Apr 17, 2011

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 (amd64) on an Intel Atom 525 motherboard. I have a 5-bay SATA enclosure connected to my system through a Syba SD-SATA2-2E2I PCI card (uses the SIL3124 chipset). Under small to moderate load (transfer speed: ~25 Mb/sec), this setup works perfectly. Under heavy load (transfer speed: ~40 - 70 Mb/sec), the system crashes. By crash I mean I loose SSH connectivity, I can't ping the system, etc. The only solution is a hard reset. Initially, I thought this was a SAMBA problem so I logged into the system and tried doing a copy directly from the SATA enclosure to the system disk (connected directly to the motherboard). After 100 GB copied (at ~75 Mb/sec), the system crashed. My question: I am fairly new to Linux and Ubuntu. How would I go about diagnosing this problem?
