Ubuntu Installation :: System Crashed During 11.04 Update

May 7, 2011

I was updating my netbook to the 11.04 when it crashed (I thought is was on the grid, what do you think? it wasn't!) Now if I try to do it again I get a notification and then it stops.

Fedora :: System Crashed During Yum Update

Jul 11, 2011

My system system suffers from frequent kernel panics, which I think are due to gnome-shell with the nVidia driver. (I see no panic message and nothing is logged, but I've enabled magic SysRq and it makes no difference.) Twice this has occurred during yum-update's install stage, which is making me wonder. Uum-update then complained about an unfinished transaction, so I ran yum-complete-transaction as suggested. I've also tried yum-clean-all and rebuilding the RPM database, suggested in other threads, but I'm still seeing the following errors on yum-update:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Protected multilib versions: 1:cups-libs-1.4.7-3.fc15.i686 != 1:cups-libs-1.4.6-15.fc15.x86_64

I don't know where these 32-bit packages have come from this is an x86-64 system and the only x86-32 stuff I've intended to install is the Adobe flash plug-in. Also the later dupes are different 64-bit versions. I've tried "package-cleanup --cleandupes" as suggested in this thread: [URL]. It wants to remove the old versions, but also wants to remove packages that depend on them, including clutter, so I cancelled that. The first time round I was left with a barely usable system and had to reinstall, which I'd rather avoid, especially if this is going to be a regular occurrence. I'm not familiar with RPM (or kernel panics for that matter).

Debian Configuration :: Crashed After System Update

Jan 23, 2011

I updated squeeze last night for the first time. It worked fine after 1st reboot last night. There was one reboot stalled at "hald" so I shut down and restarted. Worked ok 2nd time around

Today,upon login I got a string of taskbar notification (which I couldnt read as they all overlapped . I was able to see a kernel error message but couldnt report it (network was down) or save it (USB stick not recognised) Some programs worked, others didnt

I have the partedmagic rescue distro on USB stick so have those programs to use in order to fix the problem. Any idea how I can repair this? I tried fdisk for the hell of it. reported clean partition as predicted. I am using debian-testing-amd64-kde.

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Crashed During 11.04 Update

May 1, 2011

I was updating Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and my computer crashed/shutoff because of overheating(my laptop doesn't ever do this when running Windows 7 but seems to really need to be as cool as possible when running Ubuntu). the update was at about 12-18 minutes left(also i am using wubi to have it run alongside windows). After getting pissed off that i forgot to backup Ubuntu i restarted it to see if it would finish updating.

To my dismay it the loading screen looked a bit unusual and when it go to the login screen the word "Ubuntu" was flashing uncontrollably and the time in the bottom right corner was acting the same. i feel that i have totally ruined it and i also don't know how i can remove Ubuntu from my computer so that i could reinstall it as Ubuntu 11.04 instead of upgrading from 10.10. i still have Wubi.exe for Ubuntu 10.10 but i'm not sure if that just searches for the most recent version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Update Crashed Evolution Database?

Nov 30, 2010

I always install the Ubuntu Updates that automatically pop up every few days.

Today I installed the update and it wiped out my entire Evolution database.

The Evolution e-mails and e-mail history are still there, but not a single Contact.

Is there any way to 'uninstall' today's update or go back to a time before it was implemented?

Is anyone else having this problem? I do have a database backup, but its about a month old. So I don't want to import it unless there is no way to get the current version back.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Update Crashed - Black Screen On Reboot

May 3, 2011

I tried to update my main computer from Ubuntu 10.0 to 11.04. I wish I could remember what it said, but it crashed during the update. The lights on the keyboard were flashing on and off as well. When I try to boot, all I get is a black screen and flashing lights. The Ubuntu recover also has the same thing. I am going to try a fresh install. For some reason I am leaning to the power manager, but I am no where near sure.

Debian Installation :: Update Crashed - Computer Will Not Boot

Dec 29, 2010

When I updated Linux it crashed in the middle of the update. I think there was not enough disk space. I had a windows dual boot and tried to make the Linux partition larger but in doing that a crashed grub and can't use Linux or Windows. I tried super grub but it didn't work so I tried to fix the partitions with gparted live cd. It my disk just showed up as empty. I formatted it and re installed debian but it didn't work. I can see partitions but my computer won't boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Attempted To Upgrade To 10.04 Through Update Manager - Computer Crashed

May 8, 2010

So I attempted to Upgrade 2 days ago from 9.10 to 10.04. I started the upgrade and left my computer alone as it said it would take several hours. When I returned to check on it, It told me the the installation had failed and it was attempting to roll back to the previous installation. Afterward I couldn't access anything on my computer. I'd click a icon and it wouldn't do anything. I manually restarted it and was greeted with a message that it couldn't boot because there was no mount specified.

Since I had backed up all my files I tried to just reinstall ubuntu. However even after I reinstalled I'm greeted with the same message.

Ubuntu Installation :: System Crashed While Trying To Upgrade To 10.04

Mar 24, 2010

I was trying to upgrade to 10.04 (from 9.10 x86_64)when the update manager crashed without any warning or errors. it happened while the packages were being installed, as a result of which i could no longer login into gnome. so i logged in using the terminal and since i had cleaned the cache before upgrading i ran sudo -i dpkg *.deb (there were a large number of deb files in it, so i thought those were the upgrade packages) but the process couldn't be completed. it said that there were too many errors. after rebooting, gnome doesn't start and i can see lucid development version in the terminal. it also didn't detect my usb keyboard.do i have to reinstall ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10b Crashed With GError, Broke System

Oct 17, 2010

i wanted to upgrade my ubuntu system to meerkat beta via update manager like i upgraded it the last 5+ times.

a bug showed up that i can recall from updating files previously: some software installtions via update manager triggered the programm nicotine+ (i think is was something like man-lib or man-db that, when called by the installtion programm, would trigger nicotine too). since i can close that nicotine+-window and the installation process isnt bothered any further i didnt mind.

now with this upgrade, i had to close nicotine+ around 5 times since it got triggered together with some of the files that got updated/installed in this upgrade.

and then what happened: GError something about an "unrecognized image file", it concerned a py file that was named "nicotine"...

so i waited for 10 mins and figured out that the update process had stopped. i couldnt resist and logged out, wanting to delete nicotine from my system and to reinitialize the upgrade. well, nothing works since then, grub only lets me choose different kernels which didnt help much as there was no way to startx.

my question is:

how can i reset this upgrade mess or bring this pending upgrade to an end? can i do an upgrade via network, based on the emergency shell that comes up in some kernel-recoverymodes? or should i burn a livecd, boot it and then do what? repair? try another upgrade? delete nicotine?

having 'consumed' ubuntu for years now i still wouldnt know what else to do then posting here.

Ubuntu Installation :: Netbook Crashed / Windows XP System Files Corrupted?

Sep 1, 2011

My HP Netbook crashed. The Windows XP system files corrupted and Windows absolutely will not run. I planned on using Ubuntu to recover it, and then install Ubuntu permanently to save it in the future. Before you ask, every other utility has failed on me. UBCD included, which did nothing but provide me with errors upon errors just trying to run it.

The netbook has no CD drive.The only internet around is a wireless signal... my netbook has a broadcom wireless card that is never recognized. I'm using someone elses working laptop to connect online and get things I need, make boot devices, research for help, etc.This laptop has barely any hard drive space. Currently it has 1 gb remaining for doing anything.I have three flash memory devices:2 gb SD card. My netbook refuses to recognize it as a boot device.2 gb flash stick (that's actually an mp3 player). My netbook refuses to recognize it as a boot device.512 mb flash stick. This DOES work as a boot device.

So far my 512 mb flash stick has run Damn Small Linux and Ubuntu Minimal on my netbook. Of course, both are useless because the netbook cannot access internet, nor does either OS recognize my wireless card. This flash stick is, obviously, too small for a regular Ubuntu installation or any other Linux distribution that can help (as far as I know).

So, in order for this to work, I have to be able to do one of the following:

Install Ubuntu from a different OS, like Damn Small Linux or something small enough to boot on my 512 mb stick. Ubuntu can be put on one of the other, larger devices, maybe to be accessed for installation. No idea how to do this, let alone safely.

Install Ubuntu Minimal OFFLINE. This question was asked multiple times on these forums and none were answered. Is there a way to run minimal, and use offline sources for the install?

Get the normal Ubuntu installer under 500 mb. Its overwhelmingly frustrating that I'm just barely unable to do this. I've read of Ubuntu Customization Kit, which ended up being lots of useless files and reams of gobbldegook. I've heard Ubuntu is packed with additional, nonrequisite software which makes it so large. Why can't there be a halfway version between normal and minimal?? Not everyone has internet and not everyone has a CD drive or large USB stick! Is there a way this can be accomplished? Does this version exist?

I have limited time and resources. Before you ask, no, I cannot afford a larger USB stick. I'm pinching pennies right now and there's nowhere near here that sells them anyway.

During a reboot, the file system crashed and fsck couldn't repair.I loaded it again, did all the updates, and loaded my applications. On about the third reboot, it crashed again and fsck couldn't fix it.I don't really know where to begin. I doubt seriously that any hardware has went bad since yesterday.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Shockwave Flash Plugin Crashed After Update

Mar 8, 2011

after running an upgrade chromium browser shockwave flash plugin crashed! if you have the same problem i have a workaround. firstly open firefox goto a website that uses flash (not videos) i used bbc iplayer, then right click and click on "settings..." the left most tab shows the "enable hardware acceleration" tickbox. untick it

then close and reopen chromium and go back to a flash site e.g. videos and test it is working. the reason this worked for me is that there is a bug in either googles chromium or the unix/x11 build of shockwave flash or my graphics card drivers. there seems to sevral bug reports regarding this on the net [url]. flash could be a little slower now it doesn't have the hardware accelerating it. so maybe the setting could be re-enabled in the future?

Fedora :: After Last Update Nvidia Drivers Crashed

Mar 13, 2009

I updated fedora 10 a few days ago, by blindly installing every update available, and when i restarted, my nvidia drivers weren't loading, and I'm having an issue I had before, where the signal being sent to the monitor is out of frequency range. Basically when fedora tries to load its GUI, my monitor just goes blank. Before I could only fix it by plugging in a different (less tempermental) monitor, and messing around with the display driver.

I was wondering if there is a way to mess with the drivers from the command line. I really don't like switching out monitors, and i want to learn the skillz and such.

Ubuntu :: Update Manager Crashed - Root Filesystem Check Failed

Apr 8, 2011

This is a Natty system. I ran update manager to update to the latest releases for Natty, and it crashed. I ran it again and it told me it could only do a partial upgrade, and that I should do apt-get install -f. I did that, but apt-get told me the system was locked by another program. Not to worry I thought, I'll just reboot. So I did that, and I think Update-Manager got a lot further through the process than I thought, because my system is borked. It'll boot into Gnome, but when booting up the Boot Screen no longer shows the pretty Ubuntu Logo, but rather a line of text that says "Ubuntu 11.04".

When it gets into Gnome the keyboard and mouse more or less don't work (although the keyboard based Fn+9 and Fn+10 brightness control still works) and there is no desktop background. After about 30 seconds something crashes but I can't click on it to find out what. Going into the recovery console doesn't help either. The latest Kernel (2.6.38-7) stops moving forwards after "Begin:Running /scripts/init-bottom...done". has occurred for the second time. Luckily I still have the previous kernel, which gets to the same spot and then tells me:
"init: udevtrigger main process (390) terminated with status 1" and then "init: udevtrigger post-stop process (394) terminated with status 1".

I then get the message
"The disc drive for / is not ready yet or not present. Continue to wait; or Press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery". S goes back to "Begin:Running /scripts/init-bottom...done" a second time, M brings up the message:
"Root filesystem check failed. A maintenance shell will now be started"
and then it asks for the root password and gives me a terminal. Everything seems to be there, but apt-get and dpkg both can't do anything as the filesystem is read only.

OpenSUSE :: Reset The Online Updater After The App- Crashed During Update

Dec 17, 2010

I'm running 10.3, KDE, 32bit. I am working with a fresh install. The updater stated that I had updates , I accepted the updates. At this point the updater failed in some way. It did not become a zombi but stalled. I quit the updater. Now when I try and get online updates using the sys tray updater it sais none available. When I use yast online update it has some recommended updates but does not install them. I rebuilt the rpm data base and this did not help.

How can I "reset" the updater. I believe that it thinks that it did go thru the updates and therefor cant see that they still need attention.

I then did fsck -f and it found and fixed errors in phase 5 (group summary). Now when I run fsck -f I think it's clean?fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010)
