Ubuntu :: Lucid Boot Hangs When Using Thinkpad With Monitor / Sort It?

Aug 15, 2010

I use an IBM Thinkpad T30 with an ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 graphics card as my work machine, mostly at a desk, using a docking station to link it into a monitor. I upgraded to Lucid last weekend. When using the integral screen on the laptop the graphics have been fine, but when using a monitor I initially got some very poor contrast, brightness and gamma output, described in this bug.


According to the advice in that bug report, I upgraded the kernel, with Kernelcheck automatically updating me to 2.6.35-candela. Now, rather than poor graphics with the monitor it just hangs on the splash screen, displaying the words Ubuntu with the dots underneath.

Reading around, when similar problems have been seen in previous versions of Ubuntu it has been a graphics issue, which fits. One piece of advice I've seen quite commonly is to remove the "quiet splash" from grub, which I've tried but doesn't work. I am tempted to try and work through the different grub commands these guys used to tackle a similar problem with the live CD:


But am a bit reticent as I don't know what they all do.

As an aside, the 2.6.35-candela kernel brings up a bunch of errors on boot, described at the link below, but reading that thread they don't look like they would cause my problem:

Aug 24, 2011

I am installing Fedora 15 as a guest machine on virtual box. the installation completes fine, but it gets hanged on the date and time screen during first boot. Even on clicking "Forward" button it doesn't work and just gets stuck there.
I am using windows 7 as the host machine and I have given 1 GB ram and 8 GB hard disk to guest fedora OS.
Before the installation, I checked the media also it was shown to be correct. The media I am using is virtual clone drive for DVD ISO image. VirtualBox version 4.1.2 was used.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Boot Hangs For A While / Solve This?

May 2, 2010

I installed lucid the other day on my laptop, the first time it booted after installing it gave two error messages (unfortunately I can't remember what they said). The errors stopped appearing after that but once I select Ubuntu from the boot menu, it just hangs on a black screen for a good 15 seconds at the least before it runs the plymouth screen for like 2 seconds (the progress bar is already full) and then goes into the login screen. Here is my boot chart:


I was wondering if anyone can tell from that what is causing the issue and perhaps how to fix it? The boot log is like 3 lines long and is completely normal.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot From Grub Prompt - CD On Lucid / Sort It?

Sep 1, 2011

First, I know there are numerous threads on grub errors but I have tried all possible solutions and that's why I'm here. My issue is that I'm not able to boot from the grub prompt as described for installing grub from a LiveCD https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Gr...0from%20LiveCD. I can see grub is installed but is missing the kernal and other files. code...

I ran the boot_info script and the output is attached. From what I can tell it cannot even detect an OS being installed, but I've kept everything up to date and never had any issues. Everything was fine yesterday and now this. Also, I tried the Boot Repair CD and that did not work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On Thinkpad T61 After Lucid Upgrade?

Jul 29, 2010

I can't get sound to work and am not sure how to trouble shoot. The sound DOES work when first booting, and I can make it play a test beep with the sound config app. But I cannot get sound from any other application. One possibly relevant fact is that I see a lot of I/O errors early in the boot process, but they flash by quickly so I cannot quote them.

Ubuntu :: Configuring USB Soundcard In Lucid On Thinkpad W510 ?

Oct 4, 2010

Just got a new Thinkpad W510 at work. It has a combined headphones & mic connector. Unfortunately, I cannot find an adapter for my regular headset with separate headphone & mic jacks. So I have to revert to using a USB Soundcard Adapter that came with the headset. Unfortunately I am running into problems with this too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On Clean 10.04 Lucid Lynx On A Thinkpad T61?

Sep 26, 2010

I've installed a clean Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx on my ThinkPad T61, and everything seems to be OK, but I am unable to get any sound output at all (internal speakers and external audio).

No system sounds, no sound from Movie Player, Rythmbox, Sound Recorder.

On my previous Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 I had no problems with sound (as far as I can recall).

Any hints to what I should do to try to get sound output?

The output from various sound related commands included below.

$ sudo lshw -C sound

Slackware :: Random Hangs / Sort It Out?

Feb 21, 2010

I made some hardware upgrades today: installed a new video card, a new CPU cooler, and a DVD burner. Everything seemed fine, but every 10-15 minutes the computer just freezes. Freeze is actually the wrong word since I can still move the mouse's cursor, but it has no effect. Keyboard input is useless and I just have to reboot. On the 3rd reboot fsck checked the root partition and made some changes.

I have checked system/CPU temperature to see if maybe the cooler wasn't working right and checked it's mounts. Everything there is great.

The system hangs whether I'm using the burner or not. (It's an ASUS)

The hangs seem to happen when scrolling a window or changing desktops, but I'm constantly doing something to that effect so it's hard to say if that's the cause.

The card is GALAXY Geforce 240GT. I've never used a Galaxy card so I'm leaning towards that, and have gone back to the old Geforce 9400 in the meantime, but while I'm waiting to see what happens, I was wondering if maybe the filesystem getting modded in the fsck check might point to a filesystem error causing the hangs, or if it seemed more likely that the filesystem was corrupted by the hangs.

Fedora :: Bash Hangs When Command Not Found / Sort It?

Dec 9, 2009

I've been using linux for a long time, and I just ran into a problem that has me stumped. Any time I mistype a command, it says "Command not found."... yea, I know that's normal. But it doesn't return me to my # prompt. I have to press Ctrl+C to get back. code...

I know I do have one issue with this computer, I have 2 blown caps on my motherboard. This was a dual boot system, but after a virus with winblows, I decided to switch it to strictly linux. (roommates... *grumble*) I think I was running fc10 before I wiped the hd & installed fc12. Fc12 does seem to be running slower, and I still haven't got my sound card working properly... but that issue is for another topic...

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Laptop Hangs After Fresh Install And First Update / Sort It?

Jun 12, 2010

I just installed 10.04 on an Acer 4736 laptop and was prompted for a software update of about 170 MB.

I went through with the update downloads and installation, got an error message of some packages not being found, and clicked on the "close" button on the dialogue to finish with the whole thing.

Now the Update Manager window with the grayed-out package updates didn't go away, and the cursor would always show the "busy" circle thing. I waited for a while, but nothing happened. I tried opening Firefox to check for anything about this on the net, but it wouldn't open.

So I left it alone, and it the screen went black (screensaver, I guess). When I tried to get back to the desktop, I couldn't. Screen wouldn't respond and it stayed black; no password prompt or anything.

Ctrl-Alt-Backspace wouldn't take me back to the login screen either.

Fedora :: System Hangs On Reboot After Installing Kmod-nvidia In F12 / Sort It?

Mar 31, 2010

Having a problem with my system hanging after updating Fedora 12. Here are my system specs:

Gigabyte MA770-UD3 motherboard
AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core
6 gig Corsair DDR 800
1 x 160 gig SATA (OS)
1 x 500 gig SATA (data)

I have my system configured for dual boot with Windows 7. After installing F12, I can reboot with no problem. However, after I install the kmod-nvidia drivers, my system hangs on reboot. If I press any key on the keyboard, it will start to load, the freeze until I press a key again. I have tried both Fedora 12 x64 and i386 with the same results. Here are the steps that I took to install the kmod-nvidia drivers code...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

Ubuntu :: Won't Save Monitor Settings Upon Reboot / Sort It?

May 4, 2011

So I have a fresh updated install of 10.10 on dell dimension 4550

The pc connects to my monitor through a dlink KVM switch so I can switch back and forth between computers.

When I reboot my monitor settings disapear and everything is real real large.

If i disconnect from the KVM and connect Ubuntu directly to the monitor and detect monitor it will allow me to adjust settings so everything looks normal. Until I reboot and I am back to the same huge icons again. If I try to go back and adjust monitor settings there are only 2 settings options because it does not see my monitor through the kvm switch again.

Fedora Hardware :: Computer Hangs In 3D Mode With Hot-plug Warning (not GPU Overheating) / Sort It?

Dec 29, 2010

After some time (thirty second - a few minutes) computer hung (screen froze, I couldn't switch to console, only hard reset helped). From log message I suspected graphic card and I replaced it to some other based on PCI Express (GeForce 6200). It's better. Computer works fine during office work (OO, Firefox, ...), but after being a few minutes in 3D mode (e.g. game with graphics 3D) hangs in the same way.

The last messages in log are always code...

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Lynx Hangs On Login?

May 20, 2010

When I try logging in using any user name, ubuntu just returns to the login screen. I cannot actually log in. I used the recovery mode to create a new login with password 123456, and the same thing happens. What could it be? Ubuntu worked just fine for a while, then DKMS started causing problems, I had errors with upgrades, software installs/uninstalls, then my sound went. I found a great fix for the sound (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting), the sound came back, but then I could not log back in again. I cannot find any help for this issue, and had to install 9.10 Karmic Koala, and that's what I have been using for the past couple of days.10.04 has been fairly buggy for me and I am considering staying with 9.10, or going to another Linux distro.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Hangs Randomly After Waking From Screensaver?

Feb 15, 2011

32 bit Lucid is hanging at random times for me. it always happens when there's some sort of full-screen overlay, like when waking from screensaver, or when using gksu (dims the screen). The machine will remain unresponsive for 30 seconds to a minute, then becomes usable again, just with the desktop not refreshed. Nothing of interest in the logs when this happens. The last thing upgraded in the machine was the graphics card (now running a GTS 450). 3d apps work just fine, temps are just fine, and I have no reason to believe it's hardware.

General :: Add A Second Monitor And Now Hangs?

Mar 3, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10 and I was trying to add a second monitor and did not have any luck. I was toying with resolutions and some other video settings (just in the GUI), don't quite remember all of them. When I tried to log out and back in they system just hangs.

I am in the process of booting into the repair mode (something like that, don't remember the exact wording) that was in Grub. Is there anything that I can do at the prompt to put my video back to rights? This is my work computer so I'm kinda hosed till I get this fixed.

Ubuntu Servers :: Page Load Hangs After Lucid Upgrade

Apr 30, 2010

I just upgraded my server from 9.10 to 10.04. I have ISPconfig installed on it and worked like a charm until the upgrade. Now when I point a browser to my site the page just hangs as if it is trying to load it but I never get an error nor does it load the page. I have tried to restart apache using /etc/init.d/apache2 restart in which I receive an fail error:

root@ubuntu:~# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
* Restarting web server apache2 (9Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down


After this I still get the same results when trying to load the page in the browser.

I cannot load anything in the www root or virtual host files.

General :: Lucid With 1GB RAM Hangs And Swap Usage Very Low

Jan 1, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on my PC with 1GB of RAM and 3GB of Swap partition. But the machine gets hung or reboots itself when the usage is even marginally higher. This is the output of "free -m" for Swap:

Swap: 2908 11 2897

I have tried increasing the swappiness to 80, and this not made any difference. I believe the RAM is taking up all the load and none of the pages are going in to the swap. Hence the slow response and the frequent hung system. I know this is an old PC but Windows XP (installed on another HDD) runs way better on the same configuration.

Ubuntu Installation :: USB Boot Works With Thinkpad T60 But Not With T520?

I created USB boot media with unetbootin on a 4 Gb stick, and it worked with my old T60 but not with this T520 (it just jumps back to boot device selection few seconds after selecting USB as there was nothing written on the stick).

Specs of the machines are

3 Gb RAM

Ubuntu Installation :: Lucid Upgrade Hangs When Upgrading MySQL Server

When this happens you have to open a terminal, get the process id for mysql-server-5 then kill that process. Like this:
ps -A
then from the list of processes that it spits out look at the process id (the number at the beginning of the line) for mysql-server-5.

Now type
sudo kill -9 XXXXX
where XXXXX is the process id for mysql-server, and enter your password. The upgrade process should now resume.

Fedora :: Login Screen Hangs After Changing Monitor?

May 4, 2010

I have been searching this forum and google extensively for the last few hours, and I cant dig up anything useful. I have a very weird problem:

Install Fedora 12 from livecd on a widescreen monitor:

- Using Nvidia 96xx drivers for my Gforce2 MX

Everything runs fine at this point. Connect old 17" flatscreen and no network: Login freezes for about a minute after username selection, no password prompt, no mouse movement, no keyboard response, after timeout I return to login screen before username selection .. and can repeat this or.. At that point (or before that point) I can ctrl+alt F2 to 'terminal' screen, login works fine.

init 3, login as root

Works fine then, resolution is %^# tho, and cant change it at that point due to errors I get. I'm convinced the problem has nothing to do with my X configuration tbh. Booting from the LiveCD on this configuration works fine. I am tempted to think it has something to do with my GDM, but as my knowledge is limited, I cant figure it out. If I reconnect the widescreen, it all works fine ...

General :: Installing Ubuntu On Lenovo Thinkpad Laptop - Won't Boot From Cd Drive

Nov 27, 2010

I've just joined the linux gang(or I am trying to) I have

-downloaded desktop/netbook edtion

-burned to dvd using infrarecord

-changed bios settings to boot from cd

-didn't work

-used the override feature that gives a bootlist at splash screen but cd drive not listed so I assume the cd is not recognised as a boot disk

-tried the usb/cd maker that comes with in the rar but its looking for the cd image...an .iso file, but I can't find one in folder.

ubuntu says I can run a trial from the cd alongside vista but when I open the executable it just offers intall, no try and if selected starts to install I think I can do the partition thing if I have to but I don't want any vista running on my machine.
