Ubuntu :: Shutdown Hangs - Rc Main Process Killed?

Mar 29, 2010

recently a weird error occured on my Ubuntu Karmic. When I shutdown (or reboot) the os, the flashing logo shows and then the whole process hangs with last few lines of shutdown log displayed. The last line then says this error:

init: rc main process (pid) killed by TERM signal where pid is actual pid of that process.

Then I have to shutdown the computer manually with hardware button. It's no big deal, it's just not that comfortable and I'd really like to know why this is happening.

Ubuntu :: Plymouth Main Process Killed By SEGV Signal?

Apr 20, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu on a Cr-48 netbook, which has an odd custom bios which can't boot regular bootloaders/kernelsI'm therefore using the existing kernel on the machine rather than the Ubuntu one, with no initrd/initramfs, just booting directly to the Ubuntu root filesystem.t's just a minimal text mode install right now, from the alternate installerAt boot time, plymouth crashes. It doesn't seem to actually affect the system, everything still boots just fine, but it doesn't seem like it should be doing that I get:

mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth
init: plymouth main process (70) killed by SEGV signal

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot: Init: Plymouth Main Process (57) Killed By SEGV Signal

May 2, 2011

I upgraded from Ubuntu 10.0.4 to 11.0.4 on a Dell Optiplex. Now, when I boot, I am given the option to boot into different kernels. I select "ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.38-8-generic", which results in a black screen that reads


init: plymouth main process (58) killed by SEGV signal and that's where it hangs. Pressing ENTER or hitting Esc does nothing. What steps can I take to recover my machine and all the files I used to have on it?

Ubuntu :: What Is Kslowd001 Process / Why Cannot Be Killed

Oct 19, 2010

In Ubuntu 10.10 on a REALLY old laptop, everything works fine - except the system occasionally gets a lag spike, where the CPU is suddenly being throttled. This wouldn't be a problem, except my mother's using the laptop to play backing music for her choir and the CPU spikes are causing the music to stutter. After much searching and eventually resorting to TOP, I found that the CPU was being throttled every 10-20 seconds or so by a process called, "kslowd001". "sudo kill -9 `pidof kslowd001`" did nothing, nor did, "sudo killall -9 kslowd001". It doesn't want to die, it just wants to throttle the CPU, and I just want it to stop. What does this process actually do? Why can't I kill it? How do I switch it off, or otherwise stop it from throttling the CPU every couple of seconds so that we can actually listen to music or watch videos from the laptop?

General :: Process Killed During SSH Session

Jul 31, 2009

I've always wondered whether my process kills when I am in the process of doing something during my ssh session. For instance, I ssh from my local box to dev-formbox and did an scp transfer to another remote host. All of the sudden, I lost ssh connectivity on my local box due to network issue. Will the scp process (or any of my process that I am currently doing) kill also once I loose the ssh session?

General :: Process Getting Killed - No Log (Plenty Of Free RAM)

Jan 25, 2011

I am reasonable linux skilled. I am running a VPS account with Debian Linux Lenny, Virtualmin/Webmin. This has only recently started but I don't know at what point, as haven't done much on it recently but applied some updates. There's always at least 50% free ram when it happens (of 512mb) and basically no CPU activity. I've even tried killing off all process's apart from what I believed to be needed to test, (init, sshd, loggers). I can find mention of the action anywhere in any logs, even though I have klogd and syslog running. It seems to happen at varying intervals fairly regularly with certain processes. I've had it happen with a big 'rm -r' but more regularly with make's , make install's, apt-get (while its awaiting your reply to proceed), and rtorrent.

All I get is "Killed" and back to prompt,
If I type "echo $?" I get '137'

Ubuntu :: Init: Ureadahead Main Process (423) Terminated With Status 5?

Dec 1, 2010

Code: init: ureadahead main process (423) terminated with status 5 Ubuntu 10.10 lorentz tty1

lorentz login: The first line of the above shows up during boot before the display goes graphical. I can see it again (all of the above) when I Ctrl+Alt+F1 to access the first text console. Anyone know what is causing this, what problems can happen as a result, and what should be done about it? I moved from 9.10 on one machine to 10.10 on a new machine, so I don't know if it's a hardware problem or software. I am running 64-bit. I am not really seeing any problems happening besides the few scattered application and GUI glitches that are common with a new/migrated setup.

Ubuntu :: Init: Hostname Main Process (#) Terminated With Status 1?

Apr 20, 2011

I keep getting this message as the first thing I see when I boot up. Afterwards, it displays the ubuntu logo and dots under it and then the screen blacks out, but the display lights act like its OK (wireless ETC). should I use a boot CD or something? The hard drive is fine and this happened after the computer blacked out during updates. i scanned the hard drive and its OK, according to the little scan thing you can do before booting up. I have a Compaq Presario V200. For specs, thats all I know.

Ubuntu :: Boot Error: Failed To Spawn Rc-sysinit Main Process?

Ubuntu :: Hangs On Splashscreen During Shutdown?

Jun 11, 2010

Ubuntu hangs on splash screen when shutting down and restarting after creating startup scrip.

I created the upstart script using the following method:

sudo gedit /etc/init.d/local.autostart "Edit local.autostart"

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/local.autostart And sudo update-rc.d local.autostart defaults 80. After this ubuntu hangs on the splash screen during shut down. If I remove the script by doing: sudo update-rc.d -f local.autostart remove

Then ubuntu can restart once again.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Hangs On Shutdown Splash?

Sep 19, 2010

When I'm shutting it down it hangs on the splash screen. The screen then fills with white in a weird way; it's hard to describe but it's like watching film become exposed to air. It almost looks like there's something wrong with the screen but there isn't. I have no idea why it could be doing this.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A305D.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Occasional Hangs On Shutdown?

Feb 10, 2011

Shutting down sometimes hangs during the purple ubuntu shutdown screen. This especially happens when shutting down via ssh.

For example, sometimes I need to leave and wait for some operations to finish. Later, I ssh into the machine to sudo shutdown now. It tells me it's going down and disconnects me and all, but when I get home the shutdown screen is still on with a few white and red dots (those that are animated during shutdown).

When this happens, I do a slow Alt + SysRQ + R, E, I, S and U before I manually power down in order to keep my file systems happy.

Also, shutting down sometimes leaves me with a black unresponsive desktop. I can login through ssh and do a /etc/init.d/gdm restart and my desktop (or login screen) comes back.

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64. I was running X86 before and I had the same issues with the shutdown hang. After a clean install of x64 it took a few weeks before I got the same symptoms again. The black desktop thing is new with x64.

what to do the next time this happens in order to find out why it's happening?

Ubuntu :: Fglrx Hangs On Shutdown?

Apr 3, 2011

I'm not 100% certain, but I'm fairly sure that fglrx is preventing clean shut downsHardware is an ASUS E-35M1-I Deluxe, so fairly new, and I'm running Ubuntu natty.I couldn't find anything damning in the logs under /var/log, so I'm not sure where I can look to find the specific errors. All I know is that when I'm running with fglrx shutdown takes forever, as if it's waiting for the X server, and it just never shuts down cleanly, but when I run with the standard radeon driver everything shuts down quickly and cleanly.Sometimes when I tried to execute a "service slim stop" or "service gdm stop", the whole system would hang, and needed a hard reset.

General :: Explicitly Swap Out Main Memory Of A Suspended Process?

Apr 7, 2010

I run a memory-hungry process (mkcromfs) which consumes more memory than I have physical memory on my latop, so it is paging and swappin and thrashing all the time and loadavg is about 2 (compcache is already in use with usual swap partition as well), but slowly moving forward (Although I afraid it will finally try to allocate >2GB and crash draining 2 days of thrashing).

When I want to use the laptop for something else, I stop the process, start X server, firefox and other programs. The problem is that when I start Firefox the loadavg jumps to 10 and the system becomes almost unresponsive at all (long time to turn on/off caps lock, slow mouse cursor position updates, slow switching from X server to Linux console, slow login).

The stopped mkcromfs still holds a lot of memory (464.8 MiB and slowly falling) and moves it to swap only when more memory is needed for some other program, which results in a great slowdown.

How to tell the Linux to swap out this process entirely (e.g. I'm not intending to resume it in short term), possibly waking from swap other data? Also it will be useful to be able to specify the exact swap device to swap the given process out (for example, mkcromfs's memory is useless in ramzswap).

Update: Now I just write a 400-600M of data from /dev/erandom to tmpfs and it makes mkcromfs to shrink. Is there more proper way?
