Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Sign-in Causes Total Freeze: 10.10

Nov 9, 2010

I installed 10.10 this morning from the live CD. Everything working perfectly whilst at home, but now I'm on the move I'm having troubles.At my parents' house trying to connect to their wifi. Wifi is on, their network is detected, I can go in and enter the WAP key and I get the strobing wifi icon in the top panel as though it's signing in, but after about 4 seconds I get a black screen and everything freezes. All that remains on the screen is the mouse pointer in its last position and a non-flashing cursor in the top left.

Debian :: Total System Freeze / What Is Causing It?

Jun 16, 2011

I'm experiencing constant system freezes, and was wondering which log file to view in order to determine what is causing it. I switched over from linux mint as it was giving me the same issues now being experience on my debian setup.

When my system does freeze, the keyboard is unresponsive (caps lock won't even turn on) and I have to use the power button to get out of it. The only thing that does work is my wireless mouse which I can still move around.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Sign In Causes Total System Freeze

Nov 14, 2010

Ubuntu boots fine with wireless turned off via the laptop wireless button on the case, and fine with wireless on but no networks remembered, but as soon as I try to connect to a network, I get the strobing wireless icon in the top panel and then the whole system freezes. It switches to a black screen with a non-flashing terminal cursor in the top left corner of the screen plus a frozen mouse pointer in the last position from when Ubuntu was working. If I force a power-off after this, which I have to, then unless I manually turn off wifi using the laptop button then Ubuntu never boots and I just get a black screen after the BIOS screen. I can connect to the internet via wired connection.

Ubuntu :: Repeating - Random Total Freeze - New Install - Troubleshoot

Oct 17, 2009

Ubuntu 9.04, all updates
Latest firmware, etc
abit SG-95 motherboard
2 GB Ultra DDR2
Intel Celeron 360 cpu
PNY GeForce 9500 GT video

Started 2 weeks ago, random and total freeze of system (video, keyboard, mouse).

Nothing useful in th log, other than it occurs at the same time syslogd restart show up in the log.

I don't even know where to begin, or how to troubleshoot the issue if nothing shows up in the log... could use some help, please.

Problem occurs with or without the nvidia drivers installed. Ubuntu or windows, same thing..connected or not connected to the internet

I've ran every memory test I can find, with no issues reported. HD seems OK. No other symptom that I can find, other than it croaking, usually when I'm in the middle of a broadcast or recording.

Is the only machine I have for now, I need to figure out what's wrong and replace it as quickly as possible, so I can get back to work.

Slackware :: Total Freeze After Installing Wicd Using Slackpkg

Nov 23, 2010

I have installed Slackware 13.1 without a problem and have a working wired ethernet connection. However I need to set up wireless but each time I try to do this using wicd I have a total system crash during the start up screens at the very last line before the welcome line appears.

Nothing works to resolve it, and I need to press and hold the start button and restart. I have checked the md5sum, installed the software again several times but the same happens each time which results in me having to reinstall.

I have installed wicd using slackpkg update, then slackpkg install wicd.

I have also tried downloading wicd from the slackware /extras folder and installing it on its own. Either way the same happens.

I have tried various manual approaches to setting up wireless following various links but again without success.

I now have a clean install again but am not wanting the same to happen.

Can anyone suggest what I might need to do?

I am using an intel Pentium 4, 2.53 ghz, 512Mb ram, GeForce4 MX 440.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Not Recognizing Blank DVDs

Aug 18, 2011

I'm trying burn an ISO to a DVD+R. but I cannot seem to get it recognized. The drive will read a CD-R that I have, but not the DVD. I have found quite a few threads about this, but none had any working solutions. Does anyone know what I could do? Could it be because the bottom of the disc is blue rather than silver?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Blank CDROM And DVDs No Longer Recognized

Mar 19, 2010

11.2, KDE4, GNU/Linux, latest updates

Weird, but suddenly just recently my system stopped 'seeing' any blank media. I have burned all sorts till now without problems, from K3B, Lemonrip, Handbrake, growisoft on the CLI, etc. Some errant update, perhaps?

I have done some digging ... added my user to cdrom, added an entry in fstab (K3B didn't like it so I deleted it), wodim -scanbus tell me I have '1,0,0 100) 'Optiarc ' 'BD ROM BC-5500S ' '1.03' Removable CD-ROM' ...

It can, however, read written Cds and DVDs without problems.

General :: Splitting Large Directory Over Multiple Blank DVDs?

May 19, 2010

I am currently trying to copy a directory of roughly 400GBs to dvd, have gotten myself stuck. I tried to tar and then split; however, I don't have enough room on my hard-drive to make a compressed tar and split it up and then burn to disk, so I need a way to tar the and compress the directory, split it, and burn to disk every 4.3GBs.

I went ahead and installed DAR as an alternative, as I hear it is designed for this type of task, but I can't figure out which way is heads or tails.

my OS is the newest version of ubuntu 10.

Fedora Installation :: F10 On Homebuilt Server - Screen Goes Blank And Freeze - The Blue Line Changing To White

Jun 4, 2009

Ive recently built a music server with the following configuration:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 processor
Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 Motherboard with 2GB ram
Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA Hard Drive
Samsung 22X CD/DVD Burner IDE

I would like to be able to run Fedora 10 (and Vortexbox, an application to burn and store CD�s) but have been unsuccessful in getting F10 to load. I am a novice Linux/Fedora user. I've been able to load and run Windows XP on the server with no problem. I have downloaded and verified both the x86_64 DVD and the x86_64 Live CD from the Fedora website. With the live CD, the last thing that appears before the screen goes blank and the install freezes is the blue line changing to white. I have tried several different SATA configurations , have turned off all non essential options in BIOS(ethernet, USB support), and have tried loading with fail safe bios settings.

Ubuntu Installation :: Freeze/Blank Screen After Screen Off 11.04?

May 4, 2011

I've been running Ubuntu 10.10 very smoothly for a while now. Decided to upgrade to 11.04 - managed to corrupt the hard disk the first time by letting the laptop hibernate part of the way through but reinstalled from a live CD of 11.04 and it's now working except for this issue.

If I shut the screen on my laptop (or press the screen off button) either the screen won't come back on or it will but frozen (I can move the mouse but not click on anything etc.) In this state music continues to play (from spotify under wine) and if I press my hibernate shortcut (power button) the computer hibernates, only to wake into the same situation. I've got a Dell Latitude D520, upgraded to a bigger hard disk and more ram - the ubuntu partition has 50gb. Windows is working fine.

Edit: I noticed a sticky thread which includes something about a blank screen but I think this is a different issue?

Ubuntu :: Screen Keeps Going Blank/flashing Blank?

May 17, 2010

When i use my computer (whether it's going online, typing, playing a flash game, or coding) I get these "Black Flashes" that are becoming longer and more frequent. A "Black Flash" is when my computer screen turns blank (but you can still see the backlight) and i have to press the NUMpad ENTER button, shake my mouse furiously, or click my mouse, which sometimes causes undesired actions, but gets me my screen back. sometimes the Black Flashes last a milisecond or 5 seconds or i have to hold the power button and restart because it won't come back on.

Ubuntu :: Files In /var/log Which Total 398 GB

Oct 31, 2010

What could be the cause of this?


I've deleted all the syslogs now, since it prevents me from using the system properly, and it seemed to keep expanding every time I freed space.

After deleting syslog entries:


Daemon.log seems to suggest it's an NTFS issue, as it's filled with copies of this entry(with different dates and times).

Ubuntu Installation :: Total Meltdown While Upgrading To 8.10?

Jan 11, 2010

I have a toshiba A135 laptop that has been running an old old version of Ubuntu, mainly because I didn't have it set up to receive automatic updates. I decided to upgrade it (to version 8.10), and in the middle of the upgrade, it froze. I had no choice but to reboot the computer. Once I did, it would no longer boot. I tried booting in recovery mode and "fix" the broken packages, and that didn't fix it. When I boot the computer it prompts me to enter my username and password, and then it sits at the blank pink screen forever and doesn't advance on into the desktop.

The next thing I tried was booting from an ubuntu 9.10 disk in hopes that once I was inside the computer, I could at least back up some files that I didn't want to loose on an external hard drive - especially if I was going to end up having to reinstall.

I am able to get to the alternative boot source screen and select boot from cd. Then I select "trial run of ubuntu 9.10 and it just sits at a black screen with the cursor flashing forever. Now I'm at a loss. I would like to be able to at the very least get into my computer and save some files to my external drive but I can't seem to able to do it.

Ubuntu :: Keep Running Total Of Data Up/downloaded?

Apr 1, 2010

Sometimes I connect to the internet via a "wired" connection (interface usb0), sometimes via a dial-up connection (ppp0).

Stupid annoying arbitrary data transfer limits imposed by ISP make me want to keep a running total of data uploaded and downloaded, so I can keep an eye on this and hopefully avoid using up my allowance. program that will keep this running total for me, across all interfaces? Or maybe someone has a script that can do this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 9.10 To 10.04 Total Failure?

May 27, 2010

I ran the upgrade from ubuntu 9.10 yesterday and it's now a mess. Is there something I can do to refloat this ship?

The file download stage seemed to be working OK: I was watching it when it only had three minutes left to go. I went away and came back a few minutes later and the screen had gone black. OK I thought, this must be all part of the plan, so I went away and came back over an hour later: still nothing. I decided, perhaps foolishly, to press the power button and boot it up.

Eek! Now I get the following errors:

mounting none on dev failed: no such device

chroot:cannot execute /etc/apparmor/initramfs: no such file or directory

Then the message Ubuntu 10.04 LTS cruncher tty1 and a login prompt. I can log in OK but don't know what to do next to recover the situation.

Rather alarmingly there is some activity on the system: lots of messages beginning with a number like [22.71309.

May 9, 2010

I am having the same problem, as soon as X tries to load my screen just goes blank. I have an ATI Radeon 9550.

Anyways I'll check back in later on if I have any new information I will post.

Ubuntu :: 9 Or 10 On Compaq Mini 311: Total Freezeing After Installation?

Sep 13, 2010

I have got a lap top (Compaq Mini 311), I tried to install Ubuntu 10.04, but after installing it I found only a black screen with a blinking whithe bar, and the keyboard does not work anymore.Looking across the net, I found this page , where is written that I have to install the previous version, do some operation and then upgrade it. Well, also with Ubuntu 9.10 and Ubuntu 9.04 I have got the same problem: total freezeing of the computer after the installation.

So, I tried to install ubuntu with wubi, as a virtual machine, but the problem is exactly the same.Somethimes, it may happen that Ubuntu loads, but it happens about in 1/50 cases.I installed it many times, everytime erasing the partition, but actually I have a boot menu with about 6 or 7 linux (not working), and windows, loading windows I can choose between win and ubuntu, if I choose ubuntu, I have 5 options: 4 are not-working-linux, and one of them is windows. If I choose windows, I come back to the previous menu: a loop on grub was done, but I don't know how.

Ubuntu :: Back-up Installed Packages For Total Reformat?

Oct 29, 2010

I just installed the 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.10 and though I like it an all, I'd like to put the 64 bit edition in in order to use all four gigs of RAM I have installed... To my knowledge, 32 bit computers should be able to handle 4GB RAM but I guess my address but is too small.

In any case, I'm developing a Ren'Py game and for both it and GIMP and a few other apps I could really use that extra gig.

Quick cut: I would like to back up the programs I've got installed so I can re-install them on the 64 bit version. Most of the things I've installed I've gotten from the Software Center, but for the things I've had to type into the terminal to install, well I haven't logged them anywhere so I'd have to dig up on Google again.

Ubuntu :: Swap Partition - Never Uses More Than About 20-25% Of The Total RAM Even If Have Several Applications Running

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on a computer with 2GB RAM. It seems that it never uses more than about 20-25% of the total RAM even if I have several applications running.

The question is - do I really need to have a swap partition if it is not being used?

SUSE :: Total System Failure ?

Sep 23, 2010

I was just trying to get used to everything and I noticed something in the task bar that said you have updates that failed to install (or something along those lines). So I opted to install them manually with YAST2 and during the installation some of the files were failing to download, I was unsure what to do with these files (their was a ton of them, I had to actually sit at my pc for over an hour because I couldn't let it go through on it's own due to all the failing downloads and installs) and so I just decided to skip them, everything seemed to be going along normally. Then my computer froze, so I restarted and tried to boot into opensuse and it kept freezing, (I even went to my brothers house to play the xbox with him for a while) and no matter how long I waited for it wouldn't boot into opensuse. I tried the failsafe mode and it just kept coming up with an error (I probably should have written the error down, I wasn't really thinking about that at the time) and after about half a dozen tries, decided to reformat everything all over again.

So with these failing downloads in YAST2, what am I supposed to do with them? If I retry they just keep failing, so the only other options are abort and skip, am I supposed to skip them or is that what caused this to happen in the first place?
