Ubuntu :: Grub2 Unable To Halt (shut Down)?

May 31, 2010

I am trying to add an entry to grub2 to turn the computer off using the 'halt' command, but grub2 freezes and I have to manually reboot. I have tried both 'halt' and 'halt --no-apm', both with and without 'insmod halt' first. The 'reboot' command however works fine (even without 'insmod reboot') so it doesnt seem to be an acpi/apm issue. This was all tested at grub2's command line, so there isnt any problems with syntax in the config file. The laptop I am trying this on is an Acer Aspire One, I am using Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 (Lucid), and a more or less default config for grub2 (GNU GRUB 1.98-1ubuntu6) as far as modules are concerned.

OpenSUSE Install :: Dual Boot With Grub2 - Only Screen Shut Down

Mar 1, 2010

I'm using opensuse 11.2 and a week or so ago it suddenly stopped shutting down the computer, or rebooting. It shuts the screen down and that seems to be it, so I have ti switch it off. However a day or so later it began to reboot when asked, but still won't shut down. I'm dual booting it with Unbuntu 9.04 using grub2, but it's been that way for many months without problems.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Unable To Shut Down?

Apr 29, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 (loving it so far) and just toying around with it a bit. However, whenever I try to shut it down or restart it takes an abnormally long time. Unfortunately I have not waited long enough for it to shut down properly (waited 10 mins) and it still hasn't turned off

General :: Unable To Properly Shut Down After Bios Update

Sep 6, 2010

I have a bit of a weird problem, I have updated the BIOS for my motherboard (MSI K9A2 Platinum V2) to version 1.B which updates the CPU AGESA code. After the update I was unable to properly shut down linux (gentoo linux 64 bit, kernel 2.6.34, kde 4.4), when I try to do a shut down (tried it from kde and from the command line as well with the same result) the computer shuts down but then it starts up again, only this time the keyboard doesn't work. I think that somehow, the way the pc shuts down has changed (maybe linux is sending the wrong commands in order to shut down) because from windows 7 I can shut down the pc properly.
I have tried to recompile the kernel (I thought that maybe I forgot to add support for some ACPI, APM or CPU options that could affect the shut down procedure) but with no luck.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Running F11 I586 On Laptop / System Shut Off (not A Normal OS Shut Down, But A Sudden Power Off Without Warning)?

Oct 13, 2009

Offlate I installed F11 i586 on my laptop. F11 shares the hard disk with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The problem is that when running F11 (or even Ubuntu), my system shut off suddenly(not a normal OS shut down, but a sudden power off without any warning). This could have been a hardware trouble(heating) but it doesn't happen with Vista.
Machine specifications:
Maker: Toshiba
Model: Satellite L305D-S5881
AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor RM-70
3072 MB 800 MHz SDRAM
I don't want to open up my machine unnecessarily, if it isn't a hardware issue.
I am not sure how to verify the bit length of the machine and the OS and does it create a compatibility issue ?
Your advise would be highly appreciated.

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Unable To Boot XP - Operating System Not Found

Aug 30, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix (10.04) on my brother's Acer Aspire One (751h) netbook, set up to dual boot with XP Professional. The initial install was successful, with both OS's booting correctly. However, after a series of updates and module builds (this machine has the Poulsbo chipset, still somewhat of a mess), Grub2 is now unable to boot XP, displaying the error "Operating system not found."

To be clear, grub works properly (aside from not booting XP), so the MBR is intact, although I've rerun grub-install to be safe. Restoring the windows MBR (using testdisk) boots XP happily, but of course ignores the ubuntu installation. I also had testdisk rebuild the NTFS boot sector, to no change - grub still doesn't work, the windows MBR does. Using the grub console, I can "root (hd0,1)" and see files on the XP partition, but "chainloader +1; boot" again fails with the same error. The ubuntu install can likewise mount the NTFS partition with no problems.

Given the fact that switching the MBR fixes the issue, I'm suspecting a Grub2 configuration problem. However, the simplicity of "root (hd0,1); chainloader +1; boot" leaves me stumped as to what that could be. Also, the error text "Operating system not found" is suspiciously identical to my BIOS's error message when attempting to boot from a non-bootable medium (as I found out while attempting to make a bootable usb stick with my mac).

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Hide Grub2 Menu At Startup?

Apr 8, 2011

I have serious problems hiding the Grub menu at startup.

What I want to do is simple boot into the first (and only) item without showing the menu to the user.

I have removed everything on the system so the only option is "GNU/Linux, with Linux 2.6.32-30-generic" in the menu.

My /etc/default/grub is like this:



No matter what I do I always get the same result:

The menu is shown and no countdown!

It's like grub isn't reading the changes of /etc/default/grub

why I'm unable to hide the menu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Add A Manual Grub2 Menu Entry?

May 6, 2011

Having just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 from 10.10 I noticed that my Grub menu had not upgraded. The upgrade was not as straight forward as it should have been as the PC hung at the end of the installation resulting in a reboot and running dpkg in safe mode to get it all back up and running.

To fix the incorrect grub menu.lst file which was not updating, I renamed the original file and then ran sudo update-grub. It generated a new and correct file. However, my Windows partition was not listed as a Grub menu option.

Debian Installation :: Unable To Use Grub2 In Squeeze AMD64

Feb 7, 2011

The way I usually boot Linux distros, and this has worked for every distro I have tried up to Kubuntu 10.10, was to install Grub2 on an extended partition, run "dd if=/dev/sda5 of=linux.bin bs=512 count=1", and then adding that bin file to my Windows boot.ini. What usually happens after is that I get the Grub2 menu after selecting it from the Windows Bootloader.

The problem is, with the latest Squeeze AMD64, all I get when I do this is a static cursor and the computer is frozen and I have to hit the reset button.I mounted the Linux partition with Ext2IFS (mkfs.ext3 -I128 /dev/sda5 to get 128KB inodes), and I can see that the Squeeze installer did indeed install Grub2, because I can see the files in their respective directories.

Installation :: Unable To Dual Boot Grub2 Auto Os Prober

Nov 3, 2009

Problems with dual boot, grub2 auto os prober

Drive #1 (sda) Master CS Ubuntu 9.04 grub upgraded to grub2 version 1.96
Drive #2 (sdb) Slave CS Ubuntu 9.10 grub2 version 1.97 /boot is (sdb1) root is (sdb5)

grub2 is installed in /boot (sdb1) and the mbr of (sdb)

I want to be able to boot drive #2 from drive #1 grub menu at boot time. I have run ´┐Żupdate-grub and it probes and finds (sdb5) and creates a new grub.cfg called grub.cfg.new in the /boot folder, but the new cfg file does not show (sdb5) or (sdb) it shows all other changes that I made such as splash screens and they are working. How do I get it to recognize drive #2 with Ubuntu 9.10. I can boot each drive independently of one another and I can boot 9.04 with 9.10 if I swap the drives around. And run update-grub The auto probe is working in the Ubuntu 9.10 and may be working partly in the 9.04.

This may or may not be a problem, but is a pain anyway. When I run update-grub in 9.04's grub version 1.96, it does not change anything in the current grub.cfg it does make a new file called grub.cfg.new I have to go into /boot/grub and change grub.cfg to old and change grub.cfg.new to grub.cfg I do not have this problem running the same command in Ubuntu 9.10's grub. It finds changes and os's and automatically updates the current grub.cfg

Ubuntu Networking :: Grub2 Is Unable To Deal With Mounting The Samba Shares On Lan At Boot Time

Oct 15, 2010

I've been having terrible trouble with my 64bit Desktop v10.04 ever since I upgraded it. Has been a long battle - but I think I have it down to just one remaining issue which I suspect is more related to the network than to the upgrade. So I'll ask here also... The old system always used grub as the bootloader, and has always worked just fine. I have now had to do a complete fresh install, which incorporated a change to grub2 (first time I have used it).

It would seem now, that grub2 is unable to deal with mounting the samba shares on my lan at boot time. The boot always fails, dumping the user to the cli rather than the gui desktop. The error given indicates that the network is unreachable. Most users of the system have given up on Ubuntu altogether because of this, and fallen back into the clutches of the evil empire (the machine dual boots XP). If I log in, and manually startx to open the desktop, the network is there, and the shares are mounted just fine. Everything seems to be working ok - but for crashing out of the boot process with network errors. The fstab file follows, in case there is some cause there I'm not seeing (I have edited names and passwords prior to posting)...

Ubuntu :: Grub4dos Halt Doesn't Work?

May 29, 2010

Anybody here know anything about grub4dos? I'm building myself a multiboot flash drive using grub4dos and one of my commands on the menu, obviously, is shutdown. This should be simply "halt" but every time I launch that command, or if I type it into the grub4dos command line, the computer locks up and I have to do a hard reboot.

Ubuntu :: Halt Followed By Filesystem Error, Recurrent?

Aug 30, 2010

The other they my laptop totally halted in the middle of a luks-encrypted external-hd copy operation or such.After a hard poweroff and reboot, the linux procedure would halt at the

Code:(initramfs) line and couldn't be pushed further. I booted with a LiveCD, ran sudo fsck /dev/sda1 and answered yes to a bundh of filesystem-fixing prompts. Yesterday the it happened again: freeze then incomplete boot with same error message. Do you have an idea of what can be causing it? How can I diagnose this problem?

I just accidentally clicked on my ubuntu drive when I was in PCBSD Unix and I had somehow glanced at a few things. When I tried, it didn't really let me in as much, but it said something about an access error and denial when I looked with the KDE Dolphin file browser.All I did was leave the rest alone and reboot but then got this when attempting to access Ubuntu:----------init: hwclock main process (366) terminated with status 29564.General error mounting file systems.---------- also got back into BSD and formally unmounted and rebooted again, but to no avail.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Totem Comes To Halt In 30 To 45 Minute Video

On 10.04 64-bit, I've been noticing this weird error where totem comes to a halt after ~3/4 of playback in a 30-45 minute video, then it starts to play back again after about 10 seconds but it's a bit choppier. What could be causing this or how I can track down the issue? I'm running a nVidia GTX 275 with nividia-current drivers (195.36.24) if that helps diagnose anything.

Fedora :: Dual Booting - Grub2 To See F15 Or Be Installed Using Grub2?

Jul 11, 2011

I installed Fedora 15, which was my first real departure from Debian based Linux OSs. I absolutely love the new Gnome 3, and was able to configure F15 to work as I wanted it to. On rebooting I realized that there was no boot loader screen, that F15 just booted and didn't give me a choice as to which OS I wanted to use. Eventually I was able to configure grub to let me see the boot loader and added my old boot loader as a choice. This worked well, maybe not a perfect solution, but it worked. This weekend I installed LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) to another HDD. LMDE uses grub2 and after the install F15 was not recognized.

Two questions: Is there a way for grub2 to see F15? or Can F15 be installed using grub2? I really don't mind re-installing from scratch.
