Ubuntu :: Monitor Out Of Sync During Boot And Shutdown (also Shutdown Hang)?
Jun 30, 2010
when my pc boots and shuts down my monitor goes into 'input out of range' mode for a bit between the gui and the text only phases of boot/shutdown.is there a way to fix this? or where to start troubleshooting?also, when it shuts down it hangs after coming back to the text only part
I am new to opensuse, coming over from debian based systems. However I am having an issue in which my system will not power off on shutdown. Restarts just fine. i get a missing error during shutdown, but there is nothing to relate the error to on that line. Then the shutdown procedes to The System will be halted immediately then hangs. The keyboard powers off and then thats it. All fans are still running. I have searched extensively on this forum and google.
How do I make a server wait on shutdown for a set amount of time?I tried making a service that just does Code: sleep 7m and made it first priority on shutdown but it seems to ignore itI'm pretty sure it runs... I'm currently testing that to make sure
I'm running V5.3 (newly installed) on an FJ E8020 laptop. The problem I have is when shutting down (*not* rebooting). NetworkManager fails to stop and after (during?) the postfix shutdown, the system seems to hang.I cannot access via another screen or remotely. I can't find any clues in the log files.
Code: Select allshutdown -h now reboot shutdown -r now halt init 0 init 6
And all hang on the same line. This is 100% reproducible. I am not actually running a virtual machine. I don't have qemu-kvm installed. I do have separate partitions on my system. I have a /boot, /, swap, and /home partition.
From looking at other posts: [URL] .....
Solutions tend to be across the board: not unmounting properly, acpi settings in grub, using a different shutdown command.
My fstab file is:
Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda2 during installation
and the result of Code: Select allmount is
Code: Select allsysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime) proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime) udev on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,relatime,size=10240k,nr_inodes=498135,mode=755) devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,nosuid,noexec,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000) tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,relatime,size=800408k,mode=755)
I have been looking for a lightweight bandwidth monitoring app and came across bmon. It does what I need. However it has an interesting way of exiting.
when it is running and you close it down it ask you 'Really quit (y/n)' and does not shut down. I am used to just right clicking on my desktop and selecting 'leave' when it comes to shutdown time.
A few times now the laptop hangs on shutdown if bmon is open. I guess it is due to the app asking if it should shutdown. Is there a way to disable the app asking or alternatively nuke it for sure with some script on shutdown.
I could search the relevant konsole running the app and go thru the steps to shut it down but sometimes I am in a hurry and it doesn't feel like the way to go anyhow?
I have installed a cluster computer with 10 nodes . The manufacturer is HP . All nodes and the master node have redhat enterprise linux installed in them . When I shutdown the nodes from the master terminal using "shutdown -h now" they get shutdown . But they dont get completely turned off . This issue bothers me when the power supply is given , all nodes boot up simultaneously generating a huge heat .
Thing to note : When we shutdown our PC they get completely turned off . When the power supply is given , a press on the Power On button is required to boot the system. But , why does it not happpen in the case of cluster? Is there any other way of completely turning off the nodes from the master terminal ?
Recently I installed vncserver (tigervnc) on my desktop. Ever since my computer refuses to shutdown normally. At shutdown the following message pops up: Quote: System policy prevents stopping the system when other users are logged in Then I have to enter the root password to shutdown. If I stop vncserver before, the computer shuts down normally.
Ubuntu will randomly pop up the shutdown menu and then shutdown.It seems to happen when im in firefox and typing and it has been difficult to replicate. I dont think it is a temp issue since watch sensors shows temmp of 40-50C. Someimtes it happens every minute someimtes i can go 10min without it happening.
Dell Inspiron 1525 ubuntu 10.04 (only os on system)
looking for a command that shutdown/reboot my ubuntu just same as process that happened when I press shutdown buttonIn fact I need to close all programs that are running and then PC shutdown (that happened when I press shutdown button).
Ever since I installed openSuse 11.2, my monitor wont turn off after I shutdown my computer.
The monitor light changes to orange, like its turning itself off. But then the light changes to green and the message "no signal detected" comes on - then the light turns orange. This cycle repeats untill I manually hit the power button to turn it off.
I booted to windows 7 (dual boot), shutdown, but it is still happening!
Like I said, this started happening immediately after I installed openSuse.
I did a live upgrade from 11.3 KDE and observe a following issue.When I press the shutdown button on the laptop it initiates the shutdown and shuts down fine but after a significant delay of time (something like 30 seconds). When I click the shutdown button in KDE it initiates the shutdown instantly. This was not the case in 11.3 where the shutdown worked the same regardless of the method that triggered it
I just recently installed ubuntu 10.04 and it works great! I got it to work with both of my printers, scanner, and zune! The problem is occasionally when I boot up ubuntu it stops and displays "[drm:rs400_gart_adjust_size] *ERROR* Forcing to 32M GART size (because of ASIC bug ?)"
Strange problems and I don't know if they are related. This is Ubuntu 10.4 32 bit on a Toshiba Qosmio x505-q875 laptop dual boot with Winblows 7. One drive bay is a 64GB SSD with windows, my root, usr, and swap partitions on it. The other is a 1TB drive with the home partition.
First Problem: After the Grub menu disappears (defaulting to Ubuntu) about 25% of the time nothing happens. No harddrive light blinking, no cursor, nothing. Everything just stops. I have to use the power button to reset it. Happens several times in a row occasionally. I've never had this happen with Windows.
Second Problem: Sometimes Ubuntu doesn't see the sound card at all. The speaker icon is grehyed out and when I go into sound preferences, it doesn't list any sound device at all. Rebooting fixes it. This happens maybe half the time.
Last Problem: This one happens when the sound doesn't work. When i go to shut down the system, the hibernate and suspend options are not in the shutdown menu, and when I do shut down, it only logs me off. Even at the log on screen, if I tell the system to shut down again, nothing happens. I can log back on it that means anything, but shutting down again has the same effect.
My system sometimes crashes on startup/shutdown. No idea what causes it This is my info:Kernel: Linux Mewtwo 2.6.32-23-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 07:54:58 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/LinuxUbuntu version: Ubuntu 11.04 (Note: This also happened BEFORE upgrading to 11.04)All the info i could get is in those pics (This happened on boot but I also have crashes on shutdown):[URL]I couldn't find those logs anywhere else in /var/log so I guess it happens before the log files are opened
I cant get a bootsplash image at all during boot/shutdown. Anyways I tried some solutions and kinda realized I dont have /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash. Could that possibly be it? And if so, how do I fix this. 10.04 Nvidia graphics Is there another solution to plymouth? I tried splashy and usplash wont install. So anyone else know a way.
We may edit some values for GRUB from /etc/default/grub to modify the way that computers boot up and shutdown.My question is how to make such modifications for boot and shutdown. For example, suppose I want to display two splashes one during booting and the other during shutdown or I would like to acpi=off during booting and then acpi=force during shutdown.
For the past few days, my Ubuntu server (it is a desktop that functions as a server, Desktop installed) have been very slow. Today, it stopped responding to ping, I could not SSH into it (once, I managed to come so far that it asked for my password, but I got timed out) and I could not connect via VNC.
I switched it off, to boot it up again. Post completed, and the screen went black, before the white text "Read Error" appeared on the screen. I shut it down again, waited a minute or so, before switching it back on. This time, the "read error" did not show up. The "text only" startup for Ubuntu showed up, so I hoped it was all okay. It turned out it wasnt. I have some pictures: http://yfrog.com/4pimag0127xj http://yfrog.com/jnimag0128bj The top lines are code...
Any ideas on what could be the issue here, and how to fix it?
I have a small but annoying problem... I have two scripts that I want to run automatically one at boot and one at shutdown. For the one at boot I tried to put it in rc.local or to create a file in /etc/init.d/ based on the others files in the folder but nothing worked... I need it to run system-wide and not once a specific user is logged in.
For the script at shutdown I don't know how to do it but it can be user specific or system-wide I don't really care. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64bits with kernel 2.6.35-24-generic
PS. I should add that when executed manually both scripts works perfectly well and I don't need those script to run continuously in the background, just run and quit.
I got a question, is there a script or program that automaticly boots my server and shutdown at give hours of a dayI want to have my server running from 7am till 8pm ever weekday (Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday)
I was stupidly compiling code on my netbook with 10% battery left. The CPU ate up my battery reeaally quickly and it did a hard shutdown while still compiling.When I boot up, the Ubuntu loading screen shows up for about two seconds and then it goes to a completely black unresponsive screen. I have a live install on my thumb drive, but I don't actually know what I need to do to fix whatever broke.Edit:Oo, something happened. When I pressed a key the screen filled up with a bunch of stuff I don't understand. But the last two messages are: [ 450.807328] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth
I had to shutdown the computer while upgrading from Lucid to Maverick as it froze(bug in X11) and then when I start the computer I get kernel panic messages. I used a LiveCD to backup my files and I was wondering if there is a way to log in or reupgrade the Ubuntu in some way from the liveCD.
I don't want to do a fresh install as there are a dozen things I had installed and configured in my system the last 1-2 years.
I got a question, is there a script or program that automaticly boots my server and shutdown at give hours of a day I want to have my server running from 7am till 8pm ever weekday (Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday) is this possible? I'm running a Ubuntu 10.04 server with Zentyal on
During boot-up and shutdown of Fedora-14-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso live USB, I just see some graphical stuff. What needs to be done so that the screen shows text messages about what's happening during boot-up and shutdown?
