RedHat Freezing Randomly No Log
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 21, 2005
I've got a RedHat server that's frozen (as in no httpd, no ipop3d, no sshd) 5 times in the last 3 days. I cannot find anything in /var/log/messages or /var/log/secure apart from the gaps between the last successful connection and the command to reboot.
I did notice there are a lot of quota errors cropping up in /var/log/messages, but those have been there for quite a while.
The last thing to be done to the server was the open-ssl packages were updated about a week before it started freezing, but the server has been rebooted since then with no ill effect.
Has anyone got any idea of what could be going on?
Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop Freezing Randomly
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 28, 2013
I am experiencing random desktop freezes. The only way I can gain access to my system again is by rebooting the computer. After looking at the system processes via an SSH session I was able to see that the Xorg process was running quite high, using lamost 100% of the CPU time. I am wondering if it has something to do with my hardware, my GPU drivers specifically. Hopefully the below information will help.
My system information is as follows:
Ubuntu 11.10 on HP Pavillion keeps crashing/freezing randomly
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 26, 2011
Okay, so I joined the forum for this particular topic. I'm running a Dual Boot (Windows 7/Ubuntu) on my HP Pavilion g6 (will include DxDiag info), and I recently upgraded my Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) to 11.10 (Oneiric) and have also been having problems with random freezing. Sometimes I'll be able to log in and a few minutes later it'll just totally freeze up, no USB Mouse/Touchpad movement, keyboard strokes work and other times it'll just freeze up as I'm entering my password to log in. Now, Natty was working just fine with no problems. I also had the proprietary video driver activated before the upgrade as I tried doing a direct install of 11.10 and after installation, was getting nothing but blackscreen issues, so I went back a version and installed 11.04. Which installed and ran perfectly with no problems.
Should I just go back to and stay with Natty? Or is there a way to fix this issue? Thanks. FYI, I'm new to Linux/Ubuntu.
(if further info is needed, please just ask and I'll do what
Ubuntu 11.10 keeps crashing/freezing randomly
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 22, 2011
I have installed ubuntu 11.10 from a USB flashdrive on my computer. Every time when I go into Ubuntu at some point everything totally crashes. The screen goes black for a second and after that it all crashed. I can't use my mouse nor keyboard anymore (therefore pressing Alt Sysreq and entering REISUB isn't usefull). Everything compeletly crashes.
Precessor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40 GHz
RAM: 6,00 GB
System Type: 64-bit Operating system
Installed from USB-flashdrive
Installed Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit
I don't run many processes at once, even just going to my hotmail can crash the system. The crash normally occurst within 5 minutes after logging in.
I can film it and post my Ubuntu experience if that's any helpfull.
Thanks in advance!
Redhat Where is the log file for the initial boot process?

If I wanted to see which services failed on boot, where would I look on Red Hat? I would imagine /var/log/boot.log, but that file is empty.
System reboot with no log entry
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 30, 2011
I recently purchased a LeoX2 and I have a problem with it rebooting under load. Usually rsync will crash the system within a few minutes.
24G Memory Vengance Corsair
Western Digital 2TB SATA / 64MB C Drive
Ubuntu 11.04 64bit
When the system crashes / reboots there are no log entries in the dmesg or syslog that reference the crash.
Tested the memory with memtest86+and after many passes (8) I found 2 bad chips. I'm assuming after heat built up they started failing.
I've replaced the bad chips but the system still shuts down so I've tested the processor with mprime and watched the sensors for heat issues (watch -n .5 sensors) but the heat isn't building up past 70C and the system usually reboots within 15 minutes.
I have a request into support. Any testing options or points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
logrotate issue command even if no log rotated
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 12, 2012
Hi, I have a logrotate that works fine except when there are no log files to be rotated. I need to run a command every time the logrotate is attempted regardless of whether anything was rotated. Lastaction, firstaction, postrotate and prerotate only appear to work if at least one log file was rotated. Any ideas?
Fedora 14 freeze on start up with NO log entries at all
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 25, 2014
OK OK, I know it's an old distro but I can't install a newer one since all programs running in
there ain't tested fully with later versions. I also use that as my gateway so I need it bad.
It has been running OK until this version of the distro was new without any flaws except some
bad block on some disks that I replaced.
On March 12th I woke up in the morning and it didn't run, I turned the screen on and saw some
weird printing on it and lots of it. No 'kernel panic' though but nothing worked, not the
virtual terminals, couldn't even reboot with the K/B, pushed reset and it was up and running
again. I can't show you the print out since it no longer appear.
The next day March 13th at about 8PM I lost the network and I figured the gateway was F/U again so I turned that screen on and yep,
there it was again. I first thought that it was some boot disk problem so I took it out and checked it on another machine,
everything seemed OK, could open the partitions up, did a fsck and no errors.
Redhat 8 has no DVD player?

why didn't Redhat 8 install a DVD player, like Xine or something...I know Mandrake 9.0 installs it by default?
no log out dialogue when using keyboard shortcut
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 23, 2008
This is a weird problem.
I can not trace back what if any changes I made to cause this.
When I hit ctrl+alt+delete to bring up the log out dialogue nothing shows up. I've tried a variety of shortcut keys, nothing.
The dialogue does show up when I select "Quit" from the main menu.
