Watchdog during bootup causing reboot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 22, 2001
Running RH 6.2 on a server with dual Pentiums (on an SBC), 1GB RAM, dual IDE HDD, disk-on-chip.
During boot, watchdog loading causes a reboot. By using interactive set-up, I can skip over this and the system boots fine. Any hints??
errors 'no suitable mode' and 'unkown command 'terminal'' on during bootup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 22, 2010
I just finished installing Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dimension L1000r. During bootup, I get the following:
error: no suitable mode found.
error: unknown command 'terminal'.
Surprisingly, after a delay of about a minute, the computer continues to boot up, and seemingly works fine. Regardless, I am sure these errors will come back to bite me in the future, so I would like to resolve them.
Any suggestions for what to do? I did look at other threads, but frankly, the solution seemed a bit over-complicated, and i believe the context of the other user's situation was that the computer wouldn't boot up, mine does.
errors during bootup from block./genhd.c:1573
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2013
I found this error in dmesg after the last boot.
Immediately before this message I see the mount of an external software RAID array of eSATA disks. The filesystem mounts and fscks run with no issue - this is the only indication of problem. This occurred after the last kernel update and reboot.
This is Dell PE850 hardware with a non-dell Silicon Image Port Multiplier compatible PCIe eSATA card installed.
Can anyone hit me with a clue on this?

Auto Mount Drives at System Startup
Ubuntu is capable of reading and writing files stored on Windows formatted partitions, but partitions must be 'mounted' before they can be accessed each time you start up the system. With these steps, you can auto mount the drives or partitions without the need to manually mount them for access.
Install Storage Device Manager if it has not been added.
Go to Applications (or Main Menu) > Ubuntu Software Center.Enter pysdm in the Search Box.Select Storage Device Manager, click the "Install" button.Go to System > Administration > Storage Device Manager.Extend the list of sda and select the sda you want to auto mount, click 'OK' to configure.Click the "Assistant" button
Change Screen Resolution During Bootup?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 12, 2011
I would like to install Zenwalk on my ancient Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop. I have successfully made a bootable flashdrive of Zenwalk and intend to boot with the aid of “Plop” as my CD drive is toast on this machine (I have done this many times with Puppy). I have actually successfully booted this once except that the default screen resolution is unusable. If I remember correctly (not sure I do), I believe the optimal resolution with Puppy Linux is 740/1280 or there abouts. Can someone give me step by step directions to either adjust the resolution in Xorg or switch to Xvesa during boot-up? Please note that I am a newbie with no expertise using the command line. All help is appreciated – thanks!
Suse 10 Display Problem During Bootup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 4, 2006
Distro: Suse 10.0
PC: P3, 450Mhz (old Gateway machine)
Video Card: ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP 1x/2x
Monitor: Dell 1505FP (analog)
I am have a very irritating problem during boot-up. The Grub bootloader displays properly and allows selection of operating system. The screen then displays the error message “1. Analog Input. Cannot Display This Video Mode”. This continues until the process reaches the screen which shows the 3 symbols for tools, desktop, and KDE, which displays properly. Everything then works fine until I turn the machine off, when I get the same error message from the monitor during shutdown.
The monitor can handle a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768, so I assume that the initial phase of boot-up is trying to use a higher resolution. I have tried re-setting the monitor in Sax2, with no success. I have also examined /etc/x11/xorg.conf, which seems to have the correct information for the display.
Although this problem is not stopping me using the system, it is drivin

I'm trying to setup Ltsp under Ubuntu 8.10, I follow the instructions from the LTSPFatClients page and used the fat client plugin to setup the image, but whenever I logon the fat client machine, the message "Your home directory is listed as: '/home/user1' but it does not appear to exist...." any ideas?

Macbook Pro 6,2 screen is garbled during bootup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 30, 2013
This concerns problems booting amd64 Debian 7.1.0 on
the 2010 Macbook Pro (model A1286) wherein the screen becomes garbled,
and stays garbled, right after the i915 driver prints a message like
"Attempt to get IRQ failed. Aborting."
No login prompt is reached.
The story: I decided to put a spare hard drive into my 2010 Macbook Pro 6,2
in place of the main drive that has OS/X on it, so that I could
I booted up the first Debian AMD64 installer CD and installed the OS.
I rebooted and it appeared Debian was booting properly when suddenly
the lower half of the screen became garbled.
I looked closer at what the kernel is printing out.
First it says i8042: No controller found. (The Macbook Pro does not have PS/2.)
Then it prints some mundane stuff, then it says "Found HC with no IRQ.... error -19".
Then everything's OK, I enter my password to open the encrypted partition,
and then the i915 driver tries to load and it prints
MySQL does not start automatically during bootup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 29, 2009
I have installed the servers below:
Apache, PHP and MySQL
When I ran phpmyadmin immediately after boot-up, the error message #2002 about the configuration of socket was shown. However, there would be no problems if I started mysql manually with "sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start" before running the phpmyadmin. Is there any way to let the mysql server start running automatically during boot-up?
[SOLVED] (k)ubuntu 11.10 falls into busybox during bootup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 16, 2011
I have ASUS Rampage 2 Extreme motherboard with JMicron JMB36X PATA controller.
Following devices are connected to the motherboard:
1. Seagate Barracuda
2. Pioneer DVD-RW
1. Intel SSD 320
Kubuntu 11.10 64-bit (kernel 3.0) is installed on SATA SSD.
My problem is: kubuntu hangs up during boot-up if two devices are present on PATA bus, and started normally otherwise.
Note that Rampage 2 has only one PATA port. Barracuda was connected only after installing kubuntu.
dmesg looks fine - none of errors nor warnings are present; but end of dmesg output contains some jmicron_pata messages.
Master/slave jumpers changing has no effect, as well as IDE/AHCI/RAID modes switching in BIOS.
Also note that Slackware64 13.37 (kernel 18.104.22.168) works fine with all hardware configurations (as well as Windows 7).
What is my problem? I'm not sure that in JMicron.
Thanks in advance.
