• \[SOLVED\] Openbox -- Booting hangs


    Hi,

    My Openbox installation sometimes hangs during startup.

    It says

    /dev/sda10 clean 16,***/55*** files ******/******* blocks

    ( **** I do not remember exact number )

    Then I have to switch off my laptop and switch on again.

    Then again sometimes it hangs or otherwise it says

    recovering journal

    again says
    /dev/sda10 clean 16,***/55*** files ******/******* blocks.

    after that it startsup normally or once in a while hangs again, then again I have to switch off and switch on laptop again. In the beginning, it used to happen once in a while. That time I ignored it. But now it is happening quite frequently.

    Thanks/

  • Hi,

    Please post the journal log after having to reboot because of this issue. You can export the log to a file in /tmp and compress it for attaching it using the following commands:

    cd /tmp  
    sudo journalctl -b 1 \> journal.log  
    sudo chmod 777 journal.log  
    tar zcvf journal.tgz journal.log
    

    Cheers!

  • :exclamation:*Sorry, this attachment is unavailable.*Thanks for reply,

    Attaching file.

  • Hmm…I did see a couple small issues but nothing stands out as the cause of your issue

    Once other thing? What are you using qpdfview for? Is it configured to autostart? If it is, disable it.

    Cheers!

  • :exclamation:*Sorry, this attachment is unavailable.*I have saved 3 logs. Attaching it.

    I use qpdfview to read pdf files. I used to use evince. But with evince scrolling is not smooth. It does not scroll properly with evince. This is why I installed qpdfview. I saw in log there some are errors for qpdfview.

  • I have uninstalled qpdfview now, will post if it still hangs. It does not hang on every boot. It hangs randomly. So will let you know if it again hangs.

  • Okay let me know how it goes. I did check the logs and its always immediately after the qtpdfview errors when the system is rebooted.

    Cheers!

  • I uninstalled qpdfview. But it still hanged few times. Then I referred here [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Boot_debugging][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Boot_debugging][1]

    I added verbose and debug kernel parameter using grub-customizer. Now I managed to get info where exactly it hangs.

    Here are are the messages

    started udev Kernel Device Manager.
    mounted /tmp.
    Monitor-mwait will be used to enter C-1 state.
    Monitor-mwait will be used to enter C-2 state.

  • Okay, lets take a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and Xorg.0.log.old

  • Attached file. :exclamation:Sorry, this attachment is unavailable. I suspect it’s video driver. How do I check if I am using open source free driver or intel’s proprietary driver?

  • We need to look at the log from Xorg from when the system hangs. The next time it hangs, reboot and then grab Xorg.0.log.old (that should be from the hang)

    This may be related…try installing these: presentproto and dri3proto

    Cheers!

  • :exclamation:*Sorry, this attachment is unavailable.*logs after hanging

  • This one sure is not making it easy for us
    sudo pacman -S acpid
    sudo systemctl enable acpid[/code:16fz428l]Now the next time the issue occurs, reboot and grab the xorg logs AND journals 0, 1, & 2.

    Cheers!

  • It was hanging very often, so I removed Antergos and tried to reinstall it. But the installation takes lot of time and my internet disconnects because of power failure in my area. I ended up on grub-rescue prompt. So I tried to install Manjaro linux. But it used to hang on every boot. So I decided to install ArchBang. Finally I have come to know what was the problem of hanging at boot time. The problem was Broadcom wireless driver.
