Subject description: Now it won't boot all the way to desktop
 

Here is the issue. I have just finished installing puppy 4.30 on my inspiron 3200. Every things works great except for this.

As i was using my trusting code from another thread to get my sound working by inputting 2 lines into the local.rc file this happened.

as i went to restart everything was going fine. it booted. no sound. so ok i tried it again. this time things got weird.

as it was running thru the shut down to reboot it hangs. after it ejects the pcmcia card it hangs. it will do this if i shut down or reboot from x.

now the weird part. as i turn the system back on it boots into the prompt and wont run the x server until i give it the reboot command which brings it full circle and everything starts fine.

however, now everytime i boot or try to shutdown it does this hang.

any ideas?

Woah! Sounds like puppy has been at the catnip!

Perhaps you've mucked up some of the syntax in the local.rc file.

Show us the section you added complete with a few lines above and below it directly from your local.rc file.

PostPosted: Mon 05 Oct 2009, 09:08    Post subject: Same Issue, Improper Shutdown of Laptop  

Hi,

I have an IBM 380 XD with mmx, 64 mb of ram, a linux-swap, and Puppy linux 4.3 is installed as a full install to an EXT2 partiton on the Hard Drive.

I noticed that Puppy always hangs on shut down. When the button for shut down is selected the shut down begins but it hangs on the command line.

I waited quite a while but nothing further happened. The next time I booted via the power switch I got the # prompt and had to type xwin (enter) to get X to start. I thought it was a one time glitch.

I ran the sound wizard, and this further aggravated the problem although sound works intermittently when I play an mp3 stopping and starting (probably a separate issue). I now get a line regarding pcmcia during shutdown. I couldn't capture it so I'll have to post that later as an image since I'm at work. I'll take a photo of the code this evening and post it here.

The last line of code goes something like: pcmcia pcmcia 0 pcmcia...

There's a long list of other stuff in front of that.

I'll get the content of
Quote:
local.rc file
for you as well.

Note that if I choose "reboot" from the menu, puppy will shut down and reboot to the linux grub console with no issue. I suppose I could power off at that point but the heads would likely not be parked on the HD.

Question

Remarks:

Other than that, the things I'm using are working nicely. I like the clean fresh look, and I'm glad to be back using Seamonkey again instead of Sylpheed. The icons for the partitions at the bottom of the screen are very handy and don't overlap as they did in 4.2.1 The new puppy is pleasantly responsive too. I got dialup working right from the get go.

FWIW when it says "System Halted" it normally means that it has shut down correctly but just hasn't figured out how to switch off the power (assuming you have a new-fangled power supply that lets software turn it off).

The same thing happens with my desktop PC running 4 Dingo. I can shut that down with the power button. However in the case of this laptop running 4.3 on the next boot it allways drops out to the command line "#" and I have to type "xwin" and press enter to start the desktop.

I didn't have this problem with 4 Dingo, or previous Puppy's. The laptop will not "reboot" properly now and quits after the pcmcia... with only a flashing cursor.

I'm not sure what to do at this point. Maybe the o'l PC is just showing its age. Maybe I should try a special puppies 4.3 version with an earlier kernel, K2.6.25.16 Idea which according to Barry's notes is similar to 4 Dingo or Puppy 4.1.2 and compatible with some older hardware.

Hi,

I'm going to try this which has the K2.6.25.16 kernel comparable to the earlier puppy 4 series: http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-4.3/special-puppies/pup-430-k2.6.25.16.iso

I'll let you know later tonight if that takes care of the shut down issue.

No, the other 4.3 CD won't boot the laptop, it gets stuck on vmlinuz and the disk just spins. I thought where it had the older kernel it was a shoo in but, no.

I rebooted the laptop and ran xorwizard at the # prompt. then xwin. After reconfiguring X things seemed to go smooth, so I chose reboot from the menu. The reboot worked. Hopefully that's cleared out any bad settings. I'll find out next shutdown.

Ok, the live cd won't even make it to the puppy screen now, it just stops at ISO Linux... and gives the flashing prompt.

So, eject cd, reboot full install already on pc, fix xorg again, and look in /tmp, here's the contents of the xerrs.log

PostPosted: Wed 07 Oct 2009, 07:30    Post subject: Live CD issues, improper shut down and X won't start  

Ok, I'm less cross than I was last night. What follows is a bit of a digression but I return to the main issue:

So, what's the difference between Puppy 3 and the 4 series? I know Puppy 3 will boot from the CD without any issues however I've been getting issues with 4.

I've got an IBM 380 XD with 96 mb of ram, a pentium II with MMX, and I typically do a full install on an ext2 partition with an additional Linux Swap.

Typically with one of the 4 series CDs 4 Dingo (with Sylpheed for Mail), Puppy 4.1.2, Puppy 4.2.1, Puppy 4.3 my pc will come back with the error XXX-sfs not found, XXX being the version. In these cases there is already a previous version of a puppy full install on the pc.

If I enter one or more of the variations of the boot then "sometimes" the live cd will boot the computer:


puppy pfix=ram
puppy pfix=ram,no5
puppy pfix=purge

That's great and I can usually complete the upgrades.

However on occasion all I get is an ISO linux message and a flashing prompt "_" or I get the sfs not found message. Powering off and trying a reboot does nothing to improve the situation.

If I go back and boot from the Puppy 3 CD, and delete the swap and ext2 partition, and re-create empty partitions "sometimes" then the 4 Dingo series CD will start without a hitch, i.e. I get past the ISO Linux message and the sfs is found, the live CD boots.

This has nothing to do with the present issue, but I note that I'm not the only one to have issues with the sfs not found error. It does have bearing in the sense that when I tried to mount the Puppy 4.3 with the kernel K2.6.30... I got no farther than the ISO Linux message.

That can make you think you've got a FUBAR CD, but they are actually good. I check mine for a good burn.

I'm going to try the version of the live CD with the earlier kernel http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-4.3/special-puppies/pup-430-k2.6.21.7.iso and the small version http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-4.3/special-puppies/pup-430-small.iso and see what happens. However, I expect that I'll likely get the same issue with the live CD.

I wonder if Barry's notes about previous sfs have any bearing:


Quote:
A word of advice
if you try more than one .iso file, be sure to delete all traces of the previous one before testing the next. When you shutdown the first time and save the session to hard drive (to what we call the "pupsave" file), one or two files off the CD are also copied to the hard drive: pup-430.sfs (and maybe zp430305.sfs). The easiest way to cleanup is to boot the next live-CD with the boot parameter "puppy pfix=ram" (which starts up with Puppy running totally in RAM) and after bootup take a look on the hard drive and delete those previous files.

However, if you shutdown without saving a session, then the above problem will not occur. Thus, for quick evaluation of these live-CDs, run each one without saving the session, so nothing gets left behind on the hard drive.


This should apply only to the live cd. If the live cds continue to fail I might try first backing up any sfs I find on the full install and moving it to another non-linux partition and then try booting from the live cd just to see what happens.

- - - -

Returning to the original shut down and boot issue where x does not start - I would still like to run 4.3, but I'll have to try an earlier kernel. It would be nice to have shutdowns and restarts on the full install work properly but that means I have to get a live cd to work.

as it was running thru the shut down to reboot it hangs. after it ejects the pcmcia card it hangs. it will do this if i shut down or reboot from x.

now the weird part. as i turn the system back on it boots into the prompt and wont run the x server until i give it the reboot command which brings it full circle and everything starts fine.

however, now everytime i boot or try to shutdown it does this hang.

any ideas?


By the way I don't mean to hijack your posting, we're just having the same frustrating issue... I just wanted to contribute whatever info I could to show what's happening and how I'm dealing with it.

PostPosted: Thu 08 Oct 2009, 08:44    Post subject: What I'm doing now  

Notes

    I tried the live CDs with the later kernels but they woudn't boot the computer.
    4.1.2s live cd wouldn't boot.
    Puppy 3's live cd will boot, no issues.
    I confirmed the burns of the CD as good.
    All CDs were burned within Puppy 4 Dingo, using Pburn, on our Compaq Presario Desktop.


Deleting the contents of EXT2:

While 3's live CD was running I deleted the contents of ext2 (in order to test whether something in the full install was affecting the live CD) then tried a reboot using several of the 4.3 cds with various alternative kernels. However, it still wouldn't boot. I got stuck at vmlinuz each time.

The version of 4.3 I didn't try was the "small" version. I did download it though for a later try. This ol' geezer needed some shut-eye. My spouse is starting to look at me funny too. Smile

Since the ".30" kernel worked before but I had problems with shutting down and starting I decided to give 4.1.2 another try since I know that one did work a while back. True to form I tried 4.1.2 and bingo, it booted the live cd.

Intermediate Conclusion:

Basically on this particular PC the live CDs after 4.1.2 won't boot the PC. I'm not exactly sure what the conditions that contribute to that are. Could there be something in Linux Swap? I deleted what was in EXT2 but this may or may not have contributed to 4.1.2 booting. Clearly whatever the issue is it doesn't affect Puppy 3 at all. Maybe 96 mb of ram is not enough even with the swap to successfully run 4.3

What has worked on this PC, Proper shut downs and startups:

    Puppy 2.15 CE
    Puppy 3
    Puppy 4 Dingo
    Puppy 4.1.2 Retro
    Puppy 4.2.1 Retro (slow)


For the time being I'll be using 4.1.2 since its clearly the most stable version of Puppy on this particular PC. I'll probably create a separate partition for 4.3, if i can get one of the live cds to boot so I can test it further. I'm going to try the various live CDs I've made on our ol' Compaq Presario desktop to confirm they work/don't work.

EDIT: I don't think the ALSA sound wizard is what makes the shut down fail. That's not my experience.

I've run into a similar issue with 4.31.1 (actually Macpup Foxy 3) where my shutdown hangs if I have a nfs mounted FS. If I unmount it before I shutdown it works fine. It seems that there is pupsave issue when there is a mount on a directory in /mnt.

I plan to add an unmount to the shutdown script and try that.
