you're probably running some tool (e.g., network-manager) which wants to take ownership of your network interfaces and changes the settings. You essentially have two options: Uninstall that tool Configure that tool so it doesn't fiddle with your wireless settings. If it is indeed network-manager, and you want to use that for your wireless settings, then ...

I don't have enough reputation to comment on this so i made it an answer I bet it has to do with your hard disk's heads or MBR and your problem happens a lot actually. Because of different standards some BIOS could read from an address above the MBR which could cause your problem and what will solve that is to try using parted and some W.D. drives have ...

The kernel initialization is only around some seconds. Most of the boot time is the starting and the initialization of the different demons and system settings. Manipulating the kernel won't help too much. Some ways to make this faster: As I understand, your software is essentially a daemon. Set up to start it as early as possible - because it requires ...

I see: mounting '/dev/sda8' on real root Shouldn't you have an entry in your fstab for /dev/sd8 for the / directory. I see all your other mount points other than your actual root.

Boot the alternate SD Solaris instance and add the line to its /rpool/boot/grub/grub.cfg file. Beware that the file might be overwritten by Solaris should your change something in the boot configuration of this Solaris instance using bootadm or similar.

Why this has happened I am no expert but from what I understand I think this issue is caused by a mistakenly placed bootflag. Whenever you are installing a linux OS for dual booting you want to make sure the bootloader is installed on dev/sda (i installed it on dev/sda5 which is probably why i got the grub rescue error) To fix this (it worked, at least ...

To start your service at the end, run this command update-rc.d homemadeserviceName defaults 99 This will add a link inside /etc/rc.d as, S99homemadeserviceName Upstart will start services in the order of their numeric suffix... S0, S1, S2... and finally S99 services.

You must also use the update-rc.d command. There is the remove option to remove it from the boot sequence. The script will remain in the init.d directory and you are still able to start and stop them with the service command.

Most likely, you should update the existing GRUB boot loader. The existing GRUB boot loader may have been installed to /dev/sda6 or, likely /dev/sda3 biosgrub 9 MB? Anyway, I am guessing that your first Linux distribution was Ubuntu. Therefore, do the following steps. Step 1: Boot and login to Ubuntu 14.04 (or your first Linux distro) Step 2: Open ...

Since /etc/rc.local is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel, it's not the correct place to add start scripts. I recommend to not use /etc/rc.local in any way. It's a reclit for early *nix times. Instead of that, create a startup script in /etc/init.d/name which accepts start and stop arguments to start or stop the deamon, process or the job: #! ...

Make sure your "/boot/grub/grub.cfg" lists the correct VG and LV. In my case, the VG is named "ssd_vg" and the LV is named "root_lv", so the grub.cfg file needs to reference "/dev/mapper/ssd_vg-root_lv" (note use of slashes and dashes!).

There are two parts in this. One is the grub part which is hidden by the boot screen. You can enable its output for textual consummation by changing the line GRUB_CMD_LINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub on Ubuntu machines and remove quiet splash: #GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" run update-grub after this for ...

Please check the boot options first. If boot option is set to UEFI then you will not be able to make your system dual boot, and you will need to go with the UEFI install options. Hope This will help you. Thanks.

Probably it depends on the video mode and zero page (struct bootparam, documented here, it also includes struct screen_info) setup prepared by a bootloader (GRUB) and BIOS. bootparam is passed to decompress_kernel() as the first argument. The actual function of debug_putstr() is __putstr() (Note that it's enabled only when CONFIG_X86_VERBOSE_BOOTUP is ...

So, here's what the link says: Maintaining ELILO If your distribution includes scripts to maintain ELILO automatically, and if those scripts work, you shouldn't need to do much to maintain this boot loader. As noted earlier, though, in my experience these auto-maintenance scripts are often worse than useless. Thus, you may need to keep your ELILO ...

What kind of filesystem is the USB device using? AFAIK most systems only support FAT32 (Some UEFI motherboards support more than that) - and then you must have the EFI bootblock in the appropriate location in the USB filesystem. FURTHERMORE - you are using a 32-bit ISO it appears. To boot with EFI, you MUST use a 64 bit version of a debian distro. If you ...

I've tried systemctl, update-rc.d and even editing the GRUB config, but nothing worked. Then I commented out the default display manager in /etc/X11/default-display-manager, rebooted and finally: the terminal!!!! It's as simple as that!

Simply doing grep 'menuentry' /boot/grub/grub.cfg lists additional entries that are not related to the actual kernel or OS versions. For instance, it lists if [ x"${feature_menuentry_id}" = xy ]; then menuentry_id_option="--id" menuentry_id_option="" export menuentry_id_option I would like to propose a small improvement to the method of searching ...

If you have tried everything in the bios and nothing works try using a few different USB keys, the problem may be the key and not the system. I work with a lot of embedded systems and one painful lesson that has been learned is not all USB keys are created equal. We had an issue where sometimes we could boot from USB keys and other times it would fail. ...

It's not uncommon for CD drives, especially in laptops, to age poorly and start to have read errors. Secure boot is a technology that checks for cryptographic signatures in boot devices. Many users report being able to install mint on systems with Secure boot enabled. That said, mint says to disable it in the release notes: ...

Looking at your image of the boot menu it seems you have 'Secure Boot' disabled, with 'OS Mode Selection' set to 'CMS OS' (Compatibility Support Module OS) but disabled by it's parent. I'd suggest enabling 'Secure Boot', ensuring 'OS Mode Selection' is still set to 'CMS OS', and then seeing what is in the 'Boot Menu'. Edit: You may also want to try ...

I would look for BIOS section called something like BOOT DEVICES. Sometimes, devices need to be prioritized before they can be chosen from.

The following works in case of Ubuntu. Commands might be slightly different in fedora (sorry, I am not a fedora guy!) but this will give you a general idea. You have to edit the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file and add the following entry. So, open the 40_custom file by: sudo nano /etc/grub.d/40_custom and add the following entry right after the last line. ...

Perhaps your bios is attempting to boot the USB drive first. Check your boot order in BIOS.

Yes, you can add a (i)PXE Launcher to Grub. For dpkg-based systems like Debian&derivatives: Only apt-get install ipxe is required I would expect other distros to have integrated it as well fairly comfortably. ==> A "PXE Boot" menu entry will exist on next reboot. In case you want to know inner-working-details: The post-install hook scripts ...

Have a look at ifplugd: ifplugd is a Linux daemon which will automatically configure your ethernet device when a cable is plugged in and automatically unconfigure it if the cable is pulled. This is useful on laptops with onboard network adapters, since it will only configure the interface when a cable is really connected. ifplugd ifplugd ...

If you specify allow-hotplug eth0 instead of auto eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces, then the connection will only be initiated by udev when something triggers it, instead of at every boot. Hopefully that will be when another device is connected to the other end of your cable...

There are always more than one solution to the problem. If you are with this machine always in one place, like home, then the easiest way would be getting rid of dhcp-client package, and set static IP address, mask, gateway. Supposing you don't need it, you would do something like apt-get remove isc-dhcp-client This will tell you first, if there are any ...

So using a combination of Lenovo's BIOS simulator (pretty neat: http://service.lenovo.partner-management.com/et.cfm?eid=1437) and Lenovo's manual for the machine, I was able to get the correct sequence of keystrokes to modify the "Boot Display Device" from LCD to analog VGA.

You can probably set bind interfaces only = no, so Samba will be reacting to changes in interfaces list. This shouldn't affect security. It wouldn't also hurt to include lo within interfaces line.

The problem has been solved, It was actually a screen problem(although I still don't understand how shutting down causes it to be more persistent). The connector at the back of the screen us shaky

Probably. Put the kernel into /boot/vmlinuz-<version>, put the modules into /lib/modules/<version>, run dracut /boot/initramfs-<version>.img <version> to generate the initramfs image, cross your fingers, and reboot. You say, "Also, I have no chance to make such experiment on my own", but of course you do. Boot up a Fedora VM, put ...

It depends on which architecture (i386, amd64, etc.), which media (CD/DVD/BD, USB-HDD, netboot, etc.), which release (jessie, wheezy, etc.), or which firmware (BIOS, UEFI, etc.) you want to boot to run Debian Installer. For Debian jessie ISO images for Intel PC BIOS based architecture, you will use isolinux boot loader. You can find menu entry auto in ...
