Re: System will not halt

Another syslog. I removed and reinstalled mdm prior to this, and I am no longer getting mdm warnings, but I suppose this could be coincidence. Jul 19 17:05:01 xxxxx CRON[7408]: (root) CMD (command -v debian-sa1 > /dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1) Jul 19 17:09:01 xxxxx CRON[7660]: (root) CMD ( [ -x /usr/l...

Re: System will not halt

Here's a bit of /var/log/syslog. I shut down at 09:02:00. This is a case where the fans started spinning up and I had to force a shutdown.

Re: System will not halt

Note: The file to look at on Mint is not /var/log/messages, but /var/log/syslog. On systems starting with Mint 18.x you can also use the commandline journalctl -b or journalctl -b number , where you replace "number" by -1, -2, -3 etc, depending on how many sessions you wish to go back. Default is 0...

Re: System will not halt

yeah - - it would help to know, which kernel, it is that you are using, you can determine this from the Boot Menu, and before you hit Enter to bypass the Boot Timer. - assuming that you are getting some Boot Menu - - if not, hold down the Shift Key during the boot-up. I'm currently using 4.4.0-130-...

Re: System will not halt

If you are not even getting a /var/log/messages file you are not booting properly. This really sounds like a hardware fault. When I you say the system goes to 100%, as illustrated by the fans. This makes me think you have a drive issue. The CPU is in a wait state for IO on the drive will cause this...

Re: System will not halt

Karl, Thanks for the help. I actually made the changes in /etc/default/grub so that they persist between reboots. I changed GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" and ran 'sudo update-grub'. I rebooted twice to verify that this is working as expected, and it is --...

System will not halt

For a few weeks now I have not been able to cleanly halt my LM 18.3 system. The system goes to a black screen, but will not shut down. I cannot open a terminal with Ctrl-Alt-F1, which would seem to indicate that Linux is no longer running at this point. I have to press and hold the power button to f...

Cycling MATE Terminal windows with Alt-Tilde

I have found that cycling through mate-terminal windows with Alt-Tilde does not work correctly with LM 18.1 MATE. For example, I can have three terminal windows open, but Alt-Tilde will only cycle through two of them. What I have discovered is that terminals opened with Ctrl-Alt-T create a new proce...

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Did I just make a fool out of myself?
You may have made a mistake, but I don't think you went that far. :wink:

I'm kind of liking wicd, so far. It just works and doesn't make a nuisance of itself, which puts it way ahead of most software nowadays.

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

Hi Damien,

I'm using WIFI, via a router that I cannot reconfigure (it's not mine). So I'm trying to solve the problem by configuration changes on my system.

Thanks,

Ted

Re: Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

I've not yet been able to solve this problem, but I did find a workaround. I switched to wicd and created the following script: $ cat /etc/wicd/scripts/postconnect/wicd-reset-dns #!/bin/sh echo "# Generated by /etc/wicd/scripts/postconnect/wicd-reset-dns\n\nnameserver 208.67.222.222\nnameserver 208....

Unable to disable DHCP DNS lookup

I would like to disable DHCP DNS lookup because my ISP is intercepting and redirecting lookups. I would like to switch to OpenDNS, but have been unable to get this to work. My /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf (comments omitted, except where relevant): option rfc3442-classless-static-routes code 121 = array o...
