Ubuntu Hardy tips & tricks

October 3, 2008 by Oğuz Yarımtepe

If you have a freeze problem during startup and the splash bar is not proceeding, edit the grub screen by pressing the “e” button on the keyboard and remove the “splash” and “quiet” parts from the kernel parameters to see what is going on during the kernel boot process. At my situation the problem was related with r8169 module. I had installed Ubuntu Hardy 64bit desktop edition to my laptop. When i checked the messages i realised that just after r8169 loading, boot proces was freezing. So by playing kernel parameters like adding pci=noacpi pci=nopci, somehow i managed to reach the desktop and blacklist the r8169 by adding the line “blacklist r8169”. Then recreated the initramfs by update-initramfs -u. At the next reboot the problem was removed.

    There is something wrong with your twitter updates in your sidebar. Every time I refresh this page it asks for my twitter login. And the way it asks for it forces this tab to become focused, I opened this in a new tab to read your post when I was finished with the page I was on, but twitter forced this page to come up now.
