Cleaning files and recovery journal after boot

Hi,
Thanks a lot for all the great work that you guys put into making Ubuntu Mate a very good OS, I have been using Ubuntu Mate for the past few years without any issues but the latest version 16.10 is giving me trouble. Every time I turn my laptop on, my screen goes black for a few minutes then, I get a message about a dev file cleaning and sometimes my laptop reboots and I get another message about a recovery journal or something like that. I have waited more than 5 minutes, dark screens and a few reboots until I get to the login screen. I never had this issue before with the previous Ubuntu Mate versions, Can I get rid of this cleaning and recovering journal so when I turn my laptop on I get to the login screen?
Thank you very much in advance for your reply and for making Ubuntu Mate a very good user friendly and free OS.
Best Regards,
Daniel

Hi @bddiaz,

have you run your updates?:

Hello Daniel,

First off it is NOT normal that your laptop reboots in loop like that. Actually, when a filesystem is done cleaning up by the fsck program it should resume it’s regular booting.

Therefore it your laptop just refuses to colaborate I am ready to bet it’s because there is a physical issue with it, most probably with the hard drive.

Do you ever manage to have your system booted into a “stable” state? (One that allows you to write commands in it?) If so, open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and type “dmesg”. Possibly some errors will pop-up. In doubt, feel free to paste the entire output here.

Cheers,

If you find that it is your hard drive causing the problems, I recommend that you run Spinrite on it.

Hey @mrjoeyman

Ewwww @ Spinrite. That’s commercial software :stuck_out_tongue:

I would rather go for dcfldd which a dd enhancement which will put all the stress needed on your device.

Cheers,

Yes and well worth it :nerd_face:

Hi guys,

Thanks a bunch for your posts. I will try it during the weekend and post the outcome here. I doubt that this is a hardware issue, for me, the issue is with the software. I have a dual boot Windows 7 Starter and Ubuntu Mate 16.10. Windows 7 boots fine, even when I was on Ubuntu Mate 15.10, the laptop worked fine, no issues at all like the one I am having with 16.10.

I am able to get into Ubuntu since eventually the system doesn’t do the cleaning or the recovery journal and then I am able to login. When I get the dark screen and the rebooting, I press the power bottom, shut the computer down and then the next time, I go into the login screen. However, it is kind of annoying to do this pretty much everyday, this a lot more often that I would like or chose to.

I have updated 16.10 and the issue remains. I even went back to 15.10 and it was fine, no problem, I just updated to 16.10 because there isn’t any more support for 15.10. We’ll figure out what’s the issue with my laptop, it is hard to go back to Windows 7 Starter after getting used to Ubuntu Mate.

Later

Hi,

During the weekend I reinstalled 16.04 32 bit, which according to the Ubuntu Mate download website is the one I should have and not the 64 bit amid my 2GB of RAM. I have booted many times in Ubuntu without problems. Anyway, I typed “dmesg” and the results are below. I don’t understand the outcome of "dmesg"that much so please let me know if there is anything weird. I tried with dcfldd but it took a while and since I didn’t get anything on the terminal for a at least 10 minutes, I closed the terminal.

Thanks a lot for your support.

Hello Daniel,

Good job! Well off the bat, I can tell you that there is nothing wrong in this dmesg file. To make a long story short, the informations contained in this output covers all(as in: A-L-L) of the hardware being discovered and configured during boot.

That being said, it’s always interesting to take a peep at this file whenever your system is having problems and that you are suspecting hardware (or system) corruption of some sort. If that’s the case, then there would most probably be red error messages spammed all the way in that output.

Also, the longer your system is running the more lines there will be written in this file therefore comes one point when one can simply skip the first 20seconds of booting time

AKA

Therefore anything coming AFTER is generally a better indication of what’s going on in your system at any given time.

In regards of dcfldd that’s a software to be (mostly) used to erase hard drives. I would suggest going thru “man dcfldd” in other to learn more but the general way to invoke it is:

$ sudo dcfldd /dev/sda

Where /dev/sda is your HD. Again, this will DELETE ALL THE DATA from the drive without asking for a confirmation but on the bright side is when dcfldd is done one can recheck under dmesg to see if any errors poped-up while it was running.

Hope this helps,
