Kubuntu Feisty reboots during bootup
 
This has been an ongoing issue for me for a couple weeks. Kubuntu will randomly reboot during startup, it's generally a hit-and-miss. Occasionally it will just hang and I haven't really been able to isolate the issue yet.

From syslog, I pulled this from the latest occurance:

Code:

I also grabbed the events from kern.log at the same time:

Anyone know what would cause it to restart randomly on startup or where to look?

Matir 05-23-2007 12:15 AM

Odd. Nothing unusual in the logs. Does it just suddenly reboot (i.e., hard reboot) or does it act like it is doing a proper shutdown first?

Ashex 05-23-2007 12:23 AM

it just does a hard reboot without any warning. Is it possible that bad RAM would cause this? I don't experience random reboots after I login.

Matir 05-23-2007 01:24 AM

Bad RAM, bad settings/BIOS, or bad PSU could all be the culprit. Try running memtest86+ to try to rule out RAM.

Ashex 05-23-2007 01:46 AM

I'll give that a shot. I'll start memtest when i leave for work tomorrow.

Ashex 05-23-2007 07:42 PM

Memtest ran for 9.5 hours with 28 passes, and no errors popped up. I'm not sure what the cause is. I'll purchase a new power supply and replace my current one, as that would be the most likely cause I suppose (350W PSU, the system is running just shy of that amount)

same issue
 
I am experiencing a similar problem. Did you find out what the cause was? Bad PS?

My logs looks exactly the same. I was able to log on though and start rtorrent client. Does anyone know if a bad disk block or something would cause an unexpected reboot? The system will run for about an hour or 2 before it reboots. I grep the logs and it actually reboots about every 8 hours if not logged on after it reboots.

I ran memtest no long ago but I will give that a try again too to see if it reboots.

thanks
