linux switches off automatically - by no reason - see the systemlogs


good morning dear linux-experts



I just installed openleapr 42.1 on a noteook in order to test it. While trying to diagnose a problem with the system - it switches off after a while - after some minutes being unactive - i encounter some issues. The system fails into a shootdown. The systems sometimes falls into a "freeze"


so i have to look at the logfiles


How do I open or view log files on Linux operating systems?

Code:
journalctl
this does work

To see /var/log/messagess log file, we can enter:

Quote:
tail -f /var/log/messagess
less /var/log/messagess
more /var/log/messagess
i get the following

Code:

Depends. I had a similar case caused by heat - turned out the CPU fan bearings had frozen.

The system would run for 3-20 minutes before overheating depending on room temperature.

It can also happen if the fan works - but is slowing down, or the vents get blocked (I also had to clean the heat sink).

In no case were the journal logs updated. There was no evidence there.

hello agian - the hp notebook is pretty new.
i thoughtt that this errors were depending on a (my) bad bad installation of opensuse leap 42-1

but if not. shouldnd the logs show all the issues with the cpu-temperature...!?

update:
A power off crash may well be hardware related - heat/dust etc.
An automatic shutdown is likely to be something else. Is it a shutdown or a 'sleep' caused by say a screen saver timer ?


regarding the logfile: we can also see some errors in the logs that might be worth taking at a look at regardless.
First, why are some of the lines in the wrong time sequence ?

See here :

Quote:
Dez 30 21:13:23 linux-o61y.site PackageKit[2489]: uid 1000 is trying to obtain org.freedesktop.packagekit.system-sources-refresh auth (only_trusted:0)
Dez 30 20:30:01 linux-o61y.site systemd[2333]: pam_unix(systemd-user:session): session closed for user root
question; What causes the jump back in time ?

Also:
Quote:
systemd[1]: Cannot add dependency job for unit logrotate.timer, ignoring: Unit logrotate.timer failed to load: No such file or directory.

ATTENTION: i might have modified /etc/resolv.conf. Leaving it untouched
i might do some checks

Hi...

Did you verify the integrity of the .iso (using the md5 information) when you downloaded it? Can this problem be duplicated using another distribution, such as Ubuntu?

Regards...

Do you thihk this is possible? I guess this would be an interesting way to test.

Hi...

Thank you and may God bless you, too!

Sure, you can give it a try but I'm not sure you will get the same results running it live. If the results come up fine, then try installing the distribution to the hard drive.

Regards...

Thank you, I'm glad you and others are blessed by it, that has been my hope since I first started using it another forum a few years ago. Happy New Year and may God bless you, too!

i do report some more findings.

the notebook i instaled leap 42.1 is a HP Notebooks hp 14 r 103ng

the login und logout / shootdown / poweroff behaving is very very strange. - it is somewhat a freeze.

guess it has to do with the bios


see some Kommandos

Well i guess that i firstly would


- install a new BIOS - what do you suggest - do you think that a new BIOS woluld be a good idea...??

then i will have a closer look at the things...


guess - and admit: Secure 1boot would not be a problem and it can be simply turned off.
Legacy/EFI deals with how things are meant to boot and that is decided at the time of the install and can not be arbitrarily changed. In any case none of that would effect "no reason" shut downs.....


conclusion: it is a new laptop. i guess it runs UEFI bios and by default in "secure" mode.
i am not sure if it is able to run opensuse linux without any issues.

Guess that i need to boot into the bios, and change the boot mode to "legacy" or something like that to disable the "secure" features. Some newer Linux systems can be installed on a secure boot UEFI bios, but not all.

please advice - what else i can do....


many many thanks for any and all help
