View Full Version : 10.10 Logs Out Every Two Hours

I am running Mythbuntu 10.10, MythTV 24-fixes.

I'm having a weird problem where I get logged out ever two hours, to the minute. I did a clean install after I had some problems upgrading from 10.04, and it started immediately afterward.

I've disabled all the power management that I can find. It's not like a normal logout, more like a crash. I get dumped back to the login screen. If I'm watching a recording, it doesn't save a bookmark (even though I have it set to do that).

Everything in the background continues just fine though (MythBackend, Folding@Home, NFS, Samba)

It happens more frequently if I'm not in MythFrontend, closer to 15 minutes (though it seems to vary more)

I've looked through some logs (exactly which ones, though, escapes me), with no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas that could help me? I'm getting really tired of having to crawl out of bed first thing in the morning to log in.

Hi,

Maybe have a look in the system log /var/log/syslog or maybe the mythtv log files /var/log/mythtv

Also maybe try stopping folding (I know that's hard I just broke 6million points) just to see if it's a heat problem causing your CPU or GPU to crash causing gdm/Xserver to shutdown.

Alright, I captured this in/var/log/syslog right after I got logged out:

inara is the name of the computer (yes from Firefly)


I highly doubt Folding is to blame because it's only been running for a week or two, and this problem started way before that, when I first installed. I also tried disabling it one day and it didn't change anything.

I disabled almost everything in startup (Update Check, Network Manager, etc)

I don't think it's the network manager, because it's showing almost the same thing in the logs an hour later.

Hi,

Can you try using the NVidia driver rather than the open source nouveau driver. I'm not sure if that's the problem but it's worth a try and the NVidia driver supports vdpau (hardware acceleration for video).

Well installing Nvidia drivers seems to have fixed the logout problem.

Unfortunately it created a new problem, I can't run Mythfrontend. This is the error that I get:

/usr/bin/mythfrontend.real: error while loading shared libraries: libvdpau.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


A quick google search has turned up this problem in several places. The solution seems to be install libvdpau0, which doesn't seem to exist anymore, and libvdpau1 is already at the highest version.

Grr, and now it seems MythBackend isn't starting either.

Oops, I spoke too soon. I am still getting logged out. I fixed the vdpau problem by reinstalling libvdpau1 from Synaptic. I don't get logged out as quickly when I'm out of MythFrontend now.

Also, I'm being defaulted to 1920x1200 resolution on my monitor which only supports 1920x1080, and it's having to pan. It works fine in MythFrontend, but outside of that, it pans around.

Hi,

So, what messages you you see now when you get "logged out". What your calling logged out is actually the graphical frontend end which crashes and as the process is ended your thrown back to the login prompt.

Can you try running a memory test, it's a menu option in grub.

Regards

It is a graphical login screen, just like you would get if you didn't have auto login configured. I don't get any messages, the screen just goes black for a second, then the login screen appears. I'll run MemTest tomorrow

MemTest86 passed completely. I am completely stumped.

I also noticed that playback gets jerky every 15-20 minutes. It seems to coincide with "mythpreviewgen" showing up in "top".

Out of curiosity, I killed Xorg, and it produced a logout identical to the problem I've been having, so it looks like Xorg is crashing.

I'll get my syslog from the next logout and see if anything has changed now that I'm on restricted drivers.

Hi,

Just switched my brain on, and I've got the feeling that somethings screwed up in you gdm configuration:-

Look in "/home/username/.config/autostart" (username=your user name) and delete "metacity.desktop" and "gnome-power-manager.desktop" then reboot and see if the system works better.

Regards

Those two files weren't in ~/.config/autostart. They were in /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow though, and I moved them into another folder. Rebooted, and I still got logged out after two hours. I had a log to post, but I seem to have lost it. I'll have a new one in about an hour haha.

Hi,

OK I'm starting to run out of ideas, but can you check in the log files what errors you get when your "logged out". Maybe check in /var/log/syslog and /var/log/Xorg.log

A stupid question is your frontend using dhcp to get an ip address or do you have a fixed ip address.

Hard to tell when stuff was written to this log so I just posted the whole thing. There shouldn't be anything sensitive in it... I hope.
Funny, I don't have an Xorg.log. Couldn't even find one with locate.

It is setup for DHCP, but it delivers a static IP. It is a frontend/backend combo.

Did you ever resolve this? As this is the exact same problem I have, and its driving me nuts.

I did not ever resolve it. I may try doing a clean install sometime soon.

I have a new problem too, a lot of my transcodes are failing with "exit status 136." When the transcoding does succeed, the recording doesn't have audio. (Though not all the time, but since I disabled transcoding, I haven't had one lose the audio)

So yeah, this is really starting to annoy me.

Just an FYI. I resolved this problem on my server by removing the directory at ~/.config/xfce4, and then rebooting.

I fixed it!

I dropped my resolution from 1920x1080 to 1600x1200. This computer can't handle 1080p content so it doesn't really make a difference. It's going on seven hours now without logging out.

I did a clean install a few days ago to try to clear it up. The first time I installed, It stayed logged in over night without any problems. Unfortunately I messed up my partitions (put /usr on its own partition instead of /var), so I reinstalled. It logged out after only 1 hour 50 minutes. Anyway, whatever, I have it working now.

Deleting that directory didn't work for me, but thanks for your help.

I've been having the same issue ever since I upgraded to 10.10. Randomly dumping me out to a login screen. Changing the resolution didn't help me. Out of curiosity, what kind of nVidia card are you using? Mine's an 8400 GS.

My resolution turned out not to be the problem. When I dropped my resolution the first time, x11vnc crashed. After that, I didn't have any crashes until I rebooted.

After I figured out that x11vnc was the problem, I added "killall x11vnc" to my startup script, and I haven't had any crashes since then. (Actually, that's not true. I installed Boxee, which apparently broke something in my video drivers, and whenever I tried to run it or XBMC, it dumped me back to the login screen. I reinstalled my video card drivers (for an unrelated problem) and it fixed it.

My video card is an Nvidia GeForce4 MX 420
Tip: Install the drivers from the Nvidia website. That is the only way I could get them to work.

What x11vnc cmdline options are you using? The following x11vnc options are used to work around bugs and crashes in the Xorg X server:
-noxrecord -noxfixes -noxdamage (BTW, one can search these forums using those options as keywords to find more info on the Xorg bugs.)

Maybe try adding all three and see if Xorg still crashes.

That was definitely the culprit. Finally, after 4 months, killing x11vnc did the trick. Thank you.

I can't believe I missed your post! I went on and on about this problem for days!

Indeed I also have x11vnc installed and adding these three options helped (I will do some more testing today).

THANKS!!!!

I have same problem, but I have no any process like x11vnc:


fly@fly-ws:~/.config$ ps awx | grep x11vnc
2499 pts/4 S+ 0:00 grep --color=auto x11vnc
fly@fly-ws:~/.config$ x11vnc
The program 'x11vnc' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install x11vnc
also, I have ati x800 and have no any 'drivers' at system->adm->addition drivers
