    Could not write bytes: broken pipe

    Hello,
    I cannot boot my computer and the "Could not write bytes: broken pipe" message appears.
    Some information:
    Computer: dell with nvidia. Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64 bits

    Disk /dev/sda: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x1f0c667f

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 2048 206847 102400 de Dell Utility
    /dev/sda2 * 206848 30926847 15360000 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda3 30926848 133326847 51200000 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda4 133328894 1250263039 558467073 5 Extended
    Partition 4 does not start on physical sector boundary.
    /dev/sda5 1242357760 1250263039 3952640 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda6 296554496 1242353663 472899584 83 Linux
    /dev/sda7 133328896 296552447 81611776 83 Linux

    Partition table entries are not in disk order

    I've tried without any success.....

    Through the recovery mode: Repair broken packages.

    By Purging nvidia and re-installing it again

    rm .Xauthoroty didn't work

    I tried to use the nano editor (sudo nano -w) to delete a supossed failed var/lib/dpg/status and didn't know how....

    At the moment, I'm using this live-cd to try to solve this.

    Thankyou.

    Re: Could not write bytes: broken pipe

    I saw "Could not write bytes: broken pipe" message on an 12.04 server that booted and worked perfectly. There's a bug in Plymouth but it's supposed to be a cosmetic issue.

    So there's a good chance this message has nothing to do with why your PC doesn't boot. You should mount the root partition from your installation while you're in Live environment and check if there's anything interesting in /var/log/dmesg or /var/log/system there.

    Finally I've done this:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ ls /mnt
    lost+found rqsal
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda7 /mnt
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ ls /mnt
    bin initrd.img mnt srv
    boot initrd.img.old opt sys
    cdrom lib proc tmp
    C:\nppdf32Log\debuglog.txt lib32 root usr
    dev lib64 run var
    etc lost+found sbin vmlinuz
    home media selinux vmlinuz.old

    Does it help???

    Re: Could not write bytes: broken pipe

    Your installation appears to be on /dev/sda7. You need to go into var/log subfolder:
    Code:
    cd /mnt/var/log
    and then check log files, say:
    Code:
    tail -200 dmesg # outputs last 200 lines, increase the number if needed
    tail -200 syslog
    See if you can find any obvious error messages. If unsure, post the output here but wrap in [code] tags because otherwise it's very annoying to read.

    I don't know if this information would be enough and I don't know how to wrap the information in codes, as you said before. I'm Sorry, I am a real absolute beginner

    Re: Could not write bytes: broken pipe

    Well, your dmesg log looks fine. Could you post syslog as well? And what exactly happened during boot after that "broken pipe" warning? Did you get logon prompt? Blinking cursor? Blank screen?

    How shall I extract the syslog?

    After that broken pipe stuff nothing happens, and I cannot do anything apart from entering by pressing ctrl Alt F1 buttons.

    Re: Could not write bytes: broken pipe

    Well, if you see command line logon prompt then most probably it's a video driver issue and most probably the issue was caused by a kernel update.

    D/l the latest nVidia driver, put it somewhere on sda7, reboot to your installation, navigate to the folder where you put the script and run the script:
    Code:
    sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.23.run
    Follow the instructions and reboot again when the installation is complete.
