Debian shutdown and startup hang

1 New Member
Hello everyone

I was wondering if someone can assist me. I just installed a fresh copy of debian etch on a server that was previously running windows. Startup time of the server is roughly an hour. Which is unacceptable for a production server. The server hangs on "Uniform cd-rom driver revision:3.20". If I remove the cd-rom drive, the server willl still hang but on another device it is trying to load.

While trying to shutdown the server there is also a long delay before the server will actually shutdown or restart. The server will hang on "asking all remaining processes to terminate".

People have told me the Harddrive may be faulty, but I had windows running fine on it earlier.
Does anyone have any ideas on what is causing this problem and how I can fix it?

Have you tried putting a Live CD in there and checking things out? Something like Knoppix or an Ubuntu Live CD? Then you can check the drive and devices, etc...

I need to create a utility to shutdown another running application. I know you can get a Process object and execute the Exit method but that only works for apps that have a main window, mine does not.

I have written a service that is depending on mysqld. The service startup just fine, but I would like to have my service *always* shutdown first before mysqld does. That way I can add some log into my table before the service shutdown. As I search online, I haven't found any way to do so. Since the "service dependencies" setting of services is only used at startup stage, but not at shutdown stage. Is there any way to intercept the...

In trying to improve the throughput of a classic ASP app I wrote a few years ago, I added monitoring to the application and session start and end methods. I'm counting the total number of sessions and the high water mark. The results are puzzling to me. In Application_OnStart, I clear the current and highwater session counts, and write an app startup event to my app log file (a text file). In Application_OnEnd, I write an app shutdown...
