[SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

I just installed BS 64-bit OS into my rather old 64 bit system. The specs -

MSI 7309 mobo
Athlon 64x2 4000+
2GB RAM
PATA HDD

Everything goes fine, however when I click on the web browser icon, the screen crashes. I end up hard booting the system.

Screen shot of the crashes...

Screen 1
Screen 2

Is it because of the 64 bit architecture? The RAM seems to be too less for a 64 bit system.


SOLUTION ===========================================
This part is added after the problem is solved, for future refereces. Please read through the entire thread for details.

The crash was due to the wrong nVIDIA drivers installed. Uninstalled the wrong drivers and installed the correct drivers.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

No way, 2G on amd64 are just fine; I had the same in my laptop a couple of years back.

Consider the following:

a) Make sure you have the last amd64 microcode installed, see https://wiki.debian.org/Microcode#Updat … _or_AMD.29, lest a specific CPU instruction lets the CPU crash. Check if the kernel itself is still responsive by trying to restart using the sysrq key: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key.

b) It could be a graphics problem. Tell us your graphics card details (the MSI could have a Gefore 6100 on-board graphics card correct?) Check if you can start Firefox in safe mode (firefox -safe-mode), and disable hardware accel in the settings. Check if there are log entries in /var/log/Xorg.0.log* files that pertain to the crash.

BTW does Chromium work correctly, or does it crash too?


The show must go on.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

I am able to open firefox in safe mode and have disabled hardware acceleration, and right now it doesn't crash up when launches normally.

Thank you.

When trying to install the microcode, it asks me to install it using the line deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie main non-free on the sources list, but I already have the following lines in the file,

deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie main contrib non-free
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

So it should already be installed I guess whenever I update and upgrade the system (apt update && apt upgrade).

Please post the exact, full terminal output (along with the command that produced it) rather than a vague description.

Please also post the output of:

apt-cache policy amd64-microcode

In respect of your crash problems, you can use the systemd journal to investigate, guide here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/ … stemd-logs

You can enable persistent journaling by creating the neccessary directory:

sudo mkdir -p /var/log/journal

After the problem has been fixed, remove this to prevent boot delays:

sudo rm -rf /var/log/journal

If you cannot make any sense of the journal contents then upload them to http://paste.debian.net/ and post the URL here.

That is not a terminal output, but rather mentioned on the webpage https://packages.debian.org/jessie/amd6 … e/download. Sorry, I should have mentioned this clearly.

I shall look into using that system. New to linux... So, will take time... smile

Even after disabling, use hardware acceleration is enabled at every start up. So for anyone reading this post for a solution, disable hardware accelation permanently on Firefox.

Does anyone know how to do that with the current version 45.6.0? Most how tos on the internet are for older version. I can't find gfx.direct2d.disabled in about.config as mentioned in most articles.

Firefox is lying to you -- hardware accelearation is *not* available for GNU/Linux users except by using FlashPlayer and that only works with PPAPI.

Ok, I am not going to argue on that with the little knowledge I have smile, but here's what I observed. The 'use hardware acceleration if available' check box is checked automatically after every boot/start up. What can I do to uncheck it permanently.

How exactly did you install Firefox?

I didn't install Firefox.. It was already there.. The X Web Browser... Help>About Firefox displays the name Firefox ESR.
Please don't tell me that it's not Firefox...  yikes

Well, it should be Firefox...

Let's check:

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

Yes, you appear to be using the correct Firefox version.

I have no idea why that tickbox preference isn't "sticking" though, I cannot reproduce that on my system hmm

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

In BL in VBox, that checkbox was enabled by default, but the chosen setting persists after a FF restart.

about:config has this, although I don't know if it is applicable:

gfx.xrender.enabled true

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

Update:

After two reboots, the check box is seems to be permanently uncheked... So the problem is pretty much solved I guess.

However I also noticed that this crash occurs other times too, although only faced twice. I was opening terminal with the command ALT+T even before the desktop was loaded (little impatient) wink .

I shall update if this crash happens on any other normal circumstance. Morever, I shall also try to use the systemd journal the next time it happens.

For now I am updating this thread as SOLVED. Hope no one unsubscribes from this post.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

Ok. so I got to say that the screen crashed quite a number of times since my last post. It crashed on various occasions including some instances of firefox launch, firefox safe mode launch, video watch (no HD), after chromium launch (memory extension I guess) etc...

Opera seems to be running fine, because it is light.

So I would like to deduce that it is the computer that crashes, probably when doing something heavy. Perhaps I really need to use the systemd journal.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

IMO, either your hard drive or memory chips are failing, I think you should test both ASAP.

Anything tests that you suggest? It's like the blue screen error that used to happen with Win XP. Quite annoying...

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

I think there may be a "MemTest" option in the BunsenLabs GRUB menu, the *buntu live ISO images certainly have such a feature.

Otherwise, try memtester & smartmontools.

Yes, all browser have crashed multiple times. Please note the at times I am able to open them and use. The crash happens even during other tasks like toggling through open windows etc...

Sysrq doesn't help... Hard boot is the only way I can get the system back, at times, only to crash again.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

Maybe the proprietary Nvidia driver could make a difference.  You can see if it can be installed by installing the "nvidia-detect" package and running it in the terminal.  It will tell you if your hardware's supported by any of the proprietary drivers in Debian's repository.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

nvidia-detect gave the following output,

00:0d.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 6100 nForce 405] [10de:03d1] (rev a2)
Your card is only supported up to the 304 legacy drivers series.
It is recommended to install the
    nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver
package.

How do I install that driver? The following code didn't work (I knew it wasn't going to work, but just gave a try).

apt-get install nvidia-driver-304xx

Using the code apt-get install nvidia-driver downloaded a driver, but while installing gave a pop up saying that the it's not compatible.

│This system has a graphics card which is no longer handled by the NVIDIA 
│ driver (package nvidia-driver). You may wish to keep the package installed   │

│

│

I chose NO and aborted the installation.

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

Try:

$ sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-legacy-304xx

or

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver

(I cannot tell which one is better ... probably the second one.)

Why? Because if you execute:

$ apt-cache show nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver

you will see your card in the list of supported gfx cards.

(And your card doesn't seem to be supported with version '340xx'!)

(EDIT: addedd missing 'install' command.)

Perhaps you meant,

$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver

Here's the output (outputA),

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

So I use apt-get -f install

After the download, I get a new screen asking me this,

I choose NO.

PS:

apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-legacy-304xx

returns the same output as (outputA).

Re: [SOLVED] System crashes during tasks especially while opening browsers

^ weird hmm

Try:

sudo aptitude install nvidia-legacy-304xx-driver

The `aptitude` command is good for sorting through dependency issues, it should offer several options for you to choose from.
