linux live cd hang!

by adamzz / March 1, 2007 7:02 AM PST

I tried to run ldconfig, it then restarted by itself.

Where can I retrieve some information about the failure?

This issue follows my computer failure with windows xp.
I discussed with Bob for quite long time and he suggested me try Livecd for diagnostics.
Thought he can pick it up a bit easier here.

Which live CD?

Which Linux distribution are you using?

FROM A WORKING COMPUTER, download a Linux live CD ISO file and use the procedure within a burning program (Nero, CDBurnerXP, RecordNow, etc.) to burn a disc from ISO. Knoppix is a popular live CD.

Look at the right hand column of this link under "Top 5 Live CDs."

Which is called damn small linux, about 50M

Just ust it to see what is the problem with my computer hardware.

The linux restarts 2sec after the message 'RAMDISK: compressed image found at block 0'. I can't find any other information.

Why in the world would you be running ldconfig on a LiveCD distribution? The only time you would EVER need to run ldconfig, is if you installed a new program, and wanted the new shared libraries to be picked up.

Maybe there's some backstory I missed out on that would shed some light on this, but I'm wondering what possible reason you could have to run ldconfig on a LiveCD distribution.

but that is never the focus of this problem.

Do let me know your opinion about what might be my computer's problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
