respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Post#1 by happymonkey » 10 Jan 2017, 23:02

Hi everybody,

I have used porteus now but I have a problem booting it once I have made any changes. That is...it loads perfectly when I use the always fresh mode, and it boots once a save file has been created...but once I make an actual change on the desktop (rename a folder for example) it won't boot and it leaves me with this message:

INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

Does anyone know what this means and why it is happening?

Thank you for any help you might give

Here is an image of the screen:

Thanks for the reply.

I tried to log on manually...but that didn't work (I just got red text after that). In the end I just restarted it 10 times and eventually it worked and has since. I spent some hours trying to figure out how to make a save file, how to put it on my other linux (cause i dont do windows and i think it's easier to have both on one partition instead of creating two no?) and then couple hours on a how to update the grub and then to make the default start up the porteus. A small achievement for a person who is not a linux-person!!! Porteus is so fast.

Installing seems easy (it only took me 5 minutes to figure out how it works). I had success with chromium and pidgeon. But I installed VLC and it stops working when i put it to full screen. IT's a pity and i couldn't find a solution. I downloaded so many others (mplayer, kplayer, smplayer, dragon player, xhaile etc) but most of them didn't work at all. Finally I tried Kaffeine...and it works (though its an ugly interface) but I'm curious why i have such problems with the media players.

Glad to hear. BTW you don't need a save file if you have another Linux where you wish to keep your changes. Just need a changes directory. (Savefile only needed due to permissions issue.) Please see details here: https://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php ... 465#p48453
