[SOLVED] Unable to boot after upgrade from M4 to M5

Postby Lucidor » Jun 20th, '15, 18:51

I did a command line upgrade from Mageia 4 to 5 which seemingly went well, but after reboot I got stuck with the following message:

"Started Update UTMP about System Runlevel Changes."

And there is sits forever. Any hints and tips are most welcome.

Cheers,
L

What happens if you select failsafe mode from boot menu?

I had the same experience. I switched to booting to runlevel 3 and executing startx. When I get time I'll try to investigate further.

I think the last line that appears is the last one that completed, it would block for the next one (which is sadly not shown).

Although on my installation I don't have that line in my boot log, so can't tell what the next item would be ...
Code: Select all
┌─[doktor5000@Mageia5]─[20:26:02]─[~]
└──╼ grep -A5 -i utmp /var/log/boot.log
         Starting Update UTMP about System Boot/Shutdown...
[  OK  ] Started Save boot dmesg content.
[  OK  ] Started Tell Plymouth To Write Out Runtime Data.
[  OK  ] Started Update UTMP about System Boot/Shutdown.
[  OK  ] Started Network Time Synchronization.

In failsafe it stops at:

bridge: automatic filtering via arp/ip/ip6tables has been deprecated. Update your scripts to load br_netfilter if you need this.
ip_set: protocol 6
netfilter PSD loaded - (c) astaro AG
IFWLOG: register target

And then it halts.

I forgot to mention that in normal boot mode, a few lines above the "Started Update UTMP..." line, I get the following error:

Failed to start Shorewall IPv6 firewall.

FWIW - I don't use shorewall and failsafe booted normally for me. I was able to login as root.

There are a few more things to try

- append init=/bin/sh to the kernel boot options to see if that gets you to a shell
- append systemd.unit=debug-shell.service to kernel boot options to enable an early debug shell
- enable sort of interactive boot via appending systemd.confirm_spawn=true to the kernel boot options
- if you know which unit causes the issue, you can supress loading that via appending systemd.mask=shorewall.service
- append
Code: Select all
systemd.log_level=debug systemd.log_target=kmsg log_buf_len=1M
to the kernel boot options to see if that gets more verbose output why it hangs
( for more systemd boot options and some explanations on those see the bottom half of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_d ... d_problems and http://www.freedesktop.org/software/sys ... -line.html )

I had the same problem. My solution is change video to Xorg/Vesa for the first boot. I use "mmc" from comand-line for it. After booting change video-driver to normal.

Thanks doktor, my comments in blue below.

No change from original error, including the shorewall warning message

I did notice that when it hangs, I am able to switch to another console (Ctrl-F3) and log in as root. Not sure what to do next though, but I appreciate your help.

Mike, that is great news. Can I ask you for some more details so that I may be able to repeat what you did?

To change the video driver, run drakx11 as root and select a different driver.

To see why the boot hangs, best run
Code: Select all
journalctl -ab > journal.log
systemctl --all > systemctl.log

and attach both files here.

Of couse. Switch to console and login as root. Type "mcc" to run "Mageia Control Center" in text-mode. Find video settings and change video to Xorg/Vesa(it's easy). Reboot.
My system is loading well after this. I run Mageia Control Center again (in graphic-mode) select my videocard and reinstall drivers. Reboot and enjoy))

P.S. Mageia 5 is very good for me.

The problem is solved. I followed Mike's advice and changed the graphics driver to Xorg/Vesa and the system booted. I then reistalled the NVidia driver and everything works like a charm.

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to boot after upgrade from M4 to M5

Hmmm, also the second-to-last nvidia driver for the generation below the current models.
Saw someone else who had issues to install the driver within the installer. In installed system later on it worked fine.

Thanks for the feedback.

Your card is also in the range NVIDIA GeForce 8100 to GeForce 415 ?

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to boot after upgrade from M4 to M5

Just to follow-up on my report that I had the same problem as the OP. I have determined that I did not. My problem was that systemd was choking on my rc.local file. I've modified my set up and eliminated the need for that file. Without it, graphical boot is working perfectly for me.

Your card is also in the range NVIDIA GeForce 8100 to GeForce 415 ?


GeForce 8800 GT

So the same driver, that's three people so far.

Make it four people. Same trouble, same driver. I had all sorts of fun. Just switching to xorg/vesa didn't help. Had to remove the nvidia driver altogether and then reinstall it. That worked fine on at least one reboot, but on the first boot the next day I was presented with a starry sky and Mageia logo in the bottom right corner -- and that was that, espite trying again! Fortunately I spotted on the way to that state a quater of the Nvidia logo flashing briefly in the bottom right corner, instead of in the center of the screen. So making a wild guess, I forced the correct resolution of my screen, and that finally did the trick.

Five here. In my case I removed the nvidia-current package for the command line and installed the new nvidia340, as recommended by the Release Notes.
