View Full Version : [SOLVED] Can only boot with F14 kernel
1st November 2010, 06:12 PM
I got systemd running on F14 Updates-Testing by adding "init=/bin/systemd systemd.unit=graphical.target" to the kernel line. But when I upgraded to Rawhide through yum "yum install fedora-release-rawhide, yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide update" I can't boot into the Rawhide kernel.
I get these errors and others with the Rawhide kernel at boot: "Failed to open syslog for logging: No such file or directory", "udevd  can not read '/etc/udev/rules.d/10-console.rules'", "can't access tty; job control turned off"
I can still boot into Rawhide with the latest F14 Updates-Testing kernel, and even a fresh install of Rawhide gives me the same errors, or upgrading F14 without systemd running. Adding the systemd kernel lines from F14 to Rawhide doesn't help either.
Update: Compiling a Rawhide kernel with basic changes and trying the first Rawhide kernel from Koji doesn't help either.

This is my dmesg log with error. "rhgb quiet" removed from kernel boot line in grub.

I'm able to type "exit" in dracut debug console and boot normally.
Any suggestions on how to fix? I'll look up the error code later and make a bug report.

What ever they did it hosed my file system. I am currently booting off a DVD to see if I can salvage any thing. I am choked that I had gotten all of dracut out of my system and they added it back in and forced it to be the default again. Grrrrr.

Yes, I have to use my install CD to rescue my system a lot more times than I'd like. Downgrading dracut to F14 doesn't work.
If I'm reading it right, error code is for corrupted disk or partition not given right size. I didn't use a partition editor and the partition sizes seem ok in Logical Volume Management. Also, fsck shows both "/dev/sda1" and "/dev/mapper/vg_user-lv_root" and "home" as clean, even after forcing a check. The option "fsck -T -t noopts=_netdev -A" doesn't seem to work for dracut shell.
I'll make a bug report later, but I might have missed something...
(Ctrl-D also lets me out of dracut shell.)

I'm finally making progress. I was getting the same issues with Dracut as you were. You will notice in dmesg that it is whining about a problem with fsck. The last 2 versions of dracut have been to add an fsck and then do a fix.
* Wed Nov 03 2010 Harald Hoyer <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 008-0.8 - fixed fsck -a option *
Fri Oct 29 2010 Harald Hoyer <email@example.com> 008-0.7 - added fsck to initramfs
I did a
yum remove dracut
That also took out plymouth-scripts
I then ran
rpm -ivh http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/dracut/008/0.6.git353ef76.fc15/noarch/dracut-008-0.6.git353ef76.fc15.noarch.rpm
yum install plymouth-scripts
The dracut problem is now gone. Now I am just hashing through my systemd problems.
