System will not boot

I'm using Fedora 16 with XFCE desktop

I was attempting to install LibreOffice3.5 I could not find it in GUI Software installer, so i downloaded the RMP version. I followed the instructions in the readme file for commandline installation. There was an error which told me to try skip-broken option.

I did that. Then I installed the Desktop-integration

Then I went back and ran yum install *.rpm and the rest of the previously uninstalled pachages appearently installed because i got no errors.

I did not see LibreOffice in my menues.

The next time i rebooted the system It locked up midboot up.

Attached are:
  • Last saved working boot log (boot.log.
  • The last boot log (/var/log/boot.log-20120506)

I was able to boot to falisafe and tried uninstalling libreoffice3.5 with yum uninstall.

No change--still won't boot..

I have openSUSE installed on another partition, but Fedora is my main system that I like to use.

HELP!

Re: System will not boot

Boot logs look 'fine' actualy.
The only thing that irritates me are the diffrent 'users' that are loaded in your home directory.

Does /var/log/Xorg.0.log show anything of matter?

Re: System will not boot

I do have my other partitions mount in folders in my home directory so I can easily find them

Re: System will not boot

As far as the LibreOffice install - you'll have to use the --nogpgcheck switch to get it to install (I wish they'd tell you that up fromt!!!)

Re: System will not boot

These are the two lines in boot log which are marked Failed

Failed to start LSB: Builds and install new kmods from akmod packages [FAILED]
See 'systemctl status akmods.service' for details.

Failed to start Recreate Volatile Files and Directories [FAILED]
See 'systemctl status systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service' for details.

I'm not sure that they mean, but I have a feeling that this is part of the problem

Any ideas?

Re: System will not boot

Dang, i'll parse logs next time again...
systemd-vconsole-setup.service, do you happen to have that service disabled?
If so, that would be the cause.

Re: System will not boot

akmods is an rpmfusion deal for rebuilding a non-free driver.
The boot.log show it entering a rescue shell - and this is typically to direct you to run fsck manually b/c your file system is messed up.
The normal reason for a fsck is that power was removed before you did a clean shutdown.

The second bootlog shows the automatic fscks proceeding (and making several repairs to your OpenSuse partition.

It got as far as starting the email service then died w/o a fatal message.
My guess if the fsck took a long time and then you yanked the power again b/c you got tired of waiting.


Boot again and hit the <esc> escape keep to watch the text bootup strings on screen. WAIT for it to complete or else till give a fatal error.

Re: System will not boot

I never pulled the plug. At least once, I rebooted and went to sleep. At least 6 hours later the same screen was up. Every time I press Ctr-Alt-Delete and the system shuts down and restarts.

I almost always hit F1 during startup, and before all this started happening, I never saw a red [FAILED] on any line, now I get two. That's why I'm thinking that those have something to do with the problem, but it might be coincidence.

Is it possible that a partial/failed installation of LibreOffice3.5 messed up some configuration file used during bootup?
