Thread: Stuck during boot

  1. #1

    Unhappy Stuck during boot

    Hello,

    Since yesterday, I can not boot my opensuse machine (Tumbleweed). I it stuck during the boot proces. I enter my password (I have encrypted my disk), I see the following messages :
    Code:
    [ OK ] Started OpenSSH Daemon.
    [ OK ] Started /etc/init.d/boot.local
    [ OK ] Started LSB: Autmoatically install DKMS modules for new kernels.
    The screen blinks twice and then nothing happens. I can not interact with the laptop on this screen (ctrl-c does nothing).
    I tried manually starting gdm in another tty (sudo gdm restart) but it did nothing (no error message, just stuck.
    I tried looking in log files (like /var/log/boot.log, faillog, mail.err or Xorg.0.log) but I can not find any error.

    Code:
    > uname -a
    Linux linux-g50t.site 3.8.8-3-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 17 08:48:54 UTC 2013 (193f348) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    I also tried booting with kernel 3.8.8-2 but I got the same result.

    Any idea ?
    Thanks

    Here are some log files that may help :
    Xorg.0.log
    boot.log

    As this is clearly about Tumbleweed system and as we have as clearly a Tumbleweed forum, this will be moved there to give it a better chance to bee seen by Tumbleweed users.

    This is therefore CLOSED for the moment .

    Have you attempted booting with the 'failsafe' boot option ?

    I note "Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) Ivybridge Mobile (GT2)" hardware for graphics.

    If it boots with 'nomodeset' boot code (for example) I would then try that boot code with an entry in the /etc/modprobe.d/50-device.conf to have the Intel driver manually loaded.

    Do you mean the recovery mode option in grub ? I just tried, this time I went a bit further in the boot process, until "Reached target Graphical Interface" (still with "[ OK ]") but same problem.

    I forgot to mention but when the screen blink (3 or 4 times) I see briefly the mouse pointer but it disapear after.
    I run GNOME by the way.

    Yes in Grub2 it is likely called that. With legacy grub it is called failsafe.

    When the grub menu 1st appears, you can also press " e " and then navigate to the appropriate place in the boot menu and try boot codes such as "x11failsafe" and also "nomodeset".

    Sometimes pressing < escape > early during the boot sequence (before the problem appears) can disable plymouth, which has been known to cause compatibility problems during boot for a very small number of users.

    The recovery mode entry in grub has these two options. I tried pressing esc several times during the boot process, still the same.
    I tried using the "startx" command directly in another tty and this is the output (using sudo, otherwise got an error unable to open Xorg log files):

    See the end of file "/etc/permissions.local" for hint on how to use
    startx as plain user.

    When the grub menu is showing, one presses "E" so as to obtain the screen where the text codes can be edited, and options such as 'nomodeset' and/or 'x11failsafe' can be attempted. Its also in that screen where the boot codes can be tuned, such as removing the "vga=xxxxx" which I think is worth attempting.

    Pressing < escape > just once after the grub menu, shortly after the plymouth boot screen appears should be enough. The idea is to dynamically display the plymouth screen and have only text display show up ... to try and remove the possibility of any plymouth settings causing the problem that your PC is experiencing.
