Thread: 11.4 Boot Freeze

  1. #1

    Default 11.4 Boot Freeze

    Grub kicks off and after a few words about the kernel we get to the point where this message displays itself. After that nothing for about 5 min then the cpu error's quoted below.

    Code:
    doing fast boot
    Creating device nodes with udev
    At frist I was able to by pass the issue by changing the vga=0x317 to some other value. But just like last time I had to use that trick, it only works so many times before you run out of options.

    I have quoted the system spec below let me know if you need anything else to suggest a fix.

    After my system gets to doing fast boot, Creating device nodes with udev it hangs for several minutes.

    Then it starts with a repeating error message: Modprobe 102




    And

    If you press 'e' at the boot menu on the default boot and try adding: acpi=off and or noapic

    While those options will make almost anything boot they also have a cost, especially on laptops where heat is a concern.

    That is on my list of fixes to try, the only issue that is holding me back from trying that is my wifi driver not working in the desktop kernel.

    Are you saying it doesn't work period. Or just that you will need to make it work, because it should work given that you do the same to make it so as you did for kernel-default

    After I installed the Wireless firmware and reboot I noticed that it had installed the default kernel. I am thinking about reversing that install to see if that fixes this boot freeze.

    Also on a side note I know have to restart the system three times to get it to boot.

    When I change the boot options such as vga=... I think I am clearing some config out and allowing a new one to be made or used. Is there command that will allow me to do this every time?

    It's not unusual for another kernel to get dragged in, it shouldn't happen and you should prevent it.
    Maybe you still have kernel-desktop as well?

    As su
    Do this and post result

    Code:
    cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
    Did you try the broadcom wl driver from packman?
