Thread: openSUSE 12.2 does not boot after updating to Gnome 3.6

  1. #1

    Default openSUSE 12.2 does not boot after updating to Gnome 3.6

    Recently started using openSUSE 12.2 and found this guide on how to updgrade GNOME to 3.6:
    http://dominique.leuenberger.net/blo...opensuse-12-2/

    After following the instructions, nothing seemed to have happened so I tried rebooting the system.
    Now the OS won't boot, I just get to a prompt saying "GRUB" with a flashing cursor.

    Does anyone have any idea what I can do from here?

    maybe:

    1. ask the writer of the guide you followed what why it didn't work for
    you...how to reach the creator is listed on the page you linked, under
    the heading "Found an issue?"

    2. roll back to whatever you had before following the 3.6 guide..

    Asked the author of the article, he said that I had been using other repositories.
    When I said I hadn't he proceeded to ignore me.

    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) is a commercial product provided by
    the good folks at suse.com, and their forums are at forums.suse.com, the
    password and ID you used here works there, at their main board also..

    these are the openSUSE forums, or as you might call them the main board
    for openSUSE....since openSUSE and SLES are different products we here
    are not the best qualified to try to help you, please contact the other
    folks..

    How can I perform a rollback when I can't even get into the system?
    Can you run any commands in the black screen ?
    If so can you run "zypper lr -d" and post output within [code] tags
    You can retain core repos disable other repos and perform a "zypper dup"
    Or get the live cd(no upgrade) or dvd(upgrade supported) and install again
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit
