    Question 12.3 wont boot up after an upgrade.

    Hello all, I have some problems with my workstation, I got a Dell Precision 390 with Core2Duo 2.4GHz and 4GB DDR2 ECC, 2x 1TB drives in fake-raid 1. A few days ago I made an upgrade and after that my system is not booting up. I started a thread on Google+ but with no luck untill now. Some users said that was some hardware issue, but I tested the ram with 3 different programs and no errors. I was able to boot the 12.3 dvd into the Rescue mode but my drives are mounted like this
    /parts/mp_0000
    /parts/mp_0001
    /mounts/mp_0000
    /mounts/mp_0001
    /mounts/mp_0002
    A user suggested to blacklist the edac_core module in order to bypass the kernel bug, but the drives are mounted read only
    mount -o remount,rw / = mount.bin: / notmounted or bad option
    and
    mount -o remount,rw /mounts/mp_0000 = mount.bin cannot remount /dev/loop2 read-write, is write protected

    I dont know what to do right now, and I don't want to lost all my data
    The link to the G+ thread is:
    https://plus.google.com/109294183351...ts/2dmYUKPXQjt

    And the errors that I get in the console are:




    Is there anything that I sould try?
    Thank you

    It has been suggested to install 12.2 then upgrade from there, that
    direct installation with fake raid and 12.3 does not work.

    I don't understand what you've posted.
    The 2 images describe 2 different types of problems...

    The first screen describes a GPU related problem, but I'm not sure how you could have gotten to that point (after selecting your kernel) if the second screen error happened (pretty sure that should have happened <before> or <immediately after> selecting a kernel in the GRUB menu. Or, maybe the first screen is attempting to boot normally and the second is attempting to boot in Emergency/Recovery Mode?

    So,
    I guess the main questions are
    - What are you upgrading from (what OS, OS version)?
    - What procedure did you follow attempting to upgrade?
    - What is your GPU?

    PS - "Enterprise" approach to upgrading any kind of RAID is to do a full backup, then build a new "empty/default" machine, then restore your old files to the new machine... But the errors you posted don't give me any hint you've run into a storage related problem... yet. Your problems are separate and before storage is an issue.

    Hi Tsu, the two images above are errors that I recive upon the startup of the operating system (openSuSE 12.3). The errors appeared after a zypper dup command, the last time when I reinstalled my whole system was right after 12.1 was released and then I setup my 2 drives ( 1 TB ) into software raid 1, no problems sience then. I was running only openSuSE from 10.2 until the latest 12.3, no other OS were installed on the computer.
    So what I did next: I tryed to boot up with 12.2 as Carlos suggested but with no luck the same error appeared on Live KDE, then I booted with 12.1 Live KDE and the system started up, I was able to read and write into the /, /home partitions, so I decided to replace the 12.3 with 12.1 and see if I can do a backup of my data (400GB+). The installation went OK, I was able to finish it but right after the first reboot the booting process stoped asked for the root password, the system was unable to mount the /home partition, then I executed e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/md1. So eveytime that i booted up the system the same problem with the mount of the /home partition. Now I run a surface test of the hard drives ( the first one is OK, and the second one just reached 380GB tested and it is ok ). I will let you know if the drives are ok. As I said the ram is ok, the video test went ok. So my only conclusion is that the ext4 filesystem has broken for unknow reason.

    The surface tests went ok and the drives have no bad sectors.
    Running the command fdisk -l gives me this:

    right now I was able to mount the partition manualy and I'm trying to copy my important data to an external drive.
    I even did a video memory stress test and all 10 tests were successfully.

    Try

    Code:
    file -s /dev/md0
    file -s /dev/md1
    file -s /dev/md2
    And if it finds a filesystem, do a fsck on each one, forced if necessary.

    So it mounts - using what oS version? I'm a bit lost after all your
    testings.

    I'm not sure that is FAKE raid, but normal software raid.

    Hello Carlos, right now I'm running 12.1

    Code:
    linux-8xwg:/home/ovidiu # file -s /dev/md0
    /dev/md0: Linux rev 1.0 ext4 filesystem data, UUID=aa09132b-e405-4399-b3c7-ee50f2657516 (needs journal recovery) (extents) (large files) (huge files)

    after that:
