Thread: 13.1 after an update: "Want me to fall back to....?(Y/n) & splash screen. Unresponsive. No boot.

  1. #1

    Default 13.1 after an update: "Want me to fall back to....?(Y/n) & splash screen. Unresponsive. No boot.

    Thank you all for your input. I am learning a lot from this! (I am new to linux, so be gentle )

    I installed some updates on the 8th / 9th.
    When I turn on the laptop it just stalls at the green chameleon screen. If press ESC I see this:


    Code:
    RAID set "isw_chfijbfgbc_HDD0" was activated
    The dynamic shared library "libdmraid-events-isw.so" could not be loaded:
        libdmraid-events-isw.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    
    usb 2-2: (I can type all of these out if necessary!)
    usb 2-5: 
    isb 2-6:  
    usb 2-7:   
    
    .....................Could not find /dev/mapper/isw_chfijbfgbc_HDD0_part7.
    Want me to fall back to /dev/disk/by-id/raid-isw_chfijbfgbc_HDD0_part7? (Y/n)

    No matter what I press it just goes to the splash screen, and when I press ESC, it's back to the (Y/n)? part.

    Because I have dual boot set up with windows 8, I can access the logs with LinuxReader.
    I also have the RESCUE option available at boot.

    I thought maybe my problem is similar to this post "boot problem after lvm2 update" but my lvm.conf says use_lvmetad = 0

    What are my options?

    Try selecting different kernel versions (go to Advanced menu). Does anyone work?

    Do you have /boot as separate filesystem? How large is it?

    Thanks for your reply.

    On the advanced menu of grub2 I have the following options:

    openSuse 13.1 with Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop
    openSuse 13.1 with Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop (recovery mode)

    I cannot tell where /boot lives or how to check it's size.

    Well, you can boot a Linux live CD, and run in a terminal "parted -l" of
    "fdisk -l", then post the output here.

    /boot is a directory where the files needed for booting are. And in some
    cases, like when using LVM or raid, it is also a partition. As the
    message you posted is about raid, it is possible you have a separate
    /boot partition.

    Major breakthrough

    At the prompt where the system was stuck, I pressed Ctrl + Alt + F1 (I think) and it brought me to another terminal it seems.

    This is the last of the output there:

    Code:
    [1.200039] ACPI: Power Button [PWRF]
    [1.204793] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810

    [1.2.....] microcode: CPU3 updated to revision 0x16, date = 2013-08-08
    I pressed enter, and the desktop GUI magically loaded. It didn't ask me to login though, which it usually does.

    Thank you for the suggestion, but this option results in the same error / prompt.

    Thank you for the response.

    When the desktop loaded, I got the following for "parted -l"

    At this point, with your system booted, it could be interesting to see
    the output of "df -h".

    But you have some other (big?) problem below...

    Well, you could send that to openSUSE bugzilla.


    But at this point I don't know if there is some big problem with your
    hard disk. It could be defective.

    You could try with "smartctl -a /dev/sda", maybe it says something useful.

    Just so you know, I have RAID0 configuration with 2 SSDs. Windows works like it should.

    http://paste.opensuse.org/6d27d137

    After the computer goes to sleep, on "wake up," nothing can be accessed or seen, just black screen and i have to Ctrl + Alt + Shift + PrtScrn + r + e + i + s + u + b

    Almost forgot:
    When I press Enter on that one paused terminal that I described in the beginning, the very next line that it prints out is 'Out of Memory". Then other stuff is displayed, and then the desktop is loaded.

    Thank you again for your help!

    I'm guessing that is one of those fake-raid setups. Needs a driver in
    Windows and Linux, so that the raid can be seen in both.

    Maybe there is a problem with the Linux driver, whatever that is. I'm
    not experienced with that setup (I do not want to use them (fake
    raids)). dmraid.

    And I see it is a UEFI setup.

    Thanks. It looks fine. The problem is not there.

    I think it means that we don't know what all of the parameters are. Bad
    for us.

    There are many labeled "Unknown_Attribute". :-(

    I don't know how to interpret this output, it is not a rotating plate
    disk, but flash. Too many unknowns. It doesn't seem likely that there
    are bad sectors, though, which is what I was expecting to find.

    Out of memory? What could it be?

    How much RAM do you have?

    The swap partition looks small to me.
