Thread: Tumbleweed fails to reach target on startup: systemd-journal-flush.service and CUPS scheduler fail t

  1. Default Tumbleweed fails to reach target on startup: systemd-journal-flush.service and CUPS scheduler fail t

    Hi,

    For some reason my openSUSE Tumbleweed system fails to reach its startup target (with its GUI). I also cannot access the command-line (which one can normally access via pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1, for example). systemd-journal-flush.service fails to start, as does the CUPS scheduler. As I mentioned in this previous thread I now have the kernel options:

    Code:
    plymouth.enable=0 splash=verbose
    but this does not seem to fix this problem. Any ideas of how to fix this problem?

    Thanks for your time,
    Brenton

    I attempted to fix this error by running:

    Code:
    btrfs check --repair /dev/sda2
    from a chroot into my Tumbleweed installation. This resulted in a segmentation fault error and after this I couldn't even start Tumbleweed before systemd would give me an error stating that it could not mount sysroot, at which point I was dumped into emergency mode. So I decided to reinstall Tumbleweed.

    btrfs check --repair is recommended as the last resort, its also supposed to be unmounted so if im reading correctly why did you "chroot"?

    Rofl, good question, yeah I didn't actually chroot into the Tumbleweed installation not sure why I said that, moment of confusion perhaps. /dev/sda2 was unmounted (I actually tried btrfs check --repair partly because I couldn't seem to mount /dev/sda2 as it gave bad superblock errors) when I ran btrfs check --repair.
