Thread: Runs only with the recovery version

  1. #1

    Default Runs only with the recovery version

    Hi All,
    I have a 32 bit HP Compaq nc8230 and install a fresh Thumbleweed 4.19.1.0. The instalation was OK and run well. After the first update and reboot, the screen show nothing. That's is a fresh installation and my option was use the recovery version from that installation, and for my surprise that runs OK. Today, 27NOV2018, I have update the system, and put more two entry, the new version entry and recovery.
    After reboot, the new entry don't runs, but when I use the recovery functions it runs fine. That is, all the 2 main entries don't run or don't show the screen; but all the 2 recovery versions runs fine.
    I think something is wrong, but I don't know very I begin solve this problem.
    Someone can help me?
    Thanks

    Hi and welcome to the forum
    Likely the old ATI video card, at boot in the grub screen can you add the kernel boot option;

    Code:
    nomodeset
    Also how did you update the system? Hopefully with zypper dup only?

    Will also move post to the Install/Boot subforum

    I can sometimes boot to multi-user without using nomodeset and startx will produce a temporarily working Plasma5, which is how I got the inxi above. Everything seems normal with 4.18.15 kernel. Booting 4.19.5 without nomodeset eventually goes fubar, either requiring power button to recover, or rebooting on its own. Trying to get journal from prior boot produces message that journal file was truncated and is being ignored, so I can find no evidence of oops or segfault in journal of previous boots.

    Removing the X600 card to use onboard i945G didn't help anything with 4.19.5.

    I installed vanilla and default 4.19.5 kernels. Vanilla spontaneously rebooted very quickly after initrd loaded. Default kernel so far is working as well as 4.18.15-1-pae.
