Thread: Kernel-firmware update 20181026-lp150.2.6.1 locks up system

    Default Re: Kernel-firmware update 20181026-lp150.2.6.1 locks up system

    This new kernel also borked my network but system still boots. Acer Laptop with i7-6500u and Nvidia 940MX so it is one of those "infernal optimus" systems we all love so well. This is a snapshot of the hardware id'd via opensuse as an image capture.



    I did snapper back and get it running again and then tried to redo the update. Same result. Now I will rollback to the previous kernel until a fix is hopefully found.

    Regards,
    Bill

    Update:

    Since it cares not for my image the network adapter is:
    Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Wireless Network Adapter

    The issue is with the kernel-firmware package. After rollback, lock that package and you can install the other updates. AFAIK a fixed package is on the way

    Thanks for the update! I have the older kernel loaded and locked for now.

    It would be great, if how you reboot after disabling wlan and bluetooth were explained. My system still locks up during boot. I'm booted now with a rescue DVD and I've got the new RPM copied into /usr/src as a temporary stash, but since "/" is actually mounted as "/mnt" in the rescue boot, it is unclear how I can straightforwardly replace the .ko files in /lib/modules/4.12.15-lp159.12.*/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ath.

    What would happen if I simply removed the lp150.12.28 version, leaving lp150.12.25?

    This certainly is painful.

    Some assumption:

    Your rescue DVD is using a 64-bit kernel.

    The network is still working in rescue mode.

    If those assumptions are correct, then try:

    Code:
    mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
    mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
    mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
    cp /etc/resolv.conf /mnt/etc/resolv.conf
    chroot /mnt
    mount -a   ### this should mount anything missing, including btrfs subvolumes
    yast
    That should give you a command line (ncurses) version of yast. It's a bit harder to use than the GUI version, but it still works. Use that to install the older firmware version.
    Then
    Code:
    exit
    That gets you out of the "chroot" environment. Reboot and see if your system now starts properly.

    It's not the kernel, it's the kernel-firmware package. If you force the install of the DVD version, then reboot you should be back in business. The bug is in the kernel-firmware package, no need to replace the kernel.

    Tweaked for paranoia:

    Well, it seems the network is _not_ up and the installation of

    kernel-firmware-20180525-lp150.2.3.1.noarch.rpm
    requires a network. I'll be back tomorrow.
