Thread: Updated kernel today - black screen + cursor after "loading initial RAM disk"

  1. #1

    Default Updated kernel today - black screen + cursor after "loading initial RAM disk"

    Hy!

    Updated the install of 15.1 KDE (no extra repos, except Mozilla) on my Dell Precision M6400 this morning, after reboot I get a black screen with a cursor after "loading initial RAM disk", no further boot messages even after sitting there for 20 min. (Two other Leap 15.1 just doing fine after the update...).

    Booting to the older kernel 4.12.14-lp151-27default works just fine.

    Any ideas how to debug this? Many thanks in advance...
    Kind regards

    Boot into the new kernel, shutdown, than boot into the old working kernel and post (to get an Xorg.log from the non working one):
    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old

    Same with me. Installed Leap 15.1 last week, basically worked fine. Updated to 4.12.14-lp151.28.4 this morning, resulting in blackscreen at boot. Previous snapshot 4.12.14-lp151.27 works.

    ...removed Nouveau-stuff and rebooted, didn't help.

    Don't think this will help:

    Is there any way to remove the nonfunctional kernel? Don't want to have it as default boot option....
    Kind regards

    Thats an Xorg.0.log from the working (old) kernel.....

    ...as I wrote, the black screen is directly after the "loading initial RAM disk", so I don't think there will be anything XOrg....

    I marked the new kernel in YaST for deletion, will recreate the bootloader afterwards and hope I have a functional boot config afterwards, or?
    Kind regards

    Worked! The functional is default boot option again....
