Thread: today's update problem

    Unhappy today's update problem

    Hi,
    Not sure if this might be noted here or not, but new leap 15.1 update released today prevent my sever to startup.
    It hangs after boot menu disappears.
    As I use btrfs I use snapper rollback and works fine.
    I use AMD threadripper 2950 and WX7100 radeonpro on gigabyte motherboard.

    Question Re: today's update problem

    @neocurve:

    Here, also with an AMD CPU, chipset and Graphics – the following patches which have occurred since Tuesday this week, haven't caused any issues at reboot:
    • 2020-01-14 15:47:12|install|kernel-firmware|20191118-lp151.2.9.1|
    • 2020-01-14 15:47:16|install|ucode-amd|20191118-lp151.2.9.1|

    The optional patch “openSUSE-2020-52” also hasn't caused any issues at reboot:
    • 2020-01-16 15:02:51|install|openslp|2.0.0-lp151.7.6.1|

    I installed it with “zypper update” – could also have used “zypper install patchpenSUSE-2020-52”

    Can you log into a VT session on the affected server?
    • If so, can you please take a look at the systemd journal for the boot which failed?

    “journalctl --boot=[ID][±offset]” or “journalctl -b [ID][±offset]”
    Use “journalctl --list-boots” to work out the ID or the offset of the boot which failed.

    Looking at that update list, most of them should not cause the problem that you describe. So my best guess is that it is the "ucode-amd" that is causing your problems.

    If you have enough access, you could try going back to the previous version. Or use your btrfs rollback to get a working system, then lock "ucode-amd" and try updating again with that package locked (to prevent update).

    Exclamation Re: today's update problem

    @neocurve:

    The 3 most recent Leap 15.1 “ucode-amd” updates I have here are:
    Code:
    2019-07-02 18:38:12|install|ucode-amd|20190312-lp151.2.3.1|
    2019-07-21 15:41:57|install|ucode-amd|20190618-lp151.2.6.1|
    2020-01-14 15:47:16|install|ucode-amd|20191118-lp151.2.9.1|
    In the change history for “ucode-amd” there's the following:
    * Mi Okt 23 2019 tiwai@suse.com
    .
    .
    - Drop the previous vega10_sos.bin revert, as already addressed in
    the new firmware

    * Do Aug 08 2019 tiwai@suse.de
    - Revert amdgpu/vega10_sos.bin to the previous version for fixing
    the hang up at boot time (bsc#1143331)
    Whether or not, your AMD CPU and/or graphics card are suffering something similar to the Vega 10 issue, is a moot point …
    • Please raise an openSUSE Bug Report against the “ucode-amd” package detailing what we've been discussing here.

    ucode-amd might not be the only one issue for this update.
    I have locked the package and updated leap but got the same result.
    I raise a bug to see if can go for smooth update.

    Thanks

    Are you using the amdgpu driver or, the radeon driver?
    • RadeonTM Pro WX 7100 is a “Polaris” – Arctic Islands – GCN4.x card.

    Recommended is the amdgpu driver, probably without any kernel command line parameter set but, “amdgpu.ngg=1” may, possibly, be needed.

    Code:
    VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Ellesmere [Radeon Pro WX 7100]
        Subsystem: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Device 0b0d
        Kernel driver in use: amdgpu
        Kernel modules: amdgpu
    So, it looks fine I think.
    Not sure how I can see or change "amdgpu.ngg=1"

    Easiest way is with

    Yast --> System --> Boot Loader

    then click on the "Kernel Parameters" tab.

    Thank you very much for your advice.
    I needed Radeon pro driver for my GPU and 15.1 is not supported at the moment.
    I just deleted my Leap and went for another supported distro.
    Thank you very much BTW for the help.
