    Default unable to boot with kernel 5.7

    Hi everybody,

    this issue looks like some others posted yesterday, but not exactly so I open a new thread.

    Since last update (yesterday night, previous one was ~2 days ago) booting time is very long, but it does'nt end up with a functional graphic interface. Login screen is displayed more than once. NumLock key indicator is not coherent, task bar won't show up, etc...
    I have no Nvidia card, nor WiFi, which seemed to create conflicts as reported in other threads.

    When I boot with previous kernel (5.6.14-1) everything works fine as usually.

    Here is the output of journalctl -b -p 0..4 (got from CLI after booting with kernel 5.7.1-1) :

    https://pastebin.com/raw/Y0Qep4XS

    My config :
    • Tumbleweed 20200615
    • KDE Plasma 5.19.0
    • Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics
    • issue appears with kernel 5.7.1-1


    I'd be glad to read your advice, thanks in advance.

    Erik

    Upgrade your kernel. 5.7.2 hit the mirrors on Friday (my local time). I suggest to boot the 5.6.14 kernel, remove the 5.7.1 kernel, then install the 5.7.2 kernel. That way you don't need worry that your default zypper configuration would remove your working old kernel on installation of a newer one that also might not boot.

    Thanks for your reply and OK, I'll wait for 5.7.2 to appear on Friday at zypper dup and install it. I didn't remove 5.7.1 because I'm not sure to do it correctly but I changed multiversion.kernels option in my /etc/zypper/zypp.conf that way :

    Code:
    multiversion.kernels = latest,latest-1,latest-2,running,5.6.14-1.6
    which might provide a triple safety since 5.6 will be the running kernel, the latest-2 and is namely specified ... What would you say about it ?

    (Besides that, it's the first time I encounter such an issue with a new kernel - is it a bug, or does the problem come from my system / config / hardware ???)

    It could be either. To find out would at least require some information about your hardware, but probably needs confirmation from others with similar hardware, or filing a new bug if a matching existing one could not be found. Output from the following (enclosed using code tags) should provide most of what we would need to know:
    Code:
    inxi -bxx
    5.7.2 is already available on the mirrors via zypper dup. By Friday there could be an even newer version, since 5.7.3 has already been released upstream.

    For Tumbleweed, I use:
    Code:
    multiversion.kernels = oldest,latest,latest-1
    That kept me a known working 5.5 kernel as a fall back. However, 5.7.1 booted without problems here. So I removed the older 5.5 kernel. And now the oldest is a 5.6 kernel. I'll keep that around until there is a successful boot with a 5.8 kernel.

    To remove an older kernel, I use Yast, and search for "kernel". Then I use the "Versions" tab to find the version that I wish to remove. There may also be a "kernel-default-devel", "kernel-devel" of the same version to remove (if you install those. And I guess there's a kernel source, but I have been installing kernel sources.

    Not a whole lot of difference between OP's MSI that doesn't boot 5.7, and my Asus that does:

    I hadn't noticed the 'oldest' options. That's what I need.

    I see 5.7.2 disappeared from the mirrors.
    So harware is maybe not the key.
    I'm still waiting for the new kernel, for now it does'nt appear in available updates, so I delayed them.

    The update of tumbleweed of last week Friday, ruined my system (Dell Inspiron 15)
    Tried to reinstall also failed booting.
    Then I installed Leap 15.1. Worked until I updated to last state. And then also failed.
    tried Ubuntu and fedora to see if my hardware failed. But they run well.
    Seems a grub2 EFI problem, but I can not find the issue.

    Co incident, my other computer (Desktop) had at the same tumbleweed update a file system reducing it self from 900+ G to 8G. Only this system runs well after a reinstall.
