    Default a start job is running for /dev/sda2 (Xmin Ymin / nolimit)

    This is a fresh zypper dupgrade from 15.3 to 15.4. As yet I have been unable to make it boot the 15.4 kernel, getting as far as the $SUBJECT message, where the minutes and seconds count continuously. It started as a fresh 15.2 default KDE installation, which was eventually zypper dupgraded to 15.3. The difference this time is before booting the new kernel for the first time, because / had no LABEL, I did:
    Code:
    # btrfs filesystem label / openSUSEleap
    These are the two kernels' first displayed grub.cfg stanzas:
    Code:

    If there's any difference, it's escaping me. Possibly relevant excerpts from journal & other info:

    What exactly could be the nature of start job that is failing here, which I can't imagine having anything to do with anything other than the BTRFS label creation? Old kernel boots completely normally, but not the new.

    Question Re: a start job is running for /dev/sda2 (Xmin Ymin / nolimit)

    @mrmazda:

    Possibly a Distribution Upgrade corner issue …
    • What happens with a brute-force re-install by means of a Leap 15.4 ISO image?

    I didn't put them there. I doubt my brother changed any defaults when he did the original 15.2 installation, so they're probably 15.2 defaults. Was yours an "expert" installation? This laptop is ancient, so no UEFI BIOS.

    The only boots that get far enough to write the journal come from using the old kernel. What would I be looking for/at in successes?

    The only boots that get far enough to write the journal come from using the old kernel. What would I be looking for/at in successes?
    Nothing to worry about. You may want to check the kernel command line. On one occasion dup created a real mess: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...ight=multipath

    Default Re: a start job is running for /dev/sda2 (Xmin Ymin / nolimit)

    Boot with rd.break=pre-trigger or rd.break=initqueue (not sure if initqueue happens before or after), run rdsosreport and provide /run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt. The same file from the kernel that boots would be useful as reference (you can boot with rd.break to stop just before switching to real root).

    I tried to test your procedure using the bootable 15.3 kernel. With either of the two rd.breaks on boot cmdline, I get unknown filesystem types for vfat, ext2 and ext3 trying to mount my USB sticks that I would be trying to save those logs to, and also ext4, which is /home's type.

    Rdsosreport.txt with booting rd.break=initqueue is 86k. How can I save it?

    You can manually mount root and save there or prepare USB stick with btrfs (as your root filesystem is btrfs, it should be available in initrd). Or configure dracut to add additional kernel drivers.
