Boot issue following recent kernel update

I recently updated kernel to kernel-default-6.8.6-1.1 on my openSUSE Tumbleweed KDE 6 [Wayland] and had to revert previous one snapshot .

The system hangs during the boot process. After selecting the OS in the GRUB menu and removing “splash=silent quiet” from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, it still stalls at a specific point, which I’ve captured in an attached photo.

openSUSE Paste - results of the inxi -Faz command after reverting snapshot.

I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions on what might be causing this issue and how to resolve it. If anyone has encountered a similar problem or knows any potential fixes, please share your insights.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Looks like a recently introduced bug

Likely introduced in 6.8.5 by one or more of the following (3) commits
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux.git/log/?h=linux-6.8.y&qt=grep&q=e1000e

On the Internet:

I would recommend filing an issue here:
https://bugzilla.suse.com/

I suggest https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/ if a bug report is needed for filing an openSUSE Tumbleweed bug.

I have the exact same GPU, and no apparent trouble with LT kernel:

Thank you, I’ve filed the issue on openSUSE’s BugZilla

Thanks :sweat_smile:
So it seems that I need to wait for the problem to be resolved and for a patch to appear in Factory?

Yes, you should wait for a kernel update upstream. Meanwhile you may temporarily lock the 6.8.4 kernel so you can receive system updates (less the kernel) until the problem is solved.
