I dont know why this just started happening with my OpenSuSe version 13.1. But when I boot I get a hung splash screen I then press the “esc” key and there are a few lines that read…
dependendcy failed for /home run systemctl -b blah blah
sorry to be so vauge but I cannot copy and pate the text becuase the system does not allow any keyboard input. I know the hardware is still good b/c I dual boot and the Windows OS still works fine.
So I then try to boot my system into rescue mode (ISO copied to USB). I am using software RAID (two disks) with LUKS & LVM
part_1 = windows
part_2 = windows
part_3 = Linux with boot flag
part_4 = swap (?)
part_5 = Linux
The LUKS is on /dev/md126p5 according to the output of cryptsetup luksDump. So then try to open it:
# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/md126p5 cr_lvm Enter passphrase for /dev/md126p5: /dev/mapper/temporary-cryptsetup-1697: mknod for temporary-cryptsetup-1697 failed: Read-only file system Failed to open temporary keystore device. Command failed with code 5: Failed to open temporary keystore device.
I cannot open the LUKS partition to start troubleshoot the problem(s).
