Posted the beginnings of my recent problems with a fresh install of TW in another thread, but since then I downloaded another snap of TW, cloned it to usb drive and selected “upgrade” and the installer ran through the 160 MB of upgrades over the 11/1 snap to upgrade it to the 11/7 snap . . . .
Both times when the installer finished the install/upgrade the system rebooted right back into the TW install and everything worked in the GUI . . . this is in a '12 MacPro with 3 internal drives and 4 versions of OSX and 4 other versions of linux to choose from . . . the installer finds it way back to “sdb8 opensuse tumbleweed” and I can rifle around in the GUI, open apps . . . run zypper, etc. After the first install of the 11/1 snap I went into Yast and added the MATE pattern.
However, on cold boot and selecting the “EFI boot” disk which opens to Grub, when I select “TW” the screen immediately switching to variations of “crash” with errors like “efi not found” and other variations mentioning “kernel panic” or “trace dump” . . . I’ve tried the “recovery” options in Grub, same diff . . . .
From the 11/7 snap flash drive I can pick “boot from hard drive” and I can select “sdb8” and it goes to a command line that runs through a bunch of lines each saying “OK” . . . it has gotten down to something like “starting locale services” and then it “hangs” . . . I wait for a few minutes, then I go from there into TTY1, and I can log in and I can run commands . . . I ran the “efibootmgr” . . . and that shows a few systems, including the system that I wiped to install TW into, as being still there??
After I ran zypper ref && dup -l for the second time I saw an error “failed to import /etc/uefi/certs/188EA6FA.crt” . . . then I tried to see if I could launch a GUI app from the console so I ran “sudo gparted” . . . that failed . . . gave me a “GTK -warning 18:54:48:686: cannot open display” . . . .
As I mentioned in the other thread, over the same weekend I ran another distro install into an adjacent partition on the same disk as the TW install, and selected the “manual” or “expert” option and it all went well. Here in TW it seems to not be getting the bootloader data set properly in grub . . . I’m trying to avoid running through another install into the same partition . . . but multiple attempts to get “grub” updated don’t seem to be getting TW back into the GUI. Only right after install will it reboot into a fully working GUI, after that . . . no logging in to GUI desktop, only console system is working?
