After reboot, screen shows emergency mode. The following are error messages in RED as shown by journalctl -b:
unable to open rtc device
timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by-\x2dlabel-suse12.3_home.device
dependency failed for /home
dependency failed for Local File Systems
dependency failed for Remote File Systems (Pre)
Then I tried:
#mount /dev/sda9 /home
The screen then shows a green band at the bottom with green “openSUSE12.3 (Dartmouth) i586”. The rest of the screen is black. This seems to stay forever.
When I reboot again, I was able to boot into openSUSE 12.2 which uses legacy GRUB to chainload into Windows 7 and other Linux distros. I am in Suse12.2 to reply to your post.
Yes, udev coldplug service seems to be not run. Could folks, who have this problem, check that you have /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-udev-trigger.service and /usr/lib/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/systemd-udev-trigger.service as well as udev version and status of this service?
linux-vmd4:~ # rpm -q udev
linux-vmd4:~ # systemctl status systemd-udev-trigger.service

Seems that service that is expected to start before udev trigger is not started. Could you additionally paste output of “systemctl show systemd-udev-trigger.service” and “systemctl show systemd-vconsole-setup.service”? The former waits for the latter which is never started. I have here minimal text mode install of 12.3 so probably there is something missing on my system.
No problems! I appreciate your efforts in providing info so that our “emergency mode” problem will be resolved. I look forward to seeing this to become reality! By the way, have you submitted or seen any relevant bug report?
