I have an issue with the newest image of tumbleweed. I can’t boot into it! I get to grub, then both the failsafe and normal boot option error. What happens is as follows:
- Pi boots to grub
- Option is selected
- takes longer than leap to load linux image and initrd.vmx
- black screen, white writing:
Initramfs unpacking failed: write error
Kernel panic - not syncing: no working init found.
It then reboots after 90 seconds
Leap image works fine.
I am booting off the USB but same error with SD card, the only modification I have made to the pi is enabling usb boot!
I am using a Mac keyboard which has caused issues (if plugged in, pi doesn’t find usb boot stick, but error persists without keyboard plugged in. I am yet to try without keyboard, booting of SD)
I am using the 64bit os
Thanks in advance for your help!
Hi and welcome to the Forum
I have an open bug report on this… (I boot from USB as well)
Add yourself and ask for an update…?
I also use a serial connection as well…
Thank for such a speedy response!
I’ll add myself now
I’ve found a fix I’m happy to say
At the grub menu press c
linux /boot/linux.vmx root=/dev/sda2 to
Then, to update grub once logged in,
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
Be sure to contribute your fix to the bug report.
