timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by x2duuid

getting the below error when i start up my machine. i cannot even log into my machine.

timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by x2duuid

Please more, much more information!

Does this happen right after installation? After something you did to the system? After it running for years and it now happens at once?

We know nothing about your system, yor daily use of it or anything and we are not clairvoyant.

been running it for some months now. just started today refusing to boot. I did not change anything on the system

That sounds like some hardware problem on the disk then.

I assume you have written down that message from the screen and then typed it above in the post. Are you sure that it that is done correct? Particulary the name of the device:

dev-disk-by x2duuid

To give us an idea how early in the boot process this happens, are there any messages before his? When yes, maybe post the last two or three lines here.

How many disks do you have in the system?

Do you have a multi-boot system, When yes, do other systems boot?

gives an error

Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by\x2duud-[a long list of letters and numbers]
Dependency failed for Resume from hibernation using device /dev/disk/by-uuid/[long list of numbers and letters]

I only have 1 disk without any dual boot. It gets stuck on the below

A start job is running for dev-disk-by-x2duuid-[long list of numbers and letters](30min 45s / no limit)

I have seen that “A start job is running …” earlier here on the forums.

Using Google with

site:forums.opensuse.org A start job is running for

you will get a list of them.

BTW is this a boot or a resume (I ask because that is in one of the messages)?

its at boot. i cant even boot into my os

Boot from any live media (openSUSE installation DVD in rescue mode would do just fine) and check - can you access this disk?

And take a look at ur /etc/fstab file, check it for that media disk, if there will be 2 or more disks try to comment it and load ur system.
Its seems system cant find that disk.
