Updated the install of 15.1 KDE (no extra repos, except Mozilla) on my Dell Precision M6400 this morning, after reboot I get a black screen with a cursor after “loading initial RAM disk”, no further boot messages even after sitting there for 20 min. (Two other Leap 15.1 just doing fine after the update…).
Booting to the older kernel 4.12.14-lp151-27default works just fine.
Any ideas how to debug this? Many thanks in advance…
The same thing. On May 31 successfully upgraded opensuse leap 15.0 to 15.1 via zypper dup, and today, on June 03 upgraded kernel from 4.2.14-lp151.27-default to 4.2.14-lp151.28.4-default. The system hangs at black screen after reboot. When booting 4.2.14-lp151.28.4-default in recovery mode, the last message is ‘fb switching to nouveaufb from EFI VGA’, the system still hangs. I tried ‘nomodeset’ linux parameter in boot options, the system boots, but in VGA 640x480 mode. With the previous 4.2.14-lp151.27-default kernel the boot process finishes OK.
As implied by comment #3, if your gfxchip is nvidia, continue using the previous kernel (lp151.27). The current kernel (lp151.28) broke nouveau. To make not using the current lp151.28 kernel easier, and avoid accidentally using it, remove lp151.28.
hi I have the same problem when update the Kernel to 4.12.14.lp151.28.4 . after that there isn’t any graphical login screen , so i using the kernel 4.12.14.lp151.27 . i hope the OpenSuse leap team fix it soon.
In my (second) re-install of openSUSE Leap 15.1 I checked the online repositories when invited to use them as part of the install and the 4.12.14.lp151.28.4 was still there (and it is in YaST main update directory). How will we be advised when it’s safe for those with nvidia cards to update?
I’m just a user and I’m holding off updating anything.
