Grub2 script errors during upgrade

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f5b249123d8> #<Tag:0x00007f5b24911f00>

yep clean all and then update appears to have worked.
I got 2 possible gremlins…one for grub2 scriplet failing and the other maybe missing packages relating to network

but I have rebooted OK
and I have ethernet OK

thanks for reading

To address the issues:

dracut: dracut module 'ifcfg' depends on 'network', which can't be installed
dracut: dracut module 'cifs' depends on 'network', which can't be installed
dracut: dracut module 'nfs' depends on 'network', which can't be installed

Those are warning produced by dracut command and you will see them every time dracut runs. dracut will run every time a kernel is installed. They don’t mean anything and are left over from past, those modules would only be used on really ancient computers.

Developers have been asked if they could please remove those warnings but so far they haven’t. No idea why they don’t remove those. But we keep having to explain this over and over.

Now to next part where

What you posted does not show any boot-able entry created by grub2 but I see you snipped the output:

snip

snip

The part after that second snip is where we could see if the script actually did what it should or failed. So if you could run this command which will run that script again and post all the output here we could perhaps get this sorted:

$ sudo update-grub2

@aus9 an example of output from command ‘sudo update-grub2’ on Rock x86_64 system with 3 different kernels installed.

So to explain: For each kernel you have installed you should see 2 lines of code like this:

Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-5.5.2-desktop-1omv4001
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd-5.5.2-desktop-1omv4001.img

These lines you would only see on a multi-boot system and they are entries for other operating systems on other partitions:

Found OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 (4.2) on /dev/nvme0n1p5
Found OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 (4.2) on /dev/nvme0n1p7
Found OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 (4.2) on /dev/nvme0n1p9

Hoping this is helpful for you and other users. Please let us know what you find on your system and if there is a problem it should be fairly easy to get corrected. Sometimes when a kernel is installed there is a script failure and normally it is corrected by either reinstalling the kernel package or re-running dracut and update-grub2 commands.

Post-edit-FWIW: The command to see what kernel you a using is uname -a. For an updated Rock system likely you would see:

$ uname -a
Linux ben-Lx41-64 5.5.2-desktop-1omv4001 #1 SMP Mon Feb 10 17:03:42 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

as requested…

I noticed that your screenshot appears to detect different kernels
while my output shows no detected kernels.

I repeat I have rebooted OK…so I am not fussed by this.

I did want to bring it to someone’s attention in case it was important.

EDIT

FWIW my booting grub2.cfg has this entry

You are correct in that if everything is working no need to get fussed. When you get some time could you please post output of this command:

$ ls -lh /boot

That just lists what in in /boot directory so I can see if anything is missing.

Sometimes simply removing and reinstalling the kernel package will resolve this. To do that:

$ sudo dnf remove kernel-release-desktop-5.5.2-1.znver1

$ sudo dnf install kernel-release-desktop-5.5.2-1.znver1

I decided to do this first. And IMHO I have now decided to get fussy!

reason is your first command now done as my second command shows

ls -lh /boot

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7.6M Feb 11 01:18 vmlinuz-5.5.2-desktop-1omv4001

but the second kernel is not getting into my grub.cfg.

so then I did another update-grub2 with root powers and got this

sudo update-grub2
Updating /boot/grub2/locale..
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found theme: /boot/grub2/themes/OpenMandriva/theme.txt
Found background: /boot/grub2/themes/OpenMandriva/terminal_background.png

so then I search for 5.5.2 get no hits for the following command
true|cat /boot/grub2/grub.cfg | grep 5.5.2
but if I change it to search if true for hits of 5.5.0 I get heaps.

this time a screen shot as it shows up better IMHO
I have reversed the order so you can see no hits for 5.5.2 at bottom of konsole.

Therefore…for what ever reason…do you wish me to make a bug report?

Something is definitely wrong. First post output ot this:

$ dnf repolist

Post-edit: Forgot this part: Then if that looks OK then yes we would like to get a bug report on this.

Hi
as requested with a bonus reply :wink:

you may notice there are still some repo errors.

but…
true|cat /boot/grub2/grub.cfg | grep 5.5.2
now gives me all the hits I desire.

I think we can now mark this as solved. Just a gremlin when there was a failed update IMHO.

Yes that update where grub2 script runs now shows you with normal looking out put for both kernels so you should have boot entries for both in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and you should be able to boot to both kernels. So this problem is fixed.

Note about your repositories. Normally people just use the main, unsupported, restricted, non-free and the update repos for those 4. All that debug stuff is for developers and is not hardly used in Rock/Lx 4.1. My Rock systems all look like this screen shot:

Also so you and other users know the restricted repos that return 404 Cannot download error don’t have any packages in them. So they are empty and dnf does not have a metadata file to find so it will list those as 404 Cannot download. No worries for those.

@aus9 in view of some of the weird things we have seen with your system you could try to disable all the debug repos and leave only the ones in my screen shot enabled and then do this to maybe straighten out your system (hopefully):

$ sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf --best --allowerasing distro-sync

hi

Before I post my output…for my own selfish benefit I looked at the timestamps for files under /etc/yum.d
all are older dates of Mar 13…my install date except this one
-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 10080 Mar 15 13:52 openmandriva-rock-znver1.repo

Is that the correct file to have been adjusted?

IMHO there is still something going on if true. I can upload my contents to a file sharing site if you like but
first here is my command output

as you can see rock-testing-znver1-restricted-debuginfo, rock-testing-znver1-non-free-debuginfo are allegedly disabled?
and so should show enabled=0 in the file I named?

but snippets show
[rock-znver1-restricted-debuginfo]
name=“OpenMandriva Rock - Restricted - znver1 - Debug”
…enabled=1

[rock-updates-znver1-restricted-debuginfo]
name=“OpenMandriva Rock - Restricted - znver1 - Updates - Debug”
…enabled=1

[rock-testing-znver1-restricted-debuginfo]
name=“OpenMandriva Rock - Restricted - znver1 - Testing - Debug”

Look I think you get the idea. …Maybe I should grab the file off the usb install media and see if that is the same…or does it suggest
somehow I inherited a dev’s configs?

cheers

First point:

What I said was:

@aus9 in view of some of the weird things we have seen with your system you could try to disable all the debug repos and leave only the ones in my screen shot enabled and then do this to maybe straighten out your system (hopefully):

$ sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf --best --allowerasing distro-sync

Meaning that first you disable all the unnecessary (and possible problem causing) debug repositories and then run that command. Simply running the command won’t change anything.

Second point:

Very important question: So where did you get the ISO file you are using?

Normally when you install OM Lx 4.1/Rock you would have only 2 repositories enabled (and only 2). This is very well and strongly established protocol by our developers. When you first boot into a freshly installed system by default you should have these and only these enabled:

$ dnf repolist
repo id                                                                               repo name
rock-updates-znver1                                                                 OpenMandriva Rock - znver1 - Updates
rock-znver1                                                                          OpenMandriva Rock - znver1

If your install media shows any repos enabled beyond those 2 then do not use that install media. Something is really wrong. If immediately after you install OM Lx 4.1 you have any repos enabled besides those 2 something is very wrong.

Third point:

If a user does want maximum availability of software then they could able only the additional repos shown in screen shot in this post. (An exception is that gamers and some other users needing to install 3rd party software may need to also enable a few i686 repos.)

Post-edit: Yes I acknowledge that the situation with repositories in OpenMandriva is confusing to users. However it is of utmost importance that users understand what they are doing and do things in the correct way or there will be issues. Improperly configured repositories left alone for to long will lead to issues that can practically only be resolved by a fresh installation.

Apologies if the above post sounds to much like me ranting. As a QA person with OM the idea that there might be an ISO out there with all those repos enabled and worse that such an ISO might be accessible to users scares me.

I have no problem with people with passion so do not consider it a rant.

However, I had other matters to consider so have now put a different distro on my hd
I can not see how to close my account but will no longer reply.
