(Ben Bullard) #103

Yes, thanks @TPG. Verified fixed.

Sound issue also verified fixed.

The issue above about slow booting due to some systemd services I think, am pretty sure is fixed. So there should no longer be any need to disable or mask services for that.


(Ben Bullard) #104

I am seeing a problem with booting in VBox only not on hardware:

Post-edit: OK, I have not timed it but booting in VBox take 2 maybe 3 minutes. There have been no changes, disabling, or masking of any systemd services in this VM.

Nothing revealing here but I can guarantee you that it is not booting in 5-10 seconds. So maybe another command is needed to trace what’s wrong?

$ systemd-analyze
Startup finished in 1.007s (kernel) + 1.084s (initrd) + 6.539s (userspace) = 8.631s
graphical.target reached after 5.862s in userspace

So here are some logs:

dmesg.txt (51.8 KB)

boot.log.txt (154.0 KB)

I have not investigated those logs just generated and posted them so far.


(Ben Bullard) #105

So if you update your Cooker install and see all these errors:

I know a work around for that:

Which indicates we have some duplicates that maybe devs would want to remove?


(Ben Bullard) #106

Also there are some repos enabled that are empty. If they are empty they are useless. For one there is never anything in Updates repos in Cooker. Also can be disabled is ‘openmandriva-x86_64.repo’ both release and updates. They are not in use yet either.
So you end up with what long time Cooker users are used to 4 repos only:

If you don’t believe me that the ones I disabled are empty then simply go to the URL’s and look.


(Ben Bullard) #107

There is also:

cooker-nonfree-i686.repo
cooker-non-free-x86_64.repo
cooker-nonfree-x86_64.repo
cooker-nonfree-x86_64-source.repo

Only one of those exists in x86_64 or i686 repos:

cooker-non-free-x86_64.repo

So currently there is no ‘cooker-non-free-i686.repo’ which does exist and the 3 with no hyphen (nonfree) do not exist. Interesting huh? :grin:

:see_no_evil::hear_no_evil::speak_no_evil:

Post-edit: User Information: For now none of the repos in ‘/etc/yum.repos.d’ beginning with ‘openmandriva’ are used. I presume they are for Lx 4.0 release after repos get split.

:monkey:


(Ben Bullard) #108

Regarding the issue with: systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service: Service lacks both ExecStart= and ExecStop= setting. Refusing.

I timed a boot in VBox @ 2 minutes 45 seconds. I don’t have a clue for any work around.

In dmesg:

[Sat Nov 10 20:37:46 2018] systemd[1]: /lib/systemd/system/systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service:13: Executable "-watch" not found in path "/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin", ignoring
[Sat Nov 10 20:37:46 2018] systemd[1]: systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service: Service lacks both ExecStart= and ExecStop= setting. Refusing.

FWIW: There is /usr/bin/watch on this VBox system.

Not to surprisingly journalctl shows:

Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: systemd-ask-password-plymouth.path: Refusing to start, unit to trigger not loaded.
Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: Failed to start Forward Password Requests to Plymouth Directory Watch.
-- Subject: Unit systemd-ask-password-plymouth.path has failed

and later in the process:

Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: /lib/systemd/system/systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service:13: Executable "-watch" not found in path "/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sb>
Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: systemd-ask-password-plymouth.service: Service lacks both ExecStart= and ExecStop= setting. Refusing.
Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: Started Reload Configuration from the Real Root.

-- Unit basic.target has finished shutting down.
Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: systemd-ask-password-plymouth.path: Refusing to start, unit to trigger not loaded.
Nov 10 20:37:46 omv systemd[1]: Failed to start Forward Password Requests to Plymouth Directory Watch.
-- Subject: Unit systemd-ask-password-plymouth.path has failed

And it is possible I missed something. :thinking: (The log files are above in post # 104 with a screen shot.)

Testing in VBox virtual machines.
Plasma ISO build ID 2280 fresh install, after full updates - of course lots of packages coming from mass rebuild - I am stuck with this

or this, if I don’t switch plymouth to system boot messages

I can get a VT, in case, and run commands. But nothing else…

In my opinion it’s time to build a new up-to-date ISO :wink:

fixed in plymouth

Unfortunately i still do not have any idea why system-udev-settle takes some much time.

New ISO is available 2315

This ISO ships:
kernel-release 4.19.2
KDE Plasma 5.14.3
KF 5.52.0
New smooth boot process (plymouth, kernel etc)

Many fixed bugs. Boot time around 5 seconds in vbox.


(Colin Close) #114

Will try it tomorrow


#115

Unfortunately, the new ISO still does not work for me. Still the same problem as in BUG 2381 :cry: :penguin:

(rugyada) #117

QA, testers and users willing to help please test the latest ISO build ID 2315.
Thanks.


(luca) #118

Same here in live mode.


#119

@luca can you post in bug topic details of your hardware equipment (mostly CPU)?


(luca) #120

Done.


(Ben Bullard) #121

Getting ready to test ISO 2315.

Some bugs I’m aware of in addition to the Graphics/Wonderful black screen issue that @AngryPenguin and @luca have.

  1. Duplicate repos leading to error message when users update with dnf. The duplicates are i686 main and x86_64 main both are listed twice. Described here.

  2. Incorrectly named repos for non-free. There are as I recall 3 entries for nonfree instead of non-free. Described here.

  3. VirtualBox setting for “Show Toolbar” is not respected. Users has to set this again every time they open VBox. Screen-shot to come in next post.

  4. Will add/subtract to list as I test. There are more I can’t remember at the moment.


(Ben Bullard) #122

Here is what VirtualBox (v. 5.22) looks like every time I open it in Fully updated Cooker.

This is what I want and am used to it to looking like:

Yet the setting is simply not respected or remembered by VirtualBox. I have to select ‘Show Toolbar’ every time I open VirtualBox.


VirtualBox kernel modules will not load on boot (even with dkms)
