[EN] [solved]cannot login 3.6.2
« on: 2012/11/02, 22:30:14 »
Hi!
I had to reinstall siduction last night. Everything went well. Then I did "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" and it went well also but now I cannot login the new kernel ( which is 3.6.2 ). Here is a part of my "grub.conf";
Code: [Select]

menuentry 'Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.6-2.towo-siduction-686' --class debian --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
insmod gzio
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 9bedf715-48d5-42e2-9bb2-2505f2ed5f9b
echo 'Loading Linux 3.6-2.towo-siduction-686 ...'
linux /vmlinuz-3.6-2.towo-siduction-686 root=UUID=d96b9d15-f25c-4eba-87dd-47ac990ddeee ro  quiet
echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd /initrd.img-3.6-2.towo-siduction-686
}
menuentry 'Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.4-4.towo-siduction-686' --class debian --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
insmod gzio
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 9bedf715-48d5-42e2-9bb2-2505f2ed5f9b
echo 'Loading Linux 3.4-4.towo-siduction-686 ...'
linux /vmlinuz-3.4-4.towo-siduction-686 root=UUID=d96b9d15-f25c-4eba-87dd-47ac990ddeee ro  quiet
echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd /initrd.img-3.4-4.towo-siduction-686
}


I can get a login screen with my name but I cannot type my password. The mouse and the keyboard are not responding. I am posting from the 3.4.4 kernel and everything is fine here.
What can I do?

Hi, and welcome!

Quote from: "laudire"
Everything went well.


Hmmm, well, not quite.  The current kernel is 3.6-5, so it looks like maybe you did not adjust your sources.  Take a look here -- you need the "base" siduction repo, as well as the Debian sid repo, as a minimum.

I'm using this combination for my /etc/apt/sources.list.d/siduction.list, which works well on my KDE system:

Code: [Select]
deb http://packages.siduction.org/base unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/base unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.siduction.org/extra unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/extra unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.siduction.org/user unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/user unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.siduction.org/fixes unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://packages.siduction.org/fixes unstable main contrib non-free


If you still have problems after fixing your repos,

Code: [Select]
inxi -v3 will display your hardware, and you can post that output in case there's a special hardware issue.

and I redid " apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" then I rebooted and 3.6.5 didn't show in the grub.conf as you can see;
Code: [Select]

Are you sure you wanted to have a separate boot partition? Or was this an accident, a remnant of whatever previous installation of other distros??

Pls show
Code: [Select]
ls /boot/ | grep towo
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Having a few distros installed I was told that it would be preferable to have a separate /boot partition and to leave the boot manager on the / of the distros that I install.I have opted to have siduction to control the boot partition. Is it wrong?

I'm still not familiar with Grub2, so *I* do not know exactly how to solve this.
Still interesting:
Code: [Select]
ls /boot/ | grep towo

I still wonder where each of this two siduction kernels got installed. (bedtime now for me ;-) )

my wild guess is siduction has no clue about your boot partition (btw, how did you annonce it).

pls show:

Code: [Select]
# ls /boot/ | grep vmlinuz
Code: [Select]
# cat /etc/fstab
Code: [Select]
# blkid

... and begin to read in and to understand the siduction manual how to repair grub2

as far as I am concerned the problem with 3.6.2 is not grub. When I reboot I see an entry for 3.6.2, another entry for 3.4.4 and one for 3.3.4-5 and entries for the different distros but if I choose 3.6.2 then I get a login screen with my name and a place to enter my password but neither the mouse or the keyboard work.

Fine. I was able to login 3.6.5. I might do a kernel-remove and save 3.4.4 as a back-up kernel but remove 3.6.2. What do you think?

So this whole problem was a hickup? Fine that the problem is solved without to have to fumble around with grub ;-)

And yes, if 3.6.5 and 3.4.4 are working but not 3.6.2, it's a good idea to remove (kernel-remover) the latter.

That's what I'll do then. Thanks michaa7.
