[EN] [Solved] d-u yields non-booting system
« on: 2017/12/26, 16:31:39 »
Hi,


I just did a dist-upgrade and the new kernel does not boot. There were errors about nvidia and virtualbox modules not building during d-u too.


I get to see some error messages:
Code: [Select]
[BUG] using smp_processor_id() im preemptible [00000000] code sshd/1113
       "                                                                       "        code sshd/1191
and ... code isc-worker 0000/4537
      ... code dnsmasq/1167


The boot process stops then. Kernel 4.14.8-towo.1-siduction-amd64 does boot though.


Have fun,
Stephan


Edit: I can't suspend for days now. Well - I can but only the PC wakes up again, the display stays dark. The power LED of it keeps blinking which means there is no carrier = "dead" input.

Hi,


thanks for answering. I've tried the driver from Experimental. This one builds fine but the newer Kernels still don't work. Where dont't work means gdm does not show up. 4.14.8 is fine.


Code: [Select]

oppa@oppa-hex-ssd:~$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GM204 [GeForce GTX 970]
           Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.19.5 ) driver: nvidia Resolution: 1920x1080@59.93hz
           OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GTX 970/PCIe/SSE2 version: 4.5.0 NVIDIA 387.34


Thanks again,
Stephan

Try (versuchen)

Code: [Select]
apt purge $(dpkg -l | awk '/nvidia/{ print $2 }');

apt purge libelf-dev linux-image-4.14.9-towo.2-siduction-amd64 linux-headers-4.14.9-towo.2-siduction-amd64

apt install libelf-dev linux-image-4.14.9-towo.2-siduction-amd64 linux-headers-4.14.9-towo.2-siduction-amd64

apt update; apt install -t experimental nvidia-driver

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck
