Beginning with kernel 5.1.1, my LXQt siduction system, on a Dell n5110 laptop, has been experiencing serious boot problems. There are two long halts (several minutes) during the boot process, then the tty1 login prompt on black screen appears, and after root login, another long halt before the command prompt appears.  Kernel 5.0.14 and all previous kernels boot with no issue. I waited until kernel 5.1.2 was released to make this report, in case there was some anomaly with 5.1.1, however 5.1.2 has the same problem on the Dell. My KDE desktop systems, a custom tower with Asus motherboard with Nvidia graphics, and an HP laptop with Intel graphics, have no problem with 5.1.1 or 5.1.2.

Try boot with audit=0 as kernel parameter.

No, audit=0 does not help. The "FAILURE" messages look the same. Here is the full boot line in /etc/default/grub:

Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet resume=UUID=610eb1c9-be26-4bf8-a11e-6886dd2c6200 systemd.show_status=1 audit=0"
(and I did run update-grub)

I noticed one more thing. After I login as root, I see this message while it is halted waiting for the prompt:

Code: [Select]
Unable to get valid context for root
Below this message is the standard Debian message about no warranty, etc.

Edit: ggogle search indicates this "unable to get context" message is from selinux.  But I have never used selinux and don't know anything about it.

Sounds like a problem with SELinux - however, debians SELinux should be permissive and don't should introduce any problems. So i would like to suggest to remove the "quiet" from the kernel line and have a look, where it hangs - maybe a systemd-root console might be helpful to track this down.

Same problem with the third 5.1 kernel released today.

Good suggestion -- I will remove "quiet" and "audit=0" and post again with anything useful.

Booting both 5.1.2 and 5.1.3 I have tried "systemctl status" on some of the failed services.  Here they are:

Code: [Select]

Interesting that

Code: [Select]
systemctl status udisks2.service
Code: [Select]
systemctl start udisdks2.service
fail silently.

@dibl - i could build you a new iso - if it starts it isn't a kernel problem :P

Hi Alf -- I am booting and running 5.0.14 with no problems.  But, if you want to test an ISO, I am happy to give it a try.  ;-)
