[Bug 1506845] Re: Suspected Race Condition on boot


No, because Citrix Netscaler Gateway is not installed on my box now

Under Vivid, where I did have a race condition, and had it installed
successfully, it happened even before I installed it. Even on Fedora,
which Netscaler doesn't work, it had a race condition.

So, my correlation is that CNG doesn't have an impact on the race
condition, BUT Wily is causing it to be uninstallable due to renaming of
some of the packages it depends on (e.g. libproxy1 -> libproxy1v5).

Since this ticket is regarding the race condition and we have rectified
that by using the daily live cd to install Wily, I would consider it

  Suspected Race Condition on boot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu Vivid using stock install, no additional configs, on a dual
  boot (Ubuntu + Win7)

  When booting, my laptop will sometimes boot successfully, sometimes
  not, and sometimes, will reboot. Using CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to terminal
  shows me a console flood for Nouveau (sometimes) and sometimes not.
  Sometimes I see messages about firmware not being used/installed.

  I cannot reliably replicate this problem, but I have had similar
  problems running Fedora on this machine with similar console floods,
  which points further up to the upstream kernel.

  I suspect it is a race condition, as if I can see the console flood,
  the laptop often boots successfully, but if I don't I either get a
  kernel panic or a self-reboot.

  Can provide more information/HW details if needed (but not at the machine right now)
