[Bug 1592933] Re: there are several errors on booting my laptop (xubuntu 16.04 64 bits)
I now realize I didn't get rid of linux-image-4.7.0-040700rc2-generic as
in the linked bug I said I would stick to this upstream kernel for
further testing and to answer your questions. Should I revert to the
latest stable kernel? Could this explain why I get 2 GiB RAM instead of
my regular 4?
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel
Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu.
there are several errors on booting my laptop (xubuntu 16.04 64 bits)
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Best I could think of is recording a video, so you see what I endure
every time I power on the laptop:
it's comments are self explanatory:
Booting on M7X-SUN
00:39: those are several inode errors, those appear because I had to
reboot the laptop several times (because the first or second time on
powering the laptop I just got a blank screen).
00:48: that huge list of things being loaded is nowehere in
/var/log/syslog, dmesg or kern.log to be seen. Where do I find that
information that tells me what is going in in plain text format? Green
is OK, red is FAILED
01:21: from this moment on, blank screen with just a cursor. It stays
like that usually for 30 to 40 seconds with no mention of tty1 (see
01:38: thats tty1 asking me an username and if I enter it, a password,
I usually don't write anything and let the laptop go on to login
02:01: blank screen (this is new, usually the login screen should
03:00: not recorded, but log in screen appeared.
I dont know if this is related to my other bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1589109 , because
on shutting down I also don't see what is going on...
somebody suggested to execute 'systemd-analyze plot > boot.svg' which
does not show that huge list I mention on 00:48, but I append it here,
as it may be useful for you...
How Do I solve all those problems and get my fully 4 GiB of ram to work instead of the 2 just right now? Between 2 and 3 minutes just to boot a laptop is too much time.
