ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 2272
Gnome R1 doesn't work on laptop with ssd
Last modified: 2013-07-07 22:53:18 MSD
Description of problem:
After installing Gnome R1 and first rebooting system doesn't start: process of loading is waiting on plymouth. I can't go to virtual console, keyboard doesn't work too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rosa Fresh Gnome R1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Gnome R1 on your laptop with ssd
2. Restart system
1. Does it stop with "dracut: Starting plymouth daemon" as the last line of the system log at the screen?
I observed a probably similar problem in ROSA Fresh R1 (with KDE rather than GNOME though) in our automatic tests from time to time. Without additional info, however, it is hard to say if they are related.
2. Does a second reboot help?
3. Please post the hardware configuration here, at least you can boot the system in Live mode and get the output of 'lspci -vnn'.
DO you have similar problems with latest KDE images ?

Now, i use Rosa R1 KDE and all right. But with Gnome on this laptop i have problem. Second and other reboot doesn't help.
I attach file with "lspci -vnn".
I have still one laptop with ssd, but Gnome R1 works good on this laptop.
Also i installed Fedora 18 with Gnome on problem laptop, and it works good.
Fedora does not really interest me, but thx for the info :)
Do you have Gnome system in dualboot with KDE or any other ?
No, now on this laptop installed KDE R1 and Fedora.
But i can install Gnome beside KDE, if need.
test please this x86_64 image
Ok, i will test it after downloading.

i tested this iso, but i got similar results. I attached photo with logs without splash option. See it.
According to the screenshot you have a problem with X or KDM.
Can you please provide Xorg.0.log, dmesg, kdm.log
Also try booting with
xdriver=vesa nomodeset vga=788

I started system with option "single" and copied two files: xorg.old, dmesg.old. But in log-folder a don't find file kdm.log.
Haha, sorry )
I need logs from /var/log/gdm folder )

In /var/log/gdm/ there are files, but i can't copy them on usb, see photo.
cp * /mnt/

i tried it too, but it didn't help. see photo_2.
tar -zcvf gdm.tar.gz /var/log/gdm/
then copy /var/log/gdm.tar.gz to the flash drive

Ok,now booting with
xdriver=vesa nomodeset vga=788
Yes, it works, but colors and resolution is very bad.
But system is working
i see, thx, much clearer.
The problem exists, but it is not ssd related and not the one we faced on Eugene Shatokhin test machines.
Try please changing splash=silent to splash=text in grub boot menu
All as at "photo", a didn't see any difference.
Can you switch to other virtual consoles when system fails to start ?
No, i can't to switch to virtual console.
Also i tried xdriver=intel, but it doesn't help too.

I tried i915.modeset=0 at grub boot menu and it works, system works, but resolution is bad. Also, at journalctl there are many messages with "failed". I attached file, see it please.
This is no surprising, i915.modeset=0 does not load the required driver :)
and BTW better provide journalctl -a for a full output.
at boot options
I tried, system started, but resolution also is bad and system works very slowly.
Try please booting to runlevel 3, add
to boot string in grub
then login with some user and try startx.
Results: after logining i typed startx and see mouse-pointer, but after it i see black screen only. And i can't to switch to virtual console.
Ok. Last mesa builds
fix this issue.
In new Gnome R1 this problem solved.
