Most recent update caused system to not be able to boot

Post by cmul » Thu Aug 03, 2017 2:22 pm

Hi Everyone,

Possibly a noob question here, but is there something special that I need to do to get the most recent release of Kibojoe Linux to update to the latest packages? I tried to do a standard update through pacli on two separate machines (hardware install, not in a virtualbox), and while the updates "succeeded," the next restart would not bring up the desktop. I believe the message I received was something about Kernel panic.

Thanks for any pointers! In the mean time, I have simply reinstalled the most recent Kibojoe iso and have been having no problems at all - not updating things of course.

Thanks again for your great work, and I look forward to the continued development of Kibojoe Linux!

Sincerely,

Chad

Confirmed. After recent manjaro updates, i was able to boot, but after few minutes i received a "Segmentation Error" and, after a forced restart, a cataclysmic Kernel Panic :D . Erased and reinstalled everything, the same error occours after updating

Well, since Holmes will soon release a new iso, i do not kwnow if the results of my research might be useful at all. However, i noticed that, updating all packages but glibc, the kernel did not panic and was about to write a bug report to the package manteiner. Then i found this archlinux thread where an user was having the same problem and discovered that it was not due to glibc but to a perverse relationship between systemd and prelink. During an update, prelink mash up something in the teng-shui-INIT of systemd, and we know how much it is touchy.
Effectively, in kibojoe we are using prelink and, after having reproduced the kernel panic situation, i resolved it by unprelinking everything from LIVE system and rebuilding the init :P
