Issue#125657: Linux - OpenSuSE on Pi ignoring /boot/config.txt

  • Hi,

    I've successfully installed the latest version of OpenSuSE on my Raspberry Pi. Now I do have X working, but unfortunately it's stuck in some very low resolution like 640x480. No matter what I set in config.txt, it appears that this is completely ignored by the OS.

    As OpenSuSE comes with 2 config.txt files by default (/boot/efi/Config.txt and /boot/vc/Config.txt) I tried the settings below in both files (and I tried /boot/config.txt as well). All with no luck. So, what am I doing wrong here? I also tried using all lowercase characters for the config.txt filename, as well as various settings for hdmi_mode.

  • Issue#635568: Linux - [SOLVED] OpenSUSE 13.1 update kernel to version 3.12.57-44 and HP Smartarray raid = boot fai

    I have a couple of computers running linux that has HP Smartarray RAID controllers. I performed update on one of them running OpenSUSE 13.1 and having the system on hardware raid in a HP Smartarray P400 controller. After updating everything to the latest i tried to reboot. . . Boot Fail! Everything is fine up until the when the root filesystem should be mounted. The system root partition did not appear, and eventually i ended up in the emergency shell. Where i could see that none of the disk was detected. Also, both the drivers cciss ans hpsa was loaded. One of them should have presented the disks to the system, but no. The system has one HP Smartarray P400 RAID controller with 512 MB battery backed cache, and four 2TB WB RE4 disks split up in two RAID5 logical disks - One small for the system "/dev/cciss/c0d0", and one large work disk "/dev/cciss/c0d1". Before updating, the system was running linux kernel version 3.11.10-34 and everything was working 100%. HP h

    Hello! I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 5000 series. I installed dual boot with Deepin 15.2 & it was working beautifully until today. I went in to Windows 10 (which I seldom do) to do some work & when I rebooted to go into Linux (my main OS) it refused & simply went back to Win10. I finally decided to reinstall Deepin only now it refuses to finish the install. I've tried both normal & expert mode to no avail. I've also tried with secure boot on & off to no avail. Any ideas as to why before it installed without a hitch & now it simply refuses to. (same iso image) thank you. Nat

  • Issue#829948: Linux - Boot issue: -14.1/x86_64 on Sony Vaio laptop

    This host has been running 14.1/x86_64 without problems. It's a full installation (well, except for KDE) and no SBo packages installed, but AlienBOB's multilib packages are installed. About 2 weeks ago I ran slackpkg and upgraded all packages. Now it has issues booting and loading the GUI login screen. Somehow there seem to be both 32- and 64-bit modules that the system _very_ slowly loads: gtk, and pango are two I recall seeing. The boot process is many times slower than it was in the past, and after announcing it's loading kdm(?) the monitor blanks, displays a brief cursor in the upper, left corner then blanks again. I cannot move to a different console (ctrl-alt-Fn), and ctrl-alt-del does not halt the sytem. Not having experienced this issue before I'm at a loss of how to identify the cause and fix it. Advice and suggestions sooner rather than later will be much appreciated by the laptop's user. TIA, Rich

    Hello All, I am trying to dual-boot Slackware (32-bit, current) with Manjaro (Fluxbox, openrc). I have installed Slack, then Manjaro (format /dev/sda2 for /, use /dev/sda3 for /home, use /dev/sda4 for swap and with no boot loader). I then boot back into Slackware and 1. Make directory /mnt/manjaro 2. Add this to /etc/fstab (below) 3. Edit /etc/lilo.conf (below) 4. Run lilo -v Slackware still boots fine, I am using it to write this. But when I boot Manjaro, I get to the graphical login manager which looks normal, but on entering my password it just returns me to the login screen. I am able to login on another tty. Also, and I do not know whether this is related, early in the boot process I get a warning "The root device is not configured to be mounted read-write! It may be fsck'd later on."

    Hi , I just upgraded a new slackware install on my new ssd to current. I copied the 4.4 kernel file to /boot/efi/EFI/Slackware/vmlinuz. Now it is unbootable. elilo just restarts, no kernel message is present. If I recopy the 3.10 old kernel to /boot/efi/EFI/Slackware/vmlinuz, it works. I did test up to 3.14, it was bootable.

  • Issue#8663: petalinux-config (2015) -c u-boot bad defaults

    Made the mistake of running petalinux-config -c u-boot. This sets up defaults, but puts the config & build system into an infinite loop, and build/config.log will fill the entire file system. The complaint is that the u-boot config can't find DEBUG_UART_PHYS. The default config turns on low level debugging in U-BOOT (not to be confused with low level debuggging in the kernel). The solution is either turn off low level debugging in u-boot, or provide a physical address for debug uart in the petalinux-config page (aka Kconfig).   For newbies, the hardware description will show the physical address for the uarts.

  • Issue#11169: Linux - Centos 6 boot problem after power outage

    Hi, Last week we lost power several times during a storm. When I rebooted my Centos 6 server all was fine but I did see that /var/log/messages had a number of messages relating to SATA. After a trawl around a few forums I found no obvious answer but someone suggested reseating all the SATA cables. I did this and that message went away but I got another, longer, error which only appeared once two days ago. No more messages but this morning I noticed that my backups had not worked and the reason was that one of my disks was unresponsive. I tried rebooting and got absolutely nothing - the system hangs. I booted from a live CD I have kicking around (Mint) and was able to mount all the individual disk partitions (including the troublesome disk). Still, I edited fstab to remove this disk which and rebooted back into Centos. Nothing! I tried CTRl-ALT-F2 but that shows nothing either. After a bit of thought I realise I didn't see a grub prompt so I am beginning to wonder whether the boot pa

  • Issue#14046: Linux - openSuse Leap installer gets stuck or doesn't load

    I have been preparing to perform a major upgrade and HDD replacement at the same time. While waiting for the hardware to arrive, I have been downloading and burning all the iso's that I expect to need. I have downloaded the openSuse Leap X86-64 iso twice and the boot from dvd fails at the same place each time. -checksums ok, -media boots and verify media ok when done in a different machine -openSuse 13.2 i586 DVD gets to the partitioning part of the install at which point I bail out. When booting from the Leap x64 DVD there is a green progress bar that runs along the bottom of the screen. It gets stuck when that reaches 100%. I left it for 20 minutes last night just in case it was a bit slow. Does any one know which point in the start up this or is there any way to get some verbose messages up on the screen so that I can see what is happening? At this point I am suspecting that something in my machine does not like 64 bit even though the CPU (Pentium D 820) and chipset (intel

Two days of copying files into the LVM saw me up and running. Then later the same day the boot HDD failed big time.

Q: Is there a way to rebuild/ reconfigure the LVM without having to start over? Thanks

When I put some thermal grease on the gpu and screw the H80 fully down, the gpu wont boot but if I then remove the block and and reapply thermal grease (with cleaning the residual) and do not fully screw down the block, it boots right up. The issue is that if I don't fully screw it down I get idle temps of 34 but rise under load to 90 degrees within seconds.
