Timeout of mount /home directory during boot (systemd and sysvinit)


This is openSuSE 12.1_64, hardware specs see my signature.

After waiting for the timeout to occurr I get thrown into an emergency shell. There I can mount /dev/sda11 /home instantaneously. "fsck -f /dev/sda11" runs through with no errors. Occurrs both with systemd and also when kernel parameter "init=/sbin/sysvinit" is given.

Any ideas how to rectify this?

Are you sure the timeout you're seeing isn't AFTER the /home mount? Often the last thing you see on the screen in a boot is actually before whatever is erroring out. Is /home the last filesystem in fstab? If not have you checked the one after it? If it is you might want to look at your boot order to see what runs after mounts to see if perhaps this is the issue.

Yes I'm sure, because there are some more lines ending with the request to enter the root-password. Furthermore, I can fsck without umounting sda11 and in rescue mode it tells me to repair (the perfectly healthy) file system.

I _think_ it is the last, I'll check, also at the boot order, will report back.

*hrmph* Really, this is embarrassing here as well .

I'll repost from this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ritten-919319/

<QUOTE>

You know, when I prepared the switch of the 12.1/home (sda11) to the 11.4/home (sda6) working horse, I used the vi-editor in a hurry to edit /etc/fstab. I (or rather openSuSE) use the UUID-scheme to identify partitions. So I changed /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31000520AS_5VX0VRDP-part11 /home to /dev/disk/by-id/ata-ST31000520AS_5VX0VRDP-par6 /home.

Little wonder mount didn't find that partition.

Thanks for reading and trying to help, MensaWater .
