Fedora Emergency Mode - Help Parsing the Journal File Please


For some reason, my new Fedora install has started booting into emergency mode. I have a log and am hoping it will tell me why.

I obtained the file by running "journalctl > journal.txt" on the command line. It's a 56MB text file. Yep, that's 58720256 bytes. If you consider that one character equals one byte, more or less, you understand why I'm asking for assistance.

I've uploaded it here: journal.txt

I can't get it to upload on LQ as an attachment. I haven't read the fine print, but I think it's too large.

I'm not asking anyone to go through with a fine-tooth comb. Just peruse, and if anything stands out tell me. Or, give me an idea what to search for.

Note: If you are on Windows, do not open in Notepad. It will freeze your Notepad if you start playing reindeer games with the content. Also, it looks like crap. Notepad++ swallowed the whole chunk of data with no complaining.

If you're on Linux, I'll assume you know what you're doing.

Thanks for any help,
Doug

Did you bother to do that yourself ?.
Pretty obvious what's filling the log - and no need to post it all.

Do you have /mnt/usb in fstab ?. Try commenting it out and rebooting. Systemd can get pretty anal about errors at startup.

syg00,
Yes, I did look. I missed that particular bit of info, or my Windows-user brain saw line after line of text and threw a BSOD.

That being said, I'll be looking at my /etc/fstab when I gett home this afternoon.

Thank you,
Doug
