Booting Fedora 17 stops with the SuSE 12.2 GRUB2


Well, I use a triple boot with SuSE the main system and Fedora 17 and Ubuntu 12.04 riding along. Recently I upgraded to SuSE 12.2. While I still used the old GRUB legacy, all went well. Then I upgraded to SuSE's GRUB2 and when I now start Fedora the last line of the messages reads
Code:
 [OK] Started WPA supplicant daemon.
Then the screen flickers thrice and nothing happens after that.

I can switch to a console and run comands from there (as root, hehe). "startx" results in "Fatal error: no screen found".

Code:
systemctl --all | grep error
results in this list of dead services: exim, iscsi, iscsid, ntod, ntpdate, postfix, remount-rootfs, ypbind.

Anything more I could do to coax out information? I'm absolutely stumped here...

Thanks in advance .

Code:
uname -r
Not knowing what your grub.cfg file looks like, I'm wondering if the grub is loading the proper kernel and initrd for Fedora. Is Ubuntu working properly?

I am aware that there are two newer kernels for fedora on my hard disk. For all three kernel, system.map, config and the initramfs are present, so the oldest should run too I'd guess.

I also ran SuSE's "grub2-mkconfig -o /bboot/grub2/grub.cfg" -- with no change of this behaviour, i.e. the oldest gets the first shot.

This is the grub.cfg of the (master) SuSE installation which does control boot:
Code:
#
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by grub2-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub

So much for my idea. Below is the Fedora 16 entry in Ubuntu 12.10's grub.cfg on my desktop system. I tested it, and it does work. I haven't upgraded Ubuntu's grub.cfg since installing the latest F17 kernel, so I couldn't test booting F17. Although my F16 entry has a few extra parameters, I don't see anything in your F17 entry that should screw up X
Code:
menuentry 'Fedora release 16 (Verne)' --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'osprober-gnulinux-simple-eb5dc105-fafa-4a72-9067-f7d58e08cb0c' {
	insmod part_msdos
	insmod ext2
	set root='hd0,msdos8'
	if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
	  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,msdos8 --hint-efi=hd0,msdos8 --hint-baremetal=ahci0,msdos8  eb5dc105-fafa-4a72-9067-f7d58e08cb0c
	else
	  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root eb5dc105-fafa-4a72-9067-f7d58e08cb0c
	fi
	linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.3.2-6.fc16.x86_64 root=LABEL=F16 ro rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 KEYTABLE=us SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 rd.luks=0 LANG=en_US.UTF-8
	initrd /boot/initramfs-3.3.2-6.fc16.x86_64.img
One thing I've done on my system is to (manually) maintain a separate boot partition that uses grub1 to chainload each distro's grub2. When I install a new distro, grub2 get installed into that distro's / partition. The big advantage is not having to worry about keeping various distros's grub.cfg files in sync.

My menu.lst file in the boot partition:
Code:
# GRUB configuration file '/boot/grub/menu.lst'.
# generated by 'grubconfig'.  Sun Oct 16 16:57:47 2011
#
# The backup copy of the MBR for drive '/dev/sda' is
# here '/boot/grub/mbr.sda.16988'.  You can restore it like this.
# dd if=/boot/grub/mbr.sda.16988 of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1
#
#boot=/dev/sda5
default=0

Yes, that is what I did initially, too, and I always had a separate /boot partition. But SuSE switched to GRUB2 with the 12.2 version. So I even used the GRUB legacy loader to make sure everything runs smooth and then only after some tests updated to GRUB2 2.0. And it does load SuSE 12.2 and Ubuntu 12.04 but fails at Fedora 17. Now what?

1. Rebuild the Fedora initramfs file?
2. Backup whatever data/customized setting you have in F17 and reinstall?

Not sure why the initramfs file would get corrupted, but I would try #1 first. I do #2 a lot when running Rawhide, so it isn't too big a deal for me.

Oho. See the xorg.0.log (exerpt):
Code:
...
(II) VESA: driver for VESA chipsets: vesa
[    25.444] (++) using VT number 1

[    25.448] vesa: Ignoring device with a bound kernel driver

 for help. 
[    25.449] Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
{Very funny. What do they think where I am looking?}
[    25.449] 
[    25.464] Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.
That of any help?

I also edited SuSE's grub.cfg (yes, I know I shouldn't do that, it will be overwritten ) to load the newest kernel I've got (which the boots faithfully with no X as before) -- all to no avail.

If you boot with nomodeset on the kernel line (and no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file) will X come up in vesa mode?

Yes, it does come up, but with the wrong screen resolution. With nomodeset I get a resolution of 1024 x 768 (stretched horizontally) instead of the optimal 1366 x 768. See http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-a-4175425944/ and http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-a-4175427224/

Looks like a proper modeline in /etc/X11/xorg.conf (without the nomodeset parameter in grub.cfg) may do the trick.
Code:
~$ gtf 1366 768 60

  # 1368x768 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 47.70 kHz; pclk: 85.86 MHz
  Modeline "1368x768_60.00"  85.86  1368 1440 1584 1800  768 769 772 795  -HSync +Vsync
As for the xorg.conf file, I just
1. boot into text mode (or kill X)
2. as root run
Code:
Xorg -configure
3. edit the resulting /root/xorg.conf.new to add my modeline(s) and the appropriate modes
4. copy xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
5. start X (or reboot)

Okay, I get the same gtf output as you do (of course).

When I run "Xorg -configure" I get the following error:

   Configuration failed.

Should I delete the additional (superfluous) sections? Where does your modeline go?

<edit>
Okay, I deleted the superfluous sections and added a sectiond "Modes" with the modeline as calculated by "gtf" and stored it as /etc/X11/xorg.conf. No change, X does not start as before .

Btw. there was a small xorg.conf already present (which I renamed):
Code:
Section "Device"
   Identifier "Videocard0"
   Driver "vesa"
Endsection
</edit>

I've included pieces of my xorg.conf file below. Modeline info from the gtf program goes in the Monitor section. The modes themselves go in the stripped-down Screen section.

Code:
Section "Monitor"
	#UseModes     "Modes0" #monitor0usemodes
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Monitor Model"
	DisplaySize  432	270
	HorizSync    30.0 - 86.0
	VertRefresh  56.0 - 76.0
	ModeLine     "1440x900" 106.5 1440 1520 1672 1904 900 901 904 932 -hsync +vsync
	ModeLine     "1680x1050" 147.1 1680 1784 1968 2256 1050 1051 1054 1087 -hsync +vsync
	Modeline     "1920x1080"  172.80  1920 2040 2248 2576  1080 1081 1084 1118  -HSync +Vsync
	Option	    "PreferredMode" "1680x1050"
EndSection
Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Card0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   0 0
		Depth     24
        Option "IgnoreEDID" "TRUE"
		Modes    "1920x1080" "1680x1050" "1440x900" "1280x1024"
	EndSubSection
EndSection
