systemd[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.


Hi,

After doing a kernel update I noticed that when booting the following message appears:
Code:
systemd[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
I checked what module failed to load with:
Code:
# systemctl status systemd-modules-load
I don't know the exact output anymore, but it gave me a clue about ZFS module not loading, and indeed, my ZFS partition was not mounted anymore.
So I ran the following commands to fix it:
Code:
# dkms remove zfs/0.6.4.2 --all
# dkms remove spl/0.6.4.2 --all
# dkms --force install spl/0.6.4.2
# dkms --force install zfs/0.6.4.2
After a reboot, it still shows the Failed to start Load Kernel Modules message, but ZFS is working again.

Now when I run
Code:
# systemctl status systemd-modules-load
everything seems to be ok:
Code:
● systemd-modules-load.service - Load Kernel Modules
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-modules-load.service; static; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (exited) since Mon 2015-07-06 21:19:05 CEST; 23min ago
     Docs: man:systemd-modules-load.service(8)
           man:modules-load.d(5)
  Process: 429 ExecStart=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-modules-load (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
 Main PID: 429 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
   CGroup: /system.slice/systemd-modules-load.service

Jul 06 21:19:05 localhost.localdomain systemd[1]: Started Load Kernel Modules.
But why do I still get the Failed to start Load Kernel Modules error on boot?
Btw, I'm running Fedora 22 with kernel 4.0.6-300.fc22.x86_64.

Thanks in advance.

It's exactly the type of clue from running 'systemctl status systemd-modules-load', 'journalctl -xn', 'dmesg' and 'dkms' right after the initial error, checking /etc/modules-load.d/, /run/modules-load.d/ and /usr/lib/modules-load.d/ and looking at log files like /var/log/messages that could help us help you. Without that some of us may have some hunch but nothing tangible to go on...
