Openindiana boot loop kvm lmde4


Hi,


I installed OpenIndiana 20.05.04 in Quemu/KVM Gui (Virtual Machine Manager libvirt) into a LMDE4 host (Debian).

It has a boot loop if I use default boot "1. Multiuser...". So I tried "2. Single User". It gave me this :

" Enter user name for system maintenance (control-d to bypass):"

So I entered with root an my root password. It gave me a terminal "#".

So I tried "startx" to see if it gives me the mate desktop. It doesn't, it gave a minimal "x" gui with 2 terminal windows.

Here is my question : How is it possible to start mate desktop with the system maintenance terminal?


Thank you

Joel Lapointe

how much memory did you allocate to the vm? Which iso did you use?
at the boot menu press 5 to configure boot options, press 5 again for verbose on, 1 back to main menu. note messages to where it hangs

Kernel dump! ahci nul pointer dereference

I put 3500 Mb, which was ok for live cd install through the gui.
I used the "OI-hipster-gui-20200504.iso"
The printed screen from the failed boot is attached.
The kernel seems to be dumped : module "ahci" null pointer dereference ...

I searched internet and saw this : https://www.illumos.org/issues/7075
I don't know if it is related. It doesn't seems to be resolved.

Victory!

Here is the annoying solution:
- The bug described in the previous post said that it was related to SATA optical drives.
- I removed the optical drive from boot order
- I changed SATA for IDE for both the HDD and optical drive
- Just change to IDE wasn't enough - Just removing the optical drive from boot wasn't enough either!

However, it is annoying because IDE isn't as good as SATA. I don't know if it is lowering the VM performance?
It should be fixed anyway...

Thanks for the feedback!

I doubt using IDE vs SATA would have any noticeable impact on performance. Not sure about virtIO support in your case, but that would be the fastest solution should disk is really a bottleneck.
