Bug description:
  After installing the updated kernel (3.8.0-29), I was suddenly unable
  to boot. I will experience a frozen screen for several seconds,
  followed by an error claiming that my installation partition cannot be
  found. However, the 3.8.0-27 kernel seems to work just fine.

  I attempted an fsck, but no errors were found. I then removed the -29
  kernel completely (sudo apt-get purge, followed by sudo update-grub),
  reinstalled it, but ended up with the same result.

  Now for some system details: I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 x86_64, with all
  the latest stable updates installed. My machine's hard drive is
  controlled by an Intel ICH9R/DO/DH SATA AHCI Controller chipset,
  currently set to AHCI mode (as opposed to IDE or RAID mode). Ubuntu is
  stored on an exteded partition, which is formatted with EXT4
  (/dev/sda6). My first three partitions are Windows installs, each with
  formatted with NTFS. Also, I have /dev/sda7 as my Swap partition.

  If there are anymore details I can provide, please don't hesitate to
  ask.

Stefan, could you please test the kernel in -proposed as per comment #4?
Thanks.

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1215269] Re: Unable to boot after kenel update (3.8.0-29).

2013-08-26 Thread Stefan Hengelein
Well, i think at least when it comes to my problems, handling this bug
is finished. looks like hardware defect, what wasn't obvious .

i added the -proposed sources as described and when i wanted to install 
something with apt-get, i got an error while the installation was running. 
readonly filesystem. lookslike the SSD had an error again and remounted in 
readonly, i tried making it writeable again
mount -n -o remount,rw /
error, bad filesystem, orphaned inodes, wat?
restart, readonly immediately, remount with rw, fails, same error message
try e2fsck /dev/sdb2
finds something, fix, fix, fix...restart
suddenly boot process hangs in ACPI / SMART check, SSD is not recognized 
anymore. disconnect SSD, works (at least until no operating system on drives 
found)

might have been a coincidence, maybe the kernel update caused it, but i
doubt it. sorry guys for wasting your time (and at least 5 days
searching myself).

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1215269] Re: Unable to boot after kenel update (3.8.0-29).

2013-08-24 Thread Stefan Hengelein
So, after a few days of further testing i'm convinced that the 3.8.0-29
version of the kernel still has some problems.

yesterday, i got the black screen with a blinking underscore again, but after 
rebooting i got a screen with 
/ has to be checked for errors, done, automatic reboot, login worked.


then again, a few minutes ago something went wrong again (as you can see in the 
attached dmesg2.out) and the filesystem was readonly again (well, in fstab is 
configured to mount as ro when an error occurs, thats no surprise than).

i will now try using the 3.8.0-30.43 kernel as proposed by Joseph.

2013-08-22 Thread Joseph Salisbury
Also, the 3.8.0-30.43 kernel is now available in the -proposed
repository.  Would it be possible for you to test this latest kernel and
post back if it resolves this bug?

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how
to enable and use -proposed.

Thank you in advance!

2013-08-22 Thread Stefan Hengelein
after reboot the filesystem was writeable again, not sure what caused
the error listed in dmesg, thus it doesn't make much sense trying the
other kernel, i think (if you meant me).

2013-08-22 Thread Joseph Salisbury
I'd like to perform a bisect to figure out what commit caused this
regression. We need to identify the earliest kernel where the issue
started happening as well as the latest kernel that did not have this
issue.

Can you test the following kernels and post back? We are looking for the
first kernel version that exhibits this bug:

v3.8.13.4: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.8.13.4-raring/
v3.8.13.5: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.8.13.5-raring/


Thanks in advance!

[Kernel-packages] [Bug 1215269] Re: Unable to boot after kenel update (3.8.0-29).

2013-08-22 Thread Stefan Hengelein
So...i've had a similiar problem after updating from 3.8.0-27 to
3.8.0-29.

while booting i got a general error mounting filesystems with a prompt to 
enter the root-pw for maintanance, which was frozen so i couldn't enter the 
root pw. or do anything.
in contrary to your problem, the 3.8.0-27 version of the kernel didn't boot 
after installing the 29 version.

i read that it could be possible that the update wasn't finished, so i tried 
booting a live-usb stick (/dev/sdb2/ is my partition with linux)
sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /mnt
sudo chroot /mnt
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

didn't work.

so i tried recovery mode, 
got into root console,
compared /etc/fstab with blkid output, everything was ok, uuid were the right 
ones.

calling dmesg, one of the lastest messages said: mountall segfaulted with 4 
(after that 2 adresses, ip / sp, both != null)
calling mountall manually segfaulted also,
called mountall with gdb and run,  errors in dl-reloc.c 239 and rtld.c (but i 
don't have the stacktrace now since the problem is gone, so i can't reproduce, 
but more to that later)

got into root console again, 
filesystem was readonly - mount -n -o remount,rw /
(calling mountall still segfaults)
CTRL+D to get into recovery-menu
start networking
got into root console again
sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get upgrade  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get  --purge autoremove
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo dpkg --clear-avail
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get --fix-missing install

got no output so i thought nothing happend,

searched /var/log for hints what could be wrong. found something like IOMMU 
disabled, please enable it
reboot, enable IOMMU,
suddenly the system boots, (logging in and starting firefox, and so on)
reboot, disable IOMMU, system boots...

currently i'm not sure what it fixed, why the system boots now or if the
problem is really fixed.

dmesg (see attachment), looks like filesystem is readonly again..
could the problem be a problem with EXT4 ? 

not sure if i should file a seperate bug.
