2020-11-26 Thread Dimitri John Ledkov
NAK on the linux patch.

I think this is a grub bug.

When loading multiple initrds, grub aligns_up each one of them at 4bytes
boundary, and allocates pages for that. And it declares and passes
ramdisk_image as the total allocated memory. Rather than the true size
of the initrds.

2020-11-25 Thread Dimitri John Ledkov
So lz4 compressed initrd looks like this with hexdump

568f580 0523 00ac 54bf 4152 4c49 5245 2121 0021
568f590 0001 1cff 0050     
568f59a

I do wonder what ram is initialized too, and how those things look when
kernel reads initrd from memory as loaded by the bootloader / qemu.

2020-11-17 Thread Dimitri John Ledkov
@Siarhei

That looks very valid. And we were close to getting to that, when apw &
I timed out looking at this.

lz4 -l Use Legacy format (typically for Linux Kernel compression)
  Note : -l is not compatible with -m (--multiple) nor -r

Which must always be used when creating initrd. Ideally, both userspace
output and linux kernel consumption should agree what said legacy format
should look like and what it must produce and consume.

Is https://github.com/lz4/lz4/blob/dev/doc/lz4_Frame_format.md#legacy-
frame underspecified, or does lz4 produce non-compliant frames, or
kernel misprocesses compliant frames?

Also, can we upgrade lz4 in the kernel tree to 1.9.2?

Has this to do with BLK_DEV_RAM being compiled as a module? From
init/initramfs.c:

>   if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM))
>printk(KERN_INFO "Trying to unpack rootfs image as

>else
>printk(KERN_INFO "Unpacking initramfs...\n");

>populate_initrd_image(err);
>#else
>printk(KERN_EMERG "Initramfs unpacking failed: %s\n", err);

So the IS_ENABLED line is true while the ifdef CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM line
seems to evaluate to false.

The fix for 1872159 (spinning logo hang on startup) has allowed me to

though, encourage completion of the fix for it since it rears its head

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-10-02 Thread Tim Wetzel
Continues to occur even once the bug 1871268 install crash has been
dealt with (installing from latest daily-live current image). So affects
even a fresh install. Seemed to appear in mid-September updates along
with recurrence of bug 1872159, the dreaded spinning Ubuntu logo hang on
startup. So a fresh install does not resolve it; and the workarounds of
recreating the ram drive image no longer seem to work either.

This issue 1835660, the spinning logo hang 1872159, a problem with the
login password immediately triggering suspend 1897185, and then the
reinstallation crashes 1871268 (which happen when reinstalling to try to
get rid of all this) appeared with the last two Ubuntu updater packages,
since mid-September. The last of these also included an nVidia driver
update, which is believed to affect at least one of these issues.

Applied the 'fix' from Comment #11 by vmc(vmclark) in Linux Mint 20. The
error is no longer logged. Some boots on my HP laptop with a 5400RPM
spinning Hard drive are slow but some are faster but some around the
same time with lz4. Hard disk performance on my laptop is better with
gzip than lz4. With lz4 the PC extremely lags when some apt packages are
being set up and configured and some final configurations after most or
all packages are installed, set up and configured but with gzip, the lag
never occurs and PC is usable. Hard disk read benchmarks are better with
gzip than with lz4. I think that lz4 is more suitable for an SSD than a
spinning hard drive

Ubuntu put it at lz4 by default, so my gut tells me that'll give the
fastest boot time. I didn't change lz4 to anything, just ran this
command to get rid of the error:

sudo update-initramfs -c -k $(uname -r)

I believe you have to run this command everytime certain packages are
updated.

Been seeing this since new install of Linux Mint 20 (2 weeks ago)
(Have not noticed on a LM19.3 upgrade on a different machine)

I have been finding several small bugs and wondered if this may have
something to do with any of them.

I just tried the above fix.

I no longer see the error on boot up, but according to dmesg, my boot
time has increased by approximately 0.85 seconds.

No clue, yet, whether any other processes have been affected.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-08-06 Thread Pjotr12345
This is a simplified version of the means to work around this problem:

Step 1:
sudo sed -i 's/COMPRESS=lz4/COMPRESS=gzip/g' /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf

Step 2:
sudo update-initramfs -u

Step 3:
Reboot.

Now I wonder whether someone has already tried something other than gzip? 
Because initramfs.conf mentions no less than six options:
# COMPRESS: [ gzip | bzip2 | lz4 | lzma | lzop | xz ]

Apparently gzip is slower than lz4, which might slow the boot process by
several seconds. One of the other alternatives might be faster.

Of course I could test that myself, but I'm too lazy today, so I'm
hoping somebody else has done the footwork already

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-08-03 Thread Md Ayquassar
I recall that on one of my machines I had exactly the same situation as
reported in #20 and #21 up to the timings (5.3.0-26-generic in Ubuntu
19.10 with EFI Secure Boot and dual boot with Windows 10,
fastboot/hibernation disabled, LZ4 image by default, booting failed
often, booting succeeded upon reinstall with EFI secure boot).
Unfortunately, I don't have this machine any longer. @mario-gleirscher
would probably be of help if they provide us with some debugging when
asked by the Ubuntu maintainers.

On another machine, I still have this annoying printf in dmesg (and
journalctl -b):

[0.215092] NET: Registered protocol family 1
[0.215096] NET: Registered protocol family 44
[0.215105] pci :00:02.0: Video device with shadowed ROM at [mem

[0.306614] Freeing initrd memory: 48364K

I run 5.4.0-42-generic in Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS focal.

As for me, this issue seems to simply uselessly burn processor cycles
(and, as every such issue, indirectly generate superfluous carbon
dioxide); there is a potential for optimization here.

Is part of the issue here that some (most) initramfs-tools created

That is stored as ASCII CPIO which is why Con see's that reported by

2020-07-16 Thread Edmand Thipursian
Hi, I had this same issue while updating ubuntu 20, however, I have
noticed that kernal hung error while the update stalled.

So I have added the following in  /etc/sysctl.conf and rebooted the
server, this issue has gone(we can apply those parameter without
restarting server usings sysctl -w vm.dirty_background_ratio=5.

vm.dirty_background_ratio=5
vm.dirty_ratio=10

vm.swappiness=30
vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50

I have tried 4 different vms and it works with the workaround. Kernal is used 
as follows; 
5.4.0-26-generic #30-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 20 16:58:30 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 
x86_64 GNU/Linux

I am sure the could help some people out there to resolve this issue
asap.

Thanks
Edmand

2020-07-04 Thread Saroumane
I think "file" is wrong. (I have the same kind of misleading output :
"ASCII cpio archive ..." )

You can try to you use "unmkinitramfs" on your inird.img (unfortunately "cpio" 
does not work to fully "unarchive" this kind of "multi-segments" archive) and 
check the size.
I have "lz4" initrd.img files around 80MB. If I uncompress/unarchive them with 
"unmkinitramfs", I get around 260MB of files and folders.
If I remake initrd with COMPRESS=gzip in /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf  I 
get initrd files a bit smaller (around 74 MB)

So I think update-initramfs (and the invoked script mkinitramfs) are doing 
their job.
The "initramfs unpacking failed: Decoding failed" error might just be a 
cosmetic error from grub or kernel.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-07-03 Thread Con Kolivas
The issue appears to be that update-initramfs creates uncompressed
images.

I have the same error but have been dealing with a different issue of it
failing to boot with a custom kernel by UUID which is why I haven't
posted a bug report. However, since this issue appears to be related,
upon further inspection I find that none of the initramfs images being
created are actually compressed at all.

file /boot/initrd.img*
/boot/initrd.img:  symbolic link to initrd.img-5.4.0-40-generic
/boot/initrd.img-5.4.0-33-generic: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
/boot/initrd.img-5.4.0-37-generic: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
/boot/initrd.img-5.4.0-39-generic: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
/boot/initrd.img-5.4.0-40-generic: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)

These should all be lz4 images. I tried changing the initramfs config to
gzip but it still did not show a compressed file.

All LXD virtual machines are hitting this too.

Run:
 - lxc launch images:ubuntu/focal/cloud f1 && lxc console f1

And you'll see it show that message. As mentioned above, boot then still
goes ahead and you get a login prompt, but as that may not always be the
case.

For example in linux-kvm, that fallback mechanism doesn't appear to work and we 
instead get a kernel panic unless we've manually modified the initrd to be gzip:

Given that the change to the compression format is one of the headline
features of Ubuntu 20, and that Ubuntu 20 is a LTS release (and thus,
for one thing, a release upon which other Linux distributions are based)
I am surprised that this problem made it into the final release.

2020-06-16 Thread Arnold
Same thing here. In my case, the computer keeps booting into emergency mode, 
with output like in #5, and some additional ACPI errors.
I changed COMPRESS to gzip as described in #47, but not back to lz4.
Now the computer keeps booting into emergency mode with the message "/dev/sda2 
clean" (which is my root partition). No more ACPI errors are reported.
However, in emergency mode, I need to do "mount -a" each time and then "exit", 
otherwise it will return to emergency mode after FS check. The booting is quite 
slow, though.

2020-06-10 Thread Rhonal Velasco
I was dealing with some of these issues after install new kernel version this 
morning. However I was able to boot with older kernel versions. After a lot of 
test, now I am able to boot in the new kernel without any problem.
Here there are some checks and tasks that I could accomplish:

-) Check in /etc/fstab and make sure that there are not duplicated mount
points for EFI.

-) Try apt install --reinstall linux-image-5.4.0-37-generic

-) Try sudo update-grub

Also, I removed drivers for nvidia and VirtualBox because some errors
that I saw in journalctl.

Hope this helps somebody.

Correction for my last post: More investigation revealed that the issue
IS harmless after all - the error message just happened to be the only
message printed on an otherwise black and unresponsive screen for
multiple seconds before a timeout occurs that after further research
turned out to be caused by something else, not the decoding failure.
Regardless of that the rest of my previous post still applies. (The
"harmless message" exists and does not go away by following the steps
outlined by others, at least for me)

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-05-25 Thread Simon Repp
I did a clean install of 20.04 on my machine (which has been running
Ubuntu, most recently 19.04, without issue so far) and I am facing this
- importantly in my case it is NOT a harmless message but actually
preventing boot - I am stuck in the initramfs prompt.

I tried the suggested workaround of editing "/etc/initramfs-
tools/initramfs.conf" to specify COMPRESS=gzip instead of COMPRESS=lz4
to no avail (issue remains on next boot attempt).

I can not run try elsewhere also suggested "sudo update-initramfs -u"
command because as I understand it I am lacking the proper context in
which this would be run - in the initramfs prompt I can not run it (or
at least don't know how), and if I boot into live ubuntu (which works
perfectly - this is also where I was able to edit the initramfs.conf
file) I could probably run this although it would be in the wrong
context (that of the live ubuntu, not the one on disk I installed
previously).

Thanks everyone for the effort to resolve this! I'll run 19.10 or
another distro in the meantime and hope this can be resolved soon.

Confirmed also on a clean 20.04, kernel 5.4.0-31-generic

The time difference between gzip and lz4 is not noticeable by the user:
LZ4:
Startup finished in 14.815s (firmware) + 3.483s (loader) + 1.879s (kernel) + 
23.176s (userspace) = 43.354s 
graphical.target reached after 23.164s in userspace

GZIP:
Startup finished in 14.760s (firmware) + 3.441s (loader) + 2.276s (kernel) + 
22.805s (userspace) = 43.283s 
graphical.target reached after 22.775s in userspace

Actually, same as one poster above, it's a fraction of second faster
with gzip... but that could be in the limits of the precision of this
kind of measure.

So I'll stick to GZIP until the bug is fixed.

2020-05-11 Thread mrazster
Same problem here in Ubuntu (Focal) no matter the kernelversion, even with 
custom compiled kernels (wich is what I use)
The problem was however easy fixed, as per earlier description, with changing 
compression by editing /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf to use gzip and then 
do "sudo update-initramfs -u".

Running 20.04 here, and I've also noticed the same message. Maybe a
useful data point: I only see this on UEFI machines, my traditional BIOS
machines seem unaffected. Could it be something related to GRUB on UEFI?

Ye, I tried X,K,U,b ubuntu, and all boot without errors. I also prefer
gzip. I had the reverse though. I find gzip is faster than lz4, and I'm
using nvme for boot.

2020-05-05 Thread Ivan Prokopov
Appears after upgrade from 18.04 to 20.04. Doesn't seem to affect the
system but I preferred to use gzip instead of lz4 as for me it doesn't
slow the boot (perhaps related to the fact I have nvme) - I've made
several tests with both compression methods. But even if it slows a
couple seconds I prefer this then priority 0 error. I agree that it
either has to be fixed for the LTS versions kernels at least, as if you
do not plan to change to the next LTS you will stuck with the current
Kernel version, and it make sense in some case as for me some drivers
didn't work with other kernel versions. Or the priority has to be
lowered that it won't appear as emergency.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-04-29 Thread Leon Adato
I've been experiencing this for several months now (not exactly sure
when it started). For me, the error leads to a hard stop and the option
to Ctrl-D to continue or ENTER for maintenance.

I followed the process from #47 (Saroumane wrote on 2020-04-06:)

Adding COMPRESS=gzip to /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf (instead of lz4) 
then:
sudo update-grub;sudo update-initramfs -c -k all;sudo update-grub
Reboot.

Still got error message.

I restored COMPRESS=lz4 then
sudo update-grub;sudo update-initramfs -c -k all;sudo update-grub
Reboot 

Still failed

systemd-analyse says :
Startup finished in 158us (firmware) + 568us (loader) + 2.027s (kernel) + 1min 
31.97s (userspace) = 1min 33.999s
graphical.target never reached

I can eventually get back into the system through a combination of
multiple reboots and dumb luck, but this is pretty annoying.

I rebooted a 3rd time : no change, still no more Decoding errors.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-04-17 Thread Daniel Silva Capera
I am having the same trouble, but during INSTALLATION, I already
installed Ubuntu 20.04 twice and I haven't access to it yet. The first
time I got black screen (with safe graphics installation) then normal
installation didn't let me to install, and I try to reinstall with safe
graphics again. I got the same problem. (The first time I tried Ibunto
on normal mode without conplications, then after installing I had the
trouble).

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-04-17 Thread John Gilmore
This happened for me yesterday, when booting the main Ubuntu 20.04 beta
x86_64 iso on real hardware (not a virtual machine).  It has a graphical
splash screen but in the upper left corner I get this "console" message.
Then eventually in a few seconds, after it has fully booted, that splash
screen is replaced and the system has booted up fine.  But it's a worry-
producing message that should really not be there.  If the kernel is
actually able to handle the stock ISO's initramfs, then please change
the kernel boot process to not produce an error message when there is no
error.

In post#14, I showed how my gzip booted faster.

"We currently believe that the decoding error reported in dmesg is
actually harmless and has no impact on usability on the system."

If 'harmless', then why the error in the first place? Something is
causing it. Sticking the error in the sand is NOT the answer!

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-04-10 Thread Daniel Monteiro
For me its happening the same, if lz4 is activated get this initramfs
unpacking failed: Decoding failed at first line of boot, if switch to
gzip the error is gone, switching back to lz4 make the initramfs
unpacking failed: Decoding failed back again at boot, staying at gzip
for the time being.

Also no idea if relative, on my machine running Ubuntu Cinnamon 20.04 ,
when the lz4 is activated over the initramfs , it gives the error at
boot and will not show the oem logo during boot, if gzip is activated,
no error and it does show the oem logo during boot. Secure boot on my
machine have been always disabled and remains disabled.

[Touch-packages] [Bug 1835660] Re: initramfs unpacking failed

2020-04-06 Thread Saroumane
I had also the same message in dmesg. (I don't remember when it started)
Here : Ubuntu 19.10 booting a manually installed kernel (5.5.2-050502-generic)

I followed previous advices :

Adding COMPRESS=gzip to /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf  (instead of lz4) 
then :
$ sudo update-grub;sudo update-initramfs -c -k all;sudo update-grub
Reboot.
No more error message, and systemd-analyse says :
Startup finished in 15.790s (firmware) + 3.112s (loader) + 9.986s (kernel) + 
9.605s (userspace) = 38.495s 
graphical.target reached after 9.595s in userspace

I restored COMPRESS=lz4 then
$ sudo update-grub;sudo update-initramfs -c -k all;sudo update-grub
Reboot : still no error message, and systemd-analyse says :
Startup finished in 15.793s (firmware) + 3.188s (loader) + 8.962s (kernel) + 
11.645s (userspace) = 39.589s 
graphical.target reached after 11.635s in userspace
(Yes it's slower but it might be me : I have to choose in grub menu selection 
and type full disk encryption password)

I rebooted a 3rd time : no change, still no more Decoding errors.

Same message for me. The grub menu waits for at least 6 seconds, I
think, instead of 0.  I won't try anything crazy out before new package
version(s) appears, as it is a production system, and I can't repair it
in case booting fails. Attachment: the initial part of the dmesg log.

Edit initramfs.conf as su.

Rem out COMPRESS-lz4 line

Run update-initramfs -u - System will return with "COMPRESS parameter
not set".

Now edit initramfs.conf again. Remove the # on COMPRESS=lz4, run again
update-initramfs -u.

It will close without any error. Reboot.

I just did and no more failed message.

2020-04-02 Thread Dimitri John Ledkov
I see that init/initramfs.c in the kernel tries to unpack our initrd as
rootfs image, which is well, not going to happen, as it is not rootfs
image but early,early2,main(lz4 compat) initramfs.

I wonder if kernel is tripping up on such mixed compression initrd.

However, it still boots fine. So this error is a bit bogus.

Not sure if we should improve how we generate our initrds, or fix kernel
to cope with our initrds which have two early uncompressed ones,
followed by lz4 compatible one.
