I cannot boot ubuntu correctly since last kernel update.
uname -r gives 4.4.0-83-generic
After booting, I get following message:
lvmetad is not active yet, using direct activation during sysinit /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root: clean, 1014488/15097856 files, 29730400/60376064 blocks
Basycally, I have the very same error than Lvmetad is not active yet except no login screen is shown: it freezes here. Waiting very long doesn't change anything.
I tried the following solutions by using tty2:
uselvmetad = 0change in
/etc/lvm/lvm.conf==> no change
- lvmetad is blocking boot process except when I wait very long, nothing happen. My
/proc/swapsfile was empty like OP. After doing his solution, here's the cat of it:
/dev/dm-1 partition 8302588 0 -1==> still no booting. Note that
update-initramfs -k all -cworked properly for the last 3 installed kernels, bugged for the previous ones (that I removed with
apt-get autoremovenot sure why they appear but this seems unrelated to my issue)
- I enabled and started the lvm2-lvmetad.service and .socket such as explained here https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/199164/error-run-lvm-lvmetad-socket-connect-failed-no-such-file-or-directory-but .
- I did try some of the solution from a live ubuntu USB stick
- I did try some of the solution from recovery-mode: at some points it crashes and I have no time to read the error messages
- I did try to return to previous kernells: samely unabootable.
I cannot copy and paste, but I can say that:
>> sudo lvdisplay
/dev/ubuntu-vg/swap_1 appear correctly
>> sudo blkid
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root with ext4 and
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1 with swap type appear correctly and UUID of the latter corresponds under
>>cat /etc/fstab /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 UUID=XXX /boot ext2 defaults 0 2#the correct UUID appears here, just too long to copy #/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1 none swap swap 0 0#this was commented out manually /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1 swap swap defaults 0 0#this was added manually
I tried alternatively to use /dev/ubuntu-vg/root and ./swap as well as use the UUIDs instead: no change.
I believe the problem comes from displaying, so here is a sample of lspci
>>lspci -v XXX [AMD/ATI] Tonga PRO [Radeon R9 285/380] (rev f1) Kernel driver in use: amdgpu Kernel modules: amdgpu
Down-voting because already asked on the forum? Please be constructive and comment with the link to the solution I did not already try. thank you.
EDIT: I tried to update my grub, but I had a lot of errors due to disabled lvmetad. I rechanged lvmetad to 1, then did update grub with no problem. Now when I reboot, only the second line appears, not the first, e.g.:
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root: clean, 1014488/15097856 files, 29730400/60376064 blocks
I guess it's normal as now lvmetad is reactivated.
EDIT2: It seems I do have a problem with either amdgpu-pro or xorg. I cannot display correctly, even with live-USB (forgot to mention that). Readding tags
