Sabayon upgrade failure

I am running The following Sabayon system:

Code: Select all

Gentoo Base System release 2.6
DISTRIB_ID="Sabayon"
NAME=Sabayon
ID=sabayon
PRETTY_NAME="Sabayon/Linux"
ANSI_COLOR="1;32"
HOME_URL="https://www.sabayon.org/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://forum.sabayon.org/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.sabayon.org/"
Sabayon Linux amd64 18.10
Sabayon amd64 release 18.10
System runs fast and fine. When I do an update to the system it becomes very slow and stops booting at the CLI telling me that I am in emergency mode and I should look a the log file.

Here is the LOG FILE

I'm hoping someone can help me figure out why the system is doing what it is.

Thanks.

If you search for "error" in your logfile, you will find the following:

Code: Select all

Mar 28 07:22:54 sabayon kernel: udisks-lvm-pv-e[797]: segfault at 0 ip 000056388437b069 sp 00007fff7a60c3f0 error 4 in udisks-lvm-pv-export[56388437a000+2000]
Looks a likely candidate for your problem. I would try re-installing but specify the partitions explicitly without LVM, with ext4 as the filesystem for the root partition (and for the boot partition if you decide to have a separate boot partition; and for the home partition if you decide to have a separate home partition).

Thanks, how would an upgrade cause this? I have a backup of my system and I can revert, that's what I'm logged into now, and everything works fine. Only after the upgrade do I have this problem.

My guess would be the kernel.

OK, but I haven't upgraded the kernel yet. You think if I upgraded the kernel first that would fix the issue? I'm currently running 4.18.11

4.18.x is EOL. Move to at least 4.19.x

(not even sure if problem is caused by the kernel, but just saying)

Love to but doing so cause the system to want to upgrade. I might try this and see if the issue is removed when going to 4.20. Thnx.

Seems to me kernel problems, or errors in the file systems.

I reccomend you to try this:

Give Boot with s Live DVD or a Live pendrive (pendrive of boot, for installation of Sabayon)

Them, booted, correct the HD partitions but on the boot of the Live DVD...

Code: Select all

# fsck /dev/sdXY
# fsck /dev/sdWZ
sdXY ís your root partition, /, in wich Sabayon is installed, example... sda2...
sdWZ is you /home partition, example sda3...

After corrected, reboot the comp, remove the Live DVD ou Live pendrive and try to upgarde again.

OK, the problem only happens after I upgrade. If I don't upgrade then everything works without issues. So I do not believe the file system is the problem unless something changed from one version to another.

I've upgraded and booted into the system. So maybe there is something here I can llook at or post that might give someone an idea what is really not working?

I tried several things.

1. FSCK and that did not fix anything
2. Reinstall and the problem still exists

Thinking back this happened in the past also which was why I installed Gentoo for a while, about 3 years I run it. I got tired of fighting updates on Gentoo so I reinstalled Sabayon for the last ~3 years it run without issue but now with newer hardware I shouldn't have these issues. I'm at a loss of how to fix this. I might have to start looking at another OS if I cannot get this fixed.

I'm using my Laptop now and really don't want to upgrade it until the desktop works. :(
