Booting Sabayon fails since the last equo upgrade [Solved]

Post by Freier Radikaler » Thu Feb 01, 2018 16:06

since the last equo update/upgrade I can't boot my Sabayon Linux anymore.
After the upgrade was successfully installed I tried to reboot the mashine. However the reboot and poweroff binary(-links) weren't there anymore. So I had to reset the mashine by hand. Since then the boot process gets stuck shortly after the decryption of the HDD and systemd start. There is no obvious error. However systemd complains about "System is tainted: var_run-bad".
The full output shortly before entering the encryption key and all output after this looks as follows:

Code: Select all

starting version 233
Could not get boot entry.
** No iSCSI initiator found
Encryption password (/dev/sda3): : ****************************************

uvcvideo 1-12:1.0: Entity type for entity Camera 1 was not initialized!
After this the booting process stops.

I'm able to chroot into the not booting Sabayon if I boot with a USB-LiveStick. Within the chroot everything look fine. I can install programms using equo or emerge without problems. I also did an "equo --empty install systemd" which installed all necessary dependencies again. Unfortunately without any improvement.
Debugging is really complicated as I don't get to the point in the booting process where a terminal would be available.

I assume this problem is related to the change of systemd and the sysvinit behavior that was mentioned in the "eselect news read" section by End of January 2018.

Does somebody know how I can figure out what is going wrong / I can fix the issue?

I installed Sabayon with my DVD .
Got the upgrade with RIGO.
Rebooted the system and now I have no desktop.
I have no taskbar.
I have no launch pad.
All I have is my host name with a blinking cursor.
Anyone feel like helping me out?

Hi, bunjee50.

We would need some more information from you:
  • Did you installed Monthly or Daily image? (link to the download page you used would help. We need the name of the ISO file)
  • Which Desktop Environment did you used? (GNOME, KDE, …)
  • Do you get to the login screen or do you experience your situation before?
