filesystem ... does not contain valid init=/sbin/init

Postby udiljak » Sat Apr 05, 2014 12:45

Hi everybody.

Yesterday I upgraded my system and updated the kernel from 3.9 to 3.13. When I rebooted the laptop I only received the message:

filesystem ... mounted on /newroot does not contain valid init=/sbin/init

(the ... stands for the lvm root partition)

I can't start older kernels neither! (Similar error message)

Please help!

Hi, I have the same problem and I changed the line in grub of linuxrc to systemd path and don't work. I get this allways:
Code: Select all
[      1.273296] drm/i810 does not support SMP
mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically
  3 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_asterix" now active
!! The filesystem /dev/mapper/vg_asterix-lv_root, mounted at /newsroot does not contain a valid init=/sbin/init
!! Please file a bug report with this message

My laptop is a 32bits system and I press ctrl+e in bootand I change init=/linuxrc for init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd after I press ctrl+x and boot and I get the same message. How can I recovery my system?

Hi.

Thanks for your hint.

I can boot my system with the 3.13 kernel, but not for the old 3.9 kernel. Same message "no valid init=/sbin/init" although I changed "init=/linuxrc" to "init=/usr/lib64/systemd/systemd".

With the 3.13 kernel I have not network. When I try to open networ preferences I get a message like "not compatible with this version".
The symlink "/sbin/init" is pointing to a non-existing file.
Reinstalling every package with "systemd" doesn't help. Another related packege seemed to be "sysvinit". When I reinstall that one I get an error like "sysvinit is not a valid target".

Sorry for not giving exact error messages. I have only one computer and I have to boot a live CD to write this post.

Greetings,
Ben

Are you you guys using the limbo repo by any chance?

If you are, make sure you're including that when making these posts.

Ok thanks, it worked, but when I try to change this in /etc/default/grub GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and I do grub2-mkconfig the grub conf changes but when I reboot I get the same message and it have linuxrc in the conf. How can I change this? I'm not using limbo repo.

I assume, that in the meantime too many things have been changed (sysvinit to systemd?).
You may consider to make a complete new install from a daily build. It should be possible to start the installation icon successfully now. (Some days before, there was a bug, which prevented this).
