Mint fails to boot after kernel update

Post by GPrimrose »

Yesterday (7/6/24) there was a software update (Linux kernal) on my laptop. Since then it fails to boot - I just get a dark screen. I downloaded and verified the latest version (Cinnamon Edge) and booted up from a USB stick. I could see my files on the hard drive but am unable to access them due to permissions. All I want to do is get access to my files, back them up (I known I should have already done so!) and continue with a fresh installation from the USB stick. Is this possible?

Hello, GPrimrose.

Before doing anything drastic, though it may not be required, start booting your installed system with the previous kernel.
After powering on the machine, invoked the Grub boot menu.
Select the "Advanced options for Linux Mint 21.3".
Inside this submenu select the previous kernel and boot it.

Provided your system comes up properly, you can use Update Manager and uninstall the failing kernel from your system.

HTH,

Hi Karl,

thanks for the quick answer. Unfortunately I am not a Linux power user. How do I invoke the Grub boot menu?

Hello, GPrimrose.

In case your machine is old and uses MBR boot (like mine), then right after power on you have to press the <shift> key once or twice in order to make the Grub boot menu appear on the screen.

In case your machine is more recent (came with Windows 10 pre-installed when you bought it e.g.) and uses UEFI boot, then right after power on you have to press the <ESC> key several times in order to make the Grub boot menu appear on the screen.

HTH,
Karl

Here's way to get a 10 sec delay in your grub boot. I beats the quick key hit and miss method.

In a terminal run sudo nano /etc/default/grub to open grub for editing in nano. Then change the following two lines:

Code: Select all

GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0
To this:

Code: Select all

#GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
which comments out the first line (so it is not run) and shows the menu for 10 seconds instead of 0 seconds before defaulting to the first option.

Save the file and then in a terminal run sudo update-grub. The menu should show on your subsequent boot cycle.

Hi Karl,

I managed to interrupt the boot process by pressing the ESC key but instead of a menu I get the following:-

Minimal BASH-like editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command line completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.

Doesn't mean much to me!

Thanks.

Re: Mint fails to boot after kernel update

I've had this problem too. Kernel update yesterday (5.15.0-112) results in no boot, just blank screen.

I just booted to previous kernel (5.15.0-107) and uninstalled latest and blocked it.

Steps I took to fix:
  1. Hold shift on boot. Should get the GRUB menu
  2. Select Advanced options, and then the previous kernel.
  3. Once booted, go into Update Manager, select the 'View' menu and 'Linux Kernels'
  4. Select the '5.15' section, make sure the 107 kernel is active, and pick the '5.15.0-112' kernel, and 'Remove'
  5. Back in the main Update Manager window, the new, faulty, kernel will reappear as an update, right-click and select Ignore this version (NOT All)
Any ideas how to raise this with the maintainers?

FIXED!

Thanks to everyone who posted advice!

Once I managed to get to the Grub menu I was sorted in seconds. I will keep regular backups of my files on an external drive from now on!

Re: Mint fails to boot after kernel update

Post by i9vhyi8pi »

I am also having a problem with the new kernel, as far as I can tell. I have some logs or code something :oops:

This what I get after a normal boot.
`[ 0.338028] ACPI BIOS Error (bug): Could not resolve symbol [\SB.PCIO.GPP2.BCM5], AE_NOT_FOUND (20210730/dswlod2-162)
[ 0.338062] ACPI Error: AE_NOT_FOUND, During name lookup/catalog (20210730/psobject-220)
_`

The screen goes black and the pc stops thinking.


When using safe mode, I noticed it said
`Physical Volumes: not ok (bad)`


I was able to boot up from the safe mode menu.


I also noticed some .Private and .ecryptfs shortcut links in my Home directory which I'm sure weren't there before. These appeared some weeks prior to updating to the new kernel.


Using the GRUB menu, I was able to boot up normally with the previous kernel.

Hello, i9vhyi8pi.

Please, share your Linux Mint system information with as. Simple steps how to do so here:
Include your System Information for help with technical problems

You system information should give a hint whether your GPU is among those affected by a specific kernel bug. The details which you shared in your post suggest that your problem is different.

"ACPI BIOS Error" indicates that your bios is out of date. Update it to the latest always.

The system information you just posted indicates your computer has the same graphics as all the other ones experiencing an issue with the 5.15.0-112 kernel. The problem is AMD Picasso/Raven 2 graphics.

You should create a new topic for any issues you are having related to physical volumes not ok or any encryption issues.

Is it fine that I continue using the previous kernel? Also is there a topic covering AMD Picasso and Raven 2?
I will create a new topic for the other issues.

Yes. They are working on a fix that is hoped to be released in a future kernel version.

Covering it for what?

There's a sticky topic at the top of the Installation & Boot forum Failed to boot after upgarding to 5.15.0-112-generic from 5.15.0-107-generic where many people posted their graphics info and it's mostly the same as what you have.

Unless you could explain it to me, I just want to be able to automatically start on the previous kernel, without the need for GRUB. That's why I was looking for more info.

Sorry, I did not realize that's the info you needed.

What you wan to do is boot with the previous kernel then remove the -112 kernel using Update Manager, put the update on hold, and then Linux Mint will automatically boot the previous kernel. That is explained in the second post of the other sticky topic on the issue (the one in announcements section at the top) Kernel update 5.15.0-112 might cause severe problems with specific AMD GPUs. If you have questions with the instructions, post them in that topic. Karl included lots of screenshots so I think you will probably understand the instructions.

No need to apologize, and thank you for explaining that. It helps a bunch.

1 more question if I may. Could updating my apps without the latest kernel potentially make them unusable?

I would not expect that to happen. If you have concerns, make sure you have a Timeshift snapshot of your system before updating apps.
