Description of problem:
After booting to mode 3, can't use sddm to start graphics mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora-Live-Jam-KDE-x86_64-rawhide-20140308.iso
2. Select Troubleshooting, use TAB to edit Boot with basic graphics to remove quiet, threadirqs and rggb and add 3
3. When boot prompt appears, log in as root.
/var/log contains logind error messages
If I try to use sddm (in VT2), the system tries to start a screen, but gets very sluggish and does I/O constantly on the DVD. The top command shows most time is spent in processes loop3 and ehci/irq17.
grep -n /var/log/messages (attached) contains the following lines of interest:
"1418:Mar 8 16:32:50 localhost systemd-logind: Failed to add match for NameOwnerChanged: Connection timed out
1419:Mar 8 16:32:50 localhost systemd-logind: Failed to fully start up daemon: Connection timed out
1438:Mar 8 16:32:54 localhost systemd: systemd-logind.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
1439:Mar 8 16:32:54 localhost systemd: Failed to start Login Service.
1440:Mar 8 16:32:54 localhost systemd: Unit systemd-logind.service entered failed state.
1444:Mar 8 16:32:54 localhost systemd: systemd-logind.service has no holdoff time, scheduling restart."
What systemd package version? If it is less than v210-15, can you first 'yum install systemd' to get the latest version, and then 'systemctl restart systemd-logind'. Does is still happen with those updates?
It was systemd-210-7.fc21.x86_64, and unchanged in Fedora-Live-Jam-KDE-x86_64-rawhide-20140309.iso. Since this is happening on a 1G machine, I tried noswap, thinking I might be having a page thrashing problem. The "ehci" messages no longer appeared in the output of the "top" command, and only the "loop3" command showed significant activity.
Did you mean v208-15 instead of vt210-15? The latest builds of I see on koji are:
"systemd-210-7.fc21 karsten 2014-03-07 16:13:02 complete
systemd-210-6.fc21 karsten 2014-03-07 14:30:31 complete
systemd-210-5.fc21 zbyszek 2014-03-07 06:21:04 complete
systemd-208-15.fc20 zbyszek 2014-03-05 06:57:45 complete
systemd-210-3.fc21 zbyszek 2014-03-01 13:39:39 complete"
Hm, is this ISO available for download somewhere?
Is this still a problem?
I tried with Fedora-Live-Jam-KDE-x86_64-rawhide-20140622.iso following your instructions, and things generally seem to work. I see some issue with systemd-journald-dev-log.socket, but that seems unrelated.
systemd-journal-dev-log.socket is #1112061.
Fedora-Live-Jam-KDE-x86_64-rawhide-20140627.iso works fine.
I'll close this now then. Please reopen if the issue resurfaces.
