Created attachment 1515511 [details]

Description of problem:
While 0.rc5.git3.1.vanilla.knurd.1.fc29 is working correctly, with the later kernel versions (rc6, rc7...) I experience the issue.

It shows a splash screen with ASUS logo after the kernel is selected in GRUB2; and nothing else happens.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.rc6.git01.vanilla.knurd.1.fc29 and above

How reproducible:
boot the computer

Steps to Reproduce:
boot my computer

Actual results:
stops boot with a splash screen.

Expected results:
after the splash screen it should display the login screen.

Additional info:
please, advice what log to include here.... I am attaching my /var/log/messages

Try removing "rhgb quiet" from the kernel command-line:

Method 1: Edit the kernel command-line from grub.

Method 2: Edit /etc/default/grub and then run:
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg  # it is a good idea to make a backup copy of grub.cfg first

Also, please remove any RPM Fusion packages before testing, so you are only reporting bugs against Fedora packages.

The Intel i7-6700K is a Skylake processor. If you are getting a boot hang, you could be seeing:

Bug 1660649 - r8169: hang or reboot when networking is enabled with kernel 4.19.9 on Intel Skylake system 

See if you can reproduce the hang using the method described in that bug report.

Comment 3 tothaa 2018-12-20 00:08:07 UTC
Thank you for your quick reply.

@ I am following advices from "2018-12-19 08:56:00 UTC":

> cp /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg_my_orig
> sudo featherpad /etc/default/grub    # commented out the options
> sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg

Now I see the messages :-) Thanks for the tips!

This is the last message, then loading stops:

    dec 20 01:19:57 localhost.localdomain kernel: fb0: switching to amdgpudrmfb from EFI VGA

Then I pressed CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart.

So I am attaching the logs here now:
> sudo journalctl -b -1 > /home/andrew/Letöltések/msgs_fail.txt
> sudo journalctl -b > /home/andrew/Letöltések/msgs_goodload.txt

But I found "amdgpu 0000:01:00.0: Fatal error during GPU init" in the log :S

Fusion should not had affected the boot...

> But I found "amdgpu 0000:01:00.0: Fatal error during GPU init" in the log :S

Thanks for pointing that out. This could be the problem:

dec 20 01:19:57 localhost.localdomain kernel: mc: Failed to load firmware "amdgpu/polaris11_k_mc.bin"

See: Bug 1520682 - amdgpu module fails to load firmware 

The firmware should be here:

$ rpm -ql linux-firmware | grep polaris11

The "lsinitrd" command will show what is in the initramfs:

# lsinitrd -k 4.20.0-0.rc7.git0.1.vanilla.knurd.1.fc29.x86_64 | grep polaris11

Comment 7 Steve 2018-12-20 07:29:47 UTC
Try updating linux-firmware from here:

Information for build linux-firmware-20181219-89.git0f22c852.fc29


# dnf update https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/linux-firmware/20181219/89.git0f22c852.fc29/noarch/linux-firmware-20181219-89.git0f22c852.fc29.noarch.rpm

Tested in an F29 VM:

$ rpm -q linux-firmware

$ rpm -ql linux-firmware | grep polaris11_k_mc.bin

Note that the package is not signed, because it hasn't been released:

$ rpm -qi linux-firmware | grep Signature
Signature   : (none)

Comment 8 Steve 2018-12-20 07:55:39 UTC
It seems this bug was reported 2018-12-16 17:21 UTC:

Bug 1659810 - linux-firmware: amdgpu fatal error during gpu init 

(In reply to Steve from comment #7)
> Try updating linux-firmware from here:

Anyway, I actually started here:

Fedora Packages Search

Although I could have started here:

Fedora Updates System

See, also:

Fedora Project Packages GIT repositories

I recommend bookmarking all of those ...

Comment 9 Steve 2018-12-21 03:37:11 UTC
According to a comment on Bodhi, the initramfs needs to be rebuilt:

bugfix update in Fedora 29 for linux-firmware

There aren't any examples in the comment, but try something like this:

# dracut --kver 4.20.0-0.rc7.git0.1.vanilla.knurd.1.fc29.x86_64 --force


$ man dracut

Comment 10 tothaa 2018-12-21 06:58:47 UTC
Hi All,
Thank you for your answer!

I updated linux-firmware as Steve suggested, but it did not make any difference.

I also updated my system and it installed kernel 4.20.0-0.rc7.git1.1.vanilla.knurd.1.fc29.x86_64. - with this, it loads fine again :-).


Comment 11 tothaa 2018-12-21 07:01:16 UTC
With the dracut tool on the 4.20.0-0.rc7.git0.1.vanilla.knurd.1.fc29.x86_64 version; it is now also working fine. Thank you!

Comment 12 Steve 2018-12-21 13:00:32 UTC
