Boot hangs at "Reached target Initrd Root Device - X1 gen 6 laptop.

User Icon hno commented & provided feedback 3 months ago

Same issue as @ykaul , @tknot and @gtwilliamsbut works otherwise if one removes the suspend= kernel argument.

This issue is not new in this build. Also present in at least 15.12.12 (current stable release). Not even sure it is a kernel issue, may just as well be a dracut issue in how it handles the suspend option.

Issue filed as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1976621

Karma+ as it's not worse than current stable release.

Kernel passed default kernel test and Selinux test. The output of performance test was not displayed in terminal, instead the config file was opened again by performance test.

Test bench is virtualised fedora workstation running in gnome box with allocated 20gib hdd and 2.5gib ram. Host OS is Fedora workstation running on 10th gen intel i3 processor, 8gib ram and 1TB hdd(HP 240 G8 laptop).

For those of you seeing boot issues with this kernel, can you please make sure you have either dracut 0.53 or 0.55-2 installed and regenerate the initramfs? It seems that 0.54 broke a lot of systems, and 0.55-2 fixed (some of) them. If you fail with 0.55-2 try 0.53 and report back. I certainly do not want to send out a kernel which breaks boot on a number of systems, but I think in this case, the kernel isn't actually the problem. I would like to verify.

@jfobes I tried to regenerate the initramfs with dracut-055-2 but I was not succeed. So I downgraded dracut to version 053-4 after that I have no boot issue with "Reached target Initrd Root Device" on my Thinkpad X230. I think it is a dracut issue.

cachedrop test fails on my Dell Inspiron 3180 11", all other tests pass, kernel functions fine as a daily driver

@jforbes this update will cause some more laptops to break with long boot delay even if it's not really a kernel issue but a dracut issue.

Known workaround for the dracut issue is to regenerate the initramfs without dbus.

dracut -o "dbus" -f

or do downgrade dracut to 053-4 and regenerate the initramfs.

Alex Deucher from AMD has confirmed the above issue for 5.12.13. The bug has been fixed in 5.13 and fix is submitted for stable.

This update has been pushed to stable.
