• [solved] Failed to Load Kernel Modules on startup


    The when I boot it gives me the error that it failed to load kernel modules, and it says to run

    systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service
    

    And here is the output of that

    ● systemd-modules-load.service - Load Kernel Modules
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-modules-load.service; static; vendor     preset: disabled)

    Attached is systemd log[journal](uploading 100%)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

    Hi,

    What do you have in your /etc/modules-load.d directory?

    EDIT: Oh, also check your /usr/lib/modules-load.d directory

  • @karasu I have nothing in /etc/modules-load.d

    and I have two files in /usr/lib/modules-load.d
    they are:

    acpi_call.conf
    ntfs_utils.conf

    Thank you so much for responding. :smiley:

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • Hi again,

    OK, humour me. Please move those files to somewhere else (somewhere safe) like in your home folder.
    Reboot and check again your logs. Is system-modules-load still complaining?
    This is just so we can rule out if these files are trying to load some module that for an unknown reason has problems to load on boot.

    EDIT: Do you get any output when you run sudo /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-modules-load ?

    Cheers!

  • @karasu said:

    sudo /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-modules-load

    There was no error after I moved the files. Also, I ran the command (after I moved the files) and there was no output.

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • @karasu Was this all I needed to do? Will moving those files be ok in the long run?

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • Hi,

    No, this was just to pinpoint where is the problem. Copy just one of them and check output. We need to know which one is the culprit.

  • Ok so I put the acpi_call.conf back and I got the error again.

    Also, I dont know if this is worth mentioning, but before I get the

    starting version 226
    

    thingie

    I get an error like dcm: Failed to load acpi_handle (then a path to a file)

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • I get an error like dcm: Failed to load acpi_handle (then a path to a file)

    mmmm… what file?

    Also, check that you have the acpi package installed, and the service activated:

    sudo pacman -S acpid
    sudo systemctl enable acpid
    
  • @karasu Ok so I installed acpid and enabled the service. But I am still getting the error

    Also this is the error I get at boot
    dmar: Failed to find handle for ACPI object _SB.PCI0.SDHC
    dmar: Failed to find handle for ACPI object _SB.PCI0.SDMA

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • Any help would be appreciated

  • I’m sorry but I’m out of ideas here. It’s obvious you have an ACPI problem, but I really don’t know which should be the next step to diagnose your problem.

    Let’s see if anybody else can jump and help here.

  • least your specs here please

  • Turns out I needed the acpi_call-lts package, because I was using the lts kernel

    Cheers! I don't know what I'm talking about!

  • Glad you find it, and thanks for sharing it.
    I’m sure it will help others.

    Cheers!
