@g33k said in kernel 4.5-1 issues with ZFS after update today:
but when i go to merge the files only /etc/lightdm/lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf exists. and when i reboot i have no GUI but can get a terminal via “alt ctrl F2”.
but when i reboot after the new kernel and kernel headers are installed i get a rootfs# promt as described above
I’m afraid you’re experimenting two problems at the same time. This warning is about a problem with lightdm, that it has been already solved, but as you are updating, the problem arises. Do not worry about it as it will disappear when you manage to update.
The problem is that when you update, zfs ceases to work and then you can’t boot, that’s why you get a rootfs prompt.
Let’s try another approach. Use the linux-lts kernel.
So, install linux-lts and linux-lts-headers. Check the output to see if zfs is rebuilt for this kernel. If it does, then reboot and in the grub menu select linux lts
Tell me how it goes.
