Last night I had 14 updates available for my system, I did them as I normally did (didn’t really pay any attention to what was being updated) and it went through, a prompt came up that certain files couldn’t be found,the only one I recall was libc.so and that might even be wrong
I closed the prompt and actually noticed things were misbehaving a bit so restart the computer, GRUB comes up without issue but when the system tries to boot I get some network errors that always happen and then just a plain black screen.
Not 100% certain what is going on, I do have VGA passthrough set-up for a gaming Windows VM and am using the proprietarey Nvidia diriver,though I don’t think that is what is causing the issue. I have been able to load up my system with just the command line, can’t remember the specific kernal parameter now and using journalctl --boot=-1 (I let the system boot then restarted into the command line) it looks like the error before everything goes belly up is the following lines:
libvirtd: unsupported configuration: cannot fine logical volume group name ‘windows_gaming’
libvirtd: internal error: Failed to autostart storage pool ‘windows_vm’: unsupported configuration: cannot find logical volume group name ‘windows_gaming’
libvirtd: cannot open directory ‘/home/richard/OldCompStuff/Stuff 3’: no such file or directory
libvirtd: internal error: Failed to autostart storage pool ‘Stuff 3’
Also a few lines after that systemd-coredump reports: Process 570 (cinnamon-sessio) of user 1000 dumped core.
Not sure if those lvm’s are causing the issue but the odd thing is I no longer use them anymore, when I was getting things set-up I believe I set-up a lvm called windows_gaming but I abandoned that idea and just have a partition with a qcow file on it. I was fairly certain that I removed the lvm I created. Also that directory used to contain my old HDD’s from my old Windows set-up which is no longer present.
/etc/fstab is not trying to mount any of those locations so I wander if libvirt updated and this new version doesn’t like something I did before that has managed to persist, toruble is I have no idea where to start looking, lvdisplay has no entries in it. I also tried pvdisplay and vgdisplay but they all returned nothing.
Thanks for any help
