upgraded 42.2 to 42.3, now have black screen.

Per Jessen
With 42.2 having gone EOL last week, I figured my office test system
ought to be upgraded to 42.3 too - not much chance of anything being
fixed on 42.2 anymore.
So I ran a 'zypper dup' which seemed to go fine - except

a) nfs mounts don't work.  I can't mount them manually either.
b) instead of a GUI login screen, I get a black screen with a mouse
pointer.

I can probably figure (a) out in time, but I'm a little stuck with (b).
I'm using the Nvidia drivers, they worked fine on 42.2.  

Suggestions on how to proceed with (b) much welcome.

did you reinstall nvidia drivers?  you probably have a different kernel.

does startx work?

about "a", did you try "exportfs"?

Yep, I use the Nvidia repo, I saw the drivers being rebuilt.

Will try.

:-)  when the fileserver was rebooted three months ago - besides, it
worked before the upgrade.

As client?

They work on the two systems I have updated, the desktop machine is still
on 42.2.

I have one test partition with 42.3 in this desktop with nvidia hardware.
Now at this moment I don't remember what driver I used. I can find out,
perhaps.

Telcontar:~ # chroot /other/ssd-test/
Telcontar:/ # rpm -qa | grep -i nvidia
Telcontar:/ # rpm -qa | grep -i nv
perl-Math-Base-Convert-0.11-3.11.noarch
libv4lconvert0-1.8.0-7.1.x86_64
Telcontar:/ #

Well, it is using the open driver.


> Suggestions on how to proceed with (b) much welcome.

Dark video... rings a bell, now... what was it?

This?

But it is closed as solved.

Are the home directories coming from nfs?

Any obvious errors in /var/log/Xorg.log?
I did a similar dup upgrade some time ago, including nvidia repo, and that
worked fine.

Console login and start X manually?

As for NFS: can you 'showmount -e <server>' from that machine (console)?

startx just reported that an x server was already running.

I see no need.  NFS works fine on the other desktops and whereeverelse
it is used.  (root on nfs for instance).  Anyway, it is a secondary
issue.

so you are not in multi-user

# ls -la /usr/bin/Xorg
-rws--x--x 1 root root 2402448 Jan 20 08:54 /usr/bin/Xorg*

is Xorg suid?

Oh sorry, yes, the desktop cannot mount NFS drives from an nfs server.

I'm sure it's something minor. It'll wait.

It is TW bug, maybe the fix didn't percolate down.
There is a mention of a fix of 50-nvidia.conf, I'll try that out.

There is also a mention of
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_the_hard_way

which says the following:

> NVIDIA proprietary driver works flawlessly on Leap 42.2. On Leap 42.3

However, my system doesn't have that installed anyway.

No, they're just two separate data directories.  I would love to
have /home on NFS, but our client base is too varied.

That sounds good.  I have posted Xorg.0.log here -

http://files.jessen.ch/office37-Xorg.0.log.txt

The only suspicious lines I spotted were these two:

[   130.685] (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version
1.4: Permission denied
[   130.935] (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version
1.4: Permission denied

X seems to be started - I have a mouse pointer and 'startx' says it is
running.

# showmount -e rainbow
Export list for rainbow:
/srv/nfsroot/zotac1    192.168.3.67
/srv/nfsroot/stork9    stork9.hrbrz2
/srv/nfsroot/office36

/home                  2a03:7520:4c68:1:ff99::8975,192.168.0.0/16

The two directories are under /home.  The IPv6 address listed is not
valid for this system, so the mount should just fall back to ipv4, but
it doesn't.

Try this query:

rpm -q -a --queryformat "%{INSTALLTIME}\t%{INSTALLTIME:day} \
    %{BUILDTIME:day} %-30{NAME}\t%15{VERSION}-%-7{RELEASE}\t%{arch} \
    %25{VENDOR}%25{PACKAGER} == %{DISTRIBUTION} %{DISTTAG}\n"  \
   | sort | cut --fields="2-" | tee rpmlist   \
   | egrep -v "openSUSE\ Leap\ 42\.3|openSUSE_Leap_42\.3" | less -S

and examine the result for packages that were not upgraded

Re: upgraded 42.2 to 42.3, now have black screen.

In reply to this post by Per Jessen

Out of curiosity, might you be running into the bug that several of us on TW hit last week. It sounds very similar to what I ran into at least.

I'll paste that email in below, in case it helps at all.

Chris


Yesterday afternoon I upgraded my laptop to Tumbleweed 20180116. I
don't remember the Tumbleweed serial that I was on before then specifically, but my last upgrade day
was Jan 8 of this year.

Following the upgrade, after rebooting my laptop and logging into
Plasma, I was greeted with a black screen with a mouse cursor.

The weird thing is I could still hear my computer sounds in the
background, and the mouse cursor would change shape based on what was
underneath it. Eg., KGPG prompts for my password on login, and I could
enter the password and hit enter and the mouse cursor would change
appropriately. I could also (blindly) do alt+f2, type in
konsole<enter>, type in screen<enter>, start a ping, and then resume
that screen session from one of the virtual terminals. So it was as if
KDE was running but hidden.

I tried creating a new user account and trying to log into it (same
issue,) so I knew that it wasn't a profile problem. So, I rebooted and
tried to log in, and as soon as I did that, I did the following from a
virtual terminal:

journalctl > journalctl.txt
dmesg > dmesg.txt


Looking at the journalctl file, I saw this:


Jan 18 14:14:28 caradhras.millikin.edu org.kde.kglobalaccel[5242]:
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate
Jan 18 14:14:28 caradhras.millikin.edu org.kde.kglobalaccel[5242]:
libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open swrast (search paths
/usr/lib64/dri)


I did some poking around on Google, and saw references to
problems with libmesa, so I decided to force-reinstall it just to be
safe.

As I was telling YaST to "upgrade" the various Mesa packages, as soon
as I did that with the "Mesa" package, it auto-added two additional
packages that weren't installed at the time - Mesa-dri and Mesa-
gallium. After reinstalling all of the Mesa packages (including those
two additional ones) and rebooting, all was back to normal again :) So  it seems as if possibly that dependency wasn't set up correctly?

Okay, that gave me the KDE GUI, as root, without logging in.

Will try it - on 42.2, /usr/bin/Xorg doesn't have suid either though.

Just tried it, rebooted, still just black screen with mouse pointer.

Then that means that the graphics driver is not the issue. It is the
display manager.
