Won't start after last update

Hi yesterday (6 November)I upgraded my laptop (ideapad 330s-15arr) to the latest build with swupd update and after that it refuse to boot. Before that it was working perfect with luks encryption and the dkpm driver for WiFi and touchpad. Any idea what can be gone wrong and how can I fix it without reinstall everything?

Do you have the option of booting the previous kernel from the bootloader? Any useful output on the screen?

Can you push and hold space while it is booting to interrupt the bootloader?
What is the version of the kernel it is trying to boot?
If you select any older kernel does it work?

I’m wondering if this GitHub report is related: https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/1459


Ok it worked, it was trying to boot 5.3.8-859, but with the older one 5.3.8-854 I have a perfect boot. And yes it seams related with the report you linked. I will add my configuration to that conversation. Thanks you a lot

Same problem with 5.3.10-867, 5.3.8-854 works correctly

Hi @Piero_Simonetto,
Could you please open a new issue on github and reference the old one? There’s obviously something we’re not catching here.

Could you also note if the 5.3.9 kernel that was working for the other person worked for you?

Not sure if it’s exactly the same problem as i have a Ryzen 1700, Radeon RX560 and Asus Prime M350-A MB. I too can boot without problem with , but and subsequent kernels (when i updated ) resulted in a black screen and reboot of the PC.

Ok here it is: https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/1487

Warm reboot will fail, example if you use ‘reboot’ in terminal to reboot the system. But if you shutdown the system totally and cold boot the system up, it will boot successfully. I tested on both clear-linux-native-5.3.11-868 and clear-linux-native-5.3.10-687. I suspect some clean up not done properly before clear linux reboot the system in warm boot mode.

Previous behavior with newer kernels has been as described in bug https://github.com/clearlinux/distribution/issues/1486
The latest kernel 5.3.11-868 failed this morning from a “cold boot” when i switched on the PC. Is your system AMD based ?

Yes my pc is amd based it’s a rayzen 5 2500u processor

@Piero_Simonetto Sorry I knew you had a AMD system :slightly_smiling_face:
I was replying to @hong.wei.phang , when he said that he was able to boot with kernel 5.3.11-868.

my system is intel cpu。

@Piero_Simonetto On my machine native.5.3.11-869 is booting correctly :+1:


Yes works in my computer too, thanks

clear-linux-native-5.3.11-869 (31670) still not working on my Intel machine.

@hong.wei.phang It would appear to be another error not related to using a AMD cpu ?
I have upgraded my old laptop (intel Broadwell cpu) to clear-linux-native-5.3.11-869 (31670) and it boots fine.
Also i am unclear as to your problem, was native-5.3.10-687 working and now native-5.3.11-869 is not ?
To avoid confusion as this thread is marked solved, perhaps you should create a new one ?

Both releases native-5.3.10-687 and native-5.3.11-869 not working on my system. My system is X299 AORUS Gaming Pro with American Megatrends BIOS, BIOS version is F4h.

Updated my system BIOS to FCh, native-5.3.11-869 now working on my system is working. Thanks.

@hong.wei.phang I understood from the above statement that native-5.3.10-687 booted sucessfully after a “cold boot” ? and native-5.3.11-869 does not work with this method ?

@ahkok Could you help this guy ? I have some experience with Linux, but i’m a “Clear” newbie :slightly_smiling_face:
