This post is likely to talk about radeon and AMD drivers…
- Notebook upgrade = Fine (after some fiddling around with
Desktop machine ‘epoch’ = Fine (almost zero issues)
- Desktop machine ‘square’ = Non-responsive
Failed to get to systemd.initialized
Comment out (for now) in
This allows (for instance)
3.17.4-301.fc21 to boot,
but Plymouth not Quitting (
radeon is loaded). Therefore, chief
suspect is the AMD graphics drivers.
Make sure that
kernel-headers available for the latest
kernel available in the machine.
This last command will probably fail with an error similar to this :
The simplest (kludgiest) way to eliminate this error is to remove the reference to
flags.no_hotplug, by commenting it out (cringy, I know). So, simply :
Then redo the
make.sh and (if eveything goes through without complaint) carry on :
At this point, there should be no problem going back to the ‘GUI’ screen and running the installation from there - the source has been fixed up sufficiently. This will also re-do the blacklist thing, and (IIRC) set up the code to regenerate the module when the kernel is (minorly) upgraded.
