Restoring service links [Solved]

#1 Post by rasat » Fri Mar 16, 2018 7:34 pm

Live CD 17.1 (same also in 17) hangs at "live-restore-services: Restoring service links".

Before running to this line, everything is clean and smooth. Why this has to be in live CD at first place? Keep it simple!!

Are you asking for help, or just offering critique?

Help and a suggestion.

Is there a way how to disable the "live-restore-services", so that I can use the live CD to install.

this is odd, and may indicate a problem with your media.

however,

if you want to disable live-restore-services then follow this procedure

1. add a bp=5 to the boot code line in grub. if a legacy boot, you can do this in the little bar below the boot menu with the "quiet" in it. if uefi, then you need to select a boot option, then hit 'e' to edit the grub2 entry. scroll to the vmlinuz line and add bp=5 after the "quiet". hit F10 to continue boot.

2. at the break point prompt,

Code: Select all

cd /etc/init.d
rm live-disable-services live-restore-services
3. type 'exit' to continue boot.

Thanks. I did as you instructed. Its not a problem with live-restore-services. After removing, hangs at one line earlier... Starting SMB/CIFS daemon. Could it be its with my media (Dell 5567)... this model shows problem in other forum.... similar to mine..... reason why I am reinstalling.

I will unplug my laptop HDD and install 17.1 with my PC.

Keep you updated.

looks like a bug hit the kernel.

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=891467

a note from the bug report

Code: Select all

While the system comes up the disks are not useable.
that would be bad. the kernel in the bug report isn't quite ours, but its pretty close.

you could use a liveUSB with persistence to drop the kernel down to an earlier kernel, then install after the liveusb is updated.

I video the procedure here on an antiX live-USB, but the procedure is the same. the kernel I would recommend is the 4.9 debian kernel and mx-packageinstaller-popular apps -> Kernels lists it for easy installation.

I am glad you are following up this issue.

Before doing any HDD unplug and install, I tested the live CD in my PC. Works fine.... well done. I noticed that after the "live-restore-services" comes the "cli-installer".... it is there where my current machine hangs.

Instead of reinstalling, how do I degrade my kernel to earlier version..... is the instruction there in the video you mentioned?

Thank you dolphin_oracle, you saved my day..... no need to reinstall my system.

With MX Package Installer, I installed kernel antix-4.9-64bit. Works fine..... stops 1 sec at "cli-installer" and continues to WM.
