Errors in Boot Log for Dell M300
February 16, 2020 05:43PM
A fresh install of the 5.2.9 file system and 5.5.1 kernel. After 2 or 3 clean boots, ran into this on the serial connection:

Preceding this, there was a segmentation fault while trying to edit the .profile file using nano. The system kept running and seemed OK, but nano always produced a segmentation fault. Did a reboot from the command line is serial and got the above bootlog.

Hi Mike,

Is this while in the SSH session?

Shutdown and if you could, bring the rootfs to another Linux box and run e2fsck to check for file system error.

Or if the rootfs is on HDD, you could boot with USB on this box, and run e2fsck from there. I recalled that I have not been clear about booting USB rootfs while there is a HDD rootfs inside. So that you might need to do this in serial console. Let me know if you need to do this (cannot check the rootfs on another Linux box).

If your e2fsck shows no errors on file system, I'll need to look at my M300 with serial console to verify whether it is a general problem, or just your box.

You can test to see if your serial console causing problem. Shutdown, disconnect serial console and power up. SSH in and see if there is error in dmesg.

OK, I can do all. Will be tomorrow. Note that the boot process does a fsck and finds it clean. The nano seg fault was in SSH, I'm pretty sure.

Interesting thought on the serial, I've been running that for testing. My other M300 is ssh only and has been good.

I think this problem started after I put the second partition of the SSD into the fstab. I created the file system on this partition using the -j parameter on mke2fs. But, for some reason I called the second partition ext4 in fstab.
root@m300-2:~# cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
LABEL=sata_rootfs    /               ext3    noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
LABEL=data	/mnt/data		ext4 	defaults,noatime  0	2
tmpfs          /tmp            tmpfs   defaults          0       0

Here's the SSD setup:
root@m300-2:~# blkid
/dev/sda1: LABEL="sata_rootfs" UUID="2b4c98d6-a7fd-4274-a336-749fb9223cf2" TYPE="ext3" PARTUUID="0a679d7f-01"
/dev/sda2: LABEL="data" UUID="75e9b459-2b7a-4f8c-a06a-854d0c8a8cef" TYPE="ext3" PARTUUID="0a679d7f-02"
Note that blkid thinks it is ext3.

df thinks it is ext4, but is that because I called it ext4 in fstab? Clearly, I'm not clear if -j only means ext3.
root@m300-2:~# df -Th

tmpfs          tmpfs     881M     0  881M   0% /tmp

I'll set fstab to ext3, reboot, and do your suggested tests.

Update: Booted M300 from USB with serial connected and from SSH, ran e2fsck, both partitions clean:
root@M300-usb:~# e2fsck /dev/sda1
e2fsck 1.44.5 (15-Dec-2018)
sata_rootfs: clean, 40785/262144 files, 303311/1048576 blocks

/dev/sdb1: LABEL="rootfs" UUID="d7f52bc6-463d-4440-a877-1f4eb0bbbdef" TYPE="ext3" PARTUUID="10c19223-01"

My environments are setup to check USB for a rootfs label, if found, boot from USB. If not found, check SATA for sata-rootfs and if found boot from there. The hostname of the USB is M300-usb to prevent confusion.

I'll leave things running and try some stuff to see if anything happens.

Re: Errors in Boot Log for Dell M300

Mike,

You are running without swap. That could be bad in a lot of ways. This box has a lot of RAM, it would not need swap normally. But as usual, swap space should be always allocated (the Linux kernel memory management works better when there is swap space).

In my basic rootfs, there is no pre-allocate swap partition or file. I let it up to the users to decide whether to use swap file or partition. And I'd recommend swap file (it is much more flexible and there is virtually no difference in performance from swap partition).

Here is an example to create a 1GB swap file at root directory (use whatever you like in this box, I would use at least 1GB swap file on the HDD/SSD rootfs).

dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile1 bs=1024 count=1048576

And then modify fstab:

cat /etc/fstab | grep swap
/swapfile1     swap            swap    defaults          0       0

And reboot. Now you should have a swap space of 1GB early on during boot.

See if it helps with this probelm.

No joy getting the swap file setup:

swapon: /swapfile1: insecure permissions 0644, 0600 suggested.

Need to do:
mkswap /swapfile1
then swapon or reboot to get it to work.

Update: dmesg from reboot:

Is that what should be expected? sda1 is 4GB for the rootfs, sda2 is the remainder of the 16GB SSD.

Cool! That's confirmed what I thought seeing the log.

Linux memory management has this quirk. Even though the box has a lot of RAM, during boot (and when it is really out of memory) it makes a difference if there is swap space. The explanation is a long and kind of make sense if we ever have time to discuss this.

Second boot witth swap on and serial connected failed. Filled the PuTTy buffer with this repeating message until I killed the power. So, I missed where it started:

Booted again and this time successful.

:)) right. The some paging out activity occured during boot does not like no swap space.

These are good workaround for this problem. However, if you update your initramfs (i.e. update-initramfs -u, and then regenerate the uInitrd), I don't think this is necessary in the latest Debian distribution.

I updated the initramfs using update-initramfs -u, and regenerated uInitrd. It apparently did something, as the new file size was slightly different than previous.

Booted OK.

Any significance to these?

Other boot errors I've had also relate to this libc.so.6 file (which is linked to libc-2.28.so). Note that I did apt-get update/apt-get upgrade on this box. Could this have created a version mismatch or something? Is there a log of what update did? I can't find one.

That a good sign. Meaning you really needed to regenerate it.

Only the udevadm error above is relevant. However, I would test boot a couple time with both SATA rootfs and another non-rootfs USB drive plugged in at boot.

The logs can be found in /var/log.

Each time you do apt-get upgrade, a new initrd might be created and apt will output a message like this (suppose you are running 5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1):
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1
Then you need to recreate uInitrd.

If you don't recall seeing that or not (e.g. exiting terminal) then do a listing to check the timestamp.
ls -lart /boot
If you see uInitrd is older than the latest initrd.img-5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1 kernel file then you know that uInitrd is obsolete and need to be recreated (This is the reason my instruction always uses "cp -a" so that timestamp is preserved when a file is copied).

Updating my recent results:
  1. Successfully booted from the internal SSD with a non-rootfs USB plugged-in several times. The presence of the USB slows down the boot process between the Starting version v241 and Loading essential drivers steps.
  2. Installed ntfs-3g using apt-get install and it installed ntfs-3g but it also reported triggers waiting for initramfs update and so it created a new initramfs image file.
  3. I rebuilt uInitrd using this new image file and rebooted twice with errors.
First boot:

INIT: version 2.93 booting

Is the initramfs messed up? Could I go back to the image included with the 5.5.1 kernel package? FWIW, everytime I generate a new uInitrd, it gets bigger. Is it worth looking inside the various versions to compare?

If you want, I can try to put the whole story together.

Update: I unpacked the uInitrd (a copy in the /tmp directory) and found a script had been added by ntfs-3g, hence the need to regenerate it. So, that's understood by me. Makes sense that an app that needs to do something at boot will need to make a change to initramfs.

Mike,

What is your

uname -a
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
ls -lart /boot

Ans try again
apt-get update

See if anything change.

ls -lart /boot

At this point, you need to generate uInitrd before reboot.

Forgot to save the uInitrd that I made today (prior to update-upgrade tonight).

Booted OK from internal SSD with a non-rootfs USB drive connected.

Mike,

Have you installed anything else before on this rootfs? is ntfs-3g the 1st package that you've installed ?

What is your output of

cat /etc/debian_version
dpkg -l | grep ssl

This sounds a lot like my experience with the M300. I can boot off of SSD with something plugged into the USB port, but without that it may or may not boot and if it does it's very unreliable. I hope you guys figure it out because I haven't had any time to try to figure out what's going on. My experience with the M300 hasn't been very good even when I get a reliable boot, so it's been relegated to the bottom of my to-do list.

JT,

Ah. I understood your problem now. Don't have any idea why yet, but I can see that was a strange behavior that happens with a new SSD.

Did you install crytodev or anything like that?
