|Priority||high||Severity||block||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Platform||Virtual Box 4.2.8||OS||CentOs||OS Version||6.3|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0006301: Upgrade to 6.4 failed|
|Description||Upgrade to 6.4 caused my CentOs to block and never boot.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. I have the latest CentOs 6.3 release.|
2. I issued "yum update" through the command-line and the update was successful.
3. I rebooted the machine.
4. The machine blocks and CentOs never loads.
|Additional Information||I tried shutting down the machine and starting again. Same issue.|
I attached a screenshot where the block happens.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|That's not really helpful (the screenshot). If you press ESC when this screen comes up first, you can see which services are started.|
Indeed, the boot hangs at "Starting jexec services". It doesn't show "fail" or "success", it just hangs there infinitely.
Alternatively, I tried booting to the CLI and disabled the jexec service by running "chkconfig jexec off". I booted again to CentOs and it still hangs but at at the same place (the difference is "Starting jexec services" is no longer displayed).
|So the question would be: What comes after jexec (or atd)? Is there anything to be found on one of the other virtual consoles (you can reach them with CTRL-ALT-F2 to F7)?|
Thanks for taking the time for this. The other virtual consoles are accessible. I attached the screenshot of running the command "startx" in one of those consoles. How do I go about copying the content of a file? (I think the log file can give you more hints).
|try to reinstall graphics card drivers|
|or delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf and it should start without graphics card acceleration|
That did it (removing the conf file). Thank you!
