Failed to start "load kernel modules" after full system upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys. Running Arch Linux with KDE on my Thinkpad X260. Been working awesome so far. Unfortunatly, I ran a full system upgrade this evening, and now it gets stuck when systemd tries to start "load kernel modules". I can switch to TTY sessions just fine but am unsure where to start. Any suggestions? If I have to reinstall, not a huge deal, but I'd really prefer not to. Thanks!

How exactly did you upgrade the system? I haven't run my arch machine in a while, but it is important to check if things need manual intervention, when doing so. Is there any relevant messages in dmesg?

Just ran pacman -Syyu. Do it regularly on both my desktop and laptop and have never had any problems. How should I check for dmesg messages, and what in specific am I looking for?

At least on my Gentoo machine,

dmesg | grep -i "search term"

IIRC Arch uses a monolithic kernel, so I'm really curious what modules it's loading. < I was a bit too rusty with this meaning

 

I've just checked the Arch news, and there's nothing that should stop it from booting, at least from the past 6 months. When approximately was the last update?

 

When in a tty, run lsmod to display the loaded modules.

Compare that to the modules listed in the files placed in the /etc/modules-load.d/ directory. This directory is where systemd looks for modules to start at boot.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel_module

 

It would also be useful to look at

systemctl status

to see which services are running correctly, to make sure your display manager is attempting to start or not.

Well I've only had this install for about a month. Last update before this was likely a week or two ago, not quite sure.

 

Running "dmesg | grep -i "systemd-modules-load" shows:

systemd-modules-load.service: Main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
systemd-modules-load.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

@svmlegacy So there's good news and bad news. Good news is, that I got rid of the "load kernel modules" error. The guide you linked helped. Seems tp_smapi was installed which isn't supposed to be on anything newer than the xx30 models. Uninstalled that, rebooted, error is gone. However, it's still not booting into the OS. This time there are no errors, just the usual "starting version 245.6-8-arch", dev/sda1: clean, etc. No errors, nothing. Just a blinking cursor after that. Been sitting on this screen for a few minutes now so it's stuck on something.

In that case, what display manager are you using for KDE (If you haven't changed it, it should be SDDM)?  X or Wayland flavour?

Haha, this one also failed to start. I will try the same trick in the linked guide, see if that gets me anywhere.

Two errors I see in journalctl for SDDM are "failed to read display number from pipe", followed by "display server failed to start. exiting".

 

By the way, is there some way I can copy-paste TTY output to another computer? Is there a program I can use to put it on Pastebin or Google Drive or something?

Interesting. Let's check the Xorg log.

less /var/log/Xorg.0.log

If it isn't there, it might be at

less ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log

 

More info: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#Troubleshooting

________

 

And yes. Check out wgetpaste: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/wgetpaste/

You can also redirect the output of a command to a file, and copy it to a USB. You might have to manually mount it from the TTY.

 

How to redirect an output:

systemctl status sddm > sddm.o

In this case, the outputs are put into a file called sddm.o The file extension is arbitrary and unnecessary.

[     8.588] (II) LoadModule: "intel"
[     8.588] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module intel
[     8.588] (EE) Failed to load module "intel" (module does not exist, 0)

Cool. Now we're starting to see the heart of the problem. It seems the intel module is also not getting loaded at boot.

Double check this with

# lsmod | grep -i intel

**Note: It may also be called i915: I don't have the hardware to test this atm.

 

If it does not appear with that command, feel free to run it without the grep.

Per this article in the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/intel_graphics#Loading

  • Make sure you do not have nomodeset or vga= as a kernel parameter, since Intel requires kernel mode-setting.
  • Also, check that you have not disabled Intel by using any modprobe blacklisting within /etc/modprobe.d/ or /usr/lib/modprobe.d/

It also might be useful to reconfigure the boot loader, as it sets the kernel parameters. Assuming GRUB2:

 

# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

 

P.S. / Edit. Just to be sure, you are using Intel Graphics on this system, correct?

Awesome, thanks. I will give it a shot tomorrow.

 

And yes, I am using Intel HD.
