Re: [opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed fails to load after GRUB

Ok I figured out where to add this, but it still doesnt seem to solve
them problem. I dont get any text prompt. The only thing that stands
out form me in the text is what I mentioned previously "sed_opal:
Error on step function: 0 with error 16386: Unknown error".

Waiting enough will start the Dracut prompt again. Is it possible to
at least unlock the encrypted partition from within Dracut?

Is this during grub? I've pressed e on the tumbleweed option and entered it
in but it doesn't seem to recognize these commands.

I don't think it's this issue unfurtunately, but I do have this issue

I'm pretty certain I attempted ctrl+alt+f7 when I saw this. I feel
like this might be something more sinister

That sounds like the bug I have since months: Press Ctlr+Alt+F7 to
switch
to the correct virtual terminal to get the password prompt.

Perhaps you may want to leave a comment there.

Cheers,

I have tried this several times from a fresh install (Tumbleweed
ISO)
and after upgrading from Leap. In both cases, I have an encrypted
LVM
volume that contains system-root, system-home and swap.

The machine boots correctly to GRUB but gets stuck at what seems to
be
plymouth (I think? - it's the loader showing the Tumbleweed
background). Usually at this stage I would get a prompt for my
password to decrypt the drive but that simply never shows up. I
noticed that for a split second I get the error message
"sed_opal:OPAL: Error on step function 0 with error 16386: Unknown
Error".

then try to boot adding
nosplash plymouth.enabled=0

it normally will allow you to boot in text mode, and then certainly have
to
passphrase dialog box to unlock your encrypted things.

At least it is working here at 100%.

Long time ago I've removed all plymouth related packages, it was causing
too
much trouble on my Dell Precision M7510 (hidpi).

the dracut shell you see, appear after the timeout of passphrase prompt.
so it is quite normal.
