[Solved] Centos 7.4 boot stuck

Postby mn » 12. Nov 2017, 19:12

As I posted in [1], the guest addition of the latest VirtualBox 5.2 can not be installed on Centos 7.4. So, I installed VirtualBox 5.0.16. Fortunately, the guest addition installed successfully. However, after a reboot, Centos 7.4 stuck and I now can not see the login page!!

Please try the Guest Additions update from the downloads page[1] instead.

michael, that update seems to have vanished from the downloads page. All I see is a note that there is a problem if 3D acceleration is enabled. Was there a problem with it despite it fixing mm' problem?

Naturally so, since there has been a full maintenance release (5.2.2) since then. Therefore a short term interrim release of the GAs is no longer needed.

@J.Dow
You can always try the test builds, that's where the note was pointing you to in any event...

@J.Dow,
If you want to access that iso file only, I can share that if I am allowed.

@mn
Please don't share it. That file is seriously outdated. There are newer GAs that "J.Dow" can and should use.

Nonetheless the problem it cites seems to still exist. Plymouth cannot exit which stalls the boot process with a wait for it to exit. I do note that if I turn off 3D I can work around it. So it seems the developers are aware of the problem and are working on it. I was hoping to test an interim fix. I've been able to narrow it down somewhat with repeated reboots with restored snapshots. I can wait, though. I do have the disabled 3D workaround.

Exactly. The 5.2.x series, coupled with the ever faster changing Linux distros, have introduced quite a few issues. As it is noted in the Downloads page:
Note: The Guest Additions image with the 5.2.2 release still has some known problems with certain Linux distributions when 3D acceleration is enabled. We hope to provide updated builds here when these are fixed.

I just updated the development series test builds (not yet the 5.2 ones)[1]. The Guest Additions build there should contain an additional fix for the Linux guest hangs with 3D enabled. @J.Dow, please give that a test and we can start again from that point.

socratis, SL 7.x and Centos 7.4 do not change nearly as fast as the Fedora builds. {^_-} I'm using Scientific Linux myself. The VM is a test build for checking updates and learning the famn dool new startup code.

michael, I'll see if I can give a try tomorrow. (I'm a left coast USA night owl.) My REAL acid test will be running USB batch transfers from rtl dongles and airspy dongles for software defined radios once everything else works. BTW - I am on a Windows 7 host at the moment.

I didn't specifically blame/target the CentOS or the Scientific Linux distros. Please re-read my comment, I mentioned 5.2 as the main suspect, because when you're trying to fix a problem, sometimes you open multiple other ones... ;)

No problem socratis. {^_-}

Michael - VirtualBox-5.2.3-119405-Win is not a fix. (I used the guest additions that were included with the installer if that makes a difference.) It locks up the same way with 3D on. It appears to work OK with 3D off. I noticed on sending the shutdown signal rather than powering off that the shutdown halted waiting for gnome to do its thing and go away. I hammered it over the head rather than wait a minute and a half.

For further diagnostic information I noticed that I had to turn off SELinux while I was trying to diagnose how and where it failed. SELinux was complaining about not being able to load the policies as if the install of the guess additions screwed that up, too. This might be a concatenation of several bugs interacting with each other.
