Boot error - Solved

Postby mistergil » 13 Nov 2014 19:16

Hi,
Since the recent upgrade I've been having delays in boot-up and occasionally during shutdown.
Bootlogd shows the following:

#[0m#[31m* #[0m] A start job is running for dev-disk-by\x2duuid-2cecf8dc\x2d57ed\x2d41cd\x2dbb01\x2d9010d49a4f41.device
#[K[#[1;31m*#[0m#[31m*
TIME #[0m] Timed out waiting for device dev-disk-by\x2duuid-2cecf8dc\x2d57ed\x2d41cd\x2dbb01\x2d9010d49a4f41.device.
[#[1;33mDEPEND#[0m] Dependency failed for /dev/disk/by-uuid/2cecf8dc-57ed-41cd-bb01-9010d49a4f41.
[#[1;33mDEPEND#[0m] Dependency failed for Swap.

The "start job running" repeats many times in the log (which I have removed to save posting space here) until it times out as indicated above. This is apparently something with the new update kernel as I've not run across it before. I believe, but am not certain, that this is also related to the shutdown hang as there is a message when it occurs related to a start/stop job running.

The system functions normally when up and running without issues but would appreciate any insight into correcting it.
Thanks.

Edit:
I believe I may have stumbled across the problem:
fstab shows /dev/sda2 as the swap partition. (#1,#2,#3 partitions).
swapon shows the swap partition as /dev/sda4.
Gparted doesn't show a sda2 partition but does show a /dev/sda4 (#1,#3,#4 partitions)
#1 is /
#3 is /home

This seems to have occurred with the last kernel update. Appreciate it if someone could advise how to correct it.
Thanks

Here's what I did to fix it just in case anyone else runs across it:

I checked the correct UUID for the partition using

Code: Select all

sudo blkid
then modified the fstab line using

Code: Select all

gksudo mousepad /etc/fstab
to reflect the correct sda/4 partition and the correct UUID.

Hopefully it will stay all better now :)
