I recently upgraded to Fedora 32, and the first boot process hanged while waiting for 3 different services, one of them my /home LVM partition to be mounted, lvm2.monitor and something about udev.
After trying a bunch of things, I removed my home partition from /etc/fstab, and masked a few services that were hanging ( as far as I remember networkmanager-wait-for.service and one more), and now my system can boot again.
However, at boot time I have to switch to a terminal using ctrl+alt+F2 and mount /home using
mount /dev/mapper/fedora-home /home
before logging in.
If I add the line back to /etc/fstab, the system hangs again, and I don’t get anything relevant in journal. How can I permanently fix this without reinstalling Fedora?
