I keep randomly falling in emergency shell when booting


And I can’t figure it out. Here’s a link to the output of journalctl -xb once logged in the emergency shell after entering the root passord:


Nothing jumps out of the ordinary other than the FS-Cache duplicate things. The funny thing is that it happens randomly every so often when I’m booting. Some times, I get thru, other I get kicked in the emergency shell.

Any hints? I’m running the following kernel:

Linux sulaco.lebel.org 4.17.19-200.fc28.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 24 15:47:41 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I had the same problem in Silverblue fc29. I’m on fedora/28/x86_64/workstation downloaded off the teamsilverblue.org website and updated to the latest “upgrade” (28.20180908.0 (Workstation Edition)).

sep 09 16:12:14 sulaco.lebel.org systemd[1]: ostree-remount.service: Start request repeated too quickly.
sep 09 16:12:14 sulaco.lebel.org systemd[1]: ostree-remount.service: Failed with result 'start-limit-hit'.
sep 09 16:12:14 sulaco.lebel.org systemd[1]: Failed to start OSTree Remount OS/ bind mounts.

I think you are hitting the same thing I hit a few weeks ago. This should be fixed upstream in ostree-2018.8 but that isn’t in f28 or f29 yet. You can workaround by running systemctl edit --full ostree-remount.service and adding RemainAfterExit=yes as shown here.

@walters @jlebon - should we build in f28/f29 ?


And that fixed it! Thanks!!!
