i’m stuck at boot with the following message:
“A start job is running for Monitoring of LVM2 mirrors, snapshots etc. using dmeventd or progress polling”
I waited 30 mins,… still running.
Any idea what could prevent this service from coming to an end?
mask the lvm2-monitor service as stated here.
In the article linked above they tell you to start from a live-stick and chroot the local environment to mask the lvm2-monitor service. This wasn’t possible for me, cause the live-stick boot procedure gets stuck at the same point.
My disk setup looks like following:
Disk1 (SSD) and Disk2 (SSD) as a RAID0: System data (/, /home, etc.)
Disk3 (HDD) and Disk4 (HDD) as a RAID1: Personal data
I just disabled Disk3 and Disk4 via UEFI and now fedora is booting.
Mask the service:
sudo systemctl mask lvm2-monitor.service
Enable Disk3 and Disk4 again and you’re good to go.
I had this problem on a freshly installed Fedora 33 Workstation
I waited patiently, then hammered CTRL-ALT-DEL (more than 7 times in 2s to force reboot). And then I had to wait patiently some more.
Then I noticed that there was activity on the LiveUSB stick still in the port. I removed it. Activity resumed. Booting properly became possible.
This seems to have autosolved the problem. No masking needed.
