Install 11.1RC1 messed up 11.0 install -- help

I loaded opensuse 11.1 RC1 live CD last night to see how it worked.  I
got stuck configuring the network card.  It seemed that the network
switch was off and wouldn't turn on so that even though the firmware was
installed I couldn't get past that issue.  So I decided to go ahead and
install a second copy of opensuse on the machine, so that I would be
about to reconfigure and reboot.  

I have a copy of opensuse 11.0.  I configured 2 new partitions 3.75GB
for the root, 256MB for /var.  I configured it to use the existing 1GB
swap, the existing 1GB /temp, and the existing 1GB /home.  I gave it a
new userid which was different from the one I used in 11.0.  I also told
it to not install a bootloader, because I wanted to configure GRUB on
opensuse 11.0 to load the 11.1RC1.  I currently use NTLDR to load either
windows or opensuse 11.0 and I figured that I would be able to boot to
opensuse 11.0 and configure GRUB to load 11.1.

When time came to boot out of the live CD I booted to windows and then
booted to opensuse 11.0.  The boot to opensuse 11.0 failed with these
messages as the last 3 lines.

Code: Bad EIP value
EIP: [<000000a1>] 0xa1 SS:ESP 0068:c0481d44
Kernel panic - not syncing : Fatal exception in interrupt.

Why would the 11.0 be affected by an install to a completely separate
system partition.

I'm a stumped as what to do next.  It seems that 11.0 has been
corrupted somehow and that 11.1 is not bootable as a result because I
can't get to GRUB.

I verified the CD media before I loaded the live CD.

Any suggestions short of reinstalling both systems?

Hi Leslie,

Bad EIP value messages often indicate a mismatch between your kernel
and hardware.

In this case, but not sure about this.. it could have to do with having
a different/shifted partition layout.

I've never used the NTLDR to load a non Windows OS (as its always given
me issues)... so I can't help you with that configuration.

A first thing whould be to boot with the LiveCD.
if you could post the output of ' fdisk -l ' we can see what your
partition layout looks like.
You can also check if the openSUSE 11.0 partition is ok.

Is Windows your main OS? I'm thinking it might be a good time to let
GRUB be the bootmanager on your system. With GRUB you have more control
how to boot what (as also more troubleshooting options). Switching to
GRUB can mean some downtime from Windows, just until you've set the
right options in GRUB.

I booted to my opensuse 11.0 live cd.  (It took 2 times because I first
had my SD card in the notebook and it hung on the boot.  I saw this
before with 11.0 live cd but I didn't see it with 11.1 RC live cd !)  

Here are some listings.

This looks right.  I have 3 extended windows partitions.  They are
basically place holders for when I reinstall windows (another project),
so I won't mess up the linux partition numbering.

/dev/sda9 is /home
/dev/sda10 is /var for opensuse 11.0
/dev/sda11 is /temp 
/dev/sda12 is / for opensuse 11.0
/dev/sda13 is / for opensuse 11.1
/dev/sda14 is /var for opensuse 11.1

I mounted /dev/sda9, /dev/sda12, /dev/sda13 and did some ls -l and
listings of files.  The directory and file structure seems ok.

Here are listings for the grub menu and device files on opensuse 11.0.

I don't know what else to look at.

Windows is my main system, but I can temporarily write over the mbr and
put it back.  I have a copy of it saved.   I've been happy with using
the ntldr for windows and opensuse but I wondered about grub and adding
a second (and third) linux and whether to use the same method where I
overwrote the windows mbr and saved a copy of the mbr for the second
linux and referenced it in the linux boot.ini file.  This would I think
give me grub menus for all the linux systems independent of each other. 
I tried to do something different.  I wanted  to use the main grub
system and have it refer to each linux system while referring to the
main linux system in ntldr.  That was what I was trying to do.  I  still
need to figure that out, but right now I'd like to get both linux
installations operational again.

I installed linux as a learning experience, to see how well they
worked.  It seems that when I encounter an issue I usually have to solve
several before the original can be fixed if at all.

Wow... that are *allot* of partitions! :)

The partitions seem to match with your grub's menu.1st configuration.
So a partition shift does not seem to be the suspect.

Looking at your partitions the thought now crosses my mind.. how did
you shrink the openSUSE 11.0 partition? Or didn't you shrink it.
You could run a fsck from the LiveCD to see if the filesystem is
consistent.

Out of interest.. why are you creating partitions for the /var and
/temp directories?  Seems this makes it overly complex.

Seems like that plan could work... but with my inexperience with using
NTLDR as bootloader, I wouldn't know if this is causing the issue. I
would think if the setup worked with 11.0 it should also work with 11.0
and 11.1 combined.

It might be a better option to use a special bootloader application to
manage all these partitions.

BootIt NG (Terrabyte) has been my trusty tool for quite a while now.
You can set it up so each system only sees it's own (or shared)
partitions. This lets me give every system primary partitions keeping
boot problems to a minimum.
Another nice feature is that you can image and restore from within your
boot manager. Makes testing all the more simple.

It might be a smoother ride by starting with a dedicated system (or a
more simplistic partition setup). Linux does have a learning curve.. My
experience as of 10.3, is that less issues pop up and the biggest
challenge is checking if your hardware is properly supported.

These forums are generally a good place to drop you questions.. I'll
think you'll see that the more you get into Linux the prettier it gets
;)

Now to get you booting again!  I'd first suggest to check the openSUSE
11.0 partition for errors.
After try swapping the MBR code so GRUB gets boot priority.

Wishing you luck,
Wj

I used the windows bootloader for my multiboot arrangement. Grub has a
nasty habit of occassionally stepping on the windows boot sector and
rendering the mbr unusable. It's happened to me (coronary arrest) and i
got to learn how to use the fixmbr command from the winxp install disk..
:).
My situation is somewhat complicated since my windows environment is
dualboot win98se/winxp with lots of partitions formatted in FAT32 (for
compatibility with win98) and some ntfs in addition. There is an
excellent how-to at swerdna's site... 'Boot Multiboot openSUSE Windows
(2000, XP, Vista - any mix) with Windows bootloader.'
(http://www.swerdna.net.au/linhowtoboot1.html) for those so inclined.

I did not change any of the existing partitions.  I had about 8 GB of
free space of which I used about 4GB for the 2 new partitions used for
opensuse 11.1 / and /var.

I had a couple of reasons to partition linux that way.  One is that I
had very limited space (I also wanted to eventually try 3 different
linuxes) and a potential need for a fairly large /tmp. I wanted
something large enough for temp files in burning CDs and making ISOs and
other uses I didn't know about.  I wanted to share some partitions that
would enable me to reduce the size of each root partitions.  Also I
understood that if /tmp or /var fills up the root partition then the
system would crash.  If they were on separate partitions then the system
doesn't crash and you have time and space to recover.  I actually
experienced this while I was trying to get the wireless internet
working.  A log in /var filled up the remaining unused space of the
256MB so that my system became virtually unusable.  I was however able
to find the log file, rename the log file, restart the system/subsystem
(I forget how), delete the file and have the system work again.  Simply
rebooting did not work.  After that I decided it was worth the trouble
to have a /var partition for each linux I installed.  I had initially
decided to try it with one.  A third reason is related to backups. 
Although I don't have a backup of these partitions yet, I wanted to be
able to back them up without copying  a lot of temp space.  Separating
/tmp from the root helps with this.  I'm not so sure about /var.

I ran fsck on partition 9, 10, 12, 13, 14 and the result seemed to be
clean.

I wrote all this and then decided to attempt a reboot into opensuse
11.0 before overwriting the MBR.  I wondered if there was an issue with
the partition table either in the linux code on windows or in opensuse
11.0 that couldn't handle the new partitions added.  I don't understand
why that might be but it was really the only thing I could figure that
was external to opensuse 11.0 that might give a panic attack.  When I
rebooted it worked.   I'm having trouble accounting for this.  Either I
do have a hardware problem or it is related to the addition of two
partitions on boot causing a problem which was corrected somehow.

So now I need to setup grub to boot opensuse 11.1 from opensuse 11.0. 
I am concerned that I made a poor choice when I installed opensuse 11.0
but I will look at that in the morning.  I'm too tired to work any more
on it tonight.  It is nice to have opensuse 11.0 up and running again. 


I looked at the Boot Multiboot openSUSE Windows (2000, XP, Vista - any
mix) with Windows bootloader site 'Boot Multiboot openSUSE Windows
(2000, XP, Vista - any mix) with Windows bootloader.'
(http://www.swerdna.net.au/linhowtoboot1.html)
He uses bootloader installed on root instead of the MBR like I used. 
But it may work better than what I had planned.  I'll need to try out
the options once I get opensuse 11.1 to actually boot.

Could this be what was causing your initial issue?

I must say you are very thorough! There's been good thought about the
way you have set up the partitions.
For myself, I'd rather have some more space for two systems then try to
fit three on. But I'm a space munger (somewhat like the cookie monster)
with all my downloads and all... ;)

Using the included backup utility in openSUSE, even though it's a
'simple' utility, you can exclude all those directories you don't want
to include. Could be an option.

Hope you have (had) a nice rest as these things can be a true energy
drain!

Members mingus725 & swerdna are two I know of that are quite handy in
setting up different boot scenarios.

I think you'd get a good response by opening a new post in the boot
section asking for support on multiboot.
They might give you some new insights on what you want to achieve.

Wishing you luck,

I did have the SD card in the machine when I first attempted to boot
suse 11.0 after installing 11.1 and before completing the install boot
to 11.1, but I had had that card in the machine when booting suse 11.0
before with no problem.  Only the 11.0 liveCD seems to cause a problem.


Once I loaded suse 11.0 I edited the grub file  with the following
lines.


Code:
--------------------
    title OpenSUSE 11.1 RC1
  root (hd0,12)
  kernel (hd0,12)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27.7-4-default root=/dev/sda13 resume=/dev/sda8 splash=verbose showopts vga=0x317
  initrd (hd0,12)/boot/initrd-2.6.27.7-4-default
--------------------


These lines allowed me to access the installation even though I had not
installed the grub bootloader in the root or the MBR.  At this point I
think that loading it in the root and copying the boot sector into
windows and adding code to the boot.ini file is probably a good thing to
try, but I've been able to boot multiple times.  

Thanks for your help. 

Leslie

Hi Leslie,

Glad you've been able to set it up now, you've been the brains here...
not me! 
Hope you now get to enjoy the fruits of your labour!

Cheers,
Wj

Inspiron 1000 install problem (11.1, 11.2, net install, dvd install)
Ok, I have a plain jane Inspiron 1000, 2ghz celeron, 256m ram, 40gig hd, dvd. I burned 11.2 to dvd, 11.1 to dvd, tried installing both.

Firefox 2.0.0.10 closes automatically to install update to 2.0.0.11
Hi, who on earth implemented this stupid thing that Firefox 2.0.0.10 closes automatically without any warning to install an update to 2.0.0.11. I might appreciate an automatic update feature but I hate that an update is done without any user pre-warning. I can not accept that Firefox shutdowns itself to install an update. I was just accessing my mailbox to write an email and this was gone due to the unexpected shutdown. Please avoid such stupid things in future!

11.2 install failure but 11.1 to 11.2 upgrade (partial) success
