I have not try the new kernel in testing, I wait for the usual system update.
Today I have upgrade my kernel to the latest version by the Repository. The last is 3.14.23 but this and the previous version 3.14.18 show a black screen after grub (the choice of kernel version). The old kernel version 3.12.25 works.
Today I have update my Mageia 4 to last kernel: after the grub the screen become black ant remain black.
I have choice at the grub level the latest kernel (server 3.14.24-1.mga4) and have press F3, choice failsafe and insert this line:
root=... failsafe resume=UUID=9380... vga=...
the boot is ok until this line:
[ OK ] Reached target Paths
[ OK ] Reached target Sound Card
[Failed] Failed to start Load legacy module configuration.
See 'systemctl status fedora-loamodules.service' for details.
and the system is blocked but ctrl-alt-canc works and the system reboots.
systemctl status fedora-loadmodules.service
fedora-loadmodules.service - Load legacy module configuration
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/fedora-loadmodules.service; static)

Process: 625 ExecStart=/lib/systemd/fedora-loadmodules (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

So my fedora load modules failed to load. Is it a problem? It is a static module.
This output is with kernel 3.12.25 that works. Is the problem with new kernel about this failure?
I have check the log file boot.log:
and have found this failure with kernel 3.12.25 (this kernel works):
$ cat boot.log |grep -n2 fedora

Tadoy I have upgrade my mageia4 to the latest kernel 3.14.39 and after grub it shows black screen for minutes. The old kernel 3.12.25 works fine.
can you attach output of lspcidrake -v
also, try to remove "splash quiet" from grub kernel command line to hopefully catch some more info of why it hangs
Tanks a lot for your reply Thomas. I have do what you ask some times ago and removing "splash quiet" works a lot. The screen shows a lot of information and freeze after the line:
fb: conflicting fb hw usage radeondrmfb vs VESA VGA - removing generic driver
ctrl+alt+canc works and the system reboots
It is the result of lspcidrake:
When I have a photo machine I add a hight resolution screen shot of the boot screen that hang.
is radeon-firmware installed ?
I don't know where to find this infromation. I have execute lsmod (with my working kernel 3.12.25) and ls into firmware directory:
It is my graphic card:
Vendor: âAdvanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]
Description: âRS780L [Radeon 3000]
Module: âCard:ATI Radeon HD 4870 and earlier
Should be provide other info?
ok, so you are missing the nonfree radeon firmware.
Ensure you have the "Nonfree Updates" media enabled, and install radeon-firmware-20140828-1.mga4
it should automatically regenerate the initrds with the needed firmware.
after that, try to boot again with the new 3.14.39 kernel
Very well. I have try and now it is all fine. I have send you an email for a gift to you. kind regards. bug closed.
Hi, good to hear, and sorry for not spotting that earlier.
