Mint 16 Cinnamon x86_64 fully updated (kernel 3.11.0-14-generic).
Drive is encrypted as well as user's home dir.
I had been working for a few days with a new install of Mint 16 and have suspended/restarted without issues until today. Now the boot process hangs, but I can log in via "single" and X works with
The following are the symptoms that I have noticed:
- When the boot process is hung, if I try to log into an alternate tty the login appears to succeed but immediately exits back to a login prompt
Last message in the hung boot process is:
Starting startpar bridge for notification of upstart job start/stop
, of which there are several.
The last message in syslog from hung boot is:
dbus: [system] Successfully activated service 'org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit'
Last line in kern.log is:
kernel: [ 48.127483] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
Things that I recall doing directly before the breakage: installed wine, installed some i386 libs to run a prog in wine, installed clamav, installed
If I start single, and then run "service rcS start" I get the same effect as starting normal. In fact. I have moved all of the S* symlinks out of /etc/rcS.d/ and still experience the issue when starting the rcS service.
If I manually start all of the services in rcS.d, I get no errors. I started them using "service ... start". I'm thinking now that this might be related to upstart?
